Family Law

heart-broken-solidDivorce

Texas has no-fault divorce, meaning that a divorce can be granted even if the other spouse does not agree to the divorce.  Except in cases involving family violence, there is a minimum waiting period of 60 days from the date that the divorce is filed before the divorce can be granted.  We are committed to protecting your interests and helping you obtain what you deserve.

In Texas, there is a presumption that both parents should be named as Joint Managing Conservators unless there is a good reason not to, such as family violence, child abuse, or illegal drug use).  But “Joint Managing Conservators” do not mean that the child’s time is split equally between each parent.  We are focused on explaining all of your legal options and to protecting your interests in a child custody case.

A court may take a variety of actions to enforce a court order, including holding a party in contempt for failing to obey the court order, which can lead to jail time.  In lieu of jail time, the court can also place a party on community supervision or probation for up to 10 years.  Whether you need defense or wish to bring an enforcement case, we stand ready to serve and safeguard your interests as your family attorney.

Paternity is defined as the legal identification of a child’s father.  When paternity is established, the child’s biological father also becomes the child’s legal father with all the rights and duties of a parent under Texas law, involving issues like visitation, custody, and child support.  We are dedicated to protecting your parental rights in a paternity action.
