I agree with other attorney. You need a strong case to modify custody. The burden is on dad to show that a change of custody is needed due to a change of circumstances or endangerment to the child. This is not easy to prove. A 6 yr. old child will never be called as a witness since most till believe in Santa Claus and can be easily manipulated to say things. Talk to an experienced family law attorney immediately.
You can try eviction. If she alleges common law marriage then that might be a problem. Go to your local small claims court and follow their eviction procedures.
If that does not work and you have a common law marriage then you will need to do a divorce with minor children.
Look on this website and hire one of the attorneys in your county.
Since you accepted federal/state assistance to raise the child, then eventually the TX A G will go after him to reimburse the taxpayers of Texas for providing assistance to your children. When you applied for government assistance, you signed over your rights for the TX A G to go after him in the future for reimbursement. In other words, accepting Medicaid means that the TX payers of Texas have been providing financial support to your children. The TX A G wants to be reimbursed.
Look on this website and hire a family law attorney. The court might not terminate his rights but, instead, order either no visitation or supervised visitation at a facility.
I've never heard that CPS provides people with attorneys. They don't.
If money is an issue try the pro bono (free) groups in your county. Look on the State Bar of Texas website for an attorney.
I agree with the other attorney. The wife needs to take all her paperwork and immediately to go an experienced family law attorney in Houston. It's difficult but possibly doable if she just learned of the divorce. Look on this website for an attorney.
Talk to a family law attorney in your county. Way too complicated to cover here. If dad has legal custody given by a judge then she must show it is in the best interests of the child to change custody.
I absolutely agree with the other 2 attorneys. A 15 year old (and her parents) cannot consent in the State of Texas to you living with you.
This is her family's problems and you should not get involved.
Please don't risk being arrested and labeled a "sex offender" for the rest of your life. It's not worth it. It will impact your ability to rent, where you live, jobs, etc.
If you don't have time to take your children to the doctor then perhaps the father should have custody. I agree with the other attorneys - you need to follow your doctor's orders. Your inability to do what is in your child's best interests might mean that if bio dad wants the kids he could easily get custody. I would talk to a family law attorney in your area. Your child's best interests are priority #1.
Normally it takes effect on the date agreed to by the parties.
Now for enforcement - that would be from the date the judge signs the order where the person is ORDERED to do certain things.
Normally in my mediations, I designate when the agreement takes effect -- sometimes it takes effect on a date other than the mediation.
I hope this helps.
