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 looking for any possible help in my situation. I

I'm looking for any possible help in my situation. I apparently signed a non-modifiable divorce agreement. I however, did not realize that. My lawyer really did not have my best interest at hand. I lost my job and now get way less than I used to. I just received papers that my paycheck is going to be garnished the full amount. That leaves me with around $1400 a month! That's not even enough to pay my rent.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Being broke I've just reached out to a few via email. All say the same thing, it's non-modifiable your out of luck.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it.

My 15 year old stepdaughter wants me to adopt her. The biological father has a poor relationship with her, but is unlikely to consent. My research leads me to believe that the odds of success in adopting her are pretty slim without "bio-dad's" consent.1. Is that correct?2. Is there anything we can do to improve those odds?

I've had an allegation made against me in a California

I've had an allegation made against me in a California family court proceeding and an emergency TRO was granted for the opposing party. My visitation rights have been temporally suspended pending an RFO hearing. The hearing is scheduled for July 17th and I need to prepare for my defense. I plan to propound interrogatories and admission discovery on both the parties as well as the WITNESSES. However, the normal discovery process allows 30 days for the individuals to respond to the discovery. I need to know how to propound it and get the answers returned to me before the July 17th hearing date. The opposing party has an attorney and I'm Pro Per. The matter has been on calendar for almost two years and I have been very successful winning practically all hearings for custody, motions and other type court proceedings until these allegations were made. I say this to say that if given the proper direction to go in this dilemma I feel that I can complete the process myself and move forward.We're facing a restrictive time factor here. Please respond with your best answer.Thank you
