my ex is keeping my child from me and me and her set up childsupport and visitation together but she is now keeping my child from me.
I agree with Thomas Baker. This is not a DIY legal issue. Enforcements are hyper-technical, so you'll definitely want a lawyer to be the one drafting the documents and making sure the correct evidence is presented in court.See question
We have Joint custody, but most of the decision making falls on me, and when he doesn't pay his portion of the after-school care or medical bills, I have to. He rarely pays me back, and never the whole amount. I don't necessarily want to file fo...
It sounds like you're doing a 50/50 expense share without formal child support. It sounds like you need to hire an attorney to enforce the existing orders and to modify the order to provide for child support. Getting a flat amount of child support each month that can be withheld from his paycheck would be far easier and logistically cleaner than having to beg and plead for his portion of all sorts of individual transactions.See question
My son came to my resident in May of this year. His mother and I have no custody rights established. I decide to keep my son. Because his mother is a victim of domestic violence and is still residing with her boyfriend, who is her abuser. She sent...
I agree that you absolutely need an attorney ASAP. Ultimately, the suit might belong in your state, but you need an attorney to help you navigate those logistical obstacles. It sounds like you have a good case; you just need to make sure it's handled correctly procedurally. I wish you the best!See question
He is Air Force Reserve and is trying to get custody of his oldest daughter and I am worried he will try to come after my baby. How can I protect myself from that are be able to get some kind of help from him for the baby?
Unless you are on drugs and/or completely unstable, I wouldn't be overly concerned that he'd be successful in getting custody of your newborn. I agree that you should put down roots where you have the most support. Once the baby is born, you'll need to file a suit affecting parent-child relationship and get the child support flowing. I expect that you'll be just fine. I wish you the best!See question
i was told by a non lawyer his is his and not split.
I echo the statement that merely having separate accounts does not make the funds separate property, legally-speaking. It would be helpful for you to sit down with a family law attorney who can review the assets with you and give you an explanation of their likely characterization.See question
I transferred a property using a gift deed to my mother for managerial purposes. It is our wish that the property revert back to me in the event of her passing. She is married to my stepdad. It was told to us that because it's a gift, the property...
Agreed. This should remain her separate property. I echo the sentiment about maintaining meticulous records and, depending on the type of property, not co-mingling it with any community property.See question
My ex and I have been divorced for over a year. We have 3 boys ages 9, 8, and 5. They want to each do an extra cirrucular activity which they would occasionally need to be brought to on his weekends. I have offered to bring them there and home i...
This is unfortunate, but technically, his time is his time, though it would serve him well to be reminded that kids are over 18 a lot longer than they are under 18 and this sort of behavior can fracture relationships with his children for decades to come.See question
I served time in jail my husband will not allow me to spend time with my son. We are not divorced or legally separated he does not want a divorce. I still have my parental rights there is no court ordered custody
I agree. As long as there are no orders, you two are on equal footing. However, if either of you were to pursue orders, your incarceration could certainly be held against you (depending upon the nature of the offense and length of imprisonment). I wish you the best!See question
Her dad knew where she was but listed her as a runaway she's now in a juvi center can she refuse to go with him
I agree with the other attorney. Where are you in this situation? What is your involvement? Is there a reason she can't go home with you?See question
I am going through a separation, and I am in the process of divorce. My wife stated to me she spoke with her attorney and that it would not be a good idea for our boys to stay the weekend with my family because she is afraid that I will not return...
I agree that you need to hire an attorney and get some temporary possession orders in place. Oftentimes, depending on your judge, little bitty kids like your 7-month-old don't spend the night away from home, so you need an attorney who can help craft an order that will work for you and that will be in the best interest of your very young children. I wish you the best!See question
