Today, our 47 yr. old son met with his x-wife at the Attorney General
's office there in Austin regarding
his payments (supposed to be medical only as stated in his divorce decree)... but now, she's trying for child support, which goes against what his divorce decree says . . . and could not believe the amount of money she was wanting ....
There will now be a court case in Sept or Oct regarding this . . . he lives in Panola County, Carthage, TX (E. Texas) and she and children (two sons, one 17 and the other is 11) live in Travis County with step-father . . . so this is going to be hard.
His income is only around $25,000 per year max, and he has 2 jobs now. He is bipolar, and on the sex offender
list now for 5 years. He has a job here in Carthage with Mission Carthage as Handyman and has worked for them ever since he completed all his hours of community service in 2009 . . . Jeff's crime was that he exposed himself in May 2007, and arrested in Williamson County. This was his first offense, and he was given 10 years probation
, 20 yrs on sex offender list, 400 hours of community service, and $10,000 fine ... he's paying out. He's done SUPER with the Condition X probation, and has 2 probation officers..... He had no way of remaining in Travis or Williamson County (no support because no family there) . . . so as soon as he got out of jail in Jan 2009, we moved him to Carthage.
There have been several times that CPS was called into the home the boys are living in with the mother due to problems with the step-father . . . we were told that at that time, it would have been a good thing to try and take her back to court at that time, but Jeff didn't want to rock the boat for the boys anymore than it was.... and he was not having problems with the X over money at those times and things appeared to have been worked out.
Need an attorney to help him with this ................. someone who is very good, fair, and won't eat our lunch!
Jeff failed to hire an attorney at the time of his divorce because he was going through this criminal case and trusted his wife to handle the divorce . . . well, you can imagine what happened . . .
Can you help us find a good attorney???? in Travis County???? Should he contact Legal Aide? What should he do . . . he does not have internet because of his charges . . . but we (his parents) do. We also may need the same attorney to take a look at grandparents rights for us also. I had once contacted Wade Wilson, but he is no longer taking Travis County cases.
