Practice Areas

I have successfully helped many families through difficult situations.

The Law Office of Robert Tsai, PLLC helps navigate clients through the difficult process of divorce in Texas. Divorce can impact how property is divided and also custody arrangements for the parties’ children. Robert Tsai has handled numerous divorce matters to a final settlement or trial. 

When parties are not married and they have children together, a court may issue temporary or final orders regarding custody of the children. There are many factors for the court to consider, but the primary consideration is the best interest of the children. Robert Tsai has successfully represented clients at custody-related hearings and trials when there is parental alienation, child abuse, and other issues.

A Texas Court may modify a prior custody Court order when there is a significant change that warrants a modified order. Modifications can be very complex, and courts can sometimes even change the custody arrangements of the children and switch the primary parent. Robert Tsai has successfully handled custody cases where the primary custody of the children was flipped to Robert Tsai’s client. 

When a party does not follow a Court order, a person may be forced to file an enforcement lawsuit against that party. Courts have the power to punish a party with contempt, jail time in certain instances, attorney’s fees, and other sanctions the court deems fit. Robert Tsai has successfully handled enforcement actions in Texas for his clients. 

In Texas, parties may contract and agree how property shall be characterized (as separate or community property) as well as how property acquired during the marriage is characterized. Parties generally may contract anything related to their property or money so long as the contract provisions are not illegal and do not violate public policy. Robert Tsai has served clients through drafting simple and complicated prenuptial agreements.

Similar to prenuptial agreements, Texas law allows parties to contract, even after the marriage, how property shall be characterized (as separate or community property). The parties may also agree how property acquired before or after the agreement is signed shall be characterized. As long as contract provisions are not illegal and do not violate public policy, a Court will almost certainly enforce these types of agreements. Robert Tsai has served clients through drafting simple and complicated postnuptial agreements.
