Family Law

Confidential Consultation & Compassionate Representation

As a dedicated family law practitioner, Ms. McPherson is keenly aware of the complex emotional components inherent in handling domestic matters. Our attorney and staff members are experienced in the management of a wide range of family law issues, ranging from a routine agreed or uncontested divorce to a more complex custody  proceeding. In any event, our clients have come to expect relatable, trustworthy representation in a non-judgmental and relaxed setting.

At the Law Office of L. Taylor McPherson, we offer the following services for our family law clientele :

  • Divorce: If marital dissolution is imminent, our office can help you sort out the various complexities of this change in family dynamic – including the division of property, spousal support, child support, custody, and visitation. This is often accomplished through court hearings, informal negotiation, or mediation.
  • Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship: In Texas, establishment of custody and visitation parameters occurs by filing a Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (known as SAPCR). Our office is intimately familiar with the procedures inherent in this process, and we can help you determine a plan to best suit the needs of the children involved.
  • Modification: For our clients with family law orders already in place, we offer representation for those looking to modify the original terms. Modifications are available to amend support amounts, change a child custody arrangement, or to alter a current visitation schedule. For clients seeking this service, a material or substantial change in circumstances will be necessary to warrant the change, and our office can help advocate this position.
  • Adoption: As one of the bright spots of family law, we are pleased to offer representation during the adoption process – including step parent adoption, private adoption, adult adoption and adoption through Child Protection Services.
  • Collaborative Law: Known as a no-court, no-litigation option for divorcing spouses, collaborative law aims to take the vitriol out of the divorce process – striving instead for a more amicable, less litigious experience. Parties submitting to the collaborative law model agree to work together as much as possible to reach a settlement on all ancillary matters involved in a divorce proceeding – and must promise to forgo the option of judicial intervention.
  • Cohabitation Agreements: Couples wishing to cohabitate prior to or in lieu of traditional marriage are unfortunately left very legally vulnerable in the event of a break-up. For this reason, we encourage our clients to consider executing a cohabitation agreement in order to delineate property ownership and other matters typically addressed during a divorce proceeding.
