    The police may not want to get involved. You can try calling them but don't be surprised if they tell you to go to court. If you go to pick him up the Father may refuse to let you take him. Your best bet is to wait until courts open and go to court to get an emergency order. The order may instruct the police to accompany you to ensure the child is turned over without breaching the peace.

    Alan’s Answer

    Unless the existing court orders require snow clothing be exchanged there is no obligation for her to send snow pants, etc. It is cheaper for you to buy another set than to fight over the issue.

  • Can I move to PA to be with the father of our unborn child? How likely is it that they will make me stay in Mass?

    I am divorced and my ex husband and I have one child together. I am currently pregnant with my boyfriends child and he lives in PA, which is also the state where the baby was conceived.

    Alan’s Answer

    You can live anywhere you want. However, if you have custody of children from your prior marriage, you need permission of your ex-husband or a judge if you want to move the children out of Massachusetts. Merely to be with the father of your new child is probably not a sufficient reason. However, you should consult an attorney to determine the your rights based on a full discussion of the facts.

    I would like to change my married name ..because my. Husband has moved on and i no longer want his name ..can i change my name now. ..

    Alan’s Answer

    You have a common law right to change your name at any time as long as you don't do it for fraudulent purposes. Just as you changed your name when you got married without a court order you can do it again. All you have to do is to start using the new name consistently. You need to change your license, your credit cards, bank records and everything else.

    Alan’s Answer

    Your question does not indicate if the estate has been filed in Probate Court. If it has you should convert to a formal probate (if it has not already been done) and file to remove your sister as personal representative. If it has not been filed then you should file a formal probate. In either case you should hire an attorney to represent you in this area.

    Alan’s Answer

    It sounds like there is a good faith basis for a restraining order. You should go to the local court and apply for a restraining order.
