Divorce in Texas, come see us

The Baez Law Firm, P.C. has been helping people in Texas with their legal problems for years. During that time, we noticed that not every one can pay for legal representation. We have sent our clients that are having to face uncontested divorces and do not have money to a site which we think can help them. The site is called Cheap Texas Divorce.

When you are facing a divorce, there are many factors to be considered, specially if children are involved. Let our attorneys help you during this difficult time. Remember that you are divorcing your spouse and not your children. We say this because many parents are not aware that the children of divorce families suffer tremendously.

In Texas, the law allows individuals to obtain a divorce for almost any reason. Since Texas is a no-fault divorce state, that means that it is almost impossible to stop a spouse from obtaining a divorce. Many people are unaware of this fact. That is one of the reasons Texas has such a high rate of divorce.

One area of concern during divorce proceedings is child support. Fortunately, this is established by statute in Texas. That means that, your spouse will pay you based on his earnings and based on how many children of the marriage are there. In many cases, the spouse qualifies for spousal maintenance, since Texas does not have alimony.

If you are facing a divorce, you need attorneys that will fight for your rights. Come and see us,and you will know the difference from the moment that you walk through our doors, your initial consultation is free. Let our lawyers help you with your divorce.

Has your Humana Insurance Company denied you of coverage just because?

July 30, 2009 was a happy day for our family. Our new baby girl arrived. And although we have major medical insurance, Humana One denied our maternity coverage, causing us to pay out of pocket.

Being responsible parents, we decided to inform the insurance company that our baby was on the way, four weeks before the baby was born. We asked them if the baby would be covered, and we were told "once the baby is born, the coverage begins," but we had to call them on the day of the delivery, which we did. We did everything Humana One asked of us to do, so we believed our baby was supposed to be covered. The reality is, this is not what happened at all. Humana One denied the baby's coverage for some bogus, illegitimate reasons, and all to save a dollar. They said that "Texas law does not specifically dictate that we cover a baby once the baby is born, so we are not going to cover the baby." Huh?

As a personal injury attorney, I am aware of the techniques used by insurance companies to increase their bottom line; however, this time, Humana One was wrong. There is nothing on our insurance coverage that indicates that "a new born baby is not required to be covered by Texas laws." That is what Humana One is saying now.
Even though my wife and I did what was required of us by informing the insurance company of the new baby and even though we are paying the new premiums for including our new baby in our policy, Humana One says that "they are not required to pay for the baby stay at the hospital."

THIS BLOG IS TO INFORM THE PUBLIC THAT OUR FIRM WILL BE FILING A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST HUMANA ONE HEALTHCARE BASED ON TEXAS INSURANCE CODE VIOLATIONS BY HUMANA ONE.

If you have been denied coverage, and it is not expressively written on the policy, but just as an explanation given to you by one of the insurance representatives, you may have a cause of action against your insurance.

This practice is referred as Unfair Insurance Practice created by Insurance Corporations to increase their bottom line while depriving you of basic coverage. This practice must stop, and we will see to it.

Again, if you have been denied coverage by Humana One Healthcare insurance, and they have not provided you a disclaimer in the policy but just as a proviso by one of their representatives, you may have a cause of action against them. Give us a call (210) 979-9777 or visit our website www.thebaezlawfirmcom.com

Six flags bankruptcy filing

Associated Press- The amusement park company Six Flags is seeking Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, saying it needs to reorganize and shed $1.8 billion of debt.

Mark Shapiro, the New York-based company's chief executive officer, says the move won't affect the operation of its 20 theme parks in the U.S., Mexico and Canada... including Six Flags Over Georgia.

Six Flags says it actually had a great year in 2008. It saw 25 million visitors and posted record revenues. But executives are trying to lighten a $2.4 billion debt load that they say is unsustainable.

Saturday's bankruptcy filing came after an earlier plan to negotiate an out-of-court deal with creditors failed. According to sources, Six Flags shares have traded below $1 since September. They closed at 26 cents on Friday.

The economy is forcing major companies to seek bankruptcy protection. If you are facing financial difficulties, you too can seek the same protection. The Báez Law Firm, P.C. can help you file for bankruptcy to help you deal with your financial situation.

