Family Law

Working with Families

As a law firm devoted to working with parents and children, Morais Kim Law helps clients just like you find their way through legal challenges every day. Our goal for every client is to help ensure their children grow up in a safe and caring environment that allows them to develop into mature and confident adults. We do this by helping families develop creative ways to resolve family law problems, efficiently. So you can concentrate on what is most important – your family and future. 

Child Abuse and Neglect

Child protection litigation is a complicated area of law. When you are dealing with issues as serious as abuse and neglect, you need to be sure your lawyer understands child welfare law and how the child protection system operates in Texas. 

Founding attorney, Michellé Placzek is regularly appointed by the courts in Texas to represent children and parents in proceedings brought by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. When she is serving as an attorney ad litem for a child, she acts as the child’s attorney, doing everything possible to protect your child’s rights and represent their best interests to the court.  When appointed to represent a parent accused of abuse or neglect, her goal is to protect your right to be a parent and present any and all mitigating evidence on your behalf. 

If you have been charged with child abuse or neglect, you need a lawyer to preserve your rights and interests throughout the course of all proceedings. It is frightening when Texas Child Protective Services institutes an investigation into your family. The process is confusing and can take a long time. When your goal is family reunification, Morais Kim Law will aggressively advocate for your rights, giving you all the support and guidance you need along the way.

If you are a child and don't feel safe, call us. If we can't help we'll find someone who can. 

Custody and Visitation

Children should have the opportunity to spend time with each of their parents, provided the child is safe and secure at all times. When a divorce or separation takes place, it is critical for kids to continue to feel loved and supported by both of their parents.

Unfortunately, child custody and visitation determinations tend to be highly volatile and are one of the most difficult issues for parents to reach an agreement. Whether you are struggling with a spouse or ex-spouse who is refusing to comply with an existing legal/ physical custody or visitation order or are hoping to modify an existing arrangement, Morais Kim Law can help. By taking the time to understand thoroughly your family’s situation and working with you to reach a resolution, we can help you make choices that are right for you and your child. 

Child Support

When you are dealing with child support issues, the guidance and advocacy of an attorney who understands the complex laws and formulas governing child support payments are valuable and highly recommended. Our goal at Morais Kim Law is to take the confusion out of the process and aggressively advocate for your child’s right to receive the financial support he or she needs and deserves.
