Divorces are complex enough on their own, and you don’t need a divorce attorney to make things more challenging for you. That’s why I structured my law practice to provide focused, comprehensive, and expert support for each client that I serve.
When going through a legal divorce in Texas, you will have to make a series of very difficult decisions. You want to have someone in your corner who cares about the outcome and will be with you every step of the way on the path to finalizing the divorce.
If you live in the Katy, Texas area, then I invite you to find out more about the benefits of working with a Katy divorce lawyer who will serve as a fierce advocate on your behalf.
Why Work with a Local Divorce Lawyer in Katy, Texas?
When going through a divorce, there will be a series of consultations and meetings to discuss critical matters. You will want to work with a local divorce lawyer who is easily accessible and available to help answer your questions and walk you through complex issues that you may not have ever considered before.
For example, you will need to make decisions about issues such as:
- Which assets you want to fight to retain (e.g., home, vehicle, and monetary items)
- How to divide up current liabilities (e.g., who is responsible for credit card debt?)
- Whether alimony will be required (known as spousal maintenance in Texas)
- The type of child custody you want to pursue (e.g., joint custody vs. full custody) if you have children through the marriage
- How the children should be parented
- How certain medical bills will be paid for each child
- Visitation hours with the children (known as the standard possession schedule)
- Child custody payments made by you or received by you – depending on which side of the divorce you are on
Depending on the nature of your case, there may be other complicated issues that need to be talked through and discussed. This could cause the divorce timeline to be extended for months. During this time, you will want to work with a local, expert divorce attorney who will patiently walk you through each legal issue and how to make a decision that fits your need.
Working with an expert family law attorney is important because one decision affects another. For example, you need to protect your interests in certain assets (such as your home) so that you can prove to a judge that you have the ability to provide a home for your children that will support your argument for custody.
The Texas Family Code compels judges to primarily act in the best interest of children when making legal decisions. If you lose all of your assets during the divorce, then it would appear to a judge that you do not have the ability to provide a home environment that supports the well-being of your children.
That’s why protecting your parental rights at the outset of the divorce is critical to ensure that you can maintain a strong position throughout the entire divorce process. When you work with me, I will protect your rights and help you make difficult decisions about which battles are worth fighting for on the path to finalizing the divorce.
Find Legal Support Navigating the Family Court System
Throughout the divorce process, there will be court hearings to review progress on the path to finalizing the divorce. Then, there will be a final hearing where the judge will approve the final divorce decree that contains all of the conditions and stipulations in the divorce.
These court hearings will test your patience and could lead to contentious or emotional exchanges with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. You will want an expert attorney in your corner who is deeply involved in the case, can expertly apply the law to your situation, and can help you provide the appropriate answers to the court.
