My exfirlfriend and I were together very briefly when we found out she was pregnant. We were not togerher for the entire pregnancy as she broke up with me when she found out the married man she was interested in was finally divorcing his wife. Cut...
It is very very important that you interview and retain an attorney to help you with this - especially at the young point of your daughters life. You have 16 Plus years to deal with and need to set the standards of this relationship now (and not later). Interview a lawyer and explore your options for proceeding. That lawyer will discuss the need for genetic testing, visitation, child support, conservatorship and other essential topics that you need to know about now.
My children have lived with me all their lives. I allow them to visit dad in CA during the summers. Dad lives with his parents. This year our kids, 9 yr old twins, do not want to visit for the 2.5 month vacation. They only want 3 weeks. I informed...
Wow. A lot of questions here. Does Texas or California have jurisdiction over your case? Is there an order of any type in your case? What would visitation look like if the court ordered it? What about "sole custody"?
You desperately need to iinterview a good family lawyer in your area.
Meanwhile, you might read several of the guides on this site.
I just got married. Been with my husband 5 out of 7 years of my daughters life. We have a baby now and would love to have my daughter adopted to feel like a more proper family. My ex is a registered sex offender and we have a documented legal hist...
Would your ex agree to the adoption?
If so, he can be terminated as the Father and your new husband can adopt. If not, you will have a contested termination hearing (not easy).
Talk to a local lawyer.

Take a look. Not sure how this affects an undeclared Father but I would have your local Family Lawyer review the statute to help you out with this.

My wife wants a divorce as soon as possible. We have been married for 7 years and have a 6 year old son. We are both active duty military and she wants custodial custody and to move overseas with our son. I do not agree with her idea to take our s...
Generally, yes. The reason being that the first to file gets to put their side of the case on first (in the unlikely event it goes to trial).
I would urge you to contact a good lawyer asap to deal with her efforts to relocate your son from your area.

It sounds like your marraige lasted under 4 years. Our long term alimony statutes don't generally apply until you have been married for 10 years (with exceptions).
He might apply for temporary alimony.
I would urge you to counsel with an attorney asap to get your divorce completed.

Wow. Probably need more facts than that. Judge will try to determine the best interest of the child. That involves looking at both parents situations.
Do yourself a big favor - consult with an attorney and lay out all of the facts.
The original court order from like 2011 has the mother of my step children (2 boys 7 &9) as custody holder but she's in and out of prison for drugs even child endangerment ect and has since before their birth she doesn't get out till 2018 her last...
Very difficult to request emergency or "fast" relief from a Judge without an attorney. It would be helpful if CPS would step in on your behalf.
wish I had an easy answer. I would suggest you save some money and hire a competent attorney to help you.
"Property Not Divided" (assets of the parties not awarded or divided by this final Decree of Divorce are subject to future division as provided in the Texas Family Code.) Does the removal of this clause in the final decree prevent assets that ...
Not necessarily. Property not divided in a divorce decree is, well, undivided. You need to check with a local attorney to see if the decree inadvertantly divides the property through a standard "catchall" clause in the decree.
Make sense? Good luck!
