Divorce Lawyer in Houston: Quality and a Record of Success

Whether you are facing a difficult contested divorce, an uncontested divorce, high net worth divorce, collaborative divorce, or are a member of the armed forces that need quality legal counsel for a military divorce, We can provide you with the highest level of legal counsel. Having served as an Army officer for 20 years, Attorney Slate has great understanding of how military law affects all family law issues.

We provide legal services in mediation, represent clients in all types of legal issues involving child custody, visitation, and child support, which are always extremely important issues in when a marriage ends. If you are concerned about the critical issues of spousal support/alimony, property division, asset division, or debt division, our firm has consistently fought and won against the large downtown family law firms, but at much lower cost to our clients, and are very proud of our exceptional record in court.

If you have concerns about your rights as a parent regarding geographic restrictions (relocation), we can advise you immediately about how the court will address these issues. As times change, it can be necessary to pursue a modification of child support, modification of child custody, or a modification of spousal support. These issues require skilled counsel to get resolved and under control as quickly as possible.

If you need legal representation for enforcement of court orders, such as enforcement of settlement agreements, we know exactly how to move forward and get results for you. In cases of your rights with regard to paternity, grandparents' rights, fathers' rights, or mothers' rights, we are zealous advocates for the rights of parents and have achieved some significant victories in court for parents who have been the victim of actions by Child Protective Services.

If you are a victim of domestic violence, spousal abuse, or your children have been suffering the tragic consequences of child abuse, ensuring that you get immediate orders of protection so that you can have the protection offered under the law is absolutely vital, and we can take action at once if you or your children are in danger. We also provide legal counsel in cases of parental alienation, and take special pleasure in assisting in either public or private adoption, and ensuring your rights are protected throughout the process.
