- Child support: Our firm’s attorneys help both parents make child support arrangements that benefit their child’s best interests, including child support order modifications, collecting back child support, addressing college expenses and enforcing existing child support orders.
- Child custody: Child custody suits in Texas are divided into two categories: conservatorship (deciding if one or both parents are responsible for making decisions concerning the child) and possession and access (determining how much time each parent spends with the child).
- Adoptions: Our attorneys work directly with birth parents (if present) and hopeful adoptive parents to assist in agency, stepparent, grandparent and surrogate adoptions. We have helped numerous families successfully complete the adoption process without delays and unnecessary expenses.

- Permanent restraining order
Our firm’s attorneys assist each client, their caseworkers and supervisors in all aspects of child protective services (CPS) investigations and cases. You can rely on us to make sure you understand your options, guide you through the process, and limit your court costs as much as possible.
Protecting You In Divorce
The divorce process can be complicated and emotionally taxing. Having our experienced representation can take the guesswork out of it, allowing you to focus your energy and attention where they are needed most. Divorces are complex in nature and can be categorized as collaborative (spouses can reach an amicable decision) and contested (spouses cannot come to a decision). We have an experience of 30 years in divorce and specialize in high-asset cases. We also enforce legal separations and implement pre- and post-nuptial agreements.
