Austin Divorce Lawyers

During the process of ending a marriage, both spouses typically undergo tremendous emotional strain. The legal process involved in either a divorce or an annulment is complex and includes a wide spectrum of issues, like distribution of property, child custody, spousal support, and child support. Divorce can have profound consequences with the potential for long-lasting effects on a person’s finances and property.

Annulling a Marriage

Texas has statutory provisions for the annulment of a marriage.

If there was some significant fact that one or both parties did not have knowledge of at the time of the marriage, which would have led one party not marry, it is a voidable marriage. One spouse may petition for annulment for any of the following reasons:

“It’s always good to remember that a Court wants to minimize the change that your children undergo as a part of the divorce process, so the status quo of how your household divided up caregiving responsibilities will be the first thing the Court looks to when deciding custody issues.”
