Issues Involving Children

Doing what is right for the child is always a top priority for parents, even for parents who cannot agree with each other. "What is in the best interest of the child(ren)" is the primary question Texas court's ask when dealing with cases affecting the parent-child relationship. There are many different issues parents have to deal with relating to their children, including:

  • Custody: Texas Courts find it important that both parents have an opportunity to maintain a strong relationship with their children. Typically, both parents will be awarded join-custody to ensure they both are regularly involved in the child's life, even though one parent may spend more time with the child. Still, however, it is possible for one parent to be named sole-managing conservator of the child if there is a compelling argument against the other parent. 

  • Enforcement and Modification of Custody Orders: Is the other parent disobeying a previous court order relating to child custody? Or are you worried about the other parent accusing you of parental alienation or violating child custody orders? It may be time for you to contact a family law attorney to give you honest answers about your situation from a legal perspective.

  • Child Visitation and Modification:

  • Child Support and Modification:

  • Enforcemeng of Child Support Orders:

  • Relocation: Are you thinking about moving to a new city or state? Or has the other parent threatened to move away with your child for their own personal reasons? A family law attorney can give you a clear assessment of the potential outcomes of your situation and what you can legally do about it.​

TAXES AND DIVORCE
Divorce already takes a mental and financial toll, and the last thing a person needs is for a tax problem to contribute to the stress.

Typically, tax issues relating to a divorce will not become apparant until months, sometimes years, after their divorce has been finalized. Although taxes are not the principal concern during a divorce, tax consequences can be expensive and difficult to resolve when they finally arise.

That is why it's important that you obtain legal counsel prepared to advise you on the long-term tax implications of the various potential terms of your divorce to help save you money in the long run.
