I presently live in Maryland, in 2 weeks will make a year of my marriage but we don't live together. Is It possIble to make an annulment.
If you currently live in Maryland then talk to a Maryland attorney. Just because you married in Texas does not mean that Texas now has jurisdiction over you if you moved over 6 months ago.See question
to come get him,mom left him with grandparents before dad could get there.Gpas refuse to let dad get child,police will not help.Gpas held son then 1 month later filed petition to terminate both mom and dad's rights and adopt.Son didn't live with t...
It sounds like Dad is conservator of the child. Grandparents got visitation rights. Mom did not get any visitation rights. If a judge signed it then it is the current order that everyone is required to follow. If someone wants to change it, then a modification is required.
The grandparents now have some parental rights. It is now rare to try to eliminate these rights in the future now that the door has been opened to the grandparents.
I've seen it many times before. If the judge signed it, then it's "legal".See question
So, I guess this may be a sort of ethical legal issue. We went though a motion of enforcement for mom withholding the kid's for a year. Home study (in our favor) was ordered, trial was set, we settled in mediation in Oct 2015 to increase our chanc...
You admit that you have illegally obtained evidence. You hacked her account. No attorney that is current on the law will touch you or your evidence. In other states, attorneys have been disbarred for allowing illegally obtained evidence to be in their possession.
You desperately need an experienced family law attorney to guide you.
Also, at the last Advanced Family Law course in August 2016 an entire session was held on "fake" evidence. So now attorneys and judges are going to be more careful about allowing digital information into evidence.
You can accomplish what you want by other means. It appears you've spent a lot of time and energy on obtaining this illegal evidence - which by the way is a FEDERAL crime but that's another topic for another day. Feel free to "google" hacking and the federal crime. It should scare you.
If this question is "discovered" by the other parent or the other parent's attorney, it could come back to "bite" you. You might want to just delete it.See question
We currently have a lawyer with no contract and we are very very disappointed with the representation she has given us. Currently we are waiting for her to finalize the affidavit of voluntary relinquishment with changes requested by the biological...
An step-parent adoption and termination are 2 lawsuits. It's not easy. Your husband will need to undergo a criminal background check, you need a social study done and an attorney will be appointed to represent the interests of the child. Judges don't terminate a person's parental rights just because they want them terminated. Termination is very serious and judges make you jump through a bunch of hoops to make sure it's done properly. I would not attempt to do a case like this without an experienced lawyer handling it.
Good luck!See question
I need to get a place of my own, but I am still legally married. We are separated and about to begin the process of divorce. He is not cooperative, but I need to buy a house for my daughter and I. If I purchase a house with my own money and my own...
I would not buy a house while still married. Even if you put that you are "single" on the legal paperwork it is still community property. You are potentially creating a difficult situation to fix in the future. Talk to an attorney before you do anything.See question
I was put on child support but me and my ex came to an agreement for her to take me off. But she wants me to sign over rights. What are the steps to go through this process? And will I be able to get taken off if she asks to take me off?
Not a simple answer.
1. If she took any federal or state money then the taxpayers of Texas want you to reimburse them. Once she applied for any benefit, she signed her rights over to the TX A G office to get you to reimburse Texas taxpayers.
2. Termination is not an easy process in Harris County. Judges take this very seriously. If you terminate your rights then you are "dead" to your child. You will have no legal right to ever contact the child until the child turns 18 and is an adult.
3. You need an attorney to make sure that your rights are protected. Your parental rights can be terminated and you can still be ordered to pay child support. I'm sure that is not what you want.
4. I have no idea what "signing over your rights" means. It's not a legal term in Texas. Does it mean she wants sole custody? That does not mean a judge will allow your child support to stop. It's the public policy of Texas for both parents to support their kids.

The child is and always has lived with her grandmother. The Childs mother no longer lives in the home and comes occasionally to see or visit with the child. These visits usually consists of her driving to a parking lot and falling asleep while the...
It appears based on what you have written that grandma has the standing to ask a court to grant her custody. So she needs to find a family law attorney to help her.
I don't recommend calling CPS. If the child is safe, then they don't do anything. But if they don't like grandma for any reason then they can just remove the child and put the child in foster care. I doubt that is what you want. CPS won't help grandma get legal custody. She needs to hire a private attorney to help her.See question
I left the home because he is abusive But he won't let me take our two children What do I do?
You need an attorney immediately. You can contact places like Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA) and Houston College of Law (formerly South Texas College of Law) or Houston Volunteer Lawyers for a free attorney.
Also, look on this website. Domestic Abuse is unfortunately very common in Houston. Any experienced family law attorney has dealt with it before.
You need to act fast to show that you did not voluntarily walk away from your kids. Your attorney can ask for him to pay some of you legal fees (if a judge agrees and orders it then he'll have to pay it).
Get counseling. When you get your kids, put them in counseling too. There are many sliding fee counseling places in Houston. Try Depelchin and United Way. And Google "domestic violence assistance in Houston" for agencies.
Good luck!See question
We are tight on money too, and our daughters best interest is not losing that money, but it won't help at all if we dump the money I earn into a lawyer. He can't hold down a job, and this is beginning to be a once a year thing that he is petitioni...
Well you basically summed it up pretty well. Ex cannot keep a job.
I would not set foot in a courtroom without an attorney but I also understand that you are not wealthy.
If he is purposely underemployed or avoiding work then the judge will consider that fact.
Look on this website for a young attorney that's less expensive than a person that has practiced for a long time. If you have time, go to the courthouse on a Monday morning and visit the family courts. Try to find an attorney that you like. Get their card and call them.See question
