Many of my clients’ biggest concerns when contemplating divorce is what access to their children will be after the marriage ends. The first thing I tell my clients is to not worry: provided there are no issues related to the children’s safety, the State of Texas wants a divorced parent to have enough access and be an involved parent. If you want to be an involved parent, the law will support you and your ex-spouse, most likely, will not be able to prevent you from seeing your kids. But how exactly does the law divide up the time with the Children?
In many cases the parties can come to an agreement on a specific schedule that works with their family and circumstances. Texas Courts generally accept and approve a schedule of visitation that the parents create by agreement. In cases where the parents cannot agree, the most common visitation schedule…

Paternity Fraud is still legal in Washington State but a Bill being introduced during the upcoming legislative session aims to provide a legal remedy to victims. Read it here.
Having passed through the Law and Justice committee, a first and second reading by the Rules Committee, a short 60 day legislative session ended last year before the Bill could be brought to the floor for a vote. With 105 days to work with during the 2015 legislative session victims of paternity fraud in Washington State hope to finally enjoy fairness and equity before the law.
To help, find your District and who your Legislators are using the Washington State District Finder and ask them to support this Bill. You can also download a petition form for gathering signatures and send to your legislators. Petition to Pass .PDF

One of the first questions that family law clients ask is, “How much is this going to cost me?”
This is particularly the case after they review the timeline for procedures in family law. Once they realize that their case could take months to resolve, their mental calculator starts projecting the costs — and many rightfully cringe.
Avoiding high costs is one of the many reasons that we strongly encourage our clients to considermediation over trial. The process can be less expensive while also delivering better outcomes to both parties.
However, in order to promote better transparency, the Law Office of Natalie Gregg has compiled this list of filing fees in Texas family law courts. This list was accurate as of May 2012; this is not a guarantee of fees and should be used merely as a guide; please also see note below regarding the nature of these fees.
Please note this is just a reference, and is not necessarily indicative of the current costs. Those can only be found directly on the sites of the courts themselves, which are listed below.
(NOTE: Filing fees are paid directly to the district or county clerk and must be paid in the form of a check or cash for Dallas and Collin County. Currently, only Tarrant County and Denton County accept credit card, and charge a convenience fee for doing so. Likewise, the above-referenced filing fees do not include the costs of hiring an attorney, drafting the documents or service on the opposing party. These are only the mandatory fees that you are required to pay upon filing the actual documents with the district clerk’s office.)
