Divorce Lawyer Questions
Should I tell my divorce lawyer everything?
First, you should establish an attorney-client relationship with your lawyer. This relationship affords you certain privileges wherein your communications are protected legally. Once that is complete, then it is prudent for you to share as much information with your attorney as is necessary for your lawyer zealously advocate on your behalf. In as much as an issue is relevant to your specific legal case, this info is typically shared with your attorney.
Do you offer divorce payment plans?
There are many divorce lawyers that do payment plans. Our family law firm would prefer to hear the specifics of your case before we are able to quote you a price. It often happens that a typical family law client in Houston believes their case will go a certain way, only to find out that they were a bit off in their estimation of how things would turn out. Even the most simple Texas divorce lawsuits will contain separate and community property issues, child support obligations, child visitation & custody agreements, and other issues that may not come up until the case starts to proceed. This is why it is best to have a quick consultation, over the phone or in person, with your lawyer before a price quote or payment plan, if any, is offered.
How do I find the best Houston divorce lawyer?
The short answer is look for recommendations. Recommendations from previous paying clients should be given the most credit. Most important, is to work with an attorney who genuinely cares about you and the outcome of your case. Some people find that hiring someone who really cares can be more beneficial in certain situations that hiring someone who appears to be more highly reviewed than their peers.
How fast can I get divorced in Texas?
Typically there is a court-mandated 60 day waiting period in Texas. So, the fastest you could get divorced would be on day 61 after filing your divorce papers.
Who pays for the divorce, me, or my spouse?
Typically, this is something that is negotiated for in the divorce process. We find that in many cases, one spouse will bear more of the cost of the divorce than the other. It would be best for you to give us a quick call so we can take a look at your situation and give a more clear answer on this one.
