    I would strongly urge you to hire an attorney. You have now purchased a home. If you do the paperwork improperly, your new asset's title could be "clouded" in the future when you go to sell it. It is possible that a title company (or a future purchaser) might be unwilling to close a sale of this home if you have not done everything properly now. Also, when you applied for the loan did you lie on your application? Did you state that you were still married? Is the title listing you as...

    There is a legal case pending against you. You need to ask first thing that the case be transferred because the child lives in another county. You desperately need an attorney immediately. If you do not appear at the court hearing he wins automatic custody. Hopefully I've scared you enough to immediately hire a family law attorney to help you.

    You need to post under Louisiana real estate since Louisiana law controls. It appears that your son is over the age of 18 and he signed the real estate contract. You, therefore, have no legal rights. Of course, your last sentence is vital -- there are no openings at other apt complexes. And, I suspect the apt complex knows this important fact. Good luck to adjusting to your home without a teen-ager in it.

    Yes, of course, it does. You will have someone to guide you through the divorce process in an effective manner. Otherwise, your case could linger for a long time or get dismissed by the judge. Just be sure to hire a family law attorney with experience and not someone that does not handle family law cases on a regular basis in Ft. Bend County.

    It might be too late. She has to be mentally competent. You need to talk to her doctor and confirm that she is mentally competent to execute legal documents. Then you need to file an estate planning attorney willing to come to hospice to do the paperwork and meet with her. I am sorry that you are going through this. Also, even if you do these legal documents it does not mean that her bank or other financial institutions will accept the legal document. With my own mother, I had to take...

    What does your divorce decree state regarding visitors of the opposite sex spending the night when the child is there? If you have that clause then the lady would need to leave the house everytime the child spends the night. I have no idea what you mean that "She is mean to him". That can mean very different things to different people. You also don't include the child's age. If she tells him it's time for bed & that makes her "mean" that would be very different than if she is beating...

    I agree with the other attorney that answered - read your decree or take it to a family law attorney that can explain it to you. She might want you to pay but if you are not ordered then it's her expense. There are plenty of excellent family law attorneys in Houston - look on this website and hire one.

    I agree with the other 2 lawyers. Emancipation (in Texas called "removal of disabilities") has many requirements to have a judge sign. You can read the TX Family Code about the details in order to see if you even qualify. But your parents would both have to be served and they could object to the legal process. Judges do these cases slowly so they are expensive. For example, only do uncontested ones for $5,000 plus all costs. You cannot control what your mother does. She can call the...

    If police or sheriff won't make him leave then you will have to evict him. Go to the closest small claims court and find out how to do this. They will have the forms and the steps you have to take to accomplish this. I hope this helps. If you have limited money, you might try Houston Volunteer Lawyers at 713-228-0732 for free legal help. You might also try the 3 local law schools in Houston - Univ. of Houston, Texas Southern and South Texas College of Law - see if one of them will...
