Filing for Divorce in Houston?
An experienced divorce lawyer in Houston can help to ensure that you receive everything you are entitled to during a divorce proceeding. Texas is a community property state, so all acquired property and income accumulated by either spouse during the span of the marriage are considered to be “community property” and belong jointly to the parties, absent an agreement to the contrary, or if obtained by inheritance as a gift. As such, the community property is subject to a “just and right equitable division” between you and your spouse in the event of a divorce. This division of property may or may not be evenly distributed by the court or by a mutual agreement between both parties. If a marriage has complicated issues to settle such as a division of assets or debts, child support, child custody matters or spousal support (alimony), an attorney may prove to be invaluable in the process of coming to an agreement.

How can a Houston Divorce Attorney Help You?
Divorce is likely a stressful time for both parties.

Although the attorney will need to gather information from both parties, he or she can handle nearly every matter, allowing you time to care for you and your family.
Serving Houston TX
There are two main reasons that people make mistakes when filing for divorce on their own: the stress of the divorce makes it difficult to think clearly, and the legal system is complicated. If a party simply forgets to address an issue such as credit card or medical debt or if he or she overestimates or underestimates the value of an asset, he or she may inadvertently make a serious error in a divorce proceeding. Such mistakes can prove to be costly or may require additional legal proceedings to correct. A divorce lawyer in Houston can provide both parties with the reassurance that the case is being properly handled and avoid expensive inaccuracies.
A court will review any divorce documents presented before them, but the court may not fully understand what the individual is attempting to accomplish with each point if he or she attempts to file for divorce without legal counsel. Doing so may result in a divorce decree that states something other than what the individual intended. On the other hand, those who choose to work with a divorce lawyer in Houston can be certain that the legal documents presented to the court will accurately state the agreements of the spouses and that the divorce decree will be enforceable.
A person may use court-provided documents or forms found on the Internet to begin the legal proceeding, but he or she may still run into difficulty with providing adequate information and completing the proper forms for family law issues. It’s always best to use a Houston TX divorce lawyer. Those who go to court without legal representation may find mistakes or errors that could potentially result in a delay in the court’s ruling, thus pushing back the finalization date of the divorce. The court and their staff will not provide guidance on how to fill out the forms or what information to supply. Working with an attorney can increase the likelihood of the finalization of the divorce in a timely matter without any added interruptions or postponements.
