Divorce, Child Custody, and Asset/Debt Division
Texas is one of nine states that follows community property guidelines in dividing property in a divorce. This means most property acquired during the marriage belongs to both spouses. Knowing community property laws is important, especially if a divorce is litigated in court. A judge will divide only what is community – or marital – property. Our Katy divorce attorneys can argue in court for what you believe is truly marital property and what is separate property. The distinction is critical.
In addition to asset division, our skilled lawyers can help resolve other divorce-related issues including the following:

Prenuptial Agreements and Other Family Law Issues
Prenuptial agreements are often misunderstood. Many view them as a declaration that you know the marriage will end in a divorce. Not so. These agreements are an effective way for a couple to establish an honest dialogue about their expectation in the marriage. Before you marry is not the only time you can create agreements that outline specific matters relevant to your marriage. Postnuptial agreements can restate goals when things change in the marriage, such as having children or buying property.
