Denton Divorce Attorney
Divorce can be an overwhelming and stressful experience in a person’s life; you need to be able to focus on healing and moving on without worrying over the often complicated and challenging legal procedures. We at the Denton law office of Joseph F. Zellmer recognize the emotional, physical, and mental toll a divorce can take on you and we are here to help.
The legal terms of a divorce are contained in a divorce decree issued by a Texas court. Agreed divorces mean that both parties have amicably come to an agreement on all of the necessary issues. If both parties are able to do this successfully, the court needs only to approve the agreement. If, however, no arrangements can be negotiated, the court must decide the resolution for both parties. The most common issues revolve around child support, custody, visitation, alimony, and the division of property.
Denton Divorce Law
To petition for a divorce, at least one of the involved individuals must be a Texas resident for at least 6 months and a resident in the county in which the action is filed for 90 days. Once the divorce papers are filed, the petition for divorce and the court summons must be served to the other party unless the other party formally waives service.
The most common divorce cases center around the no-fault law. When filing for a no-fault divorce, each party is only required to demonstrate that the marriage is insupportable due to conflict or discord. In other words, they must testify that there is simply no hope the couple can work out their issues. If the parties cannot agree to the terms of the divorce, the court must make determinations for visitation, custody, property division and other concerns. Contact us to find out more.
