11 Questions Answered

Q. I am a grandparent. I would like to persure custody of my granddaughter.
A: You may petition for custody if the child had been in your possession and care for at least 6 months (not necessarily consecutive months). Consult a family law attorney to help you.
Q. Is there an attorney who does pro bono or reduced rate divorce for a victim of abuse?
A: Try Lone Star Legal Aid on Market Street in Galveston.
Q. Ok so like if my judgement papers from 2003 the day of my sentencing say from the judge I don't have to register under a
A: If a person is convicted of a sexually-oriented crime then that person is required under Chapter 62 to register as a sex offender. However, without more information here I can’t make determination as to the length of time you were required to remain registered. Further, their are options available under that same chapter that allows motion for early release or exemption.
Q. Can a policeman charge you with possession of cocaine if you actually have crack on you legally
A: Yes, you can be arrested for possession of any illegal substance. However if police misidentify the substance you actually possessed the DA can drop the charge on the cocaine and then proceed on a charge for the crack.
Q. is There any type of legal document or court order to make my wife or Chase Bank transfer house money to my account
A: I agree with Ms. Thornton’s answer. Whether or not your name is on the mortgage is irrelevant. What matters is whether the house was purchased before marriage or during the marriage. If it was purchased during the marriage, the house is presumed community property. I recommend consultation with a family lawyer.
Q. Can she put me on child support? Do i have any legal obligation to the child?
A: If her husband had his name placed on the child’s birth certificate and he resided with the child the first two years of child’s life, he is the presumed father, but this can be rebutted through a paternity suit. So if she files a paternity suit then the court is likely to order a dna test to make sure you are the father. If you are in fact the father you can voluntarily terminate your parental rights.
Q. I pay cs to my ex for our daughter. N she's keeping our daughter away from me CS gets taken out of my check
A: Your obligation to pay child support is not contingent on whether or not you are allowed visitation with your child and vice-versa. You are entitled to see your child, so you want to see a lawyer who practices family law who can help you enforce your visitation rights.
Q. Inheritance and divorce
A: No you aren’t. An inheritance is separate property regardless of how the beneficiary chooses to spend it. Her paycheck however is income. And all income received during the marriage is presumed community property.
Q. Is the cost of a drug inpatient program responsibility of non-custodial parent? My daughter is 17.
A: The answer to your question lay in your Final decree of Divorce, your Order of Conservatorship, Mediation Settlement Agreement, or whatever document you have that lays out each parent's rights and duties. Whichever parent is responsible for medical care that is who must pay for the program. Sometimes this is a shared expense. Your being estranged from your daughter does not relieve you of your rights and duties as her parent.
