Galveston Divorce Attorney

Representation in Divorce Cases

Are you seeking legal help with a divorce? A divorce can be complicated, particularly in cases involving contested divorce, high net worth divorce or a military divorce. Speaking with a Galveston divorce lawyer can give you a better understanding of divorce procedures and what will happen after your petition has been filed. If your divorce is uncontested, a family lawyer can help mediate agreements with your spouse regarding the division of your property, alimony, child custody, child support and visitation. Having an attorney that you can turn to for help whenever it is needed can greatly reduce the stress of legally ending your marriage.

At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we know the emotional turmoil that can result when a marriage ends and we can assist you with a contested divorce, military divorce, uncontested divorce and collaborative divorce. We also provide mediation services to help you work out agreements with your ex-spouse regarding property division, asset division, debt division and spousal support/alimony. If there are minor children in the marriage, we can help you create a parenting plan and resolve any child custody, visitation or child support matters.

Divorce Agreements

When spouses divorce, agreements will need to be drafted regarding any divorce-related issues such as asset distribution, alimony and child custody. The court prefers that ex-spouses work together to create these agreements whenever possible. Once an agreement has been reached, it is submitted to the court for approval and becomes part of the divorce settlement. Changing an agreement at a future point in time will require court approval, including a modification of child support, modification of child custody and modification of spousal support. You will also need to petition the court if you intend to relocate. We can assist you with any changes to your divorce settlement, or help you dispute a proposed change. We also represent clients in cases involving enforcement of court orders, enforcement of settlement agreements, paternity, grandparents' rights, fathers' rights, mothers' rights, domestic violence, spousal abuse, child abuse, orders of protection, parental alienation and adoption.

You can depend on us for dedicated legal representation, excellent customer service and skilled legal assistance with any family law matter.
