He is on dependent visa and earning on EAD. once divorced he wants to take kids back home country. 1. does he have rights to keep minors 2. can we prove he is not capable to handle kids due to financial insecurity 3. will court allow to give c...
You desperately need an attorney.
If the kids are US citizens then most judges will expect the kids to stay in the US.
You obvisouly don't understand Texas family law and you need an attorney to explain how the Ft Bend County courts might rule in your case.
If you allow him to take the kids out of the country, then there is the possibility that you will never see your kids again. If the country is not a member of the Hague Convention (international child abduction) then that country has made it clear that they will not honor US court orders.
In Texas, the laws are gender neautral. So neither parent is presumed to be the best person to have custody. That said, courts in Texas expect people to co-parent their children - that means live close enough for both parents to be involved in their children's lives and to have time to spend alone with them. You might be divorcing but your kids are a part of both of you and you both need to learn how to share the children.See question
My wife and I are seperated here in Texas. She has changed the locks and will not let me back in the home. The home was purchased after we got married but the mortgage is in my mame only as well as all the utilizes. She has never worked during ou...
I don't practice in Hockley,. I suggest you talk to a family law attorney in your county.
Basically spouses are supposed to take care of each other's essential needs while married. Since Texas does not have legal separation, you are married until you are divorced.
You need to file for divorce and ask for temporary orders. Temp orders will outline what the two of you do while the divorce is pending.
If she never worked, then she needs time to get a job and get back on her feet. Even though it was a short marriage, you cannot "throw her to the street".
I suspect (but I cannot guarantee) that if you shut off all utilities to the house that the judge will be upset with you.
This is your community asset and it needs to be divided in the divorce. You will probably end up with the house but she is enttitled to reimbursement for community funds that went into the house.
Confused yet? That is why you need an attorney. Look on this site and hire one immediately.

You might want to contact an attorney in Nepal.
You also need to talk to your immigration attorney. If you don't have one, you need one.
Many cultures don't have marriage licenses. But the US recognizes their marriages.

My husband and I are trying to get a home loan but have a lot of back child support and arrears so we are not eligible. We were wondering if the custodial parent can get rid of the back child support and or the arrears owed. We have been paying we...
Basically it is 100% up to the person receiving the child support. The parent can "forgive' all or some of the debt. However, if the child has accessed any state or federal funds (Medicaid, food stamps, etc.) then the money is owed to the state and the taxpayers won't forgive the debt.
Child support is the debt that never goes away. If it's owed when a person retires and tries to get s.s. Then it will come out of social security - plus all the accrued interest which normally ends up growing to a huge number.
If the person inherits anything, the A G will swoop in and grab it.
Now the person's passport, driver's license and professional license can be non-renewable if past due child support is owed.
As you probably know, all tax refunds get grabbed and the A G computers can grab money from any bank account with that person's s.s. Number is used.
I'd talk to a lawyer but it sounds like unless the other parent will agree then homeownership is not going to happen.See question
My friends parents might be getting a divorce and she's scared she'd be placed in the foster system because her other family members will say that her parents can't take care of her.
I assume none of the people giving advice is not a Texas attorney. So their opinion is worthless.
This is adult business and no one should be discussing this case with a child. It's not the child's business. Quite frankly, trying to bring a child into adult decisions is unfair and cruel.See question

I think there is the form, Answer, somewhere on www.texaslawhelp.org. Attorneys don't use this free site so we don't know much about it.
Make an original and 3 copies to file at the courthouse. It's free to file it. Ask clerk to file stamp copy the originals as proof it was filed. Then send attorney(s) and/or the other side a copy of the Answer and keep a copy wit you to show it was filedSee question

This website is for only general info. Since no attorney has met with you and asked you relevant questions it is therefore impossible to give you advice that you can rely on. This site is worth what you paid for it - nothing.
If you live together in the same home then he does not have to pay child support.
You are not married so you cannot file for diovorce. You only option would to be to file for you to have porimary custody of the child with both of you sharing joint managing conservatorship and the rights and duties to make decisions regarding the child.
These are his parent and he is entitled to have the child's grandparents in the child's life. Their being rude to you is not enough to keep them out of their grandchild's life.
By not talking to a lawyer BEFORE the child was born, you made a bad decision to list him on the birth certificate. Now if the police are called they usually won't get involved since the birth certificate states he is "dad".
I have no idea what reckless and hateful actually means. Just because you don't like them is not enough. They would need to be harmful to the child in some way.
I know you don't want to hear it but you need to talk to an attorney in person.See question

I don't like guardianships but sometimes they become necessary.
Also, if possible, take mom to her primary care physician and have him/her determine if she is mentally competent to handle her affairs. If he will note that on her chart and put it in writing, it will mean a lot.See question
Divorce is final.
To avoid any small court lawsuits, I suggest sending your spouse a letter by certified mail and the same letter via first class mail to their last known address or their parent's address - someone who talks to the ex and will get the letter to the ex.
Give the ex 30 days to pick up the stuff or at the end of 30 days put it on the street.
You must give a time and date certain - such as on August 31, 2017, Thursday, at 5:00 pm I am disposing of your items left in my home. The items will be placed in cardboard boxes and left at the curb for trash to pick up.See question
