What to do depends on what you want to happen.
Do you want the court to order the parent to quit his or her job in order to drop the child off closer to when the doors open?
Do you want the court to order the school to open the doors earlier?
Do you want the court to take the child from that parent and place the child in foster care?
Deciding what action to take depends on what outcome you seek.
Saying that the judge runs a "kangaroo court" and then wanting to know if you should ask the alleged kangaroo to change his or her ruling seems odd to me. If you think the court is manifestly unfair and you are convinced you preserved error for appeal, then appeal.
If you are not sure whether you preserved the court's error (if any), then (a) file a motion for new trial on the issue of legal fees; (b) get a copy of the billing statements/ledger; (c) get your motion set for a hearing as soon...
F irst three steps:
1. CONSULT with a good family lawyer and explain all the facts in detail. That way the attorney can give you an idea of your options and the range of possible outcomes.
2. HIRE a good family law attorney. Custody battles are complicated and it is easy for one to slip out from under you.
3. FILE a petition to establish paternity and set up conservatorship, a possession schedule, and child support.
I am very familiar with the courts in Dallas county and can assure...
I am very familiar with the courts and the clerk's office in Collin County so here are some specific pointers:
1. Look you case up: You can look at your case file by going to this link: http://www.co.collin.tx.us/courts/case_information.jsp. Click on "Case Search - Basic". Put in his information (you only want civil and district case information) and let it search. When it finds your case, it will show up at the bottom of the screen. Click on that case and you'll see everything that the...
The first wife's divorce is the first wife's problem.
You can file a motion to have your marriage declared void, which you should do ASAP. If you don't do that, then as soon as the first marriage is dissolved, your marriage will spring to life and you will start accumulating community property that you might have to split with him one day.
File your motion to declare marriage void ASAP and get him out of your life.
I'm sorry you're facing all these problems while isolated from your family.
I think you're going to have to chose between protecting your credit rating and living closer to your support group.
You can probably sue him to recover the apartment rent, or at least half of it, but I don't know that he'll ever pay. A sympathetic JP court judge might just give him the beat down he needs.
The papers you were served with should say exactly what the purpose of the hearing is. It could be something as simple as injunctions against bad-mouthing each other during the pendancy of the matter, not taking the child out of state during the pendancy of the matter, or something has horrific as denying you any access at all to the child for a period of time.
You should immediately take your papers to a consultation with a local family law attorney who can read them for you and give you...
You don't even have to file a waiver. You can file an answer/general denial and then not worry about the terms of the waiver. It is true that most of the waivers that I see (and that I draft) ask the person signing the waiver to give up almost all their rights in the litigation.
You do NOT have to list all the property and debts in your counterpetition nor does she have to list them all in her petition. You just need to allege that there is community property and that the court should make a...
You probably don't have standing to file a lawsuit to take custody of the child. But if the mom is harassing you, file a civil suit against her or take it to the DA. Your story doesn't have to stop with the police officers. If the child is being abused or neglected, which it sounds like she is, you have a duty to report the situation to CPS. Make sure CPS knows that you are a potential household to take the child in if they decide that removal is in the child's best interest.
