Understanding The Divorce Process In Texas
At Griffin and Cain Attorneys at Law, we can help you navigate the divorce process.
There are many ways to characterize the way a divorce may proceed, but we generally place divorces in one of the three following categories:
- Uncontested divorce
- Mediated divorce
- Traditional divorce
We handle all types of divorce, including property issues and child custody issues.
If you and your spouse agree to all the terms in dividing your marital estate and for the care of your children the process is relatively straightforward. A divorce is uncontested only if there are no disagreements on how to split the marital assets, who will have primary custody of the children, the terms of visitation, the amount of child support or anything else. When a divorce can be done on these terms we offer a set fee and can quite often complete the divorce process in as little as two months from filing. Our attorneys frequently handle divorces of this type and will explain how they work in a free initial consultation. We keep appointment times available in our Conroe offices and serve the people in many surrounding areas.
Sometimes only a few disagreements stand in the way of finalizing a divorce. Our Divorce Lawyers know that sometimes settling a case is simply a matter of finding a forum for discussion. Mediation is becoming more and more popular in family law settings, and our divorce lawyers are experienced in handling the mediation process. More often than not the best course for our clients is mediation rather than a divorce trial. Our divorce lawyers know what it takes when negotiating in these settings and will steer you in the right direction.
When the terms of divorce cannot be agreed upon by the parties or in settlement negotiations, the case must go to court. Our divorce lawyers will prepare you for the courtroom and counsel you on the many choices that must be made in this process. Then we will fight for everything you deserve.
