Divorce Litigation—When Court Is The Best Option

Resolving divorce and child custody disputes in the courtroom is seldom the first choice when you are going through family problems. But it is sometimes the only choice. When that is the case, the family lawyers of Goranson Bain Ausley draw on their deep courtroom experience to pursue litigation with diligence and skill.

The fact is, there are reasons to litigate. Highly contentious divorces or custody disputes, physical or mental abuse, or an intractable spouse may make court intervention necessary. Some clients may simply prefer to go to trial. GBA lawyers do not rush to court, however. They do everything possible to negotiate a settlement. But when all other options have been exhausted, they will tenaciously litigate to protect the interests of you and your children.

The likelihood is that you will not need to go to a final trial—about 95% of Texas divorces ultimately settle out of court. To cover every contingency, GBA offers you the full spectrum of divorce processes—from Flat fee divorce to Collaborative Divorce and mediation to litigation. Whenever feasible, our preference is to pursue a constructive resolution that minimizes disruption to your life. Our priority, always, is to secure the most favorable outcome for you using all the resources at our disposal.

What is Divorce Litigation?

When divorcing couples cannot reach a final agreement by other means, court intervention may be necessary. A litigated divorce presents couples with a solution decided by a judge, who rules on such issues as:

Property Division

Child Support

Child Custody

Spousal Support

Because a judge will be making decisions affecting your family and finances, it is vital that you have an experienced attorney to advocate for you. Trusting their counsel and communicating openly with them will help them build a strong case and create the best opportunity for a positive outcome.
