  • If we have joint legal and physical custody can I keep the kids from mom if she is not stable does not have house or any income

    Also drinks all the time and her and he boyfriend live with his parents due to being kicked oug of the place they was at for being racist

    Daniel’s Answer

    If you already have a court order for joint custody, you are not allowed to unilaterally change its terms. If you feel that your children are in danger, you need to schedule a consultation with a lawyer to discuss your options immediately.

  • Martial settlement agreement states the father will be responsible for all daycare cost should'nt he have to continue to pay?

    Its stated within our settlement agreement that father is responsible for all daycare costs for minor children. Our daughter turned 11 in feb 2013 and now my ex-husband feels she can watch herself during the day while we are at work this summer....

    Daniel’s Answer

    Unless there is some provision in the settlement agreement that provides for him to pay only in his discretion, which I doubt, then he is probably still required to pay. I would have to see the entire agreement to be more certain, however.

    If he refuses to pay without cause, then you may have some options (contempt, etc.).

    Daniel’s Answer

    You will have to file for divorce and get a family access order, or at least a minimum contact order. You need to figure out how to get an attorney hired if she is unwilling to work with you.

  • Alimony

    have been divorced for 8 years and get 200.00 dollars a week in alimony my ex-husband wants to move in with me if he does will he still have to pay me alimony?

    Daniel’s Answer

    He will have to pay until a court orders otherwise, unless the obligation automatically expires at some point. The fact that he lives with you would be a factor for the court to consider, but the order itself has to be modified by the court.

    Daniel’s Answer

    You simply need to hire an attorney. It sounds as though you will need to secure court permission to make the move and you don't need to be doing that on your own.

  • MY EX WIFE WANTS TO MOVE OUT OF STATE WITH OUR SON AND IT WILL INTERFERE WITH MY VISITS SHE SENT ME A CERTIFIED LETTER INFORMIN

    we have joint custody and she has moved him all over missouri in the past year at least to 3 different counties not once did she inform me of these moves till after the fact and i cant afford an attorney after i pay my bill, child support, and ins...

    Daniel’s Answer

    Under Missouri law, you only have a certain amount of time to make known your objection to her relocation. Once that time passes, she is legally allowed to make the move, at which point you will be at a significant disadvantage trying to secure your child's return. The fact that she has already moved three times without notifying you is grounds for modifying whatever custody order currently controls. You need an attorney ASAP.

  • Will this affect my drug charges in any way.

    Originally I was pulled over for speeding. I ran from the police which got me a misd charge. Also the cop said I pushed him which also got me a 3rd degree, misd assault. In the chase they said they found some coke....not true but due to the amount...

    Daniel’s Answer

    A class B felony carries a range of punishment in Missouri of 5 to 15 years in prison. The other charges are relatively insignificant. The fact that the speeding charge was amended is highly unlikely to make any difference with the drug charges. This is serious stuff, and you need to get an attorney hired yesterday.

  • In Missouri is no contact by the father considered abandonment, and can that be used in trying to get sole custody?

    My children haven't had any contact from their father in over a year. He was upset that I filed childsupport after 10 years of not filing and said I have choosen money over him being in their lives. He was abusive emotionally and physically to the...

    Daniel’s Answer

    The short answer to your question is that sole custody is certainly a possibility given the facts you have described. No, you don't want to try to litigate a custody matter without an attorney - you will almost certainly find yourself at a disadvantage. Finally, you will have a parenting plan regardless of the final custody arrangement, but that may be to your benefit in the long run, because it will help avoid any of the "crazy stunts" you're worried about. Please consult an attorney as soon as possible.

  • I have a child with a married man can the wife demand a DNA test or only him?

    hes going threw the divorce and i have given birth and shes saying she can demand a DNA test for the baby. can she or only if he agrees?

    Daniel’s Answer

    Neither you nor your child is a legal party to the divorce action, so I'm not aware of anything that she can force you to do.

  • Can my kids be held from me after my case was droped

    after i did all they asked me

    Daniel’s Answer

    You haven't provided nearly enough information for anyone to answer this question. Moreover, you probably shouldn't. If "your case" was a criminal case, you should post no further information about it. You should seek a consultation with a family attorney in your geographical area to maintain confidentiality. Good luck.
