Do You Have Questions About a Family Matter?

I can guide you through all aspects of the divorce process, whether your divorce is contested or uncontested. I will help you understand your options and represent you through the processes of complex property division proceedings, including the division of business assets.

Child Custody

When children are involved, the stakes are higher. This is one of the most emotional and important matters to resolve in family cases. I can help you protect your parental rights and the best interests of your children in all custody and visitation matters.

Child Support & Paternity 

I represent both sides of child support and paternity matters in Texas. Divorce can bring so much uncertainty into your life, and when children are involved it’s important to minimize the chaos and strain it has on their lives. The custodial parent (who has custody of the children the majority of the time) has the right to continuing financial support for their child’s needs. 

Parent Relocations 

Being able to maintain relationships with your children is important for both your children and yourself. Whether you are seeking to relocate with your child, or you are trying to stop a relocation that will hurt your rights as a parent and/or your relationship with them, I can provide you with the advice and advocacy you need.

Prenuptial Agreements

By establishing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, I can help you protect separate marital assets. I have the knowledge and skills to make sure no detail is overlooked, and all of the necessary documentation is properly filed so you can go into marriage with confidence and peace of mind regarding your personal assets.
