Family Law

Brazoria County Family Law Attorneys

Texas family law cases are often more complex and challenging than other civil cases due to the unique legal issues and nuances of family law regulations in the state. These complexities arise from the fact that family law cases involve deeply personal matters, emotional aspects, and the well-being of children, which all require sensitivity. 

In divorce, child custody disputes, enforcements, and modifications, the one constant that ties these cases together is that your family will forever be changed by the litigation process.

We are committed to helping you face them head-on with honest advice, human support, and experienced legal representation. Our goal is to assist you in resolving your case with optimum results so that you can move forward with security.

Unique Legal Issues in Texas Family Law

Family law can be complex and thus require the knowledge and experience of a proven attorney.

Unique legal issues and nuances can include the following: 

Community Property

Unlike many other states that follow equitable distribution principles, Texas is a community property state. This means that all property acquired during the marriage is presumed to be owned equally by both spouses, regardless of who earned or purchased it. This presumption can sometimes make property division more difficult, especially when separate property (property owned before marriage or received as a gift or inheritance) becomes commingled with community property.

Conservatorship and Child Custody

Texas uses the term "conservatorship" instead of "custody" when determining parental rights and responsibilities. The state's focus is on the best interests of the child, which may lead to joint managing conservatorship (JMC) or sole managing conservatorship (SMC) arrangements. The nuances of these arrangements can be complicated, particularly when parents have disagreements over decision-making authority or parenting time.

Child Support Calculations

Texas has specific guidelines for calculating child support based on the non-custodial parent's net income and the number of children being supported. However, situations can occur where deviation from these guidelines may be warranted, such as when a child has special needs, or the non-custodial parent has additional financial obligations.

Spousal Maintenance

Texas has strict eligibility requirements and limitations on spousal maintenance (also known as alimony). To qualify, the requesting spouse must meet certain criteria, and the amount and duration of payments are subject to statutory caps.
