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.

Divorce myths can prevent some in Texas from taking action

It is not unusual for couples to have some unhappiness in their relationships. However, when that unhappiness turns into misery, many couples in Texas consider the idea of seeking a divorce. For many who have never been through the process, there may be some uncertainty. In fact, some people choose to delay ending their marriage due to some myths regarding the proceedings.

One of the most common myths regarding divorces is that they are always contentious. Fortunately, that does not have to be the case. There are many attorneys whose focus is to resolve conflict through negotiation. For many couples, a collaborative divorce was an option that allowed them to separate their lives without having to go through a public trial.

Some parents may be hesitant to seek divorce because of child custody concerns. While in the past it seems that courts showed some bias toward mothers in such cases, courts must make decisions that are in the best interest of the children. While this determination is made based on several criteria, it is not made based on the gender of the parent.

It is fairly common for those considering a divorce to seek advice from people who have already been through the process. Unfortunately, many people who seek such advice from their friends and acquaintances receive inaccurate information. As a result, those in Texas considering ending their marriage can benefit from having a conversation with an experienced divorce attorney. By doing so, they are likely better prepared to make informed decisions regarding their  best interests and well as those of their family.
