So you have decided that the marriage you are in is not right for you. At the Vitelli Law Firm we strive to answer all your questions during this emotional time. I understand that the breakdown of your family is the most stressful time in your life and you need a lawyer that is experienced and patient in helping you understand the law while guiding you through this daunting time. It is not suggested that you go through this emotional and psychological time alone.
The Vitelli Law Firm operates under Texas Law and my client must meet certain requirements prior to filing for divorce. There are jurisdictional requirements such as living in the state of Texas for 6 months and the county for 90 days prior to filing for divorce. Next you need to know that Texas is a no fault state. This means that you can file for divorce without placing a fault. The only thing that the court needs to know is that you and your spouse have irreconcilable differences. This does not mean you cannot use fault; it means that you are not required to.
When you seek a divorce some will ask if your divorce is contested or uncontested. Simple terms. Contested means you will be fighting over custody, property, or combination of the two. Uncontested means, you both are ready for this divorce and you have already discussed how to distribute your property and what to do with the children. Regardless if your case is contested or uncontested you need a lawyer that knows the Texas statutes and laws and is a strong advocate for you and your family.
