A Few Things You Should Know About Divorce In Texas

Feuding CoupleIn our Tarrant County divorce practice, we’ve helped thousands of clients navigate one of life’s most difficult events.  As leading Texas divorce lawyers with over 20 years’ experience,  we do all we can to help our clients move through divorce simply as possible so they can get on with their lives.

What’s the difference between a simple divorce and one that drags on for years and costs thousands of dollars?  Here are a few things to consider:

  • Time is money.  How much in legal fees do you intend to spend fighting over a particular asset? Do you really want to pay your divorce attorney $1,000 to fight over that flat-screen TV?
  • You are still on the hook for your bills no matter what your divorce decree says.  If you signed your name to a mortgage or other credit agreement, you have a continuing obligation to the creditor no matter what your divorce decree says.  Don’t spend time in your divorce trying to transfer debts to your spouse when your creditors don’t care and are not bound by your divorce decree.
  • Figure out your kids.  Texas family law favors both parents having meaningful involvement with their children after divorce.  Sure, there are details to work out, but there are many ways to create a workable parenting plan for your children besides arguing your case to a busy Dallas divorce court judge.
