Adoptions have always played a part in The Barrows Firm lexicon. Our attorneys and staff actively participate in the National Adoption Day program every year. Owner and Lead Attorney Leslie Barrows has been on the National Adoption Day committee in Fort Worth for the last few years and served as the event’s chair or co-chair in 2013 and 2014.
Adoptions are a special time for a family looking to adopt and for children waiting to be adopted. Adoptive families and children both need to be represented in a legal capacity and need professional assistance navigating through the adoption process. The attorneys at The Barrows Firm, P.C. provide prospective parents and children the necessary representation.
Child custody disputes can become very difficult very quickly. Determining what is best for the child and best for the parents isn’t always the same. It is the public policy of Texas to ensure that children will have frequent and continuing contact with parents who have shown the ability to act in the best interest of the child; to provide a safe, stable, and non-violent environment for the child; and to encourage parents to share in the rights and responsibilities of raising their children after the parents have separated or dissolved their marriage. Current Texas law presumes that appointment of a child’s parents as joint managing conservators is in the child’s best interest, unless there is a history of family violence involving the parents.
Child support is a percentage of the net income of the non-custodial parent’s income. The percentage varies depending on the number of children for whom the child support is ordered and the number of other children that parent is supporting, such as children from a previous marriage.
The attorneys at The Barrows Firm are very experienced in correctly calculating child support and in discovering income sources.
A divorce can be one of the most difficult events to happen to a person during their life. Divorces in Texas require certain eligibility requirements to have been met before a divorce can be finalized. Our attorneys can help you navigate this challenging life event with the support and experience you would expect.
Enforcement issues occur when custody, divorce, property division and other matters are not handled properly. If you are engaged in an enforcement matter, the attorneys at The Barrows Firm can provide you with the support and ammunition you need to resolve the situation as fast as possible.
Sometimes changes need to be made for good reasons – loss of a job or income source, or maybe a change in the ability to work. Court ordered support matters must be modified properly to ensure that changes are recorded and so that additional fees are not incurred.
