We, the grandparents, have agreed with CPS to take care of our 3 grandchildren after their mother was reported for drug abuse (the father is deceased). What can CPS make us and their mother do legally and should CPS provide counseling, any kind o...
If the mother is on drugs then you do not need to wait to file suit. You could qualify based on emergency. If CPS has filed a suit and they terminate mom's parental rights then you could adopt the children and receive benefits. Based on the information provided I can not determine your current legal position. I would suggest you seek advise of an attorney immediately.See question
My ex ( and his family) keep calling CPS on me and I live in TX with my Husband who is a CPT in the ARMY. Who has a TOP SECRET CLEARANCE. Is there a way I can take My ex to court or find out if he is the one who is calling on me ? he told me he...
Though the reports are protected the reports can be obtained and many times when reading the reports you can determine who the caller might have been. Sometimes the reports will have statements like "reporter (which is redacted) believes grandchild is in danger". Easy to see from the statement that it is a grandparent. I would suggest you contact an attorney to see about obtaining the information behind all of the investigations.See question
this is just a question needing info on supervised visitation. ok lets say ex spouse parent B. is ordered by the courts to have supervised visitation minimum 1 hour a week. at her expense. ok but refuses to find a supervisor are a supervising cent...
So long as the court order requires the visiting parent to do so via a visitation center or a supervisor and that parent refuses to comply then it is not likely that the sole managibg conservator parent will be held in contempt. If the Parent in possession of the child has questions regarding the Court Order then they should seek advise of an attorney.See question
I have viewed the Family code Ch 71 definitions for Texas , and as far as i can see , this should not be considered " Family violence " . My son was there , but not involved at all .
There is not enough information in your question for me to answer but I would suggest you look at Texas Family Code Section 71 especially 71.0004 which defines family violence.See question
My child's father and I have joint custody which we settled out of court after a long battle. Things is not going his way so he is taking me back to court. I have exhausted all my financial possibilities and could not afford another lawyer. I am ...
You may not have the financial resources but I would suggest you get an attorney immediately. These kind of cases with the facts you stated above can have devastating results if not properly represented. The attorney above mentioned legal aid or the Tarrant County Bar Association which are both amazing resources but may not take your case since it is a modification. If family violence is the allegation for the modification then primary conservatorship could be changed to the other party at the temporary orders hearing if the court finds the evidence credible.See question
cps didn't protect my daughter like they should have and i want to complain or sue ?
The question does not make sense to me but anytime they CPS is involved I would suggest that you hire a competent local attorney to help you with the process. CPS has very serious power in cases involving child that include being able to terminate a parents rights. Representation by an attorney is always advised.See question
My exhusband and I have joint custody of our 1 &2 year old. He gets them every 1st, 3rd and 5th weekend, plus 2 hours on Thursdays. He never shows up, and doesn't let me know he will not be able to show up. He has no job, and no stable home so...
If this is a true and accurate fear that your ex husband is using drugs illegally then I would suggest you contact an attorney in your area immediately to seek a modification of your prior order and possibly a temporary restraining order to stop his visitation until a hearing can be held and drug testing completed. Many times I have the opposing party drug tested at the hearing so they can not avoid the test if they show up to the hearing. You have a duty to protect your children from a dangerous situation. I would suggest that if the facts stated above are accurate that something needs to be done before CPS gets involved because of his behavior. I wish you the best of results in your case. These are difficult and emotional casesSee question
I am wondering if after getting the divorce, i decide to go back to my country, I wan to take my baby with me. Is that possible? since I am the mother and I have the custody?
I would advise you to seek counsel and make sure that any paperwork that has been signed by the Judge be taken with you to that consultation. They are to many factors in this kind of case to determine by the limited information that you provided such as age if the child, number of years in this country, whether it not the child has dual citizenship, what country you are from, whether or not your husband has connections to that country and which county you currently reside in. As you can see, this is a very complicated question. Again, I would suggest you seek advise if an attorney in your county so they are better versed in what the Judges in your county are likely to do in a Final Decree.See question
Ive left USA and came back to my country, I want to divorce my American husband, is it possible that my attorney take care of all of it? I do not want to come back USA never, how can I divorce?
I agree with my the previous answers. You can proceed with divorce in the coubty your husband resides. I have seen courts allow the person to appear by phone for the final hearing and I have also seen the court allow the final prove up questions to be submitted by sworn testimony from a deposition transcript or deposition on written question.See question
His father is in GA as is the guardianship order . We are in TX and the mother is in a different part of TX . He has special needs , and we have raised him since he was 2 weeks old . I don't know if GA will let the father terminate his rights ...
There may be a need to transfer the Georgia case to Texas or to do the Termination in Georgia. If both parents are willing and you have has possession of the child for time required by adoption law than I would think it would be pretty standard to terminate the parental rights and then adopt the child. I would suggest you find an adoption attorney in your county.See question
