QUESTIONS

  • My son and both jail, the maternal grandmother was given custody of their two children by CPS. do I as the paternal grandmother have the right to file for custody? if so, what are my chances of getting custody?
  • My children (14 & 17) just started overnights with their father. After a 9 month period where he didn't visit them at all. He has a live in girlfriend and 1 year old child with her. He is now in the habit of leaving my kids to babysit the 1 year old and go out with his girlfriend during his visitation. He and his girlfriend go out drinking. They have a domestic violence history (but more than 2 years ago) involving alcohol both times. Can I prevent this in any way? Isn't visitation supposed to be for my kids to spend time with their father, not babysitting his new kid until midnight/later?
  • We had custody of our grandchildren after their parents were arrested. Our son went to prison for 5 years. She was let go but she was charged with neglect. She completed her classes including drug rehab. As soon as she got the boys back she cut off all communication with us.My son has not talked to or seen his sons in five months.Police records show both parents were at fault.We have spent over $60K we can not afford to hire an other attorney. What can we do?
  • So my niece got taken away from her mother by cps and was placed with the step father . My brother her dad is in prison is there anyway i can get her back.
  • My ex-wife has sole custody of our kids. She constantly uses it to her advantage. We have arranged time for me to have the kids but if it doesn't benefit her she will make it very difficult. I want to have a very set time for which we have the kids and I want to be able to have more imput in decisions regarding the kids. I need to get joint custody. What would be the first steps to do this?
  • My decree states that my ex-husband has supervised visitation. The person who was supervising was my mother, who recently passed away. There is no other family member or friend that can do the supervising. We have tried to have me supervise but we end up fighting during the visit. Will the court supervise or is there a program that will supervise?
  • My husband and I are in the process of getting a divorce. Right now, I have sole custody of our 3 1/2 year old son. My ex has visitation. Our orders do not state a plan for holiday visitation and we did not agree on one. Do I have a right to keep my son on holidays?
  • What can I do when my ex girlfriend who is pregnant isn't going to tell me when and where our baby is going to be born?
  • My husband of 14 years abandon my daughter and I and moved out of state without warning. I am getting ready to file for divorce. My daughter, who is 13, states that she does not want to have any visitation with her father of any kind. She is willing to state that in court or in writing or whatever is required. She is determined to have no communication with her father. Is there an age where a child can make this decision for themselves? She is not fearful of him she just wants nothing to do with him since he abandon her.
  • My ex is not complying with the courts order for visitation. I am supposed to see my child every other weekend and this hasn't ever happened since my divorce was final in Aug of '06. Is there anything legal I can do about my situation.
