Legal Services We Can Provide

Family law encompasses many different issues, some of which often stem from divorce but can also arise separately from it. Regardless of your need for legal service, the attorneys at the Law Office of Mark M. Childress are committed to providing the best possible legal representation.

Our legal services can address a number of family law issues, such as the following:

  • Adoption – The process is often long and difficult to complete, which is why many people turn to professional legal counsel for guidance.
  • Child Custody – Parents often disagree on who should have custody of their children, leaving this decision for the court to decide.
  • Child Visitation – Even after custody is established, parents can disagree on how much access to the child the non-custodial parent has.
  • Divorce – Divorce can encompass a variety of family law issues, which make it complicated enough for most people. Though, a particularly contentious divorce will require experienced counsel to ensure a client is fairly treated by the process.
  • Modifications – Sometimes changes must be made to spousal support, child custody, visitation, and other court orders.
  • Paternity – When a child is born outside of marriage, the biological father’s paternity isn’t assumed. Instead, paternity must be legally established by a judge before a father can petition for custody or visitation with his child.
  • Property Division – A divorce will involve the division of the couple’s assets, which can be uneven. Having an attorney can make a difference in getting a fair portion of your marital estate.

If you require legal assistance for any of these issues, reach out to the Law Office of Mark M. Childress for help. Our family law attorneys in Denton are capable advocates for our clients, which means we may be able to help with another family law matter you don’t see described above.
