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

Hear from Our Past Family Law Clients

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.
