A Family Law Specialist As Certified By The Texas Board Of Legal Specialization

Family law is an inherently painful and emotional area of law. Anyone who has gone through a property division or child custody dispute during their divorce can attest to the difficult, frustrating and confusing nature of the process. While I can help make the process less painful, I cannot remove all of the pain or confusion. However, I will always do my best to not destroy those life connections you wish to maintain post-divorce. The reality is that if children are involved, the courts will want you to maintain parental relationships post-divorce, unless the relationship with the other parent is not in the best interests of the child.

As the courts see it and as I see it, and as my client should see it, a good, attentive non-custodial parent should have as much access and possession as possible under the law, as that is usually better for the child or children. Since a Joint Managing Conservatorship is, by law, presumed to be in the best interests of the child or children, to request otherwise (that, generally, biological parents should not have co-equal rights to their children) requires significant evidence to rebut the presumption.

I can explain the confusing aspects of a family law case and give you the knowledge that will bring clarity to what you are experiencing in the process. Usually, you will receive a considerable amount of that knowledge in my consultation, but I will continually reinforce that knowledge when necessary because it is in your best interests and essential to fully understand what is happening so that you can make intelligent, individual decisions that will affect the rest of your life and the lives of your children's lives. I can also provide compassion for the frustration as the frustration is universal and unchangeable and a part of the process. I can also bring you practicality and realism, when those personal characteristics seem to be in short supply, but absolutely needed in the case.
