Legal assistance is crucial for military families

It is no secret that military life is hard. The men and women of the armed forces endure grueling exercises and training programs in order to achieve the level of fitness and dedication required by the military, and then they are sent to different bases or deployed to foreign countries in order to defend the freedoms we hold so dear. Unfortunately, as difficult as the working conditions are for someone in the armed forces, the circumstances of their home lives can be equally difficult.

Man claims his custodial rights were infringed upon

If you have gone through a divorce and the child custody agreement between you and your former spouse has been finalized, you may think that your child custody issues are a thing of the past.

An overview of divorce in Texas

Texas is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that couples can divorce without claiming or proving that one member of the marriage directly caused the issues that led to the divorce (such as committing adultery or cruelty).

This officially makes same-sex marriage the law of the land, but some states are hesitant to adopt the ruling without a fight. Texas arguably stands at the forefront of these reluctant states, with our state's Attorney General vowing to be a voice for the defense of religious beliefs.
