If you got married and did not get a prenup signed and wish that you had, it is not too late. Texas also authorizes a post-marital agreement. A post marital agreement can do anything that a pre-marital agreement could accomplish towards future earnings.

Q. My wife and I are getting a divorce she's not allowed me to see my son without any paperwork she is gone into hiding in
A: You have a number of complex issues that will require the assistance of an experienced family law attorney. Your divorce is most likely going to be a separate case from custody of your sister's biological child. Based on the facts you have listed, you or your wife, or the both of you together, could file for custody, but the longer that you delay, the more difficult that it would be to prevail in a custody battle. I strongly urge you to file for custody immediately. The time period between when the child last lived with you and the date that you file are going to be the two most relevant dates in determining if you can preserve your rights to your son. This is not a case that the attorney general, or the county will file for you. You need to take action yourself.
Q. what happens if both parents get married to each other while haveing a custody hearing with a child they share? In texas
A: Child support and custody orders in Texas will state right in the order that they cease to be effective if the parties marry each other. But you don't need to get married to end the current litigation. Whoever brought the current suit needs to file a non-suit, telling the court that they want to drop it, and the court suit will be over. If the action was brought by the attorney general's office, and you have since gotten married, you should contact the attorney general and tell them about the marriage and they should drop the suit.
Q. How can emotional/verbal/narcissist abuse be proven in court? And how can it affect divorce outcomes?
A: You give a lot of examples of how you can prove verbal and emotional abuse in your question. Your own testimony at court is the most obvious. Anyone who has seen or heard your husband be abusive to you would also be a potential witness. The pictures and audio recordings are admissible, as is the smashed cell phone. If he is trying to get custody or you are requesting that he be awarded only supervised visitation, and he is resistant to this, you can request an Amicus Attorney be appointed to represent the children's interest. The Amicus can talk to your children directly about what they have experienced. How much impact all of this would have depends upon what issues are being disputed. They will have a huge impact on custody if it is disputed. They might also have an impact on the division of property. There are many factors to be considered. You should schedule an appointment with an experienced family law attorney to ensure that you receive an accurate answer to your questions.
