My wife moved to Tennessee and some period later filed for

My wife moved to Tennessee and some period later filed for divorce. She told the judge she didn't know where i was and gave them an address she knew I would not be at. She was granted a divorce by publication while still telling me she wanted to work things out. Apparently a ruse to get all property and even told the judge I didn't even know my daughter and was more like a "one night stand" (while my daughter was living with me). I found out a few years afterward the divorce was completed. I never had my day in court! She also went to juvenile court and they ordered me to pay 18 yrs of child support even though my daughter lived with me some of the time. What can I do?

My son has court ordered supervised visit with his daughter

My son has court ordered supervised visit with his daughter and has had for a year(He was a former drug user). My husband and I do the supervising. The child lived with her mother until she supposedly admitted herself into mental hospital 2 weeks ago. The mother of the child was staying with her grandmother until my son found out she was in a mental ward and he now has his daughter full time with both grandparents providing daycare during work hours. Since the court orders show the mother as custodial parent we are fearful if she gets out and comes to get her daughter that we have to give her to her if it is not within the visitation timeframes. I guess its possible the courts would say neither of them are capable of caring for the daughter (3 yrs old) and I was wondering if there is something we as grandparents can file to avoid her being turned over to the state.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Washington state.I probably should have asked this to the family law section.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: There is an agreement between lawyers that we keep things the way they are until she (the mother) is out of treatment.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Having gone into treatment she lost her job and her home and most likely will move in with her mother who has a 3 bedroom house with 7 people living there already.
