Types of Divorce in Montgomery County

There are two types of divorce—uncontested and contested. An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties agree on all major issues, such as property division, child custody, and alimony. This type of divorce can reduce stress, costs, and time by avoiding drawn-out court proceedings. The Stout Law Firm, PLLC can assist with preparing and filing the necessary documents to ensure the process runs smoothly while protecting your interests.

The second type of divorce is a contested divorce. In a contested divorce, the spouses cannot agree on one or more key issues, necessitating negotiation and, sometimes, court intervention. Due to their complexity and duration, these cases can be emotionally and financially taxing. The Stout Law Firm, PLLC has the experience to handle contested divorce cases skillfully and precision, helping clients protect their rights and reach the best possible resolution.

Common Divorce Issues Handled by The Stout Law Firm

When you and your ex cannot reach an agreement on one or more of the typical divorce issues, you will need to work toward settlement or risk allowing a family law judge to decide. Here are some of the issues our divorce lawyers in Montgomery County can help with. 

Child Custody

Child custody disputes are often one of the most emotionally challenging aspects of a divorce. The firm prioritizes the child’s best interests, using negotiation or, if necessary, litigation to help parents achieve fair custody and visitation arrangements. By advocating for parenting plans that maintain stability for children, the firm aims to minimize the impact of divorce on the family.

Property Division

Texas is a community property state, meaning marital assets and debts are divided fairly between spouses. However, determining what constitutes “fair” can be complicated. The Stout Law Firm, PLLC analyzes each client’s unique financial situation to pursue a property division agreement that secures their future financial well-being.

Alimony/Spousal Support

When determining spousal support, courts consider various factors, such as the duration of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and any history of domestic abuse. The Stout Law Firm, PLLC helps clients understand the factors that may influence support decisions, ensuring they receive or provide a fair amount.

Parenting Plans

Sometimes, couples can agree on custody but need assistance working out a parenting plan. A well-crafted parenting plan can reduce conflict between parents and provide children with the consistency they need. The Stout Law Firm, PLLC works closely with clients to develop plans tailored to their children’s unique needs, addressing school schedules, holidays, and transportation arrangements.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Lawyers Serving Montgomery County

Divorce cases of high-profile celebrities are constantly in the headlines but it is a mistake to assume that only the rich and famous can benefit from marital property agreements. Couples from all backgrounds should consider whether a prenuptial agreement may benefit them in the period leading up to their wedding day.

Even if they have been married for years, spouses who have certain interests to protect may also want to look at their options for postnuptial agreements, also known as a partition and exchange agreement.

Fortunately, Texas law allows you to take control of your marital property rights which allows you to direct how your property is divided between you and your spouse in the event of divorce or death. While addressing these issues may seem awkward with your fiancé and/or betrothed, in many instances, these crucial conversations can help protect both you and your loved one avoid unnecessary stress in the future.

However, it is important to note that these statutes do require certain language which must be included in order to ensure the prenuptial agreement and/or postnuptial agreement is enforceable. Mistakes in the agreement or the exclusion of certain key language can put your rights at risk and may impact the enforcement of the agreement.

With help from a pre-martial agreement attorney and or a postnuptial agreement attorney, you will be able to navigate the complexities of this area of the law. Reach out to an attorney at The Stout Law Firm, P.L.L.C. today so you can ensure your rights are properly protected.
