A temporary order was issued in a guardianship proceeding to

A temporary order was issued in a guardianship proceeding to honor a stipulation the parties agreed to. Months later the parties entered into a settlement agreement that went before the court. The court could not issue a decree due to language in certain provisions in the settlement agreement. A motion was then made to negate the settlement agreement. The motion was denied but the judge issued an order stating that the settlement agreement be revised to contain a new provision stipulated by the court. The settlement agreement was never revised and my father died with the guardianship case still open. Was there an order in place at the time of my father's death? What was the status of the settlement agreement and the new provision ordered by the judge?

I have a grandson who is medically disabled from a doctor

I have a grandson who is medically disabled from a doctor negligents. He is required to have special treatment every night and cannot defecate or urinate on his own. His mother is not following the doctors directions and is verbally abusive to him and sometimes physically. We provide all of his support and care since they live with us. She is waiting for a payoff from the lawsuit to leave, otherwise she cannot support herself and her children. She has stated when she get the settlement she is going to get a makeover including boob job and other items with the funds. What can we do to make sure that all of the funds received in the lawsuit go to our grandson for future medical needs etc. They say that as he gets older he probably will not be able to walk. We are afraid she will not take care of his basic needs and will squander any moneys received. What can we do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: They are in CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She has stated that we want to kill her, yet she is living under our roof and wee provide everything for her an her kids (2 grandchildren). She can't afford to live on her own since she doesn't have a job and cost of daycare is more that probably what she can make. She is narcissistic in the way she handle herself and we are scared for the kids.

My granddaughter, 17 reported in March her father sexually

My granddaughter, 17 reported in March her father sexually molested her. She now lives in California with mother. She reported it. Was taken seriously and brother and her were given custody to mother, her father had custody at time. Recently California handed over evidence to Utah where all charges were dropped. Mother not financially stable, father had highly paid attorney in both states, to make a long story short. I only have story from mothers perspective. Still have good relationship with father, we think, although, we have not spoken to him throughout this process. Father just took possession of autistic son, 11 today. Granddaughter refused to go with him. Is there anything further we can do at this point to help our granddaughter? Legally? She is trying to get 2nd restraining order against him at this point. When she calls the Utah police in South Jordan, where she lived at the time of most of the abuse, they have laughed at her and say the case is closed. They never interviewed her by the way. She is worried about her brother. We are near retirement and are not able to hire an attorney for her, would like to. We probably could, but would jeopardize retirement etc.
