The term “family violence” can refer to several aspects of abuse: child endangerment, mental abuse, dating violence, assault and battery between spouses, and more. At HKH Family Law understand the deeply sensitive nature of family violence and the fears and concerns surrounding abuse. If you or someone close to you is suffering in an abusive situation, please contact our office for legal advice, and for referral to local resources in Collin, Denton, and Dallas counties, including shelters, counselors, and other service providers who may help address your situation. Our Family Law attorneys recognize: in situations involving family violence, you don’t just need an attorney, you need a legal counselor.
Family Violence divorce cases require an approach different from any other type of divorce. Family violence will be prevalent in many aspects of your divorce including safety of the parties and children, child custody, visitation, and even the division of property. The importance of hiring the right attorney at the onset of a divorce involving family violence can make or break your case.
A single episode of domestic abuse can have adverse and lasting impact on child custody arrangements and may result in supervised visitation or the termination of parental rights.

HKH did an amazing job tackling a last minute appeal brief. They were very professional, prompt and knowledgeable. I appreciate the time and work that they put into this case. I would highly recommend this law firm to others.
I recently hired Alyssa and HKH to handle my estate planning. Her ability to listen, comprehend and guide me through complex matters is what separates a great attorney from a good one. I will use Alyssa to handle all of my future family and estate legal matters.
Alyssa handled my custody case with extreme passion, she clearly loves what she does! From the first time In her office I was updated constantly with how my case was going, and she never did anything without consulting me first. The case was definitely contentious but Alyssa made sure that I ended up with all of the things I asked for. From temporary orders to final orders I was extremely happy with her diligence towards my case. I would recommend her to anyone who asks about a family law attorney.
Alyssa has been working with me through 2 different child custody cases and was the best. She is very responsive and on top of it from start to finish. She is great about keeping your best interests in mind and will do everything she can to get you what you’re asking for! Highly recommended!!!
