  • My father passed away 10/22/13. He had a Revocable Family Trust, I was listed as a cotrustee. I was promised a copy of the trust several times but haven't seen it yet. If wife of 7 or 8 years is refusing to let me see it and says it will now be changed and if there's anything left when she passes we'll get then. Is she required by law to give me a copy of the trust now? Don't I have a right to see what the trust says on the day of my father's death? Please advise.

  • My wife and I are divorcing and we currently have three adopted children and are currently fostering another- underkinship care. My wife does not want to adopt him and I do. I plan to adopt him. She has stated that she will complain he has molested and beat up the other kids in the home to have him removed. There is only one incident that has been recorded with CPS. She has not told me or the case worker of anything else. Can I adopt him even after we are divorced and how do I protect him against untruths?

  • My Husband’s Brother (14) is going to come live with us, He currently lives in CO w/ Mother in an unsettling environment (alcoholism, neglect, severe verbal abuse, “No one will take u because no one loves you. You’re worthless. Etc” We know said Mother will not provide any monetary support and will continue to cash his SS as his legal guardian. After 6 months in these circumstances will we have grounds to petition for legal custody on grounds of abandonment? And is there any legal loop hole that will grant us the ability to file for custody IN AZ prior to 6 months?

Their mother has a new job theat requires her to work 12 hour night shifts. I have offered to take the boys duing these times and was denied by their mother.
