It’s important that the key issues that need to be settled through your divorce are carefully examined and that you have an experienced advocate looking out for your best interest. Financial matters and how the shared responsibility of raising any minor children involved will be handled are typically the issues that can create the most conflict between you and your spouse.



If either party (or their attorney) is not willing to work towards settlement, then aggressive and competent advocacy in a contested case is needed. Our experienced divorce attorneys exhaust all reasonable efforts to settle cases to avoid the time, expense, and stress of a contested trial. However, in the event a settlement is not possible, our attorneys provide well prepared and aggressive court room and litigation skills.


When two spouses decide to get divorced, The Texas Family Law Court encourages them to work together to make a plan to address key issues like child custody and asset division. While it can seem counter intuitive that you’re being asked to get along with the person you are divorcing, it really is in your best interest. Relying on the court to settle your disputes is expensive, time-consuming and does not always provide the favorable results divorcing spouses may have been hoping for. While it’s important that your rights are protected and you pursue what is fair, a little agreement can make the process go much more smoothly for everyone involved.


Aside from child custody, financial matters are typically the most contested issues. Arrangements need to be made for assets and their debts; for example, who will keep the house and cars, and who will make the monthly payments. If one spouse provided for the family financially while the other stayed home and took care of the kids, the spouse with an income will likely make spousal support or alimony payments to the other spouse. Determining exactly how much alimony will be paid relies on several different variables like level of education, age of children and work history.
