Legal Answers
Q. Should I let my ex know that I know about her adultery before we go to divorce court, or let it be a surprise?
A: I would suggest that you reach out to a local family law attorney in your area (Irving) so the attorney can sit down with you, learn what's been filed so far in the matter and better understand the facts surrounding your situation. Adultery is not illegal in Texas. However, it may affect how the property is divided. The attorney will help you to add/amend your pleadings to incorporate this fact if this is relevant and applicable.
Q. Due to Covid I got behind on child support since last year. No income since last July.
A: Thanks for your question! We would need some more context as I'm not sure what your question is exactly. I would suggest that you reach out to a local family law attorney in your area so they can sit down with you and learn more about your situation and review the child support order. It sounds like you are wanting to modify the amount of child support ordered. An attorney's assistance will be valuable in this process.
Q. Deadline to request summer possession dates was on 03/15 ex didnt request dates until 04/30, is it valid?
A: I would agree with what my fellow colleague stated. The final decree will dictate deadlines and rights and duties. However, even if you technically are correct and your ex missed the deadline, I would encourage that you just allow them to exercise those extra days of possession for the benefit of your child(ren). In the end, I'm sure your ex would be grateful and so would your kids.
