Fairview Divorce Lawyers

Family Law Attorneys in Collin County, Texas

Divorce can be stressful for everyone involved. When you have reached a point in your marriage where there is such significant conflict you can no longer be together, divorce can give you the freedom you are looking for. However, the process might not be easy. Our lawyers are here to simplify the process for you and to minimize the amount of direct conflict you will face. Being represented by a skilled and practiced attorney can make a big difference in how smoothly your divorce will go.

The Ramage Law Group is well-versed in a variety of issues that might arise in a divorce, from dividing a jointly-owned business to helping a parent relocate after the divorce is finalized. We will work closely with you to understand what your priorities and interests are, while also addressing your child's needs during the process, ensuring that we can help you achieve your most important goals.

Law Firm for Child Custody During Divorce

Child custody arrangements are often a parent's top priority during their divorce. Most parents attempt to establish a custody plan by agreement—and succeed in doing so. High-conflict custody cases may sometimes require litigation, but this is often a last resort that is used when one parent may potentially pose a risk of harm to the child.

Most parental divorces result in a joint custody arrangement. It is almost always in a child's best interest to maintain a relationship with both their mother and their father. One parent may have primary custody, while the other may have visitation as frequently as possible. The parent with less physical custody time may pay child support. However, a child may also split their time evenly between both households if the parents both live close enough to the child's school. Decision-making rights or "legal custody" is often shared as well.

How Marital Property Is Divided in Collin County

Texas is a community property state, meaning that all marital assets are owned equally by both spouses. This means that distinguishing between marital and separate property is critical. Your separate property is all yours, while your marital property is half yours. Your separate property might include an inheritance, property you owned before the marriage, gifts you received, and proceeds from personal injury lawsuits.

Your marital property will likely be divided evenly between you and your spouse if the court is left to make decisions. If you choose collaborative divorce, there is more leeway for you and your spouse to work together with help from a mediator and guidance from your attorneys to divide your marital assets in a way that works for you both.

Special Issues in Divorce Our Law Firm Can Help With

Your divorce may involve special or complex issues. Our attorneys are experienced in resolving complicated divorce issues, such as:

  • High-asset divorce - Certain assets, like multiple real estate holdings, stocks, and other joint investments can be difficult to divide.
  • Joint business ventures - If you and your spouse have a family business, determining how to divide those interests while keeping the business profitable can be challenging.
  • Dividing retirement accounts - The closer you are to retirement, the more important the money you have saved in these accounts is likely to be. Regardless of whose income was used to build up a retirement account, both spouses are usually entitled to half of the funds.
  • Spousal maintenance - The longer you have been married and the less able to work and support yourself you are, the more likely it is that you can receive alimony payments.
  • Divorce with a prenuptial agreement - If you have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, this contract will likely govern most property division issues. However, our lawyers may be able to challenge a prenuptial agreement that is drastically unfair or one you were coerced into signing, and we can address any other issues that may arise regarding the interpretation of the agreements you have made with your spouse.
