Child Support in Tyler, TX
Numerous questions about child support can come up when we are faced with a divorce or other type of lawsuit involving children and custody. These kinds of questions are often related to the duration and amount of the payments that may be required. Of course, circumstances in our lives change, and a parent who has been successfully paying child support for years may, at some point, find themselves in a tougher financial situation than before. It is vital in these cases to have a family law attorney who is familiar with the law and can help you gather the right documents to make a strong case for your financial needs.

Property Lawyers in Tyler, TX
Questions about property during a divorce can be complicated. For example, Texas is a community property state. This means that most of the property accumulated by you and your spouse during your marriage belongs to both of you – regardless of who earned it. Debts incurred by either spouse may be awarded to either or both spouses. Property owned prior to your marriage, as well as gifts and inheritances received during your marriage, are likely separate property and do not have to be divided with your spouse.
It is been our experience, however, that these kinds of legal explanations do not fully answer our clients’ questions. Our goal from the consultation appointment and beyond is to make sure that you know what to expect in a way that makes sense to you. The Sinclair Law Office, PC helps clients understand and navigate property division agreements through trial, settlement, or mediation. Contact us today to learn how we can help protect your property interests.
Child Custody / Child Support Enforcement
Sometimes, the court’s judgment (or decree) after a divorce needs to be reevaluated. You can affect the court’s decree in three different ways. If your ex-spouse is not complying with the conditions of the divorce, child custody, child support, or visitation order, then you are entitled to obtain those benefits through an enforcement of the order. You also have the right, within limits, to modify the terms of the original divorce decree, including the child custody order and child support order. In some instances, the original decree is vague or ambiguous. In these cases, you have the right to request the court to clarify the terms of the original decree.
The Sinclair Law Office, PC represents clients in post-decree proceedings to ensure the protection of your rights under the Texas Family Code. Our attorneys have helped clients enforce existing decrees, modify custody, and change child support. Speaking with an attorney about getting enforcements or modifications to decrees can ensure that you understand your rights in the process. Schedule a consultation with us to see exactly how we can help you.
