I am having child visitation issues with my child's mother. There has been a few incidents already where she has refuses to give me possession of my child even on my weekends. I have threatened her with legal action if keeps refusing to follow the...
You have not mentioned if the child is a U S citizen.
A child going with the mother is not automatic. Courts look at a variety of factors including how safe if the other country. I doubt a judge will let a child go to a country in the middle of a war where civilians are being killed.
You need to talk to an attorney about the details of your case.
I assume she is NOT a Texas attorney and does not know Texas family laws. So hire someone to help you.See question
When I got married to my ex, he told me he was divorced, but months later his ex-wife sent me a message saying that she needed my husband to sign the divorce papers. I just want to know if I would have to do anything to cancel out that marriage or...
Once the first divorce goes thru then your marriage becomes valid.
So to be safe, I would file an annulment and separate from him immediately. If you know he's married and you stay then annulment is no longer an option.
I suggest that you talk to an attorney in your county.See question
I had $8500 in my bank account before I got married. I only had the cash, did not have any property. During the marriage, we kept all the money in joint accounts and spent from there. Now that we are getting divorced, can that $8500 be consider...
If you kept it in a separate account then it's easy to claim separate property. Because you comingled it now it's your burden to show that the original $8,500 still exists. So if you had a bank account that opened with $8,500 then it went up and then it went down over the years. The lowest figure is your separate property. So if the highest number was $17,000 then you can alleged that $8500 is yours. If it dropped to $1,000 then the separate property would be a max of $1,000
Of course, everything is negotiable in the divorce process.
I suggest mediation instead of litigation.
I also suggest that you hire an attorney to help you. The burden is on the two of you to know Texas law and how to apply it.See question

You can mail her a letter certified and another copy first class mail. Give her a deadline to pick up the stuff - say 30 days.
If possible, move her stuff into a room you don't use or the garage. It should be a place safe from pests and weather.
Again, you are not her warehouse. But you need to be reasonable, document everything you've done to notify her so that she cannot sue YOU to try to get $$ from YOU.
I would personally document all the ways I notified her so show that I was exceptionally reasonable and that she was the irresponsible one.
Of course, if you want the stuff out then you or your child could just take the stuff to her new residence.See question
My daughter lives with her father and step mother primarily. I have joint legal custody on a SPO. The step mother is getting a restraining order against me. Will that affect my acess to my daughter if I can't come near step mother? We go to the sa...
I think you should hire an attorney to try to get the restraining order denied.
If it's granted then it depends on what the Jude actually orders.
But if the order is AGAINST you then your life will be more complex and harder. YOU must avoid her. That means that you might not be able to attend your child's events.
And if you see her then YOU have to leave.
Otherwise, the police can be called to remove you. If the police remove you then you have violated the judge's order. If you violate the court's order then the judge won't be happy and again there will be a form of punishment. I've seen repeated violators jailed.See question
My ex-boyfriend and I reside in Houston, TX but our court case is through Appleton, WI.(where we lived before, also where our son was born) To my knowledge, we have joint custody but he has primary placement. The court order states that I have per...
If you both live in Houston Texas then you need to take your current order and have it turned into a Texas order. You will assigned to a Harris county court.
Once you lived in Texas 6 months then you qualify as a Texas resident and Texas laws apply to you and your child..
Texas judges usually find that parents need to live close together so that the parents can co-parent the child. That means if you see the kid frequently and are involved in the kid's life.
This is complex so I urge you to merely hire an attorney and do it NOW.
Once he moves then after 6 months Texas loses jurisdiction. But if he moves then it costs a lot to move back to Texas. So do it BEFORE the move.See question
My wife lied on her original petition for divorce and filed it with the county clerk. Is that perjury or not
You have not provided the info as to what you think she lied about.
The Petition for Divorce is not notarized. It is merely her opinion of the facts of the case to begin a divorce. If there is an error, it can easily be fixed in a "First Amended Petition for Divorce" that is free to file at the courthouse.
The date of separastion is irrelevant since many people separate and get back together many times before actually filing for divorce. Also, the error could be a mere typo.
If you want to consent the divorce than you need to file a legal document called "ANSWER" that basically states that you want her to prove it all.
Look on www.texaslawhelp.org for divorce forms. I don't use these free forms but I think there is an Answer in the divorce papers.
If you have assets and/or debts then you might want to hire an attorney.See question
I just found out that my wife is advertising herself on her facebook page as single. when confronted she said everyone lies on facebook and that I have no right to look at her facebook page....
Texas has no fault divorce so you don't need a reason as to why you want a divorce.
If you have a short-term marriage with no assets to divide then the best free forms are on www.texaslawhelp.org.
If you are interested, you can hire a lawyer to assist you in this process.See question

Houston courts deal with illegals on a daily basis for the past 25 years - as long as I've been a licensed attorney in Houston.
That said it has never been an issue but with the recent change in Texas laws I cannot state 100% that it won't be an issue. It would depend on the judge and the bailiff in each court.
I have never seen INS sitting in a family court room.See question

You have complex set of facts.
Child support is ordered. You must pay it whether or not you see the kid. If you don't pay, you are incurring 6% interest. Plus, it can impact your credit rating, passport and driver's license. If contempt if filed against you, you can go to jail for at least 6 months.
If you are not seeing the kid, you need to attempt to do what you were ordered to do to see the kid in the decree. Do that at least 3 - 6 times then file contempt on custodial parent. The parent won't be jailed the first contempt but the person might be ordered t pay all or part of your legal fees.
Just because other parent is naughty does not justify your naughty behavior.
Talk to an attorney immediately and have attorney explain final decree.
Don't wait do it now.See question
