Customer reply replied 11 months ago
she received an order of registration of the original NM order I imigane via the state of NM the gave her 20 days to respond if the original order is contested but now he has a different days off and a way higher paying job should we respond?
Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

So once she is in Texas 6 months with the kids she can file for support or custody orders, etc where she is located here in Texas under something called Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act.

Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) is a Uniform Act drafted by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws in 1997. ... As of January 22, 2016, the only state that has not adopted the UCCJEA is Massachusetts.

Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act - Wikipedi

If it has been less than 6 months she could file in NM if she chooses where the divorce was granted.

If it has been more than 6 months it makes sense to file in Texas where she lives.

Thanks and thanks for rating 5 stars,Ask anything you have here no need for a call, I will answer.

but should she reply to the letter to modify the support here in TX ?
Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

No if he filed it there she will have to respond there, she can have lawyer do motion to transfer claiming Texas has jurisdiction under UCCJEA, that would be a good start and force him to come to Texas where she is.

but he is here in tx ?
Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

She can still motion to transfer it, it belongs in Texas he filed in wrong court and doesn't realize it.Thats her next move.

Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

She can do a response here to his motion claiming Texas has jurisidction, Response and Motion to Transfer Case and set out the parties have moved and the children have resided in Texas for the prior 6 months under the UCCJEA the case should be located to wherever county, Texas where the parties and children reside.If she has to do this pro se then don't worry about being perfect the court will likely grant it.

Thanks and thanks for rating 5 stars.
