Important Things to Remember When Facing A Divorce or Other Family Issue

Get an Outside Perspective: All too often, people facing a divorce become so consumed by their situation that they run the risk of doing or saying something they will regret. This is understandable because family issues are the most emotionally charged, and taxing. An experienced divorce/family law attorney can help you focus your energy on a positive long-term outcome and provide you with a “cooler head” when needed.

Divorce Law in Texas

Texas supports what is called a “no-fault” divorce, and a fault-based divorce. A no fault divorce can be obtained by mutual agreement of the husband and wife. A fault-based divorce is brought by one of the parties because the other party has committed an act in violation of the marriage laws (see below).

  • No Fault Divorce: Texas supports a no fault divorce where both parties agree that the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict that destroys the marital relationship and prevents reasonable reconciliation.
  • Fault Based Divorce: A fault-based divorce can be obtained if one or more of the parties has committed any of the following: Cruelty, Adultery, Conviction of a Felony, Abandonment, Living Apart for at least 3 Years, and Confinement in a Mental Hospital. For specific information regarding any of these, contact an Abilene divorce attorney by filling out the questionnaire on your left.

How Can an Abilene Divorce Attorney Help You?

When a marriage ends, you face a wall of questions. Not the least of which is who gets what and in what quantities? The questions are complicated by the presence of children. Because divorce is common, the law can provide a solution to all of these questions. However, reaching a satisfactory outcome is possible. The biggest obstacles to reaching an agreement between divorcing spouses are often emotional ones that dissipate over time. An Abilene attorney can help you avoid the pitfalls of not reaching an agreement. Parties that insist on the judge dividing the relationships and property in an equitable fashion are often disappointed. Many people face child custody schemes that are rigid and almost impossible to change once in place. When a rigid custody scheme is in place spontaneous activities like taking your child to the Abilene Zoo or enjoying a game of laser tag at Prime Time can be out of the question. Additionally, wage garnishment can be humiliating and unnecessary but the result of a failure to reach a deal with your ex-spouse. Consult an Abilene family law attorney and understand your options under the law.
