Marriage is a voluntary, private contract between two adults. Although marriage 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.


Deciding to pursue divorce is one of the most difficult and emotional decisions you will ever make. Divorce involves financial matters and requires the parties to address legal issues. As a result, Mr. Seaton can help you to understand the issues involved in divorce and advise you on how to use a rational approach in the divorce process.

Custody and Visitation

When parents separate, it is important to learn about the legal standards that apply. In addition to the legal standards, it is important to know the child custody and visitation options that are available. In many cases, separating couples are able to agree upon custody and visitation. After agreement is reached, the separating couple can seek the approval of the court. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, a family law attorney can provide knowledgeable advice and representation to make the difference.

Child Support

The state of Texas has guidelines for establishing child support, setting support amounts, and recovering overdue child support. Because of these guidelines, it is important to consult with a family law attorney who is familiar with these guidelines. Mr. Seaton is knowledgeable in these areas. If you have questions about the child support laws in Texas, about the rules for child support collection, or about enforcement that apply to your particular situation, contact our firm to schedule a consultation.


Adopting a child can be one of the most beautiful, rewarding experiences in life. Although rewarding, adoption involves diligence, patience, and a complete understanding of the laws that apply to this union between parent and child. If you decide to adopt, call our offices to gain more information on how to turn this dream into reality.
