It's not a good idea to post details of a possible crime on a public website. But calling a lawyer with a telephone would be a better way to start. A Minnesota therapist will be a "mandated reporter" to police, of any child abuse disclosed to them. Therefore seeking help could lead... Read more »

The dad is on the birth certificate but there's never been anything that's gone to court and there is no arrangement. He also signed a piece of paper giving me more custody when I had to get medical assistance. My son is 10 now.

If never married, and there is no adjudication of paternity, the mother has sole physical and legal custody. The father has no child support obligation and no right to parenting time, unless and until a court orders it.
We have records showing they were paid by insurance co. As well as other extenuating issues. I think she should have someone helping her with this but she’s on a very limited income.

A Minnesota attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. One option here could be to look into whether pro bono or legal aid resources could assist here, due to your mother's financial hardship. You could also check with the Minnesota Bar Association. You could... Read more »

If the issues is not addressed in the decree, IRS rules govern. The parent with the child the majority of the time gets to claim the child. If both parents have equal time, the parent with higher income claims.
A guardian, his mother does not work, and really does not provide for him.

You could bring a motion for custody as a de facto custodian, if you’ve cared for the child at least six months in the last 24 (need not be consecutive), however the statute also requires that you be the “primary” caregiver. If the child is with you on weekends and with mom during the week,... Read more »
If my kid's mother withholds her is that considered contempt of court My daughter is 11 is she allowed to choose whether she comes to my house or not
answered on Jun 22, 2022
It isn’t generally handles as a contempt issue at this point. You would bring a motion to enforce the decree. If she still withholds her, you could then seek contempt.
You can also ask that she be ordered to pay your attorney fees.
For example. Mother had protection order from the Father. In the divorce decree they agree to a mutual transfer of the children in a public place. Before the divorce decree was final the Father was facing charges of violation of the protection order and the Judge put a DANCO on him pending... Read more »

Basically, yes. Typically the DANCO would be both more specific and more recent. If there is a conflict between a family court order and a DANCO, it would be a good idea to either follow the more restrictive of the two, presumably the DANCO; or and until bring a motion before the judge in the...

I live in Texas, my father lived and died in Minneapolis MN. I want to know if I can use the affidavit for collection of Personal Property to access his bank account, vice filing applying for an informal appointment of a Personal representative?
answered on Feb 9, 2023
The short answer is Yes. The long answer is you must comply with Minnesota Statutes § 524.3-1201. It must be 30 days since your father passed away and there cannot be an open or pending probate case having been filed.
answered on May 29, 2022
It depends upon the language of the Judgment and Decree. If it says nothing, you are generally free to take them. The Decree may still require you to notify the other person and provide contact information for everywhere you’re staying.
Mom changed her mind last minute and is bringing her to grandmas house. Is the dad able to legally have that custody time if the mother is out of state for that week. There is no court ordered custody agreement.

If there is no court-ordered custody or parenting time, dad has no legal rights to time with the child.

answered on Apr 22, 2022
I am assuming that child support was formally established via a paternity order. Did the order also grant parenting time? That will control what you can and cannot do as well as how much time you have with the child.
If there is no paternity order (and child support is thus informal), you... Read more »
Parents are considering divorce. Dad wants max parenting time. Child just turned 1. Would the courts allow the child to have overnights with dad at his new place while the child is still so young?
answered on Apr 15, 2022
There is no prohibition on such overnights, so they are allowed. The question is whether they are advisable.

Your info says you are in Indiana, so Minnesota law isn’t applicable.

Yes, the other possible father could bring a paternity action. Signing the ROP is not a legal adjudication of paternity.
