Marjorie A Bristol's answer What is your question? If your question is do you have a cause of action against her, then the answer is no. She has the right to choose to divorce someone. I am so sorry about your brother. A love one's suicide is so hard. Mental illness was the cause of your brother's suicide, not your sister-in-law's request for a divorce.
Marjorie A Bristol's answer What is the case set for? Trial? Hearing on a motion? Without knowing more, it is impossible to answer. I highly recommend that you consult an attorney and ask the court for more time to hire a lawyer.
Marjorie A Bristol's answer Yes, if you have had sex, you could be guilty of statutory rape if there is 4 years between your ages. Your best bet is to wait until she turns 18 and not post any more information on public forums.
Marjorie A Bristol's answer That depends on what the order giving you custody says. It is better to go back to court. Otherwise, if something happens and the court or DCS removes your grandchild from your daughter, they may not give her back to you.
Marjorie A Bristol's answer You cannot legally move out without your parents' consent until you turn 18. However, as a practical matter, it may be difficult for law enforcement to find you to take you home before your 18th birthday.
Marjorie A Bristol's answer If he has a job, he can be forced to pay child support. He probably cannot be held responsible for working full time if he is still in school since his school attendance is required by law. Did you obtain legal custody of the baby? Because otherwise, your daughter is the legal custodian of the baby.
Marjorie A Bristol's answer No, not necessarily. The fact that the mom lives with her father may not play a big role in custody. You should consult an attorney to look at all of the facts to advise you regarding your legal options.
