When a couple decides to get a divorce in Texas, the division of assets is typically one of each person's top concerns. However, many types of assets -- such as stock options and restricted stock -- could slip through the cracks when making these decisions. These types of assets should always be considered within the divorce proceedings to ensure that the assets are fairly divided between each party.
Texas spouses who are considering filing for divorce often focus on the tangible matters surrounding the end of a marriage. Child custody, property division and other details often dominate the process. It can be easy to forget that divorce involves an emotional component, as well. This is especially true for individuals who are not accustomed to acknowledging or showing their emotions. Recent research suggest that men are particularly vulnerable to negative health consequences that come from divorce, which could be tied to their lack of emotional coping skills.
