Little Elm Family Law Attorney

Little Elm family law lawyer

Denton County Lawyer For Divorce, Child Custody, and Parental Rights

Working with the family court system is not something that anyone looks forward to, but it is sometimes necessary. Filing a petition in family court can help you achieve many important goals, like ending a failed marriage, protecting your child's best interests, or bringing a new child into your family. Responding to a petition filed by someone else may be just as important to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.

Whatever family law matters you are dealing with, it helps to have an attorney who can advise and represent you. At the Law Office of Philip W. Moore, Jr., we dedicate our legal practice to serving family law clients in Little Elm and the surrounding areas. We use our knowledge and skill developed through 20 years of experience to help you achieve the outcomes that best meet your family's needs.

Serving You in a Variety of Family Law Matters

There are many situations in which your family life and the law can intersect, and we can help you handle each of them as they arise. We provide legal representation in cases involving:

  • Divorce - Ending a marriage means dividing one household into two, so you will need to address important details including the division of community property and the allocation of parenting responsibilities and visitation time. Factors like spousal support and high-value assets can further complicate the divorce process. We can help you navigate all of these issues on the path to a favorable outcome.
  • Child custody and visitation - When parents are not married, a child custody order is important to define the terms of their parenting arrangements. We can help you understand your options regarding conservatorship and possession and work to ensure that your arrangements provide for your children's best interests.
  • Child support - A child support order is another important piece for unmarried parents, as it defines how parents will share financial responsibilities for a child's basic and extraordinary needs. We can help you secure child support from your child's other parent, or ensure that your payment obligations are fair.
  • Order enforcement and modification - After your divorce is complete or your child support and child custody orders have been established, we can help you take action to enforce the terms and hold the other party accountable for any violations. We can also represent you in a petition to modify an order to account for changes in your personal or financial circumstances.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements - We can help you take proactive measures to protect your separate property and plan for the possible division of community property by establishing a legally binding agreement with your partner, either in anticipation of your marriage or after you have already been married.
  • Paternity - Establishing paternity is an important step for unmarried biological parents to secure their parental rights and make it possible to take legal action regarding child support and custody. We can help you establish paternity voluntarily or through litigation in court.
  • Adoption - Adoption allows non-biological parents, including stepparents and other relatives, to establish a legal parent-child relationship and ensure that a child's needs are provided for. We can help you petition for adoption and navigate the challenges of the adoption process.
  • Domestic violence - Abuse, harassment, and other forms of domestic violence are extremely detrimental to your well-being and that of your children. We can help you prevent further family violence by filing for an order of protection that prohibits abuse and contact between you and the abuser.
