I need to know if he Can do this because I’m in treatment & he has done this ever since we found out about the reoccurrence in my bones last holiday season. I’ve been back in treatment since then & this is constant. I can’t argue with him in case he actually does this. Thanks
The court cannot interfere in a marriage unless someone files for divorce or separation. So, he can take you off his insurance. The fact that he had threatened to do that while you are battling this illness probably tells you what should happen next. You should speak to an attorney immediately...Read more »
My ex husband and I have had joint custody of my daughter since we divorced 7 years ago. However, I have had primary custody of her legally. My daughter has expressed interest in living with her dad during the week, which is fine, as long as I still have my time with her. I have always had her... Read more »
I'm assuming your husband is your daughter's step-father. The biological and legal father's parental rights must be terminated as part of an adoption. These are very complicated matters that require representation by an attorney.
It’s stapled to a contempt of court filing for visitation . The petitioner is the other grandparent and the joint custody order is not even with her but her son. How is it that there is a domestic relations standing order that I never was made aware of?

A person can file any lawsuit they want against whoever they want. However, whether that lawsuit is successful and warrants merit is another matter. Further, filing frivolous lawsuits can result in severe sanctions. Thus, consult an attorney before you file any type of lawsuit.
If there is a valid, final or temporary custody order, or the equivalent of a valid, final or temporary custody order included within a divorce decree, and said order gives the father joint custodial rights or visitation rights, then the father should file a motion for contempt to enforce the order.
My baby's father is not legitimized. He has been harassing me everyday since I left him. I stopped texting him back a week ago. My baby is two months old.

If the baby's father is not legitimized he has no custodial rights. However, once legitimized, a court may later hold it against you for restricting contact between the child and the father. Albeit, 400 messages seems excessive.
