Choosing to end a marriage is one of the most painful decisions any couple will ever make.

Choosing a divorce lawyer to advocate for your interests during a divorce means making an important investment in your future and the future of your children. You have one chance to do it right. You must choose a lawyer that is not only knowledgeable and experienced in the courtroom, but one that will listen to your desires and needs. The attorney you choose will be your spokesperson guiding you and advocating for you through out the process. Make sure you choose one that will listen and explain the process to you.

Divorce ● Custody Battles ● Visitation Disputes ● Child Relocation
In addition to divorce, Michael Von Blon focuses on child custody disputes, negotiating and changing visitation rights, child support modifications and child relocation (ability to relocate to another county, state or country) . We have had success advocating for grandparent custody and for a custodial parent's ability to move out of state or out of the country, despite a divorce decree prohibiting relocation.
Amicable Negotiation or Strong Advocacy When Settlement Proves Impossible
We firmly believe in first exploring the ability to amicably negotiate divorce agreements whenever possible. Michael Von Blon realizes that when the divorce case is completed and the lawyers long out of site, the parents and children affected need to heal from the process. Too often, lawyers can contribute to the emotional turmoil involved in a divorce. Michael Von Blon strives to minimize that conflict, realizing that when spouses and their lawyers can clearly and calmly communicate each party's needs and desires and "hear" the other's needs/desires , the divorce process may conclude at reduced expense and without creating additional conflict in relationships, thereby facilitating the healing process.
In some situations, however, amicable negotiation is impossible. Perhaps addiction is a factor, or some other emotional issue. No matter the reason behind a hotly contested divorce, we stand ready to fight for our clients' desired outcome with all the strength of our legal knowledge and years of experience in the Texas courts. We have tried custody cases all over Texas, representing mothers, fathers and even grandparents. We are goal oriented and result driven.
If you have a contested custody case, to be successful, you must plan and prepare your case from the outset. Preparation and planning is crucial for a successful outcome. That involves not only gathering documents already in existence as possible evidence, but also being aware of the creation of evidence as the case progresses--evidence can be created, even when you don't intend to do so. You must be careful in your actions and your words. Michael Von Blon can assist you in both maximizing the positive evidence for your position and minimizing the potentially "negative" evidence. As soon as you retain Michael Von Blon, we will educate you as to what to expect each step of the way, guide you from the beginning to the end, and prepare you for the courtroom so that you maximize your outcome. And if you have questions along the way, we will listen to understand your concerns, and not just listen to respond to those concerns.
