What is the difference between fault and no-fault divorce?
A fault divorce is a divorce that can be granted for several specified reasons. Among the more common grounds for a fault divorce include the following:
- Living apart for more than three years
- Felony conviction
- Mental cruelty
There are other grounds for requesting a fault divorce. Therefore, you need an experienced attorney on your side that knows the various factors. At Alexander & Associates, we have seen all the grounds for a fault divorce. Do not wait to call us today at (972) 420-6560 so we can help you through the proceedings.
A no-fault divorce is the most common type of divorce in Texas. Basically, with this type of divorce, there is no requirement to show any type of conflict or fault in the marriage. A court may grant a no-fault divorce if the marriage simply is not working and if the marriage cannot be fixed.
No-fault divorces can still be extremely complicated to go through in a court of law. You do not have to go through these difficult legal proceedings alone. Alexander & Associates is here to help in your time of need. We are deeply experienced when it comes to all matters of family law. Please contact us today, and we will help you with your divorce, whether it is a fault or a no-fault divorce.
How will a court divide property in divorce proceedings?
In Texas, there is a type of property called community property. Community property is property that was acquired by a married couple during the marriage. A divorce court can divide community property in a way that it believes is “just and right” with due regard for the rights of each party and any children of the marriage. This does not mean that the division of community property is necessarily a 50/50 split.
When a court decides to divide community property unequally, they will consider a wide variety of factors. At Alexander & Associates, we have seen unequal divisions of community property because of some of the following considerations:
- Children of the marriage
- Income production
- Wrongdoing of a party in bringing about the divorce
- Length of the marriage
- Nature of the property to be divided
In addition to these considerations, at Alexander & Associates, we have seen other factors considered that lead to an unequal division. If you want to make sure that you get the keep the property you deserve, call the Denton divorce lawyers today at (972) 420-6560.
What are the basics of child support?
An unmarried parent or a dependent spouse can make a claim for child support based on a percentage of the other parent’s net monthly resources. This amount involves a complicated calculation and maximum amount that requires experience to truly understand. This is one of the many reasons that securing a knowledgeable family attorney will make your life much easier.
Generally speaking, one parent’s obligation to pay child support continues until the child becomes 18 or graduates from high school. The obligation can also end if the child becomes emancipated. However, courts may order that the child support arrangement continues past the age of 18 years for a wide variety of reasons.
The bottom line is that just like all matters involved in divorce proceedings, child support agreements can be extremely complicated. At Alexander & Associates, our attorneys have handled countless child support arrangements and disputes. To ensure that you get the best possible outcome in your divorce or your child support dispute, please call our skilled and experienced attorneys today at (972) 420-6560. Our Denton lawyers will give your case the individualized care and concern that you deserve. We understand that divorce can be extremely stressful and that this stress is heightened when your children are involved.
