The Houston Bar Association's Family Law Handbook contains Harris County-specific resources and information, with useful general material about Texas family law.
The handbook, at the link above, is in a question-and-answer format, divided into family law topics. All family law issues cannot be addressed in one handbook. But the handbook may give you a broad overview of your rights and remedies.
This handbook is based on Texas law. It is meant to inform you, not advise you. This is a general summary of the laws as they existed in 2019. It contains only general, basic information. Exceptions may exist. You should seek legal advice from an attorney to advise you in your particular situation.
