We at Fabio & Merrill often provide legal advice and assistance to couples who want to save money and time by choosing this route.

For many couples seeking a divorce in Texas, they are faced with the uncertainty of creating a new life of independency and self-reliance.

Suggestions to prevent your divorce from being high-conflict

Our law firm is well aware of how tricky these cases can be, whether you are worried about child support, the distribution of your marital property, spousal support, or other family law matters.
