When considering divorce as an option to resolve your marital issues, there are several things you should be aware of. Deborah L.Thompson, Attorney at Law is a Houston, Texas family law attorney who can explain to you the nuances of Houston, Texas divorce law, guide you through the process, and ensure your needs are met throughout the course of the divorce. She will also help you understand the differences between contested and uncontested divorce as well as determine what other factors may affect your divorce—and your life.

Contested Divorce

In a contested divorce, you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse cannot agree on some or all of the terms of your divorce decree. Such items as property division, child custody, child support, and debt division are some of the most common issues over which many couples disagree. Deborah L.Thompson, Attorney at Law will guide you through the mediation and trial of your contested divorce and work to obtain your goals.

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is the exact opposite of the contested option. When you and your spouse agree to the terms of your divorce decree or your spouse does not provide an answer to your original petition for divorce, you may ask the court for an uncontested divorce. This option is much simpler but still has complicated paperwork to be prepared by your Houston, Texas family law attorney.

Other Elements in Divorce

Divorce is not a cut-and-dry process that simply separates two individuals and relieves them of their marriage. Other elements of your lives come into contention during divorce proceedings that can make the process very complicated. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Child Custody
  • Visitation Rights
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support
  • Property Division
  • Assets Division
  • Debt Division
  • Joint Business Endeavors
  • Paternity
  • Military Issues
