My son's wife (not yet divorced) has placed a restraining order
on him claiming child abuse. The girls are 14 and 10. She left the marriage
for a boyfriend and is trying everything she can to cut my son out of the girls lives. Seems he is guilty until proves himself innocent. She is guilty of child neglect
for several reasons. What can he do?
JA: Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: This separation
has him financially broke. She left him with bills, unpaid rent, etc. and he had two weeks to find a place to live. He had to put down first and last month's rent and deposits on utilities. He works construction and was laid off a lot during the winter. He hasn't been able to save enough for a lawyer yet. She just had her third car accident in less that 3 months and that seems very suspicious. Also, no car insurance, no phone. She doesn't pay her bills (this was a huge problem during the marriage). So my son wonders what she does with her money and child support
. $800 mo.
JA: Is there anything else the Family Lawyer
should be aware of?
Customer: Is 10 years old too young to be left alone for hours?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Family Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
