Coronavirus, Divorce and Family Law:

We are open!

Higdon Hardy & Zuflacht is taking a safe but proactive approach to the Coronavirus situation in our law practice. We are working every day to represent our family law clients. At the same time, we are following best practices to protect the health of our employees and our clients. To read more please Click Here

All our employees understand that they should not be working if they are sick, and in particular, that they should not be at our office while sick.

To further protect our employees and our clients we are encouraging meetings by phone, Zoom, Skype or similar means. We have represented clients from out of state and out of the country in this manner for many years. Our clients often prefer this to traveling to our office.

We are also working with the divorce and civil courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.

To further protect the health of all concerned, all our attorneys and staff have the technology and capability to work on cases and with clients from home as well as at the office. Your phone calls will be returned. Your emails will be answered. Your case deadlines will be met.

The days ahead may be a challenge. We do not yet know the extent to which particular courts will curtail trials or even the extent to which HHZ will have clients and other guests come to our office. We will continue to work to take care of our clients’ cases and to take on new matters and clients. We will simply manage your case in less traditional, more technology-driven ways, that are safer for your health and ours.

Thank you for your trust.

San Antonio Military Custody Issues Attorney

Child custody battles are very difficult and complicated for everyone involved, regardless of who is involved. However, when one or more parent is in the military, the rules of child custody become even more complex. Military custody cases are largely more complicated because the parents and the court must take into account possible deployments or base reassignments.

Sorting through military custody issues is a daunting task since they involve the consideration of many hypothetical situations. The San Antonio Military Custody Issues attorneys at Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, L.L.P. can walk you through the uncertainties that come along with military custody, all while maintaining your child’s best interest in mind.

Military Custody and Family Care Plans

In any cases where both parents are military members, or if a military parent has sole custody, a “family care plan” is required. The basic function of a family care plan is to determine what will happen to the child or children of military members in the case of deployment. All family care plans need to include:

  • A short-term caretaker
  • A long-term caretaker
  • Care provision details

A short-term caretaker is someone you trust to care for your child in the event that you are gone for less than 30 days, while a long-term caretaker would be needed for a military deployment of longer than 30 days. Care provision details refer to the general instructions on how to care for the child. If you are in the process of creating a family care plan, an attorney can be of great assistance to you. The care plan is an important legal document that determines the type of care your child will receive in the event of your deployment, and it is not to be taken lightly.
