I agreed to more than I wanted to under duress. The judge put in an order for the one item (that helped me) but nothing came from the rest. But its just hanging out there. Can I get a lawyer to request it put taken off since it was never approved?
That's a good question. As a general statement, when both parties notify the court that issues in dispute have been settled and they submit a signed writing to the court confirming the settlement terms, the court has the right to enforce those terms even if it has not signed off on the consent...Read more »

You have not provided enough information for any lawyer to give you competent advice. My suggestion is that you schedule a consultation with a divorce lawyer to get better educated on your rights and to help you better understand whether you should be concerned.
I live in New Jersey. I am 25 years old. I just found out that my mother placed a tracking app on my phone called AT&T Secure Family. I heard that it's against the law to put a tracking app on an adult's phone without permission. Can I legally sue?
Let's approach this issue differently for a moment. Let's assume that your mother did install an app on your phone and that it was done without your permission. At age 25, what is it that your mother is going to find out about you that you care less about any longer? I am not trying to...Read more »

If a 16 year old's mom gives permission for them to move into their grandparents house, but their father doesn't, do they need both parents permission, or can they move out with only their moms permission.
As a parent, your question troubles me and the short answer is that there is no good answer to this question. I presume that you are having trouble with one or both of your parents and you are looking for space away from your current home setting. Presuming im correct, the 1st question is what the...Read more »

She just turned 10 and still has her child mentality. He told her everything even with details, she’s been crying and down since she came back from her dad’s house. He didn’t even prepare her or made sure to keep an eye on her and her emotions. She’s not my little happy girl anymore and... Read more »
My guess is that your daughter asked her father something about his mother or how she died, and he responded, telling her the details. You and I were not present when that conversation took place or even if he suggested to her that she may not want to hear the details, but the bottom line is that...Read more »

In the TRO I was granted full custody of our son until we had the final restraining order. Our son's birthday is in a few days and he is asking for 3 hours with him. What legal recourse would I have if he didn't return him back to me?
You are asking the wrong question. You went to court to get a restraining order because of your fear of your ex, which temporary restraining order including a restraint on his contact with your son. Now, you want to agree to permit him to spend several hours with your son on his birthday but to do...Read more »
I cant because I have no idea what issues are outstanding in your matter or what issues could be raised by either of you in a divorce matter without having a consultation with you or your spouse. To do otherwise, invites disaster. My suggestion is that you or your spouse should have a consultation...Read more »
I dont want to come off disrespectfully, but no lawyer can answer the question without having a clear understanding of the issues outstanding to help determine a fair timeline for resolution of your case. As a simple example, if you and your spouse have a clear written agreement resolving all...Read more »
The short answer is that without a consent order permitting both of them to be at the same function together, it is a violation of the restraining order and he can be arrested and criminally charged. My suggestion is that he ( through counsel or through a mutual acquaintance) reach out to the ex...Read more »
My birth certificate has a first , middle and last name. I have always used my middle name as my given name. I am now having problem with an institution that is insisting on using my first name on my birth certificate as my given name and only a initial for my middle on very important documents....

I understand your inquiry but in filling out the forms for the institution, your first name will be identified as "S" and most forms only list the middle as an initial, so the document obtained from this institution may end up looking like S M Doe. Maybe the solution is to hyphenate your...Read more »
I was only about 3-4 and he had a friend or family “remove” him. Not sure about the details on that and I was recently told this. Id like to find a way to claim or sue. It’s not fair he found a loopholes and id like to know if I could also sue by him having friends in the inside.
I think that you have been given incorrect information. Everyday, people file applications with the court system claiming that someone is the father of their child. In response, the court system can require that person to submit to a paternity test to verify that they are the biological parent....Read more »
