    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....

    Women in violent relationships leave one of two ways: Voluntarily on their feet or involuntarily in a body bag. Please get some counseling from a shelter for battered women before you let him off the hook. I know you think you know him well enough to make this decision, but I promise you that you don't. Every boyfriend that has killed a woman or her child has had a "first time" that he beat someone. Please be careful. Mr. William Daley's response to your legal question was accurate....

    CHILD SUPPORT There are two provisions in the Texas Family Code having to do with modifying child support. If the child support was substantially in compliance with child support guidelines at the time the order was signed by the court, then either of you can seek to modify child support to bring it back into compliance with guidelines if you have a change in income. Under this scenario, if your income goes up, she can ask fr more; if your income goes down, you can ask to pay less. The change...

    Have you listed all those speaking engagements and publications in your Avvo profile? If you do that, your "industry recognition" score will go up and so will your overall score. If you can get peers to endorse you, that will help too.
