Types of Divorce Cases We handle

Do you need to find a different law office depending on the type of divorce you need in Denton? Not when you choose Coker, Robb & Cannon, Family Lawyers. We have a highly experienced team of attorneys and support staffwho can work together to handle virtually any divorce case that comes our way. No matter the details of your divorce or why you want to get one, you can depend on us to lead you through it.

Different types of divorce cases we handle in Denton include the following and more:

  • Contested: If the recipient spouse (respondent/defendant) does not agree with the provisions written in the divorce papers made by the petitioner spouse (plaintiff), the divorce becomes contested. Further legal action will be needed to resolve it, which could include mediation or litigation.
  • Uncontested: If both spouses fully approve of the divorce petition when it is originally filed and served, the divorce is uncontested. You should still hire a divorce lawyer for an uncontested divorce because they can look for small details that might need your attention before finalizing the divorce.
  • High net-worth: Denton locals with significant assets or real estate can work with our attorneys to make sense of their high net-worth divorce. We can help you protect your property, including if you own any businesses.
  • Military: We proudly offer our legal services to military service members and their families. Denton has a noticeable population of military spouses and veterans, who we help understand the nuances and unique details of military divorces.

Divorce Challenges in Denton

Denton County follows Texas law for divorce waiting periods. Even if you have an uncontested divorce, you must follow the 60-day waiting period rule. This rule states that after you file your petition for divorce, at least 60 days must pass for it to be finalized. The idea behind the waiting period is that it gives both parties a chance to fully understand what the divorce will entail, how it will change their family dynamic, and more before committing to it.

If your home was acquired during your marriage, it will be considered community property. Most often, divorcing spouses in Denton decide to sell co-owned homes and split any profits (or debts) 50-50.
  • Are There Any Special Considerations for Military Divorces Filed in Denton?
    Military divorces can have complex implications involving military benefits and pensions, as well as troubles if you want to divorce a spouse who has been deployed overseas. Our law firm can help you through any issues that are unique to military divorces, and we thank the brave military service members of Denton who serve our country.
  • What Factors Influence the Amount of Spousal Maintenance in Denton?
    A Denton County family law judge will consider your income, employment capacity or opportunities, overall health, typical and reasonable day-to-day expenses, and more when deciding how to establish spousal maintenance. Each case is unique, though, so it is recommended that you talk to our lawyers to know how spousal maintenance could look for your case.
  • What Are the Tax Implications of Divorce in Denton, TX?
    Divorce in Denton can create or involve several tax implications, such as those related to capital gains tax, retirement accounts that are to be divided as community property, taxable spousal support payments, and so on. Our lawyers can help you better understand how your tax situation could change after divorce. If you have in-depth tax-related matters to handle, we can refer you to trusted tax attorneys in the area, too.
  • Is Mediation a Good Option for Divorces in Denton?
    Mediation could be just what you need to successfully divorce your spouse with as little conflict and headaches as possible. During mediation, a neutral mediator guides the conversation, provides legal knowledge, and encourages cooperation, but does not take sides or make preferences. If your divorce is contested but you have a good relationship with your spouse still, mediation could be recommended before going to trial.
