it about my friend he is dutch he is got marriage from a german lady. they have a little girl 9 years old .he is living in holland but his x wife moved with her new boy friend and the little girl to USA - Texas - Dallas.
he could not see his daughter ......it is a lone history but they went to the court before in Dallas and he got a decision from the court to see his daughter weekly on the Skype . but once he left the USA his x wife changed the Skype account and he could not see his daughter anymore. he has no enough income to travel a lot to USA and last lawyer asked him to pay around 10000.00 $ for 4 meeting and appointments in the court . in Holland there is an organization called - rechts help - for free
He can contact the Texas Bar Association or review their website to see what type of free or reduced fee services are offered in his area. It may be difficult to find an attorney that is willing to offer $10k of free work to one client and international custody cases are more complicated than most custody cases. You may also want to try contacting the US Department of State's Office of Children's Issues to see if they have any suggestions.
Although I am an attorney practicing law in Nebraska, the answer I provide is for general purposes only and does not establish an attorney-client relationship. If you need legal advice, you should contact an attorney who will discuss with you the specific facts of your case.
He needs a Dallas County family law attorney to check the proceedings that have occurred to date and to determine a plan for future litigation in the same case or a modification suit. He has to keep checking into the Dallas County family law bar for help because of his location. He has to be able to get visitation at least during the summer where he is allowed to exercise that time in his country.
