  • Can my husband sign the final decree of divorce at the same time he signs the wavier of citation?

    My husband has agreed to sign all papers. But to make it easier on me and him I would like for everything to be signed.

    Yes, but the Waiver has to be on file for 10 days before the Decree can be entered by the Court. If 60 days has passed since the filing of the divorce petition and you want to expedite the entry of the Decree, then have your husband sign and file an Answer rather than a Waiver.

    Good answers above. To add to them: Texas courts will usually award attorney's fees to the movant of a motion to enforce. However, it is NOT easy to collect on a judgment against an individual in Texas. Most individuals are "judgment-proof" in Texas.

    I agree with Mr. Tisdale. To add to his answer: Texas courts will usually award attorney's fees to the movant of a motion to enforce. However, it is NOT easy to collect on a judgment against an individual in Texas. Most individuals are "judgment-proof" in Texas.

  • How do I add a second middle name to my daughter's name?

    I'm not changing any names, just adding. Does my husband have to be present? Do I need to hire an attorney for this?

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Mr. Hardy is correct. To add a bit to his answer: if your daughter is under 18 (and I assume she is), then the court will likely not require her to get her fingerprints taken and sent to the DPS in Austin for a background check, which is typically required for adult name changes.

    As the others stated, you need to file a workers compensation claim. Note: You MUST provide the employer notice of the claim within 30 days. Provide notice to your HR rep and get written confirmation of that notice. They should then send you to a medical provider (often a Concentra Clinic) to be checked out.

  • I got into an accident and am getting settlement. i am told the health insurance gets to take their money and i get no money to

    cover my medical expenses. Is this correct? Why would I even hire a lawyer to process my claim if I'm getting absolutely no money.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Not if you have an experienced lawyer handle those negotiations. The lawyer will negotiate a reduction of the amount owed to the health insurance company to put money in your pocket. That's why you need to hire an attorney on those types of claims.

  • How can I make sure my life insurance goes directly to my 7yr. old daughter? My spouse owes back child support in Texas.

    in Texas.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    You need to create a family living trust and have the trust named as the beneficiary of that life insurance policy. Simply naming your daughter as the sole beneficiary creates problems and court oversight and undue expenses in the event she is a minor when/if you pass away.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    You definitely may have a case against the facility for negligent supervision of that child, especially in light of the fact that the facility failed to take reasonable actions in light of the disciplinary issue.
