Types of Family Legal Matters We Handle
Our firm knows that family issues are boundless. For these reasons, we serve clients in an extensive range of legal capacities pertaining to family law because we know that family comes first. As such, you can come to us for all your family legal issues, including but not limited to:
Divorce: Divorce is a sensitive situation for all parties involved. We know the stakes are high, but nothing will stand in our way as we work towards the best possible outcome in your divorce. We can help you overcome any of the following divorces.
- Contested and uncontested divorce
- High net worth divorce
- Common law divorce
- Dentist divorce
- Physicians divorce
- Gray divorce
- Collaborative divorce
- International divorce
- Out-of-state divorce
- Military divorce
Child custody: Determining custody of your children is arguable one of the most disputed and sensitive situations in divorce. Unless you resolve your child custody arrangements through mediation, a family court judge will ultimately determine who gets custody after evaluating the best interests of the child. Our team can help you navigate this process and work towards a favorable outcome in your situation.
Child support: In Texas, the noncustodial parent is often required to pay child support to help cover the child’s basic necessities, such as food, clothing, and shelter. Custodial parents often feel as if they aren’t receiving enough monetary support while noncustodial parents tend to feel like they’re paying too much. No matter what side you stand on, know that legal help is just a phone call away.
Property division enforcement: Do you suspect your ex-spouse is hiding assets? Are you worried that your ex would claim your separate property as community property? Dividing assets is a touchy matter in a divorce, and oftentimes, spouses need an attorney to help them enforce their property division orders. That’s what we’re here for.
Alimony and spousal support: Alimony is money paid to a dependent spouse during a divorce proceeding to help them financially recover, while spousal support is legally mandated payments given to spouses after a divorce. We can help determine if you qualify for spousal maintenance or support and work to help you achieve a fair solution.
Domestic violence: Domestic violence allegations in a divorce matter often result in protective orders, termination of parental rights, supervised visitation for children, and unfavorable court rulings for the accused. Our team understands that both sides can suffer amidst a domestic violence accusation, so whether you are a victim or a reported perpetrator, know that we can help you overcome this challenging time.
Mediation: A widely popular alternative to courtroom litigation, mediation is beneficial for civil and respectful spouses who want to reach mutually agreeable solutions to their family legal issues. Couples going through an uncontested divorce typically opt for mediation as a way to resolve their legal disputes and achieve their own resolutions on their own terms rather than letting a judge decide the fate of their matter.
Visitation Modification: Circumstances change, and your visitation agreement may have to change accordingly. You must get the court’s approval before modifying your visitation agreement, as a judge generally only grants a modification under very limited circumstances. You should speak with your lawyer to determine if you qualify for a potential modification for these reasons.
Temporary orders: Temporary orders are often implemented to address a vast range of issues for a short period of time. Temporary orders may concern spousal support, domestic violence, or property possession. You can discuss your situation with us so we can determine if a temporary order is appropriate.
Prenuptial agreements: Believe it or not, prenuptial agreements — often called “prenups” — have far more benefits than people think. There are false notions about prenups going around out there, but these days, more and more spouses are considering a prenup to ensure they’re on the same page and transparent with one another before entering a marriage.Prenuptial agreements can be a sensitive subject, so we encourage you to speak with us to learn more.
Postnuptial agreements: Things change. Spouses acquire more property, have children, start businesses, and embark on other significant chapters during their marriage. As such, spouses may consider a postnuptial agreement to reflect those major changes.
Joint and sole conservatorship: Joint managing conservatorship is often awarded to parents who are getting divorced, allowing them to have decision-making powers on most issues concerning the child, including their education, medical care, religious beliefs, and more. Sole managing conservatorship, on the other hand, gives one parent most of the decision-making powers without having to consult the other parent.
Father’s rights: Fathers have historically gotten the “short end of the stick” in divorces and other family legal matters. The social stigma surrounding their caretaking capacities tends to put fathers at a disadvantage in their situations, but we firmly believe all people deserve equality under the law. As such, we will fight for your rights as a father not only for you but also for your children.
Mother’s rights: Contrary to popular belief, a divorce does not mean a mother will automatically get full custody of her children. A judge will evaluate several factors to determine what rights a mother has over her kids, identifying instances of child abuse, paternity issues, and high-conflict separations.
Estate Planning Services in Huffman
Estate planning is the process of outlining who gets what assets and when after you die. No one likes to think about their death, but estate planning is a critical tool if you want to protect your hard-earned assets. It is also effective in the event that you become incapacitated and can no longer make decisions about your health, home, and finances. That being said, our Huffman attorney provides a comprehensive range of estate planning services that are customized to your individual needs and family dynamics. Every detail counts, so you can rest assured that no stone will be left unturned in your case.

- Elder law and Medicaid: Our lawyer can help you or a loved one resolve issues concerning Medicaid eligibility, retirement, income security, and long-term care planning.
- Family-owned businesses and farms: This service is important for protecting your family business or family farm from instances like lawsuits or unexpected deaths, as you want to keep your hard-earned wealth within your family.
- Incapacity planning: Unfortunately, life can throw unexpected curveballs, which is why incapacity planning exists. If you are unable to make your own decisions, incapacity planning will help address your healthcare, end-of-life care, finances, assets, and more.
- Retirement planning: Prepare for the future with our IRA and retirement planning services if you want to establish a solid plan of action for financial stability when you are no longer working.
- Legacy planning: This type of planning incorporates key documents such as wills and testaments, estate plans and trusts, life insurance, IRAs, and more.
- LGBTQ estate planning: Although same-sex marriage has been legal since 2015, discrimination against these communities remains. Estate planning for LGBTQ couples is especially important if they are not married. As such, we encourage you begin planning for the future today.

We can help with this process every step of the way.
