Divorces are complicated and contentious. There are also more than enough feelings to go around. If you or your spouse are filing for divorce, it’s imperative that you find a good divorce lawyer. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
A divorce is a legal proceeding that dissolves a marriage. More than simply ending a marriage, though, divorces also include child custody, child support, and a division of property and assets.
One of the reasons divorces are so complicated is because children are involved. When filing for a divorce, if an agreement cannot be reached by the two parties, the court will have to decide how to award custody of the children.
This will result in either the election of a primary caregiver and a noncustodial parent or joint custody. Both will affect how often you see your children and how their day-to-day lives will be until they turn 18 years old and become legal adults.
A good family lawyer will help ensure that there’s an equitable division of custody. Julie Boren will work for you and your children. Contact us today for your consultation.
As part of a child custody order, the non-primary caregiver will often be ordered to pay court-ordered child support. This support includes money to be used to pay for the expenses raising a child incurs but can also include health, dental, and vision insurance for the child as well.
Child support is often another contentious aspect of divorces. Child support is normally dictated as a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s income. Medical expenses and other support in addition to that may also be required.
A good divorce lawyer will ensure that your child support agreement is equitable. Julie Boren has helped East Texas parents with their child support agreements. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
All of the property the couple acquired during their marriage will also have to be separated and divided as equitably as possible. This includes any homes, cars, investments, and savings accounts. Of these, houses are the most difficult to divide.
Unless an agreement is reached during the early stages of the divorce, a court will likely have to judge to whom to award the property. In this stage, a lawyer will enter litigation and plead each person’s case. Ultimately, the judge will decide how to divide the property.
A divorce lawyer is especially important when considering the division of assets. Julie Boren in Rusk TX has helped ensure her clients are awarded what they need and deserve. Contact us today for your consultation.
A lot of websites are offering cheap, do-it-yourself divorces. These sites will walk you through the process of drafting a divorce agreement and filing it with your local court. For some people, this is a valid option. If you and your former spouse agree on everything, own no mutual property, and have no joint children, this may work for you.
If not, it’s best to have a lawyer that will negotiate with your former spouse’s counsel to ensure the divorce is equitable and fair.
