Houston Divorce Attorneys

The end of a marriage can be a stressful event, even if the parties are in agreement. Roger G. Jain & Associates handles both contested and uncontested divorces. Divorce raises many questions, and our attorneys are prepared to answer them. Contact us today to see how we can help you protect yourself and your family during this difficult time.

Child Custody and Visitation

The issue of child custody and visitation is likely the most contentious of issues in family law. The child’s parents want what is best for the child, but sometimes the parents have differing views as to what “best” is. One thing is certain though: a stressful child custody battle is not in the child’s best interest.

Roger G. Jain & Associates can also help you with modifications of child custody and visitation orders. Modifications may be necessary if one parent has a significant change of circumstances, such as relocating.

Houston Child Support Attorneys

Our attorneys can assist you with seeking to establish, contest, or modify child support in Texas. Texas law requires parents to support their children, and our attorneys can assist you with navigating the child support process, whether child support is sought in a divorce, paternity proceeding, Attorney General Child Support Review Process, or otherwise. The Texas Family Code provides guidelines that set the amount of child support, but the guidelines are just that — guidelines. If both parents agree to a lower amount, their agreement takes precedence over the guidelines, as long as a judge approves the agreement.

Whether you are seeking to establish, collect, enforce, modify, or defend child support, the attorneys at Roger G. Jain & Associates can assist you with child support issues.

Marital and Prenuptial Agreements

When two people decide to get married, they do not always look to the possibility that the marriage, unfortunately, may not last. A pre-nuptial agreement may be seen as unromantic or evidencing a pessimistic view of the relationship. However, depending on the circumstances, such an agreement may be in the parties’ best interest. In the event of a divorce, these agreements can help keep costs down.

These agreements can even be entered into even after marriage. If you and your fiancé/spouse have questions, need advice, or wish to enter into one of these agreements, please contact us.
