Skilled Divorce Attorney Assisting Spouses in League City
Getting divorced is rarely easy. Even when a divorce is relatively straightforward because the couple has few assets or a prenuptial agreement in place, it is still a life-changing, often emotional, process. Planning for divorce is more than determining lawyer costs and court schedules, it is planning for your new life as a single person with a portion of your marital assets. If you have children, it means planning for the next stage of your relationship with your spouse, one where you are co-parents sharing custody of your children.
Every divorce is unique. As you prepare for your divorce with an experienced divorce lawyer, he or she will examine the facts of your marriage and your needs after the divorce to determine appropriate, realistic goals for the divorce.
Issues Present in Divorce Cases
Our team works with our clients to help them build insight to all the issues present in their divorces and develop realistic expectations for them. One, a few, or all of the following may be part of your divorce:
- A child custody plan;
- A child custody order;
- Property division; and
- Spousal support.
Need legal help in Texas?
Be it family law, divorce, criminal defense, or personal injury — our Texas family law attorneys are here to help. We are results-driven, and we work tirelessly for our clients.
Our Houston family law and divorce attorneys have been providing compassionate and personalized legal services in Texas. Scott M. Brown is a certified family law specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
When tangential issues like domestic violence, a complex asset pool, conflict between you and your spouse, or an allegation that one partner is hiding assets are present in your case, we will help you work through the tangential issue toward an appropriate settlement. For example, you might need to value a small business and divide it under Texas’ community property guideline as part of your divorce. Our team can draw upon its professional network to connect you with an experienced business appraiser and ensure that all necessary considerations are discussed when determining an appropriate way to divide the business’ value.
In addition to guiding clients through divorce, our team also works with individuals seeking modifications for existing divorce orders. In some cases, a child custody or support order that covered the child’s needs when his or her parents divorced is no longer appropriate years later. In others, an individual paying child support or spousal maintenance cannot afford to make the same payments after losing his or her job or experiencing another type of financial hardship.
Working through your Divorce
When you are working through the divorce process, your lawyer’s job is to promote your rights and interests. If you are seeking a 50/50 custody order for your children, your lawyer will use available evidence like testimonies from your child’s teachers and information about your work schedule and your child’s daily routine to show the court your role in your child’s life. Do not begin the divorce process with assumptions about the court’s rulings based on your gender, occupation, age, or the issues present in your marriage.
