My friends mom said she has no problem with me... Read more »
I am sorry for your having to go through this. However, yes your mother can call the cops. Also, your friend's mother could be could be charged with harboring a runaway which is a crime. Your friend's mother could file a petition for dependency and neglect if the abuse rises to that level.
Ok, that is a little better. If Grandmother got custody, then it was a dependent and neglect petition for which you were entitled to both a preliminary hearing and the appointment of an attorney. You need to follow your attorney's advice.
She is threatening him with child support court and saying he will be in jail all because he wants to see his son and she is scared he will catch the virus. She isn't allowing him to pick his son up this weekend and she didnt give him his 1/2 of spring break. This is not this first time she has... Read more »
My mother had custody of my 2 daughters because I was incarcerated but when I got out of jail, I got full custody back. My mom received family first. Why does the child support office only come after me to pay the state back and not their father?
He can try, but if the issue is no greater than what you have stated, he would have a very weak case. I suggest you consult with an experienced local family law attorney to help you discern your best options.
A termination of parental rights was signed thru an agency before baby was born, upon realizing the child was his he has changed his mind and wants to father the child. He was not present when the birth certificate was signed. Mother can still revoke decision until 23rd but would rather not
He's my dad. he murdered my mom. I have reason to believe he is not my biological father and want to know and if he is not then remove his name from my birth certificate and tell the state of TN he's been lying abt everything (even more than we knew already)
Depending on your age, you can file a petition to disestablish paternity. If you are not of age, another person, particularly another family member can file on your behalf as a "next friend." However, I do not advise taking such action without first consulting an experienced family law attorney in...Read more »
I suggest you retain a local family law attorney. If he has been absent for more than two years and there are children of the marriage you have grounds for abandonment. You probably have other grounds as well.
The children were taken to TN supoosed to be temporary for their fathers funeral but their older brother from a previous relationship from their father, is trying to keep them and get full custody . I signed a custody agreement that the grandfather made himself and had notarize that they will be... Read more »
You need to hire an experienced family law attorney from around Nashville. There are several issues presented in your question that you most likely cannot address without legal representation.

my husband used a fake birth certificate and a fake social security card When we got married April 11 2003 in Burnsville NC and I found this out and I've not been able to find anyone that can help me I just need to know if I am married or do I need to get a divorce
Whether you want a divorce or annulment is yours. It is possible to bring either action with the assistance of an experienced family law attorney. Fraud can be the basis for either action, but there are many other things to take into consideration. Are there any minor children? What are the...Read more »
I am 80 years old and have just found out that the birth certificate father is not the real father. I know the real father, but he refuses to be tested. I have written and called him. He does not reply or hangs up. What is my next step? My daughter, who is 52, is anxious to know the truth. She... Read more »
I am afraid you cannot. An action to establish paternity is governed by Tennessee Code Annotated § 36-2-306. An action to establish parentage may be brought before or after the birth of the child until three (3) years after the age of majority. Therefore, the action must have been brought on or...Read more »
