Planning for the future may be a formidable task, especially when it comes to end of life planning. Taking steps now to safeguard your assets is critically important. Serving people in Harrison County, Panola County, and beyond, knowledgeable wills and probate lawyer Shelia McCoy can assist clients with creating or executing their end of life plans. She understands how emotionally complicated these areas of the law may be, and she offers a compassionate yet professional approach to dealing with any complexities that may arise.
Our firm also handles divorce, child custody, and child support matters. A divorce may be granted on any of several grounds, including adultery, a felony conviction, living apart for at least three years, or abandonment, assuming that one or both spouses meet certain residency requirements. Texas is a “community property” state, meaning that debts and assets acquired during a marriage are to be divided evenly between the spouses. If the couple has young children, the court will decide which parent will be the conservator if the parents cannot agree on a custody plan. The court may also make provisions for visitation and child support, as well as spousal maintenance (alimony) if needed.
