I do not have enough positive things to say about Randy Michel and his office. After my father passed away, I had no idea how to handle an estate or where to even begin. Randy and his staff guided me through the entire process with ease. They were not only kind and compassionate but very helpful and knowledgeable. They were very communicative with me throughout the entire process. I am very glad I went with Randy and hope that many others do as well.

We were forced to have to retain an attorney in the state of Texas for a custody dispute. Randy and Andrea went above and beyond and we were successful! The issue was not only intrastate BUT also complicated and time sensitive. I would recommend them to anyone!

Support in Every Aspect of Your Divorce

                 Property Division

Texas is a community property state. Property owned before marriage or given to you as a gift is considered separate property. Meanwhile, assets acquired during the marriage are presumed to be community property. They will be divided into a "just and right" division, using fair and equitable guidelines. We can review your property to determine its classification.

              Spousal Maintenance

We understand the financial hardships associated with divorce. State law places strict regulations on "spousal maintenance," known as alimony in other states. We represent clients facing either side of the issue — those pursuing alimony and those obligated to pay support. We evaluate every aspect of your unique situation, including Social Security issues, to provide guidance tailored to your needs.

Typical spousal maintenance in Texas is 3 years for marriages that lasted 10+ years

Here For College Station and Bryan Clients

Mr. Michel believes in providing honest, compassionate representation to help your family come to a resolution as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Child Support Modification Can Improve Your Family's Quality of Life

Years after a divorce, parents may take on new careers and experience a change in income. A child may have ongoing needs that must be met, like daycare or medication for health conditions. As children age, they will likely require more financial support for schooling, educational activities, and health needs. These changes can all justify the need to modify existing child support agreements. 

Mr. Michel can draft robust support modifications on your behalf so child support payments are more in line with your and your child's current needs. Contact our College Station office today if you would like our attorney to review your child support agreement.

Grandparents Have Rights Too 

After a divorce, some parents may restrict their children from seeing other family members, like grandparents. Under Texas law, a court can authorize grandparents' visitation rights if it's in the best interest of the child. Texas law does not give grandparents absolute visitation rights

If a parent is abusive, neglectful, incarcerated, or incompetent, a grandparent can make an argument to the courts that the child may be better off under their care. If you're concerned for the health or safety of your grandchild, our legal team can petition the courts to give you visitation rights or guardianship. Contact us today to see what our College Station law firm can do for you.
