    Practice Areas

    Adams Law Firm only practices family law, so we can concentrate our efforts exclusively on the areas related to adoption, divorce, custody, and support. If you have any questions about these matters, our attorneys and staff can answer them and give you the best possible representation for your case.

    • Prenuptial Agreements. If you or your fiancée have business interests or assets going into the marriage that you want to keep separate from your marital property, we can help you protect them just in case things don’t work out.
    • Adoptions. Today, adopting a child means filling out a lot of paperwork and risking having it all sent back if anything is filled out improperly. We can take the worry out of the paper process and help move things along.
    • Divorce. Unless you and your spouse are agreeing to take your own things and walk away, divorce is a complex and sometimes messy process involving court hearings and document exchanges. We can help smooth that process and keep it moving.
      • Asset Division. Texas is an equitable division state, meaning you and your spouse must divide property in a way that leaves you both with an equal value of the marital property. Negotiations will likely be required.
      • Spousal Support. Alimony is not automatic in Texas. Spouses must make a showing of why it is necessary after a long-lasting marriage.
    • Child Custody and Support. Parents in Texas are required to support their children through the age of 18. A judge may not order support if both parents agree that support will be paid, but the court will always “reserve judgment” to make an order if one parent fails in their payments.
      • Paternity. If one parent has reason to doubt a child’s paternity or is denying a claim, the court can order a DNA test.
      • Visitation. Both biological parents, as well as the non-custodial parent in a divorce, have a right to spend time with a child.
    • Enforcements. When any court order is not being obeyed by any person, the other party has the right to request that the court enforce the order. The nature of the enforcement is up to the court.
    • Modifications. Things can change over time. Whether a job is lost, a child’s schedule changes, or a move is contemplated, if you need to alter any court order, you must come to court to have the order changed.
    • Contempt of Court. If a party continues to disobey court orders, the other party or the court of its own initiative can use this as a method to compel compliance. A contempt charge can lead to jail time, fines, probation, or all of the above.
    • Child Protective Services. Losing your child to CPS is a heartrending experience. Adams Law Firm will help you take the necessary steps to find out why and work to get your child back.
    • Protective Orders. Court proceedings during family cases are full of negative emotions. Sometimes those emotions spill over into the rest of life. If you need a protective order because of it, we can help you file to obtain one and explain the way to use it.
    • Grandparents’ Rights. All visitation is granted in the best interest of the children. If you believe it is in the best interests of your grandchildren for them to see you, and your visitation has been denied, we can help you try to get visitation rights restored.

    Why You Need an Attorney

    getting a divorce in cumingsGetting a divorce is complicated. It requires filling out a lot of paperwork, gathering information, and meeting strict deadlines. You may not know what is required, and you shouldn’t have to figure it out by yourself. Our attorneys will be at your side throughout your divorce.

    When it comes time to divide property, arrange custody schedules, or negotiate support payments, you should have a skilled legal professional with you to review offers and provide options. If your former spouse has an attorney, it is even more important for you to have your own counsel. Once things like discovery begin to be sent back and forth, you must have someone who can interpret the language and explain what is being requested.