Had a DWI this weekend?

This weekend, we have been contacted by people who have been arrested since the implementation by the District's Attorneys Office of the policy of blood drawing in you refuse to blow. This is a common phenomena, but we believe that Bexar County DA has taking it to the next level.

As Americans, we have been given many constitutional rights, including the right to privacy, and it is our believe that, every time blood is drawn without consent, our constitutional rights are usurped.

On their website, the Bexar County DWI Task Force placed this info "Peace Officers from across Bexar County are trained and ready for the D.A.'s Office to launch 24hrs of blood draws for those who refuse to provide officers with a breath sample."

As we translate it, they are ready to violate our rights but because they will have the back up of the DA's office, its ok. WOW! Although we do not advocate drinking and driving, we are concerned about people's rights. In other words, if a person has not had any alcohol during the day, refuses to blow for whatever reason, that person would be arrested, have a charge pending, spend thousands on attorneys fees for just saying NO to the sometimes unreliable breathalyzer.

We have defended many people in that scenario and have challenged the bogus science that the breathalyzer brings to the DWI arena, and now, we are ready to challenge the unconstitutionality of the DA's practice.

If you feel that your rights have been violated, contact us.

The Baez Law Firm, P.C. is a general practice law firm that is ready to help you during difficult times. We handle bankruptcy, criminal law, personal injury, family law, business law, consumer law, litigation, and appeals.

Fiesta starts and the DA will make you give blood

Today, the Fiesta tradition starts for San Antonians. The only difference is that, if you get pulled over for a DWI, and you refuse to give a breath sample, you will automatically go to jail to have your blood drawn by a nurse. WOW!!!

Although we believe that this practice is a violation of the constitutional rights of those involved, we highly recommend that if you drink, do not drive. On the other hand, if you get pulled over and arrested, and blood is drawn from you, call our law firm, we can help.

The Baez Law Firm, P.C. is a general practice law firm in San Antonio that handles criminal law, family law, personal injury, consumer law, business law, bankruptcy, appeals and many more areas of law.

The DA will do it again

Although the legislature will not pass the random sobriety check points, Bexar County District Attorney will most likely have another mandatory breath or blood test. If you refuse to blow, you will be required to give blood.

Our previous blog covered the unconstitutionality of this practice; however, the District's Attorney is finding a way to get around that, or so they think. They issued warrants for blood test and assume that it is constitutional.

As we explained on our earlier blog, this practice is not constitutional, it just has not been challenged in court, therefore the DA continues to do it.

The Baez Law Firm, P.C. is dedicated to defend those who have been wrongfully accused of crimes. We would love to challenge the constitutionality of such practice in Bexar county to submit people, without their consent, to blood drawings.

If you have been asked to submit to a blood drawn, without your consent, contact us.

Your personal injury case

For years, insurance companies have employed tactics to minimize claims against their insurers. This is done in an effort to keep their bottom line healthy. As a victim of a personal injury case, you have to keep in mind that the insurance company is not there to make you whole again, they are there to protect their stockholders.

Our law firm has been dealing with these insurance companies and we know how to protect our clients. One of the tactics that the insurance companies use is a program called "Colossus" which tell the insurance adjusters the amount of money to be offered for a particular injury.

The program goes through some scenarios and spits out a maximum amount of money to be offered for a particular claim. For the most part, if the injury is one that only soft tissue is involved, you would not expect more than twice the medicals, assuming that the property damage is greater than $1,000.

How can a regular person compete with such technology? The answer is very clear. You need our law firm on your side. Insurance companies spend millions on legal teams, you too should have your own legal team. Contact us today!

What is a Plea to the Jurisdiction

The Baez Law Firm, P.C. has helped many foreigners in their fights against improper adjudication or rights without power to do so by the courts. Here is a review on what to expect if you believe that the court has no power over your case.

In Texas, there is no "motion to dismiss" encompassed in the Rules of Civil Procedure, although many courts and litigants act as if there was. To attack the lack of subject matter jurisdiction, the proper pleading is a plea to the jurisdiction.

