Our family went away on spring break and when we came back,

Our family went away on spring break and when we came back, there was a card stuck in the door from APS. We were shocked as my mother has been happily living with me since 1995. My siblings are not willing to share the responsibility so we happily take care of her. She is 82 years old. She had a stroke in 2010 but she is fully in control of her faculties. I am wondering why APS came to our house.

Is it proper and even worth it to file a motion to strike

Is it proper and even worth it to file a motion to strike answer in a child support modification case?I filed to modify for the purpose of reflecting the new time sharing order. I also plead facts to lay the foundation that there should be no past due support because the children were in my care.I filed a motion for default as no answer was filed or served in me. Turns out though that that mother did answer but only filed it. She did not serve me in any way. After reviewing, I noticed the sworn answer is not signed but is notarized.That makes it defective, correct?

Hello! We received a notice from the USPS my husband has a certified letter from CPS. We aren't sure what this could be about, but, in the past few years, we have been targets of people trying to take our children due to custody disputes. CPS, howeverJA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?Customer: Texas. The complainants have always targeted me in the past. One question I have is, he is a physician. A baby he delivered who was born to a drug/addictied mother recently died of SIFs. Would CPS typically contact him this way as a witness!JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. We do have a family attorney. I'm just nervous since CPS has never contacted us this way beforeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Our baby is in the adoption process. But his birth father has been fighting us since he was 6 months old. We have always had full custody at the request of the birth mother. This has been the main motivation for our being CPS targets.

My issue is very similar to the one on your website. I have

Hello My issue is very similar to the one on your website. I have an issue with my mother and am interested in filing a restraining order against her. At this point in time, I told her that she is not allowed to be around my son, and she is showing up to his job and emailing him.JA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?Customer: ILJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She is almost identical to the issue that you have on your website. She is saying horrible things about me to my son. She is threatening to try and get me fired. She is threatening to get my significant other fired. All because I will not allow her to see him. My son is partially responsible as he has told some lies about us to her so that he can get out of doing chores, not paying a portion of his allowance to his tuition and having a phone. He is having typical teenage issues...but instead of her guiding him correctly...she is filling his head up with lies. It is now causing issues with my relationship with my son.
