My son father is facing assault & battery charges on a
my son father is facing assault & battery charges on a minor, contributing to a delinquency of a minor, possession of marijauana, and drunk in public charges by the Commonweath of Virginia. He received all of these charges at the same time. An EPO was set for my son, and I also went to court in which a Preliminary Protective order was granted for my son and myself. If a final protective order is granted for my son and me will that override any visitation order? If the Commonweath of Virginia finds the father guilty will they most likely terminate his parental rights?

I am in Wisconsin. My wife is listed as guardian and I'm listed as Co Guardian of our 6yr grandson. We are currently going through a divorce and I'm curious if she has more authority than I do or do we have equal say? In other words, can she limit or restrict my visitation with my grandson?
I'm a little lost on what to do. I'm having a baby next
hello!I'm a little lost on what to do. I'm having a baby next month and her Dad doesn't want to help me with anything. He is now with a different woman (He went back to his ex, they have 2 children together). Back in January this year I had an issue with her because when he found out I was pregnant she wanted to hurt me and I had to call 911 and filed a police report. My concern is: What about I file Child support and he lives with her. Is he going to keep my baby several days? I'm scared. Should I just not ask for Child support from him?thank you
I want to grant custody of my child to my sister and her
I want to grant custody of my child to my sister and her husband for reasons of safety, from myself and my ex-husband. My Ex is not on the birth certificate and has no legal documents stating he has any rights to him at all. How do I start this process? Will a judge grant my ex full custody simply because he is the biological father or will they look at what is the best environment for him?

My brother and I were raised in care and we were always
My brother and I were raised in foster care and we were always under the assumption that we were half-brothers (same mother). I recently read some old court documents that listed my brother's father as the 'natural father' of both of us. Is the legal term 'natural father' the same as biological father or is the term used more loosely? Could this guy be my biological father?
Me and my Fiance, soon to be wife, live in Jamestown NewView more family law questions
Me and my Fiance, soon to be wife, live in Jamestown New York. My Fiance has sole custody and placement with her one and only child of 5 years. She is trying to join the Air Force and we would like to know if it is possible to even attempt to make this decision and if so how we go about taking this issue to court. The child is very close to me and considers me his (real dad) and is also very attached to his mother. I myself am a former Marine and have never been in any trouble with the law and has always maintained employment and the biological father just got off of parole for selling drugs with prior charges that ended up with 2 orders of protection against his own son that has now expired. We feel that the any court would find it reasonable that we maintain custody but neither of us know the actual law.
