Divorce Law

We can help you navigate the divorce process in a convenient, cost-effective, more agreeable way.

Making the decision to file for divorce is perhaps one of the most difficult things a person can do. Frankly, it sucks. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be messy and it does not have to back you into bankruptcy. The average cost ranges from $12,000-27,000+ (each). The whole process can easily be drawn out for months or sometimes years. We can help walk you through the process, provide honest no BS advice to advance your case, and substantially reduce the cost.

DIVORCE FAQS

Do I have to prove that my spouse is the reason I can’t stay married?

Texas is a “no fault” divorce state, meaning that you do not have to have specific grounds for divorce. You only need to state that the marriage has become insupportable. 

My spouse and I don’t want to spend a lot of money. We just want to make sure to do things right.

Divorce does NOT need to send you in to bankruptcy or deplete your child’s college savings.  An attorney is extremely valuable, but in many cases, a full representation attorney is trained to be adversarial.  That means more hours of $, more drama, more time to get to the ending you want. Find an attorney who will be able to advise you on what to include, avoid, ask, share, etc and make sure that when you go in front of the judge, it’s an easy peasy experience.  Obviously, this won’t work for all situations, but there are many couples who benefit from legal advice that gets them where they need quickly, effectively and doesn’t cost many thousands of dollars.

What kinds of things do I need to consider in my divorce?

Think of the big things that affect your everyday life and pocketbook and how you need to divide:

  1.  House
  2.  Stuff – your record player, the couch, the cars
  3.  Debt – student loans, credit cards, car notes, mortgage
  4.  Bank Accounts
  5.  Retirement Accounts
  6.  Investments
  7.  Last but certainly not least, children – where will they live, what does visitation look like, who pays for insurance, what about holidays …. That list can go on and on.
