Divorce isn’t what anyone plans on.

Our divorce attorneys take the care and time to get to know your situation and wholeheartedly devote themselves to protecting your custody rights and property.

Oxner Legha is an experienced family law firm that has helped in no fault divorces, custody and guardianship cases, and property disputes.

Our Divorce Process

Consultation

We like to understand all of the facts and the desired outcome at the beginning of a case to give the best legal counsel for your divorce.

Legal Documentation

Our divorce attorneys create a Petition for Divorce.

Legal Notice

The person initiating the divorce must then give legal notice to their former partner. Our divorce attorneys can help identify the best way to give legal notice.

Negotiation

The couple then determines the type of divorce: no fault or fault based. Community property, asset and debt distribution, custody arrangements, and spousal support decisions will need to be determined in advance of the final divorce papers. Our divorce attorneys work with you to understand what you’re owed and how to negotiate for a positive outcome.

Trial

In the event that the two parties cannot decide, we’ll represent you in court and strongly defend your case. We’ll explore every legal avenue to ensure you and your family are protected under the law.

Divorce Types in Texas

No Fault Divorce

If possible, this type of divorce gives you more control of the outcome in a less combative environment.

Fault Based Divorce

It may be advantageous to pursue a fault based divorce. You’ll need to be able to prove that one of the following situations applied to your case:

  • Cruel treatment
  • Abandonment for at least one year
  • One spouse has been incarcerated for more than a year
  • Your former partner has been in a mental hospital for more than three years
  • You have been living apart for at least three years
  • One of the spouses committed a felony
We Fight for What Is Fair

Spousal Support

While rare in Texas, spousal support can be awarded by the court if the following applies to you:

  • There was documented violence committed against you or your children by your spouse within the last two years
  • You are in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen
  • You and your spouse agree to spousal support after the divorce
  • The marriage lasted for over 10 years, you lack income, and you are either disabled, the caretaker for your disabled child, or unable to provide for your minimum needs

I had the pleasure to consult with Jason on potential defamation litigation against a 3rd party. He provided a wealth of information, and made sure I was making the right choice for my family. I will be back for all my legal needs.

I HIGHLY recommend this firm to handle any Real Estate Law business you may have. Jason and his team are very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and take care of your business in a timely manner, with complete integrity. I had a situation with a property deed, and somebody had misinformed me as to the best method to handle it. Jason immediately understood my situation, and advised me of the correct way to handle it, after hearing various ways to handle a special situation. He and his Office Manager (Myra) stay on top of every aspect of your business, and follow up to ensure that your matter worked out as planned. My particular situation didn’t involve any disputes, but I wanted it handled correctly. He set up a conference call between myself, the other party, and him to ensure we were all aligned on the process and documents involved, thoroughly explained everything to both of us, where we felt comfortable and trusting that it was being handled correctly. The other party involved felt very secure about him handling our business, and spoke highly of him and his Team, although I hired him to represent me, but he was very fair and honest in explaining everything thoroughly to her, and asked if we both understood a few times during his initial consultation. His team prepared the documents exactly how he explained, and set up times to meet in person to sign documents with a notary in his office. They made things flow so smoothly and timely, explaining every step along the way, got the documents recorded with Harris County, so that we could move forward with our deed transfer in place. I retained him just to make sure we were doing everything correctly, and he advised us of the correct method, explained it thoroughly, prepared paperwork for our signature, filed them with the county, and of course gave us copies of everything along the way. His fees were very reasonable, especially considering the knowledge, professionalism, and courtesy/friendliness exhibited by the team. Jason always made time to speak with me, and provided some guidance on a few questions that were not necessarily associated with my situation, which was extremely helpful to me.On a side note, I chose Jason to represent me when I needed to get something started ASAP, so I was randomly calling all Real Estate Lawyers in the area, and he just happened to answer my call after 6:00pm while leaving the office on a Friday evening. I asked him if I could have a 2 minute conversation with him about my situation. Although he was leaving after a long week, he told me I had 5 free minutes of his time to explain my situation, and then explained the proper way to handle it, explained the process and documents, and scheduled an initial consultation with him for the the next week, which would accommodate everybody’s schedule. At least 20 minutes later, we ended our discussion, which is a huge compliment to him for talking to me without appointment 1 1/2 hours after the office had closed (not promising that on his behalf, for everybody). I can not say enough about the professionalism, knowledge, and definitely customer service exhibited by Jason and his team. They truly work as a team, and treat you like family. I would recommend the firm to anybody who has the need for the services they offer and have expertise in. Jason will be the first to tell you whether he has expertise in a particular area of Law, and most definitely follows the Lawyer’s Creed. His Office Manager (Myra) is fantastic with staying on top of things, does fantastic work,, and keeps clients informed about everything that is happening, with a professional and friendly manner. This firm will treat you like family, but also have expertise, knowledge, and professionalism at the forefront. Thank you to Jason, Myra, and Team.Gary Annis

