Types of Family Law Cases We Handle
Working through a family law issue can be one of the most difficult experiences of your life. During this time, it is beneficial to have an advocate on your side taking care of the legal details, allowing you to focus on you and your family.
At Smith & Vinson Law Firm, our Williamson County family lawyers offer representation for the following family law matters:
- Divorce: A divorce can be contested (the parties do not agree on how issues should be settled) or uncontested (the parties do not have any disagreements about resolving issues). Regardless of the situation, it's essential to receive counsel from an attorney who can ensure that your rights are protected.
- Child custody: Legal referred to as conservatorship in Texas, custody can be decided in several ways. One parent may be the sole managing conservator (they alone have the right to make legal decisions concerning the child's upbringing), both parents may be named joint managing conservators (they each have parental rights and duties), or one parent may be the possessory conservator (they do not have the right to make legal decisions but may be granted visitation).
- Child support: Various factors are considered when calculating child support payments, such as the number of children, the non-custodial parent's net income, and the living expenses for the children. The amount decided on must be fair for the paying spouse and meet the children's financial needs.
