QUESTIONS

  • I have a baby that's going to be born soon and the mother will not let me be part of the baby's life because I choose to be with someone else. She's giving the baby her new boy friend's last name even though she and I both know the baby is mine. What can I do to be in my child's life legally without her being able to tell me no?
  • I received a letter from an attorneys office stating that the home I am renting has been forclosed on.  How long do I have before being evicted? How do I recoup my deposit if I do not withold rent?
  • My mother recently passed away while on hospice care. I did not have pre-arrangements made. Hospice offered to arrange services with the least expensive local funeral home. Since this is hospice' area of expertise, I agreed. This funeral home charged nearly twice what the other two businesses in the area charge. This company also was not the coroner designated on call mortuary for this particular month? I feel this is a scam, what can I do?
  • My son who is 12yrs old has been living with me for the last 6 months. His mother has not worked in about 4yrs and moved several times and at this time has no place to live or car. She gets 1226. a month from me. She has medical issues and feel she is not stable. She has been admitted to a behavioral hospital a couple times and is currently on probation for her daughters truancy. I want to know whats the best way to get custody of my son. Im afraid if she finds out she will take him from me
  • Can I stop the eviction if it will leave me without a home?
  • "When parents are unmarried and no order has been entered to establish parental rights, the biological father has no legal right to either custody or parenting time until paternity is established." I read this in a question on the website and I was wondering if the child has the fathers last name, does it still mean they have no legal rights until official paternity has been established?
  • I am collecting unemployment and want to go to school to get a masters degree. I will be attending ONLINE only. Can I keep filing for my weekly benifits?
  • If both parents agree to 50/50 custody and neither want to pay or recieve child support what is the law? Will one of the parents have to pay some amount?
  • There are allegations of neglect that are not true & I have a court appointed attorney that is prejudice against my beliefs, me, & family. How do I go about finding another attorney that will really help me out & fight for my rights?
  • If an intruder breaks into my apartment at night and I hurt him before I know if he is armed, can I be charged with assault or anything else?
