After several serious incidents happened, my family and I went before the judge and asked for a protective order. We were granted a temporary order which later turned into a mutual injunction. The terms of the injunction clearly state no contact, ...
You might also call the District Attorney's office and see if they will help you. They file criminal charges against folks.
In the meantime, be extra cautious. The person will escalate if you don't communicate any more. This is a very dangerous time. Install security system if you don't have one. Don't take any changes.
Perhaps your employers will call the police and file a report. They might take more seriously.
If it's very bad and you have lots of evidence sometimes the news media can help.
You might also call the local sheriff, constable or police chief directly and find out why it's taking so long. You might also call your local Arlington representative on the city council and file a complaint that the police are not doing anything.See question
The mother has primary and we have a joint legal custody order with visitation every Saturday 730-6 but I moved 231 miles away with the mothers approval it was a good decision and we came to a new visitation agreement that I presented to my lawyer...
You need to talk your papers to an attorney to review. It sounds like she is violating the court's order. You might be able to find contempt on her and/or modify. I would urge you to have witnesses ready, willing and able to come to court to testify. Unfortunately, much digital info can be "manipulated" today. There was a class on "fake" info at the latest Advanced Family Law Seminar in August and it was shocking what can be "faked" these days! Now all the judges know too. It will make getting digitized info harder to admit into court.See question
One of my cousins are mad about a previous issue and stated to another family member via facebook that she will kill me next time she seen me. Slit my throat and stand on me while my blood spills out. Can i press charges?
To file criminal charges you need to go to the District Attorney or the police. A criminal case is not filed by you but by the District Attorney's office.
To file a civil restraining order or protective order (protective order is hard to get) you need to talk to the District Attorney's office or a private attorney and see if they will help you. The DA does it for free if they think you have a very strong case.
I recommend silence - her behavior may escalate and you will need proof to take to any attorney, policing agency or DA. Usually silence makes the person go nuttier. You should probably leave all social media and change your phone numbers. And a security system to your home if you don't already have one. Be safe. Be careful.
Good luck!See question
Yes, I'm being paranoid. But I have had some items stolen, and it got me thinking. No, I haven't committed crimes in my home, but who knows what my crazy ex might concoct as "evidence"? So the basics is: if she actually broke in, set up an audio/v...
Unfortunately you might not be paranoid. I recommend going to a store like Best Buy and buying a security system. I just bought one for our office and it's amazingly easy to set up and cost under $750. We have sensors in every room and can tell where and how long anyone is in the office. Locks only keep out honest folks. Hide the camera good (cover the green light with black tape). Or go to a "spy" store and get what you need. They have cameras in clocks, teddy bears, etc. You might be surprised to find out who is in your home!
There are also door bell security systems that run about the same price.See question
My daughter has primary custody of her daughter. Its been over a month and father has not returned her. Had to hire lawyer. Court won't do writ of attachment. Capias warrant issued tuesday its now Thurs and warrant not in system
Call your attorney.
I suspect that it just takes the clerks a while to get everything entered.
Once it's in the system nothing "magical" happens.
Houston police are too busy and understaffed to rush to arrest someone with a capias issued.See question
Preparing my own divorce docs. We have reached a settlement agreement and I don't know how to make it a part of the petition and a part of the decree
It appears you have an complex issue. You need to hire an attorney. If you don't do it right then you might never collect the contractual alimony!See question
We've gone to mediation and agreed on temporary things only. We had entry court today. I'm assuming for the judge to sign off on the mediation temporary orders which he did not do. The respondent did not show. Neither of us have attorneys. The jud...
Judges don't sign MSAs. Judges sign an Order that has been prepared AFTER the MSA has been done and signed by the parties.
Unfortunately it sounds like you need to hire an attorney to advise you. The judge is not there to give you legal advice and neither is the staff of the courtroom. The burden on YOU is to know what to do. It appears that you probably don't understand the legal process.
Childish and unreasonable people are what keep family law attorneys in business. If everyone was reasonable and logical then the courts could close early and go home!
Please hire an attorney and do it right!See question
Our family is having a problem with our sons girlfriend who is seventeen. Our son is nineteen. She will not leave him alone and her parents do not care. She's basically become a parents worst nightmare. As a parent, can I write her a letter a...
Your son is an adult under Texas law.
Unfortunately mental illness (and perhaps being a 17 year old female) is a problem.
He should probably contact the police and report her harrassment. If they find it meets their criteria, they will call her.
At 17 she is an adult for CRIMINAL PURPOSES but not civil purposes.
This is your son's problem. He needs to handle it. He needs to get off social media and change his phone numbers. He needs to avoid her. Yes it's a pain but obviously what he's done so far is not working.
He also needs to be careful - murder/suicides happen all the time. It's happened to 2 of my friends when one of the people don't want a relationship to end.See question
I've tried the pro we and feel like I'm getting nowhere. I'm a U.S.Army soldier only trying to get decent amount of quality bonding time with my 11month old son. Before mom and I broke up I saw my son almost daily, even keeping him with me for wee...
It sounds like you are in Houston. You might try Houston Volunteer Lawyers or South Texas College of Law now called Houston College of Law. Both have pro bono (free) attorneys if you qualify. I don't know their funding but sometimes they will get a special grant for military people. I know that HVL goes to the VA every Friday for free legal consultations.
Quit trying to do it yourself. Hire an attorney and do it right. Most offer payment plans.
I personally won't touch limited respresentation. I tried it once and it was a disaster! Most attorneys won't do it because it opens a door of possible liability that is just not worth the risk.
Many attorneys offer free to discounted consultations to assess your case. We are not allowed to make referrals on this site so look on avvo.com for an attorney.See question
