    I agree with my colleagues. You are in a stronger position as a result of your being the primary residential parent. Unless you are unable to hold down a job for reasons such as alcoholism or drug addiction, the fact that you are unemployed is not tied to the best interest of the children in terms of parenting time. You very much need an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney or can't get help from your family to hire one, call the law schools to see if they will take your case through...

    I agree with David that you need to talk to an attorney. You need to file a Paternity or Allocation of Parental Responsibility case so that your rights to see your daughter are court ordered. If you can't afford an attorney, there are forms available on line. It is best to have an attorney but if you can't afford one, initiate an action pro se without an attorney right away.

    Your questions are very in depth and difficult to answer without being able to review your file. Generally, if you are not represented by an attorney, you will have to go to a Permanent Orders hearing. If the other party doesn't show up then the Court may enter orders by default. You could simply ask the Court to set a Permanent Orders hearing if you have completed all of the things that you are required to do. Parties that want to appear by phone have to file a Motion with the Court. The...

    It depends on the purpose of the settlement. For example, if it is for the replacement of past wages or pain and suffering, it could be viewed as marital. If it is comensation for future wages which will be lost, it would not likely be viewed as marital. The way the settlement agreement is drafted (and how the funds broken down in that agreement) is very important in terms of how much the Court will consider the settlement proceeds to be "marital" and therefore subject to division equitably....

  5. Can I file contempt for first right of refusal?

    You can file a contempt motion but you may have a problem proving your case because a child's out of court statements are, with a few exceptions, inadmissible. Contempt actions are not very easy to maneuver through the legal system an I recommend that you hire a lawyer to assist you. It may be possible that there are other solutions to consider.

    I am not a California attorney so I can't answer your question with respect to the CA DV TRO. The issue is going to come down to which state has home state jurisdiction. In Colorado, that is typically defined as wherever the children have resided for the past six months. Where there is a challenge to jurisdiction, the judges in the two states typically have a telephone conference (which under Colorado law you are entitled to attend). Whether or not the Colorado Court recognizes or enforces...

    For the child support, you could file a contempt. You could also reduce the amount owed to judgment and add 12 percent interest compounded monthly which really adds up. Once you have a judgment, which is immediate once you file it (it is called a "Verified Entry of Support Judgment") you can record a lien on any real estate.

    I agree with David Littman that the answer depends on whether your grandparents have custody of you or not. If they don't, you could return to your parent or parents' home. If they do have custody of you then they are obligated to provide you with a place to live. They might call the police and report you as a missing child. Whether the police would force you to return to their home is an unknown considering your age. Police departments and their policies vary from county to county and...

    Your mom, as the owner of the home, (and in the absence of a lease) likely has the ability to require him to leave. However, if you have children, always speak to an attorney when kicking out the other spouse to determine if there would be any implications to child custody issues (aka whether the Court would look poorly upon you for any actions you take). In response to your question, though, your mother does have the ability to make anyone leave her home if there is no lease. If necessary,...

  10. Can a caseworker make me tell my daughter about my occasional use of drugs? Thats not why they got involved .

    Although you may disagree with the caseworker, the problem is that if you don't follow the recommendations of the caseworker, it will likely be reported to the Court at the next review hearing. You (or your attorney if you have one) could make the argument that such a recommendations would not be in the best interest of your child. However, you do run the risk of the Court disagreeing with you and of course, getting on the bad side of the caseworker which could have worse ramifications for...
