Our Services


Divorce is almost always a stressful and challenging process. It may be that you and your spouse agree on all the details, or you may instead anticipate a long, drawn-out court battle. Either way, emotions are likely running high.

Family Law

Bringing the law into family matters can be scary. But having an experienced Texas family law attorney by your side will help give you the confidence to fight for your rights and what’s best for your family.

Child Custody & Support

At the end of the day, the most important consideration is what’s best for the child. But sometimes you and the child’s other parent may have differing opinions on what that is. That’s where we come in.


Life happens. Situations change, people move, parents remarry, children develop health problems. Court orders and parenting plans may seem final when you first agree to them, but the truth is that’s not always the case.

Divorce Property Division

Texas is a “community property” state, which means that certain assets and debts that you acquire during your marriage belong equally to both you and your spouse. If you decide to end your marriage, you will have to come up with a plan for who gets what.

Fathers’ Rights

Mothers make up 9 out of 10 custodial parents statewide. Our team at C.E. Borman believes that, all other things being equal, fathers have just as much of a right to be in their children’s lives as mothers.

Gray Divorce

Divorce for couples above the age of 50 is referred to as “gray divorce” because of the unique challenges and experiences of getting divorced later in life. After decades of building a life together, it can be difficult to untangle the consequences of a divorce, both financial and emotional.

LGBTQ Divorce

Just because same-sex marriage is legal doesn’t mean there isn’t still discrimination. And there are many other family law issues that LGBTQ couples can face – some unique to the LGBTQ community, and some not.


Adopting a child is one of the most exciting adventures a parent can take on. But there’s also a lot of red tape that comes with adoption, making the whole process hard to navigate sometimes, especially if you’re dealing with other legal issues at the same time.
