I agreed to more than I wanted to under duress. The judge put in an order for the one item (that helped me) but nothing came from the rest. But its just hanging out there. Can I get a lawyer to request it put taken off since it was never approved?
That's a good question. As a general statement, when both parties notify the court that issues in dispute have been settled and they submit a signed writing to the court confirming the settlement terms, the court has the right to enforce those terms even if it has not signed off on the consent...Read more »

I lived with and took care of my daughter at my aunts for the first 3 years but my aunt kicked me out due to lack of space.

YOU NEED TO IMMEDIATELY MEET WITH A DIVORCE LAWYER WHO REGULARLY HANDLES CUSTODY DISPUTES AND GRANDPARENT VISITATION CASES TO GET AN EDUCATION ON THE APPLICABLE BODY OF LAW GOVERNING YOUR TYPE OF MATTER.

Your question is not one that is easily resolved. You really need to have an in person consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney, who has extensive domestic violence trial experience.

You have not provided enough information for any lawyer to give you competent advice. My suggestion is that you schedule a consultation with a divorce lawyer to get better educated on your rights and to help you better understand whether you should be concerned.
I live in New Jersey. I am 25 years old. I just found out that my mother placed a tracking app on my phone called AT&T Secure Family. I heard that it's against the law to put a tracking app on an adult's phone without permission. Can I legally sue?
Let's approach this issue differently for a moment. Let's assume that your mother did install an app on your phone and that it was done without your permission. At age 25, what is it that your mother is going to find out about you that you care less about any longer? I am not trying to...Read more »
If a 16 year old's mom gives permission for them to move into their grandparents house, but their father doesn't, do they need both parents permission, or can they move out with only their moms permission.
As a parent, your question troubles me and the short answer is that there is no good answer to this question. I presume that you are having trouble with one or both of your parents and you are looking for space away from your current home setting. Presuming im correct, the 1st question is what the...Read more »

She just turned 10 and still has her child mentality. He told her everything even with details, she’s been crying and down since she came back from her dad’s house. He didn’t even prepare her or made sure to keep an eye on her and her emotions. She’s not my little happy girl anymore and... Read more »
My guess is that your daughter asked her father something about his mother or how she died, and he responded, telling her the details. You and I were not present when that conversation took place or even if he suggested to her that she may not want to hear the details, but the bottom line is that...Read more »

Yes submission of knowingly false information to the government is a criminal act. The possible maximum penalties are quite severe. I suggest you speak to an attorney with experience in handling federal criminal acts.
In the TRO I was granted full custody of our son until we had the final restraining order. Our son's birthday is in a few days and he is asking for 3 hours with him. What legal recourse would I have if he didn't return him back to me?
You can call the police if that happens. But despite your situation, you both really need to protect the child and not worry about the worst. Too many people forget that parents, just because they are no longer right for each other, still love their children.
I dont want to come off disrespectfully, but no lawyer can answer the question without having a clear understanding of the issues outstanding to help determine a fair timeline for resolution of your case. As a simple example, if you and your spouse have a clear written agreement resolving all...Read more »

Thank you for your question. Your Final Judgment of Divorce or (if your case settled) Marital Settlement Agreement should have a definition of emancipation within it. Often the definition will say the child support is not to extend past the child's 23rd under any circumstance and if the said...Read more »
The short answer is that without a consent order permitting both of them to be at the same function together, it is a violation of the restraining order and he can be arrested and criminally charged. My suggestion is that he ( through counsel or through a mutual acquaintance) reach out to the ex...Read more »
My birth certificate has a first , middle and last name. I have always used my middle name as my given name. I am now having problem with an institution that is insisting on using my first name on my birth certificate as my given name and only a initial for my middle on very important documents.... Read more »
I understand your inquiry but in filling out the forms for the institution, your first name will be identified as "S" and most forms only list the middle as an initial, so the document obtained from this institution may end up looking like S M Doe. Maybe the solution is to hyphenate your...Read more »

My USC husband might refuse to go the interview because we filed jointly but he has been cheating that I found out about later. I confronted him but a few months ago when I confronted again he got mad and said he will divorce me soon. Didn't do anything its... Read more »
There is so much happening based on what you have indicated that it would be best if you found a lawyer to talk with. The USC can't be forced to go to the 751 interview and if he divorces you and sends the decree to USCIS the application is...Read more »

Thank you for your question. In most cases, a parent must obtain consent or a Court Order to permanently remove a child outside of the State of NJ if NJ is the home state of the child. In the event she left without permission, than you would need to file an action in Court to compel her to return....Read more »
