Cases We Handle 

Agreed Divorce

Not every divorce needs to be a drawn-out battle for power. Some couples simply agree that they aren’t meant to be together and settle for an agreed divorce.

However, even if you and your soon-to-be-ex have agreed to proceed without animosity in the process, it’s always a best practice to have a lawyer on your side. Even the most amicable of divorces can turn contested quickly when an unexpected issue arises. Having a divorce lawyer ready to help when any complications occur ensures that your divorce will run as smoothly as possible while not breaking the bank with lengthy negotiations.

Contested Divorce

Every divorce contains different circumstances, and not all couples are willing to have an agreed divorce. When you and your spouse have grievances about property distribution, child custody, spousal upkeep, or child support, you have promptly placed yourselves in contested divorce territory.

We focus on helping you get through the trials and tribulations that contested divorces can bring. We assist heavily in:

  • Negotiations
  • Mediation
  • Support during the final trial
  • Protecting your rights throughout the process

We are a team that is equipped to handle complex issues and are ready to help you fight for what is yours.

Child Custody

Child custody is one of the most important areas of your divorce. No matter your situation, putting your children’s needs first is paramount. The rules for child custody in Texas call for the courts to pass judgment based on the child’s best interests. The decision isn’t one that is black and white and can have several outcomes based on the supporting evidence provided to the courts.

Remember, a child custody case is a lawsuit where one parent is suing the other to become the primary caregiver for the child. This is an extremely complex situation and requires the help of a child custody-specific divorce lawyer who can help you achieve what’s right for your children.

Child Support

Since our conception, we have focused on helping clients craft clear and fair child support agreements. We can help you get through your child support case with our extensive knowledge of Texas child support law.

Putting your children first is our priority too, so trust us to help you create a plan that allows them to live comfortably after the divorce decree is signed.

Fathers’ Rights

Fathers often feel that their best interests are discounted in regard to maintaining an ongoing and meaningful relationship with their children. This is an issue that arises for both unmarried as well as divorced fathers. These fathers are provided equal rights and responsibilities for their children under Texas law which they may have to fight for through legal action.

Marx, Altman & Johnson faithfully represents fathers in child custody and support cases.
