6 Types of Cases the Lawyers at Moffett Law Firm Handle
When dealing with a family law matter, finding a lawyer with experience working on similar cases is crucial. At Moffett Law Firm, we have worked on all types of cases, including:
Divorce is one of the most common family law cases we handle. Our professionals are prepared to tackle any divorce case regardless of how complex or contentious. Even if you and your spouse agree to end your marriage amicably, you may disagree about the terms, which can significantly delay the process. Our skilled lawyers at Moffett Law Firm can assist you with the details and legal nuances necessary to ensure that your goals are met and your financial future is secure within the unique facts of your case.
Child Custody and Support
If you are getting a divorce and children are involved, chances are child custody or child support are contentious issues in your litigation. Our dedicated lawyers at Moffett Law Firm can assist you in gathering evidence, conducting discovery, and ensuring that your case is fully prepared for mediation and any hearings necessary to safeguard your position and your children during litigation. We also work to ensure that both you and your case are fully prepared and ready for final trial in the event final trial is a necessary step in your litigation.
Texas is a community property state, which means the court considers the division of any assets or debts accumulated during the course of your marriage owned by you and your spouse. Therefore, these community property assets and debts must then be divided upon the dissolution of the marriage. Texas law states community property assets and debts must be divided in a “just and right” manner. While it may seem straightforward, spouses often disagree about what is considered a “just and right” division of assets. Our talented lawyers at Moffett Law Firm can fight for a just and right property distribution of the community assets and debts accumulated during your marriage. We can help you identify and confirm your separate property assets that should not be subject to division upon divorce. The lawyers at Moffett Law Firm can assist you with gathering evidence to bolster your separate property claim. We can make valuable recommendations for tracing experts and business valuators to assist with the confirmation of your separate property or with assigning or establishing a value to a community property business or entity that needs to be divided during the divorce.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can provide an outline for the terms of a divorce should one occur in the future. These types of martial agreements can also provide guidance on whether a couple intended to create any community property during the course of their marriage. While you and your partner may think you won’t need one, these contracts can outline specific responsibilities and ensure you and your spouse agree on key points. Our lawyers at Moffett Law Firm can help you create this legally binding agreement by assessing your goals and considering every detail so none of your rights are overlooked. We can also help modify and enforce this agreement if necessary.
If you are a mother seeking child support, a father wanting visitation rights, to establish paternity or the right to make important decisions about your child, or a child wanting to know their health history, our experienced lawyers at the Moffett Law Firm can help you file a paternity case.
Order Enforcement and Modifications
If you have a divorce decree or other underlying court order, all parties involved must comply with the terms of these court orders. If one party to a court order, fails or refuses to follow the terms of the court order, you need the assistance of the experienced and knowledgeable lawyers at the Moffett Law Firm to file an enforcement to enforce the terms of the court order and ensure the non-complying party adheres to the terms of the court order.
Sometimes, your needs or the needs of your child may have changed since the date the underlying court order became effective. In these circumstances, a modification of the underlying court order would be appropriate to change the terms of the order to better suit the needs of the parties at the present time. Whether you need help enforcing or modifying an order, the attorneys at Moffett Law Firm can help you manage the process and protect your rights.
