Dallas Divorce Lawyer Explains Alternative Options to Divorce

Legal separation isn't an option in Texas. Dallas divorce attorney Anita Savage explains the legal protections available for you to create agreements regarding the division, access, and use of your property, as well as the parenting of your children. When it comes to dividing property and assets, there are two tools for this: a partition and exchange agreement, or a postnuptial agreement. If children are involved, you can create legal agreements that are binding and that a court will enforce instead. This is essentially a parenting plan very similar to what you would have during a divorce. Within this agreement, it would spell out what parenting time you are going to have with your children, what your financial obligations are, and how decisions about your children are going to be made.
