Making the most of your mediation meeting

As you may be beginning to notice, divorce is rarely a seamless and smooth process. No matter the reason you and your spouse have decided to end your marriage, chances are contention will be inevitable as your divorce proceeds. Fortunately, there are valuable tools such as mediation where you and your spouse can utilize professional intervention to reach beneficial solutions. At Fabio + Merrill, we have been able to assist many Texas couples through the often complex process of divorce. 

False domestic violence accusations and divorce

Our law firm understands the variety of complex issues that can arise when it comes to domestic violence cases. On the one hand, victims may suffer at the hands of an abuser or fear that their children are being abused. Domestic violence is an area of family law that can be especially emotional and it is pivotal for those affected by this matter to carefully assess their rights and options. However, we also are aware that some people in Texas have been falsely accused of domestic violence. In fact, these false allegations can also be incredibly upsetting and disruptive.

Determining property during divorce without losing everything

For many divorcing Texas couples, the decision to end their marriage and go their separate ways was not one made without first considering other alternatives. Unfortunately, even though divorce is a helpful solution for many, it is costly in terms of a couple's health, financial independency and even reputation. However, with careful attention paid to doing things the right way, many couples have been able to overcome the difficulties of their circumstances and regain their independency and happiness. 

Establishing paternity in Texas

When a child is born to an unmarried couple in Texas, he or she does not automatically have a legal father. Instead, the biological father and mother have to take steps to establish his status. Once this is done, a father has all the rights and responsibilities of paternity, and the child receives all of those benefits and more.

Do you need to worry about hidden assets in your Texas divorce?

You and your spouse at one time were willing to pledge the rest of your lives to one another. Over time, however, your circumstances changed. That love and trust may end because of the actions of one spouse, or it may have simply degraded and disappeared over time. Whatever the cause for the breakdown of your marriage, you're seriously considering divorce. However, you want to ensure that your divorce is fair, especially when it comes to the process of splitting up your possessions.
