Friendswood Divorce Attorney
Information about Divorce and Family Law in Friendswood
Divorce is almost always a very difficult decision, but beyond the personal
and emotional aspects that are involved, the legal issues can be a real
concern. Will you be treated fairly by the court? Will you lose your right
to live in the family home? Will you be able to share custody of your
children? All of these matters must be addressed with the help of a skilled
Friendswood divorce lawyer from my firm. At my office,
Dennis M. Slate, Attorney at Law, I have served my clients throughout the area with great success over
the past decade, and have the honor of having been named as a Texas Legal
Rising Star by Texas Monthly, as well as listed in Top Family Lawyers
in Houston by H Magazine. My firm is committed to providing unmatched
client-care and service to both civilians and members of the Armed Forces.
As a 20 year Army officer, I have the knowledge and insight into military
regulations and law, and how to address any family law matter that is
affected by state and military law.
I serve the Friendswood area in all types of
divorce cases including skilled litigation in a
contested divorce, ensuring your rights are fully protected in an
uncontested divorce, and fighting for your rights in complex cases of
high net worth divorce, as well as providing quality legal counsel in the
collaborative divorce process. Those who are pursuing a
military divorce have challenged that others do not have, and my experience will serve
your interests well. If you have been ordered to
mediation or choose this process to come to an agreement without litigation, I have
the ability to help you get the critical issues resolved.
I provide legal services in any issue involving
spousal support/alimony, as well as
asset division, and
debt division, all of which are usually of great concern in a divorce. If you or the
other parent of your children is planning a move, I can advise you regarding any
geographic restrictions (relocation). As times change, it may be necessary to seek a
modification of child support,
modification of child custody, or
modification of spousal support, all of which must be approved by the court, and how your case is presented
can have a significant impact on the decision. I am proud to have won
consistently against the large, downtown law firms for my clients, and
know that smaller cost is important to them. I can file the necessary
legal actions for
enforcement of court orders or
enforcement of settlement agreements. I also provide legal counsel in any issue involving
fathers' rights, and
mothers' rights. I achieved victory in a recent case against Child Protective Services
for their conduct in removing children, and am personally committed to
protecting the rights of parents in all legal matters.
Family Law: Divorce Lawyer in Friendswood
If you are threatened with or have been the victim of
domestic violence, including
spousal abuse or
child abuse I can take action any time of day or night to get protection under the law with
orders of protection. If you are suffering the effects of
parental alienation we should be contacted to determine what can be done to restore your relationship
with your children through court intervention in this terrible situation.
I am proud to serve parents who are pursuing an
adoption and have helped many parents finally get the child or children after suffering
the long delays that can be part of either public or private adoptions.
Cutting through the red tape and getting the adoption finalized is as
important to me as it is to the parents. I do ensure that your rights
are protected throughout the process.
