  1. I went on an filed for petition for divorce and informed I had filed. A fees days later he is caught with contraband(cell phone) and is now in solitary confinement and moved from camp to low security facility( he messed up) when he gets out "the hole" so I have only heard from him via letter in the mail. I have called his counselor to see if I can have permission to bring papers for him To sign BUT only get voice mail and no returned call. I know he can't receive visits or allowed to make calls so how do I serve him with less than 60 days to go? I get conflicted or very little Info (we have no info on him....") about him or what he will be allowed To do as if he is lost in the system literally. Any sincere advice is appreciated.
  2. Medically retired from active duty December 2015 for 13 combat related injuries. Filed a motion to reduce child support in the same month. Jumped through all the hoops that the Texas OAG wanted me to jump through with documentation being sent in to support reduction in child support. Advised that due to my disabilities, i was unable to travel to court appearances and requested other accomodations via ADA. Accomodations were denied and case had been dragged out. We are now in November and the motion is yet to be granted (I keep getting the run a round). This process has caused me so much emotional distress and mental anguish, that my VA PTSD rating went up as a result of what the state is putting me through. I need some help or some advice on how to file a lawsuit against the state. I don't have a whole lot of money, I was infantry combat medic...I don't know how to give up or back down.
  3. If the "Grand Jury" did not indict the individual that was arrested with me and is really the person who the drugs belong to but he later admits to the drugs being his, can the grand jury bring him up on charges again for the same case, will they lower or raise the severity of the charges as well? What all can ultimately happen to this other man?
  4. Somewhere I had discovered that police were not allowed to go forth with a vehicle search, even if I was being taken to jail, if I had reason to believe that there was foul play about to take place but, I had requested a stand-in witness to view the officer as he entered and searched my vehicle and the witness had to be able to reach our location within a reasonable amount of time. Kind of similar to the police dog open air sniffs. Is there truth behind this in Texas? In recent time I had a police officer working with an informant to plant meth in my truck and the police officer pull me over for my traffic violation warrant, take me to jail, and magically find meth in my truck. The whole night seemed extremely odd and very fishy that foul play was about to happen so when I was pulled over I continuously demanded that I have a stand in witness before the officer entered my vehicle. DENIED! The one officer that I was most concerned about entered my truck on the driver's side by himself for several minutes while the other two cops detained me and the informant. The officer emerged from my vehicle asking if I myself was a good enough witness. He pulled out his phone, took a rear shot of my truck and trailer, opened both passenger doors to take another picture, opened my center console and stated "What is this?!" Funny part is that not an hour before this took place I had emptied my entire center console looking for butt connectors to wire up my stereo. No dope was in there at that time and I hadn't bought dope in almost three months at that point. I had just lost my house and was in the middle of moving from being evicted. Had no money to buy dope if i wanted to! Now I'm going to court on it and the one video that would show the officer's misconduct is blacked out. What can I do to prove this officer's role in this blatant set-up operation they ran on me. Whether or not I am a drug user should not be a factor because if there is one thing I can guarantee you, it's that if I legitimately had meth on me during this search, one I'd have been aware of it and two they would have never in a million years found it! Not with dogs, not by tearing my truck apart, nothing, no way no how, GUARANTEED! That is one thing that doesn't happen! I don't and have never lost or misplaced money or dope. Help please?! My court appointed is trying to talk me into signing first offer. They are enhancing me to a habitual offender and starting sentencing at 15 to life!
  5. 6 weeks into my marriage, my husband was arrested and eventually sentenced with approximately $20,000 restitution he has to pay. We have been married now about 15 months. He committed a crime unbeknownst my knowledge and prior to us knowing each other and yes he did NOT disclose some potential "legal issues" that could potentially lead to an arrest prior to us "walking down the aisle". Three months no after he went to prison I get a 18 page Financial Statement I am told to fill out to assess our assets and income since this is a community property STATE or it will be subpoena is I do not fill out. QUESTION: although I am not complicit to the crime or restitution can the federal government eventually come after my income or assets I aquire (now/later)while married to him if he does not pay for his restitution? I still have 3 children I am raising not by him but ultimately my repsonsibilty to care and provide for. I don't need this financial concern. After speaking to some legal counsel I was told Divorce may be the "smart" thing to do. Divorce or annulment is what I am considering to completely separate and "distance myself" from any financial responsibilty to his debt and crime. #IdidntaskFORanyofTHIS Advice/knowledge is appreciated.
