    I concur with Mr. Harkness and Mr. Littman. Sounds like an important matter since a GAL has been appointed. Best to know what your obligations and rights are before this hearing date. I would urge you to speak with an attorney.

    Your new roommate probably would be considered a month to month tenant on an oral lease. You should talk with an attorney to discuss proper eviction process.

    Most counties have resource centers for people without an attorney. In addition, if you contact the Court in your county, they probably can point you in the direction of any legal services that you may qualify for. There are resources here in the Denver Metro area, Metro Volunteer Lawyers - who also may be able to give you contact information for legal services in your area that are offered at a free or reduced rate. In addition, appeals are complicated and have very strict deadlines that...

    I concur with Mr. Littman. Moving without an agreement or Court order to do so, even if you move prior to any case being filed - would likley be problematic. This does not mean that a Court would not allow you to move after looking at what is best for your children and looking at all the facts. However, taking the children and leaving the state without these things would likely cause problems for you in a divorce case. Child custody matters are complicated and more than not require the...

    I agree with Mr. Littman. It does not sound like your living situation at home is meeting your needs. You should talk with your aunt or seek the help from other adults around you, such as teachers. It also sounds like your family as a whole may benefit from some assistance. Maybe your therapist can direct you to a person or place that can help you.

    It sounds like your goddaughter is involved in a dependency and neglect matter. These matters are very complicated and require the expertise of an experienced attorney. Given the complex nature of these cases, there is a lot of information that I would need in order to provide you with a thorough answer, which is difficult on this type of forum. You should contact an attorney in your area to discuss this matter in order to be informed about your rights and options.

    I agree with Mr. Littman. You have a very complicated and complex question that involves not only issues of family law, but immigration, and international law. It sounds like your divorce case is currently pending. If you are not represented by an attorney, I strongly urge you to seek the advice of counsel immediately. Divorce cases are complex in and of themselves, but you are adding a whole new level to the complication with the additional factors in your case. There are many good family...

    I agree with my colleagues. There are a lot of unanswered questions to the question that you pose. First, what state entered the original orders in your case? Second, where are the children currently residing and how long have they resided there? Third, if neither of you are in the state where the original orders came from, how long have you been in your respective locations. If, hypothetically, the original orders were entered in Colorado and the children are still residing in...
