    in indiana divorce was in texas

    I am looking for help with resolving questions with my divorce. My divorce was done in Texas and I live in Indiana. My ex got custody of my daughter mainly because I couldn't afford an attorney at the time. I let my daughter visit him for awhile while I was attending college believing my ex would keep his word and not take her. The divorce was finalized in December of 2010 and then modified at my cost again in the summer of 2011 because my ex refused to agree on a pick up date and travel arrangements. Now he is calling me (again) wanting me to agree on an increase in child support since I finally found a job. I am very aggravated with my representation throughout the divorce but it was the only attorney that would take my case with my limited income at the time. My ex constanly undermines my relationship with my daughter and I am told there is nothing I can do, along with his frequent harrassment and demands. I am willing to pay but I need to find an attorney who is willing to review my case and who will let me know if there is anything that can be done. I would like custody of my daughter. My last attorney told me that I cannot do anything unless I move to Texas. My ex is now preparing to move to another state. If anyone has advice or can help, I am willing to discuss further through email. Please help and thank you.

    So don't agree to the increase in child support. Make him take you to court, where you can request court ordered visitation. Custody change is unlikely, barring a material change in circumstances for the child.

    I do not know why you are having a difficult time finding a qualified family law attorney. You can contact your local BAR association and they will refer you to someone, or refer you to a referral agency and they will put you in touch with some one.
