    Contact an attorney AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!! Plain and simple. If your son is in immediate danger, you might be advised to file an Emergency Petition. If it's a matter that needs to be addressed as soon as possible, but isn't technically an "emergency", you can file for an expedited hearing. An Expedited hearing is a hearing to determine if you should get an earlier court date. Be aware that at the Master's hearing, the Master does not have the authority to unilaterally give you physical or...

    I agree with Michelle here! If there's an outstanding PFA, ANY contact, not through an attorney, or allowed by Court is a violation. The person violating the PFA could be sent to prison and/or forced to pay a fine for such violations. Contact a local attorney for more information. (also, be aware that in PA, a person is not allowed to record a conversation unless it is disclosed to and agreed to by the other party, so that, in and of itself is a crime!)

    The answer to your question depends on what you're asking. If you are asking whether the child may be taken out of the US for vacation, the simple answer is "it depends." Jamaica is not a member to the Hague Convention and therefore, does not have to respond to the US if there is an issue with child abduction. This is a very tricky area as Courts do not want to put their constituents in a position that could result in an abduction. I recommend that you speak with and hire an attorney here...

  6. I live in PA and have a child with my exhusband. We have no written arrangement for custody or visitation, can I move?

    As Attorney Kalinoski stated, you should file a Complaint for Primary Custody and follow the law regarding relocation. If your ex husband agrees to the custody order and relocation, an Order can be entered by agreement. However, if he decides to fight the relocation, you will be required to attend a hearing and present your position before a Judge. Feel free to contact me at 267-882-2734 and I can answer any other question that you may have in regards to your matter.

    I agree that there isn't enough information. However, it sounds as though there is now car insurance on your boyfriend's brother's car while the car is located in New York. If your boyfriend's brother lives in NY and the car is insured as per Lebanon rates, then your boyfriend and brother are committing insurance fraud. You must contact your insurance carrier and advise that this car is located where it is located. Please note that since you have notice about this, you may be liable for...

    It depends on where you moved! Although the Order is controlling as to what needs to be given to your ex, 23 PA. C.S.A. Sec. 5337 requires that prior to moving out of the current court's jurisdiction, all interested parties and the court must be notified accordingly. If you wish for your address to remain confidential, you'll have to advise the Court as such. Please contact a lawyer who works in Chester County (Pottstown) to further review the Order and provide you with further guidance.

    I'm going to have to agree with Attorney Costopoulos. It really all depends on when you were last being raised by your brother's father. He may or may not have standing (aka the right) to file a petition for custody. If he does have standing, he may petition the Court for primary custody. Also, as Attorney Costopoulos stated, the alternative is to file for emancipation (basically asking the Court to declare you competent and able to make decisions on your own and support yourself)....

    Unfortunately, yes, you can be fired for this or for even wearing an orange shirt to work if you are employed in Pennsylvania. Since Pennsylvania is an "at will" state, employers have the right to fire you for anything at all (other than race, gender, age, etc).
