Divorce/Family Law Bullet Points

The following divorce/family law bullet points will make things easier on you, despite what your initial reaction may be. First, do the following:

  • Calm down. Do not make emotionally charged decisions. Do not say things that you might later hear in court.
  • Facebook and social media – do not make statements or post pictures on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest or any other social media site that you may come to regret. No disparaging statements about your spouse. No party down weekend pics. Do NOT put any personal information on your social media page in any way. Even if your page is a closed or locked page, recognize access can be ferreted out. Put nothing on social media.
  • Organize and prepare for court early on. Copies of all financial statements, banking records, income tax returns, photographs, etc. will be needed.
  • If children are involved, do not voluntarily leave the family residence unless there exists the possibility of physical violence, do not risk your health. Remove yourself to a safe environment and contact your lawyer immediately.
  • If you no longer love your spouse, substitute courtesy.
  • Always be skeptical. Always skeptical of anything your spouse, former spouse or significant other says.
  • Information is power; do not tell your spouse more than you need to.
  • Walk away from heated arguments or conflicts.
  • Expect your spouse to resent your lawyer and attempt to undermine his or her influence.
  • Do not make agreements or sign anything without talking to your lawyer first.
  • When in conflict, trust your lawyer, not your spouse.
  • Use your lawyer as a buffer, learn to say:

    “Talk to your lawyer, and have him talk to mine.”

  • Do not rub in your legal victories. Payback can come around. When you win, walk away in silence and humility. Celebrate later.
  • Do not enter private negotiations without the knowledge and advice of your lawyer.

Practice Areas

Divorce in Texas

Probably 50% of all marriages will end in divorce. Most marriages will end because the parties have just grown apart.

Child Support - Texas

Somebody is going to pay child support.  There is really no way of getting out of it.  If you are the “nonprimary” then you will financially support your child and provide health insurance in almost all cases. 

Annulment in Texas

Annulments in Texas are about getting  a do-over.  Putting the marriage aside. This article discusses annulments in Texas and the basis for them.

Community Property/Separate Property?

In Texas, if you are married – all property is presumed to be community property – property owned by both spouses.  The key word is presumption.

Child Custody

If you have a child custody case, the best way to approach it is to call us and set an appointment to discuss the various aspects of this kind of case.

Enforcement and Contempt of Court Orders

Our courts take their orders very seriously and do not hesitate to impose fines, award attorney’s fees, and place someone in jail.

About Us

The Jackson Law Group has been asked to represent clients from Gregg and Wood Counties to Lubbock County, to Fort Bend County, McLennan County.

Most of the practice, however, is in North Texas – Dallas, Collin, Denton, Kaufman, and Tarrant Counties.  From the perspective of the family law client, very often they are seeking the Dallas attorney because the Dallas attorney is not so worried about his/her relationship with the local bar or the local judge.

In that regard, the representation is more effective.

A true blessing

I obtained Earl Jackson as my attorney to get my child back, I am in another state so I had to search high and low to find someone that I felt could help me in such a stressful time of my life. Someone I could trust being so far from me, after all the future of my daughter was in the hands of this person I had never met face to face but only spoke with over the phone.

Extremely Happy Father, Thanks to Earl Jackson

Highly recommended and experienced lawyer!
Hands down the best decision for my child custody case was hiring Earl Jackson! After hearing so many opinions about how tough it would be for a Father to win custody in Texas and almost feeling as if the odds were impossible, Earl and his paralegal, Stacey Malone, quickly helped calm my fears and doubts.
