Life Changes. Let's Keep Your Legal Documents Up To Date.

Here For You Through Challenging Family Changes

Family law is something many people encounter in life. Sound legal guidance is so essential for addressing family law issues in a constructive, effective manner.

With years of experience handling family law issues in Texas courts and out-of-court methods such as mediation, DLG Law, PLLC, can assist you with a wide variety of legal matters relating to you and your family. I’m Michael de la Garza, the firm’s founder and family law attorney. You can rely on me for help with any type of family law issue. As a married gay man, I’m especially passionate about helping LGBTQ+ individuals address the unique concerns they face in the family law context.

You Have Options In How You Handle Your Family Law Issues

I can address all marriage- and divorce-related issues, including:

  • Prenuptial/postnuptial agreements
  • Property division
  • Spousal support
  • Child custody and support
  • Divorce mediation
  • Post-divorce modifications

Marriage, having children, and divorce can all make a major impact on your will and estate planning documents. I can discuss these issues with you and help move you toward your personal goals.

If any of my clients do ever seek out a divorce then one of the services that I offer to them is the option for an amicable split from their partners. Agreed divorce decrees, agreed modification in post-divorce or Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR) cases can help streamline the separation process and avoid lengthy litigation in court. Through mediation I can offer my clients custom outcomes that are tailored to their individual situations. At the end of the day though, if I need to go through a litigation process then I am more than willing to do that for my clients.

Child Support And Custody

If you are a parent, then issues of child support and child custody can be at the forefront of your mind. Sometimes it’s a new child, a new relationship or sometimes it’s the end of a marriage. In all these cases, it is important to consider and review your legal situation. I can help you establish court orders to protect you and your family, or assist you in the modification process to make changes to your divorce or parent-child relationship case.


Many people yearn to satisfy their desire to raise children. In same-sex couples, this can bring about questions and confusion over parenting rights and responsibilities. A second-parent adoption is a great way to protect your family and have peace of mind that both parents can take action on behalf of their minor children. In blended families, sometimes adoption is the best way to provide stability and closure for everyone. I can address all of your questions and concerns to help the process go more smoothly.
