This is hearbreaking. You should consult with your family members to seek financial assistance and assert your rights. You need to get involved with the CPS case. Even if you can not get a lawyer you should at least contact CPS to let them know that you need to have information on what is going...Read more »

You can not force a parent to visit. You can file for child support and then that person is responsible whether he visits or not. The Attorney General assists with establishing child support orders. Connect with them.

Since before she can remember she has been in and out of homeless shelters, being evicted and staying in hotels, I believe it is in her best interest to be emancipated and stay with me until she is older because her Situation is very unstable and her father is very possessive

Contact a lawyer right away and provide them with all of the orders from the court. If you do not have them then they should obtain copies from the court. Your parental rights outweigh sister in law's rights. However, if you do not act right away then you are compromising your case. Good luck.

My parents convinced me to relinquish my rights when I was 18. I stayed living with them to raise my daughter for 15 years. I am now married and living on my own and they will not allow my daughter to live with me. Is there anything I can do to get my daughter back with me?
You only mention that you relinquished your rights. Is it possible that your daughter was not formally "adopted"? If not, then you may have parental rights as they may not have even filed any documentation with the court. If they have formally adopted her then that will be a harder road to...Read more »
Gathering all of your evidence about your current income and how it has changed from the intial determination is where you should start. If it has changed substantially then you probably won't be able to stop any increases. In case you have had another child since the initial order be sure to...Read more »