Since a court has no power over a controversy without subject matter jurisdiction, the lack thereof can be raised at any time by parties or by the court. The court, has to dismiss the case because it has no power to do anything else. Subject matter jurisdiction cannot be waived.

Subject matter jurisdiction is not limited to issues concerning the type of case or the amount in controversy, it also deals with when plaintiff lacks standing, the suit is not ripe for determination and when the defendants are immune to suit.

If you believe that your case was improperly handled by the court, or if you have an upcoming case and have questions about jurisdiction, please contact our law firm. We are a general practice law firm that handles, personal injury, family law, business law, criminal law, consumer law, appeals, bankruptcy, litigation and many more.

Family Issues and hard economic times

As our country endures the recession, many couples are suffering from the effects of improper financial planning and the inability to cope with stress, which leads to tensions in the marriage and many times divorce. Although our firm provides services for couples that are seeking divorce, we believe that parent have to always look at the impact that their actions would have on their children.

For the most part, the parents that come to us for dissolution of marriage, have almost always forgotten about what their actions would have on the children of the marriage. They focus on the personal problems and not on the family ones. Our society has blinded us to believe that it is best to take care of our own personal needs, rather than our family ones. This is one of the reasons for infidelity in the marriage.

The man does not feel respected by the wife, because she is always nagging, and so he goes into the slippery road that leads to infidelity. The woman that does not feel loved by the husband, because he is not listening, and so she lets another gentler, loving person in her life by telling him her problems and before she knows it, she is doomed. All the while, the children believe that “their parents” are perfect that they love each other and that they love them; when in reality the parents are been selfish.

This phenomena is aggravated by our financial situation since money is the root of all evils. When couples do not have a plan or are capable of handling stress as a couple, they resolute to the simplest, most convenient way (or so they think), of resolving the problem between them, they opt to get a divorce. Not once do they stop to think that their decision is going to affect their children for the rest of their lives.

The children now start to act out once they find out that mommy and daddy are not going to be together anymore. Many children cannot cope and it reflects in school with their behavior. Meanwhile, in Texas, many courts require counseling for the families; however, the devastation that divorce creates on the children will last a life time. And this could all be prevented, if either of the parents would seek help or talk to each other about their problems.

We see many couples that have resolute to allow help in their marriage and it has work. One of the best ways to do this is to allow God to intervene with the situation and things can change for the best. Many couples allow God to be the center of attention in their lives, which in term minimizes the financial chaos that surrounds them, and so they focus more on the families than on their separate needs. If you are thinking about divorce, we urge you to let HIM get involved in your life, and let HIM handle the problem for you.

On the other hand, there are secular ways in which to resolve the problems facing our families in this tough economy. One of them is by providing ways to earn extra income for the family. We see that many couples problems become lesser when they have ways to secure the families financial future. When families work together, they stick together. And when they enjoy their success together, it last longer.

We urge families facing with divorce to take a different approach to the trend that has paralyze the strong family bond that we once had. Do not let finances ruin your family’s life.

Please blow, don’t say "No” or you will be required to give blood

Many people in bexar county and the city of San Antonio have contacted our law firm because they have been unreasonably and against their reasonable expectation of privacy commandeer to submit to blood test by the Police.

The following information was taken from DA Susan Reed's website: "San Antonio, Texas: For New Year’s Eve, District Attorney Susan Reed is cracking down on drunk drivers. “If you are arrested for a DWI and you say no to the blow, then the police will obtain a search warrant to draw your blood. So, when the officer says “Please blow,” don’t say “No” or you will be required to give blood,” is the District Attorney’s warning. The blood sample obtained by these warrants will be tested by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office to provide critical scientific evidence to secure a conviction against the Defendant. During this No Refusal Accepted evening, an Assistant District Attorney will be on duty at the San Antonio Magistrate’s Office and Detention Facility to assist with and review the blood search warrants that will then be presented to a magistrate. A Registered Nurse will also be on duty to draw the blood. The District Attorney’s Office has met with the various local law enforcement agencies that file DWI cases, trained them on the processes, and has secured their enthusiastic cooperation in this important project. This is the second time No Refusal Accepted has been implemented in Bexar County. Last Memorial Day, the District Attorney’s Office, working with the local police departments, the City of San Antonio Magistrate’s Office, and the Bexar County District Clerk’s Office began a trial run of the program. Approximately 77 people were arrested over the weekend and, of those, approximately 40 blood samples were obtained. The average blood alcohol content was a .16, twice the legal limit of .08. The highest blood test was a .35, more than four times the legal limit."

