I agree with the other attorney that has already answered. If he cannot sign a legal document, then he cannot execute the required paperwork. You need to talk to an attorney that handles estate planning/probate. There are many in your area. Look on this website and on the State Bar of Texas website. I'd also ask friends and family for a referral in your area. I'm sorry that you are going through this horrible experience. All the best to you and your family.
Do you have a file stamped copy of the general denial answer you filed. if so you are safe. Just file the copy with the court. The court's recognize the imaging system is faulty. It's your responsibility to have a copy of the file stamped copy in your possession.
The custodial parent can only go back to the last court order to ask for child support.
The issue regarding while you had custody is irrelevant. You had the opportunity to ask for child support and you did not ask. It's a...
You need to file to modify the current visitation agreement.
You are in Houston so there are many fine attorneys. So look on this website & hire one. Many offer a free consultation. Most offer payment plans.
I would try to be in an attorney's office tomorrow.
I assume that you took photos of the bruises. Do you have any witnesses that are willing to come to court to also testify that they observed these bruises?
You do not need to leave. You cannot be evicted until a judge evicts you. So the landlord would need to evict you by the proper eviction process in the State of Texas.
If he leaves, you could file for divorce and ask for temporary orders. In the temporary orders you could ask for temporary spousal support in order to get some time to get your life re-started.
I would sugest that you start looking for a job now. The judge is not going to force your husband to support you for a long...
I am going to suggest that you sit down with an attorney in person and discuss your questions.
You do not mention the age of your child. If the child is a newborn then usually the visits will be short and frequent - usually not over-night until the child is 3 years old - unless you agree to it voluntarily. If you are breast-feeding, then visits will be based around the baby's feeding schedule. As you can see, a lot will be based on the child's age and needs. If the child is over the...
The waiver of service must be dated AFTER the petition for divorce was filed with the court.
Why? Because you cannot give up your rights until a lawsuit has been filed at the courthouse.
You cannot give up your rights BEFORE a lawsuit has been filed.
If the waiver of service is dated before the petition is "stamped" by the clerk at the courthouse it is not valid and will not be accepted by the judge.
In summary, it is not worth the paper it is written on.
So...have the other...
It appears that you are in Harris County and you have an attorney representing you.
The good news is that the Harris County family law judges are used to dealing with "difficult" people that don't follow court orders. Unfortunately, bi-polar people are common in family law cases. They often don't take their medication and are "difficult". Your attorney will have to work with you to hold this woman in contempt of court for not following the mediation agreement. Hopefully it has been...
If you had an attorney representing you in your divorce, the first thing that I would do would be to call that attorney and talk to him/her.
If you cannot locate that attorney or did not have an attorney representing you then you can move onto option 2. Your file was probably not "sealed" by the divorce judge. Therefore, you can go to the Harris County District Clerk's office in downtown Houston and go to the Civil Courthouse on the second floor and ask for certified copies of the final...
I assume you mean the Texas Attorney General's office will be present - not the District Attorney's office.
You truly need an attorney present to represent your interests and your children's interests. Do not expect the TX A G office to care about anything but child support.
The mediator cannot give you legal advice.
Look on this website & hire an attorney.
You are not a "single" mom - you are a "divorcing" mom!
You need to list all community property that needs to be divided!
That includes all real estate as well as "stuff" inside the house - like furniture, linens, pots & pans, appliances, etc.
Of course, I recommend that you hire an attorney to represent you.
