Our divorce atttorneys in Fort Worth are skilled negotiators and fierce advocates on behalf of our clients. We work diligently to save our clients the trauma and animosity of a courtroom battle through successful alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation. However, when amicable resolutions cannot be reached, we will aggressively represent the interests of our clients and their children in court.
We provide divorce mediation service as well – divorce mediation is a process wherein you and your spouse meet with a neutral third party, the mediator, and with their help, you work through the issues you need to resolve so the two of you can end your marriage as amicably and cost effectively as possible. The mediator is there to help you reach an agreement with your spouse, even when communication breaks down.
We can also help with property division, which is a primary consideration at the end of any marriage: what was formerly the property of a couple must now be divided between two individuals going their separate ways.
There are two primary methods of property division:
- Equitable Distribution
- Community Property Law
Equitable distribution, as the name implies, splits the marital assets of a couple 50/50 or as close to equal as possible. This means that each spouse ought to receive half of the combined property, in terms of monetary value.
Community property law is roughly the same, except that it only deals with property that was acquired during the marriage, excluding property acquired independently before the marriage.
Separation agreements cover a wide range of topics and help to put into concrete wording the terms of a divorce.
