9 Questions Answered

Q. I have joint custody here in Texas 2 hours every Thursday, then every 1st,3rd, 5th weekend. Can Request more time?
A: You can always go back and modify the original court order and ask to be primary conservator and your son live with you. Whenever there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances and you think the conditions at his Mom's house are detrimentally affecting him seek primary custody.
Q. I need some information on filing for a divorce and how much will it cost me?
A: The cost of a divorce depends on whether or not your case is contested or uncontested. If it's contested that means you anticipate a lot of fighting, whereas uncontested means you both are going to get through the process amicably. Other factors to consider are whether you have children, a home and debts. You should consult with a family law attorney to answer some of the more specific questions you may have.
Q. My husband cosigned a home loan for his mom, since then she has paid it off. Does he have ownership after she passes?
A: Financing a home and owning a home are not the same thing. If the Will states all property is to be divided, it should be divided. Did she put him on the deed or just the financing?
Q. How do you go about divorcing someone who is incarcerated?
A: You file for divorce and have them served with citation at the prison. It may costs a little more, but you can still get a divorce.
Q. Do i continue paying child support if my child turns 18 before he graduates high school?
A: It depends on the way it is ordered in your court papers. Typically, it's not whatever occurs first (i.e. 18th birthday or graduation), but the latter.
Q. I have just received a copy of my husbands answer to my petition of divorce. In It he has attached an addendum stating
A: It sounds strange to me too. He is not entitled to health insurance after you divorce, as most employers don't insure non-spouses. Sounds like he is just putting his "two cents in" because he's not happy about the divorce. You should consult with an attorney to see what your options are and how to move forward with your divorce.
Q. I filed papers for a divorce and my husband is now acting aggressive can I leave TX and go home to PA with my children
A: You cannot kidnap your own children, but you wouldn't want to do anything to complicate the divorce process.
Q. My ex is trying to make me pay a bill in his name or he will contest a divorce. Should I just pay it and be done?
A: I understand your frustration, but it isn't worth paying extra attorney's fees to turn an uncontested divorce into a contested divorce for $180.00. When divorces are uncontested the fees is reasonable and the process flows much smoother (and quicker).
Q. DivorceSettlement agreement in TX. We have agreed on everything.
A: Texas statute allows you to go back and modify the children portion of your decree whenever there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances; whereas, once the property is divided your agreement is binding unless someone failed to disclose a hidden asset.
