I am filling out a respondent answer form, and I was wondering if Step children are included in the children of interest section, they are both under 12 years of age. Thank you in advance. Smith
No. They are not part of this case.
You truly need an attorney. I'd look on this site and hire one immediately.
Step children won't be considered in your current case.See question
A case worker falsified a affidavit to obtain a court order to remove my children nothing in the affidavit was true!
It sounds like a CPS case. So hire a lawyer or ask the judge to declare you indigent and give you a court appointed lawyer.
Do what the other lawyer did - CPS has to follow Texas time lines so there will many hearings in the next year.See question
My children's father put me on child support but I never received a paper on mail so he always knew the court date but never told me the date when I asked him his plan was for me to miss the court so he would get full custody of my kids. Today I r...
You (or send someone) to the Courthouse at 201 Caroline and get a certified copy of the judge's order. It helps if you have your case number. It usually starts with the year the case was filed. In your case that would be either 2016 -xxxxxx or 2017-xxxxxx.
That will tell you what the judge ordered.
If you don't like it and it's been less than 30 days, you can ask the judge to re-open the case. You will probably need an attorney to do this.
If more than 30 days, then your only option if you don't like it is to ask for a modification.
He was not required to tell you anything. The burden is on you once you knew there was a case pending was to do something. Like write the judge a letter objecting to moving forward without you.
Or go look at the court's file. Or hire an attorney. But it appears that you did nothing. So he got a "default" on you.
You probably need to take your papers to a Houston attorney to review them. Look on this site and hire one.See question
Ever since I was 9 weeks pregnant my baby's father hasn't given me one penny for the needs of the baby. I've had threats from him and his mother of them taking my baby from me once she is born. I'm 7 weeks away from having my baby girl, and I want...
Before you have the baby, you need to sit down in person with a family law attorney and learn Texas law.
If they are threatening you, you can get a restraining order. It's not that easy. It does not sound like the "threats" rise to the level of a protective order. However, a restraining order is easier to get. But I doubt a piece of paper is going to magically make him behave.See question
I would like to change my first name and I wondered how can I do that
I think the best place to start is www.texaslawhelp.org. It's a huge website for Texas residents that address many legal issues. I think they have the forms and info needed to file for a name change.
Or look on this site and hire a lawyer to help you.See question

The judge can only order what currently exists. The house is gone. It does not appear you have children so no child support.
I also recommend talking to an attorney. We are not allowed to make recommendations on this site so just use www.avvo.com to find a lawyer you can afford.See question
My kids biological father does pay child support but he is never around only comes to bother my kids once every year if we get lucky never takes them only promises he will and never does. My 8 year old girl does not know that he is her bio she thi...
If he is current on child support then I don't know if a judge would terminate his rights. You must pay child support but being a part of your kid's life is optional.
I'd talk to an experienced family law attorney that has done some termination/step-parent adoptions in the past. The judge MIGHT terminate if you have a strong case as to why.See question
If you bought a house and owned it outright before you got married is there any state in these United States of America that considers that house both of yours, 50/50, once you are married?
Family law is decided by each state. I don't know of any family law attorney licensed in all 50 states. So you'll need to post this question in all 50 states.
There are very few community property states in the US - I know Texas and Florida are 2.
Most states on the east coast use more of an "equitable" distribution model.See question

In Texas, they cannot take your one vehicle for debts.
You can have him sign the title over to you so that it's in your name. I assume he won't do that.
It is a community asset and therefore you both own 50% of it.
Next time, before you do anything, I suggest doing research or talking to an attorney.See question

Unless your final orders state otherwise, when it's the parent's period of possession you can do and take the kid wherever you want. Only if going outside the US with a passport is notification required.See question
