McKinney Divorce Attorney

Texas Marriage Dissolution Lawyer

Have you heard horror stories about divorce lawyers? Have you heard tales of fees piling high, unreturned phone calls and outcomes that could only be described as shocking? My clients have no such stories to tell. I take pride in the positive outcomes I've achieved for people in McKinney and throughout Texas over the course of more than 35 years, outcomes that lead to referrals and praise, not horror stories.

You can contact me, Michael Suffness, whether you are considering filing for divorce, know you want to proceed, or a case has been filed against you and you need to respond. From our very first conversation, I will focus on reducing your stress and guiding you through this difficult time in your life.

Amicable and Affordable Resolutions Are Ideal

The more issues you and your spouse can agree on, the more amicable and affordable your divorce will be. If you can agree on everything without the help of an attorney, you can even proceed with an uncontested divorce. If you can reach agreements on property division, child custody and visitation and other major issues, your divorce does not have to "get ugly" or cost many thousands of dollars. My goal is to counsel you based on the unique details of your situation, helping with negotiations or mediation as necessary.

If an amicable resolution is not possible, I am prepared to take the next step. However, taking a contested divorce all the way to court puts major decisions in the hands of a judge. There is no guarantee that the judge's decisions will meet your needs, or that they will be any better than what you can negotiate on your own. Furthermore, costs should not be underestimated.
