I live in Minnesota, I have a court order stating I am allowed overnight vistitation with my daughter. The mother says it has to be revisited in court before she will allow this. Is she violating the court agreement by not allowing overnight visitation? Can I file a police report to document this situation? Do I have to go to court to get this enforced? We are supposed to settle issues through mediation and she does not want to do that. She claims to keep asking for overnights visits is harassing. I completed a parenting class and filed this with the courts which was part of the requirements I needed to follow through for overnights. Do I go ahead and file a police report documenting her refusal to allow my parenting time. Is it legal to record our conversations? Do I need to let her know I am recording? Please Advise.

Re: self-uniting marriages sex couples in Pennsylvania.

Re: self-uniting marriages for same sex couples in Pennsylvania. I am concerned about whether a self-uniting marriage is really ironclad in PA. Are there any grey areas e.g. Will it be accepted in counties that do not issue these marriage licenses? What about other states where gay marriage is legal - do they have to honor our self-united marriage? I understand that an officiant is not needed, but do we even have to have a ceremony or can we merely express our desire to be married in front of two witnesses? This sounds like a common law marriage, which is no longer legal in PA.

I was married in west Hollywood CA in 2008(?) when gay marriage

I was married in west Hollywood CA in 2008(?) when gay marriage was FIRST legalized, prior to being revoked again soon after.... I can not find any proof of marriage online @ public records sites and I would like to find out how to get divorced ASAP if the marriage IS in fact still valid. We have been separated for 5 years and are not in any type of contact.... Any advise to get divorced (if needed) would be very helpful as most lawyers will not discuss gay divorce it seems. We have NO money or assets to be divided.

My then partner and I , who were residents of Florida, went

My then partner and I , who were residents of Florida, went to Vermont and entered into a civil union. We both returned to Florida and separated after about 3 years. We have not officially dissolved the civil union. I am attempting to legally dissolve the civil union to avoid any claims on my estate at my death. As of July 1, 2012 it is possible to do this from Florida under specific circumstances. I believe that I meet all of the requirements to do this. I have not been able to access the websites that have the necessary forms. Can someone help me get this problem solved?
