Dallas Divorce Lawyers for Other Lawyers

Family Law Attorneys Protecting the Rights of Legal Professionals Throughout the Texas Divorce Process

If you are a lawyer, you absolutely understand the importance of quality legal advice. Depending on your chosen area of practice, you may also have some familiarity with the divorce laws in the great state of Texas. You know that divorcing spouses are required to divide their community property equitably. You might know that spouses who earn less might be eligible to receive alimony or spousal maintenance. Regardless of the details, you surely know that achieving a favorable result is as much about executing an effective strategy as it is about knowing the law.

At Clark Law Group in Dallas, TX, we bring decades of experience to representing Texas lawyers in divorce and divorce-related cases. Our practice is highly experienced, representing high-net-worth spouses, including physicians, lawyers, and other business owners and professionals. As a result, we are intimately familiar with the unique issues involved with partnership, division of sizable retirement and securities accounts, and other high-value assets, and we are able to effectively and efficiently represent our clients as they continue to devote the majority of their time and attention to their practices.

Protecting Your Assets and Income in Your Divorce

As a high-net-worth individual, you have a great deal to protect in your divorce. Unfortunately, unless you have a prenuptial agreement, you might not be able to protect everything. Texas is one of the few remaining states that adheres to a "community property" law that gives both divorcing spouses equal claim to the property that was accumulated during the marriage. In practice, Texas courts are required to divide a couple's community property in a manner that is just and fair. Similarly, the alimony law in Texas requires the consideration of both spouses' standard of living, among other factors. While this law does not require an equal split of post-divorce income, it does generally require high-earning lawyers and other professionals to provide financial support to their former spouses.

Protecting Your Practice or Partnership Interest

If you own your own legal practice, or if you are a partner in a large or mid-size firm, your ownership interest in your practice could be on the table in your divorce as a component of your community estate. For divorce purposes, business ownership interests are treated similarly to other types of property. Even if you owned your practice or were elevated to partner prior to your marriage, it is still possible that at least a portion of your interest could be subject to division in your divorce. Again, we have specific experience in this area, and we can work with you to protect your ownership interest and the autonomy of your practice to the fullest extent possible.

Preserving Your Relationship with Your Children

Finally, if you have minor children, preserving your relationship with your children can present some unique challenges as well. Texas law places mothers and fathers on an equal playing field with regard to child custody—or "conservatorship," but your spouse may try to use the fact that you work long hours against you. We are familiar with these kinds of arguments, and we have had significant success securing our clients' desired parenting time rights. We are ready to put our experience to work for you.
