Family, in many cases, is a large part of a person’s life. Whether
you are married for three decades and now have 10 grandchildren, or you
have been married for a few years; you understand how valuable this family
bond is. Marriage in particular is often the closest relationship we have
in life, a person who knows everything about us; the good and the bad.
While many couples are able to work through the ups and downs together,
there are some couples that feel like enough is enough, and they want
a divorce. If you are feeling as though you are just ready to move on,
or you can no longer stand being in the same room with your spouse, divorce
is a viable option for you. If this is you, consider contacting a
Rockwall divorce attorney today at the
Law Offices of Estrada & Estrada.
If you or your spouse is considering filing for a divorce, hiring an experienced
divorce attorney is a beneficial addition to seeing through that all of
your legal needs are represented and fought for. Many times individuals
don’t understand how much goes in to a divorce, it is not just the
signing of a document and moving away, there are many legal matters that
are involved too which is why hiring an attorney is essential.
Shannon M. Estrada has been
practicing law for 12 years now, and has had the opportunity to help numerous individual with their
legal needs. She attended Texas Tech University where she graduated in
1994 with her B.S. degree. Just a few years later in 2000 she graduated
with her Juris Doctorate from South Texas College of Law. Now as a practicing
attorney she is currently a member of the State Bar of Texas Family Law
and various other associations. Shannon has also received a good rating from
Avvo, a peer legal and client review website. Here you will find that she has
been well rated specifically for her professional conduct, an important
detail to know when looking for an attorney.
When hiring a family attorney, it is likely that the divorce itself won’t
be your only concern. A divorce entails many important facets including
spousal support, and
child support. We also have experience helping clients that are going through a
contested divorce, or are considering a
legal separation before making the split completely final. Parents after their divorce
has been finalized may also want to discuss things like
visitation or perhaps even modifying their custody arrangements, etc.
When considering a divorce, you and your spouse may be in one of many situations.
Perhaps you are splitting mutually, and you feel as though there will
be no problem creating a settlement that is fair for the two of you,
mediation may be the route for you. Mediation is an option for couples who are willing
to come to an agreement, and it includes an unbiased third party member
who will lead the mediation discussion. Here you will still want to have
an attorney representing you individually because even though it is a
peaceful divorce, there are still many legal details involved and we will
help you with that.
For other couples, perhaps you are not only marriage partners, but business
partners as well? This can make things a little more difficult, which
is why we specifically are trained to help in matters of
complex divorces. High net worth divorces can add extra tension to an already stressed
out couple, which is why if you hire our firm to represent you, we will
help you work through these many specific details in order to help you
receive the portion that is rightfully yours. When dealing with a business,
you want to make sure that you not only receive what is rightfully yours,
but also to have someone looking out that you are not taken for granted
fraudulently in the process.
Unfortunately, when dealing with family matters, there are some individuals
who are placed in far from ideal situations, and this includes domestic
violence. Victims of
domestic violence are often hesitant to come forward in fear that their lives or the lives
of their children will be placed at risk. If this is the case for you,
contacting a family and divorce attorney with experience in this specific
field is essential. This is a delicate time, and there may perhaps even
be lives at risk. Whatever the severity, know that you are not alone,
and our firm wants to fight for you.
While the majority of divorces are somewhat peaceful, there are some in
which couples are unable to come to an agreement no matter what.
Contested divorces are not unheard of, and if this is the case for you, hiring an attorney
to fight for your needs is crucial. When dealing with this situation it
is possible that you and your spouse are fighting over who will get the
children, how much money will one of you pay in child support, or even
who will keep the house. Going through a divorce is stressful as it is,
and being unable to make an agreement can be even more challenging. Whether
we are able to finally reach an agreement, or we need to take the case
to court in order to fight for what you deserve, our firm is prepared
to help you.
At The Law Offices of Estrada & Estrada, we understand how difficult
this time of divorce is, which is why our team is committed to doing whatever
is necessary to help you fight for what is best for you and your children.
