Family Law

Divorce

Whether your goal is an amicable divorce with a negotiated settlement, or if you need a trial to achieve a fair outcome, you need the advice of experienced family law attorneys to guide you through the complicated divorce process. An effective divorce attorney needs to have proven trial experience and have a command of the law involved in complicated property division, child and spousal support, and custody.

Child Custody

For most clients, getting an order that protects the best interests of your children is the most important piece to any family law case. That’s why you need an attorney who hears your goals, has the experience to find creative solutions that work for everyone, and has the skills to stand up for you in court when necessary.

Child Support

Both parents have a responsibility to support their child. Texas has clear guidelines on how much each parents should contribute. Whether you are establishing a first child support order, changing an unfair support order, enforcing an unpaid order, or you need help defending against enforcement, it is critical that you have an experienced family law attorney to stand up for you and your children.

Family Violence

Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating protective orders and meeting the unique needs of clients with cases involving domestic violence.

Our Approach

At Thompson Salinas & McDermott, we believe that an amicable, negotiated process is the ideal way to handle a divorce or custody dispute. Working together with your spouse, partner or co-parent to reach a fair resolution helps insulate your children and takes less of a toll on your emotions and finances.

Unfortunately, sometimes you just need to fight because the other side is not committed to a collaborative approach. When that happens, you need a strong advocate with extensive trial experience who is prepared to stand up for your rights.

We have the litigation expertise and family law experience to handle any situation. You need a lawyer who is going to hear your goals and stay focused on achieving them. That’s what we do at Thompson Salinas Rickers & McDermott.
