Boerne Divorce Attorney

Boerne Divorce Attorney

Lawyer for Division of Property and Child Custody Serving the San Antonio Area

Few people get married expecting to later get divorced, but it happens quite frequently. Not all marriages work out, for a variety of reasons, ranging from spouses growing apart to outright abuse. If you are facing the end of your marriage, you are very much not alone. You have likely heard the statistics stating that around half of all marriages end in divorce. Often, the best thing to do when you realize that your marriage is no longer manageable or workable is to divorce rather than stay in an unhappy home with a person you are no longer in love with.

Brandon Wong & Associates will adapt the way we represent you to suit your unique needs. The issues that are important to you will be our priority. In many cases, we are able to help divorcing spouses resolve the issues in their case through alternative dispute resolution. However, we are also experienced and skilled litigators who can aggressively fight for you in court should the need arise.

Uncontested Divorce Lawyer for Kendall County Residents

Mediation or attorney-facilitated negotiation is now generally the preferred method for resolving a divorce. An uncontested divorce can save time and money for both parties, in addition to often being far less stressful and risky than litigation. If you have children, using mediation can keep them away from any conflict. In some cases, Texas courts will order mediation to hopefully simplify the divorce process.

Dividing Marital Property and Reserving Separate Property

In Texas, marital property is divided evenly. When complex assets, like a retirement account or real estate holdings, need to be divided, you need attorneys who are experienced in this area of law. We have helped numerous spouses fairly divide their assets both in and out of court.

Often the first step is to determine what is marital property versus separate property. One of our goals is to preserve the separate property that belongs to you and not your spouse. If you have not worked or earned a lower income than your spouse during the marriage, you may also be entitled to spousal support.

Some assets may need a valuation. For example, if you own a business, it is important to know what it is worth. Under Texas law, both spouses are entitled to half of the marital assets, so we will undertake a complete assessment of what you and your spouse have acquired during your marriage.

Child Custody Lawyers for Divorcing Spouses in Boerne

If you and your spouse have children in common, determining a child custody arrangement is likely to be the most contentious aspect of your divorce. If an agreement between the parties cannot be reached - which is not uncommon, as few parents will voluntarily surrender time with their child - then the court will need to decide the case in a way that serves the child's best interests.

Rarely does one parent win exclusive custody. Often, one parent becomes the primary custodian, while the other enjoys visitation rights and is likely to pay child support. Mothers and fathers are treated equally under the law. Our firm provides zealous advocacy to LGBT+ parents, who may see additional complications in custody cases, especially if one has not established paternity.
