Some of Our Divorce Lawyer Reviews from Real Clients
Cristi has helped me deal with an impossible situation. You're not just a case file with her. You're a real person dealing with a real situation. Whether it's assets or children, you're in the best hands possible.
I can definitely recommend Trusler Legal. My husband and I were no longer compatible after 2 kids and being married for 14 years. The divorce process is complicated, but the staff was very understanding, compassionate and patient with me. Cristi fully understood my concerns for my children and made sure I completely understood the consequences of my decisions. She never pressured me or tried to talk me into a decision that I wasn’t ready to make.
I work in the family law field, and have for more than a decade. So when I was faced with needing to hire an attorney to represent my family, I knew exactly who I wanted for the job. Cristi Trusler and her staff are courteous, responsive, and always kept me and my husband informed about what our options were. When you are fighting for something as important as your children, it is imperative that you feel heard, and that you know you are getting the best possible advice from someone with real trial experience. My husband and I could not be more pleased with the work of Trusler Legal, and would recommend Ms. Trusler to anyone needing sound legal advice and representation.

If the person serving overseas is served with divorce papers, they have the right to invoke The Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 ("SSCRA") in order to postpone the process. This is a federal statute that was enacted to "protect those who have been obliged to drop their own affairs to take up the burdens of the nation."
If the person overseas wishes to file for a divorce, they may do so in whatever county of Texas in which they reside.
