QUESTIONS

  • Under what legal authority does the father (never married) of my 6 year old, who has been deemed unsuitable for joint custody & has yet been able to abide by basic court appointed supervised visitation guidelines, have to continually bring me to court with neglectful parenting allegations, which are always dropped &, coincidentally, decided that he is the perpetrator in each case? Furthermore, as victim to his court declared domestic abuse (physical/metal), how is it that I am being required to be in contact with the perpetrating father, or at risk of losing my son due to parental alienation?
  • im sorry i have no idea what category this would fall under since it can be under a few. idont know what else to do but my mom is is a horrible situation with my adult drug addict brother and she is always living each moment not knowing what he will be like each second. he has a violent history with my parents and he has a recond you can look up. michael hahn dob 7/25/88.. our dad just passed away and he is taking full advantage of our mom by staying there unwanted,using drugs,stealing things to get his drugs and being verbally,physically and emotionally abusive .what can be done?shes afraid
  • I am currently going through a divorce, where there is no custody established, and am pregnant. I have been put on strict bedrest. I am trying to move to Nevada where I will have more help from my older children's father and be able to be on bedrest like I'm supposed to. Would I be able to file a petition for relocation with a minor, and temporarily move before the 60 days, without getting in trouble for it. And will it effect how they decide custody. Also, I have a PO against the other parent, and there has been domestic violence toward me and the children during our marriage.
  • after being arrested about 10 years ago, the attorneys office denied the case from the arresting department due to lack of evidence. Charges were never filed with the state, however the arrest record still has to be researched with every background check. is there a way to have this removed from public record since there was never even a case or conviction?
  • I recently went through a child custody hearing. In the judges ruling, he claimed that I was convicted of Domestic Violence and that I was abusing te legal system by reporting Domestic violence by my ex. I have never been charged but my ex has been 12 times with 5 convictions and 5 other charges dismissed as part of plea agreements. Do I have any recourse against the judge?
  • How long does a person have to get his or her belongings out after being served a order of protection? They came the day they got served and I called the police on them.
  • My Ex husband was arrested for felony domestic violence in another state with his new wife. He and I share 2 children together and I am very concerned with my child's well being. Can I file emergency orders against him for full custody of my kids?
  • I took a diversion deal for two DV misdemeanor charges, resulting in 26 counseling sessions and 36 mo. probation. Since the conviction has not been entered, once I finish the counseling program, can I get the charges dismissed or do I have to wait until completing at least 18 months of probation?
  • My 15year old refuse to follow my rule and the law rules he in the system my son lied to police and said my fiance hit him with a object me the mother of 15year old told police that was not true and they took my fiance to jail for 3rd degree battery and put porole hold on him my fiance did not hit him what's the proper steps to take to free him
  • I am not married to my daughters father, we recently split due to domestic violence. I am talking with him and his lawyer to get a resolution before our temporary orders hearing. The only term we are not agreeing on is that I want to stipulate that my daughter and I can relocate to Colorado in a year. His attorney keeps saying the courts will not accept that even if we come to an agreement on everything else before our court date. I spoke to an attorney who told me the opposite. How do I word this to his attorney or is his attorney right?
