I agree with the other attorney.
You can call Adult Protective Services, if he is a danger to himself or others APS might get involved.
Unfortunately, there is not much that you can do to help him. But I agree that YOU need to go to Alanon and get support for yourself. It is horrible to watch a family member destroy their life.
You can also call your local policing agencies - police, constable and/or sheriff and see if they will help. If there is any criminal activity going on at...
Take a certified copy of your court order with you.
Just don't do anything to get arrested.
I would also take a witness willing to go to court with you to testify on your behalf. The person can sit in the vehicle and listen & watch what happens. The person can also videotape what happens discreetly.
If you want quick resolution, I urge you to hire a private attorney. There are many excellent attorneys on this website so look around and hire one. Since he is in contempt of court, the attorney would ask the court to order him to pay all or part of your attorney's fees.
He obviously understands how to "manipulate" the system, so you need some help. The TX A G office is just overwhelmed and under-staffed.
Also, since he already has a child support case ahead of you, your children...
You need to sit down with an experienced family law attorney and develop a case to modify the visits. What you are asking is difficult, but it can be done. You have to prove to the judge that the situation is horrible. Not just bad -- but truly horrible to the point of child abuse.
These case are difficult to prove because the child cannot testify in court and you are not present during these visits and all the knowledge that you have is completely heresay. Therefore, what evidence do...
You need to consult with an attorney with experience in elder law and/or probate/estate planning.
Your grandfather has been deemed incapacitated. He is no longer competent. This is very serious.
The wife is the next of kin. Then his children. You are a grand-child. You are probably not qualified to take care of him. If you try to move him and he falls and is injured, you could be arrested for endangering an elderly person.
This is not something you can do without seeking...
There are pro bono (free) legal aid groups in the Houston area -- but most are back-logged due to the huge requests for legal services. If you check this website, I answer this question at least 4 times per week regarding people looking for free legal services.
Houston Volunteer Lawyers has a veteran legal clinic but I think that is mainly for helping veterans on a one-time service such as a will or answering general questions. However, it might be worth calling them at 713-228-0732 and...
No, you can try to do it yourselves.
However, if you want to do it quickly and correctly, then I would personally hire an attorney. There are many excellent attorneys on this website. Look around and hire one.
If the two of you are in agreement and will just sign everything, it won't be that expensive or time consuming. Legal fees are expensive when the parties don't agree. When the parties agree then its quick and easy.
Good luck. Happy Thanksgiving.
I assume that you are asking about child support from her ex-husband? Your question is unclear. You do not state how old the child is. Please clarify your question & provide additional information. Are you worried that you worried that you will be ordered to pay child support on your step-child if you divorce?
There are many attorneys on this website that provide a free phone consultation, I suggest that you look around for one in your area and talk to one of them.
First, take a deep breathe.
Second, recognize that he is mad and is trying to lash out to upset mom in the only way he knows how. He currently lives out-of-state. In order to visit, he has to actually come to Katy. He has to actually do something & I suspect that he is not known for being a responsible person. He would have to be able to rent an apartment & turn on the utilities. I suspect that he does not have good credit rating so he will need money to do all of this.
Unfortunately, this happens to a lot of elderly people.
Check out the website (www.lookstoogoodtobetrue.com) for many scams. It sounds like you dad has fallen for the one where he thinks he won some money.
I had to change my father's phone number in order to stop similar calls. I ended up putting the phone in my name at his address. I never told him that I changed his phone number. I just called all his friends and relatives & gave them the new number so he continued to receive calls...
