I am a dual citizen U.S./Israeli. I live and work in the San

I am a dual citizen U.S./Israeli. I live and work in the San Francisco bay area, CA, USA.I am not in the United States, and slept with someone we never seriously dated. I like her though, but we don't know how things will develop between us.She lives and works in Israel. Israeli citizenship only. She told me she is right after her period and cannot get pregnant. She asked me to cum inside her, and this what happened during our excitement.She got pregnant, stating that she never planned it and this was an accident. However, she insists on keeping the child even though I harshly refuse it...but I don't really have a say. She is willing to sign any agreement I want to release me from stressing about money for the child if I just let her keep the baby and stop fighting with her about it. Also she hopes we will stay together so wants to be nice to me.We are now in Israel, and going to meet with a local family lawyer to sign such an agreement, of no financial and no-financial claims from her.My question: if she really signs such a release of me, will it also cover me for any future claims in the U.S./California? I would like to protect myself for the case that she decides to go after me in CA after the baby is born---can she damage me in the U.S.? I would appreciate your prompt advice what to do with this matter. At this point I want to ensure that the Israeli-signed contract with the lawyer here will cover me in the U.S./CA. What is the clause to add in the Israeli-signed contract that will protect me per the above?

My husband's sister, Jamie, has 3 kids, aged 11, 12, and 16.

My husband's sister, Jamie, has 3 kids, aged 11, 12, and 16. The 2 youngest are fathered by the same man, Joe. The oldest is fathered by a man who is in prison and has never been involved with the child. Jamie and Joe are married but are separated (not legally). Joe is also on probation after being released from prison. Jamie has a recent history of abusing subscription medication. None of the 3 children are attending school regularly and neither Jamie or Joe will accept calls from the truancy office of the schools. Jamie has just dropped all 3 kids off with Joe who now lives with his girlfriend and her children. Jamie stated that she signed over custody of the 2 younger kids to Joe and the oldest child to her mother, Kim. I am doubtful that she has legally done anything to change custody as this was a sudden decision. Jamie has left town giving the children and Joe the impression that she is not coming back. There is no way to reach her. As aunt and uncle of all 3 children, what options might we have to get temporary or permanent custody of 1 or more of the children?

My son is 19 and his daughter's mother is 16. In March my

My son is 19 and his daughter's mother is 16. In March my son went to our local child support enforcement office and requested a paternity test, child support, and visitation. In April the maternal grandmother called me screaming asking why I wanted a DNA test done. I told her it doesn't matter if I think it's his or not, the test has to be done before a child support order is enforced because she told him he can't sign the birth certificate.In July they went to court for everything. The judge asked the girl why haven't taken the test. She and her mom said they didn't know anything about it. If they didn't know why did the grandmother call me in April saying she got the paperwork. The judge ordered them to go that day (Tuesday) to take the test and for my son to go also. When we went we waited all day for them and they didn't show up. Friday child support enforcement called and told my son they just left, so he had the test done at that time.In August the babies mother joined Job Corps without our knowledge. Now the maternal grandmother has my son's daughter and said she automatically gets custody because her daughter is underage. Would my son not receive custody because he is the biological father and over 18? I asked the girl's mother where were you all those times I called you and asked you to tell your daughter to stop telling my son where she is. Where were you all those times I called and told you my son didn't come home where's your daughter and you told me you don't have time to look for her.

We live in the State of. I have tried to find out what law

We live in the State of Ky. I have tried to find out what Ky law is concerning a Minor with a baby. I can't find anything specific to the state of Ky so I'm hoping someone can answer my question.My son and his GF have had a baby- he was 16 and she 15 when this happened. he is now 17 and she will be 16 in 5 days. Her parents are divorced and fight over the 3 children that they have together. Mom is a Meth addict, dad is an alcoholic. Dad says he has custody, mom says she does, not real sure which one does. Anyways - "B" mom of the newborn does not want her baby "A" to be in the constant chaos of what she has to go through, she wants to have baby "A" live with her father and his parents. Her father says he has custody of both of them and they can't go anywhere. I understand he has custody of "B" but if I am correct he does not have custody of baby "A" and mom should be able to leave her with her dad if she chooses.Thoughts?
