Every day more and more families are challenged by issues that will affect them throughout their lives. Decisions made during these critical periods can be some of the most difficult ones a family will ever make because of the potential long-term consequences. I help clients understand their legal needs during these trying times and guide you and your family to help ensure that you achieve the results you need -- now and for the future.
When it comes to disputes over custody of your children, you need an experienced lawyer to guide you through the legal system. I have significant experience handling child custody disputes for mothers and fathers, as well as other family members, in courts throughout Texas.
Child support can be the most contentious family law dispute. All parents want to make sure their child is supported, and child support is not simply defined by money. Every parent's circumstance is unique. I have obtained several judgments for non-payment of child support. I have also defended multiple parents who are unable to pay child support, especially after a change in circumstances such as losing employment or illness.
If CPS comes knocking at your door, it is imperative to seek counsel from a lawyer who can navigate you through the system. I have worked with parents to effectively and quickly resolve matters involving CPS.
When family violence occurs, swift action is necessary to protect yourself and loved ones. I have substantial experience representing parents in prosecuting and defending matters involving protective orders.
For many reasons, a premarital agreement makes sense, and I have drafted and negotiated many agreements before and during marriage to more clearly define assets or other important matters.
