Divorce

Focused on your future

Deciding to divorce is one of most difficult things you can do in life. And once you take this first step, there are many paths you can follow. We’re here to show you the way.

Perhaps it’s you or your spouse that wants a divorce. Or you have made this big decision together. Whether you hope to work toward an amicable divorce or will need to litigate, a meeting with an experienced family law attorney is vital to figure out what happens next.

How our divorce lawyers can help

At GoransonBain Ausley, we understand that, regardless of whether you and your spouse intend to cooperate with each other, emotions will be running high. We’re also aware of the pitfalls and distractions these emotions can cause – keeping you from making sound financial decisions or best-interest decisions for your children.

This is why we’re committed to providing all our clients with thorough legal advice, delivered with honesty and compassion. Using the depth and breadth of our experience, we navigate you through the divorce process to help you achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family. We focus on your future financial stability and help you identify your goals – then recommend an efficient, effective strategy to help you meet them.

Identifying your individual concerns

With our 40 years of experience serving Austin families, we know that every divorce is as unique as the people involved. We make sure you know all the options that are available to you and help you understand the pros and cons of those options.

Working as a team, our goal is to guide you and your family to find the best way forward. When planning a strategy, we’ll consult with you about the following issues and how they apply to your circumstances:

  • Parenting plan – we’re experienced in finding solutions that work around complicated schedules and requirements. We can also make sure your plan includes provisions unique to your family, whether that means private school tuition, college savings, non-standard holidays etc.
  • Asset characterization and valuation – we’ll help you identify what counts as community property that must be divided in the divorce, and identify and value any assets that you own separately.
  • Property division – we’ll determine your current and future financial goals and how to meet them through a fair and equitable division of the marital estate, as well as protect what’s important to you.
