  • Do you have to let your sick child go for visitation?

    My child has fever, cough, runny nose. Do I have to let him go for weekend visitation? They smoke around him and I always have to take him to the DR when he comes back home.

    Brian’s Answer

    You need to abide by the court order. You can be polite and let the other parent know that the child is ill and let them decide of they want the child to come over for the agreed upon visitation.

  • I am 17. 4 months I will turn 18. My mother has full custody over me but I want to move in with my father. Is it possible?

    I'm under stress and I don't want to live with my mother.

    Brian’s Answer

    Your father would have to petition the court for a change in the custody/visitation order. It isn't likely that he would get this process completed and get before a judge in the next 4 months.

    Perhaps sit down with your parents and explain your feelings?

  • One parent lives in Kansas and the other in Arkansas we have coustudy of 2 and want the other 2 what state do we need an lawyer

    this is still on how or where do i need to get an attorney to go after coustudy of my grandaughters we live in Oklahoma and have the 2 youngest

    Brian’s Answer

    You need to file an action in Kansas, assuming the children have lived there for the previous 6 months. Use the "Find a Lawyer" tab on Avvo to search for an attorney in Kansas (preferably in the county where the children live), and schedule a phone consultation to discuss the case.

    Good luck.

    I'm filling for a divorce and my wife is in New York and I'm in Hawaii. If i get an index number here on Maui will it be good for the state of New York.

    Brian’s Answer

    As long as you are a resident of Hawaii (as in, you meet the state's residency requirements), you can file in Hawaii and have your wife served in NY. She will then either proceed on her own without representation, or have to retain a lawyer licensed to practice in Hawaii.

    Good luck.

  • In looking for a divorce lawyer does my lawyer need to practice law in Granville County?

    I am currently in an emotional/mentally abusive marriage. I have been married for 23 years. I have a 22 year old daughter who lives at home with us. I am ready to get out of this situation. My daughter will leave with me. I believe he could get v...

    Brian’s Answer

    You will have to file in whichever county you are a resident of, but your attorney doesn't necessarily have to have an office in that county. However, it makes more sense for your lawyer to actually be in the same county as the case.

    Please seek help immediately.

    Brian’s Answer

    Your friend really needs to address this issue with his attorney. Sounds like the ex is just trying to stir the pot.

    Brian’s Answer

    Two siblings of opposite genders sharing a bedroom is not problematic, and not against the law. It may be awkward as they get older, though.

    Brian’s Answer

    Unfortunately, you must either have his permission or permission from the court before you relocate. Speak to an attorney about filing a petition for relocation.

    Brian’s Answer

    Your case appears to be pretty straight forward, so it is possible to proceed without an attorney. It is recommended that speak with a local family law attorney before filing, just to make sure you know what you're doing. Use the "Find a Lawyer" section of Avvo.
