Want to give wife custody no divorce
You can give her custody, but it will likely not be enforceable unless you go through the court. This means that you could later seek visitation or custody, but if you previously did not spend time with your children, that would weigh heavily against you. In short, you don't need to file any documents to allow your wife custody of your child; the purpose of filing documents or going to court is to create an enforceable order. If you don't plan to seek custody in the future, there's no reason to do that, and in any case, it would be your wife's custodial rights that the lack of an order might undermine, not your rights.See question

You will have to go through the divorce process first, and petition for custody of your kids. If it is in their best interests, the court will give you custody, and may give you permission to move out of state. If things are as you say they are, you have a very good chance of winning custody and moving.See question

You really need a lawyer here, since there's not enough information to answer your question, and since it sounds as though your ex may be dangerous. If your ex has a history of abuse, you can apply for a temporary protective order, and will likely be able to get custody. You'll have to prove the abuse through evidence such as photos, texts, emails, witness testimony, etc. Please hire a lawyer, for the sake of your safety and your family's well being.See question

Common law marriage requires a specific set of facts and may or may not be relevant here. Whether or not you are considered married, though, the court will manage your child custody petition. Texas law uses the best interests of the child standard, and if father is abusive, mother may be denied custody; however, it's rarely in the child's best interests to completely remove one parent, and you will have to prove mom is abusive. Mom's earning is not relevant here, and if she has been a stay at home mother, may be grounds for her to receive spousal support.See question

Is there a current support order? Parents have an obligation to pay child support.
If you want to modify custody, you must show that there has been a material change in your child's circumstances. It's highly unlikely the court will remove her custody altogether, since doing so is rarely in the child's best interests.
Hiring a lawyer can be stressful, but the costs of hiring a lawyer are often offset by the savings in child support, so consider saving up or taking out a loan.See question
He also totaled his truck because of neglelence with the city of carrollton what are my options
We need a lot more information to answer your question, but criminal charges are criminal charges, even if it's a small sum. He needs a lawyer, since theft can haunt your son for years, potentially even interfering with his ability to get a job or go to college. Regarding the truck issue, what do you mean this was due to negligence? Does this have anything to do with the original theft? In either scenario, you need a lawyer for both issues, and trying to deal with this on your own will almost certainly end in disaster.See question
I want joint custody of my boys.I need to know how much for a lawyer and what steps to take
The cost to hire a lawyer depends on the complexity of the case, and the lawyer's skill; better lawyers generally charge more. You can also file the petition yourself, and must show that custody of your boys is in their best interests; it's rarely in a child's best interests to have no visitation with the noncustodial parent, so keep this in mind.See question
Minor car accident. Does not have drivers license. The 22 year old who owns the car gave her permission. She is 16 years old.
Yes, she needs a lawyer. These sorts of incidents can haunt a child for decades, leading to criminal charges or interfering with her ability to drive. Please hire a lawyer who specializes in traffic law, particularly if your daughter received a citation.See question
My daughter is 17 and my son is 11, they both oftenly express to me how they would rather live with me due to the unhealthy emotional environment their mom puts them through
Without knowing a lot more, no one can answer your question. Texas law uses the best interests of the child, not the wishes of the child, to determine child custody. The court will look at things like how close you are to your children, the stability of the environment you offer, your willingness to maintain their relationship with their mother, any history of abuse, etc.See question
