At Brian Andrade Family Law, we understand that divorce can be one of the most challenging and emotionally taxing experiences in a person’s life. Our team of experienced family law attorneys is dedicated to providing compassionate, knowledgeable, and effective legal representation to clients navigating the complexities of divorce.

Understanding Divorce

Divorce can be a complex and overwhelming process, but understanding the key aspects of divorce can help you make informed decisions about your future.

Property Division:

In Texas, marital property is divided in a manner that is "just and right." This means that the court will divide property in a way that is fair, but not necessarily equal. Our experienced attorneys can help you understand your rights and options regarding property division.

Child Custody and Visitation:

Child custody and visitation arrangements can be some of the most emotional and contentious issues in a divorce. Our attorneys can help you navigate these complex issues and work towards a resolution that is in the best interests of your child.

Child Support:

Child support is a critical aspect of any divorce involving children. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and obligations regarding child support and work towards a fair and reasonable arrangement.

Spousal Support (Alimony):

Spousal support, also known as alimony, is a payment made from one spouse to another after a divorce. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and obligations regarding spousal support and work towards a fair and reasonable arrangement.

The Divorce Process

The divorce process in California typically involves several stages, including:

Filing for Divorce:

One spouse must file a petition for dissolution of marriage with the appropriate court, and the other spouse must be properly served with the divorce papers.

Temporary Orders:

In some cases, temporary orders may be necessary to address urgent issues such as child custody, support, or the use of marital assets while the divorce is pending.


Both parties are required to exchange relevant information and documents related to their assets, debts, income, and expenses. This process helps ensure that all parties have a clear understanding of the financial landscape of the marriage.

Settlement Negotiations:

Many divorce cases are resolved through settlement negotiations, where the parties work to reach agreements on the various issues in their case. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who can help you navigate this process and work towards a fair and reasonable settlement.


If the parties are unable to reach a settlement, the case may proceed to trial, where a judge will make final decisions on the outstanding issues. Our firm is prepared to vigorously represent your interests in court and present a compelling case on your behalf.

How Does the Court 
Address Separate Property?

Presumption of Community Property:

The Texas Family Code presumes all property as community property unless proven otherwise with clear and convincing evidence.

Burden of Proof for Separate Property:

It is the responsibility of the individual claiming separate property to provide evidence supporting their claim.

Complexities in Property Division

The high burden of proof can make property division complex and challenging, requiring thorough legal guidance.
