What We Do
Whether you want to initiate a divorce action or you need to respond in a timely fashion to a divorce petition that's already been filed, we are here to help you. We will file the necessary legal actions to protect you, which may involve a number of complex issues, including property division and retirement benefits.
Child Custody and Visitation
If you have children and are anticipating an upcoming custody dispute or if you are concerned about obtaining a suitable visitation schedule with your children, call our office for an appointment. We are skilled at crafting workable and creative solutions for families. In addition, we will advise you as to which solutions may work in your case and based on your facts.
Are you or your former spouse behind on child support payments? We can analyze your current situation and see where you stand in terms of seeking potential relief from the court.
Whether you are seeking to establish paternity or trying to adopt the child of a spouse, call our office. We are experienced in handling these kinds of issues. Additionally, we are experienced in handling cases in which the termination of parental rights is in a child's best interests and in accordance with Texas guidelines.
Since your divorce decree was finalized, have you or your former spouse moved, taking your child along? Has your former spouse received a substantial increase in income? These issues may present a substantial change in circumstances, warranting a modification of your divorce decree so it accurately reflects the altered custody or child support arrangements. We have a thorough understanding of the Texas guidelines that may affect the outcome of your case.
Premarital and Postmarital Agreements
At the Law Office of Aleta Peacock, we are skilled and experienced in drafting and defending premarital (prenuptial) and postmarital (postnuptial) agreements. We are also successful at defeating such agreements when they are improperly drafted. If you are considering a premarital or postmarital agreement, call our office and arrange an appointment to discuss your needs.
Mediation can be a very effective and less costly approach to divorce. We are specifically trained in family law mediation, and can explain this informal process and guide you through it while protecting your rights. Collaborative law is an alternative to the court system that allows the involved parties to set the terms of the decree on their own. All parties retain their respective attorneys, and neutral professionals are involved as well. We can carefully explain how and when mediation and collaborative law may be used, and whether one of these approaches is appropriate for your case.
During divorce proceedings, a parent's anger can sometimes spill over. When this happens, it can have a negative impact on the relationships between grandparents and their grandchildren. If you've had substantial contact with your grandchildren in the past, and yet now you're being denied access to them as the result of their parents' divorce, call the Law Office of Aleta Peacock for a free and confidential initial consultation.
If you've recently gone through a divorce, you may want to update your will to reflect your new status. We can help you make sure your last wishes are properly documented.
