State - Texas
County - Dallas
Father, Petitioner, 5/2/5/2 custody.
I don't know how much info you need.
I have 2 children (boy = 13, girl = 9) with my ex, and 1 boy (10 months) with my new wife.
My son (13) wants to live with me full time. I have asked the ex to let him, but she will not fearing that I will lower the child support. I have been told that it's a simple "go before the judge and let your child state where he wants to live" procedure. She will obviously fight me with an attorney.
1. Is it as simple as asking the judge to let my son live with me full time?
2. Does my son really have to go before the Judge?
3. Can this be done with out an attorney?
Thank you so very much for your help!!!What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
