Whether you are facing a contested divorce or uncontested divorce our family law attorneys will work with you to outline your divorce goals and prepare you for your case.
Not all family disagreements can be solved with flowers and a heartfelt apology. When you find it necessary to take the next step, have a compassionate attorney at your side who will help you work towards an amenable resolution for all parties.
Mediators may be able to help you and your spouse get over the emotional barriers to negotiation and come to a sensible divorce agreement that meets both of your needs. Unlike lawyers, mediators work with both spouses at the same time. They don't represent the individual spouses' interests, the way a lawyer does. Instead, mediators facilitate a negotiation between the spouses that, in most cases, results in an agreement satisfactory to both sides.
Property Related Issues
Texas is a community property state, which means that most property acquired during marriage belongs to both spouses and must be divided at divorce. In contrast, each spouse gets to keep his or her separate property when the marriage ends. We will help you determine what property is considered community and seperate.
Post Marital Agreement
A post-marital agreement is a contract between existing spouses that can determine an array of issues should a divorce occur. Post-marital contracts usually control the distribution of assets or property in a divorce, but can also control many other issues that may be important to the particular couple, including temporary and permanent support, division of assets and debts, confirmation of separate and community property, or even who gets custody of the family pet.
Marriage is love and a contract. Once the love is gone, all you have left is the contract. A prenuptial agreement is a document that allows you to contract around Texas law. People use prenuptial agreements to document the separate property they are bringing into a marriage.
Spousal maintenance or alimony is money paid to your ex to maintain a standard of living they were used to during your marriage.
Complex Property Division
Determining the division of property is often a complex process for couples at any income level. However, those with extensive marital assets such as executive compensation packages, family-owned businesses, investment portfolios or multiple real properties, often face additional complications in determining a fair property division settlement. We specialize in complex property divison such as these.
