Family Law

Choosing a divorce lawyer is an important step in what many people consider the most emotional time in their lives. I understand that going through the dissolution of a marriage can consume your thoughts every minute of the day. Filing for divorce signifies the end of what you hoped would be the foundation for your family.

Due to the high emotional nature of ending a marriage, costs can quickly skyrocket and your future path can become unclear. I believe that by listening to your goals, setting realistic expectations, and providing timely feedback I can get the results you desire, while keeping costs low.

UNCONTESTED DIVORCE

If you and your spouse have agreed on the terms of your divorce, I will work with you to finalize those terms and ensure the loose ends are tied up. Typically, if the parties agree on separation of the assets, child custody, and child support, the petition can be filed within two weeks. At that point, you must wait 60 days for the court to approve the final decree. Most cases can be resolved with only one party attending court.

If you believe that you do not require an attorney, you can visit TexasLawHelp.org for online forms and information.

CONTESTED DIVORCE

While going through a divorce is emotional, facing a contested divorce can invoke emotions and feelings you never thought possible. The best way to get through a contested divorce is to have a good support group, focus on your health and well-being, and to choose an attorney who will guide you through the process.

Some of the most common complaints about attorneys are that they fail to listen to their clients’ needs, they provide unrealistic expectations, and they fail to communicate. Beginning with our first meeting, I will listen to all of your concerns and questions. I will explain the expectations you should have for an outcome. And I will keep you updated on the developments in your case.
