My sister stated (she is 9years old) that her father TAKES A BATH with her. I reported it to CPS but they did nothing, even though there is third party documentation of the outcry. Is there a type of attorney we can get to force them to ...
You can certainly sue CPS but you are wasting your time and money because they have immunity from prosecution.
If you want to modify the current arrangements then you need to file to modify.
If CPS closed the case then they did not find an immediate danger. Since the child "refused" to speak CPS cannot "force" her to speak.See question
My son's father is in jail, and his dad got a Power of Attorney for whatever reason. Does his dad, other family members, or his current wife have rights to access his visitation?
The grandfather can file a lawsuit and ask for grandparent access since his son is in jail.See question

Ask dad for his roommates full names and dates of birth. You can use www.publicdata.com to see if any of them are registered sex offenders or have a criminal records.
Of course, if your kids are uncomfortable then talk to an attorney immediately.See question

You need to re-post your question. It does not make any sense. You did not ask a question.See question
If the non custodial parent is paying child support but is not coming on regular visitation days who barely sees his kid or isn't calling for his kid can the mother file for abandonment?
I just looked in the Texas Family Code in the General Index under Abandoment of Children. See Section 262-301-307 - available on-line for free.
That section basically address abandoning a child at a hospital, or other emergency medical services provider.
What do you hope to accomplish by claiming "abandonment"?
I find that attorneys don't use the phrase but the general public uses it a lot.
You cannot make a person visit. But he is paying his child support so I doubt that a court would terminate his parental rights unless you have a new husband who is ready, willing and able to adopt the child.
Good luck!See question
trying to get divorce decree finalized -- been working on it for 90 days, spouse does not have lawyer but did file an answer to petition. thinking it may be time to change attorneys.
1. Why won't attorney do it? Is there a logical reason behind it.
2. I would not finalize divorce until house is sold. While divorce is pending you have some control. Once divorce is final if there is an issue you will need to hire a real estate attorney and sue him if he does not follow through.
3. Personally I would not want to own anything with my ex-spouse. Somehow it never goes well.
No provision was put in the divorce decree regarding this name change. At the time I did not know that you could do this and was not advised by my lawyer. Is there a way in Midland County, Texas to have the divorce decree amended with this provi...

i have a very good friend and i am making sure nothing bad is going to happen if he dates the girl Hes 16 and shes 12 by. 3 years and 6 months and 6 days difference.
A minor child cannot consent to sex until they are over the age of 17.
Even if her parents give him written permission (which I doubt they would do) to have sex with their daughter -- it is illegal in Texas and he can be a registered sex offender.
The moment he turns 17 he will be an adult for criminal purposes and would be tried as an adult under criminal law.
I would warn your good friend to be very careful. He cannot date a minor child without the parent's permission. If they say no then the answer is no.
When can they date? If her parents don't approve then she cannot date him at 17. But after she turns 18 and is no longer a child in the eyes of Texas laws.See question

It appears that the child is over the age of 18. He is an adult. If he wants to be adopted by you then he can petition the court to do so.
Or, he could do a name change - but your name would not be on the birth certificate.
He cannot use 2 names. If he changes his name then that is his new name.
Talk to an attorney.See question
