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 child and I have been cited for truancy in Shelby County, Alabama. I did not know she wasn't in school for at least 3 of the 16 days she has missed. I want to know what to expect when I meet with her probation officer this week and what to expect when we go to court.
Morning, and I need some advice. Or rather I need my husband
Morning, I'm Cristina and I need some advice. Or rather I need my husband to take my advice. I am in Austin, TX and my family is currently under CPS investigation due to ongoing fighting between the two of us. We have lawyered up as this is second time under investigation. I don't know if you've heard but our TX gov Abbott has just ordered every case worker to immediately visit whatever they consider abused or neglected kids, "open cases." I am thinking, and this is my question, that it might be a good time to take a halloween vacation, especially since my 4 year old has bruised knees from being unaware of her running capabilities. Please advise

I'm a little confused about my divorce. I remarried and only
I'm a little confused about my divorce.I remarried and only have my income whereas my husband had separate property. I used my income to help pay for my daughter's college where he used his separate property. I had no assets but make a great salary and he makes less than I do, but did not get wiped out during the economic downturn and had savings for college.Soooo- now that we are getting a divorce, can he claim the money I spent on my daughters college?
