Thanks for your question. You need to go to the county law library and copy the forms you need. The Texas Family Practive Manual has all the forms, checklists , and law you need to do this yourself. It is the "bible" of forms that Texas lawyers use here.

Just take some quarters to copy the portions you need here. All counties in Texas have a county law library in the courthouse area. Here is a picture of what you are looking for. If there are existing orders then it would be a motion to modify custody you are looking for.The stuff on the internet for Texas is junk so you have to get them here..

What happens when I accept this? Will there be more charges than $28.00?

I would like to subpoena a DFPS caseworker that is leaving the department on August 3, 2009. She has been his caseworker for the past year and knows of several things that have been done that have been a bit underhanded. Is the subpoena also in the Family Practice Manual?

Yes it is. You will find this worth reading as well as copying what you need. You will need to modify the motion a bit to include TDPRS and your ex here if she still has parental rights she is a party and must be noticed as well. But there are great checklists in her to guide you through the process of modification.

Texas lawyers use it who don't paratice Family Law a lot because it is well writen and reliable. The judges recognize the forms and this will give you credibility here. There are other places here that would have it--all the college law libraries in Dallas as well.
