Getting a divorce! Anyone know a Lawyer?

I'm getting a divorce and need some good help. My soon to be ex-wife and I are going to fight for custody for my 3 month old son. I do not want her to get custody cuz when i was away in Baghdad, Iraq for 6 months she attempted suicide. So if she can't take care of herself how can she take care of my future bike riding son?

i'll just warn you ahead of time, so you don't get your hopes to high. In Texas, it is nearly impossible for the father to gain sole custody of the child. You have to prove that the mother is completely unfit, which is something very tricky to do.

sorry to hear about your divorce, and i hope it works out for the best for you, and your child.

I can even give you the # to a very helpful lawyer here in houston that is very good He was recommended to me from a freind! pm me if you want his info I just have to get the # again from my freind! but as far as fathers for equal rights its a group where you pay a small membership fee and they hold meetings where they answer questions and give advice.if you wish to fight custody alone or if you like the advice of a particular attorny there you can obtain his services, Thats what I did Im very glad that this group is out there to help fathers like us!

Kay Kreck 713-812-0448

I know a lot of lawyers and even have one in my family, but this is the only attorney I entrusted with my case. She is the attorney that will get things done for you, she's as evil (towards your soon to be ex) as any living person that I have ever known. A few years back I went through the worst experience of my life and Ms. Kreck and a few close family and friends were what kept me sane at a time that I couldn't deal with the I was going through.

She won't charge you for a consultation and you should at least consider talking to her and other lawyers before you make what will probably be the most important decision in your life.

Good luck, if you need help with any questions or anything else lemme know. I've walked in your shoes and I would be glad to help out with what I can.

There is an organization that is strictly for father and helping them out with legal issues, custody issues and everything. Houston based, I forget the name but i'll find it and give it to you. If she attempted suicide you have a very good chance of getting him. Good luck.

Sorry to hear about this. I just went through a divorce myself, under the same circumstances, and just last year. My daughter was only 5 months old when she filed, but 3 months old when she sprung the intent to do so. It was the worse thing a new proud father could ever hear. In Texas (and most anywhere around this Country), it's impossible for you to get primary custody as the father. But since you mentioned her attempted suicide, that might be something to help your case. It may also be determined that her depression was a byproduct of her pregnancy, and then post-pardom depression after birth. so they may encourage counseling. My Ex didn't want to admit anything related to her post-pardom, and in fact, flat out rejected the notion. But she was definitely a different person. Just 6 months prior, we were still holding hands, and talking about all the great things we were lokking forward to as a new family. My Ex was talking about how she looked forward to seeing our new daughter with her father, since it's something she never experienced. Then, suddenly, she wants to divorce......Completely f*cked up, whatever happened.

My biggest concern was for my daughter, and I fought for everything I can after she's 2-1/2 years old. Because their was nothing my Ex could say against me, we were able to negotiate "Extended Satandard Visitation" fo me, after she turns 2-1/2 yrs old (only 5-1/2 months to go)!!

Fight for Extended Standard. Ask your lawyer about it. Although they are two entirely different things, I agreed to pay her more than the State required Child Support, plus my daughter's full insurance. I'd rather be poorer in money, but have much time with my daughter as possible. Of course, now I regret it, because I pay almost $1k/month in CS plus her health insurance, in adtion to paying my Ex $110k. So don't do what I did. Fight for only what is required for Cs, because, it will hurt you bigtime. But don't ever settle for regular visitation. It's BS. In the end, my daughter will realize what happened, and know that my only priority was fighting for her, and our time together. The laws in Texas are really unfair for the father. I missed out on EVERTHING in my daughter's growing up life (first babble, first crawl, first walk, first word, first real bath, ... even her smelly !). But divorce all-in-all is really gonna hurt the child the most. BTW, my Ex's biological father left her when she was about 1-2yrs old. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I guess.

If there's anything you need, let me know. It's , and I've been through it.

I feel for you bro. I got full custody of my daughter when she was a yr old and now she is 9 so it can be done. First I went out and found a mean female attorney that did not take any ! She started doing some digging and got info on the ex and used against her. So anything you can use do it but before you do take a good look at yourself because they will. good luck to you.

Sorry to hear that- sucks

Start a file & paper trail everything, including past issues (such as the suicide att.) that can be documented, at the same time work on your soon to be ex as much as possible about coming to a mutual agreement on as many details as possible.... Property & custody issues in a devorce can drive the costs up to the tens of thousands range, the money you save will be better suited on helping your kids through this- They will suffer from it

+1 on fathers for equal rights, they helped me win custody of my daugther (4yrs. old at the time) over ten years ago.

Good Luck
