Texas Divorce Rights
The first step to take before filing for a divorce is to understand the divorce laws of Texas. Such laws cover topics
like child custody, types of divorce and other topics. There are similar d
ivorce laws in other states. However, visitation laws and child custody laws are different in Texas. Below is an overview of Texas Divorce Laws.
Legal Separation: This type of separation is chosen when divorce is not involved due to religion or other factors, instead you and your spouse separate. This is also what comes before a divorce for most couples. Separation agreements are arranged
stating who lives where, how funds are managed, how bills are paid and if their will be any alimony involved.
When agreements cannot be made between you and your partner such as property division, child custody, alimony etc., then your divorce is considered contested. Contested divorce will require mediation or family court. Moravcik Law Office is ready to help and answer all your questions. We are prepared to take your case to court if necessary for the resolution your looking for.
Uncontested Divorce: If you and your partner want to divorce and can agree on all levels of issues such as child custody, property division, etc., then your divorce is uncontested. Many choose this route for financial reasons, but it is wise to work with an attorney so you knows all your rights before its to late.
Child Custody, Visitation and Support in Texas:
Custody is also referred to as Conservatorship, for persons living in Texas. It may be sole or joint, possessory or managing. Another name for visitation is Possession. Judges follow a standard order for possession but having an strong attorney on your side will help in this decision. If the child is younger than 3 years or the parents of the child live at least 100 miles apart, the order of possession can be slightly modified as well.
Texas determines the amount of support owed by reviewing financial records and using a formula to determine how much support you will be required to pay or receive.
