You don't say how the dog is listed in the divorce decree. If the decree says she gets the dog and it has not been signed by the Judge - don't sign the decree. If the decree says she gets the dog and the Judge has signed the decree then the decree is enforceable. Dogs are considered...Read more »
My dhs lawyer has been going back and forth for almost 3/4 months trying to get the discovery for our case from the courts and they keep beating around the bush. Now they are not even responding to him. I know that the discovery does not have to legally be given out (even though we are entitled to... Read more »
I don't know what discovery the courts would be providing to you. Generally its the opposing party that you are requesting documents/information from and if they fail to comply with discovery requests you file a Motion to Compel. Your DHS attorney probably knows this.
You would need to file a Motion to Modify custody and set it for hearing before the Judge. You should also file for emergency custody if the custodial parent is currently in jail. This can be complicated so I suggest you seek the services of an attorney.
we had a custody change as my child needs to know their siblings, they then lived with biological father at the time he(bio-father) owed over twenty thousand, I was under the understanding his back amount would be reduced from any amount that was asked of me to pay( not the case), my child is now...

Non custodial is behind in child support but is making payments. The visitation is court ordered and is not being denied by non custodial but not being followed by custodial due to no communication at all for the last 4 years, despite non custodial and family reaching out.
Being behind in child support is not a valid reason to withhold visitation if the Court Ordered visitation. A motion to enforce is the usual remedy but a review of the Order from the Court would be necessary. Good Luck!
& does that mean that the person gettong child support for said children could come get my kids from me at any time even tho they are currently enrolled in school where we live (in a different state) plus i have medical etc etc for them

He went to court over the property and won; a quit claim deed was signed over to him and him alone. Is it possible to get half of our... Read more »
You would need to talk to a probate attorney and have them review the court documents that you have. You state that "he went to court and won". If the judge already decided that all of the property should go to your brother it may be too late. However, that makes no sense. If a probate...Read more »

If you were guardian of your mother you could pursue her action on her behalf. Also a Durable Power of Attorney drafted correctly would allow you to proceed on her behalf. You can't "take it into your own hands" as the cause of action belongs to your Mother. Good Luck!
After her death I received some legal papers from an attorney explaining that she had passed away and that our minor child wanted to live with his older step brother. Having had no contact or relationship with the child for 16 of his 17 years I consented to his request only to find out later that... Read more »
If the custodial parent has died and the child is still a minor then you owe the child support arrears to the person who has guardianship over the child or if the child has received benefits from DHS due to your nonpayment of child support you may owe DHS.
