Divorce can be a very difficult and complicated transition that involves a specific legal process. Additionally, the terms of your final divorce order will significantly affect your future in many ways.

Hoppes Family Law is ready to assist with divorce cases in Hurst and the surrounding areas.
Texas sets out several requirements for divorce cases, including the resolution of specific legal issues. We regularly handle every relevant issue in each divorce case, including the following.
The Division of Property
One of the fundamental components of divorce involves the division of property and assets. Texas is a community property state, which means that the property that you and your spouse acquired together as a married couple (regardless of who made the purchase or whose name is attached to the purchase) is community property that must be divided in a just and right manner.
Texas also recognizes separate property which is property owned by a spouse prior to marriage and any property acquired by a spouse by gift or inheritance. Tracing and proving separate property can be a very difficult task. Hoppes Family Law has decades of experience to help you protect your separate property as well as receive your just and right portion of the community estate.
The attorneys at Hoppes Family Law take a tough, no-nonsense approach to both litigation and negotiation. We also aim to “shoot straight” with our client’s about the law and their expectations. Spousal support in Texas is very restrictive. Eligibility requirements must be met, and additionally certain facts must be present. We at Hoppes Family Law will review all of the facts specific to your situation and give you honest, straightforward advice about spousal support for you.
Custody and Child Support
Child-related issues matters are always a top concern for divorcing parents. Child custody is called conservatorship in Texas. Conservatorship includes various important rights and duties, including but not limited to the right to determine the primary residence of the child, the right to make educational and medical decisions for the child. Conservatorship also includes the parents’ right to have physical possession of, and access to, the child. The Court must order child support pursuant to the guidelines set forth in the Texas Family Code.
