Biography

Attorney Rafee’a S. Majeed is the Owner and Managing Attorney of The Law Office of R.S. Majeed. I am a Texas licensed Family Law attorney representing clients in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I have been representing clients in this area for over 5 years, primarily handling divorces (contested and uncontested), child custody cases, child support cases, and modifications and enforcements of all family law cases.

One of my most key characteristics enabling me to be a successful attorney is adaptability. Because the laws are constantly changing, each and every case brings a unique set of challenges and issues and requires the ability to quickly adapt to keep up with the changes.

I have had success in obtaining desired results for my clients, but I also believe in having tough conversations with clients to ensure that their expectations are aligned with what the law will allow. I have a continuous dialogue with clients to discuss any changes in their situation as their case progresses and make necessary adjustments to their case as needed, if necessary.

I am proud to be a Texas lawyer. I work hard to provide and improve the level of service and representation given my clients.

Legal Answers
Q. My husband cheated and had a baby during our marriage
A: Provided you are able to provide proof of the domestic violence and the other baby, these would be grounds to ask for a disproportionate share (more than 50/50) of the community estate.

The community estate consists of any property that was acquired during the marriage (except for anything received as a gift or inheritance). The community estate has to be divided between the spouses during a divorce.

I hope this information helps. Good luck to you.
Q. At what age can a child choose who they want to live with?
A: A child can decide who they want to live with at the age of 18, when they are no longer considered a minor. In Texas, a Judge is required to speak with a child on who they would prefer to live with when that child reaches the age of 12. Between the ages of 10-12, the Judge can determine if it's necessary to speak with the child as to their preference. Either way, the Judge is not obligated to follow the child's wishes. The Judge will base their decision on what's in the child's best interest.

If the other parent lives in a two bedroom house with 8 other people, it's unlikely that the Judge will decide that it's in the child's best interest to primarily live there. However, absent more information, it's difficult to answer that question. If it is possible that placing the child with Father is better than where the child is currently residing, I can see a Judge giving Father custody.

I hope this information helps. Good luck to you!

Q. Terminating Parental Rights
A: Yes, you can petition the court to allow you to serve the Father via publication in a Termination of Parental Rights lawsuit. You will need to attach an affidavit to your petition stating the steps that you've taken to attempt to locate the Father.

I hope this information helps. Good luck to you.
