  • My wife's parents are a not good influence on our family and we have told them to stay away. They refuse, and have gone as far as just sitting on my front porch in the heat refusing to leave after being told to leave so many times it makes my head spin. They wont tell us but they have told (someone that wont be named) that they would seek a lawyer to see there grand kids. Do they have any right at all to do that? we are married and are doing great, except when they are around. were a little scared and need to know if there is anyway they could side step (us) the parents and get visitation.

  • My wife and I are separated and will file for divorce. She is refusing to let me see my girls who are 9 & 11. I am a good dad who does not do anything illegal, never committed domestic violence or other crime. Up to this point, I have raised and cared for my girls with the most love. It is killing me not to be able to see them. Can she keep them from me? What can be done until the divorce papers are filed? What are my rights?
  • My fiances' ex-wife received over $100,000 in an informal inheritance- her and her brother sold property and split the equity. His payments are current and we see his son regularly. Would her receiving the inheritance change his child support obligation?

  • My 35 year old son lives with me, but recently I've been having two problems. The first is he keeps his room so filthy, it's unhealthy. Clothes all over, along with food containers over r, which will lead to insect problems that I don't want in my home. The other problem, recently he has been bringing over a girl that I don't want in my house. She comes in and uses the shower, my hair and bathing products. She brings her dog, that is destructive. I normally have no problems with his friends, both male and female, but I don't trust her, I don't want her and her dog here. What can I do legally
