From celebrities to everyday working people, issues surrounding Family Law can have a big impact on people’s lives. A recent Time magazine article stated that while divorce rates in the United States have been declining, still approximately 17 of every 1000 individuals experience a divorce each year. Along with divorce comes a myriad of other issues. Child custody, child support, division of assets and the payment of debt obligations are just some of the issues which may arise in a typical divorce.
While some divorces are resolved amicably and equitably, this is not always the case. When disputes arise, the resulting stress and anxiety can take a heavy toll on all of the parties involved. For most people engaging in a custody dispute or a divorce, it is a new and sometimes very difficult experience. The disruption to lives that occurs during the dissolution of a relationship can take a heavy emotional toll on everyone involved.
In addition, Texas law surrounding the resolution of these issues can be quite complex. In these types of situations, it is both prudent and wise to retain an attorney to serve as a guide through the legal system. If the need should arise for a trial, it is vital to arrange for competent legal counsel to represent your interests in the courts. Failing to do so could result in court rulings that could have an adverse impact on your life for many years to come.
