Protection and Advocacy When It Matters Most

If you are facing a family law matter, an experienced attorney at The Amsberry Law Firm can help. We provide caring counsel and strong representation for people with needs across the full spectrum of Texas family law. In this pivotal and stressful time in your life, you need reliable information to make the best possible decisions. Russell Amsberry is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and can meet with you to talk through your specific concerns, explain the legal process, and begin strategizing to find the best approach to your case. Our family law services include assistance in matters related to:


Divorce

We give you the advice you need whether you and your spouse are in agreement or whether there are complex issues involved. In addition to general divorce matters like child custody and visitation, child support, asset and debt division, and spousal maintenance, we can assist you with issues unique to military divorce, such as custody during deployment and division of important service benefits.

Child custody and visitation

We work with clients to identify and arrange custody agreements that are in the best interests of each individual family, allowing you to maintain the important parent-child relationship.

Paternity

Proving paternity can give you access to or custody of your child if you and the mother are unmarried, divorced, or separated. We can help you establish paternity so that you can seek a court order for custody or visitation.

Child support

Your children need financial support from both parents in order to thrive. We will work with you to secure a support arrangement that meets your children’s needs while remaining financially sustainable for you.

Alimony/Spousal support

If you left the workforce to raise a family, you may have become economically dependent on your spouse. A spousal support order can enable you to maintain the lifestyle you enjoyed during the marriage until you have acquired the skills or training needed to become financially self-sufficient.

Property division

In most cases, assets acquired during the marriage legally belong to both spouses, while anything you owned while single remains your own separate property. We will help you navigate the sometimes confusing waters of calculating assets and protect your rights during the division of separate and community property.

Domestic violence

If you are a victim of domestic violence, we can help you pursue a custody arrangement that protects your children and even seek spousal maintenance if your abusive spouse’s actions impacted your ability to work.

Adoption

We advise individuals and couples on various types of adoption proceedings, including private, agency, step-parent, and relative adoptions. Our experienced attorneys can help you grow your family in a positive and rewarding way.

Post-divorce modification and enforcement

Sometimes life changes after the court issues your divorce order, making it impossible to abide by certain terms such as child or spousal support. In other cases, your former spouse may simply choose to ignore the order. We can guide you through a post-divorce modification and enforcement actions available to you.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Getting a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is one of the best ways to begin your marriage on solid ground. We will help you put together a document that clarifies expectations, provides for children from an earlier relationship, and protects family businesses.

Grandparent rights

In Texas, grandparents can receive possession of or access to their grandchildren if the arrangement is in the children’s best interests. We can help you build a compelling case and pursue your rights as a loving grandparent.
