Most do not say "I do" planning for divorce, but divorce is a place where many couples end up.  While it is never a fun or easy process, a competent, caring attorney is the best asset you can have.  Texas is a community property state, and the Court has full authority to divide all community assets and debts.  Often, the case is resolved before the couple goes before the judge - either between the attorneys or during mediation.  

An attorney can help you understand your rights and the entire divorce process.  If children are involved, then you have two lawsuits in one - you are filing for divorce AND you are filing for a Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR) where the Court establishes the terms of the parent-child relationship (more information can be found under Custody and Child Support).

There are a number of options to consider when filing for divorce and throughout the entire process.  It is important to have an attorney whom you trust and on whom you can rely.  Divorce is one of the areas where attorneys are more than lawyers, they are also counselors.
