  1. 16yr old missing prescribed medications during weekend visitation w/ father constantly happening, what can I do?

    This is a complicated question. Child medications are difficult to monitor and enforce. First, document what you've done to get your spouse to comply with the doctor's orders. If you have exhausted all you know to do (within reason), go to Court and request a Guardian Ad Litem be appointed, and the Court to order medication compliance. If that does not work, I recommend getting an attorney.

    Yes, you can apply for public assistance. If you used a Combined Application Form, you can apply for cash MFIP assistance, medical assistance, and food stamps. You may also be eligible for emergency assistance. Home ownership does not preclude families from receiving needed assistance in Minnesota.

    Your child is in your sole legal and physical custody until such time as paternity is adjudicated or a ROP is signed. At that time, he may petition for custody and parenting time. When paternity is adjudicated by court or established by ROP, the child support obligation may be established.

    I recommend you talk to a personal injury attorney who has experience helping victims of sexual assault. I cannot give you the odds of your recovery, which often depends on the financial solvency of the individual you have sued. You should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney before more time lapses, as claims can become barred by too long of passage of time. In addition to your pursuit in Court, I recommend contacting the Ramsey County Sexual Offense Services for crisis help,...

    Whether you can bring a motion to modify child support depends not only on time, but what factors have changed that warrant a modification.

    If the children were born during the marriage, neither party has a greater right to make visitation decisions than the other, from a legal perspective. Practically, this is more complicated. You should consult an attorney before an emotionally difficult or unsustainable routine is established.

    Minnesota's Maltreatment of Minors Act (Minnesota Statute 626.556) requires you to report physical abuse, which is defined in the statute in Subdivision 2, Section (g). I encourage you to review the statute, and here is the link. Your duty under the statute is clear, if you suspect physical abuse has occurred, you must report it. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=626.556

    You should contact your victim's advocate at the prosecutor's office to get the process started to amend the No Contact Order to reflect the boundaries in which you feel safe.
