My childrens paternal grandmother is suing me for partial custody of my children when I have never kept them from her and have always allowed visitations. Does the court have a right to court order a set schedule? I am in PAJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in PennsylvaniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no I am currently unemployed low on fundsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Their grandmother and I have always had an open communication, and good standing relationship. Her son is incarcerated for domestic violence against myself and is also a Meghans law offender I am trying to understand why any visitation would need court ordered if I have always allowed her visitation and we have had a good standing relationship.

I was alleged mental abuse via textmessages by my ex. story
I was alleged mental abuse via textmessages by my ex. Long story short, I had bad representation. My attorney and her attorney agreed to a stipulation, the judge ordered me 30 days Uas and Bas random 3 times a week- completed. Ordered anger eval and alcohol eval, both completed no treatment necessary. Judge ordered that children attend therapy because my daughter was cutting herself and she was blaming me. Well after 5 months I got the medical records from the therapist, spoke to her over the phone and obtained records. Therapist said kids underlying issues are not tied to me, both kids denied SI or HI. Report goes on saying that both kids have had difficulties not spending time with me, oldest daughter has severe depression can be changes with the mind and body. Report indicates she has had high conflict with mother at her household, eventually ran away, problems with peers at school and bullying. Mother stopped sending to therapy because I have obtained medical records, and disregard that therapiest recommended therapy throughout summer and into this new school year. Also judge recommended I do a parenting class in recommendation by therapist but therapist indicated they cannot refer me to a parenting class because im not their client.Question is when I go file my notice of compliance with my items do I just tell the judge that what class she wants me to do since children are pulled out of therapy because I obtained medical records that indicate basically was false allegations.When I file my motion to reinstate parenting plan based on new evidence that kids underlying issues are not tied to me but more of parental alienation from mother or issues at mothers household, can I request make up time and have the mother psychological evaluation?o and by the way the alleged text messages where never submitted into evidence.Thanks.

Adoption - Background Check Question I have a question about
Adoption - Background Check QuestionHello,I have a question about adoption, and have not been able to find the answer anywhere. My wife and I have been married for almost 13 years and no children. We would like to begin the process of adoption. We live in Texas. I have a specific question.Every single adoption agency and home study agency that we have found, say they do a fingerprint background of all prospective parents. Of course they do. My question is, what, exactly, is a home study fingerprint check? Is this just a regular FBI background check OR some kind of a state background check? What are they interested in?I ask, because I was arrested at a backyard barbecue for public intoxication. The charge was not valid and it was dismissed. (I was not even intoxicated and no intoxication tests were performed. The officer just took 2 of us in on his own disgression and said it did not matter what the circumstances were, he was able to arrest me on public intoxication at a rowdy party because the charge basically just covered everything for a person or group of people being loud and having too much fun). (There is more to the story than that, of course. I might have deserved it, but there was no other charge available for him to make his point). Anyway, it was dismissed; but has not, yet, been expunged. It will be, but it has a statute of limitations.Now, 8 months after the incident, I applied for an official FBI fingerprint background check. (Just on my own for personal interest). I sent in my finger prints, paid the fee, and and received an official letter from the U.S. Department of Justice / Federal Bureau of Investigation that says that my application and fingerprints "revealed no prior arrest data at the FBI."Is my home study and adoption going to check any deeper than the FBI fingerprint check? As far as I know, this invalid arrest can only be found online if someone was to search the particular country arrest record. Also, a search of the 30 top 3rd party background check services show no results, either. Will they be searching another databases at a state level and discover this buried and invalid misdemeanor c arrest?I know the "official" answer is to say just disclose it and and explain it. But, it is definitely a mark again us and our application. It puts us at a disadvantage compared to all the other applicants that do not have an "arrest". And it is a recent record.You may know that contrary to the belief of many, there is much more demand to adopt children than there is supply. So, having a very recent charge, whether it was dropped or not, really dings our application compared to our competitors. It starts getting tough and discouraging to my wife and I if we keep getting shuffled to the bottom of a stack of applicants every time a child in need comes around.This was just a long story, to ask, what do you know about this? If the FBI fingerprint check is blank for both my wife and me, are we ok to say that there is no recorded? Or do we still need to highlight something that the FBI missed, and no one might ever be able to find anyway.Surely, loud music and horseplay at a cookout shouldn't affect our chance of adopting a child, but I know that people in charge just hear the word "arrest" and think what they will think. Please tell me that FBI check is all that is ever done in Texas.
