You can (and should) file for custody. You are the father of one child, and probably can also file for custody of the other child, since she has been living with you.
Custody decisions are made based on a review of many factors affecting the welfare of a child. You should sit down in person with a lawyer to review the situation, but based on the limited facts which you have presented, it appears that she has acquiesced in the situation.
With regard to child support, once you've filed for custody, you can also file through domestic relations to have the daughter's child support paid to you.See question
I got pulled over and was charged with DUI controlled substance schedule first offense. DUI controlled substance metabolite 1st offense. and DUI controlled substance impaired ability first offense.
DUIs are classified as misdemeanors; the degree determines how serious it is, in terms of the possible punishments.
A first degree misdemeanor is the most serious type of misdemeanor offense. What actually will happen depends on a number of factors, and the fact that this is a first offense will help you. You should sit down with an attorney who will want to go over the complaint with you, and discuss your options.See question
Account frozen over credit card.
My best guess is that the credit card company had sued you, and has a judgment. They would then have served papers on the bank. The bank is required to freeze the account, and the bank's attorney then files a response in Court, stating how much money is in the account. You would get notice of this, and have the right to object. This takes some time, and unfortunately, the bank will charge you some fees, and bounce other checks in the meantime (if any were outstanding).
You should sit down with an attorney to discuss your options. They might include paying the judgment, making an agreement with the bank, or filing a bankruptcy petition.See question

An appearance is a simple 1 page form, giving your address where future papers can be served. However, if you want to defend the case, you will also need to file an Answer, responding paragraph by paragraph to the Complaint, and raising any other defenses you have. You should consult an attorney if you are not familiar with the Rules of Civil Procedure.See question
We weren't married, but we were in a common law marriage (joint finances- not recognized by PA). I put a down payment on the house, bought the appliances, installed fencing, remodeled, installed a security camera system, equipped the ex with a ver...
You are correct that Pennsylvania no longer recognizes common law marriage, with an exception for common-law marriages entered into before January 1, 2005. Even without a marriage, there are a number of other legal arguments that you could make in this situation, to recover something for your investment in the house. The courts will enforce an agreement between two unmarried persons, and you might also claim to be an equitable owner of the property based on the facts you describe.
Before filing anything in court, most lawyers would at least attempt to reach a settlement with her. As you are aware, that only works if she (and you) are willing to be reasonable and reach some compromise. Otherwise, you may have to pursue the matter through the courts.See question
We have no written lease and I haven't been given any eviction notice and have no proof of payment cause it was cash I live in pa but have lived here for 3 months can she make me just leave
If you have been living there as a tenant, you are considered to have a month to month lease. Your landlord would need to give you a written notice to quit, and then file an eviction complaint with a District Justice.See question
We've been married for 29 years he's an alcoholic we both live in the house he's cheating on me I want a divorce will I get half the house or not even though it's only in his name
I agree with the previous answers, but will add that if the house was purchased during the marriage, it can be divided in a divorce even though only his name is on it. Even if the house were acquired before the marriage, you have some rights, since it has certainly increased in value during the marriage.
It is important that you make a claim for distribution of property before a divorce is final.

Yes - at a minimum, you will need something to allow you to arrange for medical care. A medical power of attorney could accomplish this much.
If this is going to be a long-term arrangement, you would want to have a custody order. A custody order can be obtained by agreement, which an attorney could prepare and then file with the court for you. All parties, including the father, would need to sign it.See question
My sister gave my brother, sister and myself property with a home, my brother and sister are giving me the property, How do I get their names removed from the deed? (the deed is in all three of our names)

My husband wants to adopt my son and his biological father hasn't been in his life for 8 yrs and he is a registered sex offender would his rights have been stripped or would I have to take them away
From what you have said, it is likely that you have a basis for terminating his parental rights. This doesn't happen automatically; you would have to file a petition with the court. After that is granted, your Husband would be able to adopt your son. As others have noted, the cost will depend on whether or not the proceeding is contested.See question
