Choosing to engage in divorce proceedings is not an easy decision. There are seven grounds for divorce in the State of Texas which include adultery, cruelty, abandonment, insupportability, living apart, felony conviction and the commitment of a spouse to a mental institution.
Depending on the nature of your situation, pursuing a divorce can be a simple or complex matter. Some factors that determine the complexity of your divorce include whether or not children are involved and whether you and your spouse own joint assets. Unfortunately, most divorces are not that simple. Custody disputes and questions of support, finances and the distribution of joint assets can prolong a divorce proceeding for months or even years.
Obtaining legal assistance when considering a divorce is a wise decision. After an evaluation of your case, our firm can gather necessary evidence on your behalf. If you wish to settle your case and not argue any issues in front a Judge or Jury, our firm can negotiate a fair and equitable settlement on your behalf. If some of your issues remain unresolved after an attempted settlement, we will provide the professional representation you need in front of a Judge or Jury.
Divorces can be time consuming and costly, especially if you and your spouse carry joint assets in your name (such as a house, 401K account, vehicles, etc.). Custody arrangements can also be time consuming because in some instances the Court will order a social worker to determine which living environment is best for the child or children involved. For theses reasons, we strongly recommend that you allow our firm to evaluate your case and help you come to an agreement with your spouse that is fair and equitable for both parties.
Regardless of the circumstances that brought you to engage in divorce proceedings, our firm is eager to assist you. Our firm takes pride in providing unbiased and invaluable advice that will enable you to move forward as quickly and fairly as possible.