Some of the research conducted indicated that non-consensual extraction of blood implicates Fourth Amendment privacy rights. Skinner v. Railway Labor Executives' Ass'n, 489 U.S. 602, 16 ('89) ('this physical intrusion, penetrating beneath the skin, infringes [a reasonable] expectation of privacy'); Schmerber v. California, 384 U.S. 757, 67 ('66) (compulsory blood test 'plainly involves the broadly conceived reach of a search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment').' '[f]or the Fourth Amendment does not proscribe all searches and seizures, but only those that are unreasonable.' Skinner, 489 U.S. at 619; accord Vernonia School Dist. 47J v. Acton, No. 95-590, 1995 WL 373274, at *3 (June 26,'95) ('the ultimate measure of the constitutionality of a governmental search is `reasonableness''). A search's reasonableness under the Fourth Amendment generally depends on whether the search was made pursuant to a warrant issued upon probable cause. U.S. v. Place, 462 U.S. 696, 701 ('83).

The question now becomes, which one is greater, the privacy rights of the many citizens of bexar county against the capricious attempt to collect non-consensual blood examples vs. police officers already tainted probable cause to obtain the warrant to collect the blood?

We believe that the police went too far on this one, and perhaps we would be challenging any of the convictions given based on this unconstitutional practice to obtain blood.

If you have been arrested for a DWI, DUI in San Antonio, or in Texas, please contact our law firm, we can help. That is why we say, "we care about your legal needs."

Texas laws regarding divorce

Lately, people are contacting our law firm with some of the basic questions for a divorce. Here are some of the most common questions.

IS THERE A RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS AND WHERE DO I FILE?

YES. Either spouse must be a resident for at least six months and resided in the county where the petition is filed for at least 90 days. On the other hand, the divorce petition is filed with the District Court of the county where either party lives.

WHAT ARE THERE LEGAL GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE?

On the petition of either party to a marriage, the court may grant a divorce without regard to fault on the basis of irreconcilable differences. A divorce may also be granted on the following fault basis: (1) Cruelty, (2) Adultery, (3) Conviction of a felony, (4) Abandonment, (5) Confinement in a mental hospital, (6) Living apart without cohabitation for at least 3 years.

DOES TEXAS RECOGNIZE LEGAL SEPARATION?

NO. Texas has no specific provisions for a legal separation, but allows for temporary orders to be filed at the time the divorce is filed. In cases where the parties have filed for a divorce, the spouses may enter into a written agreement concerning the division of the property and the liabilities of the spouses and maintenance of either spouse.

HOW DOES PROPERTY DISTRIBUTION WORK?

Texas is a community property state. In a decree of divorce, the court shall order a division of the estate of the parties in a manner that the court deems just and right, having due regard for the rights of each party and any children of the marriage. Property that would be considered marital property (whether acquired in the state or not) is subject to division. Property that would be considered separate property (whether acquired in the state or not) is not subject to division.

Division of property in Texas

In Texas, the property and debt issues are typically settled between the parties by a signed Marital Settlement Agreement or the property award is actually order and decreed by the District Court within the Decree of Divorce.

The court shall order a division of the following real and personal property, wherever situated, in a manner that the court deems just and right, having due regard for the rights of each party and any children of the marriage:

1) property that was acquired by either spouse while domiciled in another state and that would have been community property if the spouse who acquired the property had been domiciled in this state at the time of the acquisition; or

(2) property that was acquired by either spouse in exchange for real or personal property and that would have been community property if the spouse who acquired the property so exchanged had been domiciled in this state at the time of its acquisition.

