I have the child support set up through the Texas Attorney Generals office, do I go to them for the court ordered discovery of all his finances, and is this something he still would be furnishing himself or will all his bank accounts be investigated. We were common law married in the state of texas, he has introduced me as his wife on different occassions.
If you were common law married then you should file for a divorce through the family courts and claim half of the marital property under the community property laws. Your question was whether you could sue for mental anguish so I answered on that basis but if you can establish a common law marriage then you may be able to get additional money from that source. I am not permitted to represent clients from this website or prepare documents however I have included below the official Texas website for self help which includes forms and information on representing yourself in court. The attorney general's office will not be of any assistance in filing for a divorce.
