Postby coqui » Mon Jul 25, 2011 5:11 pm

I was in court last 30 of June, My ex want to modified Child Support, she was asking for a rise ( $1500) and I was asking for decresed. Since I return from overseas I am unemploye ( almost 5 months now) . The Judge aks us for our attorneys email to send them his final decition, still 26 days and we have not news. How much time do they need to make a desition about child support? There is any limit of days for them to do their job? . This is TEXAS.

Take a chill pill, Bro. Family court judges generally take their sweet time in these matters. He'll get around to a decision after vacation - maybe.

If you expect a decision in less than 30 days, you're expecting too much. 60-90 days is about right. Start getting your boxers in a bunch after 120 days.

Best thing is to just question your attorney and see what his/her take is on this. Before getting stressed just ask hi/her and see what they have to say.

If it's not already apparent, the judge, your lawyer, and everyone else doesn't care about your financial situation. What makes you think that they would?

You could perhaps ask your attorney to call the judges assistant and ask about it, and possibly throw in a comment about your situation.

Manage your lawyer. Tell her that you want a letter drafted in regards to the reduction since it has ben 80 days and also retroactive to the date of filing. Just because she has a law degeree does not mean squat. You pay her fees and you manage your case. If you choose to let her run you over then that is your fault.
