The Texas State Bar says that it’s unethical for an attorney represent both spouses. There’s a good reason for this. It’s a conflict of interest to give advice to both parties in a case.
With that said, we’re often the only attorney in a case. We represent one of the spouses and the other spouse represents himself or herself. Just to be clear, in this situation, we’re not going to try and take advantage of the spouse that is representing himself or herself by trying to get a one-sided deal.
