After getting married, whether it has been many years or only a few months, many couples find that they no longer want to be together, for a variety of reasons. In such a situation, a couple may believe that the best route is to pursue divorce. Divorce offers a couple the ability to separate their lives as best as possible and move on. However, depending on a person’s exact situation or location, there are often special factors that need to be considered. As such, there are a variety of different types of divorce that a person can seek help with, including:

  • Divorce for Men
  • Divorce for Women
  • Military Divorce
  • Contested / Uncontested Divorce
  • Mediated Divorce
  • Collaborative Divorce
  • Simplified Divorce

Regardless of what type of divorce a person chooses to file for, there are often a number of other concerns that are involved and for which an Austin divorce attorney can advise a person. Certain common factors that are often considered during divorce include child custody, child support, alimony, and division of property and/or debts. Of particular concern for those couples that have children are child custody, in which it is determined who will have both legal and physical custody of the children, and child support, which is the financial support that one parent pays if it is deemed the other parent needs financial help in raising and supporting the children.

Often, going through a divorce can be a lengthy, resource draining, and emotional process that many people feel overwhelmed by. Fortunately, a legal professional can help you understand your options, the complexities of the legal process, and help a person take the necessary steps to successfully completing a divorce. Choosing which type of divorce to file for can dramatically affect your situation and make things more or less complicated; thus, consulting with a legal professional can be invaluable.
