  1. What would it take and how much would it cost to make sure the mother of my child legally has to stay here in Texas?

    I would need significantly more facts before I could provide proper advice. I suggest scheduling a full consultation with an attorney before you act. That being said, here is an overview: you would need to seek an Order of the Court containing a "geographic restriction" on the child's residence. This restriction would stop either parent from moving the child out of the designated geographic area (typically, a particular county, a county and surrounding counties, an independent school...

    Texas may relinquish jurisdiction over the case to Colorado if you could show that the child no longer has significant connection with Texas and that substantial evidence is no longer available in this state concerning the child's care, protection, training, and personal relationships. If/when you speak with a Colorado attorney about modifying your Divorce Decree, you could refer him/her to the Texas Family Code, Chapter 152, Subchapter C, sections 152.201 through 152.204 for more information....

  3. What state will child support be determind?

    I agree with prior answer regarding which state will determine child support. Talk to an attorney and tell them how long the children lived in Florida. This will help the attorney to advise you regarding state jurisdiction. Regarding the name calling, it is generally best to refrain from name calling (less "fuel for your wife's fire"), but I doubt an isolated incident of name calling would cause a Judge to restrict your girlfriend from being around the kids. The name calling becomes more...

    I highly suggest you obtain legal counsel. As the other attorney stated, you may be eligible for pro bono services through an organization such as Legal Aid based on your financial position and the history of domestic violence and drug use. Look up the Legal Aid organization in your area and give them a call. They will need you to provide them with some basic information so that they can determine whether to accept your case. Although more facts would be needed for a more precise analysis...

  5. Amicus Attorney

    If the Mediation Agreement has not been turned into an Order of the Court, it should be soon. Then you could file a Motion for Enforcement of that Order to enforce the visitation schedule that you and your ex agreed upon in mediation. I tend to agree that an Amicus Attorney does sound appropriate for you case. If your ex makes significantly more money than you do, then I would try to make this clear to the Judge so that the Judge will consider ordering your ex to pay for the Amicus.

    If your husband filed for divorce, you should have been served with an Original Petition for Divorce (soon after the Petition was filed) that would have informed you that he was seeking a divorce. The Original Petition would have the cause number at the top of the first page that would make it easy to find out whether a Final Order was entered which granted a divorce. If your husband filed for divorce, he would have been required to inform you of any hearings on the matter. Unless he simply...

    You can file for divorce as a "pro se" litigant (meaning you are not represented by an attorney). There is usually a law library and a staff attorney at the county courthouse that can help you fill out the proper paperwork (i.e., the Original Petition for Divorce) and show you where to file it. You can also request that the filing fee be waived. If you want to do your own research on the process, take a look at www.texaslawhelp.org as well. There is a lot of good information on this site,...

  8. How do I file for temporary custody of my children?

    1 lawyer answer

    I suggest that you go ahead and file for divorce in your county. Since your husband is agreeable to your out-of-country travel right now, you can have an "Agreed Temporary Order" drafted that includes all the provisions that reflect your agreement regarding your divorce, i.e., leaving the United States with the children, making decisions concerning the children's welfare while you are away, conservatorship, visitation, travel, child support, and health insurance. You and your husband would both...

    Wait at least 30 days after finalizing your divorce to get married again. See sections 2.002 and 2.004 of the Texas Family Code. (http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/FA/htm/FA.2.htm). Specifically, read section 2.004(b)(4).

  10. When deciding to get a divorce because she cheated on me. we have kids should I move out or should I stay?

    That is a tough question and ultimately one that you have to decide. Divorce is definitely difficult on children. But a relationship without trust can also be hard on children. If you move forward with the divorce, the parameters of both custody and division of property (house) will be at issue. It appears that the trend in family law is moving toward shared custody, barring behaviors that would endanger the safety and well being of the children. It appears that Michigan is a "no fault" divorce...
