Coronavirus, Divorce and Family Law:

We are open!

Higdon Hardy & Zuflacht is taking a safe but proactive approach to the Coronavirus situation in our law practice. We are working every day to represent our family law clients. At the same time, we are following best practices to protect the health of our employees and our clients. To read more please Click Here

All our employees understand that they should not be working if they are sick, and in particular, that they should not be at our office while sick.

To further protect our employees and our clients we are encouraging meetings by phone, Zoom, Skype or similar means. We have represented clients from out of state and out of the country in this manner for many years. Our clients often prefer this to traveling to our office.

We are also working with the divorce and civil courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.

To further protect the health of all concerned, all our attorneys and staff have the technology and capability to work on cases and with clients from home as well as at the office. Your phone calls will be returned. Your emails will be answered. Your case deadlines will be met.

The days ahead may be a challenge. We do not yet know the extent to which particular courts will curtail trials or even the extent to which HHZ will have clients and other guests come to our office. We will continue to work to take care of our clients’ cases and to take on new matters and clients. We will simply manage your case in less traditional, more technology-driven ways, that are safer for your health and ours.

Thank you for your trust.

Trust Our Experience. Family Law is what we do.

All of the partners at our firm are Board Certified in Family Law - less than 1% of Texas lawyers achieve this distinction.

Friendly divorce for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck passed their 10-year wedding anniversary the end of June. Unfortunately, the two are divorcing.

The two gave a joint statement, saying they are going forward “with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children.” They asked that their privacy, including that of their children, be respected.

They met on the set of “Pearl Harbor” and started dating after making the movie “Daredevil.” Over the years, each has given statements professing their love and respect for one another.

The couple has three children, ages 3, 6 and 9. They plan on using mediation during the divorce and ensuing that the divorce stays on friendly terms for the sake of the children, but also for their own peace.

While your divorce may not be fodder for tabloid news, there is a lot to be learned here. The couple clearly is focused on the well-being of their children, rather than on the strength of the marriage. Have you asked your soon-to-be ex if mediation or collaborative law could be the right choice?

Mediation uses a third party to listen to each side of the divorce. Then the mediator helps the two parties reach an agreement, when possible. Collaborative law involves each party and his or her attorney attempting to reach an agreement. However, if this doesn’t work, then the attorneys must excuse themselves and other representation must be obtained.

Divorce is not an easy time for most people. Having access to professionals, such as an experienced family law attorney, financial planners and even therapists can prove very helpful.
