Family law cases can be emotionally draining for all parties involved. They can also significantly reshape how the lives of each impacted person will look for years to come. An experienced League City family lawyer from our office is there to provide sharp legal thinking and vigorous advocacy for our clients’ best interests at a time when they need it most.
A Texas court is charged with making custody decisions based solely on how it perceives the best interests of the child. It’s true that parents know their children better than anyone, but custody can come down to how well a parent’s lawyer understands all the finer points of family law, how well they flesh out all the relevant details in pre-trial discovery and how well they present that information before the court.
It’s not uncommon for divorce to be a stressful experience. It’s also not uncommon for divorces to be filled with complex legal issues. Property division involves determining what assets belong to whom, and whether or not fault was a contributing factor in the breakup of the marriage. Spousal support has to be considered, as does child support and custody. Clients going through a personally difficult time rely on their League City divorce lawyer to have a firm handle on these and a hundred other details. That’s what we do.
Texas is one of six states that do not recognize legal separation prior to divorce. That means a couple that has chosen to divorce almost always secures temporary orders that provide some stability before a final divorce agreement or trial is finalized. These orders address can be agreed upon in mediation, or decided by the judge in a mini-trial if there is not agreement. The temporary orders are an important first step in any family law case, and create momentum for the case, because they often determine from the outset who stays in the house, how bills are taken care of what the primary residence of children will be, among others.Once these preliminary decisions have been made, (either by agreement or by the judge) and the parties live under this framework for weeks or months) the status quo is hard to change. As a result, the final decree, or final orders in a custody case often look similar to what was originally ordered in the temporary orders.
Rob Musemeche is Board Certified in Family Law, and has 35 years years experience handling these complex and emotionally trying cases. We draw on that experience to know what questions to ask and what issues to anticipate in the handling temporary orders hearings in a family law case.
