Marriage is a voluntary, private contract between two adults. While it is a personal and emotional commitment, it is also a legal relationship that changes the legal status of both parties. Attorney R. Shane Seaton can help you to understand all the legal technicalities of marriage.
Adopting a child can be one of the most beautiful, rewarding experiences in life.

Deciding to pursue divorce is one of the most difficult and emotional decisions you will ever make, particularly if you have children. Divorce also involves financial matters that must be resolved and legal issues that must be addressed. Mr. Seaton can help you to understand the issues involved in divorce and advise you on how to use a rational approach to the divorce process.
Custody and Visitation
When parents separate, it is important to learn about the child custody and visitation options that are available and the legal standards that apply. In many cases, separating couples are able to agree upon custody and visitation issues and then seek the approval of the court. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, knowledgeable advice and representation from a family law attorney can make the difference.
The state of Texas has its own guidelines for establishing child support, setting support amounts, and recovering child support when it is overdue. Therefore, it is important to consult with a family law attorney who is familiar with these guidelines. If you have questions about the child support laws in Texas, or about the rules for child support collection and enforcement that apply to your particular situation, contact our firm to schedule a consultation.
