Family law: a diverse and often challenging legal universe

On Behalf of | Sep 18, 2020 | Family Law |

What exactly is family law?

That might seem to be a quickly and simply answered question, but it actually spotlights one of the most widely varied and complex of all legal realms.

And here’s why: People and human relations are centrally at the heart of virtually everything family law pertains to. That fact immediately gives many family law issues an intensely personal and subjective twist.

In fact, and as we note at the proven West Texas law firm of Zollie C. Steakley in Sweetwater, it renders many family law concerns “difficult and emotional.”

Some firms engage in family law via their representation in a few select areas. Others, conversely, back up “full-service” claims with proven advocacy over a comprehensive range of matters.

Our firm is among the latter entities. Moreover, it has diligently represented valued and diverse clients for well more than four decades.

The following matters only partially denote the range of our practice sphere and the encompassing nature of the firm’s work for both individuals and families:

  • Divorce (both uncontested and contested)
  • Dissolution-linked marital property division
  • Child custody/visitation and parenting time
  • Child support and spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • Post-divorce modification and enforcement
  • Paternity and adoption
  • Marital contracts (e.g., prenuptial agreements)
  • Mediation as alternative to litigated divorce

It is understandable that an individual seeking family-linked legal advice might reasonably have a number of questions and concerns. An experienced, empathetic and results-oriented legal team will always be ready to provide candid guidance and goal-driven legal performance aimed at optimal client results.
