Ely, This one kind of crosses family law and educational

Ely,This one kind of crosses family law and educational law.I need to know the TEA citations that deal with a disabled person (ADHD, and/or Special ed) being accused of being a bully and suspended without any hearing or anything. What he did was just the expression of his ADHD, and not violent. I am going to push back to the school, but I need help.

I have recently taken a paternity test and have found out I

I have recently taken a paternity test and have found out I am not the father of the child I have been paying child support for, my name was put on the birth certificate. At the time this happened I was no where around so was not able to dispute beingnamed, once I found out about it it was too late, according to FOC. I understand I owe back payments regardless but can you tell me what I need to do going forward, what steps to take to clear up the paternity. Thank you

Granddaughter (just turned 20), junior in college. College

Granddaughter (just turned 20), junior in college. College is in KS near us. Home is in Allen TX. We're in Junction City KS. She spends several weekends with us. Last May announced she didn't want to go home. Had tried to tell her parents she is gay.....evidently received a very bad reaction. She worked all summer at with an AmeriCore group 30 miles from home in Dallas, so came home with her friends several times. There is terrible tension in the home. The other 3 siblings (17 & 13 & 9) are embarrassed. Dad is Hispanic (quick temper....but loves her very much) To add to the problem, her mom found a diary from when she was 8-9 years old, describing that she had been repeatedly molested by a female....parent of a girl on her soccer team who would host sleepovers.....as did other parents (have sleepovers). They have talked to the county attorney....the woman has since moved to another subdivision, but the name was in the diary. Mom is scared and angry, Dad is more vocal, gut has obviously said some things that hurt deeply. Parents have been to counseling, daughter does not want to go. She is now back here in KS at school...loves it there. Parents are continuing with counseling (I think), but daughter is not ready to go. Counselor suggested just letting her "cool off" for a while, then if she still doesn't was to face that she needs to talk to a professional who knows how to work with this. It's not the being gay that is the problem, although initially it was a SHOCK! It is the face that there is a female pedophile out there (Mom and Dad have her name and address, and have spoken to the county attorney (Collin County TX) We are her surrogate parents when she is at school 60 miles from us. We were the first ones except her parents she told about possibly being gay, which puts us in an awkward position. We know she wants to "hide" here instead of going home during school term breaks. Our feeling is that she needs to be encouraged to go home. Parents are VERY supportive, and continue going for counseling for themselves, but daughter is fighting it. We are 70 and 77...husband has had 3 heart attacks and bypass surgeries. Stress is what we absolutely don't need. But our granddaughter needs us. She is so angry. Help.....we are caught in the middle, not sure what to do or say........or not. (Add the stress that our daughter....the Mom.....lost her job in October, and has now filed a humongous lawsuit to resolve the problem. There is WAY too much stress in that house as well. At least now they can keep her on their insurance for a while longer. We need help in knowing what to do, or not do to please

BACKGROUND: We are UK citizens and have a surrogate in California

BACKGROUND:We are UK citizens and have a surrogate in California currently. Her insurance covers all pregnancy and childbirth costs, but it seems that we cannot get insurance for our new born babies. We have found ourself in this situation through bad advice by our UK surrogacy agency - not through negligence on our part. The babies will automatically be US citizens by birth but we will be taking them back to the UK as soon as possible. QUETIONS:1. If the new-borns once born, had an emergency (I know the hospital has to treat them) – can they do this under Emergency Medicaid (as they don't have insurance but are US citizens by birth)2. What would happen if we walked away from the hospital (don't want to do this) / or just offered what we could afford and then walked away?Just trying to minimise our financial exposure and potential loss

I have been divorced for three years. My ex and our boys

I have been divorced for three years. My ex and our boys ages 14 and 16 live in Wisconsin. At the time of the divorce I lived in Phoenix. Since then I have remarried and now live in New Jersey. My ex and I used the same lawyer which was a client of his and past neighbor. They drew up the papers (so my husband set up everything) and I agreed to everything and signed the papers. The boys see me on holidays and stay with during the summer. I go to Green Bay as much as I can but I stay in hotels while I am there. I pay 20% of their private schools, medical care, clothing and one the boys braces. The travel costs. Up until now, we were paying half of the travel and now my ex and his wife have decided not to do it anymore. Stating its not fair that I chose to live further then a drive away. He is a Certified Financial Planner and makes $10,000 a month. Up until recently, I have been a single mom making $14 a month. I did get a flat settlement which was the split cost of our home and investments that were mine after being married 16 years. I was a stay at home mom all of the years to be able to support my ex in his career. Before I was married I went to school as a Medical Assistant. That is my job now. I have always paid what was due and even spent more money then I could afford. When the boys are with me, I pay all food and enteraintment and the such and never send a spread sheet to them to reimburse my costs. My ex and his wife have a very different life style then my current husband and I do. We don't have the kind of income that they provide, however my ex constantly harrasses me and my husband my texts and emails and even bulles me. He doesn't go by our divorce papers which he was the one that written it up to begin with. He decides to change things when it better suits him. We are in the middle of building a home and we expressed that due to the papers in escrow and such we can not pull out so much money at once. We owed my ex around $2000 for three months and expressed that we would have to do a lower amount for now and with the bullying from the ex my husband told me not communicate with the ex and cool it and now an email today from the ex states he has contacted his attorney and does not like my lack of communication and will put a stop to the boys traveling to see me. I have no idea what I have done that he has been in control for day one and now he wants to threaten me and my husband. I always give in just to make things quiet and not to upset the boys or let them know what is going on. My husband of course is so mad and wants to fight back......I don't know what to do.
