Divorce is probably one of the most difficult events you will face in your life. Whether the decision to end your marriage was mutual or not, it was almost certainly not an easy one. At May and May, we understand the challenges that accompany divorce: not only legal, but financial, emotional, and social. We will help guide you through the legal process and all that goes with it so that you can emerge into a bright future.
May and May is not just a firm that practices family law; we are a family law firm. We know how important your family is to you, and we are committed to helping you protect your family's interests.
We represent clients in all Texas divorce matters, from the most straightforward and amicable to the most complex and contentious. Although we have handled hundreds of divorce cases in our years in practice, we know that no two cases are the same. Your divorce is as important to us as it is to you, and we give you the same attention we would want to receive.
We recognize that when you are faced with divorce, you have a lot of questions. At May and May, we believe that getting you the answers you need is essential. Knowledge is power, and our goal is to empower you to make the best possible decisions in your divorce. We are partners in this process: we know Texas family law, you know the needs of your family. We will work together to bring about the outcome you need.
Many people are surprised to learn that the vast majority of divorces in Texas don't end in a trial, but in a settlement at some point in the process. Because of this, we recognize the importance of being effective negotiators. We believe it is beneficial to reach settlement whenever possible for a number of reasons.
When you reach settlement, you have control over the terms of your divorce, rather than a judge who doesn't know you making the decisions. Also, trials, though sometimes necessary, can be very expensive. We want to conserve your resources for building a good post-divorce life, not consume them in litigation and attorney fees. Lastly, trials can become very contentious. If you and your spouse have children, you will need to deal with each other for many years to come. To the extent possible, we want to preserve a cordial relationship between you and your ex so that you can work together for the sake of your children.
Although a good settlement has many advantages, we also know that in some situations, a trial is the only way to preserve a client's interests. As experienced litigators, we will not hesitate to try a case if that is what is best for our clients. We are both efficient and thorough in trial preparation, and powerful advocates in the courtroom.
