Our Firm Will Help You Achieve Your Goals
In addition to protecting your interests in court, our clients benefit from our clarification of your rights and responsibilities under the Texas Family Code. It's easier to make sound decisions for yourself and your children once you understand what the law requires and facts that judges may evaluate in your case. Therefore, we work closely with each client to complete a thorough investigation including gathering facts about various child related and property related issues, such as:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Temporary custody, support and residence orders
- Restraining or protective orders
- Spousal support
- Disclosure of income and assets
- Division of community property
- Property characterization - is an asset separate or community property?
- Business valuation
- High asset or high net worth issues
- Evaluation of prenuptial or postnuptial agreements
An important strength of our divorce practice lies in our ability to work effectively with clients who anticipate a high degree of conflict on property division or child custody issues. As we help you define your objectives, we also develop the strategies that are most likely to achieve them through negotiation, mediation or trial. We can certainly help you resolve less contentious issues as well. If both parties agree to the terms of a proposed order we can facilitate and quickly help you resolve your issues.
