Is an order of protection the best thing to do? He says he will tell DHS that I hit our daughter and don't feed her (that's not true). He thinks I'm cheating on him (I'm not) and keeps harassing me after I ask him to leave me alone.
It would certainly seem like an Order of Protection would be warranted if he is threatening to kill you. You can go to the Circuit Clerk's office to file a Petition for the Order of Protection, and if the Judge thinks it is warranted the Court will issue an ex parte order of protection to stay in effect until a hearing is held on your petition. You can hire an attorney to help you with the hearing, if you wish.See question
My x husband just took me to court 4 months ago to modify our parenting plan and to get child support from me. It was granted. Now he is telling me he wants to move to Florida with our son and says he can do that without my consent.
If a custodial parent wishes to relocate out of state with the child, there is a presumption that the relocation will be allowed. The presumption can be rebutted if the purpose of the move is to frustrate visitation or if you can overcome the presumption that the move is in the best interests of the child (which can be tough in most cases). Not that a different standard applies if it is a joint physical custody situation.
Even if the custodial parent is allowed to relocate, the distance between Arkansas and Florida will make it likely that some changes to the visitation order will be needed, both for a new visitation schedule as well as things such as how transportation of the child for visitation will be handled.See question

The first thing you'll need to do is find out if he actually went to Court (you don't state why you believe he went to Court, what his allegations were, or whether you and he were ever married, if paternity has ever been adjudicated, etc. These are all things you'll want to discuss with an attorney).
If he did, a hearing should be scheduled within the next few weeks. You'll want to be prepared to respond to his allegations and bring whatever evidence or witnesses you have to show that he isn't being truthful in his allegations, as well as hold him to his burden of proof.See question

As Ms. Turrin stated, stop posting facts -- this is a public forum and prosecutors can read your post and what you say happened.
Hire an attorney to assist you. If you cannot afford an attorney, ask the Court to appoint you one.See question
I gave temp custody of my daughter to my brother and his wife when I lost my job and home and could not provide for her. I then went to jail for four months and while there I found out my husband lied about our daughters adoption being finalized ...
The facts set out in your question are too convoluted for someone to try and give you any useful advice over an Internet posting (It's not even clear whether you adopted your daughter, if the adoption was never granted, whether you consented to a guardianship or just let someone else care for the child, or if there was some other type of court order).
You'll need to sit down with an attorney, with copies of any court pleadings, orders, or other documents, who is licensed to practice in the state that would have jurisdiction over this case. If a court has entered an order, jurisdiction may still be in that state. If no court order, then it would be the state the child has resided in, with a parent or someone acting as a parent, for the last six months (Kentucky?).See question

You are correct in that you need to petition the Court to be appointed guardian of your grandchildren, the difficult part is going through the process to do so on your own.
Nobody is going to be able to educate you enough to handle this on your own over the Internet. You'll need to spend the time to educate yourself so you know how to draft up the petition and notices, as well as become familiar with not only the substantive law of guardianship, but also the rules of procedure and the rules of evidence.
Visit a law library, and see if the reference librarian can show you where you need to start looking.See question

From your query it appears you'll need to check with an attorney in Washington, as that State is probably the state with jurisdiction over any cases dealing with the custody or guardianship of your granddaughter under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act, unless some other state has already entered custody orders or Mom had sent your granddaughter to live with you more than six months ago.
The qualifications for whom may receive an appointment as guardian may be different in Washington, so you need to consult with someone who is familiar with the law in that state.See question
Bought a car from a car lot drove it not even 5 miles and it over heated had it towed to my mechanic he told me is was a creacked head I call the car lot and the guy told me I drover it off the lot that way and he won't do anything about it
The Lemon Law does not apply to used cars, and so you need to look at whether the car was sold to you with a warranty. Often, unless it is a "certified pre-owned vehicle," dealers will include a statement in their contracts that the used car is sold "as is." Check your paperwork to see what it says about warranties or if there is a disclaimer of warranties.See question

Unless there is a court order giving custody of your daughter to someone, both parents of a child born during the marriage have equal rights to their child and it is not kidnapping for you to take your own child.
Whether you stay in the home or move out, if you want out of this relationship your best solution is to go ahead and file a lawsuit, such as for divorce or separate maintenance, and ask the Court for a hearing to grant you temporary custody and order your husband to pay child support.See question
