What type of Texas family law issues does Jackson, Landrith & Kulesz, PC handle?
We handle a variety of family law issues in Arlington. This includes:
Adoption Many people wish to grow their family by adopting a child, but the complex legal issues can hinder or stop the process entirely. If you need help navigating a private adoption, or adopting your spouse’s child or a child from the foster care system, we are here to manage the legal process so you can focus on celebrating the new addition to your family.
Child Custody & Visitation Nothing is more important to you than your children, so we aggressively pursue all child custody and visitation issues. We can help you establish paternity, or build a strong case for custody. We also understand the legalities surrounding enforcement proceedings and post-judgment.
Divorce & Annulments Ending your marriage is never easy, but we can handle the legal aspects of divorce or annulment allowing you to prioritize your emotional well-being. No matter how complex your case, we can stand beside you throughout this painful process.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are an important part of ensuring you maintain your financial health during and after a marriage, as well as provide for children from a previous relationship. We can help you draft these documents and provide all counsel related to these agreements.
Restraining Orders If your spouse, former partner, or other family member threatens, intimidates, assaults, or otherwise abuses you or your children, you need someone who can stand up for you and ensure you get the protection you need. We can help you keep your family safe.
Is there any way we can avoid going to court in our family law case?
Yes. You can opt to attend alternative dispute resolution in your family law case, or the judge may require you attempt mediation or another out-of-court method before continuing to trial. In divorces and custody cases, especially, mediation is the most common option. In divorce mediation, a neutral mediator works to help you and your former spouse come to an agreement on property division, child custody, and other matters. We attend these mediation sessions with you, and guide you through the process.
Other options available include arbitration, a mini-trial, summary jury trial, or a private hearing. Another option some people choose is collaborative divorce. This type of divorce utilizes specially trained collaborative law attorneys who agree to help the couple settle the dispute out of court. However, both parties must agree to use this option; if one party decides to pursue a trial, both will need to find new legal representation. In our experience, many family law cases settle in mediation or another out-of-court agreement. Some, however, will require taking the dispute to court. We look at every case on an individualized basis, and can help you understand the best option to ensure the outcome meets your needs.
