Dickinson Divorce Lawyer

Divorce Planning

If you have decided to divorce, creating an overall divorce plan can facilitate the process and help you achieve an equitable settlement. A Dickinson divorce attorney from our office can answer all of your divorce questions and help you develop an effective divorce strategy. This includes cases involving a contested divorce, uncontested divorce, high net worth divorce, collaborative divorce and military divorce. Planning your divorce will give you greater control over the divorce process, and help ensure your future security. Our firm will review your finances, discuss your needs and concerns in detail, and work out the best way to accomplish your divorce goals. We can also provide mediation assistance to help you create agreements for child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support/alimony, property division, asset division or debt division, and can assist you with issues regarding paternity, grandparents' rights, fathers' rights and mothers' rights.

Even when a couple agrees to a divorce, there can be disputes regarding assets, alimony and other important matters. We will do everything possible to resolve any differences that arise out-of-court. If you are involved in a contest divorce, we will provide dedicated representation and ensure your rights and interests are safeguarded. We will keep your children's needs a priority and work hard to achieve a fair settlement.

Divorce Representation in Dickinson

Some divorce cases are extremely combative and can lead to charges of domestic violence, spousal abuse and child abuse, as well as orders of protection. We will make sure these accusations are properly addressed, and take any legal actions that are necessary. Following a divorce, we can provide advice and advocacy regarding geographic restrictions (relocation), modification of child support, modification of child custody, modification of spousal support, enforcement of court orders, enforcement of settlement agreements and parental alienation. We can also help you with adoption.

We have 70 years' combined experience representing divorce clients, and our founding attorney has been recognized by H magazine as a top family lawyer and by Texas Monthly as a Texas legal rising star. He also served as a U.S. Army officer for 20 years and has experience helping military personnel resolve family law issues.
