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.

My Husband would like to adopt my children; in turn they would like to be adopted by my husband. Bio-Dad has been missing in action for about 10 years, whereabouts unknown. When I search for him so we can try to serve paperwork, all that comes up are mug shots and court dates over the last several years. What can I do to help us move forward with the adoption? We are in NC.

I'm self representing pro se in family court where I'm

I'm self representing pro se in family court where I'm requesting a modification of custody and child support in a case in Mecklenburg County of NC.I have placed a request for discovery to the other party requesting answers to a set of interrogatories and a document request. They quickly filed a motion for a thirty day extension, which was granted by the court. Since that is going to further delay my case, I want to begin deposing the other party whom I have been divorced from for five years. I am unsure about what is required to depose the other party and if I personally can question her or would I have to hire someone else to depose her? What is required for recording the deposition, may I simply record it using a video camera or is a court reporter required? Also, do I just send a letter to her attorney regarding the date of the deposition? How much advance notice is required prior to the date of the deposition?As a side note, there have never been any abuse issues before, during or after the marriage and never any orders or complaints filed against me by her or anyone else.

So I am getting letters stating that I am going to have to

So I am getting letters stating that I am going to have to pay child support for a kid that I never knew about and obviously never signed a birth certificate for. I also never have seen any papers about having to submit to a DNA test since I am not on the birth certificate. How is this possible? Wouldn't the first step be a DNA test?
