Frequently Asked Questions:
How do you divide property in a divorce?
The first step towards dividing assets in divorce in Texas is understanding the difference between community property and separate property. We help you gather information to identify your marital property, and then we to devise the best strategy to protect your assets. We also address special property issues, like dividing the house, retirement accounts, high net worth assets, businesses, student loans, and IRS tax debts.
How do we minimize the impact of divorce on our kids?
Divorce can be difficult for children. As a mother herself, Alexandra Geczi understands the heartache a parent feels when their child is suffering and the desire to shield your child from pain. Children in the middle of divorce often share the same feelings and emotions as you but they may respond in different ways. We encourage therapy and counseling before, during, or after divorce, depending on your child’s needs. We also work with you to understand your unique relationship dynamics and come up with a co-parenting strategy and parenting plan that works for you and your family. We can help flesh out creative visitation schedules, custody agreements, and child support arrangements.
How do you file for divorce?
The Texas divorce process can be simplified into the following steps: (1) file the paperwork, (2) notify your spouse, (3) gather and exchange information, (4) negotiate and/or mediate, (5) go to trial if you can’t settle by agreement, (6) draft the final order for the judge to sign. Every case is different, so these steps may vary for your particular situation. Also, it’s not uncommon for women to file for divorce. In fact, women initiate most divorces. If you’re ready to file for divorce, contact our office for guidance and resources.
Is legal separation in Texas better than divorce?
In Texas, you are either married or you’re not. There is no “legal separation”, even after you file for divorce. However, you and your spouse can create contractual agreements such as Postmarital Agreements (postnups) and Separation Agreements to govern how things will be divided while still married or in the event of divorce. Our skilled divorce lawyers can help you negotiate and draft a customized agreement to fit your needs. Alternatively, we are one of the only divorce law firms who offers Divorce Planning services. If you are thinking about divorce but want to plan things out, this may be a great option.
How do we negotiate and calculate a house buyout in a divorce?
The house is often one of the biggest assets in a marital estate. The house can carry not just financial value but also emotional value and a desire to maintain stability for the kids. In a divorce, the marital home is either kept by one party or sold. Either way, the divorcing couple will need to calculate the value of the house and figure out how to divide it. If you are considering keeping the house in a divorce, you will need to consider several factors such as whether you can afford it and if refinancing is needed. Another consideration is who will live in the house while the divorce is pending or until the house is sold and who will pay the bills. An experienced divorce lawyer can help you work through these questions and negotiate a settlement that works best for you.
How does split custody work in Texas?
Many of our clients find that their husbands suddenly become more involved fathers when divorce comes into play. Their husbands push hard for split custody or 50/50 visitation schedules, often motivated by the misconception that they won’t have to pay child support that way. However, the reality is that 50/50 custody usually only works when parents are able to co-parent well together and live close to each other. If you are feeling pressured into split custody or 50/50 visitation arrangement, please contact us to discuss your options.
