If I win my civil case (and get the alimony lowered) against

If I win my civil case (and get the alimony lowered) against my ex-wife and her pastor who made the claims that she had PTSD and it is proven in the civil case thru a subpeoned expert wittness like a state liscensed forensic phychatrist can I then press criminal charges? This pastor using his position and lies and intimidation basically took away my free will because I was afraid to go to court and loss everything. His false assessment of PTSD and the massive settlement he demanded caused me extreme hardship and I would think that would be grounds for criminal charges

I need some advice on what I can do legally to deal with my 17 year old. She is being rebellious and will not come home. She is staying with her girlfriend who is 18 years old. She's been gone for over a month. I picked her up from school on her last day and she came home with me. Now she is gone again. I can't get a hold of her in any way. When I call or text them, it goes straight to voicemail. I want my daughter home. Is there anything I can do??

39;t you have to be a licensed professional in the state of

Don't you have to be a licensed professional in the state of PA in the medical field or a licensed professional in the mental health field that is qualified and trained in the area of evaluating PTSD ? This man is a pastor of a very small church in PA and lives in Conneaut Ohio. I quess I have a problem with your words "in good faith". Can just anybody in PA that has not been trained & liscensed in evaluating PSTD just make the statement that "Jane has PTSD that was caused by you and it will effect her the rest of her life." Isn't this a mental health and medical diagnosis that is a SERIOUS breach of my rights? Can just anybody make claims of PTSD to gain finances? Isn't it serious for a person to make a serious health/mental health diagnosis when you are unqualified-- to gain finances? The claim was made in an e-mail. I settled thru a non-contested divorce because of the intimidation factor by the pastor that if I went to court I would lose everything. I understand the prosecutor's office would handle the subpoena's. Can the people mentioned in my previous question be subpoenaed in the civil trial? Can the e-mail with many other lies and inflated numbers be presented in court as evidence? Thanks allot for your response

In a matter of divorce in which joint custody has been

In a matter of divorce in which joint custody has been awarded and father is the custodial parent. It' states that if the two can not agree the he has final say. Does that mean he can make any decision he chooses? My instance is this mother has adult adhd and as recent studies find the it may be a inherent trait, is it unreasonable for the mother to wish to have the three and half yr old to be tested?

My husband and I are in the final phase of divorce. We have

My husband and I are in the final phase of divorce. We have a Mediated Custody Agreement. He gets to have our daughter, age 10, every weekend, I have her during the week.Over the past 4 months he has failed to provide a healthy emotional environment for Sarah. Such as, he and his parents tell alot, to get away from the telling Sarah hides in the closet and they force her to come out, they call me to come get her then threaten to call the police if I do, things such as this.Consequently Sarah does not want to go visit them and as a mom I refuse to subject her to that.She has been twice during the past 6 weeks. The other 4 weeks, my ex has not asked for her to come over so I took that as a reprieve.This past week she went to the beach with them. My ex's cousin flew in from TN. She is an Occupational Therapist. They made Sarah spend the night with her where upon Richard's cousin, Joanna, began interrogating Sarah about Richard and his parents.She asked the following questions and Sarah thinks recorded the answers -1. What is your favorite thing about mom, your dad, your grandparents?2. Why don't you like to go over there?3. Are you happy with only seeing them once/month?4. Would you like to see them more?5. Then Joanna brought Richard's mom over. Joanna put her arms around her and insisted Sarah tell Richard's mom how GREAT she is.6. Then she told Sarah to go over there more. To ignore the bad and concentrate on the good.Richard and his parent's guilt her constantly telling her It's her fault they don't get to see her, they yell, they talk bad about me (mom), and they drink.My attorney doesn't see a problem with all of this. Is this not considered coersion and intimidation and how would a judge view this?Should I get another attorney?

I have legal guardianship on my 15 yr old granddaughter. She

I have legal guardianship on my 15 yr old granddaughter. She asked to stay with her mother for a while (she has been there 1 1/2 month now). Her mother and step father do not give her, her medicine (she is Bipolar) and has talked her out of going to her medical appt. She will not return my calls, in the past when she was younger, I had to get the police involed due to her age (to get her back home). But now she does not want to come home and I know if I force her to, she will just run away back to her mother. If I do nothing, my son-in-law will turn it against me with the court, saying I abandoned her. I don't know what to do?

Olivia, I come with my latest issue :) Custody/child support

Hi Olivia,I come with my latest issue :)Custody/child support issues still pending. Our temporary order requires no contact between parties. I feel that he is now using the attorney berating letters to contact me (as that's the only line of communication that still remains).Is there anything I can do to get him to leave me alone!Is there wording that's effective to say something to the effect of:We are not going to respond to any additional letters unless they're for the purpose of resolve.Thank you!
