Richmond Family Lawyer

Legal Services of a Texas Family Law Attorney

At The Law Office of Annie Scott, we love the fact that our clientele is very diverse — probably even as diverse as family law itself. There are many different varieties of family law that we’re happy to explain to you, and below are just a few.

Marriage Law

Marriage law can be very broad. It might include everything from prenuptial agreements, money and property arrangements, and even legal developments in same-sex marriage.

Legal Matters Involving Children

In its broad sense, it may also include legal matters involving children, such as child custody laws (who gets physical custody and how?), visitation and parenting time, and making child support payments (how much child support should you pay?). It will also cover Texas laws regarding international, stepparent, grandparent, and same-sex adoption, including who can adopt and how.

If you wish to know more about state laws and guidelines related to marriages and adoptions in Texas, give us a call or leave us a message. Our dedicated Richmond, TX family law lawyer will be glad to provide quality legal assistance.

Whether you are filing for annulment, going through legal separation, or getting a divorce, the end of a relationship is emotionally draining. The dissolution of a marriage, particularly getting divorced, is never easy.

In general, divorce cases are either uncontested or contested. In an uncontested divorce case, the married couple agrees on how the proceeding will take place. In contrast, if there is disagreement on certain aspects, you will file a contested divorce case. In contested divorces, child custody and other crucial matters are decided upon through court hearings.

You will likely know what a divorce filing is, but you may not know what happens if a couple has a divorce. This is where knowledgeable Richmond, TX family law attorneys can help.

If you need help with your uncontested divorce, call us at The Law Office of Annie Scott by dialing 281-206-8119. We can discuss whether and how to divorce, alimony laws (should you get continuing spousal support payments from your ex-spouse if you make a lot less money than them?), and more.

Domestic Violence

There are many types of abuse covered by domestic violence laws, but they can be pretty tricky to deal with. Abused women and men ​filing for a domestic violence restraining order undergo several court forms and complicated legal procedures.

Domestic abuse cases are often aggressively contested because a permanent restraining order can significantly affect the life of the restrained individual. The legal aid of family law lawyers experienced with domestic violence cases ensures that violating parties get the punishment they deserve.

I care greatly for all of my clients, and I want to ensure you get connected to the right resources if you’re a victim of domestic violence. We can even talk about stalking, restraining orders, or filing any kind of lawsuit both you and I think is best. 

Family law can be divided into more specialized areas, each with their own classifications and particularities. It can easily get complicated, which is why you need and experienced family lawyer to help guide you through it. Call us at 281-206-8119 to schedule a consultation with our Texas family lawyer today.

A Few Ins and Outs of Family Law in Texas

Texas, like every state, has specific laws that may affect your outcome — whatever your case may be. Here are a few of the things you need to know about Texas family law.

Spousal Maintenance

Texas has spousal maintenance instead of alimony, and this is open to you if you can prove you cannot afford to support your minimum needs. But you must also have at least one other qualifier: there’s been family violence, your inability to support yourself is due to you or your child’s disability, or your marriage has lasted more than ten years.


In Texas, the law allows for no-fault divorce, which simply means you don’t need to provide evidence that your spouse is at fault. Thankfully, this law mainly takes into account “insupportability,” which means that if your personalities are different enough, your marriage may be “irreconcilable.”

When it comes to custody, visitation, relocation, or support after a divorce, you may need a lawyer to modify and enforce an existing order. Be sure to call our Richmond family lawyer for specifics on Texas laws.
