He may be being neglected and or abused and seems to be being help captive by his wife. Who herself has never shown the mental or physical capacity to care for another individual let alone one who is not ambulatory or verbal.
I'm sorry for your difficult situation. Your post remains open for a month and you may be better off simply reaching out to Tennessee attorneys here (Find-a-Lawyer) or searching independently on your own. This isn't really a lawyer referral service - it's only a Q & A Board. Good luck
In divorce papers he admits he’s not the father. I have raised him for 4 yrs. He’s never had any part in raising my son. They are divorced but apparently a step was skipped. State will not allow us to change birth certificate.
You will have to file a Petition To Establish Paternity. All interested parties must be joined. I recommend you file in Chancery. One of the things you are trying to get the Court to do is to order the issuance of a new Certificate of Birth.
They sent me a paper saying a man was my babies father and I got a letter today saying they made a mistake and he in fact is not after about 3 weeks. I told the father and who I thought was my sons grandmother and they were so thrilled. Now I have to tell them he isnt. Is there a way to sue over... Read more »
I have all the other necessary requirements: job, money, living situation, maturity, transportation, etc., but if my parents don't agree to emancipation, how do I justify that it is necessary for me to be emancipated? I know it is, but how is it objectively determined? In other words, when I... Read more »
Not sure what you mean by override you now. But the POA is not affected by the Principal's subsequent matrimony. You might ask your Husband to revoke that POA now, and to possibly appoint you as his Attorney-In-Fact. The POA might actually be a health related instrument, dealing with...Read more »
You are in a precarious situation. Harboring a runaway is a crime and if the mother wants to vengeful, she could make that argument. If you believe, as you question suggest, failure to provide for a minor is neglect and abuse. Everyone in Tennessee is a mandatory reporter for neglect and abuse. The...Read more »

I have paid support on my child for 10 years with no C.O. Other parent is denying visitation now. If I take other parent to court and they find my support order should be more will I be held in arrears even though other parent never filed motion for child support in 10 years.
I hope you did not pay her in cash with no receipts. Currently, the Courts are instructed to only go back 5 years without a specific finding it should go back further. Additionally, if you have not be deemed to be the legal, not only the biological father of the child, then you must legitimize the...Read more »
My ex-wife and I share 1 daughter who is turning 18 and graduating high school both in May 2020. I pay monthly child support directly to my ex-wife per our divorce agreement. Is there a form I can secure somewhere and file with the court along with appropriate fees - or - do I need to secure an... Read more »
You cannot simply file something with the Court. You would need a motion to get an order terminating the child support. If there is an arrearage, then payments would continue to be taken. Your best course of action is to consult with Hamilton family law attorney who can take care of this for you.
I'm married and polyamorous, my boyfriend was forced to sign over his legal rights to his family because he's disabled. His family recently decided to control everything he does, including a rule that he has to update them on where he goes. He's 25 and fully functioning. He wants to... Read more »
Normally, a power of attorney can simply be ended by the rejection of the POA. However, it this is court ordered as you question suggests, he will need to retain counsel, file a petition and have a hearing to prove the POA is no longer needed.
At this time the Tennessee Supreme Court has issued Orders continuing Order of Protections until it determines it is relatively safe to conduct hearings. So, no under these circumstances your rights have not been violated. If you do not have an attorney, you need to get one asap.

You should consult with a local family law attorney. From the facts, as you describe them, it seems as if there is no parenting plan that has ever been established by a court order. If this is the case, you will likely need to file a Petition to Establish Parentage in the county juvenile court...Read more »
