Child Custody and Family Law in Lubbock, Texas
Child Custody changes from one parent to another | Child Custody by grandparents or other relatives

Original Suits (Paternity)

Sometimes couples who have children are married and sometimes they are not. If a mother and father are married then the custody of the child as well as the support for the child are addressed through the divorce action. If the mother and father are not married then the issues of who has custody of the child as well as child support payments are addressed in what we call in Texas as an Original Suit or a Paternity lawsuit. The law defines those individuals that may bring a child custody and/ or child support lawsuit. How the case is approached depends on the facts of each unique case, and therefore a consultation with a Lubbock family law attorney on child custody issues is necessary. more info...

Child Support and Family Law
Child Support Increase or Decrease | Child Support Enforcement (Collection Child Support Payments)

Typically in Lubbock, child support is normally determined by which parent has primary custody of a child. The parent who does not have primary custody usually pays child support to the custodial parent. Child support is based on a percentage of income under the law. However, many things may affect the percentage of income such as extra help and support provided by the non custodial parent. Thinking outside the box may help increase or decrease the amount of child support paid in any given case. Changes in life may also allow for contesting the initial amount of child support. If the non custodial parent making more money? Is the non custodial parent providing other support that could be considered financial? These are just a few of the issues that a court can consider in deciding whether to change the initial child support amount ordered. This does require going back to court in most cases. more info...

Juvenile Law
Juvenile Law Misdemeanors | Juvenile Law Felonies | Juvenile Law Detention Hearings

If your child is accused of a criminal offense, you need a Lubbock family lawyer who has experience with the criminal system. We believe that family law cases should be prepared from the start for trial, just like criminal law cases. Many times parents think that talking to the police will help. In my experience this is absolutely the wrong approach. If your child is in trouble the first thing to do is hire a lawyer and do not talk to the police. more info...

Lubbock, Texas Divorce Lawyer
Divorces with contested property division issues | Divorces with contested child custody issues | Divorces where child custody and property are agreed

The emotional and financial aspects of divorce can leave one terrified, feeling vulnerable and unable to make good decisions. When we fall in love we never think about what if this does not work out. Rather we invest our time, money, energy in making our lives and marriage work. So what happens when we realize that for whatever reason it will not work? How we deal with the process of a divorce consumes our time and energy. It is draining in many ways. Our goal is to help our clients come through the tunnel and get back to living their lives. We work hard to not only help our clients but to be there for them to answer questions. Consultation with an experienced Lubbock family lawyer can help you decide whether or not divorce is the best decision for your family. more info...
