i was just curious because my husband has 5050 of his to girls and we herd their mother was talking about the girls choosing at a certain age.
There is no set legal age where the girls can choose. However, and the children get older, their opinion, provided it is well-reasoned, holds more weight with the Court.See question
I filed all the paperwork for a no-fault, uncontested divorce and my ex complied. However, now we are worried that it might be denied because some of the dates might disagree on the forms. He submitted and signed all of the forms, but didn't put d...
Divorces cannot be granted until 90 days after service of the Divorce Complaint. So yes, the date can affect things, especially if you attempted to file the Waiver and Affidavit too soon after the date of service listed.See question
I have shared custody of my 7 yr old daughter. Don't know that I can afford a two bed room.
There's nothing illegal about it. However, if father wishes to challenge the shared custody order, he could try and make an issue out of it. If he tries to modify custody based upon this, I would seek legal representation.See question
My daugther was with her father for the weekend and his dog bit her. She had to go to the ER and a plastic surgeon stich her forehead. I have medical bills that he stated he's not paying, since he pays child support.
Medical bills should have been covered in your support order. I would suggest you call Domestic Relations in your county and ask them how you can officially submit them. Keep after Domestic Relations - they can charge him with contempt and make him pay these bills, so long as there is a provision in your order for it, which there usually is. If there's not, you may want to consider modifying the support order. Another route would be to modify custody to get him to pay, since it's his fault. i would suggest you speak with a qualified attorney to choose the best option.See question

I believe the Violence against Women Act prevents these types of evictions. I would contact your local legal aid office, as they handle eviction appeals. By the way, is your landlord only trying to evict you, or is section 8 trying to get rid of your voucher?See question

It has been on a few occasions that Father has been visibly high when meeting to pick up or drop off our son. From our past and first appearance in court (with failed drug test) it is evident that he has continuing marijuana abuse issues.
I would consult an attorney about this situation. There are a variety of options, such as calling the police and having the police examine him before handing over your child, petitioning the court for random drug tests, taking a witness with you to exchanges, etc. You should fully discuss your situation with an attorney to see which option is best for you, given all the facts of your particular case.See question
