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.

Thinking about the future important when divorcing

A divorce can be a very stressful and potentially overwhelming event. Given this, it can be rather easy for a person to fall into mistakes when it comes to their divorce, especially if they try to handle their divorce without any legal help.

There are many different potential divorce mistakes. One is focusing so much on the present that you don’t give proper thought to the future.

Not thinking about the future when going through a divorce can be very detrimental for a person. For one, it could have some long-term negative implications when it comes to financial matters.

Divorce can lead to a lot of financial changes in a person’s life. Failing to think about and plan for one’s financial future when going through a divorce could lead to a person not properly adjusting to such changes and failing to take proper steps to help steer property division and other financial issues in the divorce towards resolutions that are a good match for their long-term financial best interests.

Some things that can help divorcing individuals when it comes to planning for the future in regards to finances and avoiding the above-mentioned divorce mistake include:

  • Setting up a financial plan.
  • Carefully thinking about what their financial goals are for their post-divorce life.
  • Carefully thinking about long-term implications when in proceedings or negotiations regarding finance-related divorce issues, like the division of assets.

Divorce attorneys can help individuals stay focused on the big picture when it comes to divorce matters and assist them in avoiding common divorce mistakes, like not thinking enough about the future when in a divorce. Such attorneys can work with their clients to help get a clear picture of what their clients’ long-term financial goals are and help their clients understand how the different aspects of their divorce could potentially impact their ability to achieve these goals in the long run.
