Defending Your Needs Through Divorce
The outcome of a divorce can define how you live for years to come. The divorce agreement you sign could affect your living situation, family dynamic and financial situation. With so much on the line, the last thing you should do is make the mistake of representing yourself. Instead, allow the guidance of a skilled family law attorney to protect your best interests through the process.
At Quintana and Barajas, we have been representing clients throughout Texas throughout all stages of their divorces for more than 10 years. We know how Texas laws impact families, and we are prepared to develop a personalized strategy to help you pursue the outcome you deserve.
Understanding A Divorce In Our State
One of the primary differences in a Texas divorce is how assets will divide in court. Texas is a “community property” state, which means judges will divide community assets (noninheritance assets acquired during the marriage) in a 50/50 split. In some cases, a judge may divide assets in a 55/45 or even a 60/40 split if one spouse was behaving poorly or there were grounds for fault, like adultery or cruelty.
Why You Always Need An Attorney
Instead of leaving a divorce resolution to a judge, some couples may decide to resolve their divorce on their own through negotiation. Even when couples agree to collaborate in their divorce, they need to be sure they are defending their needs with legal representation. As your legal advocates, we can help you pursue your family law goals, focus on the important matters and keep the process civil from beginning to end.
If you decide to take your case to court, we can help complete the necessary paperwork on time, gather evidence and information to bolster your case. As your legal allies, we are committed to pursuing the outcome you deserve in your divorce.
