Typically your orders will tell you the exchange point. That is something that can be modified if necessary. The starting point would be Tex. Fam. Code 153.316.See question
Among several other things, a mother has submitted an affidavit of residency to place the children in a school district far away from the father to alienate him during a custody debate, using another person's address. This was notorized and submi...
That by itself will not do it, but will serve as evidence (among whatever else you gather) that she is not an appropriate custodian due to her actions.See question

You will have to hire an attorney... sorry. You could attempt to change the orders so that she no longer has any visitation, or only supervised, but you need to sit down with an attorney and explain the situation to hear all of the options.See question
how is it viewed if a father relinquishes his custody because it is just too difficult to deal with the child's mother? And if the mother agrees will the court sign the motion for the father to no longer be financially responsible?
It can be done, but typically someone else has to step in to be financially responsible, or the child and the mother cannot be using any form of state aid.See question
In my divorce decree, some 20 yrs. ago, it stated that my ex would continue to pay child support on our daughter, who is profoundly mentally handicapped when every time to collect or find out his address (he lives in a small town that only uses PO...
You have a long road ahead, but it is possible. Get a judgment and treat it as a collection matter. Sue him, show a court he simply will never comply with court orders, then force a receivership situation. Really you should hire an attorney because it isn't easy and needs to be done properly for it to work.See question

As long as it takes for them to determine whether the child is in danger. You can hire an attorney to help close this issue by setting it for final trial, but keep in mind that Judges will tend to play it safe, which in this case means forcing you to build a long history of being clean and mentally stable. Good luck.See question
The biological father has already signed an Acknowledgement of Paternity and the husband has signed a Denial of Paternity. Court is asking for a case to give precedent and I don't know where to find one. Any help would be appreciated.
You can still get divorced, you might just need to clear up the child support issue later or ask that the court grant the divorce and abate child support pending DNA testing once the child is born.See question
my child is displaying all the characteristics of PAS. how does the judge deal with this when my child no longer wants to see me after being alienation from me for so long?
One thing to keep in mind is that PAS is VERY VERY hard to prove and Judge's tend to take the allegation with a HUGE grain of salt.
Second, kids will be kids and they act strange sometimes.
If you still choose to pursue PAS, you should hire an attorney. That is much tougher than most child custody issues. Good luck.See question
My Ex drank a lot and I really think that he might have a drinking problem so when we drew up the custody papers I put in that we both could not have more than 1 alcohol beverage in a 24hr period. well I know for a fact from pics and other friends...
If you can prove he is violating a court order, with video, witnesses, or whatever, you can file a motion for enforcement and sanctions to put this issue in front of the judge and show your ex that you are serious. If you don't pursue this, he is going to keep on with his normal behavior.
You should always talk to your ex first, to show that you tried. Good luck.See question
isnt denying visitation to a parent a form of child abuse to a elementary school aged child?
No. Many times we might wish it were - it would make our jobs easier.
You need to get visitation orders through temporary orders or a final order. If you have orders with visitation, you need to file a motion for enforcement and for sanctions, request make-up time, and put this bad behavior in front of the judge.See question
