Me and my husband have lived together for 4.5 years as a common law H&W. We have no bio kids together, but have raised our 5 children as one family. Recently our marriage has been down hill. My husband announced to me a few weeks ago that he has m...
Bigamy is a criminal matter. To be honest, I doubt the District Attorney will prosecute. I don't think it's something they want to waste their time doing.
Talk to an attorney NOW. If you have a common law marriage then his second marriage is not valid.
If you divorce, then his second marriage becomes valid. In Texas you are only allowed to be married to one person at a time.
I'm 15 years old and my boyfriend is 18 years old, we've been together for about 3 years. Since I'm not 18 yet could I still marry him because he's 18? (With parental consent) Or would I have to wait till I'm 18? **please leave all personal o...
In Texas you cannot marry under the age of 16. At 16 you need parental consent. At 18 you are an adult and can do whatever you want.See question
My son's father and I recently split up after 2 years of domestic abuse from him, but purely out of spite he took our son and left out of state to Tennessee. Since neither one of us had legal custody yet, law enforcement said there was nothing tha...

After participating in my daughters premature birth and spending nights in the hospital until she could go home with her mom, I was tired and very, very naive when I allowed my daughter's mother's mother to convince me it be would be best for Isab...
You need to hire a lawyer. You can force the mother to change the kid's name to yours in Harris County. If you are in Montgomery County I assume the judges do the same thing too.
The judge won't let her change name to step-dad since if they divorce then the kid will have the last name of a non-relative.

We have been separated since 2008 and we have a 13 year old daughter. Back in 2008 we went through the whole divorce proceedings, ended up in mediation with a mediation agreement however we both ended up firing our attorneys and have pretty much ...
Both attorneys that have already answered are very knowledgeable.
I would not trust 100% any free advice on the internet.
What I would do is go see an attorney and sit down with them to make sure that everything is ok.
If not, it might cost your thousands of dollars to fix it - if you are EVEN able to do so. So a mistake could be a very expensive lesson.

I gave my ex-fiance an engagement ring with a value of $4600. She refuses to return the ring. She broke off the engagement and I agreed to break up. She has been very volatile throughout our relationship, has accused me of cheating (which is not t...
If engagement was cancelled then you are entitled to the ring. An engagement ring is a promise to marry. No marriage so no completed gift has occurred.
You can sue her in small claims court.
Now the reality, if she's not in Texas it's going to be hard to get her before a judge. It might not be worth the $4600.
You might find that the $4600 was the cheapest lesson to avoid a disaster.See question
I have joint custody and the court order restricts me to residing in a particular county and specifies I must get the written consent of the other parent to move my child out of this county. I'm getting married soon and my fiance currently lives ...
I am in Houston. So you need to talk to a family lawyer in Amarillo.
In Houston, if Dad is active in kid's life then you are not moving. Marriage is not a reason to move. Judge will give kid to Dad then you can pay child support and visit the kid.
But since I don't know your exact situation, your current court orders or the judges in Amarillo you truly need to talk to an attorney that knows your judge.
In Texas, it's presumed that it is in the kids best interest to have frequent access to both parents.See question
I have the right to consent to psychiatric and psychological treatment after consultation as well as exclusive right to medical after consultation but the father disagree with my decision. We have the standard possession order and both of us are n...
JMC is not what to focus on - you need to focus on who can do what under "rights and duties".
It sounds like you make the decision but you are required to consult with Dad first. If so, then you make the final decision.
I suggest that you take certified copy of decree to an attorney to review.
If you are allowed to change doctors then write the old doctor asking for a copy of file to be send to new doctor. Also notify doctor via cert. mail and fax that he no longer has the authority to treat the child. And, you revoke any HIPAA release that you previously signed. Keep proof that doctor received these documents.See question
I received a notice for a Child Support Modification Hearing. I have been divorced for almost 4 years, and have always paid my child support in full and on time. I have Joint Managing Conservatorship (Texas) with my ex, with her home being the pri...
Hire a lawyer immediately! It sounds like you don't have a court ordered child visitation schedule. It sounds like you need one. Please don't try to do it yourself.
