2 Questions Answered
- Q. I have every other weekend possession of my children and my weekend was at the start of spring break.
- A: This really depends on how the possession and access schedule is written in your court order. If you have every other weekend possession of your children, you may have a modified possession and access schedule. Under the Standard Possession Order (SPO), if you live within 100 miles of the other parent, the non-custodial parent has the right to possession: * 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekends of every month * Thursday evenings during the school year, *alternating holidays, and *an extended period of time (30 days) during summer vacation. Under the SPO, Spring Break is usually alternated. Take a look at the order and see if special provisions were written that deal with spring break and the weekends before and after spring break. You may consider consulting with an attorney in your area as well.
- Q. What can I say to the opposing party if I don’t want to provide my personal information in a custody battle?
- A: What the opposing attorney has sent you is known as discovery. You must respond with your answers and/or objections within 30 days of being served the discovery. If not, the opposing attorney can ask for sanctions against you from the court. Discovery can be tricky and there are different rules that apply to each type of discovery. Those rules can be found in the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure. A judge can order that you turn over this information to the opposing side. Moreover, under the Texas Family Code, you are required to provide your social security number, driver's license number, current residence address, mailing address, employer's name, employer's mailing address, and work telephone number for the final order. There is information on Texas Law Help regarding discovery, but I do not suggest attempting to do this on your own. You should consult with an attorney in your area as soon as possible.
