Divorce can be one of the most, difficult, devastating, confusing, and challenging things that you will ever encounter. Despite all the ways it can help your family in the long run, it is a tough process.
The experienced Austin divorce attorneys at Evans Family Law Group understand what you are going through. Our founding attorney, James W. Evans, practices law by the philosophy of, “just because can do it doesn’t necessarily mean you should do it”.
If possible for you and your spouse, consider an uncontested divorce. In what we call an “Agreed Divorce” (a term we coined), an uncontested divorce builds on the goodwill of two people willing to work together to avoid unnecessary conflict, most often regarding child custody and property division. An uncontested divorce can be an amicable and transparent process from the start, and is a great way to minimize collateral damage. Find out more about Agreed Divorces.
Of course, in some cases an uncontested divorce just isn’t possible, either because of one’s spouse or for complicated reasons. If that is your situation, you will need a divorce attorney who is experienced in handled contested divorces where everything is fought over: custody, custody agreements, child visitation, spousal maintenance, assets of all kinds, even the terms of a prenup or postnup, and more.
Here are the types of divorce situations we deal with most often:
“…Straightforward, Available, Effective, and CompassionateJimmy represented in me a complicated divorce with difficult custody challenges, safety/protective issues and during a time of harsh financial struggles for me and my kids. Jimmy and his team were very responsive, available, and helpful during every aspect of this stressful time. Jimmy helped me focus on what was really important and helped keep me off the emotional roller coaster of anxiety, misinformation, and the fear from scary threats from my ex-husband and his council.”
“I am so grateful that a close friend recommend Jimmy for my divorce. Jimmy treated me like a real person–not like a client getting billed (as other attorneys had done in the past). In fact, Jimmy was always careful with how much money I was spending. He provided solid, expert advice. Not to mention, he is very respected in the community, which helped a lot in communicating with my ex’s attorney. I highly recommend Jimmy.”
“A breath of fresh air from any other attorney I’ve dealt with in the past. Extremely responsive, sharp and thorough. I love that he works with his wife; it shows his commitment to family, which is what I find the most important thing in my life. I would strongly recommend this firm.”
Some things must be protected at all costs. At the top of that list are children. Divorce proceedings are hard enough on adults, without kids in the picture. If you have children, not only do you need to do what is long-term best for them, but you also need to minimize the harm and risk to them in the short-term. It is a difficult balance. If you work with divorce attorneys who are not experienced in handling difficult child custody cases here in Texas, then that is a balance you are unlikely to achieve.
As experienced child custody attorneys and as parents ourselves, we understand the challenges both in legal and in terms of family wellness. We can help with the full range of child custody cases, including those that involve:

“Jimmy has an encyclopedic knowledge of the law based, extensive experience with a wide range of cases, and as a result is someone I could completely trust to know what he was doing. He was always willing to explain why certain issues that were under dispute were/were not likely to be upheld by a judge and gave me a very honest sense of what to expect before a judge, with respect to anything I asked him. He took the time to talk to me and answer questions, and was an ethical advocate who was clearly seeking the best outcome for the children. Rarely do I post reviews, but I chose him based on ones I read by people equally unfamiliar and scared by family law, divorce, and custody as I was; and he was a gem in guiding us through a difficult time. I’m so grateful to have found him, and recommend him as one of the most ethical and professional people I’ve ever worked with.”
