“Should I represent Myself?”


Why you really need to have an experienced family law attorney represent you for an equitable resolution of divorce, child custody or any other family law issues.

Modify Child Custody


Just like child support can be modified. Child Custody agreements can change as the child grows older or parents situation changes…

Legal Mechanics of Child Support


What you think you know about Child Support CAN hurt you! Find out the specifics and legal mechanics of your specific situation.

Common Law Marriage


Common Law Marriage is sometimes a confusing situation. Although you can have a Common Law Marriage there is no such thing as a Common Law Divorce. Some of the interesting things related to Texas Common Law Marriage include:

  1. No Time Limit on Common Law Marriage.
  2. If you Live Together can be considered Common Law Marriage.
  3. If you “held yourself out” to be married.
  4. Introduce yourself as husband and wife to other people.

Problems occur if you buy property together like real estate or cars and this property is in the only one person’s name then you might find yourself talking to a divorce attorney and having to get a real divorce.

How Do I Protect Myself Financially


We’ve talked about Spousal Maintenance or Alimony in a previous video. But why are finances really important…

  1. You may or may not be the person who kept the financial records. If not … educate yourself about your families situation … look at bank accounts, retirement accounts, property, taxes, stock accounts, debts or other things that might come into play.
  2. Always talk to a Family Law Attorney before announcing you are thinking about divorce.
  3. Find the best approach and the right time to announce your intentions.
  4. Our goal is to keep as much peace in your family as possible and be prepared for the unexpected.

Top 4 Divorce Mistakes to Avoid


When considering divorce or already in the midst of one … don’t make these mistakes.

  1. Making poor decisions out of panic, guilt or greed.
  2. Not knowing the family’s financial situation (debts and assets).
  3. Not following the order(s) of the court.
  4. Lying to your attorney.

Why keep a Journal?


Keeping a journal or records is a great tool for what is going on in your life and for the judge to see. Your dated records are valuable in counteracting allegations by your spouse.

Spousal Maintenance


In the State of Texas alimony is known as spousal maintenance and may be available to an ex husband or wife depending on the situation.

I am compassionate and I strive to educate clients about Will planning and the probate process and I continue to closely communicate with clients all along the way.
