We are also relentless in the courtroom and will fight tirelessly for maximum results.
Our Family Law Practice Areas
- Alimony / Spousal Support: In Texas, spousal maintenance is awarded based on many factors, including the length of the marriage, the age and health of both spouses, the financial needs of each spouse, and the ability of each spouse to pay support. Our firm can help you obtain a fair support order.
- Asset & Debt Division: During the divorce process, you need an experienced divorce lawyer to fight for fair division of your assets and debts. Otherwise, you could lose assets that are rightfully yours and end up with debts that you shouldn't have to pay.
- Business Owner Divorce: As a business owner facing divorce, you need to defend your business property and assets from being divided in the divorce process. A divorce attorney from our firm can provide the relentless representation that you need to ensure that your business property is not considered to be community property.
- Child Custody: Divorce can be particularly difficult when children are involved. You need to protect your child's best interests and ensure that you obtain managing conservatorship, or at least possessory conservatorship, so that you can remain a part of your child's life.
- Common Law Divorce: Spouses who are informally married by common law must still go through the divorce process in order to end their marriage relationship. Speak with a divorce lawyer from our firm to find out whether or not you are common law married and need to file for divorce to end your relationship.
- Grandparents' Rights: Under Texas family law, grandparents have the right to fight for visitation or even custody of their grandchild when the child's parents get a divorce. You will need to prove that your conservatorship is would be in the child's best interest.
- Modifications: Have you experienced a change in circumstance that affects your ability to comply with a divorce order? You have the right to request modification of the court order. This is necessary when you can no longer afford to pay support or when you need to move away.
- Parenting Time: Most divorces that involve children result in joint conservatorship of some kind. As a result, a parenting time agreement will need to be drafted in order to determine how much time each parent spends with the child as well as establish the decision-making rights of each parent.
- Paternity: In order to have and protect your fathers' rights, you need to establish paternity. This can be done at the time of the child's birth, through adoption, through presumption, or by filing a notice of intent to claim paternity. Only then can you protect your rights to possession and access.
- Pre-Marital Agreements: If you have substantial assets and property that you would like to protect before getting married, our firm can help you draft a pre-marital agreement. Such an agreement outlines what property and assets are your sole property so that it cannot be divided in case of an unexpected divorce.
- Post-Marital Agreements: Do you want to protect your personal assets and property after you've already been married? A post-marital agreement can outline what property is yours, protecting it from division in case of a future divorce. A family law attorney from our firm can help you draft a strong agreement.
- Relocation: If you have custody of your child and need to move away, but are under domicile restrictions, you need to request a modification of your custody order. You will need to prove that you have experienced changes in circumstance that require you to relocate outside of your domicile restrictions.
- Same-Sex Custody: Establishing parenthood as a same-sex couple is more complicated than it is for heterosexual couples. As a homosexual couple, you will need the counsel of a knowledgeable attorney from our team to help you get custody in case of separation or divorce.
