Answered on Aug 3, 2016

This will depend on a lot of things but bottom line is a child cannot just "choose" to go back with his parents; however, absent any official paperwork including something from CPS, i.e. a safety plan, etc. his parents have the right to have their child.

You may be thinking of alienation of affection. First, that's handled through divorce. Also, if she has no money you will have to pay an attorney to handle the case if that type of action is still permitted.

you need to contact legal services/legal aid.You need to get copies of the court dockets and the orders, so whoever you talk to can see what is going on and advise you. You should have received notice/service. But that's not malpractice.You can file to reopen the custody matter but you need an attorney. Right now you have to do the legwork of getting the docket sheet, copies of the court orders.

Q: Do my stepbrother have right to the house? our parents were married his mother passed now my father passed.

1 Answer | Asked in Estate Planning, Family Law, Probate and Real Estate Law for Texas on
Answered on Jun 20, 2016

I'm sorry for the loss of your father. Did your stepmother have a will? If not, it may be possible that all of her share goes to her child, i.e. 100% of her 1/2 in the house (providing house was bought during the marriage). It also depends on how long ago and other factors,. It's best to consult with a probate attorney personally instead of seeking a definitive answer on this (or any other) forum. Best wishes.

Q: Please explain what signing a waiver( chapter 308 section A) pertaining my Dads will means and if it takes anything away

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law, Estate Planning, Probate and Real Estate Law for Texas on
Answered on Jun 7, 2016

I'm sorry for the loss of your dad. You've asked a lot of questions here and my advice is to contact a probate lawyer in your area for a free consultation. Generally, signing a waiver is either acknowledging you received notice of the probate and a copy of the will, although some waivers say that you have received all the things from the estate you were supposed to. It's best to go over this in person as you'll receive more accurate information. All my best - Tammy L. Wincott

Q: I am a GC holder, planning to marry my girl in india and she has a valid B2 visa, After marriage can she travel to US?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Immigration Law for Texas on
Answered on May 5, 2016

A travel visa is for purposes of visiting and returning to India. Your wife must be intending to return to India and have proof of such, etc. Ultimately, it will be up to officials when she enters the U.S. on whether or not they admit her.

I suggest you consult with an immigration lawyer in order for you to discuss in private your personal situation.

Q: Son is US citizen in US Navy, at Pearl harbor. Married Philipina lady, now permanent residence.

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Immigration Law for Texas on
Answered on Feb 12, 2016

Your question is very unclear, you need to consult with an immigration attorney in private regarding this matter. If that child you are talking about is your daughter-in-laws child, he doesn't have to adopt her she can get a green card through her mother. Many immigration attorneys including me offer free consultations, make use of the consultations. All the best.

Q: To inherit from my aunt, I must prove paternity of my father. I do not have a birth certificate. Is a DNA test accepted?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law for Texas on
Answered on Nov 8, 2015

If your aunt's estate is being probated in PR, you would have to be proven to be her heir in the PR probate court. I expect that DNA testing would do it, but you should that any DNA test would probably have to be approved by the court. Speak with an attorney there.
