When Divorce Papers Have Been Served
Being served with divorce papers means that divorce papers have been delivered to you in a way that is in accordance with Texas law. After divorce papers have been served, there are a few things you should remember. First, note the date that you received the divorce papers. This is important because there are strict timelines that apply. Waiting too long to take action could limit your legal options in the future.
It is also important to carefully review the paperwork to determine if you have any questions. Then, you should set up an initial consultation with a divorce attorney to go over your paperwork and to discuss any questions or concerns you have at this point.
Early in the divorce process temporary orders may be issued to address child custody, visitation, child support and spousal maintenance. An attorney can help during this process to ensure that your short-term needs and requirements are met.
As the divorce process proceeds, permanent orders will need to be issued for property division, child custody and visitation, child support, alimony and other applicable matters. An experienced attorney will be able to guide you through the process and help you seek your desired outcome.

Tad and Amber are literally top of the game. When I need results, they are the only people I trust. Quality of service, knowledge and professionalism throughout. Don't gamble with a lawyer on any legal issue, you only want to bet on the best!
Thank you Tad Nelson for standing up for me and what is right, Tad Nelson is obviously well known and respected through out the court system as he spoke with authority and precisely to the assistant DA resulting in the dismissal of my case before the case went to trial. Thank you again. if you want it done call Tad Nelson
I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
