QUESTIONS

  • My children's mother dropped the kids off with me December 31, three days after my agreed weekly visit not wanting to be responsible for taking care of them anymore. Ive got documentation and witnesses that she dropped them off with the intent to sign over her rights as a mother so she could do as she pleases. How do I protect myself legally so she cannot come and go taking them from a stable home after not being in contact once for the past five weeks? She dropped them off at my job with only the clothes on their backs. I am employed and have constant care for them, how do I protect myself?
  • I live in a 55+ community and have just married a younger wife under the age requirement. IThe home owner own the mobile home and pay lot fees every month for the property. The Mobile home assoc. is trying to evict my wife because of her age. Do I have any rights to prevent this or is there a required amount of time the park must give me before I have to leave.

  • My felony conviction has been set aside. How do I now answer job app question that ask if I have "any felony convictions" or that include an exclusion of "annulled, expunged, or sealed convictions". I now know my case disposition is "set aside" (not guilty, not expunged). Based upon I read in this article, I thought I would be able to deny the felony question on job apps but none of the job apps I've seen have asked for "prior" convictions. I have been logging those questions just in case I had someone to ask on how to respond now that I have set aside order.
  • If the father of my children has been living at home since he got released from prison, and I am no longer getting des assistance how do we get the child support order stopped and get some of the back pay removed from what is owed when he was in prison?
