The stakes are high when your family is concerned. Whether you’re facing divorce, with or without child custody arrangements, or modifications, it is important to have the help of an experienced attorney who listens to your goals and takes the time to craft legal strategies that work to achieve those goals.
My name is Angela Oaks. I have dedicated my career and my firm, The Oaks Law Firm in Houston, Texas, to providing compassionate and caring service, backed by years of experience and an exclusive focus on family law.
My clients have family law issues, including:
Divorce. Texas is a no-fault divorce state, but sometimes fault has occurred and needs to be addressed. I will look at your situation and explain your options, and the potential outcomes.
Custody (conservatorship) and visitation arrangements. If you and your ex cannot reach an agreement regarding your children, a family court judge will make the final decision about custody (known as conservatorship in Texas) and visitation arrangements. I will be with you, by your side to look out for your interests through the negotiation process, and if agreement cannot be reached, I will be with you in Court as we argue your case and present evidence to help the Judge make an informed decision.
Spousal support (alimony). In some cases, spousal support may be considered as part of the divorce proceedings. I will tell you what may happen in your case, and what you can expect.
Fathers’ DO HAVE rights. It can feel as though family courts in Texas favor the mother when conservatorship/custody and child support are in question, but I have many clients who are fathers and have primary conservatorship of their children and receive child support from the mothers. If you are a father, let’s discuss your options; you have rights and the Texas Family Code protects your interests, too.
I practice family law exclusively, and I have experience with cases similar to yours. If you are wondering whether I can handle your situation, please call me. I can quickly tell you what I can do to help, or point you toward alternative resources. I believe in accessible legal care, and work to keep my rates affordable.
Family matters are complex. To discuss your situation in-depth, please call my Houston office or send me an online message. I will provide my professional opinion as to what you may be facing and how to best proceed. Contact my law firm in Houston, Texas today to get started.
