Family Law

Family matters such as divorce, child custody, visitation rights and adoption are highly emotional in nature. It is easy to make mistakes based on how you are feeling rather than on the facts of the situation and what is best for all parties involved. That is why we recommend that you seek legal assistance to help you manage matters connected with family law.

We handle divorce cases, child custody cases, adoptions, and modifications to original divorce or custody agreements, visitation rights and grandparent’s rights.  If you need experienced legal help in family matters in Jim Wells County and surrounding areas, we would be happy to assist you with your case.

Our legal team will start by carefully assessing all the details of the case. It is important that you help us do so by being fully honest with us. We are bound by legal confidentiality agreements to not discuss anything you share with us, even if you wind up not hiring our attorneys. Knowing the full details of your family situation will enable us to ensure that you are treated in a fair manner.

There are two routes you can take in most cases involving family matters. You can either go to court and let a Judge or Jury decide the future of your case or you can settle out of court. The latter is usually the best option, especially if children are involved. We will work with you to ensure that you get a fair deal in the settlement and make sure that the other party cannot change the terms and conditions of the settlement arbitrarily. However, if you or the other party are unwilling to come to an agreement, we will provide you with the legal representation you will need in court.
