Divorce

Divorcing a long-term spouse can seem like a daunting task. There will be tough decisions to make, and new obstacles to overcome. It is important to not only address any immediate issues caused by the separation, but to also plan for issues that may arise after the divorce is finalized. If you were blessed with children during the marriage, you must reach a resolution that is in their best interest, while also protecting your parental rights. Nii Amaa Ollennu Law Firm, PLLC can help you through this challenging time.

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is typically a less stressful, less adversarial, and less expensive option than traditional contested divorces. If you want an amicable divorce and have reached agreements with your spouse regarding co-parenting and the division of the community estate, Nii Amaa Ollennu Law Firm, PLLC can help you formalize these agreements through an uncontested divorce.

Modification vs. Enforcement of Previous Orders

Unfortunately, divorced parents often have issues with their counterpart when raising their children post-divorce. In certain circumstances a modification of the previous orders is needed, while in other situations, the previous orders just need to be enforced. To help determine which cause of action best fits your needs, ask yourself one simple question: “If the other parent was following the orders as they exist now, would it resolve my issues?” If you answered “no” to this question, then you will likely need a modification of the previous orders. If you answered “yes” to this question, then you should pursue an enforcement action against your ex.

Modification of Previous Orders

What once worked, isn’t working anymore, and now you need a modification of your previous orders. Our lives are ever changing, and while the original orders regarding the children may have accurately addressed the parties needs at the time, things are different now and the orders need to be modified. We regularly work with clients to determine if their case is eligible for a modification, and then develop and execute a custom fit strategy to help achieve the desired modification.

Enforcement of Previous Orders

You received the judge’s orders regarding child custody and support and are following them to the letter. However, the other parent views the judge’s orders more as a recommendation than as orders handed down by a legal authority. Thus, your ex has decided to not pay the child support nor follow the possession schedule. Nii Amaa Ollennu Law Firm, PLLC can help you enforce the current orders

Family Violence

It is a sad truth that many individuals in our surrounding communities suffer from family violence. If you are a victim of family violence, or you are facing an imminent threat of family violence, contact your local police department for immediate assistance. The Texas courts provide protection to victims of family violence. The relief normally comes in the form of a family violence protective order or court-ordered injunctions. Nii Amaa Ollennu Law Firm, PLLC can help you with any family violence issues you may be facing. Please schedule a free 30-minute- consultation to discuss your options for obtaining the protection that you and your family need.
