Adoption laws in the state of Texas are designed to provide children with safe homes when their birth parents are either unable or unwilling to care for them. Additionally, a step-parent may wish to adopt their step-child and create a harmonious and legal bond for all time. Although these laws work to protect children, their legal intricacies can be confusing and even frustrating for parents undergoing the adoption process. In these situations, adoptive parents may wish to enlist the help of our law office who can handle the paperwork and legal requirements of adoption, streamlining this process so that parents can welcome their children into their homes as soon as possible.
Protecting the best interests of their children is the goal of all parents, but during a divorce or other difficult family legal matters, parents as well as other relatives may find themselves in disagreement when it comes to the well-being of their children. Divorce can bring up emotionally charged issues such as child custody, child support, and visitation rights, all of which can be complicated. Our law office can assist you in working through these challenging legal processes. Visitation and possession time with your child is the most important consideration in a custody order.
When parents separate, the individual retaining primary custody of the children may be owed a certain amount of money for the child's care and well-being. This child support is a fixed figure initially determined by the courts. In the state of Texas, the courts will consult support guidelines to calculate the monetary value of child support, while taking into account factors such as the parents’ e incomes, the number of other children the custodians are responsible for and additional costs such as daycare and/or private school; however, a good lawyer will tell you that guidelines are only a starting place and each situation is unique. Ms. Frost doesn't believe in a "one size fits all" dichotomy especially when it comes to child support.
If you are facing a child support case, you want to experience legal assistance when working through this frustrating, often complicated legal process. Ms. Frost will be able to give you the legal support and confidence you need to handle your child support case.
