  • Does an attorney in Texas District court representing a party need to file a Notice of Appearance to be entered in the record?

    Does an attorney in Texas District court representing a party need to file a Notice of Appearance to be entered in the record and represent the party?

    William’s Answer

    the attorney will either sign a pleading or a Notice of Appearance depending on the circumstances. Hire the attorney and leave it up to him/her.

  • Is there anyway to make him stop? How do I get him out of the house? and how to I get the vehicle returned?

    I was divorced not quite 2 years ago, I presented evidence on the person my ex was and he was only awarded 4 hours supervised visits the 1st Saturday of every month. He hasn't used those rights in 7 months. He has however filed a police report t...

    William’s Answer

    I'm afraid you're going to need to get a lawyer involved. Take your decree to your prior attorney or another attorney to review. The contents of the divorce decree will be a major factor in what you can do about getting him out of the house -- or not. I've not seen it so I hesitate to give a direct answer. You may be able to ask for a receiver to sell the house or you may just be stuck with him in it.

    The harassing behavior can be fixed by a judge.

    What is the deal with the vehicle? Hopefully that is addressed in the decree, too. If not, you may or may not be able to do something about it depending on if he forged your name to some document. Can't say based on your post here.

  • Motion for continuance

    Should a request for a court order accompany a Motion for a Continuance? I file a motion for continuance, but the judge has yet to approve/deny.

    William’s Answer

    If the motion for continuance is opposed by the other side, you need to get it set for a hearing and take an order with you. If it's not opposed, prepare an order, send it to the other side to sign then file it with the court.

  • I want to know if he can force me to sell my house that I had prior to the marriage. Is he entitled to an equal half?

    I am married. Planning on divorce ASAP. I purchased the house we live in Dec 2007. We got married June 2010. I refinanced the house Oct 2013. My husband wants me to sell the house and give him 1/2 of the proceeds. He also wants 1/2 of my...

    William’s Answer

    This house is your separate property. He cannot force you to sell it, nor is he entitled to 1/2 your 401K. The portion of the 401K prior to marriage is untouchable. The contributions since date of marriage are community. You need to talk to an experienced family law attorney ASAP and figure out the game plan. Sounds to me like your husband is greedy and grasping. Don't rely on him to play fair in this. He's looking out for himself.

  • Can I get a divorce if my wife and I were married in a different state

    I'm trying to get a divorce from my wife but the issue is we both live in Texas but we were married in Chicago do we have to go back to Chicago to get a divorce or can we get one here in Texas

    William’s Answer

    Texas is the appropriate place to get your divorce, given that you both reside here. So long as you've lived here in Texas for 6 months and the county of your residence for 90 days, this is the place.

  • Can a Pro Se Plaintiff fair well on his own in a multimillion dollar class action lawsuit, Mediation starts soon.

    I am the lead Plaintiff in a multimillion dollar class action lawsuit, I fired my attorneys because of conflict of interest and I didn't want to bring in new counsel because the case is set for mediation and I believe I can recover more without c...

    William’s Answer

    If you think you can handle the mediation yourself, why are you asking such a question? You are about to step into a deep hole. Why would the defense attorneys and their clients and carriers even consider paying you big bucks when they can chew you up on n the courtroom?

  • Is there a form I can fill out to request temporary child custody and visitation orders until my divorce is final?

    I do not have money for a lawyer and I am filing for divorce myself but I need to request a hearing for temporary orders regarding the children. The court said that they are unable to inform me of how I can request temporary orders.

    William’s Answer

    Unfortunately, there is no form. You need to have a pleading on file requesting temporary orders regarding the children including conservatorship, possession and support. Then you will need to request a hearing for those orders. I think you either need to find the means to hire an attorney or do a lot of homework on the subject.

  • If a husband and wife were married and got a divorce and the title to the home was in the husband's name what happens

    couple divorced but living in the house separately and there are six children and the husband dies

    William’s Answer

    More info is needed. What provision was made in the decree as to the ownership of the residence? If it was awarded to the husband in the divorce, title will pass either to the beneficiaries named in the will or under the laws of intestate succession if he had no will.

    We went in for a family court hearing where the judge issued immediate temporary orders, stating she would have a final decision by that thursday. That was a month ago this thusday. How long does a judge have to sit on something before is...

    William’s Answer

    if a the judge "issued immediate temporary orders", then her rendition should be prepared by one of the parties' attorneys as a written order submitted for signature. If she did not make a decision but said she'd make a decision by Thursday, then one of you need to ask for a status hearing.
