Going through a divorce? Dividing property among your husband, wife, or partner? If so, you are among the 80,000 Texas couples who decide to annul their marriages every year. Sometimes a divorce is smooth and painless, where both parties go their separate ways content and optimistic. In a perfect world, this would always be the case.
As a family law attorney in Mansfield, and also serving the Fort Worth-Dallas area, I understand the emotional turmoil surrounding divorce and how family law issues affect the entire family. Therefore, issues such as adoption, domestic violence, child custody and visitation, and many others need a compassionate, yet firm hand to deal with these matters accordingly.
What is Family Law?
Family law is a broad, complex field that can move from the mediation table to the courtroom in an instant. My experience as one of Mansfield’s foremost family law attorneys has shown me that every case is different, even if the case is simply a standard marriage annulment. As you traverse these difficult and muddy roads, I will give you the personal treatment you deserve with a compassionate ear. Concurrently, I will use the full extent of federal and Texas laws to protect your familial rights, whether they regard any of the following:
Your family is everything to you. And I want to make sure it stays that way. Contact the Law Office of Wendy L. Hart today at (817) 842-2336 to speak with Mansfield’s top family law attorney.
Know Your Rights
Family law issues can tear apart families and leave relationships unreconcilable. Often to avoid great emotional distress and to keep the family together, some people decide to forgo their rights over child support or will distribution, for example. Although this may seem like an honorable path to take, knowing and protecting your rights ensure the best possible outcome for you, your children (if applicable), and your assets.
Other times, knowing and protecting your rights can keep you safe, and there are standard, yet essential procedures to consider along every step of a family law proceeding. When filing the Petition for Divorce in Texas, for example, you must declare the appropriate grounds causing the divorce action. The appropriate lawful ground can influence many other matters of the divorce proceedings. Some of the grounds for divorce include:
- No fault
- Conviction of a Felony
- Living Apart
When a divorce is combined with other family matter issues, proper declaration is essential to keeping yourself and your children safe. For example, if your spouse has hit or attacked you or your children, then it is imperative to put this information forth in a lawful, responsible manner. It is your right to protect your children, and an aggressive and knowledgeable family law attorney can build a case to provide safety for you and your family.
