When coping with the end of your marriage, nothing eases your burden like an experienced divorce attorney. North Texas is filled with matrimonial lawyers, but Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, LLP offers divorcing spouses a unique mix of experienced advocacy and compassionate counsel. From offices in Denton, Flower Mound, and Gainesville, we protect clients’ rights without overlooking the emotional strain of the situation.

Flower Mound advocates work to reduce hostility in divorce cases

While some divorces go smoothly, others are far more complicated and contentious. Though we are skilled courtroom advocates, our family law attorneys emphasize a strategy that lessens hostility and employ creative problem-solving and a dignified approach that focuses on the parties’ futures. We start by making sure that you have a full understanding of legal issues such as:

  • Residency — One spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months to file for divorce in Texas.
  • Grounds — Traditional fault grounds and no-fault options are both available to spouses seeking to dissolve their marriage. We’ll review your circumstances and help you decide which option suits your needs best.
  • Property division — As a community property state, Texas holds that the division of marital assets results in equal shares to each party. However, questions about valuation can become complicated, and there might be disagreement over whether an inheritance or gift should be considered as separate property. We help to draft and negotiate property settlement agreements that allocate assets and debts appropriately.
  • Alimony — Known as spousal maintenance in Texas, alimony payments are usually limited to situations where one ex-spouse cannot meet their financial needs due to a disability or a marriage lasting more than 10 years where that spouse did not work outside the home. Each case is unique, and whether you are a potential payer or recipient, our lawyers will let you know what you can expect.
  • Modifications — Life changes such as a new job or home can create problems under an existing dissolution order. Our firm handles divorce modifications if adjustments to custody, child support or alimony are warranted.
  • Child custody — Disputes over child custody are best resolved quickly so that everyone can concentrate on the physical, educational and emotional needs of young people. By taking a personalized approach to each case, we maximize the likelihood of a successful outcome.

No matter what the nature of your divorce is, you and your children need experienced divorce attorneys to guide you through the process while keeping your relationships (and your sanity) intact. For more than 30 years, we have helped clients make a new start on a strong foundation.
