I have a 43 yr old brother w cerebral palsy. My mother does

I have a 43 yr old brother w cerebral palsy. My mother does not have guardianship of him. He lives with his girlfriend and we believe that he is being taken advantage of financially. The living environment is also disgusting. If he were asked I think he would say he wants to stay. I think he has been manipulated and used. He doesn't have the intelligence or comprehension of money or his true situation. How difficult would it be to get guardianship over him so we could get him out of that situation. I am confident that a doctor or psychologist would confirm his inability to make any of his own life decisions and the impact they have.JA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?Customer: ohioJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: his IQ was tested it was 40.

My wife has had restraining order against me for a year now,

My wife has had restraining order against me for a year now, no findings of abuse in the order or ever in our relationship. She has since had our child and has continually written me throughout the order being in place. Mostly ultimatums and promising not to get me in trouble if I respond... Thereare easily 50 plus emails and I have yet to respond because it states, no direct or indirect contact in the pfa. She has also written my family and extended family and even let my parents meet the baby and is now saying they cant see it anymore. I am about to go to a lawyer and file for divorce and am wondering what rights I have and what approach would be the most reasonable. Thank you in advance
