The Colony Divorce Lawyer

Denton County Attorney for Property Division, Spousal Support, and Child Custody

A divorce signifies the end of not only a personal relationship, but a legal relationship as well. As such, there is a necessary legal process for ending a marriage, which includes the division of marital property and, in many cases, the establishment of a child custody order. The decisions made during the divorce process have significant consequences, and it is important that you have a plan for protecting your interests, especially if the divorce is contentious.

At Pfister Family Law, we can help you prepare for your divorce and represent you throughout each stage of the process. In our multiple decades of legal experience, we have helped many clients in The Colony and throughout North Texas in their efforts to achieve a divorce resolution that meets their needs. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and litigators, and we will work with you to choose the right approach for your divorce case.

Starting the Divorce Process in The Colony

If you are considering a divorce, we can help you determine whether you meet the criteria to file for divorce in Denton County. Based on the details of your situation, we can help you decide whether an uncontested or agreed divorce may be your best option, or whether you will need to resolve the matters at hand through litigation. From there, we can help you complete and file your petition and start gathering the information and documents you will need to be fully prepared for negotiations or court dates. If your spouse has filed for divorce first, we can work with you to respond in a timely manner so that you begin the process in the best possible position.

Addressing Property and Financial Concerns

The division of property is an important concern no matter your socioeconomic status. If you have a high net worth and many high-value assets, we can help you identify which of those assets belong to you alone and which are subject to division in your divorce. Many valuable assets are difficult to divide, and we can work with you to take the necessary steps to fairly distribute business assets, retirement savings, and real estate properties without suffering avoidable losses.

If your financial resources are limited, we can help you define your priorities and advocate on your behalf to maintain the assets that are most important to you. We may also be able to help you negotiate or petition for spousal maintenance if you are concerned that your divorce will leave you unable to support yourself. If you believe that your spouse is attempting to unfairly manipulate the financial aspects of the divorce, perhaps by hiding assets, we can help you take action to uncover and prevent this behavior.

Addressing Child Custody Concerns

If you have children who are under the age of 18, your divorce resolution will need to address child custody and child support in addition to the division of community property. Whether through litigation or a negotiated agreement, you and your spouse will need to determine how the two of you will manage childcare and decision-making responsibilities, visitation schedules, and the costs of your children's basic needs.

There are a variety of possible outcomes when it comes to child custody, including a joint custody arrangement or a sole custody arrangement with visitation. We will help you understand the pros and cons of each option and what they may mean for your relationships with your children. Then, considering your children's best interests and your own priorities, we will advocate for the outcome that best meets your needs.
