Attorney Specializing in Divorce and all Family Law Cases
Complex Division of Property
Divorce involves more than dissolving the marriage. This is the time child custody, access and possession, and child support is determined. Division of all property including real estate, motor vehicles, financial accounts, retirement, cypto, and furniture as well as all assets are divided.
Divorce is quite sophisticated now compared to many years ago. It is not recommended that you represent yourself or be a “pro se” litigant. You have too much to lose especially when there are children and property involved. We will try to help you make decisions that will be consistent with your financial situation as well as what goals you have in mind.
When there h as been family violence, the Civil District Courts have the power to grant what is referred to as a “Protective Order” against the offender. Family violence can affect the conservatorship issues, visitation and acces and division of property. If there is a conviction or deferred adjudication in the Criminal Courts that can empower the Civil Courts to grant post divorce spousal payments referred to as maintenance against the offender.
Before a minor child can be adopted the parental rights of one or or both biological parents must be terminated first.
Child custody is now referred to in the State of Texas as “conservatorship”. There are three major types of conservatorships: Sole Managing Conservator, Joint Managing Conservators and Possessory Conservators. Each has distinct obligations and powers.
Complex Division of Property
Texas is a community property state. There are two types of property: Separate and Community. The Court does not have the power to divide separate property but there can be claims for reimbursement when one marital estate has benefitd the other. Again there are many spophisticated and legal theories used to divide property. Remember is doesnt matter in whose name the property was acquired it can still be considered community property, Also property means everything not just real estate, it can be bank accounts, retirements, crypto, motor vehicles, home furnishings, just about any type of asset is divided in a divorce.
When the litigants do not comply with the Courts Order they can be Ordered to comply and be subject to Civil Contempt, Jailed and or fined or both for not complying.

“Mr. Fagin was very helpful in my divorce case. He was more than willing to help and go the extra mile for my children and I. His assistance made the case run smooth and I am very fortunate I had him on my side. As a retired U.S Air Force veteran punctality and organization are very important attributes i look for when hiring someone and Mr. Fagin excelled in both of those traits.”

Mr. Fagin went above and beyond what I could have ever expected! Words can not express what Mr. Fagin has done for my family. My family is finally back together and justice has been served.”
