The dissolution of a marriage can be a frustrating and lengthy process: often unforeseen problems can arise. Employing the expert legal services of Ball Morse Lowe, PLLC. Meeting with a family law attorney is the first step in understanding the intricate process and gaining a fresh start.
Our law firm handles all aspects of divorce, including:
Complex divorces are those in which couples might not agree upon one or more problems. Uncontested divorces can become contested if the parties disagree on a few items. Complex divorces may include high-asset couples and business owners.
Military divorces involve many legal issues that civilians often do not contend with. The Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act ("USFSPA") and Texas law will determine how military pensions and benefits are divided. We are here to help serve those who have served.
Even in the event of an uncontested divorce, it's sensible to seek the counsel of a Texas divorce lawyer to advise you. Legal representation will make certain you and your partner have considered every option and all rights are protected.
In some circumstances, it might be advisable or necessary to attend mediation before going to trial within an issue. We work with accredited mediators who will help you solve your problems, avoid trial and keep pricing minimal.
In some instances, legal separation might be an option. But if you or your partner is considering divorce, there are steps you can take to prepare for that choice while consulting with an attorney.
Our firm works closely with financial specialists who assist in valuing assets, counsel on tax consequences, and divide marital debt.

Collaborative law is a way to amicably resolve divorce issues, including property division, custody, and alimony, without the public scrutiny of a case litigated in court. In a collaborative law divorce, the parties utilize specially trained attorneys and neutral experts to work through the various issues in their case. All parties involved, including attorneys, must submit to certain rules to insure everyone is incentivized to act in good faith and see the case resolved without going to court.
Collaborative law is a great option for parties wishing to maintain confidentiality if the parties are able to communicate with one another civilly post separation. If you are interested in more information on a collaborative divorce, please contact us today.
A premarital agreement is often referred to as a “prenup” or prenuptial agreement and is a contract which is entered into prior to the marriage.
