A divorce can be a painful experience, but sometimes ending a marriage is unavoidable. At The Pinkerton Law Firm, we understand the complex issues arising from a divorce can be time-consuming, exasperating and traumatic for our clients and their children.
Texas law also provides a number of fault-based grounds, which include:
- cruel treatment
- felony conviction
- abandonment for at least one year
- confinement in a mental institution for at least three years
The Pinkerton Law Firm represents men and women in both uncontested and contested divorce cases, while recognizing that any divorce scenario can be extremely sensitive and difficult for our clients. Our first priority is to answer your questions, carefully explain the law to you as it relates to your unique situation, and to formulate a plan of action to best advance your interests and protect your rights.
Community Property issue In Divorce
According to Texas Law, It is presumed that all property acquired by the parties during the marriage is community property. However, if a party can prove that certain property is his or her separate property, then that property will be set aside to him or her.
Modifying and Enforcing Divorce & Custody Agreements
All too often, people experience much of the same behavior from their ex-spouse post-divorce as they experienced during the marriage. Even years after a marriage has ended, a former spouse may not be cooperating or may be trying to manipulate the terms of the agreement. Also, other life events may occur that affect the terms of a divorce or custody agreement. For example, one parent may relocate making the current visitation agreement impossible. When circumstances change (or need to change), we help clients seek post-judgment modifications to address their needs. Our family lawyers also help clients enforce court orders for custody and support.
