In modern times, divorce mediation and the establishment of a fair settlement is the goal in most cases. Unfortunately, some spouses refuse to cooperate, making litigation necessary. We are ready for this possibility. Often, the sticking point that prevents a divorce agreement centers around the division of marital property.

Texas is a community property state, meaning that anything classified as a marital asset is equally owned by both spouses, regardless of their respective earnings. Each spouse is presumed to have made equal contributions to the marriage, whether that means working for pay or working at home. During a divorce, marital property must be divided in a manner that is "fair and just."

Contributions to a retirement account made during the marriage by either spouse are marital property to be divided 50/50, as are all other assets acquired while you were married. There are limited exceptions; for example, if you have a personal injury settlement, that belongs strictly to you.

Marsala Law Group wants to help preserve your lifestyle, and if that means fighting to ensure that you receive spousal support (alimony), that is what we will do.

Child Support and Child Custody Lawyers

We understand that nothing is more important than the bond you share with your children. Our attorneys will put our best efforts into making sure you get the most possible time with your child and the full amount of support your child deserves from the other parent.

Texas divides child custody into two separate issues. The first is conservatorship - the right to make decisions about your children's upbringing, including their education and medical care. The second is possession and access - time with your child. These issues are always decided based on the best interests of the child. As the court considers a number of factors in deciding custody concerns, we can design arguments based on each and every factor to keep you and your children together as much as possible.

Your child also has the right to receive financial support from both parents. Texas calculates child support as a percentage of the noncustodial parent's income. Our goal is to maximize the amount of support you will have access to so that you can provide for your children's needs.
