The Decision to File for Divorce

Before filing for a divorce, you and your partner should be absolutely certain that your marriage is beyond repair. Initiating a divorce suit in Texas can become complicated, stressful, and expensive. We recommend seeking legal advice from a divorce lawyer during this decision-making process. An experienced divorce lawyer will give you insight on the legal processes involved in divorce, and can help you decide whether it is the best option. If a divorce is deemed necessary, you must consider the actions that follow very carefully.

American Courtroom

In some cases, parties are able to resolve divorce suits and other family-related legal matters without the need for a court hearing by participating in an informal settlement or mediation. We encourage you to consider these options to avoid the stress and expense which accompanies litigation/trials. In other cases however, parties positions are so polarized that settlement is unrealistic, and the facts must be heard by a court. When this occurs and you need a divorce attorney, Jeanne Fugate is ready to fight for your rights.
