    Alan’s Answer

    You may not be entitled to file a petition to partition. That action is designed for joint owners. You are beneficiaries of a trust. All of your rights are determined from the declaration of trust. A lawyer needs to read the declaration of trust to advise you on your legal rights.

    Alan’s Answer

    The police may not want to get involved. You can try calling them but don't be surprised if they tell you to go to court. If you go to pick him up the Father may refuse to let you take him. Your best bet is to wait until courts open and go to court to get an emergency order. The order may instruct the police to accompany you to ensure the child is turned over without breaching the peace.

    Alan’s Answer

    Unless the existing court orders require snow clothing be exchanged there is no obligation for her to send snow pants, etc. It is cheaper for you to buy another set than to fight over the issue.

  • Can I move to PA to be with the father of our unborn child? How likely is it that they will make me stay in Mass?

    I am divorced and my ex husband and I have one child together. I am currently pregnant with my boyfriends child and he lives in PA, which is also the state where the baby was conceived.

    Alan’s Answer

    You can live anywhere you want. However, if you have custody of children from your prior marriage, you need permission of your ex-husband or a judge if you want to move the children out of Massachusetts. Merely to be with the father of your new child is probably not a sufficient reason. However, you should consult an attorney to determine the your rights based on a full discussion of the facts.
