If you didn't get served, how do you know that there is an appeal in Virginia?
Either way, if no party resides in Virginia, you would need to file a motion to transfer the case to Texas. However, until the case is transferred, the Virginia court can still make a ruling in the case....Read more »
I am licensed only in Missouri and Illinois. Based upon the law in those States, I would say "No." I am not licensed in Texas but, UNLESS your wife is a co-signer, co-apllicant, or guarantor for any of your mother-in-laws debt, I cannot see how your wife would be responsible for her...Read more »
Police won’t do anything, do I need to take her to court, will she have to pay for legal fees if I do? We have 2 kids together so we need to talk ANOUT THE KIDS but she is constantly tearing me down. SHe hates my girlfriend and talks bad about us to the kids.
Respond that you are only willing to talk to her about the kids. Do not respond to anything else she sends. If she continues to send those messages after you have been 100% clear AND you have stopped responding, then she is committing the crime of Harassment. The cops probably won't do...Read more »

You can file a Motion for Continuance to postpone the court date and the court will issue you another court date. Your sister can agree with the continuance without court interference. If she doesn't agree to the continuance, you would need to get a court date and ask the Judge to grant you a...Read more »
What if I need to move before 60 days? Is that not allowed? I just found out I have to move and it needs to be done before that amount of time. I did not see any statement on papers Indicating when I have to let the other parent know.
If there is not a geographical restriction in your court order, preventing you from changing the primary residence of the child without further orders from the court or without the other parent's consent, then typically court orders require the primary parent to notify the other parent of a...Read more »
I have primary custody and my papers say I am allowed to determine primary residence without reguard to geographical location. Im not sure how I am supposed to go about it or if he is able to stop me in any way.
If your court orders state that you have the "exclusive right to designate the primary residence without regard to geographical location", you are allowed to move your child's primary residence (within or outside of the State) without further permission from the court.

More information is needed, perhaps, but this is likely more of a divorce question than immigration. You are a lawful permanent resident, not a conditional resident, correct? You should file for citizenship by naturalization, since you seem to have been a lawful permanent resident/conditional...Read more »
I now live in Texas, and I’m Active duty Coast Guard. My daughter is 6 years old. I have her for school year and the father gets her for holiday days summer. He does not pay child support at this time. And he refuses to help pay for day care. Occasionally he sends money for clothing.
Keys to what? A house, a car, a safe, a boat, a crypto-currency account? Is the item you want keys to yours, or was it your father's? If there's no will, you need to look at the rules of intestate succession to determine who has rights to what property. In order to take any action on...Read more »
It states: IT IS ORDERED that the primary residence of the child shall be within 100 miles of the residence of Respondent, and the parties shall not remove the child from within 100miles of the residence of Respondent for the purpose of changing the primary residence of the child until this...

This language means that if Mom is the who the child primarily lives with, then she cannot move with the child more than 100 miles of where Dad currently lives (this presumes that Mom and Dad currently live less than 100 miles from each other). If Mom chooses to move the child's residence,...Read more »
My ex has sued Me for custody of our daughter but has filed in the incorrect county. Although our divorce was finalized in Montgomery county Texas and order was issued granting the transfer to Harris County giving them jurisdiction over the case in 2016. I know that the motion to transfer must be... Read more »
Your question is somewhat unclear. However, if the case was validly transferred from Montgomery County to Harris County, then the proper venue to file for any future court proceedings regarding the child is in Harris County.
When my daughter was 13 the ex (father) left the country and never paid child support. This has been about 10 years ago. Can he be charged for abandoning or any other charges even tho she was left in my care? He has returned to the States last year.
If there is not a court order requiring him to pay child support, then there is nothing for him to be "charged" with. It's unfortunate that he just abandoned his child, but his hasn't committed any crime.
If there IS a court order requiring him to pay child support,...Read more »
Child was placed in CPS care at birth. Biological father’s rights were taken by court. Biological mother voluntarily signed them away. I adopted the child, who is biologically my nephew. Mom is now stable and able to care for child. This is in Texas.
This is a multi-layered question that poses more questions; which could result in different legal answers depending on how the questions are answered. I would strongly suggest you seek legal counsel to get a more accurate answer to your question.
My daughters father and I made written agreement so he got her on Christmas this year which he was not suppose to and he is now trying to back track and say per the court ordered agreement he gets her on the 28th through Sunday, however that was not part of the new written agreement we had come up...

I'm sorry that you are having to deal with this situation. The parties can agree to whatever possession schedule that they would like. Absent an agreement, the court order is the default. However, a written agreement does not void the court order.
He hasn’t been involved in their lives the entire time and has never been concerned or interested in any decision making. I had no contact with him for 6 years. Just 2 months ago he just now started getting them. He will not allow me to get their passport. They can’t play sports because he will... Read more »
Based on your reasons provided, it doesn't appear you have the legal grounds to ask for sole managing conservatorship (sole custody) of your children. However, you can file to modify your existing court order and see if the Judge will insert language that requires Father to take the children...Read more »
NCP wants to stick by the order as it was just modified Jan. 2021 and the CP has a history of denial. Can the CP just change this agreement? If NCP sticks by the order can this be documented as denial?
If the court order states that CP and NCP are supposed to exchange the child at a certain location at a certain time, then the only way that can be changed (without another court order) is by agreement of the parties. It takes two people to agree. So, if NCP doesn't want to change the...Read more »
