I live in GA and my 16 year old granddaughter lives in MA
I live in GA and my 16 year old granddaughter lives in MA with her paternal aunt who is her guardian. I am aware that being 16 she can request a change of guardianship herself using form MCP340. She would like me to become her guardian. My question is: Do her biological parents need to consent to the guardianship? Currently, both her mother (my daughter) and her father (which were never married) are incarcerated in Framingham, MA. Earlier this month my granddaughter ran away from her aunt's home (in Medway, MA) and went to Framingham where she met with her mother and was joined by her father (who lives in Milford, MA) and together, her parents took her to Tempo Young Adult Resource Center on Henry St in Framingham which is a "safe-house" for teenagers. She was given a bed for the next 21 days there. The guardian aunt notified the Medway Police of the situation, and both parents were arrested for interferring and kidnapping of a blood relative with their court date to be on Nov 10th at Wrentham District Court. The aunt has a "no contact" order placed on both parents. My daughter has no objection to my granddaughter living with me, as they both had signed guardianship to me 3 times in the past (they both have addiction problems) but her father will not go along with this. Does he, as her biological father have the right to reject my granddaughter's choice even though he lost custody of her (through the courts) the beginning of this year and now this month has a "no contact" order placed on him? I will be traveling to MA if/when my granddaughter requests such a change for the court's approval.If her father is allowed to deny her this change, would it be possible to lead me in the right direction so that I can take steps to remove her from her current living conditions?Thank you in advance for any advice you can give in this matter.Karen Cournoyer
A few weeks ago, a judge ruled that a mediator's report be
Hello,a few weeks ago, a judge ruled that a mediator's report be "temporarily" adopted. The order stated that my ex's wife have NO Contact with my older child. He stated that if there were any violations of this that he would order custody of both children (physical and legal) revert back to me. Yesterday, my ex brought his wife to my younger daughter's ball game where my son and I were present. I have security footage from the schools security cameras where the game was held and also a witness who saw her there. My question is if the pictures are enough for the judge to consider the No Contact order broken?
I am trying to figure out a way to record interactions
I am trying to figure out a way to record interactions between my ex and I to prove to the court that he is verbally and emotionally abusive when people are not around and sometimes in the presence of our daughter that would be legal.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: OregonJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We are in an extended custody battle and I have been trying to obtain a "no contact" order, but he has visitations (I was advised to get a mediator to facilitate the exchange of our daughter) and because he generally talks perfectly to me in front of witnesses, the court says I do not have enough proof to be granted a no contact orderJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just need ot know how I can get the proof needed if I am unable to legally record and provide that as evidence
My kids father and I got into a fight and guns were drawn
My kids father and I got into a fight and guns were drawn and he was arrested (The first and only time this has happened). Our kids were in the home at the time so now the Department of Children and Families are involved. I was advised to get a restraining order and file for a custody agreement within the courts. I did but the restraining order was dropped and I do not want to press charges, I just want counseling and mediation for my family. He has been a great dad to the kids never harming them but our relationship was not a good one due to constant arguing NOT physical abuse. We have had physical altercations before but it was more pushing one another. When the DCF worker came to my home she implemented a safety plan which expires tomorrow and wants me to move out of my home. She also told me to not drop the restraining order and the charges or else they would take my children away, which is crazy. I have always been a great mother, a active member in society, volunteer and work 2 jobs to provide for my children and don't want to lose them but I also dont want to press charges or keep a restraining order in place just to please DCF if it will hurt my children and our family. We lived together but he can not return to the home due to the no contact order with the domestic violence charges pending but I did advise the state prosecutor and the public defender I do not want to press charges I just want this situation mediated and counseling for us all. The state says they decide whether to move forward or not and that could posssibly have my kids testify in court. THEY ARE 5 YRS OLD btw which I believe is a scare tactic. I dont know what to do or what I can do, but I don't want my children taken away but I dont want to be pressured or forced to incriminate their dad or myself. What can I do now, I need some legal advice?
