Family Law Cases We Handle
When family fights turn into legal issues, it’s important to have a compassionate and focused lawyer who understands your family dynamics inside and out. These qualities will allow your attorney to gauge the best course of action for your particular situation as well as build personalized, durable solutions. We don’t use a cut-and-dry approach for the cases we handle. With that in mind, take a look at our practice areas below to learn how we can serve you:
Divorce: Dissolving a marriage is a tough decision, especially when the divorce is contested, but when you retain our firm, we can help you open a new chapter in your life. Your new “happily ever after” starts here.
Child custody: This area of family law tends to be the most disputed. Child custody is a serious decision made in family courts, as the child’s best interests come first and foremost. Our team can help you fight for custody rights, show that you embody your child’s best interests, prove that the custodial parent is unfit, and much more.
Child support: The noncustodial parent will be ordered to pay monthly payments called “child support” to help cover the child’s basic needs, such as food, clothing, and shelter. We can help you arrange a support order that falls within your means while supporting your child’s needs.
Property division enforcement: As a community property state, Texas requires divorcing spouses to equally divide all assets acquired during the marriage. Understandably, this can get messy without the help of an experienced attorney.
Alimony and spousal support: The difference between alimony and spousal support is that alimony is paid to the dependent spouse during the divorce while spousal support is paid after the divorce. We help clients on both sides of the matter reach a mutually agreeable solution that suits their situations.
Domestic violence: An accusation of domestic violence can do some serious damage to everyone involved. Whether you’re a reported victim or a reported abuser, our lawyers can help you move forward from this difficult time.
Mediation: Exes and spouses alike tend to opt for divorce mediation over litigation because it saves time, money, and headaches. Mediation allows spouses to work towards solutions on their own terms, rather than letting a judge determine the outcome of their case. This gives both parties control over the result.
Visitation Modification: The only constant in life is change, therefore, you can petition the court for a modification of your support or custody order when circumstances call for it. If you’re getting remarried, lost your job, moving out of state, or dealing with other substantial changes in life, our attorneys can help you obtain a modification that aligns with these changes.
Temporary orders: A temporary order may be necessary if there are allegations of domestic violence, a need for alimony, or other situations that require short-term solutions. Our New Caney attorney can look at your situation to determine if a temporary order is necessary.
Prenuptial agreements: Common myths about prenuptial agreements, or “prenups,” tend to discourage couples from drafting them. However, prenups can be more beneficial than you may think. Talk to us if you’re considering a prenup and we can give you the clarity you need to make the best possible decision for your marriage.
Postnuptial agreements: Prenups are created before a marriage takes place while postnuptial agreements are formed after the marriage. Circumstances change during marriages, as spouses may start businesses, have children, or acquire new property. Thus, postnuptial agreements should outline these changes.
Joint and sole conservatorship: Texas prefers both parents to be involved in their children’s lives through an arrangement called “Joint managing conservatorship.” This allows both parents to make decisions on important things like their child’s education, medical care, religious beliefs, and more. Sole managing conservatorship, however, only grants one parent these decision-making powers.
High net worth divorce: If you and your spouse have a large amount of high-value assets such as trusts, stocks, 401k plans, businesses, and more, you should retain a lawyer who practices high new worth divorce so they can ensure your hard-earned assets are protected during and after the process.
Father’s rights: Contrary to popular belief, child custody is not automatically awarded to mothers in a divorce. Fathers receive equal treatment under the law, and we can help fight for fathers’ rights so they can remain actively involved in their children’s lives post-divorce.
Mother’s rights: The child’s best interests are the top priority in custody matters. A judge will determine if instances of child abuse, paternity issues, and other factors are present in a case before awarding custody rights to a mother.
Post-divorce modification: Your divorce decree may not reflect your circumstances later in life. As such, you can petition for a post-divorce modification. Whether you got remarried, got a new job, or had children with your new spouse, it’s important to note these changes in your modified divorce decree.
