In, if my son has a temporary protective order against him

In Virginia, if my son has a temporary protective order against him until his hearing not to contact his previous girlfriend in any way. Can I, as his parent, call the girls mother and father and talk to them in a friendly manner? My other question his the girl went told the intake office she was a minor even though she is 20 and lied saying she lived with him which they never ever lived together. I believe these two lies were so the judge would sign off on the order. Is that perjury?

My 91 year-old father has dementia and lives in a

My 91 year-old father has dementia and lives in a memory-care facility in CA. We have had a joint-checking account in the past (closed for around 3-4 months now) in which we both were present when it was opened. I have helped my father pay his bills, rent at the facility, etc. since my mother passed away in 2006. I am NOT his power of attorney now, nor have I EVER been. When my wife passed away from cancer in 2014, I became unable to help him anymore, since I have a 15 year-old son to take care of. My father receives Social Security benefits and US Navy benefits from serving I'm WW II. Last night, I received a phone call from the law enforcement agency that serves his residential location. Apparently he is being evicted for the second time. The first time (2015), I took out a $10,000 loan to pay the facility to prevent that from happening. Now this is happening again, and stressing me out because I cannot help him like I did the first time. The Officer kept asking me if I was his power of attorney and I told him I was not, which is the truth. I tol the Officer that I had closed our joint checking account months ago because the facility where he currently lives had tried to withdraw $36,000, then over $20,000 from our account, which included OUR money! Fortunately I contacted the bank in time and it was stopped. Now, the facility is using the Sheriff's Dept to "strong-arm" me with scare tactics. I need help immediately on this. Please contact me, because I do not know what to do.

What can I do about it? If he wants to have a witness that person should have been in his car, not in a separate car.

I am a mother in RI going to a hearing to argue for an

I am a mother in RI going to a hearing to argue for an appeal for child placement (2 very young girls aged 4 and 1.5) which is currently 50/50 for the past 9 months. The previous magistrate did not follow the law in any way whatsoever when making this decision and as a result I needed to appeal (I wanted sole placement).When this all began 9 months ago an before a divorce was filed, the father tried to fire an opening salvo and file a restraining order against me saying I was suicidal and a danger to myself and the children. This restraining order was denied when my doctor testified there were no concerns and this was not true. Despite this, every time we go to court the father and his lawyer keep repeating over and over that I am suicidal and "crazy".Since 50/50 began the father has lied nonstop about every single issue, has been repeatedly late with child support, has been investigated by the state DCYF for child neglect (although they did not remove the children from the home), the pediatrician has documented repeated "clear and obvious child neglect which is a form of child abuse", he has lied to me about our health insurance having an HSA/Flex card (which he uses to pay for visits while I have to pay out of pocket as a result), and has lied about a work benefit that pays for the oldest child's preschool program (he told the judge he could not afford preschool anymore, therefore I agreed to temporarily pay for 2/3 days per week when all the while he had another work benefit/card that he swipes for his 1 day of payment - he lied). I can also prove that he intentionally lied the first week I began paying 2/3 days and stated the oldest child was "too sick to go to school" yet he did not take her to the doctor, after I had already paid for that week of school. I brought the child to the doctor the next day who stated she was obviously not sick, and the father was clearly lying to bust balls because you already paid for school. This constituted additional child neglect the doctor stated.In addition, the oldest child has been repeating horrible, negative comments about me such "new mommy (the father's mother) says you're a bitch", "new mommy says you aren't my mommy anymore", "new mommy says I don't have to school when I don't want to", "daddy says I can't live with you anymore because I have to live with him now", "daddy says he's going to throw you under a bus.....but I don't want you to die, mommy", daddy says we have to move far away so I can't see you anymore", etc. As a result, the pediatrician recommended a family therapist for the oldest child because this sounded like mental abuse. Of course, the counselor was a bust because she wanted to make the sessions all about me and the father and how we can embark on this new adventure of divorced co-parenting. The father refused over and over to play therapy for the child (because he knows exactly what she will say about him and his parents). I have since asked the pediatrician for a referral to a play therapist. The pediatrician, family counselor, and school teachers all agree play therapy is a good idea, yet still the father refuses.My question is, does this sound like I would prevail at the hearing/appeal? He has absolutely nothing on me, nothing whatsoever. He has lied constantly about every detail for 9 months and has committed perjury 2-3 times. He testified he was the primary parent and he does everything for the children, including bathing/cleaning (yet he was investigated for child neglect) and on and on. He testified his daughters were his "whole world and he would just die without them and it would kill him if I was awarded placement because it would limit his role as their father" (exact quote). It was pathetic and disgraceful in its dishonesty and of course the idiot magistrate ate it all up and thought he was a wonderful father. Since then, all of the above has happened. Because of how things went at that first hearing I am very worried about history repeating itself because I do not trust the courts. They are very pro-father in this state these days. The father's lawyer is a big time politician in this state and a total bully in the court room. He often gets right in my face when asking me questions and tries to intimidate me. He also tries to pal around with the judges and schmooze.Thank you very much.

At this point he is trying to prove my daughter as an unfit mother to obtain his goals. So far all has failled, He sent her for drug, and alcohol tests, result negative, he has ordered physiactrict testing, so after 3 testings, they found my daughter to be just fine and totally normal. This man is vindictive, and hateful, and sad to say using his kids. What else can I do , as the kids caregiver since birth, to put an end to this nightmare.
