    An Affidavit of Nondisclosure is something the Attorney General's office uses when there is an allegation of family violence. The Attorney General will not include any information about the Custoidal Parent or the child other than their names on pleadings, waivers and orders. If the father contests the nondisclosure then the Court will determine whether the information should be disclosed or not. It is possible that he will be able to get visitation with the child. It is very important that...

    If your AG case and your divorce are in the same county I suggest you make an appointment with the Managing Attorney in the Attorney General's office where your case is located. Bring all of the information regarding your divorce ie. petition for divorce, final decree etc. and the information regarding your AG case ie. final orders and explain what you need. Typically the AG will intervene into the divorce and file a Motion and Order to consolidate the cases. When you contact the AG's office...

    Is he listed as the child's father on the birth certificate because you were married to him or because the two of you signed an Acknowledgement of Paternity? If so, he has the same rights that you have as a parent. If not, without a court order he does not have any rights because he is not the child's legal father. I suggest you consult with an attorney about the best way to handle this.

    Your parents may want to consider a collaborative divorce. This process allows the parties to address the divorce issues through a series of joint meetings with their collaborative attorneys, a financial professional and a communications coach. The collaborative process is private and confidential and allows the parties to reach agreements in their divorce without the necessity of Court intervention. The financial professional is neutral and will gather all of the information from the...

    First, there are specific requirements for a request for a de novo hearing. It must be filed within seven working days of the party receiving notice of the associate judge's ruling and must specify the issues that will be presented to the District Court. The De Novo hearing is a brand new trial on the issues that are being appealed. Witnesses can be called to testify and evidence can be presented. The transcript from the prior hearing can also be used. I strongly suggest that you at least...

    The answer to your question is that it really depends on what your prior custody order states. The law requires the right to make educational decisions be allocated in a custody order and you wil need to review your order thoroughly to make that determination. If she has that right exclusively or independently then you will have to seek court intervention to modify the terms and conditions of that right unless it is addressed somewhere else in the custody order. If the right to make...

    If there is a court order that specifies a visitation schedule for your husband and the child's mother is violating the schedule then there are options available through the court system to enforce the order. As far as child support is concerned- in Texas it is calculated based on a formula that takes into consideration other children your husband has a legal obligation to support, the cost of medical insurance for the child and your husband's income. While the Court can consider other...

    If you have a court order that requires him to pay child support then someone needs to hire an attorney to file an enforcement action against him for non payment of child support. If you do not have a court order then you need to get one. The Attorney General offers services for both child support establishment and enforcement if you cannot afford to retain an attorney. If there is a child support order and he is working, the Attorney General can issue a wage garnishment order so that the...

    If the order granting you legal custody is a Texas order and your ex is violating the Court order by removing her from the state and hiding her from you then you need to seek a habeas corpus in the court of continuing jurisdiction (the court that issued the last court order regarding the child). You will have to be able to locate your ex in order to serve her with the habeas corpus. Time is of the essence so act quickly. Additionally I would contact law enforcement in your area.

    You can always hire a private attorney to assist you in your collection efforts. As far as your issue with the child support office- I assume you are talking about the Office of the Attorney General- I suggest you call and schedule a meeting with the office Ombudsman (customer liason). Each office has one so don't let them tell you they don't. Express your concerns to the Ombudsman and find out why you are not getting child support regularly and have them explain to you what they are doing...
