When Texas residents go to sell a home during or after a divorce, they want a big return on their initial investment. This can be difficult, particularly in a weaker housing market or if the home must be sold quickly. Fortunately, there are some basic, simple things homeowners can do to increase the value of their home before it sells.

According to the Insider, it may be a good ideal to sell a home in the summer or spring if possible. Home values tend to rise during these seasons and can provide heightened competition. If the homeowner is not pressed to sell the home quickly, it may be easier to price it at the peak during these seasons.

One simple thing that homeowners can do that often gets overlooked is to simply make sure everything is functional. If there is a leak in a faucet or a cupboard that does not open, fixing those things can make a huge difference when potential buyers start walking through the home. A simple fix like a new microwave can provide a larger return on investment.

Texan couples like you who decide to get a divorce will also have to decide how to split up your assets. Unfortunately, not every spouse is going to be honest about the amount of assets they have to give.

It can be all too easy for someone to hide assets, especially in a high-asset divorce. There is an element of “hiding in plain sight” that some people may employ, using the large number of assets you must keep track of in order to get away with hiding smaller portions.

Some common signs that a spouse may be hiding assets can include secrecy, irritability, and a refusal to show you documents such as bank account information or receipts.

During any time of the year, disputes that revolve around child custody can be the most difficult part of the divorce process for many parents. However, during holidays, such as Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and so on, custody disputes can be particularly hard. Not only do parents and children sometimes suffer from an emotional standpoint, but families may be distracted by holiday celebrations. It can be hard to accept the ways in which life has changed due to a divorce, especially on holidays.

Some parents postpone their divorce until holidays have passed, while others find themselves in a drawn-out divorce that carries on through multiple holiday celebrations. Even after a divorce, parents may have uncertainty about how the holidays will work out due to visitation and custody matters. If you anticipate a bitter custody dispute coming up during a holiday, it is imperative to focus on your case and do what you can to ensure that holiday celebrations do not interfere with your custody case or other aspects of your divorce.

Approaching your divorce in the right way may make the process easier for the entire family and having a clear understanding of the best approach is very valuable. You should review the unique aspects of your custody case and other factors that may influence how it pans out, such as your employment situation and daily schedule. Ultimately, the best interests of your child should always be a top concern, and you may have to discuss what is happening with your child in order to minimize the emotional toll of a custody dispute.

One of the major considerations in parents' decision to divorce involves their dependent children. Even couples who plan to fight in divorce court are anxious to protect their children from trauma and drama.

Parents who have a child with special needs are particularly concerned. They must face making long-term plans covering complex medical, emotional and financial needs.
