Houston, Texas Divorce Attorney Offers Recommendations

Video Transcript:

Rob Rosenthal: 

If you have a protective order against a spouse, can you also file for divorce? That's what we asked Houston lawyer Duana Boswell-Loechel in this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.

Duana Boswell-Loechel: 

Yes, you can and is highly suggested. Because if you get a protective order, the minimum protective order typically is two years, and you're not going to be allowed to be around that person for two years. And so you want to set up the parameters of property division, and especially for the children you want to have the possession and access and child support set up as well as how health insurance is going to proceed.
