How Our Galveston County Family Lawyers Can Help 

Our experience and knowledge of local regulations and practices ensure your case will be in excellent hands. Whether you’re facing a contested divorce or navigating a contentious custody battle, we’ll be here for you every step of the way. 

Here’s an introduction to the services a Galveston family law attorney from Ramos Law Group, PLLC, can assist you with: 

  1. Divorce. We offer skilled representation in contested and uncontested divorces and provide results-driven representation. If you’re preparing for a divorce, speak with a family lawyer in Galveston. 
  2. Property division. Because of community property rules in Texas, property division is often complex. Marital property is assumed to be jointly owned, but this doesn’t necessarily guarantee a 50/50 split. We also have experience handling high-net-worth divorces, business owner divorces, and other complicated property division situations. 
  3. Spousal maintenance (alimony). Spousal maintenance provides financial support to one party during or after the divorce. However, Texas law doesn’t guarantee spousal support awards and is quite restrictive when granting financial assistance. 
  4. Child custody. With our deep knowledge of Texas custody laws and the ‘best interests of the child’ standard, you have a strong legal advocate on your side. We can handle all types of child custody matters, including negotiations, litigation, enforcement of rights, and order modifications. 
  5. Child support. The parent without primary custody usually has to pay child support. We help clients navigate Texas’s child support guidelines, ensuring your children’s financial well-being is maintained. 
  6. Adoptions. Are you interested in adopting a child? Our firm assists with all types of adoptions, including private and step-parent adoptions, and provides support throughout the complex legal process.
  7. Protective orders. Domestic violence is something we take very seriously. We offer sensitive and prompt assistance in cases involving domestic violence and protective orders.
  8. Family law appeals. Stay encouraged if the court returns an unfavorable verdict, as you can appeal. However, you must act fast because there are stringent deadlines. If you receive an adverse decision in your family law case, our attorneys are ready to help with the appeals process. 

The emotional rollercoaster of family law matters can feel overwhelming. Do not try to navigate the Texas legal system alone. Instead, contact our Galveston family lawyers for assistance. 

Family Law Galveston, TX, Family Law FAQs

We receive a lot of questions on how family law matters work in Galveston. Here are answers to some of the most common ones to help you prepare for your initial client meeting with us. 

Is Texas a fault-based divorce state? 

Texas offers both fault-based and no-fault divorce options. Most divorces are no-fault, based on insupportability”—a conflict of personalities preventing reconciliation.

What should I consider when hiring a family law attorney in Galveston County? 

You want to hire a family law attorney with extensive experience with family law matters similar to what you’re seeking legal assistance for. You want an attorney with a successful track record, strong negotiation and litigation skills, and a compassionate approach.

What does the court mean by the “best interest of the child” standard? 

The best interests of the child standard guides custody decisions, with attention to the child’s safety, health, and well-being. The court looks at various factors to determine the best outcome for the child.

Is mediation suitable for my Galveston family law case? 

Depending on the situation, mediation can be a cost-effective and amicable way to resolve disputes. It’s a collaborative process well-suited to many family law cases, but hiring a lawyer with mediation experience is best.

Our Client Testimonials

Superb Law Firm

The decision to end my 25-year marriage was not an easy one, but hiring the Ramos Law Group was. From the initial consultation to the execution of the Divorce Decree everyone at the firm displayed the utmost professionalism and I was treated as if I was their only client. My attorney Lindsey, always provided precise legal guidance, was usually one step ahead of the opposing counsel, and had a superb understanding of how things would play out in the court room. Additionally, whenever my case needed a little extra horsepower, Mary provided that "surge" to keep things on track.

Worth Every Penny

"Ms. Ramos and her entire staff worked with professionalism and compassion to guide me through the most difficult time of my life and to an outcome that was best for my family and myself. Ramos Law is incredible and I highly, highly recommend their services."

Custody case won

"I was recommended to see Mary Ramos for my on coming custody case,it was the best thing I could've done honestly.The Ramos law group was quick with emailed responses and telephone calls,informative with ANY questions I had and they also took action with what they thought would work,which it did,I had money troubles and they were still willing to help they sent me with a younger lawyer Lindsey Lewis to help save some money and she was the best!She knew what she was doing and Mary was still on my case to make sure things went smoothly and to catch any details Lindsey and I might have missed.All in all I am a very satisfied client and if I ever needed a family lawyer again I would come back.My case was won as I received primary for my daughter which is exactly what I asked for.If you're willing to listen to what they have to say and follow their guidance they're definitely worth hiring.I thought I wanted sole custody for my daughter and they explained that wasn't in the best interest for her and honestly they were right,they speak to you on a professional level and also a real level of how things are actually going to work and what could happen if you take a certain action.They definitely care about their clients and make their own bond with you,you're not just money in their pockets you turn into family. "

Divorce Attorney

"I received excellent advice and representation from Ms. Lindsey Lewis. She kept me updated at every step of the process, and I never felt as if my case was set aside. I would hire The Ramos Law Group in the future. "

Highly recommend

"I started my divorce with a lawyer who was not very responsive. My divorce case was complicated and needed more laborious scrutiny. Since the case was not moving forward I had to switch lawyers. Made the switch to Ramos Law group. Since the very first day Mary and her team have been very efficient and meticulous. Since the case was complicated the team had to go through myriads of pages in discovery. I was pleased with the legal team that helped us handle the paperwork in a very timely manner. All my questions were answered very promptly. The relay of information was easy with their software system. We finally had a law firm that we could trust. My divorce was finalized and I only have Mary and her team to thank for going through a difficult divorce. I would highly recommend the Ramos law group for their help and support for getting my life back on track. "
