The divorce process sparks many different emotions. You may feel angry, worried, upset or even relieved. No matter what emotion you may be feeling, at Cooke Law Firm, P.C., we will personally cater to your needs.

Cooke Law Firm, P.C., is located in Cleburne, Texas, and provides assistance for individuals and families throughout Texas in the area of family law. We assist clients with a wide range of needs in family law, including asset protection, property division, custody and child support.

Community Property in Texas

Texas is a community property state, meaning that all assets accumulated during the marriage are considered the joint property of both spouses. However, if one spouse can prove fault in the marriage, then he or she may receive more than 50 percent of the community estate. Grounds for fault may include:

  • Adultery
  • Family Violence
  • Excessive Use of Alcohol or Drugs
  • Felony Convictions or Prison Time

Often, one spouse will try to hide community assets. Attorney Christopher Cooke's vast experience in evaluating financial records will stop this behavior and maximize your recovery.

Common Law Marriage

In the state of Texas, the common law marriage rules are unique. If you file joint tax returns or tell others that you are married, then you are considered married by a common law marriage. At our firm, we provide the guidance you need to ensure that you are able to provide for you and your family after the dissolution of a common law marriage.
