Community Contacts

When dealing with the concerns of families in and around the Houston area, it is often helpful to seek information, guidance, and assistance from local community resources. Below is a list of community contacts you may find useful in navigating the emotional complexities of your family law matter.

Parenting courses:

Most family law courts require parties to attend a parenting course before finalizing their family law matter. Some courts allow parties to take online courses but other courts require parties to attend the class in person. Prior to taking any course, you should refer to the local rules of the court your family law matter is in to be sure you are taking a course approved by the court.
