A Considerate Divorce Attorney with Decades of Experience
Bryan-College Station Divorce Modification Lawyer
The significant emotional energy and love you invest in another person and maybe even children can seem to implode when you break up or dissolve your marriage, magnifying even the simplest issue or disagreement. Our Texas legal team understands the substantial hardships and stress associated with divorce litigation. We are committed to pursuing creative resolutions that benefit all parties, but especially the children.
At the Law Office of Randy Michel, we provide comprehensive divorce litigation representation to clients in the Bryan-College Station area and those in surrounding counties. We listen to our clients and conduct thorough case preparation to ensure our representation is tailored to their unique needs. We strive to guide our clients through the process as seamlessly as possible. Our comprehensive divorce litigation practice includes leveraging our extensive experience to help clients achieve their goals for:
- Family law matters
- Property division
- Spousal support/alimony
- Child support and custody
- Estate planning
Mediation, Litigation, Trial
Our legal team is directed by College Station divorce attorney Randy Michel, who has handled thousands of contested and uncontested divorces. With more than 37 years of experience, including several as a judge, more than 26 years as a Board Certified civil trial attorney, and more than 23 as a certified mediator, he possesses sophisticated divorce experience.
As a certified mediator, attorney Randy Michel understands the importance of collaboration. Most judges require mediation before hearing and deciding a divorce case. When you and your partner can come to an agreement that benefits everyone, you have more control over the outcome of your divorce. If mediation is not the answer, we will zealously advocate to protect your rights and obtain the best possible outcome through litigation or trial.
When a substantial change affects your circumstances, you may pursue a post-decree modification. These post-decree changes can apply to:
- Child support and custody
- Spousal maintenance
Substantial and material (significant) changes of circumstances typically include work, health and scheduling issues. If you or your ex-spouse experiences job loss or possibly spends less time with the children, or remarries, or your teenage children incur significantly more expenses than when they were toddlers, you may pursue a modification or be a participant in one. It is important to discuss modifications with a qualified lawyer as there are many restrictions.
When one parent wishes to move out of state or to a different Texas jurisdiction, he or she must ask the court to approve the move-away. The best-case scenario has both parties collaborating to create an agreement that can be filed with the court. However, our law firm understands the emotional and financial issues associated with move-away situations. We will:
- Evaluate your divorce decree
- Take the issue to a judge
- Negotiate with the other side
- Pursue creative solutions that benefit all parties
