The Importance Of The Divorce Decree

It is not an exaggeration to say that the divorce decree will have a huge impact on the quality of your life. Among other things, the decree will:

  • Determine property division for your family
  • Determine your child custody and visitation rights
  • Determine what kind of relationship you will have with your children in the years ahead
  • Determine the course of your children’s lives
  • Determine the child support you will receive or pay

The divorce decree will have a big impact on your future; it is vital to have an attorney you trust.

We Know Bexar County

We are at the Bexar County Courthouse in San Antonio nearly every day, representing our clients in family law cases. There are 14 judges at the courthouse who hear divorce cases, and we know what each judge expects and demands from attorneys, as well as how they tend to rule on specific issues.

Perhaps more importantly, the judges know that we are always prepared. We provide well-reasoned arguments that are in the best interests of our clients, and we are respectful, ethical and forthright. As a result, the court carefully considers our arguments.

Cutting Through Confusion: Answers To Your Divorce Questions

Divorce can raise many questions. Here are some answers to clarify the process and your options in Texas:

What are the grounds for divorce in Texas?

Texas is a no-fault divorce state, meaning you only need to cite “insupportability” (irreconcilable differences) to file. There are also fault-based grounds like adultery or cruelty, but these are not necessary.

Who determines how assets/businesses are divided in a divorce?

Texas is a community property state. Generally, all property acquired during the marriage is considered marital property and subject to division. The court divides assets and debts fairly but not necessarily equally. For complex assets like businesses, valuations and expert involvement may be needed.

What’s an uncontested divorce?

An uncontested divorce occurs when you and your spouse agree on all divorce terms, including child custody, property division and spousal support. This simplifies the process and can be significantly less expensive than a contested divorce.

Can I get a divorce without going to court?

Yes, uncontested divorces often go through mediation, where a neutral third party helps you reach agreements. An attorney can guide you through this process and ensure a fair outcome.

Every divorce is unique. Consulting with an attorney experienced in Texas family law is the best way to understand your options and move forward with confidence.
