    LE or PI help

    My daughter's is a single mom raising an autistic boy on an office clerks salary in Texarkana. Her ex husband has been paying minimal child support based on his wages from 5 years ago. For the last couple of years he's been working as an electrical contractor in Iraq is likely making 5 times what he had previously made. Daughter is attempting to bring this back to court for a support adjustment but nobody can find him to serve papers. I believe he got his job through Lear Siegler/Red River Army Depot. Questions:
    Can he be served even if he's out of the country?
    Is there a way to locate him?
    Can customs flag his passport so we know when he's back in the country?

    Sorry if this isn't the place to post this but I'm running out of fatherly advice to pass on to my daughter.
    To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.

    Here are some resources for Texas, assuming she lives in Texas and it was a Texas divorce:

    Good luck. Nothing makes me go ballistic like a worthless scumbag egg-sucking panty-waisted girly-man boy child trying to skip on his moral and financial obligations to children.

    You are so right.

    Hopefully MitchellCT might know some cursory inklings with child custody/divorce.

    Man, that sucks, but is all too prevalent these days.

    If you ain't got ot, you ain't got it.
    Chump coulda sent your daughter a note and some money saying he would pay $2-300 extra a month while he's over there. That , just might have called off the dogs completely.
    What an irresponsible ignoramous.

    I pray to the Lord my daughters never bring one of these idiots home.

    This might be of help: http://www.supreme.courts.state.tx.u...cp/rcp_all.pdf

    In particular, Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, rules 106, 107, 108a, and 109.

    I'd suggest contacting the office there in Texas that oversees the support payments. They are usually pretty helpful on this sort of thing, and can at the very least point her to an attorney who can assist her. It seems to me that given the circumstances one of the allowed forms of alternative service might apply, removing the need to track him down in Iraq.

    Good luck, and go get him.

    Not sticking up for the guy, but if he is meeting his court ordered requirements, it may be difficult to get the court system to help.

    It may be possible for her to proceed without his being served. She may be able to post legal notices in newspapers, informing him of the actions, and if after a certain time period he has not responded, proceed from there. Unfortunately in that case, although she might get an increase in support, collecting could be very difficult.
