Houston Divorce Lawyer
Divorce is always an emotionally challenging process, especially if children are involved. If you and your ex have decided to part ways, you deserve compassion, honest advice, and solid legal strategies. And while divorce is never easy, working with an experienced Houston divorce lawyer can expedite the process. At Slate & Associates, we can help you navigate your divorce successfully while minimizing unnecessary conflict.
Protecting Your Interests With Care and Compassion
When filing for divorce in Texas, you will need to address a variety of issues — including property division, child custody and child support payments, and spousal support. And since each divorce is unique, you need a knowledgeable family law attorney who understands the goals you want to achieve.
At Slate & Associates, we spend time with you to learn about your values and concerns. We then help you build a personalized legal strategy that protects the things you prioritize most, like time with your children and your financial freedom.
Providing Effective Representation in and Out of Court
We handle a wide variety of divorce matters, including:
Collaborative divorce allows both parties to resolve their issues amicably. While each spouse will have their own divorce attorney, the process is typically fairly streamlined and much less stressful. If you and your ex can’t agree on an issue, a divorce mediator may step in to help.
In an uncontested divorce, you and your former partner agree on the terms of your divorce outside of court. Much like the collaborative divorce process, an uncontested divorce allows both parties to work together to reach a settlement, with the guidance of a family law attorney.
You may have to initiate a contested divorce if collaboration and mediation are not enough to help you and your spouse come to terms. These cases will proceed to a trial before a judge and typically be more costly. An aggressive and compassionate Houston divorce lawyer can help you protect your interests.
High Net Worth Divorce
When a divorce involves extensive assets, you want to ensure that the marital property is divided fairly. High net worth divorces require attention to detail and a deft hand. It’s best to work with an experienced divorce attorney who can defend what is rightfully yours.
If you or your spouse serve in the military, unique issues may arise in your claim, especially those involving retirement and pension funds. You need an attorney who understands the issues military families face. Our founder, Dennis M. Slate, served in the military for 25 years and knows how to help you navigate a military divorce
