The Right Family Attorney for Child Custody and Support


A family attorney is an advantageous proponent when divorce proceedings involve child custody and support. A lawyer may also be helpful when dealing with cases where the child/children are born to those couples living apart or not currently “together”.

Although every case is different, one aspect remains the same. Your child (children) is the most important thing in your life. Don’t trust your case to just anyone. You deserve the best, and the law offices of Herbert and Lux want to provide you with the support, guidance, representation and legal counsel you deserve.

Based out of Nashville, Tennessee, our attorneys are familiar with local laws and customs, having successfully represented countless individuals over the years. Our team is well versed in family law and will make sure your voice doesn’t go unheard and that your rights are protected at every step of the proceedings.

Don’t Get Caught Without Representation

You might think you understand the conditions being presented to you, but the law can be both complex and nuanced.

If you don’t know what you’re looking for, important information can be missed, and opportunities to advocate for your rights and your benefits left unexplored.

Lack of Representation can Hurt Your Case

It’s natural to feel overwhelmed by emotions that often accompany cases involving children. The fact is, if you don’t have legal representation it is all too easy for you to miss important opportunities and for opposing counsel to use that against you.

You may even end up giving away some of your rights if you fail to read your custody order or divorce decree carefully. If this happens you may be unable to ask the court for a modification to these documents later on.

Don’t end up another statistic in the courtroom. Hire a team that will advocate on your behalf and fight for the full extent of the rights and benefits available to you under Nashville and Tennessee law.

At the First Sign of Issue, Get the Help You Deserve

Child custody and support cases can be emotionally charged, with both sides letting the situation and circumstances impede judgement and causing tempers or tears to flare.

The attorney’s at Herbert and Lux are compassionate, caring, empathetic and ready to fight in your corner at every step of the case. Let our team take a load off and deal with the stress of the case for you.

Even if all you are looking for is help with understanding your paperwork, Herbert and Lux will be there for you. Our skilled civil litigation team will make sure you’re getting the best deal for your situation.

Signs You Need a Lawyer (and fast)

  1. If your ex has already hired a lawyer of their own, you are going to want to do the same.

    A case where only one participant has retained legal aid can often feel (and indeed be) one-sided. Most individuals in this circumstance usually walk out of these situations feeling like they didn’t get a fair chance. The attorneys at Herbert and Lux will make sure your questions get addressed and your goals advocated for to the full extent of the law. Your family and peace of mind are always our top priority.

  2. If your case is going to cross into other jurisdictions you are going to want a lawyer.

    >Child custody and support laws vary from state to state, making interstate custody and visitation a legal mess. The same can be said for ex’s that live in another country altogether. Our attorneys understand your rights and are capable of helping you navigate these complicated issues with ease. For years we’ve helped clients just like you protect their rights to visitation, custody and other family matters. Family means a lot to us at Herbert and Lux, and we know it does to you as well.

  3. If you believe your child is in danger, you will want to hire a lawyer as soon as possible.

    A family attorney will be able to inform you of your rights, and work with you to develop a legal plan of action that is aimed at keeping your child (or children) safe from harm’s way. Many of us are parents ourselves and can fathom the emotional turmoil and despair of knowing your child may be in harm’s way.
    Our team can work quickly to obtain the paperwork necessary for the filing of a restraining order. It is very important to follow the laws set forth by a judge. Trying to keep your child/children from a court-ordered visitation can land you in a lot of trouble. Herbert and Lux can help you take the right steps toward legally keeping your family safe.

What Herbert and Lux can do for You and Your Custody or Child Support Case

Provide financial security

You can end up paying more in child support and alimony if you do not have legal representation. You may also end up releasing more marital assets to your ex than you realize. No one wants to get stuck with more of the marital debt than they are legally required to take on. We will work to make sure these things do not happen.

On the other side, if you’re the one obtaining child support from the father or mother, we’ll strongly argue on your behalf to make sure you get every single penny owed to you under Nashville law. Raising a child can be hard, and even more so when money is tight. Our firm will make sure you get the financial support you need.

Help relieve stress

Going through child custody and support proceedings can be overwhelming at times. Our attorneys will be there every step of the way, making sure you are well informed and that your case is moving along as quickly as possible so that you can get back to life without pending legal proceedings hanging over your head.

Provide legal protection and advocacy

If your case goes to court, our lawyers know your rights and will defend you aggressively if need be. With extensive knowledge of the legal system, there is no need to worry when our team is on your case.
