If THC is found in your system or the newborn baby system. What will happen or more so what is the procedure
If the child or the mother tests dirty for any reason then the kid will be going into CPS custody and won't be going home.
You will then need to hire an attorney that does family law and CPS cases - not many in Harris County. And, you need to plan on an extensive parenting plan to complete. And, plan on it taking 6-9 months to finish. And, in the meantime, very limited access to the kid.
You might want to hire an attorney BEFORE the baby is born. You need a family law attorney with CPS experience. I have a list of CPS Harris County attorneys that I know on my blog.See question
My ex and I have split custody of our 3 year old daughter. He was given primary conservator under the order that he must remain in his girlfriends residence. Per our orders, if he removes the child from his girlfriends address, I am supposed to im...
I would agree to take the kid immediately to help him out. And I'd be in a family law attorney's tomorrow. You must get in front of a judge to have a modification done. This might make your appeal disappear. Good luck!See question
We live in Houston and my son's friend's mom had to move to St. Louis for work. His step-Dad lives in Dallas. We have offered to let him live w us so he can complete his sr year here. I'm assuming his parents will have to give me limited guardians...
You definitely do not want guardianship - that is a probate matter and is very complicated.
If you need a legal case, then you want conservatorship and that's filed in the family court system.
What might complicate matters is that his mom and his dad need to agree. Since it appears that the parents are divorced, there must be a court of continuing jurisdiction. That court is the one that controls unless you have grounds to move it.
Step-parents are usually not involved in legal proceedings regarding the kid.
of course, the moment he turns 18, is an adult in Texas and he can do whatever he wants. The current court orders go away regarding where he lives.
so without more info., no attorney can assist you.
If the school and doctors agree, a written and notarized statement by parents will work. A family law attorney can draft that for you for a couple of hundred bucks.See question
She got mad because he took me too the beach. Threatened him if he didn't pick up his son soon she would keep him and not let him see their son. Can she do that? And she bit him so hard after she was done punching him and slapping him and it bust...
You did not do anything when it happened? You can call and make olive report but I don;t know what they will do.
For criminal it's up to the D A's office on whether they will prosecute.
You can try to sue her civilly so look under civil lawyers on this site.
In the meantime the dad might want to consult with a family lawyer but again waiting over a year hurts his case.See question
I've been married for 12 years. We have an 11 year old son. My husband cheated 3 years ago and then left our family 3 months ago.
You might qualify for temp. spousal support while the divorce is pending if he controls the bulk of the community money.
You might also qualify for some long term spousal support. It's capped and it won't go on forever.
The adultery (which is difficult to prove) is an element necessary to ask for a disproportionate share of the community estate. If you get each money from the community property then many judges won't give spousal support after the divorce is finished.
You truly need to sit down with an attorney in your county to discuss. Even though it's Texas law, each judge is different and they have different views on spousal support.
In the meantime, you need to do what you can to support yourself and your child. Take any job you can find. You need to show that you are trying to support yourself but that you also need his help to survive. Any job is better than no job.
Good luck!See question
My bf on original paper work has his babies mother listed as common law wife. When he tried to list me as such for visits they told him he needed an affidavit. Well we want to get married now and I'm wondering if we can get married or is he going ...
If man and woman agree in Texas to be married then it's a common law marriage. It's as valid as any other marriage. I believe he needs to file for divorce before he marries you. You can only have one spouse at a time in Texas. I also suspect that the prison will require a divorce since their paperwork says he has a wife. They are real sticklers for details.See question
I have read that in Texas where my father lives, a adult child can get a court order for a DNA test which he can't refuse. I found him after 28 yrs when my family moved here from Germany where my father was stationed in the US Army in 1955. His na...
If you are doing it for curiosity sake then you can use any of his male relatives and it should work. If his other child is a male, perhaps he will agree to do a DNA test. The DNA tests are quite detailed now.
What law are you quoting that "requires" him to do a DNA test? I am not aware of one. There might a one but I've never heard of it.
You are not the first adult child to post on this website. But you are the first to claim that there is a law to compel him to take a DNA test.
In family court with children, if a man refuses to do a DNA test once ordered by a judge then it's presumed that he is the father. And the judge will file a ruling on that fact.

Unfortunately everything needed to get the divorce finalized is going to cost money.
He can do a DNA test to prove he is her dad.
But the husband (if not able to locate or cooperate) needs to have an attorney appointed to represent his interests. You pay for this attorney.
Rather than waste the money you have already spent, I would suggest that you and your fiance borrow the money to get this case finalized.See question

A person can ask for anything. Getting it granted by a judge is totally different. It appears that you have a contested divorce since you don't want to agree to what she is wanting. I would highly suggest that you hire a lawyer to protect your interests.
Unfortunately the situation you describe occurs all the time. If you don't want to be restricted then you need to make sure that her request is NOT approved by the judge. Otherwise, you are ordered not to have the kid around this person and you can held in contempt of court for not following the judge's order. Contempt can include monetary damages and/or jail - pretty serious consequences.See question

If dad has possession of the children then his child support should end. He needs an attorney to make sure this happens. If TX A Gis involved they won't know she's deported.See question
