Texas family law attorneys protecting your interests
Marriage will often be the most important legal event to happen to you, outside death. Due to this, it is incredibly important to set out your marital affairs in line with best legal practices that secure your interests and protect your future.
Our skilled family law attorneys are very experienced in advising on and drafting pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements to protect your interests. Under the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act, premarital agreements must be in writing and must be signed by a couple before they marry.
Both spouses must disclose their debts and assets before signing the agreement, which must be concluded in contemplation of marriage. With our extensive experience, we can properly guard against factors that may make the agreement unenforceable, such as unconscionable agreement or non-voluntariness.
We have advised on several high-asset marriages where the spouses need extensive measures to preserve the integrity of their finances. The presumption in Texas is that all property that accrues to each spouse in the marriage becomes community property which can be divided equally upon divorce.
The nature of property accrued in the marriage and the nature of proof required to overcome this presumption makes high-asset divorces in Texas complicated. We understand the best strategies that can help with defining what amounts to marital property and how the finances of each individual should be treated in the marriage.
We have also served couples from all over Texas, including Brownsville and the entire Rio Grande area on issues relating to paternity. Sadly, there are many instances when paternity may be in doubt. It may be necessary to establish paternity in order to clarify certain rights and obligations.
We have advised couples on the appropriate course of action in these instances, including when a paternity test or suit is required. Paternity can also be established when an acknowledgement of paternity form is signed or through presumption. A presumption of paternity arises through marriage or representation.
Collaborative divorce and alternative dispute resolution
In cases where the dissolution of a marriage is inevitable, our highly skilled and capable Brownsville divorce attorneys can provide specialist help. In order for a person to sue for divorce in Texas, they have lived in the state for at least 6 months before filing. One of the parties to the divorce must also have been resident in the county where the divorce is filed for at least 90 days.
Texas recognizes no-fault divorces, although there are certain instances where identification of a fault ground can influence property division. Our skilled Brownsville family law attorneys can help you understand which approach is best for your divorce and make sure the proper process is followed.
Due to the often contentious nature of divorce, you may be more willing to take a collaborative approach towards your divorce. At Kenny Perez Law, we are deeply experienced with advising on and applying a range of alternative dispute resolution and collaborative divorce approaches.
Under our collaborative law approach, we will work to create a safe space where you and your spouse can identify, express and resolve your conflicts without going to court. Using this approach, you can avoid unnecessary confrontations in court and spare your children the unfortunate spectacle of an acrimonious court battle.
We can help you and your spouse come to mutually beneficial arrangements relating to property division, child custody and support in a divorce settlement agreement.
