Me and wife of 34 years live in GA. She has allowed her sister to stay with us while trying to get established in this area. I told her before her sister arrived I do not want her sister here and do not want to live with her sister. That was 3 months ago. What can I legally do. Can I just leave and pay half rent? Can I force her sister to leave legally?
In May I filed a protective order against my husband (in
In May I filed a protective order against my husband (in Maryland) for drug abuse related problems that were detrimentally affecting me and my three kids. We went to court and the judge granted a one year PO ex parte. My husband immediately went to rehab, got clean and sober, found post rehab counseling, etc. and is doing very well. He even got a job in August. I had him come home though that put us both in violation of the order. I recently filed the paperwork to rescind the PO so we can go back to normal life and not worry about being caught together with the PO still in place. When we have to go to court (I'm assuming we will have to talk to the judge) to have it rescinded by the judge we will have to state our cases as to why we think he should go back. I read somewhere that if it is apparent to the judge that we were violating the order if they wanted to we could both be in big trouble and lose all the progress we've made as a couple and family. Do you have any advice for how to approach the court time so that we don't get in trouble? BTW, with my request to rescind I attached documents I recieved from his counselor stating they thought he was doing well and was ready to begin couples/family counseling but that the order would have to be lifted. Included were drug test documents, all negative for two months.

In Tennesse I'm in a custody case and my daughters mother boy friend threaten me. I threaten him back over the phone as she was recording all of this. She then but my 15 year old daughter on the phone to talk with me. She cut the tape and transferred it to another recording device. It only has my voice, her voice, and my daughter's voice. She has a temporary order of protection. My question is will she be allowed to use that tape in court?

My brother's wife issued a restraining order against him so
My brother's wife issued a restraining order against him so he cannot be near her or his kids. They live in WA. The TRO stated some bad stuff that was done to her but was not and could never be proved (his word vs hers). In regards ***** ***** kids, the TRO stated he yelled at the kids and once drove through town at a very high rate of speed with only the youngest kid in the car (6 YR OLD). It also described an instance of driving with anger saying he tailgated a car with everyone in it for a period of time.My questions are:1.) At the TRO hearing he wants to represent himself (no money). Is this doable?2.) The bad stuff she describes that was done to her could he be charged criminally?3.) Will the judge just uphold the TRO at the upcoming hearing and order some kind of counseling/mediation to both parties and/or kids so they can get both sides and make a recommendation back to the court on whether it should be permanent or removed?He had moved out of the main house into another area on the same land and asked for a divorce and mediation as they really have very limited assets. The day before the scheduled mediation he was served with the TRO.All he is asking for is mediation so they can come up with Child Support, Custody Agreement etc. and not spend money on lawyers as there are really no assets.Appreciate the response and hopefully Family Law is the correct category.
