If my daughter's biological father has expressed multiple times (I've saved the messages passed back and forth) that he doesn't want to be in her life or have anything to do with her, and he doesn't pay child support, he isn't on the birth certificate and has never been associated as her father on...

We are also both liable for upgrades to the house that we made before the divorce. The decree does not specifically state that the house needs to be refinanced in his name only or sold. If one of us can't make payments, will there be a foreclosure? Will one of us owe money somewhere? My credit... Read more »
If you did not have a Deed of Assumption signed at the time of the decree, your credit would be in jeopardy, because both of you would have joint obligations for the mortgage. Your ex would have to refinance and at that time remove your name from the mortgage.

The statutory time is 90 days in the County for legal residency, but if you went to the Philippines on duty in the Military, the time away is considered temporary. As such you could immediately utilize the Court system.
my husband refinanced his home a few years ago adding me to the deed of trust/mortgage. I was present and signed all the new loan agreements. However, I am being told I am not on the deed or title. Several people I know in real estate, as well as my divorce attorney, seem to have the understanding... Read more »
Your husband probably added you to the note for the lenders' security purposes only. To be placed on the deed as an owner, your spouse would have filed a Special Warranty Deed transferring to himself and you title to the property as community property.
The husband took the daughter and ran off to another city and refused to return her. The protective order was signed after he had taken the daughter. Law enforcement in the city he took her to won't do anything without a Writ of attachment. If she gets the Writ of attachment will the cops go... Read more »
Once you get a writ of attachment, the officer will retrieve the child and contact you or your attorney to pick up the child at the police station or a secured place. The officer will search other places for the child if a charge of kidnapping been accepted by the DA.
Your husband does not have the legal power to put you and the kids out of the home. This would be true even if the home was his separate property. If you file for a divorce request the Court for Temporary Orders for possession of the home.

The baby's father does not help with nothing. He signed the birth certificate then denied being the father. The court ordered a DNA we are waiting on results. They go back to court next month. She can not afford a lawyer. How can I do the leg work myself. I'm pretty good at stuff like that.

I suggest that you do the survey. The survey will determine the ownership of the fence by statute of limitation or land ownership. It is nice to work thing out amicably, but if you can't then the first option will be best.
