Same-name Couple is Divorcing

When a couple decides to get divorced, there are a lot of issues that need to be settled. Matters such as the division of marital assets and spousal support must be worked out before the divorce can be finalized. For some in this situation, there is sometimes another issue that has to be decided, and that is whether to keep her married name or revert to her maiden name.

For one woman, however, this will not be an issue. Our Houston readers may be interested in a story about a couple with the same first and last names. In 2008, the woman was searching Facebook for people with her last name. During her search, she found a man about her age who had both the same first and last name as she did. She sent him a message to say hello.

That message led to the man eventually traveling from Texas to Florida to meet the woman. A romance blossomed, and the couple married in 2009. In late 2012, the couple filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

The woman hasn't been reached for comment, but the man stated that they gave the marriage a shot but that they were from two different worlds and just couldn't make it work. The man also said, however, that the two have remained friends.

Although not all marriages end this amicably, there are things a parting couple can do to alleviate some of the stress and emotions that a divorce creates. Divorcing couples should learn about their rights regarding assets, property division and alimony. This knowledge can help make the process less painful.

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me. D.

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.

My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
