Family Law Cases in The Colony

Some of the most common family law matters involve couples who are looking to end their marriage through divorce. We can provide representation for spouses in these cases, helping them resolve issues related to property division, alimony, tax considerations, and post-divorce modifications and enforcement. We also assist with multiple other types of family law matters, including:

  • Child custody - Parents who are getting divorced and unmarried parents who have separated or who do not live together will need to establish court orders specifying how they will share "managing conservatorship" of their children. We can advocate for children's best interests in these cases, including addressing situations involving substance abuse rehabilitation. We can also address fathers' rights and assist with parental relocation requests.
  • Property agreements - We work with married spouses or those who are planning to get married to create prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that address how issues related to property and finances will be handled in the case of divorce. We also help unmarried couples create cohabitation agreements that protect their rights to shared property and address other financial issues.
  • Adoption - We can help adoptive parents complete the necessary legal procedures to adopt a child, including assisting with the termination of parental rights in step-parent adoption cases.
  • Paternity - We work with unmarried parents to establish legal parentage for a child, ensuring that both parents can share in child custody and that the child will receive the necessary financial support.
  • Child Protective Services (CPS) - If suspected child abuse or neglect is reported to the authorities, CPS may perform an investigation, which could result in a number of consequences, including the removal of children from their parents' home. We can offer legal representation during an investigation or court case, helping parents protect their rights and avoid issues that would negatively affect their relationship with their children.
  • Domestic violence and protective orders - We help those who have been the victims of domestic abuse obtain protections that will prevent them and their family members from being harmed while ensuring that they have the resources they need to leave an abusive spouse or partner.
  • Same-sex family law - We help same-sex couples address unique issues that may affect their families, including custody of non-biological children and rights to property ownership following long-term relationships.
