We was together for about 6 months and I have not seen him sense 2007 and I need to know if we're still married or not
If it was a formal marriage, then yes you are probably still married. (He could be dead or he might have divorced you using some shady tactics in another jurisdiction.) To be safe, I would file for divorce to just resolve your marital status.
If it was a "common law" or "informal" marriage, then you are presumptively not married and he would have to come back and file a lawsuit to establish the marriage, which he would probably only do if he saw you on TV with a big, fat LOTTO check! ;-)See question
He was deported in March and did not tell me he was illegal and our relationship has fallen apart. I have asked him for a divorce for several weeks now but he continues to threaten my family and friends stating that he will kill them if I leave hi...
Take his threats to the police and see if they will help you get a magistrate's protective order against him. The order is only a sheet of paper (that is not bullet-proof) but it does give the police the authority to arrest him if he comes near you. Without a PO, if he comes around, the police will probably urge him to just move along. The PO puts him in jail.
If you actually know where he is or how to contact him, you need to just straight up file for divorce and get him served. If you can't get him served, then eventually you will have to serve him by posting or publication and an attorney ad litem will be hired to represent him and try to locate him.
Alternatively, there is no property and no children, you might consider annulment on the basis of fraud. You still have the same service issues, but some people get less worked up over annulment than divorce for some reason.See question

If you don't have a job, get one as soon as you can because you need to insulate yourself from his hatefulness to the greatest extent that you can.
Is your name on the deed to the house? If so, he can't sell it. If not, you need to file and get a restraining order against him selling the house. When you file, you can file an affidavit of inability to pay court costs, ask for temporary orders in your pleadings, and get the judge to order him to pay your legal fees, if there is any money laying around.See question
Me and my pregnant wife ate almost a whole bag of pistachios (not paying any attention to if there was anything inside it). I started to get some bad stomach pains and stopped eating them. My wife kept eating and noticed there was a worm and what ...
To have a case, you have to be able to prove (a) that you suffered some damages (physical harm, loss of money); and (b) that the defendant's conduct was the cause of your damages.
In your case, you'd need to be able to prove that the bag of nuts was not fresh when you opened them. I would expect a rich producer of nuts to allege that you probably opened the nuts and let them spoil. Or to allege that you are at least partially responsible for your problems because who eats spoiled nuts and doesn't notice? I'm not saying that's fair or accurate...I'm saying that's a tactic they'd probably use.
They'd probably also point out that you didn't immediately call a poison control center or otherwise seek immediate medical help but instead raced to a web site to find out how to get money. (Believe me, they'll find this question and answers even though you posted anonymously.)See question
Do I file in that county, or the new county I live in? Will my lawyer even if retained be notified if the other party files anything? Also, if the other parent has moved to another state can they file anything there, or does it have to stay in...
If there was an order signed by the judge in your custody case, then, yes, you still file in that court.
If the children have moved away with the other parent and have lived in the other state for more than 6 months, your case will get transferred to that state after you file it.
If you want to file an enforcement action, then irrespective of where your children live, enforcement must be filed in the state where the other parent lives.
I don't know if your attorney will be notified or not of new filings--depends on the county. My assumption would be that your former attorney would NOT be notified.See question
Not having much, if not at all, visitation with my grandchild. My son has passed away and his wife is now raising the kid. My son's widow doesn't like my family members and she will not allow the kid to visit if any other family member is around, ...
You cannot succeed in a suit for visitation unless you can satisfy the standing statute contained in Section 102.004(b) of the Texas Family Code:
"An original suit requesting possessory conservatorship may not be filed by a grandparent or other person. However, the court may grant a grandparent or other person deemed by the court to have had substantial past contact with the child leave to intervene in a pending suit filed by a person authorized to do so under this subchapter if there is satisfactory proof to the court that appointment of a parent as a sole managing conservator or both parents as joint managing conservators would significantly impair the child’s physical health or emotional development."
Any rights based on the death of a parent only kick in when BOTH parents are dead.
So, based on the your current facts, you can't even file the suit.
However, if she is found guilty of killing the father, then you would have standing to file a suit. Your best bet now is to try to get along with her and get as much time with the children as you can, even if you have to bend to her rules.See question
So I was granted custody and child support. So my daughter went on a field trip and her grandmother went with her and she was told by the school that she could not take my daughter away from the trip and that she needed to ride back to the school ...
I would start by sending a letter to grandmother and the school. If that doesn't do the trick, then I would consider seeking a permanent injunction against her picking up your child during your periods of possession. Keep in mind that she can pick your child up during HIS possession time. So if his possession began with the child was released from school that day, it was probably OK for the grandmother to take her.
You should invest in a consultation with a good family law attorney on this. The reason I say this is that you are walking a thin line between causing trouble where trouble doesn't need to be caused AND having a grandmother who thinks she can get away with whatever she wants. You need to have someone carefully look at your order and the facts in your particular case and make sure you're land on the right side of that line.
There is no reason to stoke up trouble . . . but sometimes these grandparents need to get put in their place early on.See question

I'm getting divorce and the house is in his name. In the temp orders the judge said I can stay in the house. I agreed in a rule 11!agreement 2 weeks ago to move by tonight at midnight, but I can't find anywhere to go. I've been denied by everybody...
If you have a court order saying you can stay, then stay. If you signed a Rule 11 saying you would move, then send the other attorney a written notice that you are withdrawing from the Rule 11 agreement as it relates to relocating because you cannot fulfill the terms of the agreement due to not currently having viable housing options available. File a copy of the notice with district clerk. You can withdraw your consent to a Rule 11 agreement at any time.
And...if your spouse has any cash or credit cards, ask the judge to give your some money to hire your own attorney. It's nonsense for you to go through this without an attorney, particularly if he has one.See question
We adopted child who is receiving ssi for mental disability. I notified ssi of adoption over phone only. Just learned our child's case is being reviewed for 18 redetermination. Concerned maybe I did not follow proper reporting.
Get a certified copy of your adoption order and set up a meeting with your child's case worker, if your child has one, or with someone in the local office that administers SSI. Try to straighten things out that way. If it gets tough, then contact an SSI attorney, such as http://www.amickandstevens.com/Attorney-Profiles/Laura-A-Gadness.shtml. I recommend her because she handled my sister-in-law's Social Security Disability case and did an amazing job. You might call Ms. Gadness for a consultation now just to make sure you're handling everything right.See question
