Understanding How Divorce Works in Galveston 

Even if your divorce is amicable, it can still be challenging, both emotionally and legally. At Ramos Law Group, PLLC, we understand the nuances of Texas divorce law. Our legal team is dedicated to guiding you through this difficult time with professionalism and compassionate support. Our focus on family law ensures that your case receives the specialized attention it deserves.

Overview of Divorce Laws in Galveston, Texas 

Before you file for divorce in Galveston, you must familiarize yourself with pertinent Texas laws. Some of the most important things to know are: 

  • There are contested and uncontested divorces. Divorces can be contested, where parties disagree on major issues, or uncontested, where an agreement is reached on all relevant matters. We handle both types of divorce, helping guide you toward an amicable settlement whenever possible. 
  • You must meet residency requirements. To file for divorce in Texas, one spouse must have lived in Texas for at least six months and in the county where the divorce is filed for at least 90 days.
  • You can file a fault-based no-fault divorce. While Texas allows for fault-based divorces, most are granted on a no-fault basis due to ‘insupportability,’ which refers to irreconcilable differences.
  • Texas is a community property state. Typically, all property acquired during the marriage is considered community property and is subject to division upon divorce.
  • Texas focuses on the best interests of the child. Texas law prioritizes your child’s best interests when deciding custody and visitation. Courts consider several factors, including each parent’s relationship with the child and ability to provide care.

A Galveston divorce attorney at Ramos Law Group, PLLC, will explain all applicable Texas divorce laws and how each impacts your case.

  • Discovery—This is the divorce litigation phase where each side gathers information and evidence crucial to the case.
  • Mediation—This alternative dispute resolution process encourages amicable settlements through facilitation with a neutral third-party mediator. 
  • Trial—If your case is not resolved beforehand, you’ll need to present your case in court and have the judge decide all outstanding issues and render judgment. 

Not every divorce reaches the trial phase. Your Galveston County divorce lawyer at Ramos Law Group, PLLC can explain how your case will go and what you can expect at every step.

Our Client Testimonials

Superb Law Firm

The decision to end my 25-year marriage was not an easy one, but hiring the Ramos Law Group was. From the initial consultation to the execution of the Divorce Decree everyone at the firm displayed the utmost professionalism and I was treated as if I was their only client. My attorney Lindsey, always provided precise legal guidance, was usually one step ahead of the opposing counsel, and had a superb understanding of how things would play out in the court room. Additionally, whenever my case needed a little extra horsepower, Mary provided that "surge" to keep things on track.

Worth Every Penny

"Ms. Ramos and her entire staff worked with professionalism and compassion to guide me through the most difficult time of my life and to an outcome that was best for my family and myself. Ramos Law is incredible and I highly, highly recommend their services."

Custody case won

"I was recommended to see Mary Ramos for my on coming custody case,it was the best thing I could've done honestly.The Ramos law group was quick with emailed responses and telephone calls,informative with ANY questions I had and they also took action with what they thought would work,which it did,I had money troubles and they were still willing to help they sent me with a younger lawyer Lindsey Lewis to help save some money and she was the best!She knew what she was doing and Mary was still on my case to make sure things went smoothly and to catch any details Lindsey and I might have missed.All in all I am a very satisfied client and if I ever needed a family lawyer again I would come back.My case was won as I received primary for my daughter which is exactly what I asked for.If you're willing to listen to what they have to say and follow their guidance they're definitely worth hiring.I thought I wanted sole custody for my daughter and they explained that wasn't in the best interest for her and honestly they were right,they speak to you on a professional level and also a real level of how things are actually going to work and what could happen if you take a certain action.They definitely care about their clients and make their own bond with you,you're not just money in their pockets you turn into family.

Divorce Attorney

"I received excellent advice and representation from Ms. Lindsey Lewis. She kept me updated at every step of the process, and I never felt as if my case was set aside. I would hire The Ramos Law Group in the future. "

Highly recommend

"I started my divorce with a lawyer who was not very responsive. My divorce case was complicated and needed more laborious scrutiny. Since the case was not moving forward I had to switch lawyers. Made the switch to Ramos Law group. Since the very first day Mary and her team have been very efficient and meticulous. Since the case was complicated the team had to go through myriads of pages in discovery. I was pleased with the legal team that helped us handle the paperwork in a very timely manner. All my questions were answered very promptly. The relay of information was easy with their software system. We finally had a law firm that we could trust. My divorce was finalized and I only have Mary and her team to thank for going through a difficult divorce. I would highly recommend the Ramos law group for their help and support for getting my life back on track. "
