I got divorced in December of 2015. My husband is a Banker and has always handled all the finances. He did here also. He totalled all our debt and subtracted it from our assets and divided the difference. It never occurred to me to ask for spousa...
If your divorce was finalized in December 2015 you had 30 days from when the judge signed the final decree to ask for a new trial. It's too late. The court has lost jurisdiction over your case.
My Wife and I were married in Texas in 2009. She recently left me (no fights no problems or anything) to move to Va. I found out that she was married to another person in 2006 just before he went to prison. He has recently gotten out of prison and...
Do what the other 2 attorneys recommend and file for divorce.See question
My ex-boyfriend didn't take our breakup well. He is relentlessly contacting me with vicious, hateful messages through emails and texts. He also posts on social media for all to see that I'm a "wh*re, and a useless person", calling me psycho, batsh...
I agree with the other 2 attorneys excellent answers.
1. Make copies of everything.
2. Quit responding to him.
3. Get off all social media.
4. Go to the police.
5. Develop a safety plan.
6. Notice your employer and neighbors of the stalking situation and ask them to be on alert
7. He will escalate if he cannot contact you
8. Be careful! Murder suicides happen all the time.
9. A restraining order is easier to get than a protective order but neither will protect you from fists, chairs, bullets, knives, etc.
10. Change your routine
11. If possible, move.
12. It's hard to out think someone who is "crazy". I know. I've been stalked. I had to go into hiding. Within 2 weeks of changing my Texas Driver's license it showed up on the internet on a free website. Scared me! I defeated everything I'd put into place.
13. Get security system at home. Go to Best Buy or a similar store. They cost less than $900 and are easy to install and use - no wiring required.
14. Do internet research on stalking and follow the advice.
15. You cannot ever be too careful. You are not paranoid - YOU ARE IN DANGER - BE CAREFUL!
He owns the home we have been married 4 yrs. I have put money into this hime for improvements. If he dies what happens and or can he will this and I'm out on my butt. In texas what rights do I have
I agree with other attorney.
But if you have a life estate you must keep the house in good condition and pay all taxes and other costs in order to live there.
You truly need to talk to an attorney in your county in person.See question
I was hand given divorce papers by m spouse on October 18th in Denver, CO. Looking at the papers, it was stamped by the District Clerk Harris County on September 14, 2016. My spouse works in Colorado and everything seems to be done electronical...
Being handed legal papers is not sufficient "service". So take the papers to an attorney immediately to file an "answer" and perhaps a counter petition for divorce.
A divorce is texas must be on file for at least 60 days before a divorce can be granted. Nothing magical happens on day 60.
But divorces in Harris County move quickly depending on the court your case is assigned to so don't wait.See question
Lawyer is now saying in Texas only the custodial parent can do this. Is this correct?
In Harris County, most courts will not terminate a parent's rights unless there is a new person to fulfill the role.
Terminating rights is not an option to get out of paying child support.
Judges do terminate parental rights sometimes but it is rare in this county.See question
My ex is adamant that child support did not have to be filed in our divorce. He has filed a modification to change custody so then child support can be decreased. He was not aware of the child support amount when the divorce happened. He signed a...
There are plenty of good attorneys in Houston. This website does not allow us to make referrals so you need to look around and call around.
PS - This is a common event and the judges hear it all the time.
If he is behind in child support then it will be more difficult for him to get custody.See question
I have an attorneys and they said they have tryed serving him by a professional process server for months now....he avoids the server every time.......I've asked my attorney what else can we do, they say nothing, so I feel someone is blowing smoke...
No you cannot have a friend try to serve and you cannot just mail it to him.
Most private process servers can be "creative" in service. I've authorized that the process server try to deliver flowers or a beautiful wrapped gift box to the person and insist that they hand it to him in person. That usually works.
So talk to your attorney or hire a new one.
Good luck!See question
My papers say that I may determine the child's primary residency without regard to geographic location but my ex keeps threatening me that if I leave the county let alone a hundred miles away that he is going to get a lawyer and he's going to figh...
You can try. He can file a modification within 6 months and ask a court to force the kids to stay in Brazoria County. It would be up to the judge. If he's a very involved dad then the judge might make the kids come back. Then you would have visitation rights and he would have primary custody.
You probably need to talk to an attorney before you move.
You might consider mediating this case to save money.See question
My wife filed for divorce. The home was purchased before we were married so it is her separate property. But, the mortgage was paid by both of us and I can prove that. Am I entitled to be reimbursed for the money I paid towards to house while w...
You need an attorney.
The house is her separate property unless you are on the deed.
You might be entitled to some reimbursement. There is a complicated formula to determine what you might be entitled to.
Basically in a divorce the things you can into the marrige with is your separate property. The things you purchased is community. Everything is negotiable in a divorce.
I recently did a mediation where a husband gave his wife some separate property in exchange for keeping 100% of his community retirement. So you can see that nothing is ever written in stone.
Look on this site and hire someone.See question
