Practice Areas

Child Custody & Support

Child custody cases are the most emotional and important cases to our clients.  Your children are your life, your heart and soul.  WE GET THAT!

Our families are our highest priority.  Most of us are parents and our walls are covered with our kid’s photos.  We have sat on the bleachers while our kids swung the bat or caught the football, acted in the school play or danced in the recital.  We know how important your time with your children is. When you come to us because custody has been challenged, you do not have to explain how crucial it is to you. 

Most cases have the potential for working out and finding a resolution which is best for the children and both parents.  In the instances in which it must go to trial, we will be there for you.

What's more, a large law firm will almost always hand your case down to a young associate who does the bulk of the actual work. At Goldsberry, Shari will personally work with you and represent and support you through every step of the case.

Call Goldsberry & Associates today at 281-533-3030 for a consultation.

Paternity

A paternity or parentage case is what is filed when the parents of the child or children are not married. Under Texas Law, children born under these circumstances have exactly the same rights as all other children and the parents can have the same rights as if they were married at the time of the birth.

When the parents are married, paternity is presumed; however, if the parents aren’t married, the biological father can get orders establishing him as the legal father.   In those circumstances, you may have to have a “Parentage Order” to spell out your rights, duties, and responsibilities.

Adoption

Most Family Law Attorneys agree that the most rewarding area of practice is when we help families adopt a child.  Helping parents who have been unable to conceive has been one of our greatest sources of satisfaction in what we do for our community.  We respect the ultimate sacrifice and the gift of unselfishness that birth parents make for their baby.  We realize how grateful adoptive parents feel when they can finally complete their family.

Very commonly, we help facilitate Step-Parent adoptions.  It is gratifying to help a young man, who has been acting in every way as a father–feeding, housing, nurturing, loving a child–become the legal father.

Due to some of the destructive addictions with young adults in today’s society, many children are being raised by their grandparents.  There are special provisions in the Texas Family Code that make it more affordable and less restrictive for grandparents to adopt their grandchildren.

Call Goldsberry & Associates today at 281-533-3030 for a consultation. 

Grandparent's Rights

In Texas, Grandparents have statutory rights in certain circumstances. We more than appreciate the bond that grandparents have to their precious grandchildren. It can even be more challenging when you have to take a position that is adverse to your own adult child. There are several potential remedies available under the law which allows you to protect your grandchildren.

What our Clients Say

  • Picking Shari to represent me was by far the best decision I made throughout my custody battle. Shari and her assistant Chris were such a pleasure to work with. Communication was excellent and responses were prompt. They answered all my questions no matter how remedial they were, helped me to understand my best options and always had mine and my daughters best interest in mind. I can't say enough good things about them. Shari has an amazing practice and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a hardworking lawyer with honesty and integrity.

  • Shari Goldsberry is a skilled and accomplished lawyer. As a Grandparent, we entered into a custody pursue of our Granddaughter. From the outset we were given a cautious optimism for success. However, with the evidence we had and the skilled guidance and legal knowledge of Shari, after 18 months, my wife and I were granted Sole Managing Conservartorship of our Granddaughter. This would have never happened without her tenacity and expertise and knowledge of Family Law. Shari can always count on us to let future clients know of our satisfaction in her ability to overcome odds and delivery satisfactory outcomes. Terry, a Grandparent and Custody Client

  • My first experience with Shari Goldsberry was over the phone regarding my custody case for my young daughter. Being a father fighting for custody I found the initial process to be against me; because I am the father – plain and simple. She welcomed my situation, and her tone, sincerity, and attitude had me in her office by the end of the day. Nothing is more personal than a custody case. In the past several months, I have grown to depend on Shari for guidance, support, in addition to representation. I am beyond grateful that she has happily delivered in all capacities, which measure out to more than your typical attorney deliverable. 
In the courtroom she is gifted with calmness and confidence. Her representation is comforting and organic. Having Shari Goldsberry represent my daughter and I is one of the best decisions I have and will have ever made for my daughter. I highly recommend Shari to represent anyone that is looking for representation in a custody case. Not only will you be getting representation, you will be getting support, trust, and experience.
