Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a divorce cost?
Estimating total costs is almost impossible, but generally, agreement between the parties will keep the costs down. When divorcing spouses disagree on issues, the cost will always increase. This doesn’t mean that you must “fold” on your objectives – rather, it’s best to listen to your attorney’s advice and consider it carefully.
How much does a guardianship cost?
Guardianships are either uncontested or hotly contested. Estimating the total cost of litigation is almost impossible. Whenever there is disagreement or prolonged negotiations, the legal costs will always increase.
Does my probate case always require a hearing?
Usually, probate cases will require at least one hearing, but hearings are not needed for all cases. Your case may qualify for a small estate affidavit or affidavit of heirship.
What factors are considered in determining a child’s “best interest?”
There is no statutory requirement other than the requirement for the court to consider the preference of a child over the age of 12. Fam. Code Sec. 153.009. The other factors are detailed in Holly v. Adams, 544 S.W.2d 367 (Tex. 1976).
