My ex and I have had an agreement for 8 months through both our attorneys. His attorney was supposed to file this agreement as our temp orders with the court, but never did. Now opposing council sent standard visitation and some child support chan...
I agree - ask your lawyer to include a request for the continuance while you find new counsel.
Depending on what sort of agreement you had, and how it was done, your husband (and you) may or may not be entitled to get a final order on the agreement. Talk about this with your lawyer. Of course, if you no longer want the agreed terms as well, then just proceed with your case.See question
the amount is based on an old job that paid a lot more and it is causing me to lose my apartment because i can't afford rent and food
You need a 'material change in circumstances' from the date of the old order. If you lost your job after the order was signed, you can go and file now. If not, you can still try it, and claim hardship, but your chances of success are lower.
When you file, go ahead and request a temporary orders hearing so that at the hearing you can get an order lowering child support. That will be a temporary order until a final order is signed.
Watch out for the argument that you are intentionally unemployed. Be prepared to show how you are trying to get back to your prior standard of living and be prepared to explain how and why you lost your job. It needs to make sense, or the Judge is not going to side with you.See question
I want to know how much money they can take from my bank account. What if I only have $10 in the bank? I understand that in TX my wages can not be garnished but that they are allowed to take up to 25% of any money in my bank account. I have direct...
There are many things the creditor can do. They can garnish ALL of the money in your bank account, normally they do wait at least 30 days for the appeal deadline to pass. They can also try to take property, but normally individuals do not have property that is not exempt. Texas has a lot of exemptions for individuals.
If your name is tied to a bank account, the primary or a co-signer, they will be able to garnish the account. Also, if they find out where you are depositing the funds, they may try a turnover order for that whole account, then force you to fight to get your relative's money back.
They may also start noticing you for depositions or post-judgment discovery.
As soon as you file for bankruptcy and provide them notice, they stop collection efforts.See question
Prior to our wedding 10 years ago, my wife filed a divorce decree in Texas with a false signature of her spouse - she paid to get it notarized, but spouse never came to Texas. She insisted we filed for Citizenship, but at the same time separated ...
That isn't a claim for you to make, unfortunately. You can bring it up with the federal government. If you have known about it for a while, there is another issue - you could be tied up with any criminal investigation.See question
My son is special needs so the time that he should have him is costing me money with respite care and general support. He is supposed to take him 6 weeks out of the summer, and has never done this. This summer, he will not take him at all. The ...
Yes - you do. That does not mean the Judge has to agree with you. However, the guideline child support is for guideline visitation. If Dad is doing less, then you have a good argument to go for more child support for all that extra time. If your child is young, this could add up to serious dollars over the course of his childhood. And depending on the disability, the child support may extend past the normal 18 years.See question
TX. Oag trying to put father on child support, medical support and retroactive support. I took myself and the baby off medicaid and we are living together. Do I still have to go to court? What can I do? What if we get married? What about a case cl...
You and Mother should show up at the hearing. A united front should quickly end the process. Sometimes, people try to hoodwink the OAG's office by saying they are back together, or only one party actually thinks that they are back together and the other still wants child support and medical support. With both of you showing up, the whole situation should be cleaned up immediately.
Also, if you owe arrears, it requires a specific order to wipe it out. It sounds like you haven't had any orders before, so once you all show up, this should close down.See question
i broke my lease with my apartment complex and agreed with manager about the money. then i got a mail from a collecting agency that i owe them 1000$ more than we agreed upon however my name was written totally wrong in the mail. will this wrong na...
A name error is an easy correction, and not fatal. You need to talk with the manager directly, and dispute the debt with the collection agency immediately. If they continue to pursue it, you may need to hire an attorney to put it to rest. Otherwise this could start to affect your credit, which you don't want to happen.See question
His mother doesn't want me in the babies life at all she just wanta a lump sum of cash can somebody walk me through the process so I know what kinda of to expect
There are a number of attorneys that offer free initial consultations. Call one of their offices and see if you can't speak with one. Make sure they are licensed in Texas. With what you are trying to do, there are a number of considerations the court will take into consideration. That initial consultation can be used to get at least a 'big picture' idea. You may still need to hire an attorney to draft paperwork and push through the case.See question
I moved to Texas over a year ago, and we are getting married in a few weeks. My 5 year old son's biological father has had no contact or visitation since I was granted sole custody over 3 years ago in Oregon. The biological father has a history of...
Under Texas law you have grounds to terminate the parent-child relationship with bio dad, then have your husband adopt. It isn't an easy road. You would need to domesticate the Oregon order, then have bio dad served wherever he is, then proceed with the termination here in Texas. If you are able to complete the termination, and that is not always easy, even with the facts you state here, then you can start the adoption process. Bio dad may be interested in not having to pay child support, so you might be able to get him to agree. If he does, the process becomes much easier. This is a very technical process, especially with the domestication of the Oregon order, so you need to make sure you speak with and retain a lawyer who has done that type of thing before. Good luck.See question
We were married 15 years. I stayed home and took care of him and the house. He started a couple of mutual funds after we were married . She was the beneficiary on them when he died in Dec. Am I entitled to any part of the funds since the money th...
You have a tough road here - since the mutual funds were started after the first divorce, and she was put as the beneficiary, it is likely it passes outside of any probate and directly to her. You need to sit down with a probate attorney, someone that deals with wills/trusts/estates, and not just family law. There may be a way to assert a claim, through fraud or waste of community assets, through a probate Court. Someone that practices in the probate courts for Bexar county would have a better idea of how to proceed.See question
