My ex, his mother and girlfriend stole my house and business. Bigamy was not even a second thought to them. purjury was a every hearing thing for my ex. Never went back after my daugther and i reunited. What do i do now??i have never been heard. I need help
The status of your case is not clear. You say you had a 730 evaluation and you also say you are already divorced. You also say you and your daughter are "reunited". What do you mean "what do I do now" and what do you need help with? Did you get custody of your daughter in...Read more »
So my sister is 17 and we’ve been fighting a lot. I’m 20 and she tells me if I get into a physical altercation with her she’ll press charges. We live in the same house but the address on my ID is different. Can I get into trouble for physically fighting with her? I also have a daughter so if... Read more »

It is true that you cannot obtain a power of attorney from a person who is incapacitated. You need to petition the court to have someone appointed as the incapacitated person's legal conservator and guardian.
My wife and I were awarded PMC placement of her cousin with the child's mother retaining parental rights. The mother is under the impression at the age of 15 the child can simply choose to move back in with her. Is that correct or would she have to file for custody and go through the courts?
She would not have the right to choose, but if an attorney in a custody dispute files a Motion for Judge to Confer with child and the child is age 12 or older, then the Judge is required to meet with the child and hear what he or she has to say. The Judge is not bound by the child's...Read more »
He has domestic violence charges and left our house 6 months ago, no mortgage payments from him he said that since he is not living here he is not obligated to make payments. He only deposits money for our son. We agree to dissolve the marriage but we don’t agree on the child support amount... Read more »
You can't dissolve the marriage unless both parties agree on all details. He doesn't agree, so file for divorce and ask for occupancy of the premises, temporary spousal support to pay household expenses, and child support. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local divorce attorney to...Read more »
He doesn't show up for court so I don't know if he even knows that he's been ordered to pay me. I am trying to do this without a lawyer since it is so expensive and the money actually is owed to my daughter (for reimbursing tuition) and the legal fees would almost be as much as he... Read more »
You may be able to obtain this type of order from the court, but as you were advised by the judge, you'll need to do it properly, and you will need to be able to prove that your ex-husband was served. If your ex-husband has failed to comply with the provisions of prior orders, he could be held...Read more »
I moved out of state and my wife filed for divorce with our three children in her custody. I counter petitioned because her papers were mostly blank and didn't feel comfortable responding in any other way. However I did not ask for custody of the children and now I want to fight for them. How... Read more »
The settlement says to take me off of the loan of the house in a "reasonable amount" of time. It has been almost 8 years. She refuses to take my name off the house. How do I start the process of taking my name off of the mortage?
Your remedy is to file a contempt motion against her for willfully violating the terms of the divorce decree. 8 years is way more than a "reasonable" time to get you off the loan. If she claims she doesn't qualify to refinance it, the Court will likely order it sold so you will be...Read more »

We were never married and we have never done any legal custody stuff, I just let him see her whenever he wants too, which isn’t very often. When I asked he said no just to spite me saying he never wanted her to ever see my family. Do I need his permission or can I take her to meet my dad anyway?... Read more »
MI CPS wanted me to participate in a program that required 10 hours/week and A person from the program told me it was voluntary and later said that cps could make it mandatory & cps worker told me that if I said no that they could take me to court to force me to comply or to take my daughter.... Read more »
I'm unsure what facts were inaccurate. It sounds like CPS told you either 1) do this program, or 2) we'll file a petition that could lead to removal of the child. You choose not to do the program, and so they filed a petition along with an ex parte removal order.
