I don't know if I have to formally ask another question

I don't know if I have to formally ask another question here, or not. The question I have is on the same topic. Basically, my ex is holding my daughter's, not his daughter, baby pictures hostage. He will not give them to me or her unless she meets him in person. She does not want anything to do with him, but we want the pictures back. What should I do?

My father passed away 28 months ago; he owned property in

my father passed away 28 months ago; he owned property in Florida and had an IRA with Fidelity plus other investment accounts; Months before my dad passed she wanted to keep the house in Florida, at this time she had one of his IRA accounts transferred to her name and the property in Florida transferred to her name. the money from this particular acct was to be split between myself and my 2 sisters. these decisions and legal procedures all took place while my father was in pain and on powerful pain medications within the last 6 months of his life. there are also other issues but I would like to know if there is any legal action that may still be available to my family; her actions were obviously planned and her intentions obvious. Again, this is only one example

I own a home with my ex, never married but i left the home

I own a home with my ex, never married but i left the home because of drug use and the growing of weed and numerous other reasons like emotional and mental abuse. We've lived in the house since 2005, he convinced me to do a modification of the loan with the promise of no drugs being used, grown or sold and that his family would not stay there. None of that happened and the drugs, emotional, and physical abuse continued and even worsened so i packed my clothes and personal belongings and moved out while he was asleep. As of today he is 2 payments behind and has been since i've left and continues the drug use and the growing weed with selling it also. What can i do? I would love to fight for my home if that's possible. He doesn't have the income because he only receives social security. Please help....

I have made friends with a very nice undocumented immigrant.

I have made friends with a very nice young undocumented immigrant. She has been here 7 years and has an American born son that is 4 years old. Her ex husband lives in Atlanta and provides no financial or parental support but is very threatening of her with her current status, not even considering his own. I also understand that he was physically abusive to her in the past which led to their separation. That being said, all she has is a passport and a Mexican ID Card and wants to take her son back to Mexico to see her biological parents but the ex husband has threatened to contact authorities and report the child being taken without consent. There are no legal papers for custody but she does possess all of the child's documentation.What can she do to avoid further conflicts with this once abusive and absentee father?