Since Texas is a "Community Property" state, all marital property will be divided in a 50-50 fashion according to the court unless agreed to otherwise by the divorcing spouses. Although this means that everything that is considered "up for grabs" in the divorce, and it will be distributed equally to each spouse, obviously this does not entail splitting a car in half so to speak, but rather each spouse will be rewarded with assets of equal value.

In relation to the debt, it can be used as a bargaining tool or it could be equally distributed to each party, regardless of who created the debt. This is a very common dilemma in almost every divorce case.

Hard economic times

In a week in which massive layoffs have taken place in some of America's biggest industries, three smaller signs of economic downturn: California's tax refunds are on hold, the Post Office is thinking of reducing delivery of mail by a day, and Starbucks is cutting back on decaf.

"This administration continues to strongly believe that a privately held banking system is the correct way to go, ensuring that they are regulated sufficiently by this government," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said when asked about nationalizing the banks.

If the economy is taking its toll on your finances, and credit card bill collectors are calling you, or if you are facing foreclosure, help is here for you. Under the laws of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA), creditors and independent collection agencies are under restrictions regarding their practices.

Why bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy has been around for over four hundred years. However, what we assume to be bankruptcy, the elimination of debts, is not what bankruptcy started out as or was intended to become.

Bankruptcy has evolved into the complex process that it is now, but still new provisions should protect consumers more. Widespread changes in consumer bankruptcy law took effect on October 17, 2005, with passage of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005.

Originally, in 1938, Congress overhauled the bankruptcy laws and created the Chapter 13 plan. Another major overhaul took place in 1978. One feature of the act was the hope that more people would use the Chapter 13 provisions and repay their creditors over a multi-year period. Congress did consider making Chapter 13 mandatory for all filers but later allowed it to be voluntary. In the end Congress simply weakened Chapter 13 protections and made Chapter 7, total discharge of debts, more attractive.

The latest changes to bankruptcy law may be making it harder for some people to file bankruptcy. And a few filers with higher incomes are no longer allowed to use Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but will instead have to repay at least some of their debt under Chapter 13. All debtors now have to get credit counseling before they can file a bankruptcy case -- and additional counseling on budgeting and debt management before their debts can be wiped out.

You need a law firm, capable of handling your case, no matter how complex it may be. We represent business and consumer alike, that are facing financial difficulties due to the economy. If you are facing foreclosure, repossession, or other embarrassing financial misfortune, bankruptcy can be for you.

How to handle your creditor's calls...

During trying economic times, companies and individuals can often find themselves with more debt than can be comfortably handled. Specially during this recession. Here are some tips on how to handle your creditors.

Don't take it personally. It will help you to remember that a collection call, no matter how unpleasant, is a business transaction. Not an assault on your personal character.

Remember that is a frequent practice for collectors to attempt to intimidate and scare you. Collectors are paid based upon what they collect. Keep all conversations to the point, professional, and focused on the debt; not irrelevant matters.

Federal law prohibits collection calls before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m. Nevertheless, many hard-hitting collectors would like to catch the debtor late in the day or early in the morning when they may be more susceptible to emotional pressure.

Let the answering machine work for you at those times. But, when you're ready, emotionally detached, and prepared to deal with it, return each and every call, even if it's just to say, "I have nothing today. " Not responding to phone calls will escalate your account through the collection process and the situation will quickly become out of control.

Remember your rights. In 1996, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted. It specifies that debt collectors cannot harass you. Specifically collectors cannot: call your office, call your home before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m., address you in an abusive manner or call family or friends in an attempt to collect the debt.

Get an attorney. If you have an attorney, the collector may not contact anyone other than your attorney. And that is a relieve for you!

Marital Law in Texas

Texas is a common law state when it comes to matrimonial law. This is called "common law marriage," or informal marriage. That means that, you could be considered married, even if you did not have a wedding with your significant other. As a result, many people could have special legal needs in order to solve their dissolution of marriage. The Baez Law Firm, P.C. has handle many common law marriages.

Texas continues to recognize the validity of informal marriages including unions that are entered into within its borders as well as those entered into in other states recognizing common law marriages. The law has long been that two people who wish to be married to do not need in have a ceremonial marriage.

