  • Do I still use the basic paperwork for no children or joint property?

    We've been separated for years. I couldn't find him to get a divorce. He now lives in another country. I now have a child with someone else.

    Alyssandra’s Answer

    Do not try to do your own divorce. You have a child with another man and parentage of that child must be addressed in your divorce. Find a Houston attorney on here and set up a consultation ASAP.

    You need to speak with an attorney ASAP. There are expenses that you are obligated to pay on the property and you will have to reimburse the stepparent for- mortgage payments, taxes, etc. if stepparent only has a life estate. As a homeowner, you are also responsible for some maintenance. Consult with an attorney stat.

  • I have a married boyfriend. He wants to divorce his wife.

    She doesn't wanna divorce him at any coast.She knows about our affair but I know that she doesn't have much proves.My boyfriend says that if he files divorce against her on the bases of her quarrelsome nature & if she in return accuses me in court...

    Alyssandra’s Answer

    In Texas, courts do not haul the mistress into court and punish them for having an affair. At worst, you might have to testify but it would not be used against you. It would only be used against him. To be honest, I think he is lying to you and is suffering from a syndrome known as "I want to have my cake and eat it, too." He doesn't really want a divorce- he wants to have you both. The best thing for you to do is to kick him to the curb and meet a man who is not married and mature enough to be in an honest relationship.

  • Child Custody: My ex violated the Divorce Decree as far as our kids and schools and custody. Whare are my options?

    Joint custody, the decree states the Kids remain in "X" School District. The ex changed my 14 yr old son to the school by her house, which is 50 miles away. He said he wants to live with her. Our decree says it has to be agree upon by both par...

    You are going to need an attorney for this one. First, you could file an Enforcement action to enforce the terms of the order, but if your son wants to live with mom trying to hold her in contempt will only make your son angrier with you. Since he is 14, if he tells the judge he wants to live with Mom, then absent some compelling evidence that Mom is unfit the child will most likely get to live with Mom. The best approach would be to hire counsel and try to work out an agreement outside of court.

  • Can I change my child's last name (child is 1).? What are my rights as a mother?

    Both mother & father's names are on birth certificate . Child was given father's last name as indicated on birth certificate. Parents are not married & are not in a good relationship. Father does not provide child support regularly. Father & his...

    Alyssandra’s Answer

    You can file for a name change but father has to be notified and he has to consent. If he doesn't consent, the name change won't be granted. The courts generally support the father's right to have the child carry the father's last name. However, you can probably successfully argue for a name change that adds your last name before dad;s last name so the child carries both last names. Best of luck to you!

    I have three children who are living with their mother and I am paying child support for them. It was discovered by child support enforcement that one of my children's DNA did not match my DNA.I still see my 2nd child as my son and after 13years o...

    Alyssandra’s Answer

    If you have a court order that has you paying child support for all three children and orders possession and access for all three children, then go pick up all three kids and take your order with you. Hire an attorney and hold mom in contempt if she withholds the second child from you. Hire an attorney ASAP to protect your rights.

  • Communication through lawyers

    My ex recently requested that I send all correspondence about my daughter to her lawyer as she is not willing to work with me and co-parent. Can I do this legally? He does not represent me and I can not afford a lawyer of my own. I do, however,...

    Alyssandra’s Answer

    Keep in mind that any communications that you send through her attorney can and will be used against you if inappropriate, so be very careful what you say and how you say it. It would be prudent for you to invest in your own attorney at this point.

  • Can i file a peace bond on my son

    I am a mother of an adult son in which I have served time for domestic violence on him in 2008. He hit bad times i allowed him to come live with me. For the past 2 months he has unwanted traffic coming to my house and smoke weed all day. He refu...

    Alyssandra’s Answer

    If he has drugs in your home you can try one of two approaches. You can call the police and tell them your son has drugs in your home and you want him and the drugs out of your home and they will probably come arrest him, or you can evict him. To evict him, you will need to draft a Three day Notice to Vacate for committing illegal acts on your property and hand deliver it to him. After three days, go down to the small claims court and file a forcible detainer and entry case seeking to have him removed for violating an oral lease not to use drugs in your home. The court will hopefully order him out. I think you would be wise to hire an attorney well-versed in landlord-tenant law to handle this matter for you.
