Divorce In Texas

I understand that divorce can be a truly emotional experience. Aside from your marriage coming to an end, the fear of losing your property, your house and your medical insurance can be devastating. If you have children, custody disputes can be extremely tough on parents and children alike. With the help of an experienced attorney, however, you can make it through divorce.

People are understandably apprehensive about the divorce process. They have many questions and even some fears about what they will go through. I am family law attorney Sharon Merrick. I offer a free divorce consultation to listen to all of your concerns, answer your questions, and provide you with the information you need to make an educated decision about your future.

How Will Your Property Be Divided?

In Texas, property and assets that were acquired during the marriage, with some limited exceptions, are referred to as community property. As part of the divorce, this property will be divided between the spouses. This does not mean that the property will be divided equally, but rather that it will be divided fairly. As your lawyer, I will work with you to determine a fair property division settlement.

Finding Workable Child Custody Solutions

When it comes to child custody, many people think it's win or lose. However, unless there are strong reasons not to, both parents will have possession of children after divorce. Texas courts will want to make your custody arrangement as easy as possible on your children, and they may order divorce mediation to help you arrive at an agreement. I can represent you in this forum as well as in traditional negotiation and litigation, if necessary.
