    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. Good luck!

  2. Hearing for a Temporary Injunction?

    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...

    No shot. Start exercising your possession time---stop making excuses. You will NEVER get custody under the facts that you shared.

    You want us to make you an expert in modifying parent-child relationships but you don't want to read or hire a professional. You're wasting your time and everyone else's with questions like this. I'll give you a hint: There's no such thing as "full custody" in Texas.

    If you have young children, yes, it can affect the final parenting plan. If you don't have children, then it probably won't affect your divorce, other than the probability that you're going to be in jail which makes it inconvenient to properly attend to a civil legal matter.

    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...

    Take whatever you got served with back to your attorney and ask what the papers mean and what you have to do. You will always be a target for a lawsuit for as long as you have the child.

    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.

    If he had paid an attorney $2,500 13 months ago, it would have saved him $8,000 in money he will probably never see. Tell him to hire an attorney ASAP to fix this.

    I'm not sure what your purpose is in trying to make the father look bad. Look bad for what? Unless you pose a serious risk to the health and safety of your child, you are going to be the joint managing conservator having the right to designate the primary residence of the child AND you are going to get guideline child support. Also, I'm not sure where you get the notion that the father is going to be held financially responsible for "gestation support" or your medical bills during pregnancy....