My husband and I were looking to purchase a local business and needed a lawyer to draw up paperwork. Mr. Oxner was very knowledgeable in process and gave solid advice to soon to be first time business owners. We were so pleased with his staff of highly professional office personnel, we used Mr. Oxner for our family estate planning as well as for our extended families planning. It is rare to find the mixture of education, skill, experience, AND professionalism with the ease in communicating our desires that we have experienced with this firm. We appreciate the pleasant and encouraging conversations throughout each process. It was worth the 1-1/2 hour drive for us to meet in office. My husband always says, " it cost for excellence, you get what you pay for"....Mr. Oxner was very competitive in contract prices but I believe his firm adds a personal warmth, a calming affect if you will that in my book is priceless. Thank you Mr. Oxner...and staff!

Ms. Legha represented me in a divorce. She always had my best interest in mind, listening and responding to what I was saying. She offered pros and cons in every discussion, and always respected my opinions. Ms. Legha is very thorough and knowledgeable and led me through the process effectively. After the hearing, she gave me specific instructions for my responsibilities concerning documents and changes to be made. Any questions that arose, she researched thoroughly. Her staff is outstanding and very responsive to any request. The entire group is highly intelligent and at the same time most personable and concerned about their clients.Follow-UpRecently, I returned to the Oxner Legha Law Firm and engaged Mr. Oxner to write my new will. He is a perfect combination of a knowledgable lawyer, an attentive listener, and an effective communicator. He heard my concerns, my wishes, and then reviewed my divorce papers. He gave me options that covered all of my needs and explained the pros and cons of each option. When I popped up with new information that I had failed to share at the beginning, he very patiently discussed any implications that may arise. His patience is endless. As a client, I felt calm and confident in his ability to do a thorough job. The staff is excellent and the process of virtual consultation was flawless and time efficient. If I have any legal needs in the future, without a doubt, this is the law firm I will be using.

I was referred to the Oxner Law Firm by another attorney, from my initial phone call I was completely put at ease. My consult with Jason was insightful and I walked away feeling more knowledgeable about my case and my legal rights. Jason went above and beyond and helped me draft a legal document. I would definitely recommend this office to all my friends and family!

If you or anyone you know is going through one of the toughest things to deal with in life such as a divorce and/or seeking legal custody of children, I highly recommend Arpita Legha and her team. She is an intelligent, articulate attorney that possesses great empathy towards a most difficult situation. I was very sad to find myself in the situation where I felt divorce was the best option but knew that I needed help to navigate this and am so fortunate I had Arpita by my side through this journey.From the moment I walked in for a consultation, it was very clear that Arpita was first and foremost, a compassionate, honest and caring human being who was invested in helping me through the process over all else. She was the first attorney I met with and I hired her that day, didn’t need to interview any others. I was confident she was the best person to guide me through this divorce and she proved me 100% correct.She was ALWAYS extremely communicative, straight forward and accessible. No matter how much time passed between our communications, she was continually dedicated to knowing all the details of my case. Her fees were affordable, and she happily worked with me to formulate a payment plan that I was comfortable with. She was consistent in meeting any deadlines discussed and honest in any challenges she foresaw. When I was led by emotion, she understood behaviors we encountered that I still did not and made sure that she was successful in looking out for the best interest of myself and my children. For this I am extremely grateful.Arpita was a fierce advocate for me and I couldn’t have gotten through the process without her. Even though my divorce was final a year and a half ago, she still calls and checks in with me periodically to see how the kids and I are doing … this is the biggest thing that sets her apart from other family law attorneys, SHE SINCERELY CARES.

Arpita goes above and beyond to help her clients. She takes the time to explain each step, and keeps her clients well informed throughout the daunting process of the legal system. She is thorough and will leave no stone unturned to get the right result for her client. She is very approachable and spent a lot of time answering all my questions in detail. I have referred many friends and family members to her and will continue to seek her legal expertise. She is very knowledgeable, and takes your privacy very seriously. I highly recommend her.
