Receive the Personalized Attention you Deserve from Seasoned Family Law Attorneys in San Antonio, TX
When facing the reality of divorce, especially when children are involved, a person’s entire world can be turned completely upside down. Fear of the unknown can be paralyzing; sometimes so much so that no action is taken during a time when action is crucial. Couples dealing with divorce or separation are concerned about how this kind of major life changes will affect their pocketbook moving forward and how they’ll be able to maintain a relationship with their kids if they’re no longer able to see them every day.
Husbands and fathers are understandably fearful about how divorce will affect their bottom line. They become distraught wondering if their spouse will take everything, leaving them with nothing. They potentially see dollar signs flying out the window with property settlements and child support payments. Often times, children are used as pawns, leaving parents to wonder if they will ever see their children again. It can be overwhelming to try to navigate through these issues alone.
Wives and mothers are also understandably fearful about the financial ramifications of divorce and separation. They are concerned about how they will pay the bills on half the income or whether child support will be enough to cover even half of the needs and expenses of the children. Many times, women feel that they are at a disadvantage in the negotiations of crucial decisions regarding living arrangements and preserving the lives of their children as much as possible.
When parties cannot amicably resolve their differences, often judges are left to decide what should happen. This too, can be a terrifying proposition because parties must leave their fate and the fates of their children in the hands of a stranger. Judges must act fairly under the law and divide the assets and debts comprising a marital estate equitably. When dealing with children’s issues, judges must rule in accordance with the law and in a manner that is in the best interest of the children. Texas law provides a standard visitation schedule that is deemed in the best interest of the children, which provides both parents with meaningful time with their kids.

- Paternity matters – Every rightful parent deserves to be treated as one, but unfortunately, conflict between couples and spouses can lead to questions about paternity, leaving a father feeling stripped of his parental rights. On the flip side of the coin, many mothers find themselves raising their children alone, and without the financial resources to do so. In either scenario, establishing paternity will be critical to the well-being of the child or children involved.
