Cameron Cowan.
What are the grounds for divorce in Texas?
The state of Texas recognizes seven different grounds for divorce: cruelty, insupportability, adultery, abandonment, conviction of a felony, living apart and confinement in a mental hospital. Your particular situation is unique, so it is important that you work with an attorney.
Should I establish paternity?
Yes! Fathers and mothers alike should ensure that paternity is established on your child's birth certificate. Establishing paternity can help with visitation,
child support and
child custody in a divorce or family law case. A paternity test is simple and reliable and can be granted voluntarily or through a court order.
What types of divorce options do I have?
There are a few different ways that a divorce can be approached. Each situation is different, but the Law Offices of J. Cameron Cowan can help you determine whether an annulment,
uncontested divorce or divorce through
mediation may be right for you and your family.
Can I change child custody arrangements?
Yes, with the assistance of an attorney, child custody arrangements specified in a divorce decree can be modified or changed on a temporary or permanent basis.
Can I modify my divorce decree?
In some situations, it may be necessary to work with an attorney to modify your existing divorce decree. This may be needed because of changing life or job situations, moves, or financial needs. I can help you petition the court for a modification that meets your needs.
What if I do not want to get a divorce?
If you were handed divorce papers from your spouse and do not wish to be divorced, you may consider working with an attorney. While your spouse has every right to file, it may be found that he or she lacks the required legal grounds for divorce. Through counseling or other means, you may potentially be able to repair your relationship.
Is a prenuptial agreement necessary?
Prenuptial agreements are something all couples should consider. If you are entering into a relationship with a substantial amount of income, debt or property, or if you have children from a previous marriage, prenuptial agreements can protect your assets in the event of a divorce.
Do I need an attorney to represent me?
Yes! It is never wise to try to represent yourself in a family law case. When you work with a divorce attorney, you can rest assured that your needs will be addressed and that an effective approach will be taken to benefit your case.
