Resolving Complex Divorce Issues

If you are seeking divorce, legal representation is critical, particularly if children and property are involved. Complex issues can arise involving spousal support, child custody, visitation, and the distribution of property, particularly in cases of military divorce. Randy Wilson and Kristin Postell employ tenacity and aggressiveness to effectively protect your assets and your rights throughout the divorce process.

Community Property Division In Texas

At the time of divorce, the state of Texas presumes that the property acquired during the marriage by either spouse is community property and as such divided equally. Marital property is not always split down the middle, however, and in situations where the division of property is not equal or fair, an experienced family law attorney can fight to protect your property rights and seek a fair resolution. In some instances, an unequal property division may be warranted based upon the circumstances. As experienced divorce and family law attorneys, we can effectively assert your rights to ensure you recover the assets to which you are entitled under the law.

Child Custody And Support

By default, both parents have an equal right to the custody of their children — whether the parents are married, divorced or unmarried. While this may seem simple in the abstract, determining the child’s living arrangements and visitation after the parents separate, divorce, or cease living in the same household can often be the cause of tremendous dispute. Other issues regarding children affected by divorce and separation include the amount of child support paid to support the child’s development, as well as visitation rights.

We are experienced in obtaining the best results for parents and children, based upon the specific circumstances of the case.

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal support or spousal maintenance (commonly known as alimony) may be awarded to either spouse for financial support while the divorce is pending and in some instances after the divorce has been finalized. The payments are calculated to assist a spouse financially when making the adjustment to separate households. Our experience in family law can effectively accomplish your needs during this process.

Enforcing And Modifying Existing Family Law Orders

Once the court issues a divorce decree or court order, it is up to the parties involved to enforce its terms when their ex does not live up to their obligations in child support, child custody, spousal support or division of assets. We can help you seek compliance with vital components to avoid putting yourself or your children in financial peril.

Other times, a child support, visitation, or child custody court order can become impossible to maintain or fail to be in the children’s best interests. When a modification is necessary, or if your ex is seeking a change that you oppose, our attorney will vigorously represent your position.

Adopting A Child

Adoption is a joyous occasion for your family, but it is also a legal process that requires careful document preparation and assurance that the child’s biological parents will not stand in the way. Kristin Postell has ushered numerous families in the Abilene area through the adoption process. Whether you are adopting your stepchildren or adding a new child to the family, let us help you avoid pitfalls and delays.

Grandparent Access

There are certain situations where grandparents are entitled to access to their grandchildren, and in some instances, custody. Randy Wilson and Kristin Postell have represented many grandparents in these situations.
