The Field of Family Law

Many family law cases are related to one another. For example, cases involving paternity tests will likely also involve child support, the same way child custody will come up in a case of divorce. That's why family lawyers' specializations, like those of John C. Pavlas and Marshall Davis Brown, TX family attorneys, encompass many – if not all – of these roles. Here is the general scope of family law.

Divorce requires a balance between being aggressive and being sensitive. It takes a special kind of lawyer to minimize conflict – and therefore, emotional trauma – while still standing firm. Lawyers can help with anything from divorce planning to prenups to property division.

Family Violence
This is another sensitive field of family law – it requires both an emotional understanding/support system as well as aggressive legal representation in order to be effective.

Either a father or a mother can bring about a law suit demanding an establishment of paternity. A good lawyer would be able to represent either party and link the results to any further action, such as child support and visitation rights.

Some situations require that the previously administered child custody, support, or visitation orders be modified. This requires an expert counsel in order to establish that the modification is within reason for both parties. It's important to have a good lawyer who can seamlessly guide the client through the process and who is familiar with the stipulations of modification.

Mediation is a great way for families to resolve issues without going to trial. However, effective mediation services require an in-depth knowledge of the various settlement options in divorce and mediation.
