Divorce in Texas: When to Contact a Family Law Attorney Part 2

Today’s blog post will be the second and final post in a series of articles written by the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC, on the topic of the appropriate time to hire a Texas family law attorney for your divorce case. There is no one-size-fits-all rule for anything in the law, but broadly speaking, I believe the situations and circumstances we will cover in these two blog posts will protect you and your family pretty well.

With that said, let’s jump into our discussion today about the types of divorces and how an attorney will assist you in handling each.

Know Your Family, and You Will Know What Type of Divorce You Face.

In Texas, your divorce type depends on challenges in child custody and property division. Everyone starts with filing and a 60-day wait, but issue complexity dictates the case’s depth.

If you and your spouse agree on major divorce aspects, a lawyer mainly refines the agreement for court. But disagreements on child custody, business division, or spousal maintenance mean a longer, tougher process. This requires strong legal representation for negotiation and court presentation.

Types of Divorces

Let’s go over the main types of divorces. Your divorce will likely fall into one of these categories.

Straightforward divorces

Many people fear their divorce will be like World War Three. They think nobody in the family is happy, and both spouses want a fight. But when we analyze the issues, they’re often less severe and solvable through compromise.

Parents generally want similar things for their child, despite different methods. If the goal is to raise happy, healthy children, both spouses usually agree.

Most people don’t own a lot of property. Apart from a house, a few vehicles, and a retirement account, property division is usually straightforward. Worrying about who gets the silverware is a minor issue in a divorce.

Divorces with conflict and issues to be resolved

In contentious divorces, a family law attorney is vital, serving as a counselor, negotiator, and courtroom advocate. They help navigate emotional and legal complexities and bridge communication gaps when spouses can’t talk.

Mediation is preferred in such cases, offering a better negotiation setting than court. Judges, constrained by time and rules, may miss family nuances. Mediation, led by a skilled attorney, targets key issues, seeking friendly settlements. This saves time, money, and stress, making it a great court alternative.
