We are at our wits end. I was wondering if it is ok to write

Hello, we are at our wits end. I was wondering if it is ok to write the judge a letter in a custody visitation matter to maybe get an earler date. My son has a case in Charlotte, NC. the Trial for joint custody is end of September. However there is an existing order that the mother refuses to follow. we know about the Motions for contempt and we are filing same, but that might not be jeard until September also. Meanwhile my son can not see his child. He has texted, called, and even sent her demand letter, he has went to the house with police and either she doesn't answer or says the child is not there. I thought an attorney may have better luck but they all want thousands up front that my son does not have. Is there anything else we can do other than wait?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: NCJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes. But all want retainer that my son does not haveJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

My husband and I are common law married in the stau, sorry,

Hello. My husband and I are common law married in the stauJA: Because civil law varies by state, can you tell me where this is?Customer: sorry, I hit send too soon. We live in Texas and filed a declaration of marriage with the county we lived in at the time. We file a joint federal tax return. My husband is a union member & they are refusing to cover me under his insurance because they are federally funded and our "informal" marriage means I am not eligible for his benefits. Can you confirm that the federal government would recognize our marriage since the state of Texas recognizes us as married?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, we haven't.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I think that's all. I was just trying to do some research to see if

My daughter who is 17 has an ex-boyfriend who is 19 telling

My daughter who is 17 has an ex-boyfriend who is 19 telling people that she was pregnant and had an abortion when in fact they never had sex at any time . He posted it on Snapchat and is texting other people and telling them the same thing . She finally broke away from him last October 2016 and he will not stop trying to defame her . What can I doJA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?Customer: PennsylvaniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I tried to get a hold of one in our town of Indiana Pennsylvania but he said nobody takes those types of situations and that I should call the law board for suggestionsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I also found out that in January 2016 he and his family had applied for SSI for him and at the court hearing someone in his family said that she was pregnant which again is a total lie and the only thing I can think of as to why they said that was someone told me that they could have possibly gotten more money if they told the judge he was disabled as well as having a child on the way . Somehow I am sure you can get a hold of the court papers for his SSI hearing and it should be on it because I did see a copy of that at the time
