Our family law team is committed to providing reliable and confidential legal counsel in all types of family law issues, including divorce,  separation agreements, temporary orders, and issues relating to any children that may be involved in the divorce, such as custody, visitation, parental relocation and child support. We are also able to provide help with fiscal issues that may plague divorcing parties, including the payment of spousal maintenance, the recovery of attorneys’ fees in a divorce, property division and asset division, including determination of separate vs. community property. We have been in practice for over 20 years, and we have the knowledge and experience to assist with any and all types of family law matters. Many law firms do not give sufficient attention to fathers rights. Some fathers hope to gain custody of their children, and others wish to establish paternity so that they can have a say in the child’s upbringing. Without established paternity, a father cannot enforce his right to visitation or possession. At Chernoff Law, we never forget the rights of a father. We believe that both parents rights are important, and we provide strong representation for fathers throughout Texas. We also protect grandparents rights, and, in courts all throughout the State, we help grandparents who are trying to gain access to a grandchild. Under Texas law, a grandparent may have the right to access and custody of a grandchild. We are thoroughly familiar with the applicable law, and have represented both grandparents who desire custody and parents who hope to prevent intrusive grandparent interaction. All too often, people who have gone through a divorce find that, as the years progress, the orders laid out in the decree are no longer workable. You may have been divorced or separated for some time, and during that time,  circumstances may have changed to the point that custody arrangements are not in the best interest of your child, or child support may be insufficient. This may require a modification of court orders. You may no longer be able to afford alimony, or you may need to reduce child support. Whatever the case may be, our firm is ready to represent your needs, even if your divorce has been finalized. Divorce, like all wars, results in collateral damage. Therefore, we always keep the importance of your family in mind. We understand that you need strong, quality representation when you are needing to address issues such as parental alienation, the need to relocate and even domestic violence. We encourage you to pick up the phone and give us a call today if you have further questions or if you would simply like to have a confidential discussion about your situation. We are dedicated to helping clients with all matters of family law and divorce issues so they can find the resolution they deserve. You can be sure that by working with us, you will have an experienced advocate on your side that you can trust.


We represent clients with personal focus on the matters that are most important to them and to their children. Although your case may be able to be resolved outside of court by way of mediation sessions, our firm is also willing to fight for your rights in court if that is necessary. This is why being represented by an attorney with extensive courtroom experience, like the attorneys at our firm, in family law can be a substantial benefit to you. Our legal team is a highly committed group of professionals who will not sacrifice their commitment to excellent client relations and high quality, compassionate counsel. Many family law matters are extremely emotional and difficult for all involved. For this reason and others, it is important to seek resolution quickly to avoid unnecessarily prolonging this difficult process. In many cases, skilled negotiations with opposing counsel can lead to a faster resolution so that our clients can move on with their lives. Our dedicated team invites you to contact us at once if you are considering divorce, or are dealing with another family law matter. Our law office will stand firm on the issues that are of highest importance to you and your family. Please, don’t hesitate to contact Chernoff Law for the representation that you deserve!
