  • How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Family Lawyer in Denton?

    It depends. No two cases are alike and costs for hiring a family law attorney can vary widely. While some uncontested cases can be efficiently and cost-effectively handled, others involving complexities such as very large estates or complicated financial holdings can take longer. When parties to a divorce or other family law matters are immersed in heated disputes that require them to litigate in court, engage in protracted hearings, or navigate complex discovery, costs can also increase.

    At Coker, Robb & Cannon, Family Lawyers, we’re sensitive to the financial interests of our clients and work closely with them to outline an understanding of how legal fees work and what they can expect in their given matter. We also discuss how we leverage our experience to promote efficiency in their cases, which can save time, money, and frustration, and how they can play a role in promoting cost-effectiveness as well.

    The best way to discuss costs, fees, and how you can help control overall expenses in your matter is to have it reviewed personally by a member of our team. During a consultation, we’ll be able to help you better gauge legal fees based on your unique case.

  • Can I Represent Myself in a Family Law Case in Denton?

    Yes, you can represent yourself in a family law case in Denton County, a process known as appearing "pro se."

    However, it's essential to understand that family law can be complex, and representing yourself comes with the responsibility of understanding and following the same rules as an attorney. This includes filing the correct legal documents, abiding by court procedures, and potentially presenting your case in court. You’ll also need to understand how Texas divorce laws apply to your case, and how to best pursue a resolution in accordance with those laws. If you're unsure about these issues, you may want to consider at least consulting with a lawyer.

  • Where Do I File Family Law Petitions in Denton, TX?

    Family law petitions in Denton should be filed with the Denton County District Clerk. The Denton County Courts Building is located at 1450 E. McKinney Street, Denton, TX 76209. It's recommended that you check the county's official website or call the District Clerk's office for the latest information on filing procedures, hours of operation, and any other requirements.

    If you choose to work with our firm during your family law case, we can ensure that all petitions and legal work are filed in the appropriate venue and by any stated deadlines.

  • What Are the Typical Court Filing Fees Associated With Family Law Cases in Denton?

    Filing fees in Denton County can vary depending on the type of family law case. For instance, a standard divorce filing might have a different fee compared to a custody case. You can find out the exact fee structure from the Denton County District Clerk's Office, where you can receive the most up-to-date fee schedule, or by bringing your questions to our team. Generally, expect to pay a few hundred dollars to file a petition.

  • What Is the General Timeline for a Family Law Case in Denton?

    The timeline for a family law case in Denton, TX can vary greatly depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, the court's schedule, and whether the case goes to trial. Typically, an uncontested case might be resolved in a few months, while a contested case could take a year or more. It's best to prepare for a potentially lengthy process and seek legal advice to manage expectations.

  • How Can I Find a Lawyer Who Specializes in Family Law in Denton?

    You have many options when it comes to finding a lawyer, but finding a qualified, experienced, and reputable one isn’t so easy. The best way to assess any potential legal counsel is to look carefully at their history, experience, credentialing, and reputation in both the legal and local community.

Our team of highly qualified paralegals also includes Holly Keen and Ashely Leverett, who are Board Certified as Family Law Paralegals by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

  • I’m Considering Mediation For My Family Law Case in Denton. How Does it Work?

    Mediation is a voluntary process where both parties try to resolve their disputes with the help of a neutral third-party mediator. In Denton County, mediation can be court-ordered or chosen independently by the parties.

    The mediation process typically involves several sessions where both parties and the mediator meet to discuss and negotiate the terms of the agreement. Mediators do not make decisions like judges but facilitate communication and guide the parties toward a mutually acceptable solution. If an agreement is reached, it can be formalized into a binding agreement or order. Mediation is confidential and can be a less adversarial and more cost-effective alternative to going to court.
