Preparing to File For Divorce
Taking the time to prepare for your divorce will help ensure a smoother process. Do you have a realistic idea of what you want your life to look like after your divorce? Consider the path that is most likely to help you achieve that goal. Our Carrollton divorce lawyers can help you make a plan and find creative solutions to reach your goals.
Before filing for divorce, it is important to consider:
- Value of marital property
- Division of marital property
- Where you will live
- How you will pay living expenses
- Child custody
- Child support
- Parenting schedules
When you are in the process of making the decision to divorce, it is important to contemplate these factors. There are other steps you can take before contacting a divorce lawyer. For example, you can gather supporting documents, which will help streamline the process. Based on the information you provide, our divorce attorneys can provide a realistic evaluation of what you can expect after the process is finalized.
The Divorce Process in Texas
Texas has a mandatory 60-day waiting period from the date you file for divorce before the process can be completed. This 60-day period is the minimum time-frame necessary for a divorce to finalize, but it could take much longer. The length of time required for a specific case depends on the complexity of the issues and the ability of a couple to reach an agreement.
Our Carrollton divorce attorneys take the time to understand your individual situation, needs, and what is most important to you. We will work with you to help you achieve the best possible outcome, whether through an agreement, settlement negotiations, or divorce litigation. It is important to remember that compromise is often needed to get the results you want.
