My daughters relationship with her fiancé has gone bad. They

My daughters relationship with her fiancé has gone bad. They have a 3 month old daughter together. My daughter also has a 2 1/2 year old son. Not from this man. Our daughter lives with us along with both children. We are the grand parents. We let her fiancé move in with us as well. Now things are not good. We want him gone. He has no place of his own He could possibly go back to his parents.I feel a big child custody battle coming?, What rights does he truly have? We feel he's a flight risk! Won't allow him to take the kids from the home? I guess my question is What should we do? Lawyer up and be prepared?

I live near Houston Texas. I have two girls, 10 & 13, with

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I live near Houston Texas. I have two girls, 10 & 13, with my ex. We are both remarried and he has two additional children with his wife. Our custody agreement is 50/50. For the last couple of years I have had to deal with my daughters step mother and her behavior towards my oldest daughter. Stepmom will often punish (not physically) when the kids leave clothes and other personal property at my house. She often yells at both and blames the oldest for problems that exist between stepmom and her father. Stepmom accuses my daughter constantly of trying to play each side. That she lies about everything. She has called her selfish and jealous over her half sisters, both are under the age of 3. My daughter no longer wants to be at that house but feels conflicted because she wants to continue to see her dad and sisters. I want what is in the best interest of both of my kids and I don't think them being subject to her ridiculous rule and belittling is healthy for them. My ex knows the problems but will not acknowledge them to me. He takes his wife's side and punishes them for being disrespectful to her. I had a long and drawn out divorce as he and his mother were seeking full custody of my daughters. I do not want to cause more turmoil for my kids but I cannot let this continue. I think it's unfair to ask them to pick sides, although my oldest has made it very clear that she no lingers wants to live with her dad. I feel stuck. Any advice?

In the Verified Petition Of Marriage it states "Petitioner

In the Verified Petition For Dissolution Of Marriage it states "Petitioner wishes the Court to divide the following debts/personal property: a. Retirement. However I indicated in the questions that was not my wishes but that Petitioner and Respondent both keep their own individual retirements. When referring to the Decree Of Dissolution Of Marriage and Settlement Agreement it states "The Petitioner will have sole possession of the following items of property: All retirement in Petitioner's name." A second line indicates the same provision for the Respondent. Is there a conflict between these two documents? We do not want our individual retirements divided. Do I need to edit my answers in order to make those wishes clear?

I was in the Hospital from March 7, 2016 until May 18, 2016

Hi, I was in the Hospital from March 7, 2016 until May 18, 2016 due to a heart attack and double bypass operation. I have not worked since then but am on social Security. I was in the Hospital in Co and I live in UT. My wife called me about a week after the bypass operation and told me she needed some money. I went online and got a "Go Fund Me" page, where I collected about $2300 from friends and relatives. I allowed the money to go into her account because she said she was desperate for money to pay the bills, due the fact that I was not working. I asked her to send me back $300 so that when I got out of the Hospital in CO, I could fly home. I also had a small 401k from my job, that I was going to cash in and get about $1300. I told her to keep $200 and send me the rest. Then she told me that she sent me a money order for $1100. she then told me that when I got home, she and the children would not be there because she wanted a divorce. It has now been tow months, and she has me blocked on her phone and won't respond to my texts regarding where the money is. She told me that she reported the money order as lost, and it would take 45-60 days to get the money back from the place she bought the money order from. It has now been two months and she will not respond to my texts regarding where my money is. I would like to take her to court to find out where the money is, and where she bought it so it can be investigated if she EVER bought it at all, and why, being it has been 2 months, I cant get the money. Thanks. Bradd Friedman***@******.***
