Recent Custody Rights questions

I live in Florida and have been living with my ex-wife and

I live in Florida and have been living with my ex-wife and two children ages 11 and 13 for 15 years.Although we got divorced in Year 2010 and formulated a parenting plan and child support we never broke up and we never move out.As a result we never followed the parenting plan as we never moved or lived apart.However 1 month ago I did move out and she moved into a new place as well and now she is suing me for 7 years of back child support.But we lived together and we were a couple just not married anymore legally.She claims the parenting plan and child support is still in effect.I am saying it was null and void as we never broke up and still lived together and of course never followed the parenting plan or made child support payments.So my question is very important and please do not offer an answer unless you really know the answer:Will I have to pay 7 years of back child support?

I have a son but I'm not married to his dad and I was never

I have a son but I'm not married to his dad and I was never married to him. His dad isn't on the birth certificate and I was wondering what rights he has over our child. Is it possible for me to make it so that he doesn't get to our child until he turns 18? He's dad is abusive, I've called the cops on him many times, I've had a restraining order against him, he's not fit to be a dad, he doesn't do anything for his son, I have to argue with him to get him to change a diaper, all he does is take pictures of our son and post it on Facebook that's what he calls being a dad. I really need some answers and help

My daughter, son-in-law, and 3 month old son live in London, UK. Their son was born in London. My daughter wants to move back to Los Angeles where they lived 2.5 years ago. Son-in-law does not want to move to back to LA and insists on taking a job in Seattle, WA.

My husband has a daughter who is almost 15. She has not

My husband has a daughter who is almost 15. She has not lived with him until recently due to being in the military and constantly traveling. He was 17 and the mother was 16 when they had the child. The grandparents have been the ones that child has lived with most of her life. There are no court papers and no child support involved. Everything has been very civil. His daughter just moved in with us a couple months ago and we are moving about 2 hours away. We want to take her with us. Do the grandparents have any rights to stand on to take her from us?

I have 4 young children (ages 3 mos to 4 years) and my wife is a prescription opioid addict. I must separate myself and my children from her. My rent is overdue as I am able to work very little--I solely care for the children even though she lives with us. My only option so far is an attorney who requires a $10,000 retainer. There is no physical violence involved so the police can't help.
