Katy Divorce Attorney

Qualified & Experienced Divorce Representation

The decision to end your marriage is a difficult one to make. When you are married, you typically share a home, intertwine finances, and often start a family with a person with whom you intend to spend the rest of your life. If your relationship with your spouse breaks down, it is usually a very difficult emotional time, and you will likely be dealing with feelings of sadness, grief, anxiety, and stress about the future.

As if these emotional issues were not enough, divorce often involves many practical considerations as well. Who will get the house? Will the children primarily live with one of you or will you split time? Will your spouse provide you with financial support or will you be required to pay alimony? The way that these and other issues are resolved can have a direct impact on your life and your future, so it is critically important to do everything possible to protect your legal rights. In almost every case, this starts with contacting an experienced divorce attorney in Katy.

Requirements for a Divorce in Texas

Some couples who decide to get divorced want it to be over immediately. Unfortunately, the process can take a considerable amount of time. At The Vendt Law Firm, P.L.L.C., we are committed to helping you navigate the process from start to finish, striving to simplify matters and make your life more stress-free.

As if making the decision to seek a divorce is not difficult enough, you also have to follow specific legal steps and meet certain requirements in order to have a divorce granted. Texas requires you to cite specific grounds for why you want the marriage to be legally ended.

Grounds for divorce in Texas include:

  • Discord or conflict have led the marriage to be insupportable with no expectation of reconciliation
  • Cruelty on the part of one spouse
  • Adultery
  • One spouse committed a felony that led to imprisonment of at least one year and no pardon occurred
  • One spouse abandoned the other for one year or longer
  • Separation without cohabitation for three years or longer
  • One spouse has a mental disorder that has required them to live in a mental health facility for three years or longer with unlikely hope for recovery

It is important to carefully choose the appropriate grounds for divorce that applies to your specific situation. In supportability is a no-fault based ground for divorce, so it is often easier to prove and is more commonly used. If you do choose to cite any fault-based grounds, you will be expected to provide evidence to support those grounds to the court. This can often lead to a very personal and contentious battle if the other spouse fights against the grounds cited. Our skilled Katy divorce lawyer can help you determine the best grounds for your divorce and can help you prove any fault-based grounds if necessary.

Committed to Favorably Resolving Contested Issues in Divorce

Unfortunately, not every couple who decides to get a divorce is able to agree on the way that issues related to their divorce will be resolved. In fact, if you have decided to get divorced, it is possible that your relationship with your spouse has degraded to the point that you are unable to communicate in a productive way. In acrimonious divorces where the issues are contested, it is crucial that each party retains a skilled and experienced Katy divorce attorney in order to ensure that their rights are protected.

At The Vendt Law Firm, PLLC, we regularly work with clients with disputes related to:

  • Property division
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support/alimony

Providing Ongoing Representation in Katy

Our representation does not necessarily end when your divorce is over. The ways that issues related to child custody, child support, and alimony are resolved at the time of your divorce are based on the circumstances that exist at that time. As we all know, things change as we go through life, sometimes dramatically. Our lawyer is available to help those who are seeking to modify or prevent modification to court orders related to support and custody.

Some of the events that may warrant a modification to a court order related to a divorce include:

  • Remarriage
  • A job offer
  • A health crisis
  • Evidence of drug or alcohol abuse on the part of the other parent
  • Physical abuse

Going through a divorce is difficult. The good news is that you do not have to do it alone. Our attorney is dedicated to providing individuals in the area with compassionate and effective legal representation that takes their needs and goals into account.
