WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DIVORCE IN TEXAS
Expert Negotiation is Key
Divorce is a complex legal process involving a detailed investigation and analysis of each spouse’s behavior and finances. In many situations, both parties agree to the divorce and are willing to negotiate about how assets are divided. However, in a contested divorce, couples do not agree about the division of assets, child support, custody or other terms of the divorce. In a contested divorce, it is critical to work with an attorney to ensure assets are split fairly.
Build a Strategy to Meet Your Goals
One of the first steps in building a strategy for your divorce is discussing property division. Because Texas is a community property state, any property that an individual acquires during their marriage is automatically considered marital property to be split equally with their spouse in a divorce. If you and your spouse have significantly different incomes, another important consideration is alimony payments. Finally, the most important goal during a divorce is the well-being of any children involved. Our priority in divorces involving child custody and child support is to try to keep both parents involved in raising the children. We focus on achieving a custody arrangement that is in the best interests of the children, you and your spouse.
