Husband is a business owner. Made a profit of over 11 million and still growing. I’ve been a stay at home mom since 2015. Can I fight for alimony and custody of children? He would end up giving the kids to his mother to raise. He lives eats and breaths his job. Kids barely see him or me.
It's best if you consult privately with a divorce lawyer on this. Generally you have to have been married for 10 years to receive spousal maintenance in Texas. Child custody is based on the best interests of the children.
That’s awesome for you all to come together for the benefit of your child! You should be able to obtain an attorney who can explain to you the options so that you can proceed accordingly. It will be less costly since you all agree. 888–343-4529. Good luck.
He owns the house and said that he is going to keep the 9 month old baby. Without a custody hearing can he legally prevent her from seeing the baby, and can she take the baby with her when she moves into my place?

House purchased during marriage is community property. You can assert that is is by tracing your separate property contribution. Courts can split property by what is fair and just. It does not have to be 50/50. 888-343-4529.
My daughters mother and step-father have been married for years and waited until the girls turned 18 so I wouldnt know about the adoption process. I only found out about a year ago. I no longer have a withholding order for child support but I DO have a withholding order for arrears.
It depends on whether you have any equity in the property. If not, then if there is a mortgage the person keeping the house will have to be responsible for continuing the payments. Hope this helps. 888-343-4529.
