Family Law in Fort Worth

Family Law And Divorce
Many people retain the services of a Fort Worth family law attorney for assistance when divorcing. Youngblood Law, PLLC offers the option for collaborative divorce. If you go this route, your attorney will negotiate with the other side on your behalf. The lawyer will help bridge the gap between the two sides so you can reach an agreement without litigating the divorce. You can settle all issues with a collaborative divorce, including child custody, support, and property issues.
If the other party contests the divorce or refuses to cooperate, we can also take the case to court. After presenting the evidence to the judge, the court will decide on all matters pertaining to the divorce. If the breakdown of the marriage was caused by an action such as adultery, the judge can take that into consideration when determining child custody, support, and more depending on your facts. That’s why having a lawyer on your side is crucial.
Your Fort Worth family law attorney can also help you create a child custody and child support agreement. Creating an agreement through mediation or collaboration is often the ideal strategy. This way, you maintain some control over the agreement.
If you go to court, the judge will consider various factors, including the home environment, history of domestic violence, and more. Also, the judge will discuss the matter with your child if he or she is at least 12 years old. While your child will provide input into his or her preferred living situation, that’s just one of the many factors that judges must consider before choosing how to divide time. Because the judge has so much discretion, it’s wise to hire an attorney. Your lawyer will advocate for you and your child in front of the judge.
