My biological father died, I'do not know him, never met him yet his wife put my name in his obituary even after I asked her to remove it she did not and it was published without my permission. They lived in NC,
Most if not all funeral homes allow the immediate family to write the obituary. And I have never heard of any funeral home that in any way edits any obituary written by the immediate family. However, why not try?
Moreover, once the obituary is written and published in some local newspaper...Read more »

Regarding the "contract" you made with your mother, it's not a valid, enforceable contract (even had you signed a proper signature). Minors do not have the legal capacity to enter into contracts, and even if you were an adult, the contract would not be valid for other reasons....Read more »

My ex is going to serve me for paternity soon and i just want to have my court cases done in Broward County. I haven't been served yet could i move to Broward County? Also can i move if i do get served?
Yes, you can move, but if you were residing in your current county when the suit was filed, moving won't enable you to request a change of venue. Yes, you can always move. If you had the child with you moving the child with you would not be allowed (absent a court order allowing it), but I...Read more »
I live in Florida, my mother lives in Arkansas with my disabled 40yr old sister. My mother has guardianship and we all agree its time for me to take on the care of my sister. What do i need to do and where do i start?
It appears you will need to start by looking for family lawyers in Arkansas to start this process. You will also need a Florida family lawyer too; between the two of them it should be a fairly smooth transition--at least on the legal side.

Yes, you can still leave unless he first files a lawsuit for visitation or custody. When he kids have been in Georgia for six months, assuming he hasn't filed by then, jurisdiction would be in that state.
I have already e-filed: (1) family cover sheet, (2) Petition (with me as petitioner; notarized, signed by me & spouse), (3) notice of related cases (for me), and (4) answer to petition (signed/notarized by my spouse). We are keeping settlement agreement private. There are no children. Both live... Read more »

Lawyers are very intelligent am constrained by a fundamental law of the universe (no one can foretell the future) and unable to opine on your current dilemma and highly trained professionals--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls. Try it and see if it works.

I can understand you personal concerns; however, there are far too many possibilities and "what ifs" for any lawyer to be able to advise you what to do. There is NOTHING you can do right now; so why not wait and see what happens NEXT?
