My question involves divorce in the State of:Texas
Hi, I got married back home(pak) in 1996 and after few months we got separation for like few years, we have a one daughter during that time and than later on in 2003 she filled the divorce back home in Pakistan court, I was getting hearing notice from pakistan court but didnt make it to the court so court made the one side decision and she got the Kullah(divorce) from the court, after that I was calling my daughter on & and off and my daughter she always try to convinece me if we could live togather and mom she is changed now etc. so we start talking and I applied for immigrant visa for them & finally they got here on immigrant visa in USA in Aug.08 & again didnt last very long & got divorce in Aug.09, we were working on the settlement agreement & came up with that i am gonna pay her a $1000 a month for 12 months & after that i will pay only child support according to Texas Law based on income, we made the agreement letter with one witness from her side and one from my side and one neutral person(judge), before we all signed the agreement paper I gave $1000 to neutral(judge), and he gave me a receipt too, now she dont wanna signed the paper and she took some money when she were leaving from my apartment and now she filled the divorce in the court, constable brought divorce paper at my work but i wasnt there so he left his and I called him he said he got divorce paper.
Now my question is should i take the divorce paper or hire the lawyer? by the way I have a small business under my name and a personal account, I transfered most money to my friends account, i got no property etc. If something worst happen, Do they check the all account histry and will they able to take money from my friends account ?
There is one more thing i would like to tell is all the marriage and divorce took place back home in pakistan so far, our marriage never been register in USA except when i applied for immigrant vise for them, I submitted my pakistan mirriage certificate.
