family
I handle all types of family law matters including complex divorce litigation, property settlements, child custody and visitation, child support, modifications, parentage, marital agreements, mediation, arbitration, collaborative law and family law appeals, all post divorce matters and all other family law related matters.

Parentage

Fathering a child does not automatically establish legal rights to a child, nor does it automatically establish legally enforceable support for the child. If you are a biological fathers, I will assist you to establish your legal rights to your children, including the right to visit your child and fully partipate in the decisions made in their life. I can also help mothers to confirm the father’s identity of a child and securing child support including provisions for medical insurance and payment of medical expenses for the child.

Modifications

Texas law allows for the modification of orders providing for custody, visitation, child support payments, and other issues related to the rights and duties of divorcing parents or other parties having rights to children. These actions are called modifications and are governed by the Texas Family Code.

If you find yourself in a situation where the orders related to your custody, visitation, or child support arrangements are no longer proving to be in the best interest of your child, I will assist you toanalyze the options available for modifying your Decree of Divorce or other order affecting your child.

CALL ME at (832) 949-8468 and hire an lawyer who will be dedicated to helping you with your modification issues.

Marital Property Agreements

Marital Property Agreements, whether Premarital (created before the wedding) or Post Marital (created during the marriage), can be one of your most valuable tools in avoiding a protracted and costly divorce. Such agreements can identify and clarify the intended marital property rights of the parties before conflicts arise during the marriage.

Prenuptial or Premarital Agreements

Prospective spouses often enter into a written agreement before marriage outlining their respective property rights. Such agreements are particularly important when one party comes into the marriage with a substantial separate estate owned before marriage. The agreement helps preserve your separate estate by clearly identifying the pre-marital assets and even agreeing that the income from such assets will remain your separate property. The parties may even agree that NO community estate will be accumulated during the marriage and therefore, in the event of divorce, there would be nothing for the courts to divide.

Post-Marital Agreements

Once parties are married, they can still enter into a marital property agreement. These Post-Marital Agreements can help resolve marital disputes between spouses by resolving property issues that create friction in the marriage or protect the assets of the parties.