  6. if i was in an accident and he car hit me as i had a green arrow to turn and he hit me on the back but he has no insurance and i dont want to get my insurance to pay my damages what are my options to make him pay ?
  7. I just finished going to court and fighting for custody of my two daughters. I lost and we agreed on terms and signed the paper work. I then noticed after receiving the papers, that there was nothing in there concerning back arrears on child support while I had the girls in my possession, but not through the court on paper. Now the Attorney General is coming after me and garnishing my wages until I go to court and file "___________." This is where I am having a problem. I can't afford another attorney, so I want to file the paper work myself and represent myself. I have all the proof that they (my two girls) were in my home during the time they are trying to collect back child support. I have apartment leases, school records and my ex on the stand, under oath, stating the girls did live with me. Please I just need to know what forms to file. Thank you, Desperate mom
  8. Smith co texas I was arrested with a warrantless arrest. I was given a bond of 10,000.00 for a misdemenor offense. The Texas code of criminal procedure limits that amount to 5,000.00. My question is how do I recuperate the money that I had to pay extra to the bail bond co.
  9. Background: My brother left home many years ago to escape an abusive stepfather, and we never heard from him again. Fast Forward: Stepfather passes away, mother is now elderly, and sister (myself) has spent 25 years searching for her long-lost brother. Miracle: Two months ago, we found my brother alive and well and also living in Texas. We had a joyful reunion when he joined us for my mother's 80th birthday. When asked why he didn't stay in touch, he explained that he didn't want to deal with our stepfather and just assumed that mom and I would eventually forget all about him. He was thrilled to learn that we had been searching for him and surprised that our mother was even still alive. Tragedy: Two weeks after our reunion, my brother died from a brain aneurysm. After our initial shock and grief began to subside, mom and I began the process of wrapping up his affairs and so forth. We've got an attorney assisting us with gaining access to his bank accounts so that we can pay off his debts. Question: We learned from his employer that he had life insurance and a sizable 401K account, each worth approximately $40,000. Upon meeting with the benefits people, we learned that he had designated a national charity as beneficiary for both accounts, which he was required to reaffirm annually. We are certain that he would have changed his beneficiary designations to our mother's name. There was just no time to do so before he died. The only evidence we have is hearsay from his former coworkers that he was thrilled to be reunited with his family. We feel that we should make a claim as his rightful heirs and should receive those funds. We'd appreciate some opinions from you in this matter. Thank you so much.

  13. My mother in law recently passed away. My father in law passed away 3 years early. We had been told many times by my father in law that the will shares everything equally among the 4 children. There is not good will between my wife and her brother who is the executor. Is he legally required to read the will and inform all the children when he does so?
  14. I recently heard that you were legally allowed to leave or sign out of school (Not drop out, specifically sign out and come back the next day) I am the age of 17. I have left at other highschools and have never had a problem, however now that I am here they refuse to allow me to leave without parent permission. My question is atthe age of 17, are you legally allowed to sign yourself out of school? I also have side questions, is school legally allowed to keep you after class? At 18 can I legally eave class without parent reference/permission? Please reply, Id like a direct answer to the question but Id'd also appreciate going into depth as well. A little bit of both would help me understand and grasp this topic easily, and just for some extra information, the location is Plano Texas.
