Areas of Law Description
The Kalish Law Office provides experienced, knowledgeable legal representation in the following practice areas:
- Family Law
Our divorce and family law attorneys have experience in negotiation, settlement and collaborative divorce. Our family law attorneys in The Woodlands handle child support, custody and modification cases. If your prior court orders for visitation, custody, or child support are no longer serving the needs of your family, we can help you file for a modification of those orders.
The Kalish Law attorneys have the experience, ability, and desire to respond to you and your case as an individual situation. Although all divorce cases have some common elements, each case is different. In some cases, it may be better to settle out of court, while other cases must be taken to trial.
* Collaborative Divorce
In a Collaborative Divorce, parties and their lawyers work together outside the courtroom in a series of carefully planned meetings. They agree on joint discovery, employ neutral financial professionals when necessary, and work towards a settlement agreement.
* Adoption: Domestic and International
Our firm has been very involved in domestic and international adoption for over 30 years. We are familiar with the Hague convention, as well as non-Hague cases. We will also help our international adoption clients readopt, reaffirm or register the adoption in a Texas state court and get a Texas birth certificate.
* Child Custody and Visitation
A parent or legal guardian of a child may find that a prior order or arrangement is no longer working for the family. When that happens, it is time to seek legal advice from a family law attorney who has experience with child custody and visitation matters.
* Child Support
We handle child support, custody and modification cases. If your prior court orders for visitation, custody, or child support are no longer serving the needs of your family, we can help you file for a modification of those orders. If you need to increase or decrease a child support amount or need an order to stop child support because your child has turned 18, we will be happy to meet with you.
* Premarital Agreements
Premarital agreements are also called Prenuptial Agreements or “Prenups”. Most couples who decide on a premarital agreement do so because one of the parties has significantly more assets and debts than the other; because one or both parties want to preserve assets for pre-existing children; or for reasons of independence and autonomy.
If you are trying to legally establish your child’s paternity, we can assist you. We will explain how DNA testing, birth certificate information, and admissions of paternity affect the outcome of your case. We will review your situation, including whether or not child support or medical support has been paid, and whether there has been visitation with your child, and help you to determine the best way to handle paternity, visitation and support issues.
- Business Law
The skilled business law attorneys at Kalish Law Office can also assist you with the start-up of your new business. We will meet with you to discuss your goals and help you to formulate a business plan. We will guide you through the choice of business entity and help you draft documents and register your new or ongoing business with the proper state and governmental authorities.
- Estate Planning and Probate Law
Our attorneys at Kalish Law Office have the knowledge and experience to help you understand your estate planning options, from drafting a simple will to reviewing a variety of estate planning options for complicated or high asset estates.
