Divorce

Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich represents clients in divorces in Tarrant County, Dallas County and surrounding counties. Clients range in financial assets, family size, custody needs, property types and desires. Some clients have complicated divorces while others have extremely simple divorces. These divorces are all different and have to be treated differently. Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich considers each divorce unique. He crafts solution based upon the unique needs of his client and the divorce. However, most divorces can be loosely categorized into two types: uncontested divorces and contested divorces.

Fort Worth Divorce Lawyer for Uncontested Divorces

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which the parties have agreed to all the major terms of the divorce, particularly dealing with children and property. Spouses who have this kind of agreed divorce generally do not need an attorney to make the divorce more complicated but to convert the agreement into legal documents and help them through the legal process to get divorced. Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich helps clients in uncontested divorces with these needs. The Kielich Law Firm bills uncontested divorce on a flat fee basis. Clients pay one amount rather than an hourly rate or a monthly bill.

Fort Worth Divorce Lawyer for Contested Divorces

Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich also represents clients in contested divorces. Beyond the small number of truly uncontested divorces lies all other divorces. These divorces may be lumped together as contested divorces merely as a description of divorces that are not already completely agreed. They range from divorces where an agreement is almost complete to divorces in which the spouses are bitterly opposed on every issue.

It’s unfair to think of this wide range of divorces as similar in any way. These are divorces that require careful examination of the issues and needs of both parties to figure out how to produce a workable divorce solution. Sometimes these divorces can be resolved by thoughtful negotiation while others are so conflicted that there is no choice but to take the divorce to a trial. Treating one like the other is usually just a good way to waste time and resources without accomplishing anything useful for you. This is why it is so important to treat each divorce as a unique situation.

Divorce is often only the beginning of the judicial system’s involvement in the family relationships between members of the family. After the divorce there is often property to be divided and additional court orders or court filings may be necessary to finalize the property division in the divorce. If children are involved in the divorce then the divorced spouses will continue a co-parenting relationship over the children that is governed by the conservatorship orders within the divorce decree. The conservatorship orders instruct the parents on possession schedules, parental rights and required child support. These orders may be modified or enforced through the courts in the future in whole or in part as necessary for the children. These modifications and enforcement actions may continue for years to come.

Divorces are not the only ways the family law system becomes part of a family relationship. Courts order conservatorship and child support for children who were not born in a marriage but the parents require court orders to govern the co-parenting relationship anyway. These types of orders in a suit affecting the parent-child relationship (SAPCR) will include the same types of orders involving the children as a divorce decree but without dividing any property of the parents or dissolving a marriage.

Modifications of Divorce and Custody Orders

Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich and The Kielich Law Firm helps clients with modifications of divorce and custody orders. Often custody orders in divorces and other family law matters stop being the best situation for a family. This may occur due to job changes, marriages, relocation, changes in the lifestyle of the children and the relationships involved. When this occurs, it may become necessary to modify the orders to reflect the new situation. This may be a modification of possession schedules, parental rights, child support, or a combination of several issues.

Modifications are often more difficult than getting to the original order. For that reason, it is often necessary to work with an experienced Fort Worth divorce lawyer to litigate modifications and craft solutions that mends the family situation. Learn more about how Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich can help you.

Fort Worth Divorce and Collaborative Law

A somewhat new approach to divorce is collaborative law in which both spouses agree to follow a specific negotiation process rather than going to court to fight over issues or asking the court to intervene over minor issues along the way.

It is a good option when the spouses can set aside the emotional aspects of the divorce and negotiate but want professional assistance to evaluate the property and custody rights to ensure the agreement is fair.

Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich understands the collaborative law process and can work with you to reach a collaborative agreement.

Fort Worth Divorce Lawyer for Custody and Possession Disputes

Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich is experienced with custody disputes both in and out of divorces. Conflicts over custody and possession issues are common in divorces and suits involving child support. These includes issues involving conservatorship, possession and visitation schedules, parental rights, grandparent access and related parent-child and co-parenting issues. These conflicts are often emotional and difficult to deal with for many reasons. These conflicts are resolved either by agreement between the parties or through the broad discretion of the judge so it is important that you work with a Fort Worth divorce lawyer capable at negotiating and knows the local judges.

Understanding the local judges is a key part of a successful custody solution. Although Dallas and Fort Worth are one large metro area, the family law courts in Tarrant County and Dallas County operate differently. What a Fort Worth family law judge may accept in a divorce might be significantly different from a Dallas family law judge. Many divorce lawyers practice on one side or the other. Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich is in Bedford and practices frequently in both counties.

Child Support Obligations

Child support will be part of the order almost every time a court issues an order involving custodial rights.

It is often a source of conflict between parents in a divorce or other suit involving custodial rights. Getting on the wrong side of a child support order can be financially dangerous whether it is because you receive too little child support for what you could receive under the Texas Family Code or because you are paying far more than what your income supports. It is important to fight for a fair child support obligation in your divorce or custody case no matter whether you will pay or receive child support. Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich understands the importance of child support. It can play a powerful role in the post-divorce or post-custody suit parental relationship. Learn more about how Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich can help you.

Mediation in Divorces, Modifications and other Family Law Situations

Mediation is typically required in most family law proceedings before you can appear in court for a trial or other contested hearing. Often mediation is a better way to resolve the issues in a divorce or custody suit. You know more about your situation that the judge ever will which puts you in a better position to find a resolution that works for everybody involved. However, it is easy for mediation to result in a poor outcome when one or both parties do not understand their rights, the value of assets and debts involved in a divorce and the future likelihood of problems. This is where having a Fort Worth divorce lawyer on your side can add value to your mediation. Learn more about how Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich can help you.

Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich represents clients in mediation as part of a larger divorce or other family law litigation.

Mediation can be effective to break the logjam in a case when the parties have motivation to reach a useful solution.

Property Divisions in Dallas and Fort Worth Divorce

In a divorce the two main issues the parties will fight over are custody and property division. Property division is about more than who gets the kitchen appliances or the power tools. There are important financial issues to consider such as liability for debts of the parties, how to fairly divide major assets like your house and cars, how retirement benefits and other financial assets divide, the tax liabilities involved with those assets and so forth.

It is easy to agree to a property division that seems fair but a few years down the road explodes. Even a middle class marriage with a house, cars and a little money can divide into a financial disaster. A Fort Worth divorce lawyer with expertise with financial assets can go a long way towards preventing financial problems later.

Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich has experience with valuing and understanding financial assets, debts and financial settlements. He focuses on reaching a just property division with the other spouse (and his or her divorce lawyer); while crafting a property division that best allows his client to reach financial stability after divorce. Divorce is a leading cause of financial despair and bankruptcy. A viable property division plan can help avoid those negative consequences. When hiring a Fort Worth divorce lawyer, consider whether he has the expertise to handle your property division. Learn more about how Fort Worth divorce lawyer Adam Kielich can help you.
