While you do not have a legal ownership interest in the home, you have an equitable interest if you can show how much you have paid towards the mortgage and how that has affected the principal balance. Contact an experiences family law attorney, if you have not already done so. They can provide you with more specific information based upon your individual situation.See question

If your children are currently in Delta County, as your zip code suggests, the judge in Delta County that would hear your case often considers the input of children as young as 5. The older and more mature the children the more weight their wishes have. Of course that's only one of numerous factors the court would consider in changing your children's primary residence. To get a better idea of whether now is the time to file a motion or not you should speak to an experienced family law attorney about the specifics of your situation.See question

The question is not if someone in your chain of command can order you to give up your child. The real question is, if they do give you such an order, is it a lawful order? That all depends on the specifics of the order and knowing more facts about your situation. You should consult with your base or post defense counsel to get their advice. Alternatively, speak to a private attorney with military law experience. Whatever you do, do not seek the advise of an attorney in your Legal Assistance office. The attorneys there represent the government's interests, not yours. Good luck.See question

My two colleagues are correct. You have the right to file for court ordered parenting time. The Judge that will hear your case has heard many similar cases and based on his past decisions it is likely he will provide you temporary parenting time until such time as the parents present to the Court that they are stable, safe for the children, and that the children's best interests dictate their return to their parents. Until you file something with the court and get an order from the judge the parents can demand you return the children at any time. You should definitely speak to an experienced family law attorney.See question

If the facts of your son's arrest fit a certain pattern then the Mesa County District Attorneys will typically agree to a sentence along a pre-established continuum. However, he first needs an attorney to review the evidence to determine if there were errors or omissions during or after your son was ticketed. There are many things to consider that are too numerous to mention here. Also, your son is on a short time line for his DMV hearing (completely separate issue from his Court citation and appearance). This hearing will determine if he loses his license and if so, how he can work to regain it.See question
My son does not know him, his father was extremely abusive and has only ever called to ask me to take the child support off.
You didn't indicate what amount of time the father was awarded by the Court. Under most scenarios I can imagine, you would be in a position to ask for a modification of the current order. A judge will not say the father can't have any visitation but will likely say the father needs to rebuild the relationship. What that entails depends on numerous factors and may or may not be consistent with the current parenting order. You should seek out the advice of an experienced family law attorney to see what your next move should be.See question

The amount of child support you are required to pay is affected by numerous factors. The two major factors are the respective incomes of the parents and the number of overnights each parent has with the children. If you can substantiate the number of overnights has changed, and it is not a temporary change in the other parent's work schedule, you can ask the Court to modify the child support. If the new calculation is more than a 10% change from the current Support Order the Court will order the change in support.
There are a number of issues you will need to present to the Court. You should contact an experienced family law attorney to discuss what needs to be done to accomplish the change in support you are seeking.
