May I get a copy of the papers that made it possible for the state of Pennsylvania to get custody of me in the year 1952. My dad left my mother without resources and my brother, sister, and I were either voluntarily given up for adoption or taken away from my mother, I don't know which. I was placed in a school in Millford, Pa. at age eight and remained there until I was eighteen. My parents are dead and I want to know how we were removed from our home.

Law educator only: my brother is not in the will. my father

law educator only: my brother Patrick is not in the will. my father stated in the will ,he took care of Patrick when he was alive. My brother Patrick has the restaurant and he's making good money with it. I was told that Patrick Took a receipt my father signed and used a typewriter and on top of my father signature typed "patrick does not have to pay it back if my father dies first". Patrick says he has witnesses that heard my father say he does not have to pay it back. My issue is with the estate lawyer, I sent him him emails asking for information on the case, he did not reply. I have no idea the fee structure for the estate lawyer. I want nothing to do with this case. As I stated i want to contact Patrick's lawyer and make a negotiation for "myself" without my siblings. how do i do this?

I currently moved into an apartment that was out of my budget until my ex boyfriend who is also the father of my unborn child said not to worry and told me he would pay 300 dollars a month to help with the difference. He had also promised to pay my bills for the month of Aug as well, however, went back on that promise yesterday after starting a fight. Everything he said he would do is in texts from him. Is there anything I can do to hold him accountable?

my father came into this country in 1952 as a paper son. In 1959 he got caught but was able to stay in the US as a resident alien-not a citizen. The immigration service did not officially change his name, they just accepted it (I have the FOIA from US Immigration that shows that) He died almost 10 years ago but I cannot finish the administrative filings, i.e., claim the the abandoned funds left in NY state's care because my birth certificate has his old name. Is there any way I can change his name?
