Local family law attorneys know the Texas courts

Bobby Barina has more than 2 decades of experience successfully helping clients achieve the goals they seek in the local family court.

The most favorable situation for a troubled family, and one that is supported by Texas law, is when both parents are able to have a healthy and meaningful relationship with their children. Sadly, sometimes it is not possible in cases of abuse.

In today’s society, it is not always the mother that becomes the “possessory conservator” parent in child custody. However, when that is the case, it is important that a father’s rights are properly considered.

Studies show the presence of a father in the life of a child(ren), even in a split family, is beneficial to the welfare of the child(ren).

Only some family law lawyers represent grandparents


Grandparents who wish to stay in a close relationship with their grandchildren can ask for visitation rights if the parents are divorcing. Keeping the focus on what is in the best interest of the child or children is first and foremost in the Texas courts. Grandparent’s rights are often considered important.

There are also instances where grandparents may seek custody of grandchildren, such as when both parents are not able to properly care for their children because of substance abuse, incarceration, physical abuse, or other reasons.

Mr. Barina believes the grandparent relationship is valuable and supports the rights of grandparents.


Temporary spousal support calculations used by family court lawyers

Spousal support, sometimes referred to as alimony, is allowed in Texas, but is restricted with a time limit, usually only paid to a “non-earning” spouse while the divorce is in process. It also differs from spousal maintenance which is support after a divorce, also time restricted, by Texas law, to three years post-divorce.

Determining if you are eligible for temporary spousal support or spousal maintenance is based on a several major elements considered by the court.

  • How long was the couple married?
  • What were the financial contributions of each spouse to the household?
  • Did one spouse provide support to the other during their education or training?
  • What is the levels of education or experience of the spouse requesting financial support?

Your financial stability is a critical part of being able to rebuild or maintain the life you have achieved and to which you are accustomed. Whether requesting support or being sought to support, Attorney Bobby Barina has successfully defended both sides of this sensitive matter. Let him guide you through the process with confidence.

Father’s rights. Grandparent’s rights. Financial support matters. If you have questions on any of these legal issues, Attorney Bobby Barina has answers.
