The settlement says to take me off of the loan of the house in a "reasonable amount" of time. It has been almost 8 years. She refuses to take my name off the house. How do I start the process of taking my name off of the mortage?
Your remedy is to file a contempt motion against her for willfully violating the terms of the divorce decree. 8 years is way more than a "reasonable" time to get you off the loan. If she claims she doesn't qualify to refinance it, the Court will likely order it sold so you will be...Read more »

I'm unsure what facts were inaccurate. It sounds like CPS told you either 1) do this program, or 2) we'll file a petition that could lead to removal of the child. You choose not to do the program, and so they filed a petition along with an ex parte removal order.
Verbal agreements are worth the paper they are printed on. You can prove them by course of conduct, and if you are successful, you may have a way toward court enforcement of the remaining agreement. Going forward, it's always best to reduce agreements to writing. People's memories get...Read more »

My attorney last year said it was okay for us to move. Do I need to notify the Texas court that we moved to... Read more »
The answer to that question likely depends on the specific language of your Decree. Texas Family Code Sec. 153.076. DUTY TO PROVIDE INFORMATION provides that: (a) The court shall order that each conservator of a child has a duty to inform the other conservator of the child in a timely manner...Read more »

The legal father of the child is the man to whom the mother was married. If he never denies the child, and accepts the child as his, you cannot be held responsible for the child and you also cannot assert any right to the child. See Ex Parte Presse.
It depends on whether your divorce is filed in Circuit Court or Chancery Court. You can't just file a Permanent Parenting Plan unless there is a divorce action begun with a Complaint. I would consult a local divorce lawyer.
Apparently the reason that you keep posting this same question repeatedly is that you don't know what you want to do with your life. This is the wrong forum for you to get an answer. You need to decide what you want to do with your future, something other than "IDK". Call Dr....Read more »

My wife and her family decided to dye my child’s hair....My wife is not telling the truth and has my child lying also....This is in R.I.....BTW my wife has DCYF on her case because she drinks and urine(s) came back dirty..
Meet with your attorney and prepare to present this to the court. Bring all of the impeaching evidence you have to help your attorney expose these lies along with copies of the prior court orders, if any, that prohibit hair dying. DCYF will also likely be interviewing you if they are following up...Read more »
