What I Do
Some divorces are simple and agreed. Others are highly-contested. Some involve no children or property. Others involve many children and multimillion dollar estates. I have years of experience with all types of divorce cases, including the above, and those involving military spouses, a mixture of separate and community property, complex financial issues, custom possession and access schedules, and spousal maintenance.
"Child custody" in Texas is a blanket term meant to encompass the following: conservatorship (who makes what decisions regarding the child), possession and access (who sees the child and when), child support, and a number of other important items. I handle all forms of cases from new custody suits to modifications of previous orders to interstate proceedings involving the UCCJEA to enforcements involving denial of possession and access and unpaid child support.
Every child deserves a loving and lasting home. Unfortunately, not every biological parent is capable of providing this. Texas law allows certain people, including stepparents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, to adopt children into caring families. Often, this is with the consent of the biological parents. Sometimes, it involves seeking to terminate a parent's legal relationship with a child. Whether contested or not, I have years of experience handling all forms of Texas adoptions.
I also routinely handle prenuptial and postmarital agreements, suits involving grandparents' rights, annulments, informal (or "common law") marriage, child support cases, contempt, protective orders involving family violence, gestational agreements, habeas corpus, cases involving LGBTQ rights, postdissolution partitions, qualified domestic relations orders ("QDROs"), and cases involving UIFSA.
