What Is Family Law?

Family law is an umbrella term that refers to those areas of the legal system that govern family relationships. Although the term is often used in connection with divorce, family law covers a much wider range of subjects. An experienced family law attorney can represent you in any matter affecting your marriage, children, or relations with close relatives.


If you want to adopt a child, working with a qualified San Antonio family law attorney is critical. Adoptions are often more complicated than prospective parents realize. Several legal formalities must be carefully observed, even in relatively straightforward situations--such as a stepparent looking to adopt a stepchild.

Child Custody & Visitation Rights

Child custody can often be highly contentious for parents involved in a divorce or for parents who never married. Every parent wants to do right by their child. But this may lead to disagreements with the other parent over who can provide the best home and guidance for the child.

Child Support

Every parent in Texas has a duty to provide financial support for their minor children. Child support disputes are common in divorce cases. Even parents who were never married may need to establish the non-custodial parent’s obligations under the law.

Divorce is never an easy process. Even when spouses agree the marriage is over and can reach an agreement on certain key issues, a legal process still needs to be followed. And even a relatively low-drama divorce may still have certain disagreements that must be resolved through mediation or litigation.
