Joshua Damberg's answer Generally, the answer to this is no. The Principal should not need to be present for his or her Attorney(s)-in-Fact to use the Power of Attorney document. In light of the recent epidemic of misuse of POAs and the exploitation of the elderly, many banks have attempted to institute additional policies and layers of red tape. So long as the Power of Attorney was validly executed, the bank SHOULD recognize it. You and/or your cousin may need to push back against bank policy and make the institution...
Jonathan Matthew Holson's answer The County Attorney for the county where the offense occurred makes any charging decisions about whether to move forward with charging the matter out. I am assuming that there must be some valid reason why he or she is choosing not charge the case.
D. Patrick McCullough's answer The Judge cannot deny you the right to withdraw your Petition; however, I am guessing your spouse served and filed a Counter-Petition and if so she can proceed on her Counter-Petition over your objection.
D. Patrick McCullough's answer If there is no court Order, and he is the father of the children, each of you have the right to have the children and equally each of you can "take" the children anytime each of you wants, until there is a court Order designating what days each of you have. Is he harmful to the children or is there some other reason you do not wish for him to have the children?
D. Patrick McCullough's answer A substantial change in financial circumstances can be a basis to change a child support obligation. I would need to know much more to give you a complete answer. You would need to bring a motion in order to lower support(unless your X agreed). You should talk with an atty to help you.
D. Patrick McCullough's answer You may not wish to cancel any appointments until you first consult with the counselor to see if your children need counseling; however, unless your Divorce Decree provides otherwise, if you have joint Physical and Legal custody, your X should not enroll your children in counseling without your consent.
Lisa Watson Cyr's answer There is no stated age upon which a child is able to decide who they want to live with; however, the reasonable preference of a child is one of the factors the Court will consider in determining what is in the child's best interest. As the child gets older and more mature, the child's preference may be given greater weight by the Court as to the issues of custody and parenting time.
Lisa Watson Cyr's answer To seek relief from a child support obligation, your friend should bring a motion to modify or suspend the child support order during the period he will not be earning an income.
D. Patrick McCullough's answer Re: health Ins for your daughter, it depends upon what your Judgment and Decree says re: that issue. If it is silent concerning the health ins(which I doubt)then you will need to either amend the JD to cover that issue re: an agreement with your X and absent an agreement, with a court hearing re: the same. In any event, you absolutely should be the person to be contacted in case of an emergency and not his girlfriend and you also should be able to contact the Ins co and be able to give and...
D. Patrick McCullough's answer That depends upon many factors, most important, in Minnesota if you do not bring a Motion to extend or at least reserve the issue of SM before the date for termination of SM in your JD, you may forever be barred from continuing the SM. You need to contact a family law atty ASAP
