Issues That Affect Women’s Rights in Family Law
Although men and women are considered equal under the law, family law issues are often experienced differently by different genders.
Children are one of the most contested issues of a divorce, everyone wants what is best for the children, but people usually disagree about what that means. At Skillern Firm, we are committed to the well-being of children and will do everything possible to secure the best outcome for them. We are also highly skilled in mediation and negotiation and will work to resolve any issues amicably, which can make the process easier for any children involved. We can help you with issues such as child custody, child support, relocation, and financial stability after divorce.
Texas is a community property state. Upon divorce, all assets are divided as community or separate. Community property is attained during the course of the marriage and should be divided equally. Any property that individuals attained prior to marriage remains separate and belongs to that person. However, certain assets such as stock bonds and pensions can be challenging to divide. Your attorney will ensure that you are treated fairly and that your financial interests are protected.
Domestic violence is a major breach of your rights. You and your children have a right to feel safe and secure. Skillern Firm has the experience necessary to handle your case with the care it needs. If you tell us about domestic abuse, we will step in immediately to protect you and your family. We can do this by applying for an injunction with the court, which can prevent your spouse from seeing or speaking to you. We can also help to get you to a place of safety. We understand that victims of domestic abuse are often scared to take these first steps. We are here to protect your rights, keep you safe, and lend a sympathetic ear when you need it.
