Contact Marvel Law Group to schedule an initial consultation today. Let’s discuss your options for resolution.

Contested and Uncontested 

The reality is, there is a 50/50 chance that your marriage will end. Most spouses begin thinking they’ll agree on the divorce, but as they go through the list of disputes, they cannot seem to agree on contentious matters like who the child gets to live with and who gets the family home.

In Texas, spouses can either pursue a contested or an uncontested divorce. Contested is a process for spouses who disagree over the division of property, their savings, or caring for their children.

Alternatively, if you and your spouse mutually agree to end your marriage and agree on how to settle all your disputes, you may pursue a simplified uncontested plan. 

Military Divorce

Military divorce is a special category the Marvel Law Group also handles. San Antonio is “Military City USA” and our firm is proud to represent service members, their spouses and retirees.

Resolving disputes in a military divorce is similar to the process for doing so in a standard civilian process. Child custody, child support, and property division can be negotiated mutually between the spouses, or the case will proceed to trial if they cannot agree. Specialized rules for retirement, disability awards, and spouses on deployment during the legal process are unique to the military. The Marvel Law Group is equipped to vigorously represent your interests.


One category of divorce that is less talked about it is seniors. Seniors want to pay especially careful attention to the following concerns that will have immediate impacts:

  • Spousal support (the longer you are married, the likelier you can obtain spousal support)
  • Retirement savings
  • Estate plan 
  • Changes to Social Security post divorces
