Found default divorce signed 3/25 in TX records search on 28 May. Clerk mailed Cert Decree date-stamp 30th. Rcv'd 6/4. Which date would I use to request new hearing within 30 days of having "knowledge?" OR is the way I read TRCP 306(7) and 329(a), say I have 2 years due to Citation by Publication, and the 30-day clock actually starts on day Motion for New Trial is filed?
I know I need an atty, but there is no $'s; can't find pro bono or atty service I qualify for. As an "old" legal secretary (when still called a secretary), I know just enough to get myself in trouble, but I have no option unless I accept no provision for spousal support; my husband of 38 yrs to lie, bold-faced to the Judge, perjure every doc; and forget he signed & notarized an Agreed MSA in 2006.
