It is hard to prevail when you don't have an attorney. Most people who represent themselves do not know the legal standards the judges use (It's not as simple as "best interest of the children"). I am very familiar with the judges in Collin County and can assure you they will follow the law and do their best. But they need to be presented with exactly the right evidence in the right court-admissible forms in order to give you what you want and your children need.See question

I don't completely understand from your question who has the child. Whoever has actual custody of the child can seek to collect her SSI benefits.See question

First, don't get hung up on free consultations. Those are just sales sessions most of the time. Good attorneys are busy and busy people get paid for their work. You pay a doctor for a diagnosis even if you don't elect treatment. No reason to expect that a good attorney is going to give away time for free.
Second, grandparents have very limited rights in Texas. Based on your description above, your only possible basis for a lawsuit would be under section 102.009(a)(3) of the Texas Family Code whereby you would claim that you had actual care, control, and possession of the children for at least 6 months, ending not more than 90 days ago. If that is true, then you could file a suit seeking primary managing conservatorship of the children.See question
If a man establishes legal residency in TX although his wife and child never lived in TX and remained in CA, can TX still be successfully defended as the proper jurisdiction for divorce, alimony, and/or child support proceedings for suits initiate...
In Texas a divorce with children is really two lawsuits.
The divorce can definitely take place in Texas as long as the Texas resident files first.
The child custody case will probably have to be decided in CA based on the UCCJEA, which states that the property jurisdiction for child custody is the state in which the child has lived for the past 6 months.
How and whether child support is addressed will depend on who files the custody action. If you file it in CA, you will be ordered to pay child support. If she files in CA for child support, they will have to find some constitutional basis to proceed--and will probably have to move the child support issues to TX.See question

I am currently 7 months pregnant, expecting to deliver in Feb of 2017. The biological father has not been involved at all, and has done questionable things, such as threaten suicide if i didn't abort, claim the child is not his, and even said he ...
This is going to sound facetious, but I'm serious: If you can move several counties away before you have the baby. Then, once the baby is born, have the AG set up a child support order. The child support order will not have a geographic restriction if you live 3 or 4 counties away from dad when the child is born.
If moving is not an option, then avoid court and just don't let him come near the child. For him to get court-ordered rights, he'll have to put himself on child support. And if he's not on the birth certificate and fails to file a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity, he will have no rights without first going to court.
But if it does go to court, you'll have to put on a case explaining why joint conservatorship is not in your child's best interest. If you have all these messages from him in writing, print them off and get them to a couple of friends so that you can't lose them and you can use them in court.
The "threat" to be involved is probably a tactic to get you to stay OUT of child support court because he knows that if you get child support, he gets rights. Never mind that he will never exercise those rights. He's just trying to scare you out of child support.See question

You're in a tough spot. Consider suing the maintenance guy for defamation. Suing the CA-based landlord is going to be an expensive chore. Take due heed of possible retaliation.See question

First, get the Attorney General to go after him for child support.
Second, stop releasing the child or children to the grandparents. If dad is not permitted to see the children, then don't release the children to anyone.See question
My ex boyfriend does not let me see my daughter. He has been withholding her from me now for almost a month and refuses me to video chat or talk to her on the phone.
Go get her. Bring help with you if you need to.
He's afraid of paying child support, I suppose.
And file for custody with the court ASAP. You need an attorney.See question
My sister was knocked unconscious by her children's father, and he went to jail. His family retaliated and told her they would put CPS in her life. One month later, the GP kidnapped her children and filed a custody lawsuit against her. She went to...
Best course of action is to hire an attorney who knows how to work with CPS. If that's not an option, try DVAP (that's Legal Aid in Dallas County). If that doesn't work, then your sister needs to meet with the CPS case worker and find out what it will take to resolve the case.
If these charges are ruled out, your sister should file an injunction suit against the GP. She probably won't win, but she can make the point that GP is filing false claims and see if she can get an admonishment for that.See question
