Family Law, Divorce, and Child Custody Attorneys
The vast majority of cases filed in Bexar County, Texas are related in some way to family law. Perhaps this is not surprising given that a study conducted 2006 showed that there were approximately 3.6 divorces per 1000 residents in Texas, and nearly half of all those divorces included one or more children. If we assume these numbers hold true, that equates to roughly 90,000 divorces annually (the latest census numbers place Texas at a population of over 25,000,000 residents).
A court of law is the only way in which you can legally obtain a dissolution of a marriage, legal separation or other form of terminating a marriage. Courts also have jurisdiction to resolve other issues intertwined in the existing marriage which include custody and visitation rights, division of property of the marital estate, spousal support, child support, and restraining orders. In some cases, these issues are complex and require experience in addition to knowledge. We strive to stay ahead of the ever changing legal trends to ensure our clients are fully informed in these areas.
There are numerous practitioners that practice family law. Searching for an attorney is a challenge and can feel overwhelming during the already stressful challenge of a marriage on the verge of ending. How should one choose counsel then? In our opinion, what truly separates one practitioner from another is how they treat you as a client. An attorney cannot solve all of your troubles, but does play a critical role in how your rights are affected. Our philosophy regarding divorce specifically and family law matters in general is to recognize the difficulty of the process and to guide each client through it as individuals, not as a ‘case.'
