The firm represents clients in San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Austin, Jordonton, Fredericksburg, Floresville and Seguin, and towns throughout Bexar and surrounding counties in Texas.
While every client has unique circumstances, Texas State and Federal laws define the options available to resolve your legal issues. One area with a distinct difference in applicable law is military divorce and separation. Different from civilian family law and divorce cases, a military divorce, including related issues of child custody, support, division of property must follow the dictates of federally enacted legislation, the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA).
Known for quality legal advice and guidance, our San Antonio law firm also assists clients at hearings and before the federal court in broad range immigration cases involving visas, citizenship, naturalization, political asylum and deportation.

Dissolution of Marriage in Texas
If you live in Texas and wish to file for divorce, you must be a resident of the state for six months and a county resident for 90 days. Either party can obtain a divorce on a no-fault basis by stating that there are “irreconcilable differences” between the parties. And as long as both parties are in agreement regarding the divorce, they can stipulate in writing that the marriage be terminated. Couples who have been married for a short time, do not have children or significant amount of assets or debts and agree to end their marriage can do so without undue stress or expense.
On the other hand, a contested divorce, one in which the parties dispute issues such as custody of children, visitation, child support and spousal maintenance and division of assets and debts, can result in emotional turmoil for the entire family and a potentially long and costly legal battle.Learn More
