Family Law

Family Lawyer Houston

Family disputes in and of themselves are physically and mentally draining. No matter the type of family dispute our office understands the complexity of legal matters concerning the family. The Law Office of Joseph K. Plumbar is dedicated to providing fair and diligent family legal aid.

We understand a separation or adoption is a complex and long process for you. However, private adoption agencies understand the importance of ensuring legal compliance every step of the way. That is why they often have dedicated attorneys available to provide expert advice and guidance throughout the process. This ensures that families engaging in private adoptions have easy access to legal support whenever needed, making the journey less daunting and more manageable. It is highly advisable for adoptive parents to seek guidance from an attorney throughout the adoption process. This is particularly crucial in cases where international adoption is involved, as it necessitates the expertise of specialized lawyers who are well-versed in international law. Consulting with a knowledgeable attorney ensures that all legal requirements and considerations regarding the adoption are adequately addressed and adhered to. Their guidance and assistance will provide peace of mind and help facilitate a smooth and successful adoption journey.

Guardianship, a legal arrangement where a child is cared for by someone other than their parents without formal adoption, is often opted for by family members in cases where the parents are unavailable or deemed unfit to provide proper care for the child. 

This ensures that the child’s best interests are protected and that they receive the necessary support and guidance they need during this time. Guardianship is a legally intricate matter that should not be taken lightly. Seeking legal advice before proceeding is crucial to protect the best interests of all parties involved.

When a minor child is placed in foster care, it is because their current living situation poses a risk to their well-being. In such cases, the state takes responsibility for the child, acting as their legal guardian. If criminal charges involve, the parents may have an attorney to represent them during this difficult time.

Our office is ready and able to assist in providing legal representation in all areas of family law included but not limited to the following. With over 30 years of collective experience in Child Support, our team of Attorneys and Staff is well-equipped to handle your case. We firmly believe in Houston’s core principle that both parents have a legal obligation to provide financial support for their family. Houston has taken a proactive approach to ensure fairness and appropriateness in child support cases. In order to achieve this, they have developed Child Support Guidelines that take into account a variety of factors. These guidelines serve as a valuable tool in determining what is just and reasonable for all parties involved.

The process of determining parental responsibilities can vary depending on several factors. It can range from a straightforward procedure to a more complex one, taking into account various considerations. This may include assessing the amount of time each parent should have primary responsibility for their family. Child support is an essential responsibility that parents have towards their children. It extends until the child reaches 18 years of age or graduates from high school, even if they are 19 and have not yet graduated. This ensures that children receive the necessary financial support from their parents throughout their crucial development years. It is important to recognize that both parents have a responsibility to support their children, regardless of age, if they are incapable of earning a living and lack the means to support themselves. This duty should be fulfilled to the best of their abilities.
