My nephew is 6 1/2 and my niece is 4. I have invested so much time and money in them the past 4 years just for their parents to throw it all away. I want to know legally if I can call them whenever and get pictures of them as well. I know this may...
A simple answer your question is that you are not the parent of these children, you have no rights. If you want to gain any rights, your will need to get a court order out of Ohio. To assess your chances of success based upon the facts you have provided, you need to talk to a family law attorney in that state. I have changes the practice area in your question to get it in front of the right type of lawyer.See question
Parents are, dad 93 and mom 87 would like to add my name to make it easier when they are gone/
I would add to the list of unintended consequences the possibility that by putting your name on the house, they are likely to be making a gift that will trigger a penalty should either or both of them need to enter a nursing home and make application for Medicaid at anytime during the next five years. Before acting, have your parents consult with an experienced elder law attorney.See question

I would caution against using online or canned documents. Since you do not appear to be an attorney, you may not recognize the important issues with which you are faced. Commercially available documents don't help you identify what you don't know. As a result of going the cheap route, people often find out when it is too late to do anything about it just how expensive a poorly thought out document can be.See question

A meaningful answer to your would require more information. Much depends upon how the transaction is handled. While I wouldn't expect the State to have filed a lien on your house (obviously you aren't dead yet) other consequences come into play. Selling your home would convert the value of the house in the form of the proceeds of the sale from an exempt resource to cash which is a countable resource on the first day of the month following the sale. That would disqualify you from SSI/Medicaid until you reconvert the cash into an exempt resource by purchasing a new residence. During the interim you would roll-off benefits. Careful planning and timing can minimize, reduce or eliminate that roll-off period, but you will need the help of an experienced elder law attorney.See question
I live in Wyoming and wanted to know if Wyoming recognizes a noterized document as a legal document for temporary guardianship? Also what if the person who would have temporary guardianship lives on another state such as Missouri, does Missouri r...
As Jacob indicates, a guardianship, whether limited, temporary, or permanent, can only be established by the District Court. A notarized document doesn't get you where you need to be. You need to hire an attorney to do what you are trying to accomplish.See question

The only way you will get a meaningful answer to your question is to make an appointment with an elder or medical law attorney. There are just too many variables to address in this type of forum. Use the AVVO Find a Lawyer search tool to locate a suitable attorney near you or go to the website of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys at www.naela.org. You should expect to have to pay for a consultation using some of the excess money in your checking account, but it will be worth it.See question
About a week ago I got a shoplifting ticket for $300. I was told it's not mandatory to go to court but I was given a court date. Would it be beneficial to go or just pay the ticket? Also is this going to go on my permanent record, can it be removed?
Yes, it will go on your record if you don't contest the ticket and just pay the fine. No you won't be able to have it removed without an attorney. There are a lot more facts that would be needed to give you a better answer. For now you should hire an attorney to represent you. If you can't afford one, then go to court and ask the judge to appoint one for you. Depending upon the circumstances and your prior record, it might be possible to get a deferment, but you will need a lawyer.See question
My boyfriend's 5 year old daughter has been living with us for a few weeks now, we have her enrolled in kindergarten (as per her mother's request) and just found out her mom is in jail (again). My boyfriend is not on the birth certificate, but the...
Your boyfriend will need to petition the court for appointment as guardian. The court may not grant it though unless he can establish he has priority and that the guardianship is in her best interests. Your statement that your boyfriend "is not on the birth certificate, but there was an open child support case filed at one point, in which he did not do a paternity test but did not deny the child" isn't very clear. Either he was found to be the parent and child support was ordered or it wasn't. I am really surprised that Family Services hasn't stepped in. For now his best course of action would be to hire a family law attorney.See question
