I am 15 years old and have been living in Morocco for a little over a year now. I got here in early October. My guardian has been heavily abusive, both physically and verbally. She takes advantage of us not being in america and has cut my communication with everyone. I have no means of talking to... Read more »
The custody order does not specify who is responsible for pick up or drop off. She refuses to be helpful for pick up or drop off. If I pick up my son, and state that she is able to come pick him up whenever she can, is that illegal if she has majority? I am not telling her she cant access him I am... Read more »
No established custody yet, (new case in court) parent holding twins finds any & every excuse & lie to avoid parenting time & makes threats if others voice opinions on social media also changes what’s allowed at PT. Ref did not say it was supervised but they are saying no other way... Read more »
Possibly. But as I'm sure you know, nothing is going to happen unless and until a judge hears these issues and makes an order that can be enforced. Until then, your daily calls and messages to the other parent will likely continue to be ignored, and could actually backfire on you.
It came to my attention by way of my daughters FOC case that I was being accused of making a false CPS report against my grandsons father.

More likely, referee will simply review the CPS and criminal investigation reports, and may contact those agencies for a status update. Judges and referees are not police or investigators so they are not going to be contacting witnesses directly.

You can certainly tell him to take you to court. If what you're saying about him is true, there sounds like quite a bit of stuff he should work on before spending time and money going to court, but I suppose that's his decision.
Just know, though, that many judges don't look...Read more »
I am waiting on a court date to modify parenting and I am asking to modify parenting time because my daughter doesn’t want to go over her dad house all the time and she doesn’t like how he’s been treating her or the things he have said about me to her I hate having to make her go and here...

You are doing the right thing by filing the motion. Perhaps there is something negative going on that your daughter is afraid of disclosing. Still, your duty is to comply with the parenting time order and continue facilitating her relationship with her father. Typically in these situations with a...Read more »

The police are right: this is a family court matter that needs to be addressed there. If you do not have legal custody of the children, it's possible that with the father dead, the grandparents would become guardians. And even if you have shared legal custody, the best interest of the child...Read more »

It's an uphill battle, but it can be done where the guardianship is terminated. Were your rights terminated - either voluntary or involuntary after a trial? That will determine whether it's a matter of terminating the guardianship or you becoming guardian of your own child.

Can they be found? I'm no expert in crypto so I don't know. The opposing party's attorney, through appropriate discovery demands, could establish that you have or should have a certain dollar amount in assets, whether they are in crypto or not.
My stepson was kicked out by his mother. He now lives with his grandma and he is 17. His mom didn't notify friend of the court about this information, and my husband is still having child support removed from his paycheck. Is it illegal for her to collect this money when he isn't living... Read more »
Child support is for the child, but I can appreciate the frustration. What matters, though, is that the child is not living with you and your husband right now. Should the grandma obtained guardianship, for instance, your husband would still have a child support obligation.
