Dallas Family Law Attorney

In the context of marital and family issues, you may need to end a relationship through an annulment or a divorce. You may need to establish a parent-child relationship between a father and his child in a paternity action. In either a divorce or a paternity action, you may seek orders to collect child support and address visitation. In a divorce, you would need to characterize your possessions and assets as community property or separate property. You may want to ask for post divorce support, which is alimony. Let us review your matter by contacting us for an appointment here.

Advanced Directives and Planning Documents

During your life, every person should draft planning documents, which include drafting a will, and preparing advance directives. Advance directives include powers of attorney, living wills, and choice of guardian in case of need. Having the planning documents usually protects you from having a guardianship imposed upon you in the unfortunate circumstance that you become incapacitated. We can usually draft these planning documents in a couple of weeks or less. Contact us to discuss your circumstances here.

Dallas Probate Attorney

When a close relative dies, if there is a will, it should be filed for probate. If there is no will, a court must determine issues of heirship, meaning who would receive an inheritance from the person who has died. We are creative and experienced in handling estates with or without a will, and would be pleased to review your situation. Remove the mystery and have your questions answered by contacting us here.
