At Coontz Cochran, we take a unique approach to our cases. Each individual or family is different – as different as the individuals in it. How a divorce is settled takes a great deal of insight into how to manage a case on an individual basis. We do not operate with a "one size fits all" perspective. We take the time to hear our clients and truly understand the issues they are facing, and work out a strategy to seek resolution for the issues, either through negotiations with the opposing attorney, or litigation when this will best serve the interests of our clients. Our detailed case preparation has proven to be the pivotal factor in the outcome of many of our cases. We know how important these issues are to our clients, and we don't move ahead until we have a strategic plan in place.
We serve the area of Cleburne in all family law issues, including divorce, legal issues regarding child custody and child support, and can be called upon for fast, effective action in cases in which the issue of domestic violence is involved.

Some of the most difficult matters to get under control in a divorce, particularly a divorce in which the two parties are essentially engaged in a battle, are property division and child custody. A divorce is a time of great personal transition, from one life to a new one, hopefully a better one. We understand the stresses that individuals go through when confronting such a complete change in life and circumstances. It is important that you have the legal support and counsel needed so that you can make the right decisions, based upon your personal situation and all of the contributing factors. These include the duration of the marriage, the children of the marriage, and the roles that were played by each of the parties over the term of the marriage.
For example, if one spouse was the major breadwinner for the family, while the other raised the children, this will have an impact on matters regarding support. Issues regarding assets owned by one of the partners prior to the marriage can become complicated as funds are comingled or one partner helps to upgrade a property or other confusing aspects in property division. We have access to top respected resources, such as forensic accountants to call upon to support the case we present to resolve these crucial matters.
