ABOUT

Preserving Families. Protecting Assets.

Branch Family Law is a boutique Texas firm dedicated to divorce and family law. Our mission is twofold: preserving families and protecting assets.

Whether you are involved in a contested divorce, custody dispute, or stepparent adoption, we understand that your legal issues can be emotionally difficult and are always available to help you make the best decisions for your family. Attorney Crista Marichalar Branch uses a combination of legal experience and compassion to help you overcome challenges concerning:

  • Regular and military divorce 
  • Child custody (conservatorship) and support
  • Adoption
  • Modification of a custody or support order
  • Premarital and post-marital agreements
  • Surrogacy

When you work with us, we communicate honestly about your case and make sure you understand your options. While we believe that family law cases should be handled with sensitivity, we don’t hesitate to fight for what is right. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us today.
