Recent Emotional Abuse questions

My wife and I are currently separated and she has left the

My wife and I are currently separated and she has left the marital home (6.28.16) and has yet to inform me where my child resides at night. She filed an EPO and PPO against me and during the court hearing (7.19.16), the judge dismissed her claims. Since the hearing she has made it challenging for me to see our daughter and refuses to see me on a daily basis. She disconnected the phone and disallowed contact with my daughter, until I secured a prepaid line. Am I able to petition the court for a restraining order against her for emotional abuse? She suffers from diagnosed manic depression and anxiety and I am concerned with the safety of our child.

My brother, who was living in my parents old house(now

My brother, who was living in my parents old house(now deceased) has also passed. I am estranged from my family due to physical, sexual and emotional abuse I suffered. How can I ensure any profit from the selling of my parents home will reach me? I live in another state, and use my married name. There definately were no wills or power of attorney. My family does not have much, and obviously neither do I. I can' t afford an attorney, and it wouldnt be sensible as I am quite sure anything I would recieve would probably be < 5-10k. Is there something I need to do, but keep my privacy from my crazy family?

I'm filing temp custody order 15 year old due to verbal

I'm filing for a temp custody order for my 15 year old due to verbal and emotional abuse by the mother and her new husband. also mom abandoned her in Newark with no ride home. not the first time. I was just wondering since we have another child who is 13 but wasn't abandoned and is still currently with her mom can I just go for the custody of the 15 year old or do I have to go for the 13 year old as well. The 15 year old chooses to stay with me but the 13 year old is brainwashed by the mom and new husband and as far as I know wants to stay there. Id like to get her out of the situation as well but afraid theres no reason to take emergency custody of her at this time. thanks

He planned this. Turned my life upside down. Our home about 3 years ago I refinanced via seterus it was in foreclosure his name only on mortgage. He had home when I met him. The loan is upside down with a 40 year mortgage through setrrus.: what are my rights so far as keeping home about 10 feet sits on land owned by him and his first wife.

I have joint custody of my kids. I am the custodial parent, kids live with me. Kids dad does absolutely nothing with kids except take them to movies or whatever. Barely picks them up, doesn't go to dr appt, school stuff, nothing. He constantly video tapes us, records us, etc. my oldest has severe anxiety because of it. doesn't want to see his dad. Dad recently came into some money. He told me he would pay me $300k plus extra for custody of kids or he will break me and my family in court and I will have nothing. Money talks he says and he will pay whomever off to testify that I am a bad mom. I want to sue for full custody and hange his visitation to once a month for the emotional abuse. Can I do that? And isn't he like bribing me or blackmail or something??

I have been divorced little over a year. The judge ordered

I have been divorced for a little over a year. The judge ordered joint custody, no child support but each party be equal responsible for all medical, school, extra school activities and both of us keep insurance on our 7 year old little girl. So far, I have paid everything with no reimbursement, he has no insurance on her and isn't even furnishing her a roof. He has been living in with his mother in a 1 bedroom assisted living apartment and my daughter is so unhappy. She doesn't go clean when there, I have marked her underware and she has worn for 3 days. I marked with washable markers. She has bruisies all the times and we were in a violent marriage. I worry about her, he has to listen when she talks to me when he has her and you can hear the quiver in her voice. I think she is afraid of him and he bullys her. I know I can take him back for contempt but I want the custody to be modified more so. I am willing to take full responsibility of her and all her financial needs and him have every other weekend visitation. I have document evidence of all of this very much to the point and texts where he is always threatening me to have the law come and pick me up. I have followed the court order to a perfect T. Also, now he says he is moving and the address he gave me does not exist, I called 911 to verify and can get a letter to this effect. Should I file motion for temporary custody,contempt and modification of divorce decree all at the same time.
