Legal Divorce Assistance for Men in Houston, Texas
Don’t Negotiate Alone
Divorce is hard for everyone involved. No matter the cause for separation, both parties often feel hurt. Often, there can be expectations placed upon the man to provide post-marriage support. We will help you understand your rights and negotiate obligations that are fair and proportional to your situation. Don’t go through this alone. From child custody to property disputes, we will be with you every step of the way.
Navigate the Negotiation
Divorces are not generally straightforward. Without a prenuptial agreement, many arguments and disputes can go in circles for months. Our team will help you navigate through the process in your pursuit of a beneficial deal. For your convenience, we have compiled a list of predominant issues that men face in a separation negotiation.
Property and Possessions
A living space cannot be split. Property distribution is one of the most difficult discussions you will have during a divorce settlement debate. Texas is a community property state. This means that the belongings shared between the two spouses should be divided equally. You will need professional assistance to ensure that you receive a fair deal in the division of your assets.
Alimony and Support
As a man, it is very common for financial responsibility to be placed upon you. Sometimes this is a fair responsibility, but sometimes it is not. If your spouse is the principal provider, you may be entitled to receive assistive support. If you are required to pay alimony, we will work within state laws to ensure that the amount is reasonable.
The security of children in a divorce is crucial. It is inevitable that this situation will cause them unavoidable emotional strain. Getting reliable, diligent legal representation will ensure that the process is not dragged out longer than it needs to be. If your spouse has custody, we will fight for your visitation rights.
Discovery, as the name implies, is the term used to describe when a party collects evidence to support their side of a claim. It is one of the most important steps in negotiating a divorce settlement. It is also one of the most complex parts of the process. We will use our experience to assist you with information exchange and request petitions.
