Experienced Divorce, Adoption and Child Custody Law Firm.


When a couple no longer wishes to be married, the next step is usually to begin the divorce process. In Texas, there are two available options for divorce: no-fault and fault-based. Either process begins with the filing of an original divorce petition, usually in the county where that spouse lives.

A no-fault divorce does not require proving the other party did something wrong. A fault-based proceeding does require that certain grounds for the divorce be presented, such as:

  • A felony conviction with at least one year’s imprisonment.
  • Adultery.
  • Abandonment for at least one year.
  • Confinement to a mental hospital due to insanity.
  • Not living together for at least a 3-year period of time.
  • Some form of cruelty.

Because Texas is a community property state, all property must be listed and division of that property determined according to the community property guidelines. This also includes the division of debt that exists at the time of the divorce.

If there are minor children involved, decisions must be made about child custody that are in the best interests of the child or children involved. It is preferable for the parents to reach an agreement regarding any arrangements. If that cannot be done, then the court will step in to make the necessary child custody arrangements. Support of the minor children must also be determined at this time.

Handling all of this in a proper and timely fashion is not usually handled by the involved divorcing partners. The best choice for both parties is to individually seek the services of an experienced divorce lawyer to handle all of the details and protect the best interest of that spouse.

Mrs. Foreman and Diane are amazing at what they do. They are the reason my niece and nephew are SAFE and HAPPY now. There’s not enough thank you for what they did for my brother. I thought it was impossible for my brother to get full custody of his children but Jane and Diane made it happen.

Jana Foreman has done the absolute most in making our family whole. My husband struggled for years to get custody of his daughter and Jana was able to make it happen. She was very open and straightforward with us throughout the whole process, even when we were feeling discouraged. She even helped us with the adoption of our son immediately after getting custody of my stepdaughter. Jana and Diane both are the most wonderful people to work with and we couldn’t be happier to know them. Thank you so much for all you’ve done for us!!!
