Texas Contested Divorce Lawyers

Trial Attorneys for Divorce Litigation in North Texas

When spouses are unable or unwilling to work together to resolve issues related to the dissolution of their marriage, this may result in a contested divorce. These types of divorces might be contentious from the start, but even if spouses get along fairly well at the beginning of their divorce, they may encounter more difficult disputes as their case proceeds, and they may struggle to resolve the various issues that will need to be addressed. At J.A. Griffin Law Firm, P.C., our team is well-versed in both contested and uncontested divorce cases. Regardless of the level of animosity between you and your spouse, you can count on us to have your back and help you navigate this complex legal situation.

J.A. Griffin is a highly experienced family law attorney, having successfully guided many clients in and around Parker County and Wise County through the divorce process. Depending on the circumstances of your case, some disputes could potentially be settled via mediation or direct negotiations with your spouse and their attorney. However, if these talks prove fruitless, it is possible that litigation may become necessary, and a family court judge may make the final decisions on how the outstanding issues will be handled. Our team understands the gravity of your situation, and we are prepared to utilize our knowledge, skills, and resources in order to reach the best possible result in your contested divorce.

Disputes That May Need to Be Resolved in a Contested Divorce

In Texas, a divorce may become contested due to numerous factors. In many cases, the most contentious issue is child custody. Divorcing parents can sometimes forget to keep their children's best interests in mind, and they may focus on themselves and their own desires instead. Our team realizes how detrimental a difficult divorce can be for a child's well-being, which is why we always work to provide guidance to our clients to help them manage the difficult emotions they are experiencing and focus on the best interests of their kids.

Disputes can also arise when spouses are required to address complicated financial matters, and this is a common source of contention in high asset divorce cases. If you own one or more high-value real estate properties, or if you or your spouse have invested in business ventures, the property division process can become heated and contentious. It is important to remember that both parties should receive a fair and equitable share of the marital assets you own. However, your opinions about what is fair and reasonable may differ drastically from your spouse's opinions.

At J.A. Griffin Law Firm, P.C., our team can use our knowledge of the law and our experience advocating on behalf of clients to ensure that you will be able to resolve these issues effectively. We will fight to make sure you can address financial matters and secure the necessary resources that will allow you to move forward confidently in your life's endeavors.

Taking the Necessary Steps to Prepare for Divorce Litigation

Here at our firm, we recognize that completing a contested divorce is likely to take a significant amount of time, and many cases stretch on for months or years. A significant amount of this time will involve discovery, and relevant information and evidence may be gathered through methods such as interrogatories, subpoenas, and depositions. If your spouse and their attorney refuse to cooperate with you during this process, or if you encounter disputes that you are unable to resolve, your case may be scheduled for trial.

From our very first meeting with you, we will begin taking steps to ensure that you will be able to achieve the most favorable outcome during divorce litigation. We will discuss your goals and expectations, and we will help you determine the best strategies to use during your case. We will make sure that all the information needed to effectively advocate on your behalf is obtained from your spouse or other parties, and we will prepare to represent you in all court proceedings, including hearings, pre-trial conferences, and a divorce trial. Through each stage of litigation, you can be confident that our team will aggressively fight to protect your rights and interests.
