Glad to help. Who has legal custody of your daughter right now, and what type of visitation is ordered. And why did your mom have custody? Thanks, Steve

You do need to get custody of your daughter asap.I also have a 10 year old daughter so i feel for you! You need to file a motion to modify child custody to have it changed to yourself. In your motion you need to allege as a substantial change in circumstances the environment the child is now living in and your Custody Rights are superior to your mother. She should never win a custody dispute with you legally. I bet if you file your motion you will get the child away from your Mom, as the law favors this. Sincerely, steve
so how do i do that can i do it through the internet or what do i havet to do i have a two year old son and my daughter calls me once in awhile and asks me i want to be with my brother so how can i do this internet or in person
Well you need either to hire an attorney or learn how to do it yourself. You can get the forms off of the internet, and or from a legal aid store or local court house. You need to fill out all the forms. You then need to call the judges office and get a hearing date. you then do a notice of hearing to the other party and then file the original petition for custody and the notice of hearing with your clerks office. You then send to the other party a copy of the notice of hearing and the petition. Then get ready for the hearing with any documents you might need and or witnesses, and good luck. Sincerely, steve
thank you for all the help how much do you charge to do a case like this let me know
do you know the charge of an attorney in minnesota do you u know the number for the judge office if you have it on hand i cant wait to bring my daughter home with and thank you so much if i payed you could you be my attorney for this case let me know thank you jennifer oneil
Hi sorry I had to take a break. The charge for something like this could be from 1500-2500 as a retainer depending on the attorney. I would love to be your attorney but my office is in Stuart Florida and I do not work up north, but thanks, XXXXX XXXXX this question will be fine for me. For the Judges number you need to call the specific court house which handled your case and ask which Judge is now handling these. They will have the judges number. Sincerely, Steve
