I reside in Texas and filed for divorce in prince county va.

I reside in Texas and filed for divorce in prince William county va. My husband did not respond and refuses to sign off on the divorce. He then hired an attorney that filed another divorce petition in the same court, however they included custody in the petition where mine did not. The kids were less than a month away from Texas being their home state. Also, the kids never lived in prince William county but did live in Fairfax county Virginia. Are they allowed to file another divorce complaint or can that be thrown out to where they would have to respond to my original divorce complaint instead?

I have a bit of a "different" type situation. My daughter

Hi. I have a bit of a "different" type situation. My daughter signed temporary custody of her daughter, to my ex husband. The child is two. He and his wife are named the Maternal Grandparents in the papers, and I am no where listed in said papers. Do I have a legal right to fight this, so that I can visit with my grand daughter? What are my rights, where this is concerned?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am Louisiana. Nothing has been filed, since I found out that I am not named as the legal maternal grandmother, No.JA: Got it. I'm sure you'll come up with a good name.Customer: I'm sorry???JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My ex and I have a verbal agreement, that I'm supposed to be able to go get my granddaughter every other weekend. That has been cut down to supervised visits, per the psychologist, which is NOT in the papers, either.
