After a year, my daughter's father is wanting visitation rights, change of last name, and paying stuff for her equally. I have concerns about his girlfriend confusing her and filling her head with nonsense about Leda's mother and family. I fear dr...
From your post, it's my guess that you and the father were never married. In that case, you have full custody of your daughter unless and until a court orders otherwise.
If the father files a lawsuit to establish his paternity and parental rights, the Court can find him to be the father and then order that he be entitled to visitation (in some circumstances the Court can also award him custody, but your post specifically states he is asking for visitation).
All of the concerns that you listed would be things that the Court can consider in deciding what visitation he should have, as well as any restrictions - such as people that he cannot have around your daughter, prohibiting certain acts around her, etc.See question
Just trying to find out if there is a way to be labeled disabled without SS Disability or SSI? I keep hearing that you are not disabled if the government doesn't say you are. Is the true??
Context is important as "disability" will be defined differently for different purposes. Disability has a specific definition under the Social Security Act for purposes of drawing disability benefits, and will have a specific, but different, definition under an insurance policy for purposes of paying disability payments under the policy. Similar, there are many veterans who receive benefits for their service-connected disabilities that do not qualify for Social Security Disability.See question
The job I have at the time the child support was sumited I loss I found another job in the one I make less money, it's hard to get $300 the I need to pay to my baby.
The Court cannot modify your support based upon a letter. You must file a formal motion requesting that child support be modified based upon a material change of circumstances, and the other party must be given the opportunity to have a hearing on your motion if they do not agree with the change.
If the other parent agrees that your support should be modified and you both agree on what the new amount should be, you can submit a proposed order (signed by both of you) to the Court with your motion so you can avoid the necessity of a hearing.See question
I have been awarded sole ownership of property.I have filed a motion of contempt,show cause & he was verbally ordered by the judge to go to clerk office to sign quitclaim deed.However He left courthouse without doing as instructed.What else is the...
You can petition the Court to:
1) Have your ex held in contempt and incarcerated until he purges himself of contempt by complying with the Court's orders, or
2) Have the Circuit Clerk issue a Commissioner's Deed transferring the property to your sole name.
The Court may have a preference over which relief to provide, so you can request one or the other as alternative relief.See question
I recently took a job in a new state, leaving my children with their dad as I thought it was in their best interest to stay in the community and school they currently attend. I made this decision under the assumption that my husband was sober. D...
There really isn't enough in your post to give you "chances" of success in a custody action. Your husband's substance abuse is going to be a major issue, but you can be certain that he will raise the fact that you left the kids with him when you left the state (I realize that you thought he was sober you when you left).
You really need to work with an attorney who can get into all of the details of your situation.See question
I was married found my self stranded out of town just started over without a devorce married another woman and went to devorce her do to differences and now I'm stuck in this situation what can I do
If you and your first wife were never divorced, your second marriage is void. You cannot marry someone when you are already married to another person.
You'll need to divorce your first wife. You can't divorce your second wife since you didn't have a valid marriage to her, though she may bring an annulment action against you.See question
My ex and I were married for 13 years. We have been divorced for almost 8 now. We have 5 children together. Last year he decided he would no longer communicate with me in any way other than email. He blocked me from calling or texting him and ...
First, parents should never be used as the go-between for their parents. That will never turn out well for either parent or the children.
We're not privy to the specifics of your visitation, but if it's a problem with re-arranging visitation then hopefully your decree is specific about times and procedures to exchange the children for visitation and you'll have to follow those unless you are able to get together in a timely manner and agree on something else.
You would both likely be much happier if you can find a way to communicate. You can check with some of the local family services agencies or the University to see about classes to help you improve the lines of communication. It's certainly worth a try before getting involved in more litigation.See question
Married 2006 in Tennessee, hes been in and out of multiple state prisons and jails while i remained a resident of Tennessee. I recently relocated to Arkansas and hadnt had contact with him since 2015. I found out that he is incarcerated again and ...
You can either file in Tennessee, in which you would need the advice of a lawyer licensed to practice in Tennessee, or (if you have been a residence of Arkansas for at least 60 days) you can file in Arkansas for a "divorce in rem," which means the Court can grant you a divorce but could not enter any orders regarding debts, property, support, etc.
You won't have to pay attorney's fees if you do it yourself instead of hiring an attorney - though then you need to consider whether you feel confident that you can handling pursuing a divorce suit if you don't even know how to file one. As for filing fees, you can file a petition asking the Court to waive fees if you cannot afford them.See question
I was assigned temporary guardianship over my two cousins when my aunt died last June. My oldest cousin graduates this month and the other is 13. The 18 year old has been living with me and my husband and the 13 year old has been with a family mem...
As to your guardianship question, the 18 year-old can be substituted as Guardian for the 13 year-old. Assuming that someone isn't going to object to the substitution for some reason and she isn't a convicted and unpardoned felon, it should be a straight forward proposition. You can file a petition asking for the substitution, and then submit an agreed order to the Court.
Once the Court has entered the order and the Clerk issued new Letters of Guardianship, I would suggest that you take that documentation down to your local Social Security Office and they should be able to help you take care of it from there.See question
In October of 2016 we had our final hearing. I was awarded primary custody with child support. During the marriage he drank a lot and wanted to hit and fight me. He was involved in a three year affair. I placed an order of protection against h...
In order to prevail in Court, he would have to first show that there has been a material change of circumstances since your last custody order was entered and then that it would be in the best interests of the children for the Court to modify the custody order (and just being 'the fun parent' won't be sufficient).
Of course nobody can tell you what would happen in Court without knowing all of the facts and circumstances of your case, but if he is not paying support, cohabiting with a woman that he is not married to, being difficult to work with, and having a hard time complying with court orders as it is, he will certainly have some major obstacles to overcome.See question
