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.

Help Your Divorce Lawyer Help You

On behalf of Charles Hardy at Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, L.L.P.

In a family law or divorce case, your lawyer is one of your primary advocates. You must trust this attorney to work with you to protect your legal rights. Consider the personal qualities your attorney should have before you start interviewing candidates such as, honesty, integrity, good communication, discipline, and creativity in finding constructive solutions. Your San Antonio divorce lawyer’s job is to represent your side and argue your case; however, it is your responsibility to arm your lawyer with the facts in your divorce case.

GET YOUR PAPERWORK TOGETHER

You will need to have a record of names, account numbers, addresses, and phone numbers for all of your assets and debts. Other important information for your San Antonio divorce lawyer includes bank accounts, credit cards, loans, stocks and bonds, mortgages, and title information. It is also helpful to have tax statements for the last three years, as well as employment information. If there is a business involved, get copies of the tax records, assets, and debts. Other paperwork to make copies of are deeds, prenuptial agreements, and other estate planning documents.

DETERMINE THE VALUE OF YOUR MARITAL ESTATE AND EXPENSES

In San Antonio, the marital estate is everything that was acquired during your marriage. When preparing for a divorce, keep a budget of your income and expenses. This will help provide documentation for determining the amount of support awarded, as well as give you an idea of what it will take to live on after your divorce.

DOCUMENT YOUR POSSESSIONS

You can photograph or videotape your possessions, including the contents of your house, your vehicles, and other property. When it comes time to divide the marital estate, this can provide proof of its existence.

KEEP A DIARY OF YOUR MARRIAGE

Document the date of your marriage, birth of children, and you and your spouse’s work histories. Most important, record any instances of family violence, infidelity, and drug abuse. This will help your lawyer when gathering evidence for a San Antonio fault based divorce case.

It’s imperative to provide your San Antonio divorce lawyer with information that will persuade the courts in your favor. If you present a weak case to your divorce attorney, you won’t be able to succeed in court. This is just a preliminary list to get you started. At HHZ Law, our San Antonio lawyers will sit down with you and explain everything we need to successfully argue your case.
