After an initial consultation, if an individual decides to proceed with a Texas divorce action, Attorneys Christopher C. and Patricia Cooke can represent that individual throughout the process. Common areas that Cooke Law Firm, P.C. will offer advice in beginning a divorce revolve around issues of the grounds for a divorce in Texas, various residency requirements, the necessity of a temporary restraining order or protective order, relevant required waiting periods, and issues with the filing of the Texas divorce petition.

Furthermore, if retained, Cooke Law Firm, P.C. will represent you through all negotiations and assist in hammering out a tailored divorce settlement that meets your individual needs. However, when a divorce settlement cannot be reached, Attorneys Christopher C. and Patricia Stanley have the skill and dedication to prepare your case and effectively represent you before the divorce court.

Texas Divorce
Many issues can materialize in the course of a divorce in Texas. At Cooke Law Firm, P.C. in Cleburne, Texas, Attorneys Christopher C. and Patricia L. Cooke can help resolve Texas divorce issues such as division of community property holdings, spousal support, child custody and child support. The Cookes will strive to effectively move your case toward resolution – by settlement or trial.

At Cooke Law Firm, P.C. in Cleburne, Texas you can expect solid representation both in the mediation room and in the courtroom. This is important because many judges will require mediation to take place prior to any trial. This can be quite beneficial to many individuals and we often recommend mediation as an avenue for reaching agreements involving child custody, support, marital property division and other central issues.

Mediation Often Has More Benefits Than Litigation

  1. The divorcing couple can reach creative agreements that sometimes the court cannot employ;
  2. The parties to the suit maintain control over the outcome (it is often comforting that strangers are not deciding your domestic affairs); and
  3. Private family matters can remain private and not become part of the public record.

However, while the majority of Texas divorce cases are resolved through negotiation at mediation, courtroom litigation and trial are sometimes a necessity. If that is the case, Christopher C. and Patricia L. Cooke are comfortable in the courtroom and will aggressively represent your interests in Texas family law court.
