Cases We Handle

The following are some examples of cases we handle on a regular basis.

Divorce

Having a marriage end is a stressful time, and how you handle your divorce can directly impact your future finances and relationships with your children. We can help with all divorce-related issues, including the division of community property and child-related matters.

Spousal support

Spousal support - also known as alimony - is not an issue in every divorce case, but when it arises, it can be a contentious matter. We can help whether you are seeking support or being asked to pay support.

Child conservatorship and child support

In Texas, child custody is called “conservatorship,” and this issue can come up as part of a divorce case or between parents who were never married. Conservatorship arrangements usually go hand-in-hand with child support determinations.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

If you are planning to marry, you should consider whether a prenuptial agreement will help to protect your rights should the marriage end. If you are married and want an agreement, you can enter into a postnuptial agreement.

Modifications of orders

If you have an existing support or conservatorship order that is no longer working due to changed circumstances, we can help you seek a modification of the order.

Adoption

Adoption benefits many people, including women who cannot care for their child and families who want to complete their families through adoption. This is a legal process, and we can help it go as smoothly as possible for all parties.

Child Protective Services Cases

It can be a nightmare to have Child Protective Services investigate you or threaten your parental rights. You need an advocate who will stand up and help you during this devastating time. We handle all types of matters involving CPS, including adoptions, fostering, relative parent interventions, and more.
