You do not have a specific right to know the names of the people that she lives with. You do have a right to know that your son is in a safe environment. You always have the option of going to court if you can offer specific allegations regarding the safety of the child.

There is no form; however, if the two of you are in agreement then you should put the agreement in writing and both of you should sign it. As an additional measure, you can file the written agreement with the court.
This is not a simple yes or no answer. Father was responsible for providing health insurance but there is normally also a provision for how "uncovered" medical expenses are paid. It is possible that the father could be liable for the portion that would have been covered by insurance due...Read more »

There's a lot of information in your question and you should probably consult with an attorney for more detaled legal advice. That being said, if there is no child support order, the child support amount has not been legally established and therefore the Father is not violating a court order...Read more »
As an unmarried father you must file with the court to establish your rights to the child. There is no default meaning that it does not happen automatically. Mother has all rights until you go to court.
NCP was supposed to hold medical insurance on a special needs child and never did. The child has since been emancipated and I am looking to collect arrears that are past due?

I am to move into his house and take care of his wife and to have anyone removed if they don't have permission to be there. The wife is not mentally stable to make decisions for her self. Question is can I do all of that without the police getting called and me going to jail for trespassing
The problem is not the police being called, but the fact that if his wife is there and this home is marital, a power of attorney is probably not sufficient to give you authorization over her property. If she has mental capacity and has not been declared incapacitated, a power of attorney on the...Read more »

I know I need to refi to remove him from the debt, but how do we go about the quitclaim deed? Is that done before mortgage refi, at time of refi, or after the refi?... Read more »
The best way is to get the quit claim deed executed now. You will then hold the deed until you refinance at which time it will be filed by whoever handles your closing. This way you do not need to chase down your ex in the future when you need the deed.
