To partially answer your question about the problem with your guardian, until you are age 18 it is likely the judge will keep your guardianship in place. However the guardianship judge has the power to change the guardian to another person, if the current guardian is not doing his or her job...Read more »

This was posted previously and answered. The process hasn't changed. If you are asking how much this matter will cost it would be difficult for any attorney to give you a figure as it all depends on how much time will be spent on the case and if there will need to be a trial.

First you need to read the papers you were served with. Read them twice. They should have given you blank forms for you to fill out, and file back with the court, stating your side of the story. A copy of your papers also has to be mailed to the other side with a form called "Proof of...Read more »
You are in Texas, so if the case is in Texas, you need to ask a Texas Attorney. If the case is in California the answer depends on what court you are in for child support. If child support is processed through Child Support Services in California, or the Child Support Services Court, you cannot...Read more »
The child support goes threw the state to her and she refuses to give any of it to me. I have text messages from her threatening to call the cops and report me as a run away if I ever tried to get the money. (My step dad and her both told me I wasn’t allowed to live there anymore but I have no... Read more »
Kids were victims of abuse & neglect. Mom arrested. Grandma had kids in March and The family nor court did not contact my brother and said they couldn’t find him. My brother has joint custody, been in contact and paid support for years from Florida. I found the article at end of April about... Read more »
Without more information it is hard to give an answer. However, if the children lived with the father and she did not pay support at that time she is in "arrears" and owes back money so there would be a garnishment, the same is true if there is an order of support that was never changed.
Now that our son is 18 and in college am I (custodial parent) still bound by the joint legal guidelines of our divorce decree? Do I still have to communicate with non-custodial and provide info on healthcare, school, etc. as I did in the past when he was in high school? Our only form of... Read more »
Your request focused on whether you still need to provide information to your ex about your son ( who you say is now in college). Under a joint legal custodial plan setting ( without reading your agreement) presumably requires communication about major decisions affecting your son's health...Read more »

If your daughter has been living with you and the court order gives the mother the exclusive right to designate the daughter’s residence, then you could ask the court for a modification of the old order.
I recently served my ex-husband with papers requesting to move from Florida to Texas and he responded. Does Order denying mean I can't move? The Docket does not show the order so I can download it and review it and I have not received anything in the mail.
He has domestic violence charges and left our house 6 months ago, no mortgage payments from him he said that since he is not living here he is not obligated to make payments. He only deposits money for our son. We agree to dissolve the marriage but we don’t agree on the child support amount... Read more »
You can't dissolve the marriage unless both parties agree on all details. He doesn't agree, so file for divorce and ask for occupancy of the premises, temporary spousal support to pay household expenses, and child support.
