Going through a divorce is an extremely stressful life event. This is true even if both parties agree that parting is in their best interest. The wrenching apart of the marriage is not easy. Important decisions that have lifelong implications have to be made at a time when emotions are running high. The process can be made easier with the assistance of a compassionate and experienced family law attorney who can guide you through the decision-making process and the sometimes frustrating family law court experience.
Call Joseph R. Soto & Associates, P.C.
At the law office of Joseph R. Soto & Associates, P.C., we have the experience and knowledge you need for your divorce representation in Texas. Our office is located in Houston and we serve Montgomery, Fort Bend and R. Harris Counties. Some of the decision you need to make include, but are not limited to:
- Grounds for divorce: Texas allows a petition for divorce to be filed without requiring any allegation of fault. There are certain grounds that can be alleged blaming one party for the break-down of the marriage. This may have some bearing on the decisions the court later makes in dividing the marital property.
- Division of assets and liabilities: Texas is an equitable distribution state, which means marital property is divided on the basis of what is fair. This does not necessarily mean equal.
- Child custody and visitation: The court encourages divorcing parents to put together their own parenting plan. If this is not possible, the court will take evidence from both parents and make its decisions based on what the court determines is in the best interest of the children.
- Child support: Both parents are charged with providing financially for their children. The court considers the income and circumstances of each party and follows guidelines for issuing a child support order. Generally, the noncustodial parent is ordered to pay a monthly sum to the custodial parent.
- Spousal support: Many factors influence a court’s decision in whether or not to order spousal support for either party.
