Galveston Texas Family Law Attorney
Experienced Family Law Lawyers in Southern Texas
Serving Houston, Freeport, Seabrook, Galveston and Surrounding Areas
Texas law requires children's best interests to be considered in a divorce. We take this focus a step further by cultivating personal relationships with our clientele.
We take time getting to know our clients, while listening to their situations and concerns. Child custody, child support and visitation rights are emotional issues. Parents' actions are not always in their children's best interests. At the Law Office of Susan M. Edmonson, we vigorously protect the rights and interests of our clients and their children.

Family Law Attorneys Focused on You
Few issues are more hotly contested than child custody. We are committed to helping you avoid nasty, expensive litigation through mediation. Our law firm's lawyers focus on solutions that are in the children's best interests and acceptable for both parents getting divorced. When litigation cannot be avoided, we aggressively protect our clients in trial and fight for a fair and reasonable custody arrangement.
Child support in Texas is based on both parents' income. We will investigate all assets and sources of income to account for any hidden assets. Our law firm also handles cases involving:
Modifications and Enforcement
If child support, custody or visitation agreements no longer meet a family's needs, we will argue for a modification. This is often granted when one parent relocates, gets a better-paying job or loses a job.
We represent many parents who are late in making court-ordered child support payments. Our firm helps them arrange a payment plan so they can get caught up and retain all their rights and privileges.
Adoptions, Name Changes and Protective Orders
We handle both stepparent and grandparent adoptions, including termination of parental rights. We also represent couples looking to adopt babies through private adoptions. Many clients come to us to change the names of children after divorce, or to legally revert to a maiden name.
We also protect either party with domestic abuse concerns. For the spouse or ex-spouse who is danger, we act quickly to get court-ordered protection. We also represent alleged abusers. Protective orders have very serious ramifications, including loss of hunting and handgun privileges. We will vigorously defend clients.
