I was granted Sole Parental Responsibility of my grandson by

I was granted Sole Parental Responsibility of my grandson by state of Colorado (due to my daughter's neglect and drug addition). I subsequently moved to California (for a period of 3 years thus far) but want to return to Colorado. Since the order was granted by Colorado, Can I leave California without legal consequences?

I have legal Guardianship of my son's 2yr old daughter. My

I have legal Guardianship of my son's 2yr old daughter. My granddaughter's mother was in jail at the time for a very violent assault and is now out on probation for the next 2 years. Last year when I filed for the guardianship the other grandmother also filed. The other grandmother is a known drug addict and after lying to the judge that she didn't drink or do drugs the judge ordered her to take a drug test which she came back positive for meth. The grandmother pleaded with the judge and said she was off drugs and taking parenting classes. The judge didn't want to listen to anything she had to say and terminated the grandmother's rights and awarded guardianship to me. The reason I am writing you is this same grandmother is again petitioning the court for guardianship. What are her chances of the court reversing their decision and awarding guardianship to this woman? Oh and just for the record neither the mother or the grandmother has even bothered to call to see how my granddaughter is doing in the year that I have had her!

I have a disabled child who is now an adult and wI'll be 21

I have a disabled child who is now an adult and wI'll be 21 in 2 weeks. I watch him on scheduled weekends and during the week and in some cases more and every holiday. She wants me to watch him 30 days during the summer as well. I am a delivery driver and due to the severity of his disability do not have anyone that can watch him. He is non verbal, autistic and has adhd. I can't afford to pay for professional help and she constantly tells me that she will take me to court yet I watch him more than the time in the decree. Since she has filed guardianship, do I have to follow the visitations or is it all void from the guardianship papers? She also filed social security and gets paid to watch him from the state and I'm still paying child support. Living in TX does that mean I pay forever?

I would like to know my best way of going about the

I would like to know my best way of going about the guardianship of my 16yr old granddaughter. It's kind of mixed up at this point. So my son her custodial parent pasted away,he signed and affidavit notarized puting her in my care .But his wishes and what him and his daughter talked about was for her to go with my daughter/his sister for her last 2yrs of school in Nevada,he was planing on going there to set it all up.While he passed before that could happen. So i read that about it there and they want the mom to sign.I ask her and she is really not wanting to.She left my grandduaghter at the age of18mos with my son and us. She hasn't been around.The point is I live in calif. the place that the gardianship needs to be is in Nevada. Do i need to pettition because i was the last he left her in care of and ask the court to appoint my duaghter and her husband or do they just do,and With the mom more worried about getting stuck with child support .not wanting to do a non contest. Just not sure how to go forward thanks

I'm being accused of Financial Elderly Abuse with my husband

I'm being accused of Financial Elderly Abuse with my husband who is 27 years older than myself. I met Joe in Sept. of 2013. He was married to Patricia of 48 years. She passed away in Sept. of last year 2015. She was a wonderful lady and a true pioneer for women. She taught me so much even though she was sick and stricken with dementia. Joe got sick in Sept. of last year too with a stroke. It wasn't a bad one but it did affect his left leg and left arm and hand. He's getting physical therapy at home but due to his age it's a slow process. He's ok but since we are struggling financially because the lawyer is not following his wife's trust and not helping us with medical bills, Joe is stressing out and losing fight. I need help with the medical bills and caregiver bills and then things would be so much better for both of us. I feel so helpless for my husband, he is against it all and we have gone to lawyers for help and we have been charged thousands of dollars and none of them are listening to him about what he wants. It has to do with his son's which he has not had a relationship with for many years. They never bothered with him until the day his wife Pat died, then they started calling and making as if they cared but it was quite obvious that they were not thinking about him but her money. They want me out of the picture and Joe keeps telling me not to worry they can't do anything but they are. So, now I need someone who wants to help me out with the legal part of it because I don't know my rights as his wife. It is very complicated and frustrating but I know God is the overseer and if anyone can help me and Joe it would be an absolute miracle. Does anyone feel led to help an unordinary couple that love each other very much in spite of all that we're up against?
