Q. Custody hearing in Texas
A: Everything that is said is not recorded. What is said is recorded if there is a court reporter and the Judge tells the court reporter to start recording. Contact the court reporter for the court that your case was in and ask if there is a transcript for the date that you are interested in.
Q. I need a family law attorney, but I make very little. Where do I start on getting help?
A: You have to be indigent to get free legal help. Apply for legal aid to see if you qualify. If you don't you should try to borrow money or sell something if you can in order to hire an attorney. Just to give you an idea of what you may be looking at in terms of attorneys fees I am currently representing a client in a similar situation and we were able to get visitation, but it cost over $20k in attorneys fees. There were also other fees such as therapist, travel, process server, copies, and court filing fees. I am not telling you this to discourage you. I just want you to have a realistic assessment of what the real cost is going to be. (Disclaimer: The Blacknall Firm is accepting cases in these counties: Dallas, Rockwall, Kaufman, and Collin.

Q. After marrying my husband I closed the child support case. Now we are getting a divorce. Can I reopen? 3yrs later (TX)
A: Child support will be taken care of in divorce. (The Blacknall Firm is accepting cases in these counties: Dallas, Rockwall, Kaufman, and Collin. This information is for educational purposes only. This does not constitute an attorney-client relationship.)
Q. i am married my wife is being a * and im needing a DNA testing for my youngest kid. and i also was needing divorce help
A: Hire a lawyer, file for divorce, request temporary orders hearing asking for temporary custody. You can do your own DNA test first if you would like without requesting it through the court. I don't think it is advisable to bring up the issue of paternity until you are sure of the result if you don't have to. It causes too many hard feelings.

This does not constitute an attorney-client relationship.)
Q. I had a geo restriction put on her but she moved 200 miles away and said nothing but keeps her old address what do I do
A: If the geographic restriction is being violated gather the proof that it is being violated, hire a lawyer to file a motion for contempt/enforcement. In addition, you should show up for your visitation on the dates and times they were ordered and document that you were there. You can stand by the address of the location and take a selfie with the address in the picture. You can go to a nearby store and buy something and keep the receipt. You can take a credible witness with you. There are many ways to document that you were there. Also, you mentioned that you cannot see your daughter alone. Based upon that comment I am assuming there is some sort of court ordered restriction on your visitation. You may want to consult with an attorney to discuss a plan of action that may eventually remove that restriction.
Q. I am getting remarried and I am the non-custodial parent. Am I required by law to notify the other parent?
A: Generally you are not required to notify the other party that you are remarrying except under the conditions related to sex offenders. However, review your final decree to make sure there are no specific provisions that address this particular issue.
Q. I have a question concerning family law...
A: In order to obtain a modification of the type of conservatorship in less than a year under the circumstances you briefly described above, you would need to be able to show that the mental, emotional or physical well being of the children is in danger. You will need to provide an affidavit that lists some of the reasons you believe this to be true. If the Judge thinks that the allegations in your affidavit deserve to be looked into then your action can move forward. If the Judge does not think the allegations deserve to be looked into the case will be dismissed. You should find an attorney to assist you as soon as possible because you do not want to risk being in contempt of a court order for refusal to allow court ordered visitation.
Q. I was arrested on bogus stalking charges 145 days ago, I have not heard anything from the courts what do I do?
A: If you bonded out of jail your bondsman should be in contact with you when the court starts to schedule you court dates. You can also check in with the court every so often to check for yourself whether you have a court date set. You may also want to make sure that the clerks have your correct mailing address just in case they mail you something.
Q. My husband been in tdc for a year now and detective came and questioned him about a murder then a week later he was
A: Your question does not have enough of the specific information needed for an attorney to give a specific response. It is probably best for your husband to hire an attorney who can advise him regarding his rights in this situation and guide him on the best course of action.
