Considering Divorce? Why You Need an Attorney
When divorce may be looming in your future, there are naturally many uncertainties you face and concerns you may have.
There are many laws and requirements regarding divorce in Texas and the process can be confusing, especially if you have had little experience with the legal system before.
By reaching out to an experienced divorce attorney, you can have your concerns addressed and will receive guidance through every step of the process.
Helping in a Contested Divorce
Divorce requires you and your spouse to examine numerous issues and try to agree upon resolutions. Some of these important issues include the following:
● Child custody and visitation
● Child support
● Division of property
● Division of debts
● Spousal support/Alimony
Many of these issues can be very personal, especially if they involve children. In addition, support and property matters can dictate your financial situation for the foreseeable future.
It is no surprise that many divorcing couples cannot agree on all of the issues. If even one issue is contested, it is essential to have an attorney on your side because you may be facing complicated negotiations and even court proceedings.
Assistance in an Uncontested Divorce
Even if you initially believe that you and your spouse agree on all of the relevant issues, it is always a wise idea to have a skilled lawyer review your agreements.
An attorney can identify whether any agreement is unfair or whether it seems like your spouse is not disclosing all of the necessary information for you to make a decision.
In addition, a court must approve any agreements you have reached before it will grant your divorce. An attorney can recognize any potential issues that may raise the attention of the court and may cause delays in your divorce process.
Finally, there is always the possibility that your spouse will change their mind and try to contest a previously uncontested issue and you always want someone handling your case in this situation.
