Our Areas of Practice in Family Law
Legal issues can occur at any time and affect just about any family member, whether it’s directly or indirectly. A divorce can directly affect children, whereas a custody schedule may indirectly impact a child’s grandparents, for instance. For these reasons and more, you want a lawyer who has a broad range of legal capacities in this specific area of law. That’s why our firm provides comprehensive family legal services to better serve our Conroe clients. Our practice areas include, but are not limited to:
Divorce: Whether you are dealing with a contested or uncontested divorce, you can count on our attorney to help you achieve a beneficial solution as seamlessly as possible. When happily ever after fades away, we are here to help you create your new happily ever after.
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 lawyerto 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.
High net worth divorce: When one or both spouses in a divorce have a considerable amount of valuable assets, such as trusts, stocks, 401k plans, professional licenses and certifications, businesses, and more, they will need an attorney who can confidentially and carefully handle their divorce in high-stakes situations like these.
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.
Post-divorce modification: Life changes fast, so the terms of your divorce decree may not turn out as effective as you had originally intended. Whether you are moving to a different state, lost your job, got remarried, or experienced another significant change of events, you want to hire a lawyer to help get your divorce decree modified to suit the best interests of you and your children.
