My question involves criminal law for the state of: TEXAS
I have plenty of evidence that supports parental alienation towards my husband. The mother has left stepdaughter with friends, relatives, etc and disappears for weeks on end. We have filed a motion for change in custody but was told we needed to hire an attorney. We have had every dorr slammed in our faces. We have police reoprts, audio recordings of her admitting to using drugs. She was married to a sex offender and lied to us about his conviction. CPS has been called on them several times and nothing has been done. They were evicted from their house and stepdaughter and brother were sent to mother's friends house. We had no idea where stepdaughter was until January. Hubby threatened custody and stepdaughter came to live with us.
Now, in Ausgust, my stepdaughter's mother up and moved with my stepdaughter to another county, turned cell phones off, no forwarding address, blocked us all from Facebook and we have no idea what her address is. We have heard that she is living with a friend of the mother who knows that my husband has joint managing conservatorship. She has been gone since August after living with us from January - August because her mother had no place to live, yet again. Can we get her on parental kidnapping? Also, we would like to press charges against her friend for aiding in this scheme. This has happened on and off for the past 12 years but we had always ended up with her back at our home. She is 13 now and would rather stay with mother's friend because she has no rules there. We do not have money for an attorney and I have called around our area to see if there are any attorney's willing to work payment plans and I have yet to find one. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
