Life is unpredictable — even the best laid plans can go awry. In some situations that you encounter, it may be necessary to rely on the professional services of a legal expert and representative from Robert J. Anderson PLLC Law Firm. Here are four of the most common situations that may require a lawyer here in the state of Texas:

Couple in counseling before divorce


Ideally, when facing a divorce, couples will agree to split amicably and mutually agree on the details of their separation. In these cases, a lawyer is rarely required. However, legal representation is very wise in cases where there are disagreements involving property, investments, support, child custody, and other relevant issues. Once a divorce is finalized, those terms are binding and can only be changed by returning to the courtroom. Relying on a good lawyer from the start can help provide the most mutually beneficial outcome for both parties.
