Just want to show that to the judge. Also is sunburn really enough to keep an active father from his children for almost a... Read more »
However, the property is in both of our names. Infidelity on his part has caused me to research my potential options going forward and I would like to discuss my legal options. We have two innocent children involved in this mess as well. We live with his parents in one county (the same one we were... Read more »
The issues you raise are complex ones, and detailed answers would require a more in-depth review of your situation. It is possible, once a divorce is filed, to get through the process amicably and with little effect on the children. However, that largely depends on the respective postures of you...Read more »
They were supposed to send me paperwork by email however they never did they took the time to meet my dog so they knew I was staying there as well as it had a pet but the money for my deposit on the dog and for adding me to the lease just sat untouched in the account my roommate and I are not...

If you have proof that they agreed to add you to the lease (e.g. e-mails stating this, or something along those lines) you may be able to prove in court that you had an agreement and should be able to stay.
Assuming you share custody with the other parent, you have a right to know about medical emergencies pertaining to your child. If the party is regularly withholding information from you, you can consider filing an action for contempt against them.
If she was your girlfriend (and not your wife), then in theory she has no right to stay there beyond your permission, and she must leave when you notify her. However, in practice, a court may find that because she has lived there for a long time and established a residence, she may be under a...Read more »
Generally, the answer is no. The exception would be where the is a TRUE emergency or the child's health or safety is at immediate risk. However, courts set the bar high on this and will generally look with skepticism at any party's attempts to withhold a child, so the situation needs to...Read more »
My kids left door open and dog has gotten loose multiple times. When landlord confronted my husband he cussed them out. They also said we play music too loud even though the sheriff said it wasnt too loud when he was called
This would largely depend on what is stated in your lease. It is possible that your lease could contain "nuisance" provisions, which would prohibit things like letting pets out, playing loud music, disturbing neighbors, etc. If so then it is possible your landlord could try to evict on...Read more »
You should consider speaking with Indiana Legal Services (https://www.indianalegalservices.org/) or the Indianapolis Bar Pro Bono Program (https://www.indybar.org/). If you live in a county other than Marion, then contact your local court and see if they can provide you with information on local...Read more »
(home, recreational property, 401Ks, etc.). Minor child just turned 17 years old. I need to start the divorce process. How should I proceed/what do I do? Covid 19 protocol for face to face meetings with a lawyer? I never thought it would come to this.
I am sorry to hear about your situation. The divorce process begins with the filing of a petition with the court, and the issuance of a summons to the other party. However, because there are substantial assets involved, and this process can be quite complex, I would strongly recommend that you sit...Read more »
Child custody determinations are made based on what is in the best interests of the child; however, there are no hard and fast rules as to what would lead to a modification, as much of that is in the discretion of the judge. Based on the circumstances you've described, though, it is clear that...Read more »
You and the father can write up your agreement and submit it to the court (check with the court clerk to see if they have templates you can use). If the agreement meets with the court's approval, the judge will sign off on it and make it an order. However, you may want to consider seeking the...Read more »
I am unsure how to properly fill out several sections of the documents required, such as the summons and divorce decree section. I would love some assistance so that it is done properly before I submit it to my county courthouse.
You need to use whatever your legal last name is at this time. Also, I would highly recommend that you seek assistance from an experienced divorce attorney. While the courts do allow parties to go through this process without representation, generally this is not DIY territory.
It depends. If the parents have significant issues (history of abuse, etc.), then you may be able to file against the mom to either give you primary custody or ask the judge for an order restricting the children from being around them.
She then told him that the place she moved into was not fit to live in. So she told him if he moves out of his apartment and pays for the rent he will at least know where his kids are. She now lives in his apartment he pays the rent and anything the kids need and want. He is afraid of losing his... Read more »
If he does not have a custody order in place he should definitely seek one out immediately. That it the only thing that would give him enforceable parenting time with the children. Without that, there is little to stop the mother from leaving again with the children.
If the opposing party filed a motion to strike, it usually means that something was filed on the case (such as a document, letter, motion, etc.), that they are asking the court to remove from the record.
