Going Your Separate Ways
It doesn’t matter if your divorce was a long time coming or hit like a bolt of lightning. Either way, your life will be changing in ways that may be dramatic and not always welcome. The fact that your marriage is ending may not seem fair, and the way the law handles divorce can sometimes feel like it’s adding insult to injury. Some spouses may be able to work out most of the logistics of their divorce on their own. But often couples disagree on important issues like child custody, division of assets and spousal support. Having an experienced divorce attorney in your corner who has compassion for what you’re going through can go a long way to easing your transition to the next phase of life.
We Aim To Avoid Trial
To the extent that we’re able, our south Texas firm tries to avoid taking divorce cases to trial. We know from experience that people going through divorce are often emotionally exhausted and financially strapped. We also know that it’s hard to make important legal decisions about family matters with a clear head under those conditions. By avoiding trial, we aim to keep our clients’ stress levels under control so they’re able to make the best possible decisions for themselves. And there potentially are a lot of logistical aspects of a divorce to juggle, including:
- Child support, custody and visitation
- Distribution of assets, including retirement, property and investments
- Child Protective Services (CPS) issues
- Domestic violence charges
- Spousal support
Working through arbitration or mediation can significantly reduce the costs of getting a divorce and can give the two parties a greater sense of control over the outcome. When spouses can’t agree and end up fighting in court, costs can quickly escalate, and a judge will have more say in the final divorce settlement.
