Our divorce decree stated we agreed the the father has residential/primary custody and neither party pays child support. I pay for the daycare when the child's with me if it's not the primary daycare. I, the mother, pay for health care costs. Our ...
Parents in Texas are supposed to support their kids. The fact that you do not collect child support for the other child will not sway the judge. You have 2 kids so you will pay less than 20% - more like 17.5% of your net resources. You will also be expected to pay or reimburse the dad for health insurance.
The agreement to not pay child support is only good until the other parent files to get child support.
You might want to consider mediation.
If you had a child during the marriage then your husband have to prove it's not his kid. Many judges require the other dad to pay child support and bring him into the lawsuit.See question
My common law husband has passed and the medical examiner contacted me to relay the message. His family was only informed by me. Upon his mother hearing the news and not believing he had passed I provided her with the examiners phone number and sh...
Hire a lawyer NOW. Normally this issue goes away because the legal fees are overwhelming. Death often brings out the worst in people. Perhaps his minister or priest could help.
You will need proof of a common law marriage. Normally something in writing - joint tax returns, listed as spouse on lease or mortgage, listing you as a spouse on insurance, etc.See question
I tried to get divorce but she wants to make the process longer.I got a hearing date and report it to her.My question is since I told her the time for the finial hearing, is she able to postpone the time? and if yes How long can she postpone the d...
Normally merely telling someone is not enough. You need proof - like certified mail that she had notice.
I suspect you don't have an attorney. You might need one.
The judge can dismiss your divorce is he/she wants to do so and you get to start all over.
Good luck,See question
We have been married for 20 years, he stop my health insurance at his job ,moved into another house. Left me with no Income, no Job
You need to find a family law attorney to represent you. You need temporary orders to have a judge order him to help you financially and put you back on his insurance. He was dumb to remove you - if you are injured he will be 100% responsible for the costs since he cancelled your insurance and you are still married. Look on this site and hire an attorney.See question
I am the non-custodial father of 2 boys, 11 and 14. I pick up my kids every 1st, 3rd, 5th weekend on Fridays at her house as stated in the divorce decree. She is supposed to pick up Sundays at my house. She tells the boys she will pick them up Mon...
If she does not pick up the kids then you don't need to return them. If you keep them 6 months then you can file for custody of the kids. It's a pity that the two of you are unable to co-parent together. I recommend that you look around for an attorney on this website.See question
My wife and I are separated. She moved in with her parents about 2 months ago. She left and came back a few days later to get some of her stuff, as she still has a key to the apartment and refuses to remove herself from the lease. I was at work wh...
The police won't make her give them back. It's not their business to determine ownership. Odds are they will say it's civil and go to see the judge.
You need an attorney to help you. If you show up at trial then the judge can order it but it does not mean that she will actually return it.
Quite frankly used console and washer and dryer might not be worth it.See question
We have two children together. He was deported like 4-5 years ago and hasn't come back?
I recommend hiring a family law attorney that has done it before. Basically it will be a divorce by publication but the judges require certain things and it's probably too hard to try to do it yourself. It will take longer than usual (normally minimum of 61 days) but the judge will appoint an attorney to try to locate him. Only after publication and a search for him (done by the attorney appointed by the Judge) can the divorce be granted. Don't waste your money on a pi or looking yourself - it must be done the way the Harris County judges want. Good luck.See question
My custody order is filed through Fort Bend County in Texas. In the possession and access part of the order it states that I "shall have the right to possession of the child on weekends throughout the year beginning at 6 PM on the first third and...
You can have someone else drop the child off. Most decrees say that any competent adult can pick up and return the child - it does not have to be you. So read your decree.
You don't state the child's age but if old enough you can just drop the kid off. You cannot be required to keep the child if you don't want to do so. Visitation is a privilege and it's not a requirement. If you don't pick up the kid for a visit you are not in contempt of court. But if you don't pay child support then the judge can hold you in contempt of court.
You might want to meet with an attorney.
What a pity that the two of you cannot work together for the benefit of the child.See question

You need to be clean, sober, employed and fiscally responsible for probably 3-5 years in order to try to regain custody.
You have violated the ORDERS from the JUDGE and most will be unhappy. You are in contempt of the JUDGE's orders.
You will be lucky to get SAFE program visits (that you have to pay for or get expelled from their program) with your kid.
I recommend that you talk to an attorney in person.
You need to start paying child support for your kid.
I would also suggest attending on-going drug classes to learn how to stay off drugs and not get tempted to use again.
You have a LONG road to go but it's possible it can be done. But what you have shown in the past is irresponsibility and the inability to make good decisions.See question

It appears you have an attorney. So call him/her.
I suspect that you will go to jail. How long will be up to the judge since you have numerous violations and each can be 6 months in jail.See question
