Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Divorce at Ham Law

Q1: How long does the divorce process take in Texas?

A1: The duration of a divorce in Texas, whether contested or uncontested, can vary significantly based on factors such as the complexity of the case and the speed at which the parties can reach an agreement. The minimum time frame is 60 days from the date the divorce petition is filed, but for more complex cases, the process can extend to several months or even over a year. At Ham Law, our experienced Divorce Attorneys work diligently to navigate through the legal intricacies, aiming to streamline the process and achieve timely resolutions for our clients.

A2: An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties agree on all major issues, including property division, child custody, and support. On the other hand, a contested divorce arises when there are disagreements on one or more of these issues, necessitating negotiation, mediation, or court intervention for resolution. At Ham Law, our dedicated Divorce Attorneys are well-versed in handling both uncontested and contested divorces, providing the expertise needed to guide our clients through the legal process with care and efficiency.

A3: Texas is a community property state, meaning that most property acquired during the marriage is considered jointly owned and is divided equitably (though not always equally) upon divorce. Separate property, which includes assets owned before marriage or acquired by gift or inheritance, typically remains with the original owner. When facing the complexities of property division in a divorce, having a skilled Divorce Attorney from Ham Law can ensure that your rights are protected, and the division is handled with the expertise needed to achieve a fair outcome.

A4: Child custody, known as conservatorship in Texas, is determined based on the best interests of the child. Factors considered include the child’s physical and emotional needs, each parent’s ability to care for the child, the stability of each home environment, and sometimes the child’s own preferences.

A5: Yes, divorce decrees can be modified under certain circumstances, such as significant changes in income, relocation, or changes in the child’s needs. Modifications can apply to child support, custody arrangements, and visitation schedules.

A6: While it’s possible to proceed with a divorce without an attorney, having legal representation is highly recommended, especially in contested cases or those involving complex issues. A lawyer can provide valuable guidance, ensure your rights are protected, and help negotiate a fair settlement.

A7: Texas allows for both no-fault and fault-based divorces. No-fault divorce does not require proving wrongdoing by either spouse, citing only “insupportability” as the reason. Fault-based grounds include adultery, cruelty, felony conviction, abandonment, living apart for at least three years, and confinement in a mental hospital.

A8: Alimony, or spousal support, is not guaranteed in Texas divorces. It may be awarded under certain conditions, such as a significant disparity in earning capacity, duration of the marriage, a spouse’s contribution as a homemaker, or a spouse’s disability. The amount and duration are determined based on several factors, including the needs of the requesting spouse and the paying spouse’s ability to pay.
