We had to move MIL into our home for her last two years. Can I bill the estate for 23 months of round the clock care at a reasonable $500 per month. There was a verbal agreement, but as I was her financial POA at the time and I didn't think it was appropriate to pay myself at that time. Now... Read more »
My mother and her fiance have decided that they think I'm playing favorites so they are using that as a reason to not let me see the ones that want to see me also. The one they think I'm not showing attention to doesn't want to be involved with me due to manipulation about me by my... Read more »
He used marital funds to purchase equipment for the business, and I have copies of the checks verifying that. On the financial affidavit, he claims that the business started after separation and he used his own money. Can I use the checks to verify that his business started before separation? Is...

Seems like the answer could depend on when the business entity (if there is one) was actually formed. If it wasn't formed (created) with the Secretary of State until after you separated, then there is an argument that the business wasn't marital. However, if that is the case, then you...Read more »
Unfortunately, you likely aren't going to get a clear answer on this type of forum. I would highly suggest that you DON'T try and handle your pre-nup on your own, and instead at least consult with a local family law attorney. I will say that the pre-nup might not have much that is...Read more »

I asked my ex-husband if he could watch our two kids on July 13 when I go out of town for work (a day trip). He told me no, that he would do nothing extra. He will only see them every other weekend and every other Thursday for dinner. I asked about his two weeks in the summer that is in the child... Read more »
The court CAN'T make someone care more about their children, or want to have additional time with them. I suppose it is possible that you could rework your custody schedule so that he has 124 overnights per year (which would change his child support...Read more »
If you think that your mother can no longer care for herself, then you need to file for guardianship of your mother. This is not a simple process and I would encourage you to get the help of a local attorney.
The funds in the checking account at the time of death are part of your father's estate. Because this money was transferred after death, it becomes much harder to determine the ownership.

There are a couple of questions that will need to be answered before I can give you specific advice. Did your grandfather adopt you as well?
