Sullivan’s Family Law Attorney Services in Dallas Include:


Divorce law deals with the legal proceeding governed by Texas law that terminates a marriage relationship, requiring a petition or complaint about divorce or dissolution by one of the parties.

Child Support Collection

Under the Child Support Enforcement Act of 1984, district attorneys and family law attorneys can help a parent collect child support. Therefore, methods of enforcement include wage garnishing, tax return or property seizure, and other means.

Pre & Post Marital Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements dictate how a couple will divide their assets in the event that their marriage dissolves. It can be helpful to utilize the services of a family law attorney to draw up these agreements as tax law significantly complicates post-divorce finances.

Enforcement of Court Orders

When a party does not comply with a court order or judgment, the opposing party in the litigation may seek to enforce the order. Rules of Civil Procedure allow for the garnishments, writ of seizure and sale, delivery, sequestration, possession, and contempt orders.

Post-Divorce Modifications

A request for a change is made by filing a “motion to modify” a divorce decree or judgment. This motion is usually filed with the same court where the divorce judgment or ruling was issued. Once the petition for modification has been completed, it is filed with the court and served to the former spouse.


Texas courts can award visitation, called “grandparent time” or “grandparent rights,” if the parents of the grandchild are divorced, separated, or have had their marriage annulled. Adoptions change or end the visitation rights of grandparents unless the adoption is granted to a stepparent or special allowances are made.

Surrogacy Legal Agreements

Legal Surrogacy agreements, or surrogacy contracts, lay out the rules, outcomes, and compensation between intended parents and their surrogate.

Local & International Adoptions

Adoptions, both local and international, involve the lives of multiple participants, and require dealing with governmental agencies as well as lengthy legal procedures. In order to assure the intended parents and the adopted child are well-protected and cared for, an experienced family law attorney familiar with adoption laws and regulations is recommended.

Paternity Issues

Paternity issues may arise in cases involving child support, but they can also be important in relation to adoption, inheritance, custody, visitation, even health care.

Appealing Divorce Decree or Judgment

Once a divorce is completed and a judgment has been entered, either or both ex-spouses may appeal a judge’s decision to a higher appellate court. Settlement agreements are usually not overturned if both parties agreed, however, additional appeals may be made.
