Divorce — Even in emotional circumstances, a divorce lawyer can resolve your divorce through mediation, allowing you a strong voice in the outcome. But we are also prepared to take your case to court if that will provide the best resolution. We handle divorce cases involving a broad spectrum of clients, from those who are struggling financially and are facing divorce and foreclosure of their home to clients who have significant assets and property which they need to protect.

Child Custody – Texas family law courts always decide child custody and visitation matters “in the best interest of the child.” At the law office of Arthur Augustine, we share the court’s focus on the best interests of the children and take satisfaction in our ability to help clients achieve fair child custody solutions that favor quality time spent with each parent. We encourage our clients to keep in mind that the manner in which child custody disputes are resolved can significantly affect their children — especially when they put the children in the middle. Texas Child Custody Law
Child custody or visitation modification - Family courts in Texas use an extremely high standard in determining if the modification of an existing child custody or visitation order is warranted. A parent requesting the modification of custody or visitation must demonstrate a substantial change in circumstances that affects the welfare of the children, such as child abuse or neglect, chemical dependency problems or other serious concerns.
Child support modification – Child support orders may be re-examined every three years, or when one party requests a review as a result of a change in circumstances. If the income of either parent has significantly increased or decreased, or if the percentage of time spent with each parent has significantly changed, and such change would result in at least a 10-percent increase or decrease in child support obligations, the court may modify the existing child support order.
Adoption - We understand the frustration of such a lengthy and arduous process when the adoption of a child is at stake. However, if the reward at the end is that child entering your household or taking the “step” out of stepparent, then every step was worth it
