Divorce is the formal dissolution of a marriage that cancels the legal duties, responsibilities, and relationships between the parties. It necessarily involves an accompanying division of property and parenting arrangements for the children. These processes are highly regulated and require a court decree that grants the divorce, approves the property settlement, and confirms custody arrangements based on the best interest of the children and the legislative requirements in the Family Code.
Child custody issues are always decided based on what is in the best interests of the child. Almost without exception, the non-custodial parent is granted generous visitation rights since it is usually best for children to maintain healthy relationships with both parents.
Property division is one of the most complex issues in Texas divorce proceedings. Factors that influence the property settlement include age, health, earning capacity, fault in the marriage, future needs of children, length of the marriage, and the conduct of the parties. Mr. McNaught works with clients to determine the value of the marital estate and to fairly divide marital property. He works with his clients to ensure that they are treated fairly.
