DIVORCE

Divorce Lawyers In Bryan, Texas

Divorce is typically a stressful, emotional and challenging process. Staying clear-headed can be difficult, which is all the more reason to hire a competent, tough and intelligent lawyer. At C.E. Borman & Associates, our lawyers help you understand what you should know about divorce. We explain your options, the laws that affect your case and provide honest legal advice so you can make informed decisions.

What Is A Contested And Uncontested Divorce?

“To contest” means to argue against. When you and your spouse disagree on terms for property division, child custody, visitation, child support or alimony, your divorce is contested. If you are able to mutually agree to all aspects of your divorce, the divorce is uncontested.

One way or another, all the issues involved with your divorce must be resolved. The most common ways of resolving issues are:

  • Settling between yourselves
  • Negotiating settlements through attorneys
  • Mediation
  • Trial (litigation)

Divorce Mediation In Texas

During mediation, an impartial third person, called a mediator, helps you find points of agreement so you can settle your conflicts. Mediators do not act as a judges, making decisions for you, but instead work with you to resolve conflict by helping you to arrive at your own decisions and compromises.

Many counties in Texas require couples to go through mediation before attending the final hearing for their divorce. Even in counties where mediation is not required, at times, judges order couples to mediation ─ especially when their disagreements seem resolvable. Even complex disagreements that may seem unresolvable are often resolved though the mediation process.

What Should You Expect When You Meet With An Attorney To Discuss Divorce?

We discuss your reasons for considering divorce and get a sense of what concerns you most. We want to know your goals for child custody, support and property division.

We explain the residency requirements for divorce in Texas, ensure you meet them and help you decide on divorce grounds.

A no-fault divorce means neither spouse places blame on the other for the breakdown of your marriage. “No fault” grounds include insupportability, which means that arguments or personality conflicts make repairing your marriage unlikely. Another no-fault ground is living apart without cohabitation for at least three years.

Fault grounds for divorce hold your spouse responsible for the cause of the breakup of the marriage and include one or more of these grounds:

  • Cruelty
  • Adultery
  • Felony conviction
  • Abandonment
  • Mental hospital confinement

The divorce process is full of legal terms that we can explain. We’ve only touched on a few basic elements here, but are ready to answer your questions. Arrange a confidential consultation and find out how we can help.
