Legal Representation For Contested And Uncontested Divorce

Divorce is a multifaceted challenge in life that causes emotional and financial stress for most couples and families. Life after divorce can take time for readjustment, and adequate preparation during the divorce process is necessary. The need to lay a good foundation for an outcome you can live with is a large reason to choose your divorce attorney carefully.

Our attorneys at Scanio & Scanio, A Professional Corporation, offer both empathy and guidance to help you get through the legal aspects of a marital dissolution in Texas with confidence.

Our family law attorneys offer practical, results-oriented legal representation for divorce covering a variety of life circumstances such as:

  • Military divorce
  • High-asset divorce
  • Divorce for business owners
  • Divorce involving two-career couples
  • Divorce involving a breadwinner and a dependent spouse
  • Divorce after a short-term marriage
  • Divorce after a long-term marriage
  • Collaborative divorce cases

Divorces typically involve the division of assets and liabilities accumulated over the course of the marriage, which may include the receipt or payment of spousal support or alimony. When there are children, a divorce will also include orders for child custody and/or child support. Divorce will affect your entire family and most significantly the children. We will walk you through your options for child possession and visitation, child support, and medical support of the children. Some couples work out an agreement on their own for visitation with the children and on how assets should be divided in a divorce. If this is the case, one spouse can ask our law firm to represent him or her in an uncontested divorce quite efficiently.

Often, we find that couples discover that they do not agree on how to divide assets and liabilities. There may be obstacles arriving at a settlement for property division, including provisions for:

  • Retirement benefits, including company pensions, military pensions, 401(k) savings accounts, teachers' retirement accounts and other types of income that will come later in life
  • Investments
  • Insurance
  • Vacation property, collectibles or other special assets
