I understand many lawyers in Texas that can provide you with legal support for a family law issue. But, I believe it is critical to work with a local lawyer that specializes in family law. I am that lawyer.
I have been practicing family law exclusively in Fort Bend County, Brazoria County, and Harris County for a decade. I know the ins and outs of navigating the unique local rules and ordinances involved in a family law dispute that can affect the outcome of your case.
Whether you need support with a divorce, child-related legal matter, modifying a previous order or enforcing a court order, I will serve as a fierce advocate to help you arrive at the best possible outcome. That’s why I believe it’s best to work with a family law lawyer near you to ensure that every detail is accounted for on the path to resolving your family law matter.
Find Support With Prevalent Family Law Matters in Texas
Since the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted families across Texas, I have seen an uptick in specific types of family disputes. I can provide you with expert support for some of the most prevalent types of cases in your local area:
- Protective Orders
- Modifications of previous orders
Find Local Divorce Support in Texas
The pandemic created tremendous stress on families in our local area – specifically, financial stress. According to a national survey, Houston ranks #3 among cities that have experienced the most financial stress since the pandemic. For many families, this brought to surface marital challenges that placed families on the path to divorce.
Divorces can quickly become complicated in Texas, especially if children are involved, creating additional stress. No matter what side of the dispute you are on, I can provide you with support protecting your financial position, helping you with child custody and child support matters, and representing you in court to provide the strongest argument for your case.
You will want to make sure your parental rights are protected in a divorce proceeding. You don’t want to leave things up to chance trying to present an argument on your own when your financial future and the future of your relationship with your children are at stake.
I will also make sure that all appropriate paperwork is complete, that you continue to meet deadlines, and that you are prepared for your court hearing dates. Any slip-up could affect the court’s ultimate decision. When you work with me, I will pay attention to every detail that a general lawyer might miss. Since I practice family law exclusively in your area, I will take care of every last detail to give you confidence on the path to resolving the divorce.
Obtain a Protective Order
Not everyone reacted appropriately to stress during the pandemic. If your spouse, ex-spouse, love interest, or even a non-family individual has created an unsafe environment for you and/or your children, then I can help you obtain a protective order.
You will want to work with a family law lawyer to make sure you receive the appropriate legal protection that matches the severity of the situation. This includes helping you obtain an emergency protective order and involving local authorities if necessary. Since I know your area, I know who to get in contact with.
If you believe that you and your family are in danger, please contact me immediately. I will help you obtain the most protection allowed by the law and work to provide you with protection from the offender. If criminal charges are appropriate, then I can provide you with resources to seek additional legal protection.
Modify an Existing Order
So many aspects of “normal life” seem upside down since the pandemic. If you experienced job loss, a reduction in wages, or another material and substantial change in life circumstances, then I can help you pursue a modification of your existing court order to arrive in a more manageable position.
You could also be on the other side of the coin where your ex-spouse has experienced a major change in life circumstances, and you believe the original court order should be modified to put you in a more favorable position.
– For example, if you discovered that your ex-spouse’s income dramatically increased, then you could be entitled to a proportional increase in alimony (known as spousal support or maintenance in Texas). You would want to pursue a modification of the original divorce order to provide you with a fairer amount of monthly maintenance.
– Another example could be that your ex-spouse remarried, and now you believe the original divorce order should be modified to not require you to pay spousal support.
– There are countless examples of opportunities to pursue a modification. I can work through the specific details of your case to help you determine the appropriate action to take.
