Do you need a family law attorney?

You may need an expert in family law if you are a Texas resident who is adopting a child, finalizing a divorce, deciding on child custody arrangements or dividing real estate after a breakup. Since state laws have a strong say in matters of marriage and dissolutions of marriages, an experienced attorney can help you wade through the legal processes whether you are tying or loosening the knot.

FindLaw outlines the specific cases when a family lawyer may be of help. First, as already mentioned, when married partners have decided to divorce, each generally hires personal representation. If communication is especially difficult for you and your former spouse, it can be helpful to have an expert on the matters surrounding divorce.

For a more joyful occasion, when families decide to expand by adding children through adoption, attorneys with expertise in this area can help guide the process. According to FindLaw, adoption is complex and "differs according to the type..., where the child is from, variances in state laws, and other factors." Having someone by your side who can sort through the complexities may give you peace of mind when the going seems tough.

One other situation FindLaw points out is in cases of paternity establishment. These may relate to an absent father a child's mother is hoping to secure child support from, or they may relate to fathers who want to take responsibility for their children. If either of these situations fits you, you may want a family lawyer to help walk you through the process.
