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 Fort Worth divorce attorney by filling out the questionnaire on your left.
How Can a Fort Worth Divorce Attorney Help You?
Regardless of whether you live in Westover Hills or Richland Hills, when you are faced with divorce protecting yourself and any children you might have is your number one priority. However, coming to a satisfactory agreement is often prevented by emotional issues and competitive feelings. Couples are often too close to the situation to skip over the small less important issues go and focus on the big picture. Failing to reach an agreement can mean that the court will take matters into its hands. Unfortunately, when the judge has to make the decisions for you a hatchet will be used when a scalpel is what is necessary. Court ordered agreement s are also rigid and, once in place, difficult to change. Judges have little time or patience to change things once the gavel has dropped. Fortunately, a skilled Fort Worth divorce lawyer can help you keep your eyes on the big picture so you can reach an agreement before the judge makes a ruling. Too much is at stake to leave your prosperity and the prosperity of your children up to the court. Consult an experienced Fort Worth family law attorney today and learn how you can get the best outcome in a divorce proceeding.
