Practice Areas of Family Law We Cover


Though adoption is a happy, fulfilling part of family life, most couples have to endure long periods of waiting and possible loss, frustration and/or disappointment before they are able to expand their family through this process. Mike Youngberg is prepared to expedite the adoption procedure as much as possible, even if your case has a built-in complication, such as uncertain paternity or the past criminal conviction of one of the parents-to-be.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is, unfortunately, as common as it is repulsive. If you are experiencing threats, stalking, or physical and/or sexual assaults, you need an experienced family law attorney to help extricate you and your children from this dangerous situation. Conversely, if you are being falsely accused of domestic abuse in order to manipulate the terms of your divorce agreement, it is crucial that you recruit a family law attorney who knows how to free you from this burden of undeserved blame.


Paternity is one of those issues that can be filled with pride or terrible anxiety both on the part of the biological father and on the part of the mother. Years ago, there was a fair amount of guesswork and circumstantial evidence at play in determining biological fatherhood, but now DNA tests offer proof positive. Still, legal processes have to be followed when paternity is in question and documents have to be filed. With so much at stake, an experienced family law attorney should be supervising the case.


 Mediation is often the preferred method of dealing with divorce since it creates a far less acrimonious way for couples to decide the specifics of their divorce agreement. Favored by Texas courts because it saves court time and costs, and by couples who want to avoid angry confrontations, mediation is becoming increasingly popular. As a matter of fact, in all of Denton County and Collin County District courts, the courts have specifically encouraged parties to mediate their cases prior to final trial. Having an unbiased, well-trained mediator at the helm has taken the sting out of many previously antagonistic divorce disputes. 

It should be noted that mediation is a confidential process.  If for some reason negotiations fall apart, the mediator cannot be compelled to give testimony relative to what took place during mediation.
