55 Questions Answered
- Q. we were set for mediatrion till i saw the price tag. being a single mother i can not pay the price tag for my lawyer .
- A: Not possible to answer based on limited information provided. You can try and contact Legal Aid for your county and see if they can step in to help. Or you can try and mediate the case yourself. Fortunately, mediation is a lot less formal than Court and you will know the facts of the case. You can insist that the other party cover some of your attorney's fees to help out. Or you can try and work with your current attorney to find a payment plan arrangement that would work. Or you could seek the assistance of a different attorney. Or you could see if someone would take your case pro bono by reaching out to the Texas State Bar and trying to find help through them.
- Q. Can I take my name off of a checking account his money goes into and make it to where we can not transfer money.
- A: Your question would need to. have a lot more information before anyone can answer definitively. If divorce petition has been filed, then you will need to review the County Standing Orders to determine what you may or may not do. This is totally different in each county. If divorce has not been filed, yet, then the Standing Orders may not be in place but you need to be able to justify your actions with a legitimate reason in case you are asked to defend yourself.
- Q. I had my husband served divorce papers and a Temporary Restraining order and he won't leave. What can I do ?
- A: Call the Sheriff's Department and ask to speak to a supervisor. The Sheriff is tasked with enforcing Court Orders. If they still won't do anything, call the Court and ask to speak with the Judge's assistant or Clerk. Tell them what is happening and ask if they wouldn't mind making an enforcement call to the Sheriff. Be persistent.
