I had a child support hearing the last week of May in Ohio.

I had a child support hearing the last week of May in Ohio. The juvenile court judge in Hamilton County stated that he would make a ruling by 6/29/016. A ruling still hasn't been made. Do I have any recourse at this time to compel the court to issue the ruling? Is here a period of time I would have to wait before it is an issue? What could be the reason that it takes this long to rule? Do I have any options?

I have a question about protective order. My wife obtained

I have a question about protective order. My wife obtained protective order against me. My two children 13 are 14 are not included, but the juvenile court gave her sole temporary custody. Children stay with me all summer and their mother is threatening them when ever they go visit her for a day or two. Also I have prove that she attacked me previously, and my children saw it and can conform. In addition, there was an incident when she came to my home without my permission, asked my children to open the door and my daughter did, she came in when I was at work. Can I file protective order against her????

I live in Tennessee and recently I spanked my son who was

I live in Tennessee and recently I spanked my son who was staying with me and spanked his brother who lives with me. My son from my ex had a mark which turned to a bruise. He was spanked after my son who lives with me and I never spank normally. It's an end all nothing else has worked kind of deal. My ex called the police once he was home after I had gotten permission to spank him and she agreed because she is very worried that he will be involved in juvenile court because if his behaviour. I informed here after the spanking that I do not want to spank him ever again and that he had a red mark because he was squirming around and the tip of my belt hit his upper hip. Well it turned to a bruise and she had cps involved. We live in two different counties and so Hamilton county cps worker came out and talked to my wife now and I and our children and we were very open and explained everything and the behaviour s leading up to the spabkings and they were completely satisfied and had no problem with the whole situation. Butt I just got a call from the case worker handling my ex wife's side and she wants me to meet her at cps in a county that I do not live in and said. Quote I would like to meet with you and discuss the significant size bruise and how we are going to handle this situation. I feel she already wants to cause a problem regardless of no marks on my older son and being told by Hamilton county cps I did nothing wrong and they have closed their end after talking with all of us. What should I do. Do I have to meet with her and what should I say or not say or do...

My brother and I were raised in care and we were always

My brother and I were raised in foster care and we were always under the assumption that we were half-brothers (same mother). I recently read some old court documents that listed my brother's father as the 'natural father' of both of us. Is the legal term 'natural father' the same as biological father or is the term used more loosely? Could this guy be my biological father?

I'm 16 years old, 17 on August 29th, in South Carolina. My

Hi, I'm 16 years old, 17 on August 29th, in South Carolina. My mother took in my boyfriend in early August of 2015, when I was still 15. She cared for him, being that at the time he had nowhere to go. She has just recently kicked him out. But I am pregnant. I want to be with the father of my baby, for him to help support me and the baby and so that my baby has both parents, not just one at a time, but my mother won't let me see him at all. I have wanted to go up and visit his family but I cannot because of my mom, and I don't want to do it behind her back, partially because of legal consequences, if there is any. I have read that it is not an offense to "run away" persay at 17 in SC, and that police cannot bring me home, but she can file a lawsuit against his family for harboring a minor? I want to be with him, because I'm looking out for the baby to have both parents, and I love him of course and don't want to be separated. How can I legally get my mom to let me live with him and his dad and sisters? They have an extra bedroom, and at my house, there is 2 bedrooms for me and 3 other kids. The 3 other kids share one bedroom with one twin bed they all sleep on. I cannot raise a baby by myself there in such a crowded space, and at his dad's I have a guy who will support me, his family will also support me, and we have our own room there. I just want to know what I can legally do when I turn 17. If I can go to his dad's house, without having to necessarily come back to my moms house? Or if I can marry him, his parents would approve, my mom I'm not too sure. Please help, I need to know what I can do!JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: SCJA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Is there anything else the Family Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: NoJA: OK.
