North Texas Family Law Alexis Allen
Divorce is a huge step for any family, but it does not have to be a negative experience. As your attorney, Alexis works to listen carefully to your circumstances, and to help guide you through the path of divorce so that you emerge at the end of the case in a position which will best allow you to move forward and improve your life.
Texas is a community property state, so any property that was acquired during the marriage will be divided in an equitable or “just and right” manner. When children are involved, he main focus of the court in entering any order affecting possession or custody is that the order is in the best interest of the child. State law mandates that there is a minimum 60-day waiting period before a divorce can be finalized and this timeline begins from the time the initial petition is filed.
While divorce, like any court case, can be time-consuming and expensive, few people desire to become bogged down in litigation over during this emotional time.
That is why it is so important that you have a competent advocate in your corner who will anticipate and diligently handle the critical issues that may arise during your case. While it can be comforting to work with someone who will promise that you will win on every issue, that is rarely the reality of divorce. It is important to choose a lawyer who will speak with you honestly concerning your situation, providing reasonable and realistic expectations.
Each individual client comes into a divorce with different priorities and desires. Whether concerned about the well-being of the children or financial stability in the future, hiring a skilled and efficient family lawyer will help you work through the process, to help you achieve an outcome that you are most comfortable with. One size does not fit all in divorce, so Alexis strives to work with each of her clients to set realistic expectations and provide individualized advice based on the facts and law applicable to each
Alexis understands the financial strains that come with divorce, and like her services, her fees are tailored to the facts and circumstances presented in each case. For those clients who are able to work together in reaching an agreement for an uncontested divorce case, Alexis is proud to offer a faster, more affordable flat-fee solution. While not every couple can find a resolution this way, if you and your spouse can agree on the various aspects of a divorce settlement, this may be the solution for you. Some of the main areas you will need to agree on include spousal support, child custody, asset division, and child support. There are many benefits to an uncontested flat fee divorce, such as less stress for the parties involved, greater privacy, more control over the final agreement, and an affordable, one-time fee to handle the divorce proceedings.
