Divorce

At its core, divorce is the legal process of separating the assets you and your spouse earned during the marriage. The law provides that the court is to divide the property in a way that is just and right. The court will also divide and award you property that came into your possession prior to the marriage. Another key aspect of our job will be to help ensure that the court is dividing the marital property fairly, so that an unreasonable attorney or spiteful spouse does not take advantage of you.

 

Martial property includes everything you owned during the marriage: your house, bank accounts, oil and gas interests, jewelry, shares of stock, retirement benefits, even livestock and cattle. Sometimes, your spouse may try to hide or conceal his property from you, and we will need to hunt down the missing assets for you.

 

Our areas of practice include:

 

  • Military Divorce

  • Qualified Domestic Relations Order

  • Enforcing Divorce Decrees

  • Complex and large asset Divorce

  • International Divorce

  • Multi-State Divorce

  • Forensic accounting

  • Private investigations

  • Uncontested Divorce

  • Divorce with children

  • Spousal maintenance or alimony

  • Nullification

  • Pre-nuptial agreement

  • Post-nuptial agreement

  • Corporate or entity implications for Divorce

The first step in the divorce proceeding is service of the petition for divorce. If you are the first to file, then we will have your spouse served with the divorce papers. But if you are the respondent, then we will answer the divorce and file a counter-claim with the court.

 

If you are served with a divorce petition and a temporary restraining order, you need to retain an attorney immediately. It is vital that you hire an attorney because it is likely that the court has ordered a hearing with a couple of weeks or even days after the process server serves you.

 

A divorce proceeding can be initiated against you if you don’t live in Texas or even in the United States. These multi-state jurisdictional issues complicate the case and require our expertise. 

 

Whatever your circumstances, we will work to provide you with relief and support during this trying process, so that you can begin to have control of your life once again. And if that requires going to court, we will aggressively advocate for your interests. Have questions? Call our attorneys at (325) 232-8218 to schedule a consultation!
