My son and his girlfriend are involved in what is turning

My son and his girlfriend are involved in what is turning out to be a very ugly custody battle. She was in jail for 3 weeks on a bench warrant, is charged with 5 counts of theft, including stealing $40,000 from her own mother, faces prison time, has no job, no place to live, no car and shouldn't drive anyway because she has a seizure disorder. There is a restraining order against her to try to prevent her from leaving the state with the child. She also has a gambling problem which caused them to lose their home and she has a drug problem. She is trying everything she can think of to try to gain control of the situation--most of them are 99% lies. Today she threatened to charge my son with rape and have him arrested. My question is this--can the police arrest someone just based on a statement such as this or does there have to be proof of some kind

I have Power of Attorney for my mother. She was diagnosed

I have Power of Attorney for my mother. She was diagnosed with Dementia. She signed the documents a few days before the diagnosis. That was a month ago. Her condition seems to have gotten much worse very fast. My problem is, with her condition, she's physically fine, but her mind isn't and she thinks she's fine. She has convinced my two brothers she fine. My two brothers went and had her sign a new Power of Attorney. From what I understand, I have to be taken to court to change me as her agent. Is this right?

My husband is a stay at home dad, for the past 5 years. He

My husband is a stay at home dad, for the past 5 years. He home schools the oldest two. We have 4 children together. I work fulltime. I left him about 6 weeks ago. I'm giving him child support for taking care of the kids through the week and I get them on the weekend. He has no desire to get a job to take care of himself. We would both like a dissolution rather then divorce. The problem is that the kids are missing their milestones, and he's lax on hygiene. How do I make sure the money I'm giving him goes to the kids, rather than him? He still pays his bills, yet he doesn't have to work. I'm currently staying with my mom. He has grounds for divorce based on adultery, although we both agreed on an open marriage ahead of time; that was over a year ago. What should I do?
