My significant other, has been taken in to custody, in Oregon Washington co. For 6 failure to appear. What can I do on a limited budget to help get a court date, much less get him out.
If your significant other has been charged with a crime, and cannot afford an attorney, he/she can request a court appointed attorney.See question
Father of my child packed up and moved out while I was at work a year ago. Leaving behind myself and our then 1 yr old. We have since set up visiting times (between us no courts). He's since gotten engaged and started threatening me with custody ...
He "can" but he shouldn't, and you have options available. It's time to go speak with an attorney and get a "status quo" order (called a Temporary Protective Order of Restraint). If you cannot afford an attorney, contact the family law department of the courthouse right away. These Orders are meant to freeze in place the child's usual residence address, schedule, routine, parenting time, and can prohibit parents from leaving the state with the child.See question
they faxed me custody papers and asked to sign and fax back ASAP but on the documents it has no date on the forms. I do not agree to the terms. what is a reasonable response time to fax back, and how can I change the terms?
Ir sounds like you are being asked to "accept" service. If that is the case, there is no time line to accept but at some point if you don't they will just have a process server deliver the documents to start the response timeline. Most initiating papers have a 30 days response but some have shorter timelines. You have to file a response with the court to dispute what is being requested. You should really take the papers to an attorney for a private consultation.See question
I have full custody of my 9 yr old daughter. Her father was in and out of her life since we got divorced and has been completely not involved for 4 years as in never sees her or calls her and does not pay child support. Child support office has be...
Yes, you can ask the court to change her last name - but you have to give notice to the father and the public (with posting at the courthouse). You would have to be appointed as Guardian Ad Litem (guardian for purposes of court processes) for your daughter so you can file the paperwork on her behalf. As Mr. Bodzin mentioned, you do have to make good faith attempts to find the father to serve him, but there are alternative options for service. There are specific posting and notice requirements. There are forms available, but you should consult with an attorney for assistance with the process - especially if the father objects.See question
I have sole custody but my ex keeps calling CPS and filing false reports against me. Cases get opened and closed unfounded. Now has a temporary custody order against me simultaneously filing for a modification of custody, parenting time, and child...
It sounds like there is alot going on here. If it was an immediate danger custody order the court is supposed to set a hearing once requested within 14 days. The person who obtained thr order has the burden on proving the allegations. You should consult with an attorney privately to discuss your options.See question
Been granted support judgement and ex isn't paying. I have no more money to continue paying attorneys fees. I don't know what to do?
If it is child support, ask the Division of child support to start garnishing him. If it is spousal support, you can have his wages garnished as well but not through the division of child support (unless you are receiving both child support and spousal support -then they will help). There might be forms online for this, but you will need the court or an attorney to sign the writ.See question

If you are on the birth certificate then paternity was established through voluntary acknowledgement. You have the right to file a petition asking the court to establish custody, parenting time, support, etc. If your child is in an unsafe situation, you can ask the court to grant you emergency custody. You should consult with an attorney privately regarding your options.See question

These are complicated cases. Third parties can petition the court for custody and/or visitation with children that they are not legal parents of, but it is not easy. Legal parents have constitutional rights to raise their children as they see fit, so long as that is in the child's best interest. Your friend needs to consult with an attorney.See question
It's my weekend with my child. The custodial mother went to the child's school and walked into her classroom and pulled her out of school. So that the babysitter that I had arranged couldn't pick her up from school. Since I work and can't take her...
It sounds like there are some other details involved in this. If you were deprived of court ordered parenting time, without some emergency basis, you have options to enforce your parenting plan. You should consult with an attorney privately to discuss the details and your case specific options.See question
The mother (mistress) of the unborn baby doesnt want the baby and wants to give up her right to my husband which he is the father
Yes, if after the baby is born you adopt your husband's child (with him keeping his rights) as Mr. Bodzin described. There are notice requirements to some other family members, and other rights/obligations that are lost or gained. For example, if you adopt the child with your husband, the biological mother would have no obligation to pay child support. You should at least consult with an attorney; this is not something you want to handle on your own.See question
