Longino Law is a Houston-based law firm that provides legal assistance to clients who are going through the difficult process of divorce. The firm specializes in handling complex estates, marital agreements, child custody, child support, and same-sex divorce cases, among other issues.
Divorce is an emotionally challenging process. As a result, it can be beneficial to seek the help of other professionals than just an attorney: a marriage counselor or personal therapist can be extremely beneficial in helping with the emotional turmoil caused by the breakup of a marriage. Longino Law provides compassionate legal representation, guiding clients through the process with information and explanations to help reduce anxiety and facilitate constructive conversations about the path forward.
The divorce process begins with filing a petition with the court, where the client outlines their reasons for seeking a divorce. After filing the petition, the client must serve it to their spouse and await their response. If the other party responds, the parties may be referred to mediation to resolve their dispute. If mediation fails, the parties proceed to a hearing on temporary orders. Discovery follows temporary orders, when the parties disclose their assets, requested relief, and facts supporting those requests. The parties will likely have to mediate again to try to resolve their dispute for a final settlement and, if they cannot, will proceed to trial.
Longino Law was founded by Tristan H. Longino, a former family court judge in Harris County. He is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a distinction held by fewer than 1% of all family law practitioners in Texas. The firm will provide clients with a realistic assessment of the facts of their case, how the law applies to those facts, and their options to develop a sound strategy calculated to lead to the best outcome without generating unnecessary costly litigation.
