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 live Queens, NY. My fiancé lives in Ohio. We have not done

I live Queens, NY. My fiancé lives in Ohio. We have not done a prenuptial agreement.(1)Does a prenuptial have to be signed before an engagement for it to be more valid?(2) Or can we do a prenuptial after the engagement ( a few months before the marriage- we are getting married this August) and it be just as effective?(3) I own my home in Queens- if we do decide to live together first for a few years, at what point can my finance claim rights to my home just by living in my home ?(4) In the prenuptial , I want to say my coop is my separate property. If my soon to be wife contributes to the home mortgage and/ or real estate taxes and/or maintainance , can she still claim rights to my coop? Or do I need to make sure my wife does NOT contribute to these coop expenses? However, the coop expenses are the bulk of our expenses so how can my wife contribute without her being able to lay claim on the coop if ever a divorce.(5) I make a lot more money than my fiancé, my fianance's lawyer wants $500,000 for her if we get divorced after 5 years or more. What is the rationale for her getting money in case of a divorce? Why should I give her money if the divorce is because of her?(6) What is the norm contribution toward marital expenses if I make a lot more than my fiancé?(7) If ever a divorce, what law applies NY or Ohio? Where do we have to file? My fiancé will keep her house in Ohio and will travel back and forth for her jobThank you

I am going through divorce - I filed but the county has not

hello - I am going through divorce - I filed but the county has not yet provided a divorce case number. My question is this - her lawyer put together a custody agreement, which I agree to - joint custody, but primary physical custody to my soon to be x wife...my question is this. I have UGMA account that I opened - maybe to deposit funds to shield my creditors - I am the custodian of this account. Does the fact that primary physical custody going to wife risks that I would lose custodianship of this account, if the case were to go to court? Should I withdraw the funds and put in my own account, to avoid the risk of all the funds being controlled by my wife?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: an uncontested divorce legal service, yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: so I just had this one question.
