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
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

Is it legal to use a surrogate mother in Michigan, assuming that there is no legal contract and no compensation beyond payment of health expenses? In reading the Surrogate Parenting Act of 1988, it is implied that a mentally sound person can, in fact, be a surrogate on a volunteer basis.
