Many things fly through someone’s head when they’re considering a divorce. What happens to the kids? Who gets the car? Who gets the house? It’s enough to make someone’s head spin. We at Davis, Ermis, and Roberts, P.C., want to make the process as easy as possible for you. We’ve handled some of the most easiest divorces as well as some of the most complex. Our expertise is in out-preparing the other side.
In Texas, there is no legal separation. This means your legal status as a married couple does not change even if you move away from each other. If you’re even considering divorcing your spouse, we strongly recommend speaking with an attorney to learn how to protect yourself and your assets as much as possible.
For many couples, what happens to their children is the most important part of the divorce. Texas assumes that it’s in the best interest of the children for both parents to play a major role in the child’s upbringing. We focus on delivering satisfactory results when it comes to our client’s rights to and possession of their children. It’s important to get the correct child support amount and the right possession/visitation schedule because this can be very difficult to change in the future.
Another important aspect of the divorce proceeding is the property and debt division. Texas is a community property state, which means that most of the things either spouse earns during the marriage (income, retirement, stocks) is jointly owned. This can be frustrating for certain couples where one spouse was the breadwinner for most if not all of the marriage. With this in mind, we fight for what our clients deserve and more. Again, once the divorce is done there’s little to no chance of redoing the property division; so it’s best to get it done right the first time.
