- Q. I need to find out how I go about getting guardianship of my grandson because my daughter needs to go to treatment.
- A: Parents generally have superior rights to grandparents. A court order is necessary to obtain custody rights over the child. A party seeking conservatorship is required to serve both parents with a petition and ask the Court to award conservatorship. An affidavit may be obtained from a parent allowing the caretaker to make certain decisions for the child, but that would not prevent the other parent from coming and taking the child if he chose to do so unless there is a Court order.

- Q. Can I file a divorce case in dallas if I was not physically living there for the past 6 months ?? it was my home before
- A: If your husband is still residing in Dallas you may be able to use his residence but generally there is a requirement that one or both parties need to reside in the county in which they file. If you are pregnant and it is your husband’s child, you will need to wait until the baby is born to finalize the divorce. This is for educational purposes only and does not create an attorney/client relationship.
- Q. Concerned over wording of Debt Settlement Agreement.
- A: I am always concerned when an agreement is not clear in its wording. You might ask that the wording be changed to allow you to feel more comfortable before signing. I would suggest that you allow an attorney to review the letter for you as they may be able to determine more from actually seeing the letter. You may be able to find one to look at it for a reasonable amount or even for free if that is all they are doing for you.
