Both My ex-wife and I are going to a Parent / Teacher meeting for him. We have equal custody.
Depends on what your Judgment says. If it is silent as to any restrictions on who can babysit then I would say no.See question
She says she is moving out in April and taking everything with her can she do that?
If no case has been started then sure she can. What I would suggest you do is either file for divorce and get an injunction that says she can't remove anything from the house and/or take pictures of everything in the house now and if she does take items with her other than her personal belongings, make a list of what she takes. Typically she is entitled to 1/2 of what's in the house. That being said if you brought some of those items with you when you got married you may be entitled to keep those things. Same thing if you received something as a gift from her or someone else. Best bet for you is to consult an attorney in your area immediately.See question
They said it will go to the referee before the judge to determine if it should go forward. What should I expect from the hearing? If the referee says it should not go forward can i still see the judge?
I don't practice in Muskegon County but in many counties the Referee will make the initial determination of whether the threshold of change of circumstances has been met. Then if you or the other parent does not like the Referee's decision you can file objections to it and go before the judge to see if the judge will make a different determination. Again, I don't practice in your county so I can't guarantee that is the process there so you should definitely consult with an attorney in your county. A motion for change of custody should never be filed without an attorney's assistance as there are so many things that need to be addressed and the typical litigant does not have the knowledge or experience to do that.See question
Last custody hearing a few years ago my son was missing days of school but just started seeing a therapist so custody was not changed. Since then he has stopped therapy and then restarted later at a new office. His attendance got worse and he did ...
While just changing schools alone probably would not be enough of a change in circumstances to warrant a modification together with the remaining issues certainly could. Especially concerning is the 2 months of missed school. Further if you have joint legal custody the child's school should not have been changed without your consent or an Order of the Court. Same goes for the therapist. Obviously I don't know all of the ins and outs of your case and that's really what will determine if you have a sufficient change. I would suggest you contact an attorney in your area as soon as possible. Good luck.See question
I have a husband who is withholding money from me even though I don't have any. I started a job and he's refusing to pay daycare (the child isn't biologically his) and is also refusing to pay my car ins. which is due in less than a week. He is al...
That all depends on what you want to do. Do you want to get a divorce? That's your first question. If the answer is no then you need to talk to him and/or get some marriage counseling. You should obviously have access to all accounts as it's your money too. If you want a divorce then you need to contact an attorney that practices family law.See question
I have Sole Legal/Physical custody of my son, mom lost custody when she went to jail for Fraud and left him with a known drug user/dealer. 2 felony drug charges and a habitual charge are now pending. Mom was just given reg parenting time after 6 m...
I wouldn't wait for the attorney to withdraw from your case. I would immediately contact a new attorney to represent you from this point forward. Sounds like you may need to file an emergency motion to cease her parenting time again. Obviously the communication between you and your current attorney has broken down and therefore that attorney can't properly represent you anymore. And if your child hasn't been returned to you I assume you have contacted the police to report that? If not you should do that immediately too.See question
My husband was charged with a Felony Warrant for back child support. His ex wife worked and still works close with the court house in which this is happening. He had 2 bonds for child support (Same thing, 1 for 5k and the other out of FOC for 4k. ...
It's not double jeopardy. The amount of the warrant depends on the amount he owes and there could be one warrant out of the prosecutor's office and one from the court for his failure to obey court orders. And of course his ex-wife can and should be a witness. Who better to say she hasn't received the money? And working for or with the court is not a conflict of interest in and of itself. People who work in courts get divorced in them all the time. What he should do is pay his support then he wouldn't have to worry about warrants or being arrested.See question
I have settlement checks that I am suppose to receive every month from my attorney's office. I have to call them every month and the checks are always late. I don't know what to do.
I obviously don't know the particulars of your situation, but calling the attorney and making an appointment to sit down to discuss it would be best. If these are checks that are coming to your attorney from a third party, perhaps those checks are coming to your attorney late and he's getting you your check as soon as he or she can. Best to try to resolve it with him or her first and if you don't get it resolved to your satisfaction then you can always file a Complaint with the AGC as Ms. Stuart-Fink indicated.See question
I have been a part time Stay At Home Mom for almost 20 years. I haven't worked much in almost two years due to illnesses and accidents. I recently received a settlement from an auto related accident. We are preparing to divorce in the very near...
You've presented many questions that really can't be answered fully in this forum but the short answer to your questions regarding support is maybe. Is the settlement paid on a monthly basis or a lump sum? I could be determined to be income to you or just an asset. You will definitely be entitled to spousal support from the facts that are presented but there are many more questions that need to be asked and answered before anyone can give you an idea as to how much and for how long. The marital portions of your husband's retirement accounts should all be divided equally between you. The fact that you liquidated your 401k or sold a house really wouldn't have much bearing on the case at all. If you own a house together you are also entitled to half of the equity in it. I would strongly encourage you to contact an attorney immediately to at least get an idea of what you're entitled to. Good luck to you.See question

You really need to consult a family law attorney regarding this situation immediately. It sounds like your sister has been living with you for a while? If that's true and along with everything else in your post then you may be able to become her guardian. This is a very complicated issue so I would suggest consulting with an attorney right away.See question
