Our Philosophy: Make Divorce as Civil as Possible
James W. Evans, lead attorney at our firm, stands by the central philosophy that, “just because you are able to do it, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should.” Not all cases should be litigated through the court system. We don’t believe in costly litigation, simply because the option is available. There are many more affordable and effective alternative options to resolve your case. We explain those alternatives on our mediation and collaborative law pages. We understand the process, and we know that you need closure to move on with your life.

Contested divorce can get ugly in some circumstances. At minimum, it’s often a long, drawn-out and unpleasant battle. You can be assisted throughout that process with thoughtful guidance by one of our firm’s experienced Texas divorce attorneys. We will work with you closely until and amicable agreement is reached. A contested divorce can refer to a couple of different scenarios.
- One party to the proceeding does not believe there are sufficient grounds for a divorce. In this scenario, one party or the other does not want the divorce. A contested divorce will require the services of a competent attorney. After the petition for dissolution of marriage has been filed, either party can request a court hearing to dispute or formalize the grounds for divorce.
- One or both parties do not agree to the terms of the divorce. In this scenario, both parties have agreed the proceedings should take place, but they believe the terms are unacceptable. Disputes may include alimony, property ownership, child custody, joint business ventures, or other disagreements. This scenario is the most common type of contested divorce.
Any type of contested divorce proceedings can take months, if not years, to resolve. You should never attempt to represent yourself in these types of proceedings. A knowledgeable lawyer from Evans Law Group has years of experience in representing both petitioners and respondents in these types of cases. We will do our utmost best to seek an outcome that fully satisfies the needs of our client while reducing the stress and burden that comes along with a contested cause of action.

Review from Jenni F.
“Jimmy Evans is smart, intuitive, and creative. 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.”
