While the Coronavirus (COVID-19) was disrupting everyone’s lives, Palmer Lehman Sandberg worked to achieve a balance – continuing to take care of our clients’ legal needs, while protecting our clients, our employees, and our community (local and nationwide).

As Texas has begun to reopen, Palmer Lehman Sandberg has adjusted accordingly.

  • We are available for in-office meetings, with the following protections in place – while in our building and our office common areas (lobby, elevators, hallways, etc.), visitors must wear face coverings, and maintain social distancing (minimum 6’) as much as possible.
  • We continue telephone and video conferencing in place of face-to-face meetings, for those who prefer it.

As we continue to serve you, we wish everyone safety and good health as together we move forward through these uncertain times.

Please reach out to anyone at our firm via email or phone with any questions or concerns.

Uncontested And Contested Divorce In Texas

At Palmer Lehman Sandberg, PLLC, we understand that each divorce is different. No two couples are the same so no two divorces can be handled in the same way.

Our team of attorneys is experienced in handling both contested and uncontested divorces. We work closely with our clients to devise a customized divorce plan that meets a client’s unique needs.

Contested Divorce

A contested divorce is any divorce in which both parties have one or more issues on which they cannot agree. Most divorces are contested, as most couples have some disagreements regarding property division, child custody and other divorce-related issues.

When handling a contested divorce, our attorneys strive to provide clients with options that meet their goals throughout the process. We assist in obtaining temporary orders for couples whose divorces are not yet final. We first will attempt to settle, but if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached, we have vast experience in trying family law cases at the courthouse.

Uncontested Divorce

For many couples, most of the issues are uncontested, but if the spouses have a disagreement on any issue of significance, the case is not truly an uncontested case.

An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which both parties agree on each and every divorce-related issue. While not always possible, this is generally the most efficient and cost-effective option for couples who wish to divorce.

Our attorneys are trained in the art of assisting clients with an uncontested divorce, including brainstorming creative compromises so that both parties can “win.”

Family Law Services

Most divorces require couples to deal with other related issues. Our team of family law attorneys offers a variety of legal services to meet the varied needs of clients:

  • Collaborative family law
  • Locating hidden assets
  • Family law mediations and arbitration
  • Dividing retirement benefits tax-free
  • Prenuptial and postmarital agreements
  • Complex property division
  • Grandparents’ rights
