Taking the First Steps With an Eye Toward the Future

At the beginning of the divorce process in Texas, the court will generally issue temporary orders resolving issues such as who will control what property, who will have child custody and whether either spouse has to pay support during the divorce.

Temporary orders should not be treated as a minor issue. Structures that are put in place during the initial stages of the divorce process often have a significant impact on the final outcome of the divorce.

We are experienced at identifying the issues early in the process so we can take the right steps at the temporary order stage. We are also experienced at pursuing a variety of different forms of protective orders for spouses and children where there has been a history of family violence.

After temporary orders are issued, the divorce process can go in several different directions depending on the specific circumstances of each case. Issues such as property division, child custody, child support and spousal support (alimony) can be resolved through litigation or through structured negotiations such as mediation.
