Family Law for North Texas, with offices in Frisco, Lewisville, and Flower Mound

Family Law deals with many different types of cases such as divorce, child support, alimony, child custody, visitation, and adoption.

Divorce cases may involve children, property, spousal support, and/or fault issues.

Adoption cases are among the most important cases that we handle as everyone wants to ensure the child goes to a good and safe home.

Child Custody and Child Support cases are decided by the court with the desires of the child and what is in the best interest of the child as the most important factors.

Child Protective Services has the power by law to “take possession of a child without a court order.” They would only be forced to remove the child or children if there is an immediate danger to the physical health or safety of the child or if the child has been a victim of sexual abuse.

Estate Planning covers a wider array of important decisions which may include wills, trusts, and  guardianship.

Any and all aspects of my child custody case were handled expediently and professionally with David. The outcome of my case, even though dismissed, was as expected. Great attorney. Great service.

David Heiman handled my case for enforcement of child support. He had previously handled my divorce case. He did his homework. There were other factors in consideration at one of the Hearings where Mr. Heiman presented case law in order to get my case transferred to the court of jurisdiction. Mr. Heiman was empathetic and objective in working with me to realistically and properly address my concerns. He didn’t just tell me what I wanted to hear. He was able to look at the details of the case from both sides and he gave me great advice that ultimately produced favorable outcomes. The judges ruled in our favor EVERY TIME. Mr. Heiman is intelligent, impressive, compassionate and caring, and can bring out the humorous side of an unpleasant situation. Hire him! He will do no less than his very best to help you through it.

I can’t help but think I won the custody of my daughters because of the advice, help and support that David gave to me, from the first time I met him, right up to the time we won the custody case!!!”

Can CPS Terminate Parental Rights Based on Old Events?

Texas CPS has to show not only some act of abuse or neglect by the parent, but also, that the termination is in the current “best interest” of the child.
