My ex has full physical custody but we share legal custody. My daughter has been living with her grandparents for the past 3 years. About a month ago my ex and the grandparents stopped communication with me. Is this legal?
All my family is in USA. My sister is citizen and my mother got her green card recently. I would like to stay in USA, since all my family is here. I’m an F1 student and I’m applying for my opt in about 3 months.
If you are over 21 years old, you may need another dual intent visa to allow you to maintain status. There are also other challenges, when you are in the U.S. on a non-immigrant F1 visa or try to return. You may have other options.
As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment or...Read more »
my sister rents a small house in Utah. The driveway goes from the street past the house to a garage. My sister's landlord has parked two old trailers on the driveway next to the house. They are an eyesore and my sister does not want them there. They also partially block access to the garage (which... Read more »
The answer depends on the rental agreement and the condition of the property when your sister arrived. Does the agreement make any mention of the landlord storing anything on the property? Does the agreement use unusual language that says your sister was only renting the house and not the property...Read more »

Generally speaking the Court will set a mandatory appearance for anything 31 mph over the speed limit. While the charges in court generally match a citation, it is not impossible to add other charges. I would recommend contacting a local attorney to help address this issue. They should be able to...Read more »
Having dealt with similar cases before, I know that these situations can be difficult.

First and foremost, it sounds like you should consider hiring an attorney. It sounds like your ex and his attorney are taking a very aggressive approach in the custody litigation. Their approach seems to be working to keep you from the kids. I suggest finding an attorney who can help level the...Read more »
There is this co worker at her job who called her in a secluded room and try to unbutton her pants twice with out my wife's consent, to the point where my wife had to lie about being on her period. Two separate times.
I’m sorry to hear about what you and your wife are going through. I would recommend calling the police first. If the co-Worker is charged with a crime, the police can also implement a no contact order.
Additionally, your wife may have civil remedies available to her. She likely qualifies...Read more »

I think that you may be confusing the time to respond to a Petition (likely for custody or divorce) and the time to respond to an order to show cause. The 21 days to respond applies to a Petition or complaint that is served upon you. On the other hand, an Order to Show cause has different...Read more »
I have full custody and he has standard visitation. I was wondering if I'd be able to move out of state with my daughter and what steps I'd need to take to do so?

The holiday schedule for Christmas and that statute will not overlap. The Christmas parent-time schedule includes the entire time the kids are off school. The statute you cite would apply to days without school that fall outside the designated holiday parent-time but are connected to it....Read more »

This is left to the discretion of the trial judge. Utah Code § 30–3–10(2)(p) indicates that one relevant factor in the best interest of the child includes “the stated wishes and concerns of the child, taking into consideration the child's cognitive ability and emotional maturity.” A...Read more »
Custody cases can be very complex. What to do often depends on the specific facts of the case. A paternity test may or may not be required.

The answer to your question will depend on which court you are in. Orders to show cause are governed by local rules that differ from one district to the next. Generally speaking if an opposing party does not oppose a motion, the court will grant the relief requested. The process for getting that...Read more »
I don't know yet what they are saying—only that they have annoyed the couple and have made me look bad, with representatives of the couple having now contacted me to try to end what is happening. This was last week or so, and it may still be happening today.
Without knowing more, this could be a violation of several laws. If you are seeking criminal consequences, you can make a police report and allow the state to determine what charges, if any to bring against the individual impersonating you. You may also consider seeking civil relief that may...Read more »
The answer to this question is very fact dependent. The cost of trial will depend largely upon the numbers of exhibits, numbers of witnesses, and issues in your particular case. I recommend talking with attorneys well in advance of trial as you will also need to ensure that pretrial disclosures are...Read more »
Alimony is not a black and white area of the law. Alimony is generally based upon the needs of the receiving spouse and the paying spouse's ability to pay. If you are fighting for or against alimony, I recommend having an attorney on your side.
