Family Law

No one expects to get divorced, and when faced with divorce, you don’t want a lawyer – you need a lawyer.  There is a difference between want and need, and too often lawyers forget that. You need a lawyer who will answer your call, who will listen to your problem, and who will identify solutions to your problem based upon your circumstances. You don’t live your life in a box, and you won’t find solutions to your problems in a box, either. Divorce and family law attorney Trevor Hall compassionately represents clients in all matters involving family law, including divorce, property division, child custody, visitation, child support, and adoption.

Family Law

Divorce

Even when both parties agree it is best to part ways, divorce is traumatic.  Often times, the parties agree on issues relating to the children and the property.  In these circumstances, divorce attorney Trevor Hall represents clients for a reasonable flat fee.  If the parties dispute possession of and access to the children, or there is disagreement regarding the division of the marital estate, then Trevor stands ready to work with you to craft the solution most appropriate for you situation.

Property Division

Assets need to be divided. Texas is a community property state which, generally speaking, means all property you bought with your spouse during the course of the marriage belongs equally to each of you. Courts, however, do not always divide property 50-50.  Extenuating circumstances may exist that the court will take into consideration when making the final order for property division. Divorce attorney Trevor Hall knows how to evaluate your situation and present the court with a proposal for a fair and just division of your marital assets.

Child Custody and Visitation

Child custody in Texas is referred to as “conservatorship.” Courts encourage parents to work together to establish their own parenting plan, including identifying the parent with whom the children will live most of the time, and how much time each parent will spend with the children.  If the parents cannot agree on custody and visitation, however, Trevor has the knowledge and experience to fight for the rights of his clients.

Child Support

Texas law affirms that both parents have an obligation to provide support to their children. Many factors are involved in determining how this is done. Trevor will obtain all necessary financial information to present to the Court to protect the financial interests of his clients.

Modification of Court Orders

After mom and dad divorce, circumstances can change, altering what’s in the best interest of the children.  Perhaps a court order for child custody, visitation, or support needs to be modified due to a material change in circumstance since the original order was made. If you need an order changed, or if need to defend against the other parent’s request to modify an order, then Trevor will work with you to find solutions for you and for your children.

Adoption

Helping a family adopt children is one of the most satisfying aspects of family law practice. Trevor proudly assists in bringing families together at a reasonable flat fee that will not jeopardize the new family’s financial resources.
