If you and your spouse have decided to end your marriage and by this, we mean you are ready to start the divorce process, the first thing you are going to want to do is hire a Brownsville, TX divorce lawyer. And here’s why.
- Divorce attorneys will file the initial paperwork (i.e. divorce petition) with the court for you so that you don’t have to go digging around for it and have to do it on your own.
It’s safe to say that a majority of people in the U.S. right now are experiencing some type of hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And by piling on a divorce onto the hardship you are already facing, you may be under a significant amount of stress. Although divorces tend to be some of the more difficult events people find themselves having to go through, you can make things easier on yourself by retaining a Brownsville, TX divorce attorney.
- If there are any active disputes between you and your spouse, your lawyer can help you work through them so that the divorce isn’t stalled for a period longer than it should be.
One of the reasons why divorce cases take so long to settle is because one or both parties refuse to agree on one or more issues involved in the divorce. The issue might be related to child custody, child support, or even the division of marital property. Rather than prolong the divorce proceedings or force the court to decide on these issues for you, it’s best to let your divorce attorney work with your spouse and/or their lawyer to get the issues resolved.
- If you’re concerned about how child custody will be determined or if alimony will be awarded, you need a lawyer working on your side fighting for a favorable outcome.
If your spouse has hinted to you that he/she doesn’t want to pay you alimony even though you may be entitled to receive it or they plan on fighting you for certain property that rightfully belongs to you, you need a lawyer in your corner working to procure an outcome that is favorable to you.
