Corsicana Divorce Lawyers
Divorce Process in Texas
Corsicana family courts require couples who are seeking a divorce to complete
mediation first. Luckily, attorney Sarah Keathley is a certified mediator
who can help our clients reach agreements on as many issues as possible.
By doing so, you and your spouse can have more control over the framework
of your post-divorce lives rather than leave these critical decisions
to a family court judge.
If agreements cannot be reached through negotiations our Corsicana divorce lawyers are always prepared to go to court and aggressively advocate on your behalf to protect your rights, Keathley & Keathley Law Firm can assist clients with matters such as:
- child custody
- child support
- property division
Many clients who seek our assistance are in “crisis mode” when we first meet. They are looking for both immediate and long-term relief from their marital troubles, which is where our Corsicana divorce lawyers step in. We begin each divorce case by fully reviewing an individual’s situation and clarifying key objectives regarding their divorce. For example, a parent of young children may be focused on gaining custody, while someone whose children are grown may be concerned about how their significant marital assets will be divided.
Is texas a community property state?
Yes, Texas is a community property state. This means any property or assets gained during the marriage is owned by both spouses equally and will be split evenly if the couple divorces.
Some property gained during the marriage will remain the sole property of one spouse. These exceptions include inheritances or gifts received by one spouse and compensation from personal injury settlements. In addition, any property or assets owned and managed by one spouse will remain the sole property of that spouse.
Is Texas a no Fault Divorce State?
Yes. When filing for a divorce in Texas, you can choose between a no fault or a fault-based divorce. If an individual files for a no fault divorce, they will not have to prove that their partner is responsible for the end of the marriage.
