I live in the state of Texas. I'm trying to get out of foster care. Someone told me getting married will be me out of foster care
You cannot marry in Texas with parental consent at 16.
But September 1, 2017 it goes up to 18 under a new Texas law that the legislature just passed.
I was married in 2010 on mexico i fill for my divorce in 2013 I was already woth my actual spose In that time we were not married of course then in 01 of September of 2014 the court give the resolution my lawyer tell me that I can get married wi...
You have a common law marriage since you have both lived just like you were married. And once the divorce was finalized the new marriage is valid.See question
His mother has guardianship over his alleged child and his mom is the one that file child support on him. He requested a DNA test to find out if the child is really his. He was told that he would get the results within 3 weeks this has been over a...
No. Maybe it's just taking awhile. There should be a written report that excludes him or says he is dad - if in the 90% range he is dad. I've never seen one that is 100%.See question
i had my daughter when i was 16 years old. at that time, i was living with her father. during that time, i was physically abused by him. i ended up leaving and took him to mediation for child support. when he was asked what days he wanted for visi...
Do you have any orders signed by a judge? You state that you went to mediation but the mediated settlement agreement is used to write an order for the judge to sign.
An attorney would need to look at your court orders because the visitation should be set out in that legal document.
If there are no "orders" then there is no court ordered visitation by the non-custodial parent.
You might want to add some additional info to your question -
1. age of child now?
2. how long you have been in Houston?
3. where did you used to live & where was the mediation done?
4. was it an attorney general case?
5. how long has it been since he last saw the child?
6. does he know you live in Houston Texas now?
7. does he pay child support? if not, how long has it been since you last received money?
I got married in May 2006 (11 years ago) in Fort Worth Texas. After 5 months (Oct) I returned back to my country as my spouse (US Citizen) promised me to file a petition to get me back. But nothing happened and since Oct 2006 I have never seen her...
You are no longer a Texas resident. If she is no longer in Texas then you cannot file here. It is irrelevant where you married - people move all over the world so where you marry is not relevant == it's where you currently live.
Talk to an attorney in your country.See question
I want to read a statement at the end of the preceding. The divorce will be final. But I would like to get my statement on the record. Is this possible in an uncontested divorce?
If it is uncontested then normally there is no court reporter to record the testimony.
If you ask for a court reporter then it's recorded by no one will ever see the transcript unless you pay the court reporter to type it up. It is not cheap. Expect to pay hundreds of dollars. Most charge per page. Since it's written in a specific form a few minutes can be many pages when typed.
Sometimes a judge will let you read a 1-2 minute speech but it's up to the judge.
In your statement if you inform the judge of a reason not to grant the divorce then it's up to the judge and the judge can deny the divorce and dismiss the case. So I'd be very careful what I tell the judge under oath.See question

You need to hire an attorney to help you. You need to file for divorce and ask for temporary orders. It might end up more complex than the usual divorce is the woman won't return the child to you. If she has had the child in her home more than 6 months then she might have the legal right to ask the judge for custody of the child. So I'd hire an attorney immediately. Look on this site and hire one as soon as possible.See question

I have a lot of bad news for you. Sorry.
Even with parental consent the age is 16 -- until September 1st when it goes to 18. After September 1, 2017, no one can get married in Texas until they turn 18.
If your boyfriend is more than 2 years older than you then it could be statutory rape and he could end up a registered sex offender for life!
Your boyfriend might want to consult with a criminal lawyer about having sex with you when you were 14 or 15.
You are a minor and cannot consent to sex until you reach 17. Your parents can go to the District Attorney and attempt to press charges since you are not old enough to consent to sex.See question
Ok it sounds bad but let me explain. About a year ago my sons mother was asking for help paying her dental bills. She had a long history of stringing me along, cheating on me, being a pretty low individual in general. I still like her though becau...
As usual I agree with Attorney Laster.
Only the District Attorney of Harris County can charge you.
If they contact you, lawyer up quick. I would not talk to a police officer or D. A. without an attorney present. Why? Because I watch a lot of police shows and murder shows on t.v.
Also, today it's almost impossible to prove that you actually sent that text. In fact, last year at Advanced Family Law we learned about the numerous websites that sell fake bank statements, tax returns, paystubs, Facebook posts, emails and text messages. It is very scary.
They would have to prove that YOU actually sent it. It happened to an attorney I know that she left her own phone out on a table and went to the bathroom. Her "friend" picked it up and took some "nasty" photos on her phone as a joke!
So you have learned a valuable lesson - no good deed goes unpunished. You know you are dealing with snakes so if you let them "bite" you again you then you are at fault. (I only let a snake bite me once and then I never touch them again.)See question
Hi, I separated from my ex wife due to her infidelity in 2009, (8 years ago) she moved with the guy and had a baby in 2011, (he is the legal father in BC & he named baby after him) We got divorced 2 years later and I got married to my actual wife....
I agree with Attorney Laster.
Did your divorce address the child when you divorced?
Since you were married you were the "presumed father" and paternity should have been addressed in that legal document.
If a court found you NOT to be the father, then it would be the argument that I'd use if I was your attorney that this has been adjudicated by a court.
If he was not included in your divorce, now it might be an expensive lesson on doing legal documents correctly the first time.
Merely listing someone on a birth cert. is not enough these days. DNA was ordered in almost every case in 2013.
In re-reading your question, this is actually quite a complex question since a man was listed on b.c. for the past 6 years. Again, this might not even be an issue for you to be involved in.
Hire an attorney. Tell your wife about the lawsuit and legal fees. Hiding things is never a good idea. She might be unhappy but better to be in the loop than not.See question
