I am a father of a 17-yr-old daughter in Texas. I am deploying

I am a father of a 17-yr-old daughter in Texas. I am deploying to the middle east for 6 months in June. My daughter is frequently invading our privacy, picking bedroom door locks and taking personal items. She refuses to obey my house rules. She has been caught with drugs in my house and my mother's. I've reported her to the police but they chose not to do anything. She has run away and refuses to tell us where she stayed. She has told me she will no longer respect me or my rules. I cannot trust her at home with my wife and 3-yr-old while I'm deployed. Can I have her evicted?

I beleive my ex is delibertly not working to avoid having his

I beleive my ex is delibertly not working to avoid having his child support increased. I applied for a modification back in June because he was making more money (alot more). I went through the Attorney General. They normally ask that we meet to see if we can come to an agreement on the increase, but he refused, he wanted to go to court. Our court date was set for Oct 17. He quit his employment a month prior to us going to court, he got a new job a week later. He called in a week prior to us going to court stating he would like to meet to see if we can come to an agreement. We met and we could not come to an agreement because he was saying he makes less than what he was making. My child support was gonna go from $475 to 1100 a month. Well, because of him quitting the job they had his info on and him providing only one chech stub, because he had just started this new job. They advised we continue on with our court hearing. So we get to court and he says he is not longer employed because he was laid-off the following day of our meeting. Now I live in Crystal City, texas where the oil and gas boom has hit. The company where he claims they laid him off was hiring 37 truck drivers. I know because I had called the same day of our meeting to verify their pay. That is just one company, there is numerous jobs in his field and they are all making a substantial amount of money. Up to $100 a year. Now my ex has two degrees, both Bachelors, one in Science and one in PE. He was a juvenile probation officer for 16 years then we had our own business for 8 years until he lost it during our divorce. My question is can they base his child support on his earining potential based on the Texas Family code law of ""intentional underemployment or unemployed"?

I was working as a Teaching Assistant at a Keller, TX Daycare.

I was working as a Teaching Assistant at a Keller, TX Daycare. My youngest daughter is very hyperactive and was attending school at the same daycare. Numerous times, my husband and I were called to the office to address Nicole's hyperactivity and lack of discipline. They suggested we took her to the doctor. We did and the Doctor found nothing physically wrong with Nicole. Nevertheless, discipline in the form of spanking was suggested as a last resort. Last week, I yelled at Nicole before going to school and grabbed her by her arms to get her to stay in the car. When she went to school, she was very sad and when her teacher asked her what happened Nicole replied: "my mom hit me". Immediately, with no physical proof on Nicole's body and knowing me after almost a year at the school, they called CPS. CPS so far found nothing wrong, but I have been ill from all the stress this has caused. Would like to sue the daycare. Do I have a case? Case with CPS will most likely be dismissed.

My sister in law currently has a P.O.A. for my father-in-law

My sister in law currently has a P.O.A. for my father-in-law who is 93. Recently, she has been making decisions that are not in the best interest of her father (we have facts and evidence to validate why we believe this). We would like to pursue a dual P.O.A. so an older sister is also on the P.O.A..Questions:How do we go about adding the 2nd sister?Is 1st sister is not in agreement of adding 2nd sister to the P.O.A., what recourse is there?What would it take to prove she is mentally unfit to make reasonable and rational decisions?Background:Father just got hospitalized and will be placed into a skilled nursing facility for 2-3 weeks. After that, he may or may not be allowed to go home. 4 family members feel that if he goes home, caregivers can be hired and family members can take turns watching him in his home. Sister who has P.O.A. will not allow family members inthe home to care for him. In addition, she does not want private caregivers in the home because she is a private person. Private or not, we are saying that decisions should be made in the best interest of their dad, not because of our own personal issues. Part of the problem is that she has OCD and does not want others in the home.

Last year (2015), an Emancipation Inquiry form was sent to

Last year (2015), an Emancipation Inquiry form was sent to me from the Domestic Relations Department. On it, I was asked to give my son's graduation date. I wrote that his anticipated graduation date was June of 2016. As it turned out, he did not have enough credits to graduate. He will continue to be in high school for an additional year. However, his child support has stopped. I petitioned the court for reinstatement and was given a hearing. At the hearing, I was told my ex was not responsible for paying since I gave the graduation date of June 2016. I was told that I should have used the wording "anticipated" or "tentative." I told the Judge I thought I had used the word anticipated. She showed me the form and it did not say anticipated, In fact, it looked as if someone had used correction fluid and rewrote the date over what I wrote. I cannot afford a lawyer and don't know what to do. Any advice?

I have a daughter that is going to be seven in November.

I have a daughter that is going to be seven in November. When she was born my boyfriend registered her with his last name. Her biological dad has been in and out of prison and he just recently contacted me saying that if I didn't let him see her he was going to go to court and file for a paternity test. He said he would file that so the would be able to get visitation rights. Is it possible if he does that he will get visitation rights??
