The child turned 18 in April 2019, and will not be able to graduate as expected from high school in May due to failing grades. The child is not disabled. The divorce decree states age 18 or graduation from high school, whichever is later.
He has no job, and I do not know if he intends to... View More
It depends on whether he stays in school for summer school trying to graduate, or comes back in the fall to asses to graduate. I would meet with the school counselor who deals with issues like this trying to get kids to graduate and find out if there is a plan and if so what. Ask how they handle...View More
The question is, do you have your vehicle or is it still at the shop? If they still have it I would get an attorney to write a demand letter for the car and regarding the bill. If not, you can simply refuse to pay and if they report it to the credit bureaus then sue them, or if they sue you, file...View More
Decree states that both conservators have; the right, subject to the agreement of the other parent conservator, to consent to psychiatric and psychological treatment of the children. Ex husband took child to therapist w/o wife's knowledge or consent. Therapist office did not know my wife was... View More
To properly answer this question an attorney would need to read your decree to see exactly what rights each party has regarding getting mental health treatment for the child. If it solely grants that to you, you may have to file a Motion for Contempt or to Enforce with the Court to try and get the...View More
Sadly $2000 is a bargain for a divorce. If your Ex has not complied with the Decree you will need to file a Motion to Enforce. You will likely have to pay the attorney more money to pay for that, but they can ask in the Motion for the Ex to have to reimburse you for your legal fees.
I have a class A misdemeanor assault causing bodily injury from 2015. The victim is now in prison for assault with a deadly weapon. Which no one believed happened to me at the time due to lack of evidence that I was attacked. I did defend myself that’s why I pled guilty to assault. The victim was... View More
I apparently don't read your question as the other two attorney's do. It sounds like you were charged with felony assault, pled guilty and were "convicted" of a misdemeanor assault. If that is correct, you cannot do anything to remove the conviction, other than possibly...View More
Children’s father is $13 grand behind on child support..just will not work.He hasn’t held the medical insurance in more than a year. Have taken him to court because he refused to go by 50/50 custody and moved outta state. Took him back at my expense $1000..&refused to agree to standard... View More
Sounds like you need a good attorney to take him back to court and have him help in contempt and maybe get him to agree to modify some of the terms to allow you to relocate in exchange for not asking the court to throw him in jail, or suspend his driver's license if meet the requirements for that.
Mom (non custodial parent) was called by the school for a meeting with the counselor about an issue that arose at school (is school in contempt for this?). Mom tells school to not call me, custodial parent, for this meeting. School has meeting with non custodial parent only (is this contempt?).... View More
It isn't contempt, but if I wear you I would be very unhappy. Have you scheduled an appointment with the school principal yet to meet with them and go over the custody papers where I assume it says you have custody and the right to make educational decisions for the child? If not, that would...View More
It depends on whether you are guilty or innocent. Whether you want to take a plea or go to trial. And whether you have a good attorney. It also depends on what kind of criminal history you have, if any. If you can't afford an attorney then you can request a court appointed. But, if I were...View More
if the prosecuters decides to not dismiss the case, and for example, sentences the defendant to 1 yr in jail, can the victim appeal so that the case is dismissed? What is the process like? This is Texas. (Does if matter what county? )
If the person has already been convicted, and sentenced to jail, it wouldn't be you who would appeal, but the person in jail. About the only basis would likely be you provide his attorney a sworn statement saying it did not happen, thus giving him the argument of actual innocence.
My daughter was involved in a traffic incident in Montgomery County. She was not issued a citation at the time of the incident. Later that evening she began receiving calls from the constable asking to meet with her in person so he could issue the citation in person. She said she'd speak... View More
If I were the attorney I would have called the Constable and inquired directly what the problem was and told him if a ticket was being issued he can fax it to me, and we will get a not guilty plea filed for her.
Yes you can, and what we usually do under facts like this is try to get the Judge to allow you to pay the Fail to Appear and dismiss the no insurance. The FTA is not a moving violation and it keeps you from getting a suspension for no insurance and surcharges.
I went back the next day to video my exact route. To show that there are no visually posted signs with in the area the officer claimed I was speeding. Which is roughly about a 1 mile distance between the streets.
Quick question i was stop by police this morning. He got to the window and ask me for my driver's license and registration, didn't gave me the motive why he stop me , i ask him politely what was the motive he stop me and he refused to tell me until i gave him what he ask i kept saying... View More
You were not arrested and did not give false information so this shouldn't apply. But, officer's often threaten to arrest for failure to identify. Whether a crime or not, right or wrong, you should give your id if you want to make 100% sure the cop doesn't decide to arrest, your...View More
2 dui's, Nov06 & Mar 07. No priors & nothing violations since. Satop and fines I have done. I don't have a car or means to get a car right now. I moved from Missouri where the case was originally and now in Texas. Texas says I have to do whatever Missouri says I have to do. But... View More
If your MO case is still open and no conviction you might be able to file for an Occupation license here in Texas. You will need an attorney IMO, to review all the facts of your situation and insure they believe they can get you one.
If property is gifted, it becomes separate property. So, property gifted to you is your separate property, but by putting it in both your names you could be considered to have gifted half interest to the other person.

If she has been charged with assaulting you, yes you can file suit against her in civil court. Because it was an intentional act, her insurance would likely deny coverage, so she would need to have non-exempt assets to go after to collect a judgment. Was the rental you were evicted from her home,...View More
