Beaumont Divorce Lawyer Texas Contested Divorce Attorney

Is there an advantage to filing for divorce first?

It depends on whom you ask! Certainly, a spouse who waits to file for divorce when he or she knows there is a serious problem at home may appear less credible in the eyes of the court. "If it was so bad, why did you wait for your spouse to file for divorce?" The person who brings the case first gets to talk first. Some lawyers swear that there is an advantage to being first. Others say it doesn't really matter. There is no negative connotation attributable to the spouse who brings the action or to the person who responds to the action. However, as one lawyer said, "first impressions are lasting impressions." If family violence has been a part of your life you need to take action. It is more credible for a victim of family violence to bring the action first.

If you are considering a divorce and are looking for an attorney who will meet with you quickly and make an immediate filing, contact Beaumont divorce lawyer Suzanne Schaper by calling 409-833-9400 today.
