I live in PA. For the past four months, my son,

I live in PA. For the past four months, my son, daughter-in-law and my two grandchildren live in DE. My son and daughter-in-law will not allow me to see my grandchildren. I have had one 90 minute visit with them in the last year and a half. How do I get visitation with my grandchildren without putting a huge financial strain on myself? My son is wealthy and I am not by any means.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The excused I have been given as to why I cannot see my grandchildren are: A year and a half ago when I was able to have my 10 year old grandson for an overnighter, I allowed him to stay up past his bedtime so he could visit with some of his friends whom he had not seen in over a year. Also, last year on my grandson's Birthday (they were living in CA at the time), I sent him birthday gifts which included a few pieces of candy in his new clothes pockets because his Birthday was right before Halloween. My son and daughter-in-law were furious because they did not like the fact that I sent candy to my grandson. They don't allow him to have candy; therefore, they said that I was disrespecting and not following their rules. However, because my grandson was adopted from Russia when he was two and a half years old, my daughter-in-law didn't think he was bonding to her like a child should bond to his mother. They had him to a Therapist who said Jake had a condition called Reactive Attachment Disorder/Attachment & Bonding Disorder. However, the moment I met Jake, he and I had an immediate connection. My daughter-in-law is extremely threatened by the close relationship Jake and I have shared since he came home to us. As a result, she and my son will not allow me to have any contact with my grandchildren. I cannot speak to them on the phone, I can't Skype and I can't even send him letters because my son returns them to me unopened. My husband dropped off Christmas presents for the boys at my daughter-in-law's parents home, knowing we would not get to see them. The presents were dropped off, unopened in my driveway. Please help me.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I live in PA My son and his family, for the past four months live in DE.

I signed a mediated divorce settlement last week. In it;

I signed a mediated divorce settlement last week. In it; "either parent may apply for a passport on behalf of the child. Both parents shall be entitled to travel internationally with the child with consent of the other parent. Consent for international travel shall not be unreasonably withheld by either parent." "Both parents shall be permanently enjoined from permanently removing the child from this Texas jurisdiction"1. Due to the souring relationship between the U.S. and the Phillipines lately, Is it "(unreasonable)" to deny travel with the child at this time, until relations between our countries get better?2. Her home is in the southern island of Mindinao, also the home of the Abu sayaf muslim extremist group, who kidnaps and executes foreigners. Is it also "(unreasonable)" to deny her international travel with the child to this region because of this terrorism threat/risk?3. Is it possible to insert a bond requirement of $20k before her traveling with the child, since she will be getting 60k out of our retirement account upon dissolution of our marriage?4.What is the legal interpretation of (unreasonable)?5. If I refuse to allow her international travel after this agreement if finalized, what are her options?

I'm 17 and I want to move out, but my parents won't give me

I'm 17 and I want to move out, but my parents won't give me their permission. I can support myself and I have somewhere to live, and I've heard from a few people that once you're 17 or 17 1/2 you can move out and my parents couldn't do anything. Is this true? And if they can't, could they prosecute the person I move in with?
