My sons Father works in the oil field industry and has spouts of unemployment. Every time we go to court he quits his job or gets "laid off" and claims no income. His child support order was originally based off of his pipefitter pay, but since th...
Ask to see copies of his tax returns for the past 3-5 years. It should reflect all his sources of income.
I would also encourage you to hire a private attorney and not rely on the TX A G's office. They have access to all Texas employee's income so they should know how much he's making - even when he claims to be unemployed.
Also, ask for copies of his bank statements for the past 3 years. That might show how he pays his bills and where his money comes from. I had a guy whose dad gave him $1,000 each month & the judge said that was income because Dad had been doing it every month for 5 years.See question

Who is eligible to file such a motion and on what grounds? Is any state organ entitled to start a procedure of annulment/revocation? I need the exact text of the Texas regulations with its numbers' reference. Thank you for your information.
You really have not given enough info to answer.
Many years ago (over 10 years) there were several adoptions reversed by the TX Supreme Court. So the Texas lawyers and judges made many changes in order to make sure that this never happened again. Today judges are very specific about terminating a person's rights and the person wanting to terminate has to jump thru a bunch of hoops to terminate.
That said, perhaps there are grounds to "review" or "revoke" a termination of parental rights.
Are you a parent who had their rights terminated?
I don't believe that Texas has any laws for the adoptee to terminate the adoption.
I suggest you re-post with more details -- you are being vague in your 2 questions and as you can see no one is answering you - that shows that your question is unclear.

My ex gets our child the 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekend of the month. The 1st lands on thursday not friday, so is it my weekend or is it his? I am really confused by all this.
Just like Attorney Marie stated, read your decree. It must be specific in the State of Texas - so it's not weekends - it specifies a specific day and time.
If you don't understand it, take it to a lawyer to read it to you - should take 1-2 hours to do so.

You can call the Bureau of Vital Statistics in Austin for all marriages in Texas. I believe you can also access them on-line.
Quite frankly, if your name is common then it might be another person and that info got "stuck" in your file by accident.
If you want to "fix" it, then you will need to contact the company that have the info on it.See question
I have not paid child support in 10 years
Here is the bad news.
Child support never goes away. With interest it just grows and grows. You can log onto your account on-line through the Child Support Disbursement Office and try to figure out what you owe.
If you ever get a tax refund the government will "grab" it. And, when you apply for social security again the government will "grab" a portion of your check each month.
I would humbly suggest that you start paying this debt since if you die then your estate owes it.
It's so sad when guys in their 60's retire and they get "hit" with a deduction from their SS check. Their kids are usually in their 30's or 40's but child support is still a debt owed to the mother.See question
How long do you have to wait to be married after divorce is granted in Texas? Daisytv@airmail.net
I believe you need to wait 30 days AFTER the judge signs the final decree of divorce to get re-married.
There is a form to ask the judge to waive the waiting period. I've seen it done when the new wife is pregnant. It's totally up to the judge.See question

You can certainly look on this site under personal injury for an attorney.
There have been many lawsuits in Texas on similar issues - grocery stores get sued over smashed fruit on the floor frequently. So there is plenty of case law on this topic.
Unfortunately, the Texas legislature has tried to put "evil trial lawyers" out of business so pi lawsuits are much harder than they used to be to win.
Most attorneys take 33-1/3% on pi lawsuits so the won't touch a case that they don't think they can win. So call around and see if you can find anyone that's interested.
The problem is -- your kid was NOT injured so what financial loss are you suing for? What was your and your son's pain and suffering?See question

You normally need to sign a Waiver of Service and perhaps even the Final Decree of Divorce to be actually divorced.
The Bureau of Vital Statistics in Austin keeps tracks of marriages and divorces. You can email or call them.
If you know the county he might have filed in, you can go to the courthouse and look. All divorces are open records for the public to access - unless expressly "sealed" by the judge - which is rare.
If you are not divorced then look on www.texaslawhelp.org on free Texas info on divorce.See question

But you should be able to find an attorney for under $5,000 down to take this case. It sounds like you talked to a board certified attorney - you probably don't need one.
Good luck!See question
