He says because I don't drive or work and I live with my parents CPS has grounds to take him away. But he drives on a suspended license, doesn't have a job and can't pass a drug test. So my question is this true or is he just trying to scare me?
No, those are not reasons for CPS to remove your child. You staying with an abusive boyfriend would, however, potentially be reason to remove your child as would having your child around a known drug user. If you haven't been to court to establish custody, you have sole custody. Tell him to take...Read more »

You may or may not have grounds to challenge the will. You would be his heir if he had no will, but it is his choice to leave you out of his will if he wishes. You should consult a probate attorney to help you review your options.

No, he has to at least pay child support until she is 18. Then, if she is not in school, he can asked to be relieved of child support. He should also be concerned about truancy issues if she is not attending school.

You should consult an attorney to discuss your options. Many will offer a free consultation. You shouldn't stay in a marriage with an ass. You have options. They may not be easy options, but you have options.
Per the MDA, Health insurance is to be split 50-50 between both parents for our two kids but she is refusing to provide me the information about the health insurance costs.

The court would certainly force her to provide you with the information. Unfortunately, if she is refusing, it may take going to court to get her to provide you with that information. You should consult an attorney.
They should only test for illegal drugs. If they try to use the fact that he takes medications for bipolar to not hire him, then they may violate his rights under the ADA. He should consult an attorney to advise him regarding his rights.

I have never seen an FSW require that a youth get a GED prior to release, but I have seen the court require it. If you are concerned, talk to the FSW's supervisor or better, hire an attorney to ask for your nephew's release.
