What can you do when your spouse doesn't want a divorce? Texas is a no fault divorce state. That means anyone who wants a divorce can get one. The question is how to go about it without making any already difficult situation worse.
I’ve seen way too many end of the game mediations when spouses are expected to settle their differences after lawyers have created irreconcilable conflict, charged exorbitant amounts of money on both sides, and have left the spouses in deep debt and hating each other. Decisions feel forced and that causes long term resentment. Everyone suffers (except the lawyers).

If you are thinking about divorce and you are a parent with a child who will be in school in the fall, you owe it to your kids to call Detente now for our exclusive “May to August” divorce. And if you intend to ask for spousal support, it is imperative to start your divorce immediately so you can finalize it in 2018 before the new tax reforms come into effect on January 1, 2019 when alimony/spousal support will no longer be tax deductible.
