I got power of attorney of my dad and then we moved him to a rehab a month later my brother went and got one and named himself and my other sister power of attorney is that legal?
It would depend if you dad is mentally competent. You need to talk to his doctor and determine if he was competent a month ago and currently.
A poa can be revoked at any time.
I once saw a lady that did a poa for each of her 5 children. It caused lots of problems. The lady just wanted her children to be "happy" so she'd sign anything they gave her. The kids racked up a lot in legal fees and created all sorts of problems. No one ended up "happy:.See question
I was informed by the girlfriend of my daughter's Dad that they would not be returning my child until Tuesday. In our court order it states 6 pm on Monday. My daughter's Dad has extended visitation and normally brings back our daughter on Monday...
You can call the cops but they are overworked and understaffed so don't expect them to do anything. If this is an ongoing problem then you need to talk to an attorney about filing a modification or contempt on him.
It does not matter what other people's legal documents say. The only thing that matter is what YOUR legal documents state.
If you don't know what to do then take your paperwork to an attorney to review.
All the cops will do is give you a piece of paper. Perhaps it's a better idea to have a person (adult) at your home at 6 pm (whatever time the paperwork states) to testify in court that at the time of the court ordered return the child was not returned. To file contempt most attorneys want at least 3 violations. If this is the first time he's done it then start keeping rack.
Your paperwork probably also says that if you can agree in advance that the two of you can do whatever you want and you don't have to follow the court ordered minimum visitation for Dad. Most people work it out and stay out of court. Working it out is best for the kids.See question
My child's grandparents are trying to. Fight me for custody and have a court order for her to go to school there and be with me on weekends however I live 100 miles away and did not take her back to start school because the last court order we had...
Well one option is that they could get some custody. You could be ordered to pay over $1000 month in child support and no visitation. Then They could get a writ and get kid and you could be fined or jailed to violating a court order. But that is probably your worst option.
The current court retains jurisdiction until another court can get it.
Talk to an attorney immediately.
Evading service is a bad idea.See question

There is sole or joint custody. No "full" custody in Texas. Joint custody is presumed. There are rights and duties of a parent.
Generally in Harris County you will be allowed to move within Harris county or any county contiguous to Harris County.
You need to talk to an attorney.
Texas is a huge state and judges understand that the only way to co-parent is to live close by each other.
Most courts won't let a Harris County resident even move to Austin, San Antonio or Dallas.
If you want to move then mediation is probably appropriate. You will need to give the dad something to move - such as no child support and/or expanded summer and other holiday time. And lots of phone/FaceTime visits with the child.
But the facts in your case will be better understood once you meet in person with an attorney and discuss the facts in your case.

You need to talk to family law attorney. You need to hear Texas laws.
Proving adultery is very hard. It only gets you a disproportation share of thee cojmunity estate. That might be 45/55 or 60/40. I rarely see even a 70/30 split,
Of course all assets for the past 13 years (except) inheritance) are included - that mean his retirement, all bank accounts, etc. Plus, all debt has to be divided.
Without kids you are basically shutting down the family business. This case should resolve quickly or at mediation. I trial judge does not like hearing property fights when no kids are involved.

The custodial parent is taking care of her mother that is mentally and physically disabled, will that affect how much the non-custodial parent will pay in child support? Custodial parent has a full time job and earns about 30,000 a year, receives ...
I agree with attorney Robert. The person paying child support has the child support based on his or her earnings (net resources) and a percentage based on how many kids the person supports in total. So the custodial parent's earnings are pretty much irrelevant.See question
I live in Spring, TX. My 9 month old nephew is in the state's custody in West Virginia. Taken by cps due to testing positive for drugs at birth. I started inquiring about kinship care on 7/20/16. Numerous voicemails left and emails sent. Finally w...
You should have posted your question a long time ago. You need to find a West Virginia attorney and try to intervene in the case. The problem is that you are not in West Virginia to have your home inspected. CPS has been keeping you in the dark to allow child to bond with the foster parents. I can assure you that termination and adoption has been the plan from the beginning - a new born baby is easy to place. You have wasted a lot of time. Good luck!See question

This question has been asked numerous times on the website. So you might look back on previously answers and see if you like any of them.
Engagement ring is an agreement to marry. No marriage so you get ring back. You can sue her. Selling ring is not acceptable since it was not hers to sell. Once married then the gift is completed and it belongs to her.See question

If your current court order requires mediation before litigation, then you need to act promptly. If you do nothing, then he can skip the mediation process. All he has to do is contact you and if you do not respond then he can go forward with litigation.
Most judges know that people will get a new job. So it's in his best interests to wait until he has a new job. Judges don't like to base child support on unemployment because it's temporary.
I suggest hiring an attorney to guide you through the process.

I was served divorce papers. I disagree with some of the division of property and debt.
File an :"ANSWER". They are free, to file at the courthouse. Send his attorney a copy. If he filed pro se, then send your spouse a copy. Keep a file-stamped copy for your files in case it gets "lost".
I think a free answer is on www.texaslawhelp.org
In it you just "deny" and ask that your spouse prove it. Be sure to sign and include your typed named, address, phone number, fax number and email address (fi you have all of that). The court won't call you but they need your mailing address.
Then be sure to watch your mail. If you get a certified letter, pick it up at the office office. Not picking up certified mail can hurt you.
I don't practice in your county so I don't know their local rules. You can look on-line or go visit the courthouse and ask for their local rules and any special rules that the judges has for that court.
