Other Family Law Cases

Family law is more than just divorce. Cases can look as different as the families they involve, but Nolan’s extensive experience working in Henderson County means he is able to help with a variety of cases, including:

  • Child Custody/Custody Modification

    Cases involving children include paternity suits and suits affecting parent-child relationship (SAPCR). These types of lawsuits are what initially establish the details of co-parenting plans including conservatorship, child support, visitation, residency and travel restrictions. When a change in the life of a parent or child occurs, Nolan can assist in a modification suit to amend the child custody and co-parenting agreements.

  • Child Support Amendments/Enforcements

    Financial circumstances often change over time. When this occurs it might be necessary to amend child support obligations. A child support modification or review proceeding would be necessary for the court to determine if a modification of child support is warranted.
    If a person is in child support arrears, a child support enforcement would be filed. Nolan can assist in enforcing child support obligations as well as representing the party who is facing enforcement.

  • Non-parent Interventions

    In situations where a non-parent is considering filing for custody of a child, Nolan can advise and assist in the intervention process. This would include grandparents, other family members, foster families, etc.

  • Termination and Adoptions

    Nolan has helped many families with legal termination of parental rights and adoptions. Nolan can navigate the many steps of the adoption process for you.
