My childrens paternal grandmother is suing me for partial

My childrens paternal grandmother is suing me for partial custody of my children when I have never kept them from her and have always allowed visitations. Does the court have a right to court order a set schedule? I am in PAJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in PennsylvaniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no I am currently unemployed low on fundsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Their grandmother and I have always had an open communication, and good standing relationship. Her son is incarcerated for domestic violence against myself and is also a Meghans law offender I am trying to understand why any visitation would need court ordered if I have always allowed her visitation and we have had a good standing relationship. This is actually detrimental to my kids and I as I have no way to afford a lawyer. I like the flexibility we have always had and now this has put a huge strain on our relationship

I am a California resident, who finalized my divorce a year

I am a California resident, who finalized my divorce a year ago, and my husband and I have joint custody (50/50) of our 10-year old daughter. My husband has just learned that he has a terminal, incurable illness and has less than a year to live. He has not asked me, but wants to convince me to accept joint/shared custody of our daughter (with his sister who will be the executor of his will and estate), after he passes. He wants to insert his sister into the current shared custody relationship we have, and is even planning to have his sister move to California, to live in his house, and “take over” his responsibilities, after he dies. He has been planning behind my back to be able to put this arrangement in place, and I assume that his last will and testament will probably contest the transition of our daughter's custody to me (100%), after he passes. Is this possible? What could he do to try to paint me as an unfit mother, and what other actions could he take to force his will to my custody situation (again, after he dies)?

My cps caseworkers have padded my case with fabricated

My cps caseworkers have padded my case with fabricated evidence & took my son & new new baby from me too. My ex calls in false reports & files an sapcr and his friend who is a caseworker, files supporting affidavits & within two months of harassment I sign pmc over to my parents, judge dismissed dfps case closed. Later I realize he filed pro se, but used cps to back his case, and it wasn't a cps case, he filed a writ of attachment as I'd he was a government emtity. Prosecutor and judges recused when I showed them what was happening, and they took her bc of safety concerns while with father bc they took me to jail for a ticket, and alleged he failed a swab test. It wasn't verified by a lab, it was left on my table, and the investigator couldn't produce it at all. I took it to have it analyzed at the er. It was determined a faint line was negative afterall. My babycgot rsv in foster careThey alleged my husband the father, and didn't give him classes, but it's crazy they used his negative swab they d u don't even take to a lab, or court, because it was used to build a case on me. He's not ordered to classes, I am. Allegations weren't mine. My baby is gone. My ex is using his friends at d fps to devastate my life. Help!!!!!

I am the grandparent of a 16 year old boy. He has a really

I am the grandparent of a 16 year old boy. He has a really good boy. No behavioral problems in school, with the law or drugs and alcohol. He respects his parent but he is being abused by the stepfather mentally, emotionally, and just yesterday the man hit him in the head because he was mad at him. His mother is a full time student and works. She is out if the house most days and was unaware of what was happening until I moved in and brought it to her attention. Of course her husband is mad and wants her to put me out. I told her that I will leave but not leave the 16 year old here because it is not a safe environment for him. There are two small children 6/8 from the marriage and on any given day have to dress and feed themselves because thier stay at home dad thinks they can do these things without supervision. What is your advise for in dealing with the 16 year old boy who does not want me to leave him here due to fear of what the step father will do and say to him when his mother leaves the house.
