Domestic Violence is a very serious issue that can affect anyone’s life – male or female, married or unmarried. While domestic violence is most often seen between spouses or those involved or having been involved in intimate relationships, it can also occur against a child, parent, grandparent, or another family member.
If you are the victim of an act of domestic violence or have a reasonable belief that you are in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence – seek help immediately. You may need to file a domestic violence injunction.
It’s not unusual for ex-spouses to want to change a prior decree regarding issues of custody and support. A party seeking to modify his decree must show a substantial and continuing change of circumstances. Those circumstances may include dramatic changes in income, relocation to another state, or problems relating to the proper care of minor children.
The Pinkerton Law Firm will ensure that, to the extent possible, our clients’ modifications are achieved in light of the new circumstances while preserving those rights provided for in prior decrees.
Guardianship proceedings are complicated and require substantial attorney involvement. Dallas probate attorney Kimberly Pinkerton understands that clients seeking guardianship for an incapacitated or disabled loved one are facing a difficult and stressful time in their life. and she is dedicated to representing clients with empathy and compassion.
A guardianship is a court-supervised administration for a minor under the age of 18 or an incapacitated adult. In some states, the term conservatorship is used to distinguish between proceedings involving minors or adults, however, in Texas, the term guardianship refers to both minors and incapacitated adults.
The court may award you a judgment, but it is up to you to enforce it. The court will not do it for you. This leaves you to figure out how to collect your judgment.
If your judgment has been left uncollected, you may need an attorney to help you with enforcement. Many attorneys are skilled at litigation, but many are not familiar with the rules applicable to judgment enforcement. At Pinkerton Law Firm, we are experienced in this area, and we will use the tools available to help you enforce judgments and get what you need.