  15. I own a town home with assigned parking spaces in a carport. The homes were converted from an apt complex many years earlier. I have two vehicles parked in my assigned spaces. Due to title issues I was unable to obtain registration stickers. However, I had the cars inspected (required annually in Texas prior to registration) and both passed. However, due to the title issues, could not go down and get the registration stickers. I have been working on the title issues to get resolved. The HOA had both towed after warning me about registration. I told them the reason for no stickers but they didn't care. Nobody else that I know of here has had vehicles towed for lack of stickers. The Manager of the HOA is targeting me because I have 3 vehicles all parked in assigned spaces (I only have one space but contracted with other owners to use their spaces).. There is a shortage of parking here and they want my spaces for other owners. While sympathetic, I have the right to use those other spaces. I think my cars where towed illegally. The rules and regulations are in conflict with the Associanion CC&Rs and Bylaws over the parking rules. I am suing the HOA. for costs of towing, damage to vehicles, and cost of bringing the lawsuit. Hope someone will comment or offer advice, either way. Thanks Background Information.docx

  22. Hi, I am seeking professional advice on whether or not I have a legal case against a hospital in Longview Tx. The story in a short version is, I was sent to the hospital for follow up testing by a Imaging office that my doctor sent me to for my final pregnancy scan. The office sent me to the hospital due to my sons decreasing heart rate. I was there for a fetal non stress test at 33ws 1 day. My son wasn't move much on the sonogram as well as he heart rate kept fluctuating from 180 at times to 40bpm. I was told they would be doing further tests at the hospital and that I would be taken straight up to labor and deliver. Arrived at hospital, checked in, told the receptionist what was going on. Was told someone would be right now, time kept passing, I went back to the desk and ask if I could just take myself, was told no, that she would call again, waited another 20 mins, finally a nurse came and got me apologizing for the wait. Now I have waited for approximately 45 or more mins, upon entering the room , changing into a gown, giving urine sample. The nurse start looking for fetal tones, could not find any called in others, long story short, I had to have a emergency csection but my son Caden had passed away. I eventually went back to the patient relations coordinator and asked her at what point does a pregnant woman go straight to the back without any wait. I asked for the policy and procedures. She told me at 20 weeks you do not wait, you will check in and go straight back. So I asked why did I have to wait almost an hour to be able to go back even when I asked to walk myself up? I said my son is gone now I feel because I had to wait so long even though waiting isn't a part of your policy. She proceeded to write some things down and told me there would be an investigation. 2 weeks later I receive a call stating the CEO of the hospital would like to hold a meeting with me, advice I was given told me not to go to the meeting at all due to the fact that the CEO of a hospital never wants to meet with you. I have went back and gotten all my health records, for myself and my son. I was told that I had one other set of records to get but when I went to get them Friday Sept 16th, I was told that she couldn't give me anything else and she had nothing else to give, even though the same girl showed me documents previously that needed to still be signed and told me to come back the following week. Also one of the nurses told my husband, my cousin and a friend that was in the hospital that night that, "they dropped the ball again, somebody messed up and they are going to have to pay for this" She started this after my husband asked her what in the world happened? I didn't learn of this comment until weeks later. If anything can be done possibly in the case please let me know. Also after looking at my medical files, it stated that I had a thin umbilical cord and something wrong with the placenta, due to me being a high risk, I received sonograms every Friday, but this was never mentioned.
  23. I replied to all on an email that I told the original sender Fu$& You on. Some of the recipients from the email were minors. I have been contacted by angry parents telling me I broke the law and they are seeking legal action.. I am having trouble finding case law and statutes on this. Did I commit a crime?
  24. I am in serious discussions concerning a possible adult adoption of a long time close family friend that we've known since she was 6 yrs old. I live in Texas and she currently lives 2 hrs away in Oklahoma. Her parents died when she was 14, soon followed by all of her natural grandparents. She is somewhat estranged from the rest of her family. She now has children of her own and I am filling the role of grandmother to her children. The purpose of the adoption would be to legally establish our relationship for purposes of identification as next of kin and inheritance. Currently she has sole legal custody of her young children and the bio father has no visitation rights. His paternal rights, though, have not yet been terminated. His family name in the town where she currently lives has a negative stigma. If we follow through with the adult adoption, can the Judge also approve a name change for the grandchildren, or would we have to seek termination of the father's parental rights first? As I said, the mother currently has an order granting her sole legal custody of all of the children.Also, would I file the petition for adoption in Texas or Oklahoma?
  25. I need to know how long the Attorney General's office in Texas can hold child support payments they have collected from the NCP. I was told they had 48 hours to forward payment after receiving it from the NCP. They receive the NCP payments via direct deposit, there are no arrears, other payments being withheld or any other extenuating circumstances which would cause them to keep payments longer than necessary. Is there a law in place that states how long they can hold on to these payments?
