What constitutes legal domestic partnership?
So Im assuming their daughter has no rights then at all? Shes filing for custody tomorrow based on the DV complaint as per instructed by the police. I just now told her to go to the ER as well since shes getting headaches and blurred vision. She has much facial bruising. Can I have her file a civil suit or does it have to wait for the disposition of his criminal case? Statute of limitations on Civil Suits?
They now own a home upstate together that was paid for. What type of lawyer would be needed to litigate anything from this?
