It is always possible that a court could order visitation to a relative. It is up to the judge to determine if that happens and under what parameters. Speak with a family law attorney, and perhaps the court will appoint an attorney (guardian ad litem) to represent the child's interests....Read more »
There is no real likelihood of asking for and receiving those documents the day of trial. Parties can either subpoena documents or request the other side provide copies in the discovery process.

He could request you return or compensate him for any items that he owned that were taken. If you're served with a lawsuit, talk to an attorney about what you did and didn't take, and whose stuff it was.

Unless the court order says otherwise, every party in a custody case has to give at least 30 days' written notice to the court and the other parties of any intent to move.

That sounds like more than "part time." If the aunt does not have any custodial rights, it might not affect the case, but it may give the other parent some decent arguments for reduced support. Speak with a lawyer who practices family law in the jurisdiction where you filed.
I suggest listening to your attorney who is familiar with the case. Unlike attorneys online, that person has read the court order and is in the best position to advise you. If you want a second opinion, consult with another attorney in person or by phone/email so the attorney can review the...Read more »
I am 17 and my parents have someone essentially spying on me in the neighborhood. They don't approve of my friends down the road and have forbade me from associating with them. Is it legal for them to get other parents to watch me and and my friends when they aren't home? It makes me feel strange... Read more »
Unless this person is stalking you (in a legal sense - putting you in fear of death or injury), there's not much to be done. It's your parents' job to keep you out of trouble, and if this is how they choose to do it, there is likely nothing illegal about it.

It may have been agreed in court, but the real question is, do you have a court order mandating this? First, set an appointment to speak to your attorney in person - he/she is the one who knows the case better than anyone answering questions online.

He can be served by a private process server, or he could be served by publication in a newspaper if the situation is appropriate for that. Talk to a local family law attorney for specific suggestions based on the full facts of your case.
Sounds like they want this year, which by now is already due to the IRS. If it's unclear, please speak to an immigration attorney to review your documents. You don't want to get the case denied for sending in the wrong paperwork.
You may want to get a certified copy of the records from the court. If they show simple speeding (not reckless), you may be able to provide that to DMV to have them correct their records. Talk with a VA traffic attorney if you can't make any headway on your own.
Can't say without seeing the court order. Often it will contain language that says "summer visitation supersedes regular visitation" or "in addition to regular visitation, dad shall have 2 weeks in the summer." You may want to talk to a local family law attorney if it is unclear.
