Protecting Your Financial Interests In Divorce

One household becomes two in a divorce, and both parties often face significant financial challenges after the final decree. Some of the key financial concerns of those facing divorce in Texas include:

  • Division of property: The division of marital property is one of the key aspects of divorce. You want to make sure you are obtaining your fair share of community property, that is, any wealth or assets acquired during the course of the marriage.
  • Marital debt: Debt is also divided in a divorce and you don't want to take on more than your fair share. Debt problems often lead to marital discord, but they can also result from the financial turmoil of divorce.
  • Spousal support: In many divorces, especially those ending long-term marriages, it is appropriate for one spouse to pay maintenance (alimony) to the other. The amount of spousal support paid depends on a number of factors, including the length of the marriage, the paying spouse's ability to provide support, and the receiving spouse's age, health and earning ability.

While these issues can cause stress and anxiety, having an experienced divorce attorney on your side can alleviate your concerns. As a divorce lawyer with more than a decade of experience, I can protect your rights in property division, spousal support, prenuptial agreements, and other key areas of divorce and family law.

Remember, this is the time to protect your own financial interests. The decisions you make today will likely affect you for years, if not the rest of your life. Hiring the right lawyer is one of the best decisions you can make.
