A Brief Look at How a Divorce Works
Our Denton divorce lawyers obviously can’t give you an in-depth look into this subject in this small space. However, we can at least give you a general idea of what to expect during different parts of your case. When you contact Christman Ramsey Foster PC, we will first set up a free consultation that will last 30 minutes. One of our divorce lawyers in Denton, TX, will listen to the details of your case and then give you a brief synopsis of some of what to expect.
For example, once you or your spouse has filed a petition for divorce, there will first be what’s known as a “temporary divorce hearing.” This typically involves a judge telling the parties what they must do – and what they must not – during the time the case is pending.
Next, divorce lawyers in Denton, TX, representing both parties engage in “discovery.” This is where the attorneys and their clients gather all evidence and all other necessary information that will be needed to make their case as strong as possible.
The next step will likely be mediation. The spouses and their attorneys will begin to negotiate disagreements, such as who gets primary custody of the children. In most cases, each spouse and attorney will be in a separate room. The lawyers speak with their clients, talk to the mediator, and then speak with them again. The purpose is to find a solution both parties can accept and keep the divorce out of a court of law.
This just scratches the surface of the divorce process. You can learn more by contacting the Denton divorce lawyers with Christman Ramsey Foster, PC, online or call 972.445.9907.
