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.

I'm starting divorce proceedings and I need to know one

I'm starting divorce proceedings and I need to know one important thing. I received a settlement because of an accident in 2013. With that money I bought and remodeled my house. Its value is roughly $500,000. I know settlement money from an accident is non divisible, but what about the house I bought with it? Do I have to split that with my husband?JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

I've received summons from a petitioner trying to assert his rights of Paternity of my 10 month old daughter, who is a child born into my marriage to my husband. My husband is her father, but the petitioner is trying to get the court to order a paternity test, so he can try to get visitation and custody. Can I file a motion to dismiss this petition? Or is there a way to shut the petitioner down, being that my husband and I do not want this interference?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes, we are in CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I have a few appointments set, but as of now, no I have notJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My husband and I did have a brief separation, about 3 months in 2015 when baby was conceived.

Judge has written an order that says I will receive a lump

Judge has written an order that says I will receive a lump sum alimony payment as a roll over. No attorney fees. He says I am not a dependent spouse. My lawyer says it's a mistake. I am afraid for her to file a motion to amend. Afraid I will lose the roll over. My ex-husband's lawyer has proposed that I accept a smaller alimony amount in a lump sum payment, which will, of course, be taxed. If I do, he will not file a motion to amend. I am leaning towards telling my lawyer that I don't want to risk losing the alimony and not to file. What should I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North CarolinaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: YesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
