Kingwood Divorce Attorney & Marriage Dissolution
Divorce is not always as simple as dividing up the belongings of two people. Kingwood divorce attorney, Brian J. McNamara, handles all types of divorces, including cases that involve extensive or complex assets, and issues about children. Often, divorce is not simply the dissolution of a marriage; it can also be the end of a shared investment strategy and a financial relationship more complex than a business partnership.
Many couples enjoy growth in the value of their joint assets during marriage, and often acquire valuable property from other sources such as by inheritance or gift. In such cases, marital asset division can be complicated and contentious. An attorney experienced in the division of complex personal and marital property can be a powerful advocate for your interests.
A Detail-Oriented Approach to Your Divorce
Brian J. McNamara takes a hands-on, detail-oriented approach to divorce cases. If both spouses are cooperative about child custody and support and are forthcoming about their assets and finances, there may be little need for extensive investigation or contentious litigation. Mr. McNamara’s approach to divorce is, as much as possible, to facilitate peace and positive relationships within the family.

Advocating for Our Client’s True Interests in Divorce
