My gh school aged daughter is applying to a new private

My high school aged daughter is applying to a new private school for next year. I have requested that her transcripts and letters of recommendation be sent from her current private school to the school to which she is applying. Her current school says that under FERPA they cannot release her records until they also have her fathers written consent. I have never encountered this before in all the years I have been requesting my daughters educational ( and medical) records be sent to a third party/organization. Her father and I share joint legal custody. my understanding of FERPA is 1) that it only applies to schools receiving federal doe funds, 2) that records must be released at the request of either parent, and 3) that a school does not even have to meet consent requirement if records are requested by a school to which the child is applying. Any clarification would be appreciated. Specifically, is it correct that FERPA requires both parents to consent for release of records to a school to which she is applying?

My ex demanded the 125amanditory disclosure. s attorney gave

My ex demanded the 125amanditory disclosure. His attorney gave me tax returns from 2012-2014 claiming that was all that was necessary as the 2015 has not been filed yet. As part of that disclosure am I entitled to all 2015 bank tax forms which he would have? Or is his attorney correct in that 2012-2014 filled the requirement?

I have attached paragraph 14 from my divorce decree. IMy ex filed a contempt charge and included this paragraph. He is demanding an appraisal of the house, via 14e ii, (I had put the property on the market before he wanted to - does that null 14 e ii ?) At the scheduling conference his attorney requested an appraisal. I refused based on the decree he does not have the right to one. I used realtors to set the price of the house. Could the judge have ordered the appraisal at the scheduling conference?

Almost 17 years ago I made some bad choices in life that

Almost 17 years ago I made some bad choices in life that landed me on the sex offender registry. I did 4 years in prison and 6 years on parole. I'm currently no longer on parole and I'm up to date on my registry. I live in Pennsylvania and I've been dating this women for almost 6 years now. We would like to get married, however she has a 13 year old daughter. Are there any laws that say I cant marry and live with her and her daughter or anything that could get her in trouble. She does know of my past, I have a nice home and a great job.I haven't drank since 2002.

A friend owes me 2000 dollars. I loaned the money in 2008. Then, my friend defaulted. I tried various ways to recover my loan. But, I could not reach my friend as she had no fixed address. When I sued in Small claims court, the sheriff could not serve a sub-peona. Now, I have learnt that the same person is running a susccessful business and I know the address. Can I still sue the person in small claims court, even if 7 years have passed?

My ex is suing me of a court order in our divorce case. He

Hi. My ex is suing me for contempt of a court order in our divorce case. He has demanded a 125 a mandatory disclosure in the state of NH. I am self employed. My tax return treats all income as such providing both profit and loss for the year. So Am insupposed to provide a three month ( for 2016) profit loss statement? I trade stock as part of my income. Do I need to provide profit and loss including that income ( which inaccurately represents what I will make for the year as it is very variable over the course of the year) or can I say I expect my income to be the same this year as it has been for the past three years... Instead of the profit loss statement. That figure will more accurately represent my income.
