You need to seek counsel promptly. Whether that is through a public defender or private counsel is up to you. You need to make that decision based on your meeting with the respective attorney and your financial situation. In any event, you need to have legal representation. What you are saying about your Mother makes it sound as if she does not have a chance, but don't rely on that. The court will make its own determination based on all the facts and circumstances. You need counsel to be sure you get all the relevant facts into the record. Please seek counsel promptly, delay is not advised.See question
My wife has had sole custody for her two daughters from a previous marriage for just over 4 years, where the father has been out of their lives for over 6 years, no child support paid, multiple violations requiring court, no license, no job, lots ...
Please have your wife seek an immediate consultation with counsel. If there is a current court order providing Father parenting time, it is the current court order. However, if there has been no contact for an extended period of time, then Father is a stranger. She should seek legal counsel to determine if and/or how she should respond. Also, she will want to discuss potential court actions, procedures, etc. She should inquire how a phased in parenting arrangement, etc.See question
I need an attorney who can help me file an ex parte hearing. I have had my granddaughter since my daughter was incarcerated-- even before that. She may have had her for a total of four weeks. Last night, csb said she can take her after telling me ...
If you cannot afford an attorney then call legal aid and see if you can get help. You should also try to get funds together for at least a consultation with an attorney to help you determine what actions need to be taken and what type of data and documentation needs to be gathered. Custody hearings are never simple, easy or quick. This are difficult hearings with alot at stake. If you cannot get an attorney through legal aid you should seriously consider speaking with family or friends about support so you can retain counsel.See question

I agree with my colleagues in their answers. You should seek an immediate consultation with an attorney in the area where your daughter is living. Depending on the distance you should be able to set a consultation by phone. You have a lot of catch up work to do if you are just now finding out about this. Counsel should be able to assist you in determining what the status is with children's services and how to get involved to gain custody. Please do not wait any longer, you should act promptly.See question
I am new to this. Don't know what background to give you right here in this little block. But my name is Robert Lytle.
You should seek a consultation with counsel in your community. I generally recommend a consultation with at least two attorneys - view it as an interview. My colleague is correct you should use the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the home page to research lawyers near you. You can also check with family or friends as to what attorney they have used in the past. Even if the attorney they used was not for family law, they may provide the service or have a good recommendation.
Good Luck.See question
Will the couet increase support ti the parent who lost the job on their own accord? And 2nd question, along same lines is if both parents work, what is the percentage difference in income that has to occur for a request of increase in supports?
I agree with my colleagues. If a party is voluntarily unemployed the court can impute income at the rate the person was earning or at least at minimum wage. This will be determined by the specific facts of the situation. As for when child support will actually be modified, it is when the new calculation is at least 10% different (higher or lower) than the previous order. Thus it is difficult to advise whether an order will be modified without running a a calculation which means having the income and health care cost figures. Some attorneys can run estimates of the calculations during a consultation. If support and the amount of a parent's income are it issue, you should seek a consultation with an attorney in your area to review this matter and get guidance on how and when to proceed.See question
I live in Columbus Ohio and my husband has a history of cheating on me. He's keeping secrets from me and lies to me when I ask him questions on if he is. I need a divorce and full custody of my 3 yr old son since he's a truck driver. Please help me.
An attorney cannot bill the other party. A court could/may order husband to contribute to your attorney fees. You should seek an immediate consultation with a family law attorney in your area. You should be prepared to discuss your current situation, concerns with husband's behavior, parenting issues or concerns as well as property and debt concerns. A consultation can be very helpful in providing you guidance on how and when to proceed with a divorce; what documents to gather in preparation for a divorce and what types of matters to keep a look out for that could cause greater issues. In addition, a good consultation can help allay many fears and concerns that you may have so that you can focus and proceed to take care of yourself and your son. The fee for a consultation is money well invested. You can search for a female attorney on this cite.See question
I've tried contacting her she ignores me I just want the best advice I can get so I'm able to see her. She hasn't let my brothers or me see her for over two years when we haven't done anything.
Your question is a little vague. I am assuming you are an adult and your sister a minor. As her mother, she can allow or not allow contact. The question becomes one of your relationship with your sister and whether you may have grounds to file for custody or parenting/visitation time. I suggest that you consult with an attorney in your area to more fully discuss this matter.See question
If God for bid something happens to the mother during a surgical procedure? Can you put it in a will that you want th em to go to a family member or do they automatically go to their father?
The remaining parent would become the custodian of the children. The other family members could seek parenting time and or custody depending on the situation. If you have serious concerns about father's ability to care for the children properly, then I would seek a consultation before the operation. You will want to fully discuss your history and background with Father as well as his contact with the children. Also, be prepared to detail your concerns and get advise on what can be done if something happens to you. Court actions are not slow, they take time, so i recommend doing a consultation now and having a plan as to what to do in the unfortunate event of your demise.See question

You should seek a consultation with an attorney in your area. You will need to take with you a copy of the final custody documents as well as the protective order. The time frame of when they were each issued will be important as much as the terms of each document. If the protective order was obtained after the custody order and applies to the children as well as mother that will have a different impact than if it applies to only mother or if it was in place prior to the custody order. Ultimately you need to thoroughly review the current situation and assess your options for enforcing the parenting order or getting one that is workable.See question
