Two lawyers rolled on me getting the felon my wife and kids live with out with a morals clause. Now it's been a year. It's probably to late. Actually now she has two men living with her in the kids. I'm trying for custody. But I keep getting bum lawyers who promise it all. Then when when they are paid. Nothing.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It's awesome. The roommate before them was a tranny. Not only is he a felon. No job. And my child support pays it all. Pretty cool! Huh....

How do you get a morals clause Texas? Is there a time length with the two people living together?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
My guess is it is up to the judge.
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

It would have to be something that was agreed to and added to any divorce decree unless your county already has a standing one.

Some counties in Texas have a standing order in place that puts an automatic “morality clause” in place while you are going through a divorce. The counties include:

  1. Bexar County
  2. Bell County
  3. Brazos County
  4. Collin County
  5. Denton County
  6. Erath County
  7. Fannin County
  8. Hutchinson County
  9. Jasper County
  10. Kaufman County
  11. Montgomery County
  12. Newton County
  13. Sabine County
  14. San Augustine County
  15. Stephens County
  16. Wise County
  17. Young County
