Mother was sexually involved with 2 men, not married to either, but lives with Man A. A prenatal DNA test was done and the results state Man B is the father. Mother states that she is moving forward as if the baby belongs to Man A. Can she refuse to allow a second DNA test with Man B upon the birth... Read more »
Yes, she can refuse and then man B can get the Court to force her to comply. Of course, unless man B plans to try and obtain custody of the child, all man B is really doing is setting himself up for 18 potential years of paying child support.

He called bank and the bank told my son your father took it out for bills and can do whatever he wanted your still under him . He has his own account... Read more »
Yes, perfectly legal. Which is why you should never have a joint account with anyone. Ever. Unless of course you have no problem with the joint account holder possibly taking all your money. Your son should consider opening his own account, assuming he is competent to manage his money.

There are many ways to handle your daughter's ex - assuming you want to limit things to the legal ways. You should have a hearing on the DVPO and if you hire an attorney and keep your cool at the hearing, it will likely be dismissed and problem solved. So go consult with a local family law...Read more »
My parents are divorced and my father forced me to pack all my things and make me leave and go to my moms house. I have siblings still at his house and I want to go back but my father won’t let me. Is this legal?
This is a job within the court system similar to that of a social worker. It is not an elected position and is likely intended to be more of a way for the Court to relieve Judge's and Court Clerk personnel of the burden of having to directly deal with Pro Se filers. At this point, I believe only...Read more »
Unintelligible means 'impossible to understand. I did not mean for you to think you are unintelligent. As to the phone, yes, you as the parent can control what property your child possesses. So you may take the phone from the child. However, you should return it to the grandmother.
I live in the state of Nc. I was with my ex for 2.5 years. Never married. We adopted a dog together but the paperwork is in his name only. When I left the house (almost 30 days ago) he said in front of two police officers that I was allowed to take the dog with me. He is now emailing me that I have... Read more »
I want to leave my parent's house.. They're manipulative, they don't care about my feelings, the mentally abuse me, etc.. I can't stay here.. I know someone that will take me in, but they're afraid to go to jail.. They said if it was legal.. They would.. I'm 17.. I can't wait another 10 months of... Read more »
At 18, it is not called 'running away' it is just called 'leaving your parents house' - which is something you are suppose to do. Until then you need to stop whining and suck it up and deal with it like everyone else. Best of luck.
Yes, if there was a marriage, he theoretically can file as a "dependent spouse" for what is called post spousal support. He'd probably need to consult with and pay an attorney to figure this out, however. The pleading requirements are a little complicated. He could also ask for what is known as...Read more »
I moved here from Florida, we established child support in florida, case hasn’t transferred to North Carolina yet.. but do I still have full custody of my child even though father and I were never married.
Looking for a little help. I live in North Carolina. My husband and I have his 4 kids full time for 2 years now. BM was released from jail in April. We have since filed for custody, she responsed through the court's with a request for extension to seek legal representation. It was granted til... Read more »
Of course she can do it. The real question is whether it is legal for her to do so. The answer to that is if there is no custody order or other enforceable agreement in place then yes, she can as she has as much right to the children as the father. However, if she pulls a stunt like that it will...Read more »
First, you'd need an attorney to file a divorce from bed & board (which BTW despite the name is not an actual divorce) - that isn't something you or your spouse could do yourselves. Second, there's no way it'd be ready or even needed if you are moving out in the time frame you say you are....Read more »
