Few things are more personal than divorce, adoption, child custody and asset division. At Perry & Shields, LLP, we treat these matters with the discernment and respect they deserve.

Broad Services, A Personal Touch

Family law can be complex, with intertwining issues that touch all aspects of a person's life and family. Our attorneys will sit down with you and take the time to understand your particular situation and all the nuances involved. We help families find peaceful solutions to their family law issues. We will make recommendations based on your goals and comfort level. Our services include:

  • Divorce And Legal Separation
    Whether you would like to pursue a divorce or legal separation depends on a number of factors. We will walk you through all your options under Texas law and tell you what to expect. We can pursue solutions through collaborative law, mediation, or the traditional courtroom route if necessary.
  • Child Custody And Visitation
    Parental rights are a common source of anxiety for our clients. We will demystify this process and explain the arrangements that are available to you, including sole managing conservatorship and joint managing conservatorship.
  • Child Support
    We will advocate for the best interests of your children, as well as your best interests as a parent. Child support arrangements should be fair and equitable and that is our goal.
  • Division Of Assets
    Texas is a "community property" state, which means that marital assets are not split down the middle in a divorce, but rather allocated according to what a judge believes is fair. We will represent you vigorously in these proceedings and will defend your best interests when it comes to dividing retirement funds, real estate, oil and gas rights, spousal maintenance, and more.
  • Modification Of Orders Affecting The Parent-Child Relationship
    When circumstances change, the old terms of a divorce order may no longer be sufficient. We can help you modify an existing order affecting the parent-child relationship in order to better match the current state of your life.
  • Paternity Actions
    We pursue paternity tests for all cases that warrant it, including fathers trying to establish parental rights and mothers seeking child support.
  • Adoption
    We can help with all kinds of adoption cases, but have particular experience with stepparent and grandparent adoptions.
