She needs it because she has primary custody of the child, right? You "need" it because you have mostly made the payments on it, right? You don't also happen to own a pickup that YOU drive, do you? I'm sorry, this sounds S E L F I S H to me and a divorce judge will...Read more »
My son has lived with his grandmother most of his life and she has custody of him. I have recently amended things and have been in contact with my son and grandmother. He is now 17. I have not had custody since I gave him up when he was a baby as I could not care for him. The other parent is... Read more »
Your son will be an "adult" probably by the time you read this and you won't need to do anything. However, if you're aching to pay a lawyer to do something, you need only make a phone call to the grandmother and say, "hey grandma, since we have agreed to let my son come...Read more »
Ex moved to Arizona, I live with kids in Idaho. He gets alternating Thanksgiving and Christmas break, supposed to be 7 days for each. The kids are now in school &only get 4 days for Thanksgiving. Can he take the other 3 days and put them on his next Christmas visit? Would a judge allow this?
IF I were a smart-ass, I would say "is this worth $3,500 to figure out?" But, since I'm not a smart ass and want to be very "real" with you, let me say that you should consider a few things, as follows:
1. Have you and your ex-husband been adhering to the...Read more »
Several ways. First does ex have a lawyer? The Rules say that service on the lawyer IS service to your ex; second, if you know what state and city he lives in, your attorney can draft a motion for publication of Summons and if approved by the court, your papers will be deemed "served"...Read more »

I feel I have been wrongfully alienated from my sons. They are now adopted by thier paternal grandparents, to which I know that my sons will have to seek me when they come of age. With that being said I feel they took advantage of me, had me sign my rights over unwillingly, and had alienated me... Read more »
Once the adoption took place, water passed under the bridge and there's no going back. Your desires to see them notwithstanding, you should not bother the paternal grandparents and NEVER make an attempt to see your sons. If they're curious when they come of age, they will seek you out,...Read more »
Yes, and judges will approve because courts are willing to acquiesce (notice I didn't say "approve") to people "doing their own thing," I'd be lying if I told you that they're happy about it. When those "private agreements" don't work between the...Read more »
There must be two witnesses but I couldn't find a single, reported appeal to refer to. So I will just tell you that depending on how long you have been married you might be able to seek an annulment? But since annulment isn't guaranteed, but a divorce is, why not simply divorce him?
Of course it is "legal," but shouldn't be. There SHOULD be a law prohibiting both parents from slandering or saying anything about the other parent to the children. This is called "alienation of affection," and it does more harm to children than any other kind of abuse...Read more »

We've had 2 welfare checks and 1 cps visit in the last month regarding our children. Both the cops and the cps worker told us the kids have nothing like whats being reported. It is extreamly stressful.
If you knew WHO (for certain) was making false charge calls (that’s the key) then a police officer might take a report from you for “disturbing your peace” or “filing a false police report,” both of which are misdemeanors!
I just had a default judgment against me and lost custody to my daughter for a court date I never even knew existed. It says I was served by mail. I never received anything in the mail regarding this. How is this property way to serve someone? Is this legal in Idaho? How can they get a judgment... Read more »
