I live in Minnesota, I have a court order stating I am allowed
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.

My same sex partner and I legally married in Iowa in 2010. We bought a house in Indiana in September of 2013 which is in my name only. We are currently seeking a divorce and are unclear with the changes in Indiana gay marriage laws as to who has rights or financial responsibility over the house or how it is to be divided.

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.
