- Child Protective Services: If CPS has come knocking on your door, you need legal representation from an aggressive attorney who knows how to protect your rights and keep your family together. Consult with our family lawyer in San Antonio if your child has been taken from you or if CPS has threatened to take action against you.
- Child support: Every child is entitled to financial support from both parents. Our firm represents parents on either side of a child support dispute. Whether you are seeking financial support or being asked to pay it, we’ll make sure the final order meets you and your child’s needs.
- Enforcement: Do you need to get the court involved because your child's other parent continues to miss support payments? Our attorneys can help you petition the court for enforcement!
