Areas of Law Description
Nunis & Associates represents clients in most types of civil litigation matters such as:
- Civil Litigation
The attorneys at Nunis & Associates assist clients to resolve disputes through negotiation and aggressive litigation in matters such as contract interpretation, breach of contract, fraud, partnership disputes, shareholder disputes, debt collection, consumer litigation, deceptive trade practices, construction defects, mechanics liens, state taxation matters, real property litigation, real estate contracts, title disputes, partition actions, and lease disputes.
- Consumer Law
Consumer protection is government regulation to protect the interests of consumers. Consumer law refers to state and federal consumer protection and product safety statutes and regulations that restrict or prohibit deceptive trade practices such as the Consumer Protection Act. These laws cover many issues, such as: credit repair, warranties, internet scams, food safety, and identify theft.
- Family Law
The attorneys at Nunis & Associates assist clients facing divorce or a dispute with a spouse, former spouse, or significant other, such as: divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, child abuse, spousal abuse, protective orders, enforcement of prior family court orders, modification of prior family court orders, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, paternity, complex property division, spousal fraud and waste, and uncontested divorce.
We meet personally with each of our clients to fully explain the legal process of divorce and discuss our client’s specific issues. We explain what "community property" is and discuss what property may not be subject to division upon divorce. We negotiate with our client’s spouse or the spouse’s attorney where we can to achieve a fair resolution of all issues for our client. But when negotiation fails to achieve fair results, our firm takes divorce cases to trial because we pride ourselves in providing our clients with aggressive, professional representation.
• Child Custody
Texas courts encourage parents to decide child custody issues by agreement. But when the parents are unable to agree, the court makes child custody decisions on the basis of what is in the best interest of the child. Most of the time the courts order joint legal custody—called "conservatorship"—so that both parents get to make major decisions concerning their child’s health, education and welfare.
• Child Support
The amount a supporting parent pays for child support depends on the paying parent’s net income and other financial resources. A child support order can be changed when there is a change of circumstance, such as a change in the paying parent’s income or the child reaching the age of legal majority.
• Spousal Support
When one party does not fulfill the obligations required by the court order, the other party has to formally ask the court to enforce the prior court order. And when circumstances change for one or both parties, a prior court order may no longer be fair to one of the parties and in that case, that party may formally ask the court to modify the court order.
• Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two people prior to marriage listing all of the property each person owns and all of the debts each person owes and specifies each person's rights and liabilities after marriage. A postnuptial agreement is similar, except it is a contract between a couple already married.
Paternity is the legal acknowledgment of the identity of a child’s father. Paternity provides a child with various rights and benefits such as medical and life insurance coverage, inheritance rights, Social Security benefits, and family history information that may be useful for the child's healthcare.
