Frequently Asked Questions


These are some of the more frequently asked questions we have received over the years. The answers are not to be construed as legal advice and no attorney-client relationship exists unless there is a signed fee agreement with the firm.

  • Is the consultation free?

    Our initial consultations for family law cases, probate matters, and bankruptcies are free. There are certain types of cases that we do charge for the initial consultation on a case-by-case basis. If you aren't sure, feel free to send us a message or give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.

  • Do I need to bring anything to the initial consult?

    We always recommend bringing as much documentation as you can to your initial consultation. The more information the attorney has, the better able he is to determine what type of help you may need. If your home is up for foreclosure, the attorney will need your last mortgage statement, your last paystub, and any foreclosure notices you may have received. If you have been sued, please bring in a copy of any pleadings you have received.

  • How much do you charge for a divorce?

    A lot goes into determining what your costs will end up being in a divorce. From where you reside, to the number of children, if any, to how antagonistic you and your spouse are. At your initial consultation, the attorney will ask questions to try to feel out the entire situation before giving you a quote.

  • Can I get divorced in Texas if I am deployed elsewhere?

    Most likely yes. This is still a determined on a case-by-case basis, but Texas law does allow military and government employees who are stationed elsewhere in the state, or even elsewhere in the world, to claim the last county in Texas as his or her legal residence and domicile for purposes of meeting the jurisdictional requirements for divorce. This doesn't mean it will be smooth, as there are almost always hiccups, but it does mean we can almost always get you there.

  • Can I enforce my divorce decree if my husband and I live out of state?

    Maybe. Again, this is a case-by-case determination and the attorney will need to ask more specifics before giving you a better answer. Typically the Court that granted a divorce has jurisdiction to enforce, but there are always caveats. Make sure to bring your decree with you to the initial consultation so the attorney can give you a better answer.
