You should update your will to include the designation of guardians for your children. If you do not want to update your wills, you and your wife can sign a Declaration of Appointment of Guardian for your children in the event of your death or incapacity. This form will at least allow you to express your wishes as to who you want to care for your children if something happens to you. You should consult with an attorney to make sure you have everything prepared correctly.
As has been stated previously, as a beneficiary your husband should be able to demand an accounting from his step-mother. Assuming this is in Texas, your husband can demand the accounting himself in writing pursuant to the Texas Property Code or he can bring the trust document to an attorney for review and the attorney can help him with the demand.
I would check to see if your daughter designated any beneficiaries on her investments or her bank accounts. If she did designate someone, these assets can pass outside of the probate process. If she did not designate beneficiaries, check with the company or bank where the accounts are located and see what they require to distribute the funds. Some companies will accept an affidavit from disinterested witnesses and not require you to go through the probate court.
I would need some more information before I can properly answer this question. For example, how old is your son? Were you taking care of him the entire time his mother was in India? The judge is going to make his decision based on the best interest of the child. Certainly, your son's mother leaving for 10 months will work in your favor, especially if you were caring for him the entire time. You need to hire an attorney to represent you in this matter, especially if your son's mom has...
You should send them a letter via certified mail disputing the debt and requesting verification of the debt, including a copy of the contract. You should also ask them to identify the original creditor. If they cannot or will not verify the debt and they continue to call you, you should consult with an attorney concerning claims you may have against them for violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.
If a lawsuit has been filed against you you need to make sure you timely file an answer to prevent a default judgment. You should try to show the Plaintiff that the property was sold and give them the information on the buyer so they can pursue them for the taxes but make sure you file an answer if you have not been able to get the Plaintiff to dismiss the lawsuit before the answer deadline.
I cannot tell from your question if you were just recently served with a petition for divorce or if you have already been divorced and need help modifying your divorce decree. If you have just been served with papers you need to visit a family law attorney to file an answer for you and help you fight for custody of your daughter. As the previous attorney stated, it is very unlikely that a divorce decree would not allow you to remove your child from the house. You should have the decree...
I am not clear what you mean when you say the probate "ended" two years ago. Was the estate officially closed with the court or was the property just distributed at that time? Was the action in Travis County? Many times estates in Travis County are not closed for years after they are filed. As the previous attorneys stated, you really do need to contact a probate attorney quickly to help you resolve this.
If you do not have a court order you need to file as soon as you can. Since your child is under the age of three, the judge may order a temporary possession schedule that takes into account who has cared for the child since he was born, the effect on the child of separation from you, etc. If you do have a court order, you need to follow the terms but you may want to consider modifying it while your child is under the age of three.
