There comes a time in some relationships when both parties realize that it is time to move on and dissolve the relationship. Divorce affects an average of one out of every two marriages in the United States, and yet each one is unique. Without the right attorney, divorce can be emotionally draining and financially frustrating. The Law Firm of Carolyn McDaniel & Rick Forlano can help couples in Richmond, Texas, make the process as smooth and equitable as possible.
Divorce proceedings can be complicated by a wide variety of factors that must be considered in order to broker a fair and workable arrangement. Some couples have prenuptial or postnuptial agreements that must be navigated as part of the process. For many others, children add new layers of complexity as they struggle with decisions regarding custody, visitation, support and spousal support.
Attorneys Carolyn McDaniel and Rick Forlano have the knowledge and experience necessary to help couples hammer out effective arrangements for all matters pertaining to the divorce, before these issues must be decided by the courts. It is always better for families to work out the most workable arrangements themselves in a no-fault divorce with the help of a compassionate and skilled attorney.

Attorneys Carolyn McDaniel and Rick Forlano can explain more about each option in a confidential consultation.
