Research Memos

“What must a parent prove to deviate from the Standard Possession Order in a case?”

“What must a spouse show in order to overcome the presumption of community property in Texas?”

These are questions Texas family law attorneys encounter on a daily basis.  Most family lawyers can of course identify these issues in their cases but may not have the time or resources to fully research the law.

A Research Memo is designed to be less formal than a brief that may be submitted to the Court.  It can be an excellent tool to be used in developing your client’s case, answering discovery, or preparing your client for their deposition. It can also be useful in deciding whether to pursue a particular course of action in a case based on the law.
