    It sounds like your case was left incomplete and therefore was dismissed. If this is the case you will need to file again but if you have a full and complete agreement the process will be simplified. Meet with an attorney to start and complete the process.

    If the court is entertaining his motions and not reprimanding him for filing them, then it would appear that he can continue, if however the court is determining that he is being frivolous or vexatious then you have options.

    Your financial affidavits should be completely filled out. If your husband owns property you include it. If he doesn't own it then he does not need to list it.

    You say the sheriff won't help because you do not have a court order but you also cite an existing parenting schedule making your question unclear. Call me or another experienced attorney to discus what is really going on and give you legal advice. Best, April Jones

    It depends. Is the Dad a good father? Are he and the child bonded? Is it in the best interest of your child to have more parenting with Dad? On the other hand the fact that Dad has not paid child support could mean he is not fully committed to taking care of his child and perhaps you should consider going after back child support with interest! There are a lot of factors to discuss and examine but the court often expands to 50/50 where appropriate especially after 6 years. Call me or another...

    It depends. The answer to your question is more complex than a yes or no. The court will look at all of the factors that you have listed and more in determining a parenting plan that is in your children's best interest. Why did the court order you each have 1 child? How old is your youngest? How is he faring emotionally, physically, socially, academically... There are many areas to analyze here. Call me or another experienced attorney to discuss right away.

    What state are your court orders from, California or Colorado? If California, you will need to register your court orders here in Co and then file a motion to modify seeking sole decision making and limiting or extinguishing fathers parenting time depending on the facts of your case. In Co you will not be able to terminate his rights on the facts as stated. You can consider a step parent. Adoption if applicable under your facts.
