Divorce · Child Custody · Spousal Support · Complex Property Division

From our Dallas law office, our family law attorneys help clients throughout Dallas-Fort Worth with all types of family law matters, including:

Divorce: We encourage our clients to resolve divorce issues through settlement rather than trial, using negotiation or divorce mediation. When our best efforts at settlement efforts fail, or in cases where settlement is not appropriate, we are fierce advocates for our clients in family court. We have extensive experience representing either spouse in divorces where one or both spouses have a high net worth.

Child custody and visitation: Care and custody of the children is often the most high-conflict part of a divorce. We take the time to make sure our clients understand Texas law regarding child custody and have the necessary information to make sound decisions about custody and visitation arrangements for their children.

Property division: Texas is a community property state. More severe financial consequences can result if a lawyer or client misunderstands the definition of community property and the laws regarding division of marital assets. If you have significant assets or property, you want a divorce lawyer who is skilled at identifying and valuing complex property Complex Property Issues and who can trace hidden marital assets and uncover financial fraud. We work hard to help you receive your fair share of the marital assets in a divorce or separation.

Child support and spousal support: In straightforward cases, calculation of child support can follow the Texas Child Support Guidelines. In complex cases, you may need attorneys who can make compelling arguments for upward or downward deviations. Spousal support is a more flexible decision and can interrelate to the spouses' agreements regarding property division.

Modification of divorce orders: Changes in a parent's work schedule, a move by one of the parents, child abuse or neglect resulting from an addiction, or a teenage child's wish to live with the other parent may warrant modification of a child custody and parenting plan. Disability, job loss, or a promotion resulting in a significant increase or decrease in a parent's income may require a change in child or spousal support. We can help you with any request to modify a divorce decree.

Prenuptial and post-marital agreements: Diana S. Friedman is well-known and respected for her creative and strategic drafting of prenuptial agreements and marital property agreements. These agreements allow spouses to protect separate property, preserve assets for children of a prior marriage, and agree upon property division, alimony and other financial issues in the event of a future divorce. They must be crafted with care.

Enforcement Actions: We handle enforcement actions such as motions to enforce visitation, compel payment of support, and comply with other terms of divorce decrees and family court orders. We also defend individuals facing enforcement actions.

Domestic Abuse and Protective Orders: If you are being abused, or have been accused of domestic abuse or assault, we will protect your interests with motions for protective orders and restraining orders or defenses against these motions.
