Child custody, visitation and support matters can always be amended, provided that there is a material change in circumstance since the entry of the last order.

Getting domestic assault charges dropped such that you can expunge the arrest is difficult.

The lawyer you talked to is correct. The interests of children of your great-grandmother goes to THEIR children on their death. I suggest you get deeds for whatever shares you can, then approach the others for their shares. This can be very complicated and time consuming. And you absolutely need...Read more »
