Fort Worth Family Law Attorney Serving Tarrant County

Legal cases that affect family members can be very complex, stressful, and emotional. In most cases, these situations will involve married spouses or unmarried parents, and they can have a long-term impact on the relationships between parents and children while also affecting other family members. The decisions made in family court can be highly consequential, and they may affect the amount of time a parent will be able to spend with their children, a person's ability to support themselves financially, and multiple other areas of the lives of a person and their family members. Determining the best way to approach these matters is not always easy, which is why it is crucial for anyone involved in a family law case to have representation from a compassionate, experienced attorney.

At Hatton & Hatton, PLLC, we know the difficulties that many people and families face when they become involved with the legal system. Family court can be a confusing and intimidating place, and simple mistakes or failure to follow the proper procedures can prolong the legal process, resulting in additional expenses and potentially affecting the outcome of a case. Our goal is to take as much uncertainty out of this process as possible for our clients while providing strong representation to help them achieve their goals.

Legal Help With Issues Affecting Families

We can provide assistance in multiple types of family law cases, including:

  • Divorce - Many family court cases involve situations where one or both spouses in a marriage decide to end the relationship. We can provide representation to ensure that spouses meet all legal requirements when filing or responding to a divorce petition. We can then assist with resolving all legal issues that must be addressed before a marriage can be dissolved, including negotiating property division agreements or determining whether spousal support will be appropriate. We can provide assistance with both uncontested and contested divorce cases, as well as high net worth divorce matters involving complex financial issues.
  • Child custody - A married couple will need to make decisions about the custody of their children during a divorce, and unmarried parents may need to address these issues as well. We can help parents negotiate parenting agreements that address how they will share conservatorship of their children as well as the visitation schedules for each parent. We can also help parents determine their options for modification of child custody when necessary.
  • Adoption - There are many situations where parents may wish to add to their family by adopting a non-biological child. Certain legal procedures will need to be followed in these cases, and a number of requirements must be met to ensure that the rights of the biological and adoptive parents and the best interests of the child will be protected. We can assist with adoptions of children through private agreements or adoption agencies, as well as adoptions of stepchildren by stepparents.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements - Couples can enter into legal agreements that will allow them to decide how issues related to their property and finances will be handled in the event of a divorce. We work with intended spouses to draft and negotiate prenups before getting married, and we also provide representation for spouses who are looking to create postnuptial agreements that will address issues such as ownership of family businesses, spousal support, and division of different marital assets.
