Fighting for a Positive Resolution to Your Divorce
Contentious disputes that arise during a divorce need to be addressed by an experienced professional. Attempting to resolve these conflicts on your own can make matters worse or lead to a less-than-favorable outcome.
Pfister Family Law can help you if your divorce was the result of:
- Domestic violence
Should your divorce require it, we will not hesitate to utilize a network of professionals to support your position. This network includes custody evaluators and child psychologists, as well as property appraisers and valuation experts. If there is any reason to believe there are hidden assets or fraud, we will use forensic accountants and private investigators to ensure all assets are accounted for and on the table.
Divorce Laws in Texas
Texas is a "no-fault" state. However, one party may file for divorce on statutory grounds. Statutory grounds can include adultery and physical or mental cruelty. These factors can be considered by the court when determining property division, spousal support, and custody. An attorney who is experienced in contested divorce proceedings can ensure that such factors are known and considered by the court.
The top six issues an experienced attorney can help with include:
- Contested child custody
- Complex property division
- Alimony and spousal maintenance
- Child support enforcement
- Prenuptial agreements
- Hidden assets
Mediation is often a cost- and time-effective method of resolving family law issues. Mediation, an alternative dispute-resolution modality, is usually required before a case can proceed to trial and gives each party a say in framing the issues.
If you and your spouse already have an attorney, you can hire John Pfister, Jr. to mediate your case. He specializes in complex divorce and contested custody cases. Our firm has successfully negotiated settlements for difficult cases that otherwise would have gone to trial.
