What happens when you pit custody and alimony against a celebrity or other wealthy person? If your finances are tight and the case isn’t related to a divorce battle – you never got married – Texas has the odds stacked against you.

As a divorce attorney in Fort Worth, I’ve represented clients and seen inequalities on both sides of the equation. Many “emergencies” can make life miserable for the other parent as well. However, my duty as a member of the State Bar of Texas is to make arrangements where fairness wins, especially for the kids caught in the middle.
