Representation For Other Family Law Concerns
In addition to divorce and custody concerns, Allison handles a range of other family law matters, including:
- Adoption — Most of the cases Allison handles are stepparent adoptions, where an individual legally adopts his or her spouse’s child. These situations can become more complex than they initially appear, requiring assistance from an experienced lawyer. In many situations, the adoption process may involve termination of the parental rights of a biological parent. No matter what you are facing, she will advocate for your rights and interests at every step.
- Temporary restraining orders (TROs) — TROs are signed by a judge and put a stop to any decisions or legal matters until all the evidence can be presented in court. A TRO can be used in divorce proceedings and other family law matters to keep a spouse from liquidating marital property or making major decisions regarding a couple’s children. TROs can also address domestic violence or harassment issues, ordering one party to stay away from the other. Allison can help request or enforce these types of orders.
- Child support — Typically in Texas, child support is determined by calculating each parent’s income based against their custody time. Sometimes, however, it may involve exceptions, particularly when children have disabilities, need additional medical support, have special educational needs or are involved in extracurricular activities. In these circumstances, Allison can help ensure that the court considers the needs of your children.
- Enforcement of custody — Failure or refusal to comply with court-ordered custody arrangements by either spouse is not permitted. Enforcement actions can be taken by the court, sometimes with criminal consequences. Allison can advocate for your interests in enforcement matters. If your custody agreement must be changed, she also can help request a modification.
