I filed for divorce 18 months ago and it became dismissed. During this time my spouse has made no contact with we or our son (we live 15 minutes apart from each other). Last month he calls and tells me he wants to help with child support. We go to...
Call an experienced family law attorney. You need to get divorced and have child support ordered. After talking to an attorney in depth the abandonment claim might not be worth the effort.See question
In my paperwork it says that if the custodial parent moves out of the county they filed the child support paperwork in that she needs to pick my son up from my residence. She has moved out of the original county since the order was rendered but re...
So keep the child and call an attorney to represent you. Sounds like you need a modification. Good luck!See question
I have been informed that I must now go meet with CPS because my ex says I'm causing the kids mental distress and being violent. She did this before a year ago and CPS cleared me, but she still kept the kids away for a year. I've now taken her to ...
So the new court orders have not been signed by the judge - correct?
So you need to file a motion to enter the orders and have a hearing to get the judge to sign the legal document.
I think you need an attorney to help you.See question
my wife filed the original petition. we have temporary orders in place regarding child custody and support. my children are 12 & 5 and with my wife. she has since moved in a boyfriend and the children hate being with him. he is watching them w...
Many Harris County judges only appoint an amicus attorney if custody is an issue. Since you don't have an attorney I can only suspect that you have no pleadings on file and therefore custody is not an issue.
I would humbly suggest that you hire a lawyer.
Someone will need to ask the judge to appoint an attorney for the kids. And, you both get to pay for that attorney/
If the kids are stressed, take them to therapy!See question
My wife and I are getting a divorce soon. I know the whole process can be long and expensive if we go through the court system. That's why we're most likely going to do it through mediation but I'm not sure if the whole process can be done though ...
I mediate full-time.
As an attorney - mediator, I can only wear one hat. So if I mediate and we reach an agreement I write up the agreement. However, you need an attorney to do the legal paperwork for the judge to sign and finish the case.
I just finished a pro se mediation a few minute ago. It took 4 hours. I charged $600 total. Now they go to an attorney of their choice to do the paperwork.See question
A test was taken at the age of 9. My mom brought both me and my sister to the same facility less than days apart to be tested. My mother have reason to believe that because our name and socials are almost identical she think my test was some how m...
If everyone agrees it's easy and cheap these days. There are many companies on-line. But no court will order a person to do the test.See question
My daughter was involved in an intimate relationship with a total a$$hole (age 17) and he took pictures of her nude and in intimate acts (which she didn't know about). He also requested that she send pics to him, which she stupidly did. She beli...
I would contact the Harris County District Attorney to see if they will take charges against him.
Also, immediately call your local police, sheriff or constable to see what they might be willing to do.
Lastly, also talk to an attorney that handles restraining orders and perhaps criminal too.
At 17, he is an adult under Texas criminal laws. At 16, she is a minor.See question
My son's mother turned over custody back in August because she was moving and he did not want to live with her. He currently goes every other weekend to her house but despises going. He is 13 and does he have to go even if he hates going?
Unless a judge determines otherwise, a child must visit both parents until they turn 18.
I assume you have legal custody otherwise she can show up anytime with the police, sheriff and constable and remove him.
Merely "turning over custody" without doing the paperwork is just not enough. If you have not done the paperwork for the judge to sign, do it now!See question
Both of us agree on divorce but we just had a child. I'm unemployed and due to that I would need something reasonable since I'll be the one filing for it.

use www.texaslawhelp.org to find the forms then fill them out. And you both sign them.
Since he filed an answer he has to sign the decree and appear in court. he should have signed a Waiver of Service in order to say that he agrees with the process. An answer shows that he is not going to agree and that you need a trial.
the judge does NOT do the paperwork. You do. Or, hire an attorney.See question
