    I think you should get an attorney for this hearing. Even though the courts have a preference for the status quo, you can never be sure how any individual court may rule. Your mom can be your witness. And you should gather your records regarding child support payments showing that he is in arrears. That is very good evidence of his motives. Good luck.

    Stop spinning your wheels. Most likely the emails are being written with your ex's direction and approval. She may just want the clarity it provides and she Appreciates helpful input. She is doing nothing wrong. Asking as the best interests if the children are being served then there is no harm.

    Every attorney handles things differently. If it is all disclosed in the retainer agreement, then this is proper and you know before hand if you call or email that those are your charges. Having it spelled out in your retainer is "normal practice for family law attorneys"

    An attorney is allowed to issue subpoenas without a court stamp since they are officers of the court. The request for records is proper if designed to provide relevant information for your case

    Yes this can be admissible but you should talk to an attorney about how to do it correctly. In the mean time you should take screen shot to preserve the evidence. The photos need to be date stamped and the person who took them will have to come to court to verify them. Again an attorney can help you to do this correctly.

    Of course. If dad does not have the sense to not have an unlicensed driver driving his children perhaps he will listen to reason if it comes from the person in the black robe.

    When the Court hears a case about Domestic Violence and the request for a Restraining Order, they want to know if the person asking for the Order is in real fear for their own safety or the safety of others close by. The fact that he did not get a temporary order shows that he did not make his case to the Court. The further in time that the hearing happens from the incident that underlies the action, the less likely a RO will be granted. If he really feared for his safety, there would have...
