Greetings,I am interested in terminating the paternal parental rights of my two sons. Father is not involved nor is he paying any type of support. I left the relationship due to domestic violence. Have not seen him in 6 years or so. Children do not know who he is. Would like to change last names if possible as well. Assistance in how to proceed would be appreciated. Father has extensive juvenile and adult criminal record.

My sister in law was attacked by her daughter today (not the first time) and as a result her daughter was arrested and is in jail until tomorrow morning. Her granddaughter was present at the time of the attack (as she was at the first attack) and does not want to go back to live with her mother. A restraining order has been taken out and a case has been started with Child Protection Services. My question is this..when my niece gets out of jail in the morning will my sister in law be forced to make her granddaughter go with her mother if she requests her daughter back? We suspect that my niece is on drugs and have photos to prove her house is in horrible condition. She has no job, etc etc. The granddaughter has begged to not go with her mother. She is 10 yrs oldJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes..a restraining order has been filed and my niece will be served with it in her hearing in the morning and we started a case with Child Protection Services thru TXDPSJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

My three grandchild are 17, 13.9, and 7 years old. Is there really an ages where a child can choose not to go visit his/her father. There is no court order at this point. They just go when he asks, but they don't want to. There is no disillusion or divorce yet. He has just gotten into a routine of every other week and whenever he wants during the week. He also wants them to spend the night on school nights, but they don't want to do that either.

My 18 year old daughter called 911 during a dispute with her

My 18 year old daughter called 911 during a dispute with her father. The police arrived and I told them I was not pressing charges. While questioning her in her room they said they smelled marijuana and that constituted a search. The found piece of marijuana the size of a quarter and they took her in. They told me they were taking her for the domestic violence charge and go to court the next day to tell them I was dropping the charges and it would be dismissed. When they took her to the station, they asked her to assist in a bust of the person who was dealing and all her charges would be dropped. We went to court with the domestic violence papers only to be told she was there for a small possession of marijuana and a domestic violence issue. We were mislead into the whole situation unknowing they wanted to use my daughter. My daughter s frightened for her safety. I think the search was illegal and do not understand her rights. They told her the whole thing would "go away" if she cooperated. We do not want her too. Wills he be re-arrested?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: New Jersey, 02/15/17JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: They processed herJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
