What is collaborative divorce? How can it help me?

Collaborative divorce can help save you money, time, and headache. The process can help you avoid costly litigation when both spouses agree to certain terms, such as child custody, visitation, and spousal support. The main benefit of a collaborative divorce is that you and your ex do not have to fight, sparing your children and your family the pain of separation.

How are assets divided during a divorce?

The more assets you have, the more complicated the property division process can be. Issues regarding what makes up your marital property, including real property and retirement and investment accounts, can be contentious, and often require the help of a skilled divorce lawyer and financial professionals.

Business owners in particular should seek assistance from an Austin divorce attorney, as dividing your interest can be extremely complicated. At Benouis Law we always seek to protect your best interests throughout the divorce process.

What happens if I have a prenuptial agreement?

A pre- or postnuptial agreement can greatly expedite the divorce process. Agreeing on major issues before you are even married can help you in the worst case situations of death or divorce. Many people believe that these agreements are “bad luck” before a marriage, but agreeing on terms can avoid contentious litigation, stress, and arguments over property division.

Who will get custody of my children?

The answer to this question depends on your circumstances. The law does not favor child custody to go to a father or a mother, but rather looks at what is in the best interests of your children. The court will take into account any instances of abuse, the conditions, and standard of living of your children, and their wishes if they are old enough.
