Dallas Divorce Lawyer

We’re here to Fight for What You Need

No one can claim to know what you’re going through during a divorce. Every person experiences this differently, and the circumstances vary from case to care. We can, however, empathize with your situation, and offer you dedicated legal counsel that will fight for what you really want. During this emotional time, it can be difficult to focus on the future. As hard as divorce is, when it’s over you have a chance to start the next phase of your life. It’s our job to make sure you have everything you need to make a fresh start.

Call (214) 972-3025 to schedule a consultation with our experienced Dallas divorce attorney.

Filing for Divorce in Texas

You must have been a resident in Texas for at least 6 months before filing for divorce. Once you have filed a Petition for Divorce with the District Court, a judge will typically wait 60 days before making a final divorce decree. This may change if the case involves extenuating circumstances such as domestic violence.

You do not need to establish fault in Texas to get a divorce (a “no fault” divorce). If you do have grounds for a fault divorce, however, you may be entitled to more from your shared assets as compensation for your spouse’s mistreatment.

Some grounds for fault divorce include:

  • Domestic abuse
  • Adultery
  • Verbal abuse and cruelty
  • One spouse has been convicted of a felony
  • Your spouse abandoned you for a year
  • You have lived apart for at least 3 years
  • Your spouse has been confined to a mental institution for at least 3 years

There are also circumstances that would lead to the annulment of your marriage rather than a divorce. Annulments are generally simpler than divorces and essentially makes it so that the marriage never existed in the first place, from a legal standpoint. Marrying while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, marrying someone who did not inform you they were previously married, and marriages that have only been in effect for less than 72 hours are just a few qualifiers for an annulment.

Protect What's Important to You

Once you have come to terms that a divorce is happening, it’s time to start thinking about your future. Dividing property and assets is a complicated process, and you will want a knowledgeable attorney helping you figure out a fair arrangement. If you have children, determining child custody will be another major issue.

Whether you decide to work out the terms of your divorce amicably in an uncontested divorce, or will need to go to court for a contested divorce, our capable divorce attorney in Dallas can provide you with the compassionate and dedicated representation you deserve.
