How Do I Protect Myself Financially In A Divorce?
It’s important to set feelings aside when dealing with property division in a divorce case and try to keep a clear mindset while assessing your assets and debts that will be divided during the divorce process.
Most find it best to hire an experienced divorce attorney to help them protect their finances during a divorce. When choosing an attorney, look for one who prioritizes mediation or collaborative divorce over litigation. Structured procedures where both spouses negotiate solutions to their financial and other disputes are preferred, as both parties tend to fare better. A divorce lawyer can also help you take inventory of your assets and debts so you fully understand where your money is.
How Much Does A Texas Divorce Cost?
Everyone wants to be careful with attorney fees, us included. Potential clients always ask our lawyers how much their case will cost. Unfortunately, we can’t provide much insight into their final bill, because there are too many factors at play. The most critical factor impacting the overall cost of a case is the degree of conflict. A client’s ability to control the degree of conflict in a family law dispute is sometimes limited. The amount of conflict is often unknown or underestimated.
Many other factors may also impact the cost of a case. Those include poor strategic planning and selecting an attorney based on factors not related to your goal. Since there are so many things impacting the cost of a case, it’s impossible for a good attorney to quote you an overall cost. We can, however, use our experience to provide you insight into how certain factors impact the average cost, as determined by the American Bar Association.
