10 Questions Answered
- Q. How do I get the federal court to investigate a bankruptcy case that was disregarded by debtor.
- A: Child support payments generally cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. This means that a parent who owes child support cannot escape this duty by filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcies do not act as a stay, or hold, on actions to modify child support obligations. Since you state that the child support obligation was reduced and paid off in the bankruptcy, you may want to contact the attorney who represented you in the bankruptcy, or hire an attorney to determine the status of the child support obligation. You may be able to obtain free legal services through your local legal aid organization, or by contacting your local bar association.
- Q. My childrens mother is moving them to Anchorage Alaska from San Antonio Texas. I do not agree with this what can I do?
- A: You should review the custody order regarding the terms of custody for you and their mother. Generally, there is language in the custody order that prevents one parent from moving the children a certain distance away from the other parent, and from moving the children out of the state because Texas courts have jurisdiction over the children. You may hire an attorney to file a pleading contesting their mother moving them out of the state, set it for hearing, and provide their mother with notice of the filing and the hearing. You may want to request injunctive relief to prevent their mother from moving the children.
- Q. Where do I get legal assistance (Pro bono) to transfer my daughter's guardianship from Midland TX to Amarillo Tx
- A: You may contact Legal Aid of Northwest Texas at its Midland office at (432) 686-0647 to find out whether you are eligible for their legal services. You may also contact the Midland County Bar Association or the Midland County Young Lawyers Association for pro bono assistance. You may also contact the Potter County Bar Association at (814) 274-7292 to inquire about pro bono legal assistance.
