I'm wondering if this is child endangerment and if I, as the 18 y/o sister of the children and step daughter of the parent, can press charges or what kinds of legal action I can take. There are other recurring problems in the household but this recent act, as well as other verbal insults and... Read more »

In a word, no, because the California courts will not have jurisdiction over either the conservatee or the conservator. You will need to contact an attorney where the conservatee now resides. Good luck to you. This is a difficult situation.
You do not need a conservatorship until the child turns 18. The conservatorship then will allow you to still continue to make all of their decisions for them as you care for them. The process takes 3 or 4 months so start early. Many places can provide you with help at that time; here in San...Read more »
He pays monthly child support; deducted from paycheck. I found him on Facebook and sent him copy of son’s hospital bill; been 35 days and zero response. Is he in Contempt of Court? What are my next steps? Thank you!
If the insurance is State funded, you can contact the Attorney General to enforce the Court Order. Otherwise, you need to hire a lawyer to file a Motion to Enforce the Child Support Order. He can be served out of State with the Motion to Enforce. Eventually, the Court could hold him in contempt....Read more »
If you are filing the declaration by itself then you can use MC030 for the first page and MC031 for each additional page. White out the "1 of 1" page number in the bottom right corners and put your own, for example "1 of 4" and then "2 of 4", and so on.
He won't let me speak to them and he monitors conversations between my parents and the children. He had them enrolled in school and everything.

Often CPS and the courts ask the parents to do things like drug test and attend classes to make sure the parent is committed to ensuring the children's safety and well being. Often success requires cooperating with CPS and showing them that you are all about the kids.
My wife and I have been married for a year I currently reside in Sacramento California and she lives down in Los Angeles she has a 3 year old son. Her and the kids father have a joint custody agreement where the mother has the son the majority of the time.
There are several interesting legal issues here. What was the partnership agreement's conditions on what happens in the event of a death? Was there any consideration given to whom your partner's share of the business will go to? Was their share to be assumed by their estate? Is he interfering with...Read more »
No, it shouldn't be. It sounds like an emergency, so the Court should hear you on an emergency basis, which usually means within two business days or less, provided you have proof of the use; or other evidence -- like declaration(s) from eyewitnesses who saw the drug use; an admission from the...Read more »

It depends on whether your power of attorney is durable, whether your authority under that power of attorney is effective immediately or only upon incapacity, and the express powers given to you. It also depends on whether that power of attorney remains effective or has been revoked.

Hi petitioner filed for separation of marriage (FL100) and then filed motion to dismiss 20 days later. Do I need to file a response if petitioner filed motion to dismiss shortly after she filed for separation of marriage?
A motion to dismiss? If she filed a petition and you have not yet responded, all she needs to file is a Request for Dismissal. It is not a motion and there is no hearing. If the case is dismissed, you do not need to file your response. If she filed an actual motion and there is a hearing date...Read more »
