2 kids. Cps is unfair and no knowledge, giving kids back to abusive father and court apt lawyer for the kids phone and address are no good. How can I get them new pro bono lawyer?
Getting a court appointed attorney removed is not easy. It's not impossible but the judge has to do it.
Look on the State Bar of Texas website for the attorney that has been appointed for the kids. Their address and phone number is usually accurate on that site.
You can also look at the court's file and see what address, email and phone numbers they are using.
Lastly, google them. Most attorneys have websites.
It sounds like you are not involved in the CPS case. I cannot tell since you did not include much info. If you go to court, then you can tell your attorney that there is a problem with the amicus attorney for the kids.
You might also call CASA, CPS or the Harris County Attorney's office that is handling this case. I bet they know where the attorney is.
I would also suggest that if you don't have an attorney you need one. If you have an attorney, I would delete this post and call your attorney. When I litigated I would withdraw from anyone that went on the internet to post questions since it shows that they are "shopping" or they did not trust my advice.See question
I have custody of my 12 year old daughter, both physical and legal (100%). The bio father does not have visitation rights. My daughter wants to be adopted by her Step-dad. Do we have to contact the bio father to complete an adoption and name chang...
Parental rights are sacred. It is not easy to take away a person's parental rights. That said, it can be done but it's not fast or easy. There are many hurdles you need to jump. Judges do not want an adoption to be reversed in the future so they make sure everything is in order.
Many years ago superior courts in Texas reversed a bunch of adoptions because of sloppy paperwork. Can you imagine the heartbreak of children and the adopted parents when the children were removed from their homes and given back to their bio. parents that were complete strangers to them? A judge once told me that it would never happen again under his watch and he was very very picky to make sure that no other court could reverse him.
Look on tihis site and hire a lawyer that has done them. It's not easy and I personally would not hire a newly licensed attorney to do this. You need someone with some experience and that knows the judges in Harris County.See question
I have a 14 year old daughter whom I have primary custody of. My ex is supposed to pay $200 a month in child support. She has given me $200 this year. My daughter has accumulated some hospital/Dr. Bills and my ex owes me $4,000 which is her half. ...
Unfortunately, you will need to file contempt on her. The judge might give you some of your attorney fees.
Document that you have given her notice of how past due she is in child support plus proof that you sent her (dr. bill, insurance portion paid, what you paid, etc.) everything regarding the medical reimbursement.
You should probably email and send it cert. mail with a letter mailed first class with proof of first class mailing. When the certified letter comes back do NOT open it. Just keep it. If you emailed and have proof of first class mailing then the judge will know she got it.
Hire an experienced attorney to help you since contempt is quasi-criminal in nature and it must be pled with specificity.See question
I heard ALL hospital in Texas drug test! Why if theres no cause;? If so can u reject it due the procedure that might be performed or would you have to sign consent forms??
I don't think any of the lawyers answering your questions are doctors.
I think you've been posting 3-4 times now the same questions about pregnancy, drugs and hospitals - right?
So talk to your primary care physician. Quite frankly, they probably know hospital procedures better than a lawyer.
If you refuse blood work, I suspect that it will be presumed that you and the child are going to test positive and CPS will automatically be called.
If you test positive, if you have other children they will be removed from your home too. This is serious.See question
My ex-husband continues to list his girlfriend as the legal guardian/second parent and the emergency contact on registration forms for my daughter. He does not list me anywhere. In my decree it explicitly says that I am to be listed on any and a...
I absolutely agree with Attorney Moore. Take a certified copy to school, doctors, daycare, etc. and show them that you are to be listed and that gf is not a relative.
Since you are the primary custodian, I don't even understand how this is a problem.
You can certainly file contempt on your ex for doing this. But even a judge cannot make difficult (aka crazy) people behave. And it probably won't be worth the legal fees.
As always, consult with an attorney about the details of your specific case.See question
The term "when it rains it pours" is my current situation. With my daughters father out of prison, it is necessary for my husband and I to move, to keep our family safe. This has to be done before anything is filed for court, because the filing wi...
I think I talked to you on the phone today.
If there are no court orders in place then you are FREE to move. After 6 months, the case transfer to wherever the kid lives. I cannot make a referral on this website but if I talked to you today then call the attorney I suggested and she can discuss this situation in greater detail.
Of course, you need someone to help you with your pending TX A G case. My referral has a great relatinship with them and will actually take their cases. Many attorneys won't touch TX A G cases because that agency is such a nightmare to work with - even attorneys get the run around these days.
Good luck!See question
what I say to the judge when I go before the judge as to why I am seeking the annulment.. I have a script that I can just read but that serves for a divorce not an annulment
I agree that you might need an attorney.
Basically under oath you have to state every item in the petition for annulment. Things like your name, his name, date of marriage, date of separation, cause of separation, no kids, no property, and ask the judge to grant the annulment.
I have only done one annulment in 25 years so I'm not very familiar with them. You can always read the Texas Family Practice Manual where the master Texas family law forms are - look at a law library and I bet they have a copy.
Good luck!See question
Back about 18 years ago my husband got some paperwork from a different state that claimed he was the father of a child. We asked for a paternity test as the child was 13 at the time and this was the first time we were informed of him. They sa...
The issue that you have not mentioned that might be more important is that the child might inherit if he is his son. Therefore, Husband might want to talk to an estate planning attorney about writing a will that limits how much he might inherit or exclusive him 100%.
If Husband dies without a will then things might be very complicated for you. The State of Texas has a chart for people that die without wills. Many times the distribution to relatives is NOT what the person wanted but the judge must follow Texas law.
So you have more to worry about than just child support. And since he's over 30 in Texas you are safe on child support. But since I don't practice anywhere but Texas I don't know other state laws. If the son and mom lived in another state you might want to ask this question in that state(s).See question
My Husbands baby mother put him on child support; at the meeting with their negotiations; they verbally agreed that she would drop the baby off at his then residence(parents house) a 15 minute drive and he would drop the baby off at her residence....
Without seeing your legal document, no attorney can fully answer your question.
If it states that the parent beginning possession will pick up the child, then the other parent only has to have the child ready at the specified location.
I'd have a certified copy of the legal document with me at all times - at home, in car, etc. since it sounds like the police might be called. If so, have it marked on where she has to pick up the child.
If Dad wants to do it then it's great. But realize that if done frequently the court might decide to modify this in the future. So cooperating can sometimes come back to bite you.
If she does not pick up the child, then he can eventually go to court and ask to modify the current document giving him primary custody.See question
I am conducting a competitive analysis and am calling competitors for insight. I provide my nickname instead of my formal name.
If you are merely calling people to ask questions or see how they handle new business, you can use any name you want or even a "fake" name.
If you are going to attempt to do something illegal (like steal company secrets) I would only remind you that technology is everywhere (I watch a lot of murder t.v.) and you can easily be traced these days.See question
