CPS kept my daughters survivors benefits she received from her deceased father the two years she was in their care. They told me it was in a savings account for her and then told her it was to pay for her care. Can they do that?
Hi! I am pregnant with a guy here and we broke up about a month ago. I left our common apartment to stay with my sister because he was neglecting me at home. I’ve been at my sister’s for 2 weeks and he didn’t ask for the baby even less for me. I’ve been thinking and I want to go back to... Read more »
As long as you have a valid passport, have no outstanding warrants for any crime you may have committed, and France would not prevent you from flying in because of the Coronavirus, then there is no legal way that your baby's father can keep you here.

I would strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment with an attorney in your area. Whenever anyone wants to have orders specifying their rights and duties to their children, those orders have to be issued by a court with jurisdiction (i.e. authority to make orders that affect your life).

It depends on the facts and how the Judge views them. If the Judge believes that him doing so was necessary to protect the girl, your son should be fine. The best approach, however, is for your son to take the initiative, hire an attorney and file an Application for Temporary Restraining Ordre...Read more »
I can answer the first part of your question. A "direct" flight is not the same thing as a "non-stop" flight, which is a distinction I think you are confused about. Any flight that leaves from the correct city and arrives in the city designated by the court order is a...Read more »
You guys should probably sit down and have a rational conversation about a schedule that would be less stressful for him. If you guys come to an agreement, you can hire an attorney to turn your agreement into a legally binding court order.

Under the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, a Temporary Restraining Order usually expires on its own 14 days after it has been issued. TRO's are often extended, however. I suggest that you call the District Clerk to ask.
Have been "allowed" facetime visits only since March due to Covid. Been Sundays 1230 - 230 but kids started to just hang up with no explanation after 15mn to an hour. Told them next visit will be 2pm - 4pm Saturday inperson wherever they want. Replied we couldnt force them to go or stay????
Hire a lawyer to assist you with enforcing your custody rights. You may also want to consider getting a court order for family counseling to figure out why the children are resisting attending visitation.

I filed for modification of custody. My ex husband drove drunk to police station with our child, assaulted me, and evaded arrest. Before that, he was sending me threatening and harassing text messages constantly. He also refuses to refinance the car that he was awarded in the divorce so its... Read more »
In order to prevail on a Motion to Modify custody, you have to prove two things: 1) A substantial and material change of circumstances on the part of the mother, the father, the child or some combination of the three, and 2) that the requested modification is in the best interests of a child. I...Read more »

If there is an Order in place authorizing you to have visitation, she cannot legally use the COVID crisis as a reason to deny you visitation. Also, if there is a geographic restriction on your son's residence, she may be in contempt for moving your son out of that area.
My wife and i have been separated for about 4 years now. i haven't seen or talked to my kids in 2 years. She has cut off all communication to where i cant talk to the. All i want is something to do with my kids
Family law cases are very fact specific. You will need to consult with an attorney about the specifics of your case. It is possible for a person to win custody of 1 kid if the facts support it. If the facts do not support it, the lawyer you hire will be able to point that out to the Judge.
