I'm the grandfather and my daughter is attempting to leave

I'm the grandfather and my daughter is attempting to leave with my 22 month old granddaughter and 8month old grandson with no money and nowhere to go because she and her mother had a fight. The father lives in California and has never laid eyes on the grandson and hasn't seen the granddaughter since she was about 6 months old. She has tried to get a divorce and to no avail because she will not push the issue. I feel if she leaves the grandkids will be in harm's way and I'm refusing to let her take the kids. What can I obviously legally do? We support her and the grandkids completely as I work days and my wife(her mother) works nights so we can always have someone home. When she does get money (very rarely) she spends it on herself she has not tried to get wic or food stamps to help me and her mother at all.Thanks and God bless for the reply ahead of time.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm sorry about that. Tampa FLJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes about divorce and child custody. She wants to get divorced and the lawyer told her to stay here and do everything but she is hell bent on moving to California and with another couple that has 5kids and she can't watch the 2 she hasJA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Said they have no jurisdiction over him in California and if she filed here and had him served then he legally does not have to respondJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Like right now she is outside trying to get the couple from California to send her a 1 way ticket for her and the children and before all this happened she wanted to have a notary sign a piece of paper giving us temporary custody of the children but like we explained to her if she did that and he found out we wouldn't have a leg to stand on if he showed up here while she is in California and take the grandkidsJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

I live in county, IL. Someone using my address filed a

I live in cook county, IL. Someone using my address filed a complaint with the Lake county, IN Child Protective Service (CPS) using my address in 2013. The people who were the subject of the complaint are my grandson's mother and stepfather. Since the filing of this complaint my wife and I have been harassed and we have had to support our son who is in the military through custody disputes in Indiana. We continue to be harassed by this couple, and they have always claimed that they had proof that we filed the complaint. A couple of weeks ago, when I pressed this person for proof that my wife or I had filed the complaint in question, he emailed to me a PDF copy of a partially dedacted copy of a summary from the Lake County CPS which contained my name and my wife's name and our address here in Illinois. Do we have a case against the Lake county CPS?

I have a very sick child that is needing now a possible

I have a very sick child that is needing now a possible kidney biopsy. His father is refusing to pay for any out of pocket medical expenses related to this as he put him on Child Health Plus and we were sent to a pediatric nephrologist at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. We have no pediatric nephrologists in our area. He has the only source of income as I am disabled and unable to work. I have been advised to call CPS. He has cut us off from all resources and is only paying $230 per week in child support. He has been ordered to only pay the mortgage and for nothing else. Our heat,electric were shut off in the middle of the winter last February and the same child was left to awaken in the dark, in the cold. I have the records from NYSEG proving this to have happened on purpose along with a police report. Please advise.

I own a small preschool. My daughter works . Another married

I own a small preschool. My daughter works for me. Another married female employee, a teacher, showed her a picture of a naked woman who she wanted to date while in a room full of children. No child saw this that I am aware of. This teacher has been quite open with the other employees about her and her husbands sexcapades. Is this grounds for immediate dismissal? Do I need to call child protective services?

My wife and I have registered care at a child care facility

My wife and I have registered care at a child care facility on a Navy Base. I am a Gov employee she is not. She does not have access to the base so no access to drop off or pick up our child, though DoD instruction says Parents have access to their child at ALL times. We appealed to the base commander, who says the mother does not get access to base simply because her child is in legally registered DoD child care on that base. It is also required by the child care fac, that we both be availible at all times to pick up our child in an emergency Choose an Expert and type your question here...

My ex (mother of my child) has given my child serotonin

My ex (mother of my child) has given my child serotonin medication and my ex willingly admitted that she did not inform me. My child has been taking this medication for a few months until I found out. I feel this is endangering the welfare of a minor. Please define this. The medication has some of these precautions:Taking MAO inhibitors with this medication may cause a serious (possibly fatal) drug interaction.The risk of serotonin syndrome/toxicity increases if you are also taking other drugs that increase serotonin.This drug may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires alertness until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. (Note: my daughter just got her license and driving while on this medication)This is what I fear: "My daughter had to go to the hospital and the doctor would ask me "Is your daughter on any medication", I would have said NO. Because I was not told my daughter was not on medication, the doctor might have given her my daughter a dangerous and harmful medication that would negatively react with the serotonin medication she is taking."And all of this because my ex was viscous to me and did not inform me that my daughter is on medication.