In Texas, every marriage entered into in this state is presumed valid unless expressly made void by Chapter 6 of the Texas Family Code, a Suit For Dissolution of Marriage, or unless expressly made voidable by Chapter 6 and annulled.

When it comes to the dissolution of marriage, Texas also has special provisions that covers most aspects from the separation to the final divorce decree. For the most part, in order to get an equitable distribution of the assets from a matrimony, many divisional techniques must be employed. This is to distribute the community property.

To ensure that your dissolution of marriage is not affected by inadequate representation, contact our law firm to consult with one of our experienced attorneys. If you are in need of a divorce attorney, please contact us and we will help you with your case.

Do you know what bankruptcy is about?

The estate of our economy has change, once again, the way many people look at bankruptcy. To better understand the ramifications of bankruptcy, we need to first define and describe what bankruptcy is about.

According to the dictionary, bankruptcy is a legally declared inability or impairment of ability of an individual or organization to pay its creditors. Originally, bankruptcy was a way to show how bankers, which used benches or "bank" to exchange money, count money or pay bills. The word was combined to indicate that the banker was broken and out of business. Hence, bankruptcy was used to express a broken banker.

There are two ways in which a person may find themselves in bankruptcy. First, creditors may file a bankruptcy petition against a debtor ("involuntary bankruptcy") in an effort to recoup a portion of what they are owed or initiate a restructuring. Second, bankruptcy is initiated by the debtor (a "voluntary bankruptcy" that is filed by the bankrupt individual or organization).

If you would like more information about bankruptcy or would like to go forward with bankruptcy proceeding, please contact our law firm for a free initial consultation.

The Baez Law Firm and the economy

According to the experts, economy is the distribution of wealth in a society and the means by which that wealth is produced and consumed. A slumping economy and a slow markets are no longer a distant crisis for Americans, its a reality!

The nation's unemployment level climbed to 4.2 percent in January, the highest in 16 months, as the dramatic slowdown in economic growth forced thousands of layoffs in autos and other manufacturing industries.

If the motor companies file bankruptcy, the economy will be effected negatively. The expert economists says that the automakers will have to close their manufacturing units, and that will lead to job loses of thousands of workers and even the suppliers.

According to National Public Radio, two different trends are emerging when it comes to how companies are faring in the current economy. Banks, builders and airlines are getting clobbered by the credit crunch and soaring energy costs. But far flung companies from Boeing to McDonald's are doing well, thanks to growing exports.

Over the past few years, consumers have been the driving force of US economic growth. Now, with weakness in the housing market, higher energy prices, tightening credit conditions and general market uncertainty, consumer-led economic growth has slowed considerably.

The American Lawyer reports that some law firms, not ours thank God, are having a tough time recovering any money from the graveyard of busted 2008. The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers predicted a rise in divorces and domestic violence as a result of a worsening economy and a recession.

The economy and bankruptcy laws

The landscape has changed for those who are considering bankruptcy, even now with this ecomomic crisis that we are facing. In some cases, some filers with higher incomes won't be allowed to use Chapter 7, but will instead have to repay at least some of their debt under Chapter 13.

Now, all debtors will have to get credit counseling before they can file a bankruptcy case -- and additional counseling on budgeting and debt management before their debts can be wiped out. Under the old rules, most filers could choose the type of bankruptcy that seemed best for them -- and most chose Chapter 7 (liquidation) over Chapter 13 (repayment). The new law will prohibit some filers with higher incomes from using Chapter 7.

Under the new rules, the first step in figuring out whether you can file for Chapter 7 is to measure your "current monthly income" against the median income for a household of your size in your state. If your income is less than or equal to the median, you can file for Chapter 7. If it is more than the median, however, you must pass "the means test" -- another requirement of the new law -- in order to file for Chapter 7.

The purpose of the means test is to figure out whether you have enough disposable income, after subtracting certain allowed expenses and required debt payments, to make payments on a Chapter 13 plan. To find out whether you pass the means test, you subtract certain allowed expenses and debt payments from your current monthly income. If the income that's left over after these calculations is below a certain amount, you can file for Chapter 7.
