Family Law Services We Offer
Divorce and Modifications
Our lawyer and team at the Law Office of Randy Michel in College Station can help support you through your contested or uncontested divorce. We also help our clients with modifications to a divorce that can better fit their current circumstances.
As a family law attorney, Randy Michel can help you and your partner reach a fair agreement regarding child support payments and custody. Also, similar to divorce law, Attorney Michel can help you modify your child support order or custody ruling to suit your current circumstances better.
Our family law attorney understands that divorce and other matters can leave lifelong impressions on your children. This is why we will do everything we can to protect their best interests. This especially applies when it comes to child custody. Our team and family law attorney will use our skills and resources to make this child custody process as hassle-free as possible for everyone involved.
Sought for both children and adults, guardianship allows the legal authority for one person to make decisions for another when they are unable to care for themselves. Whether you need guardianship of a person or an estate, our family lawyer can help guide the way.
Mediation and Arbitration
Mediation and arbitration are more cost-effective and efficient paths to finalizing a divorce than courtroom litigation. Attorney Michel is a certified mediator and arbitrator. He can help guide you and your partner to a mutually agreeable end goal.
We provide comprehensive adoption advocacy at the Law Office of Randy Michel in College Station. We offer representation for private, step-parent, and inter-family adoption. We can also pursue the termination of parental rights under certain circumstances.
Support in Every Aspect of Your Divorce
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.
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.
Your Divorce Doesn't Have to Be a Long, Legal Battle
Not all divorces have to be contentious. Rather than having a judge resolve disagreements, couples who divorce amicably can work together and have more control over their divorce. This can be achieved with a collaborative law approach to divorce.
As a member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas, attorney Randy Michel is uniquely qualified to help you and your spouse reach a mutually beneficial agreement that will set you up for future success.
Child custody, child support, alimony, and other important aspects of your family life can be resolved and finalized using collaborative law.

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.
We Work With Professionals So You Have All the Facts
When building your family law case, attorney Randy Michel may bring in our own private investigator and forensic accountant. This enables our College Station team to approach your case with facts and help secure a more favorable outcome for you.
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.
Mr. Michel believes in providing honest, compassionate representation to help your family come to a resolution as quickly and painlessly as possible.
"We were relieved and thankful Mr. Michel took the time to provide guidance through this very stressful process. Without any hesitation, I would recommend you give him a call." Dee M.
