Kirsten was heaven sent. I knew from our phone consultation that she was the lawyer for me. She was direct and honest about my outcome. Divorce isn’t easy and it usually gets messy but Kirsten not only helped me and walked me through every single step she was understanding and thoughtful. I can’t thank her enough for what she did for me.

Diana and Byron were very understanding, compassionate and wonderful to communicate with during this very stressful time for us. The receptionist was also very kind and caring. They never made you feel anything but welcome anytime we called or stopped by. Kept us very informed via email as well. They took care of everything. Can’t rate them high enough!!! 5 stars for sure!

Kirsten helped me with my divorce, she thought of absolutely everything. Kirsten was very up front about the cost involved and how the cost could go up. The whole process was quick.

We start by making sure that you have a full understanding of legal issues such as:
  • Residency — One spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months to file for divorce in Texas.
  • Grounds — Traditional fault grounds and no-fault options are both available to spouses seeking to dissolve their marriage. We’ll review your circumstances and help you decide which option suits your needs best.
  • Property division — As a community property state, Texas holds that the division of marital assets results in equal shares to each party. However, questions about valuation can become complicated, and there might be disagreement over whether an inheritance or gift should be considered as separate property. We help to draft and negotiate property settlement agreements that allocate assets and debts appropriately.
  • Alimony — Known as spousal maintenance in Texas, alimony payments are usually limited to situations where one ex-spouse cannot meet their financial needs due to a disability or a marriage lasting more than 10 years where that spouse did not work outside the home. Each case is unique, and whether you are a potential payer or recipient, our lawyers will let you know what you can expect.
  • Modifications — Life changes such as a new job or home can create problems under an existing dissolution order. Our firm handles divorce modifications if adjustments to custody, child support or alimony are warranted.
  • Child custody — Disputes over child custody are best resolved quickly so that everyone can concentrate on the physical, educational and emotional needs of young people. By taking a personalized approach to each case, we maximize the likelihood of a successful outcome.
