TEXAS (DFW) I need an aggressive divorce attorney to help me get divorce and custody.

Asked over 1 year ago - Arlington, TX

My soon to be ex has a lawyer who is, lets say, not a decent man and who plays games all the time. I have an attorney who is knowledgeable but who is really nice and not aggressive enough. The ex has history of domestic violence, has tried to commit suicide, admitted to his desire and ability to kidnap our child and flee the country. With all that, the judge gave him standard possession and ordered $200 in child support (Not enough for diapers)
Time to change the tides, I need a lawyer who can solve my saga.

Thank you

    Good luck!
