4 Questions Answered

Q. Can my son’s mother file for a review of order at any time? Even if we just agreed on a new orders after three years?
A: An order if modified less than a year or under three years just needs to show that there is a substantial and material change.
Q. I did not pay child support to the state but to the mother who moved to mx with my child. Which problems could I face.
A: If you have a current child obligation or had a past obligation you need to make sure that these direct payments are recorded properly with the OAG especially if you have an order. The OAG has no way of knowing you made any payments to mom unless someone notifies them of this. Even still direct payments that are not specified in a court order can be construed as a gift and not child support payments at all.
Q. Do Judge's verbal ruling have to be written by attorneys always? and given to their clients? I live in Texas.
A: Typically, once a judge renders an order, it is the responsibility of one of the attorney's to deduce that order into a written form that can be followed by both parties. If you are having problem's try to reach out to your attorney some more and ask when they order will be entered. A grievance is not always the solution. You can also hire another attorney to take over the case and write the order if you are unable to effectively communicate with your counsel.
Q. Can my current husband adopt his step daughters if her biological father has nothing to do with her?
A: A step parent cannot do a step-parent adoption without termination of one parent's rights. In this case- you will need to bring a combined suit to terminate dad's rights and a suit for step parent adoption.
