Full-service family law firm in Amarillo
Whether anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you need a competent, assertive Texas attorney by your side when facing important family issues. Family lawyer Stewart R. Werner zealously advocates for your rights and provides protection for your family during all family law proceedings, including:
-Adoption
-Alimony
-Child custody and visitation
-Child support
-Child support modification and enforcement
-Divorce
-Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
-Mediation
-Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Adoption:
Adopting a child brings happiness to families - but a biological parent's change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn the joyous occasion into a nightmare. We assist with the complex legal process of adoptions so you can feel secure about your child's well-being.

Alimony:
Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. We will help you obtain the spousal support you deserve, so you can continue to live as you did during the marriage.

Child custody and visitation:
We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support:
Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. At the Law Offices of Stewart R. Werner, we advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement:
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Divorce:
Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment - including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings:
When Texas authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut the bureaucratic red tape. We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Texas to protect your parental rights.

Mediation:
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. We can help you obtain the best possible divorce settlement.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements:
Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails. We expect the unexpected and draft agreements that protect both spouses' financial interests.
