Family Cases in Austin and throughout Texas

Family cases in Austin, like many family cases in Texas, usually start when a divorce petition if filed by the divorce attorney representing the party bringing the divorce. The petition for divorce is a formal legal document that contains background information (such as when the marriage and separation occurred and the names, ages, and social security number of any minor children), states the reason a divorce is desired, and requests relief (including child custody, property division, and other matters). Typically, the information contained in the petition is obtained by the Austin divorce attorney when the attorney and client meet to discuss the background facts of the marriage and the reasons for divorce.

Property Division in a Divorce

In the divorce decree, the court must divide all the parties' community property. The court cannot give the separate property of one spouse to the other spouse, except with the owner's agreement. Therefore, the divorce attorneys must present evidence to help a court decide whether each item owned by the parties is community or separate property.

Custody, Visitation and Child Support

There is no doubt divorce affects the lives of scores of children in Austin, and throughout Texas. With very few exceptions, divorcing couples with the help of their divorce attorneys, can and should agree on the issues of custody and visitation. The agreement should ensure that the child or children maintain close and continuing contact with both parties after the divorce is final. If an agreement is reached, the child or children will be spared the unnecessary and destructive fighting between the parents. Most Divorce Attorneys in Austin will tell you that parents typically rank the priority of their children ahead of all the other issues typically involved in a divorce.

Enforcement of Court Orders

The parties to a divorce case have a wide range of remedies to enforce and carry out the terms and conditions of a divorce decree. The most widely used method of enforcing orders is through motions for contempt. If a person violates a specific and unambiguous court order (or portion thereof), this person can be held in contempt if he or she had the ability to comply with the order.

Child Snatching and Parental Kidnapping

The Federal government, as well as the various states, have recognized the dangers and tragedy of parental kidnapping. Texas adopted the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act, which is designed to discourage one state from changing another state's custody order.
