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 »
this CASA worker Found some cigarette butts in my closet’s on my patio took a picture and then went to the property manager at my apartments and disclosed that I’ve been smoking on the patio and showed them the pictures she took
CASA stands for "Court Appointed Special Advocate." It is a national program. Some states contribute to its funding, others don't. It receives national funding. If a CASA "volunteer" is involved in your case, it's because a judge appointed them to be involved. If...Read more »

Does your bf have a job? How much are you two paying for your "small room?" Are you going to stay home and raise your daughter? Is your soon-to-be husband going to supporting you and your daughter? Idaho judges are going to ask you those questions. You are going to have to be able to...Read more »
Your Divorce Decree told you to pay Child Support through "Child Support Receipting." If you had done what the court ordered you to do you would be able to have H&W print out a complete record of your payments. However, because you chose to pay it the way YOU wanted, you will be...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 »
My boyfriend and I broke up and demanded that I send him everything back that he gave me including a laptop, stuffed plushes, and anything else. If I didn’t have it he says he wants the money back for those gifts. He lives in California I live in Idaho. He says will take me in front of a judge if... Read more »
“Gifts” are gifts! You have NO legal responsibility to give back ANY gift he gave you. If he’s (petty and stupid) not careful he’ll don’t stupid things like shame you on social media or worse, post your intimate photos on social media, which is a crime called “voyeurism.”
He was 20 and she 16 at birth of child. Hospital reported. Both wish to marry. He's now 22 and set for release, but with 5 year NCO. She's 18 and wants a relationship. They have a 2 year old son together. No contention from family on either side. Can she request it be lifted as a... Read more »
Because the order says that he can and he's current on support. If you wish to change that you need to file to modify the order. Depending on your state domestic laws it may effect the support amount or other items on the order.
Yes. She will need to convince the Court that she has some place to live and some way to support herself and that she’s either got wheels and insurance OR good bus service wherever she (or her baby) needs to go!
Nope! You’d have to notify the parent by sending him a copy of the Petition. It’s called “procedural due process.” No parent’s rights could be terminated without notice to him under the Fourteenth Amendment.
Just recently her phone started to be taken away and shut off at night. I have gotten 3 different responses as to why. I decided to buy her a phone under my plan hoping that it being mine he wouldn’t turn it off and now he is telling me it’s not welcome in his home.... I don’t call or text... Read more »
First, that wish of yours IS reasonable, to know that she can call you anytime, day or night if she’s in trouble or wants to talk to you! Secondly, you ARE out of luck (if step father says no) because this current “dispute” doesn’t constitute a “material, permanent change...Read more »
My husband's ex slapped us with a emergency sole custody modification order and a restraining order using a picture she had my son send her and audio recordings she had my daughter record of my husband and I having a private conversation with my son. Is this legal? Can my daughter give... Read more »
Short answer: in Idaho only one party to a recording must give permission. However, it’s not your daughter that gave consent is it? It’s your husband’s ex-wife. So yes SHE can do that, but why does it matter to you? What was depicted in the photo? A little more information please?
Long-standing rule in my house (and in my sister’s house for cousins) is that you get a phone when you’re 10. My older daughter (not ex’s bio child) got a reg phone at age 10 (while I was still with ex). Ex told me that he bought it and it will be used at my house “end of discussion”. I... Read more »
Idaho has created an entire section in the code dealing with "at risk" youth. If you follow the statutory scheme, you would simply call the police and report what you're concerned about. Officers with any experience at all, will come visit with you and make a report. They will...Read more »
