My ex-wife called the hotel I had reservations at with my

My ex-wife called the hotel I had reservations at with my children pretending to be my wife in order to "confirm" my reservations. When she found out i had canceled the reservations, she became irate and demanded to know who changed the reservations and was insistent that I was staying there. the Desk clerk was concerned enough she called me to confirm the reservations were canceled. Is it a crime for her to impersonate my wife to obtain personal information about me? the call was recorded. How do I obtain a copy of the recording?JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: We live in NJ, but the reservations were in TN.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I emailed my friend who is a family lawyer.

I had a hearing last friday 7/15 that was regarding

I had a hearing last friday 7/15 that was regarding modifying visitation with my son's dad. At the conclusion the magistrate said he would review and decide his orders within 30 days but that he was entering a judgement effective immediately for us both to take an online parenting class. I then asked (i was representing myself pro se) what we should do regarding a trip his dad wants to take him on next week. The magistrate said he would render his decision within the week. I just today saw the immediate order listed today and I'm worried that I won't see anything more before friday......Is there anything I can do to make sure there is a decision in place before I have to send my son (maybe unnecessarily) to his dad's on Sun??

In continuation of yesterdays question. My daughters

In continuation of yesterdays question. My daughters mentally abusive mom gave her a written notice to move out in 30 days. Meanwhile, she is still under a family court agreement to provide and care for her as a child support credit to me through the end of August. Then the agreement says whoever the child is staying whith should be provided for by that parent. Shes trying to push her out to me without wanting to have any financial obligation, not to mention its cruel to threaten and try to throw out a 19 year old girl who is a really good kid, doing well in college and working part time. The way I see it what she is doing is illegal and improper and possibly violating our agreement. Doesnt she need to file a legal eviction with the court? Right now I have no room to take her with me and cant afford it without the mothers financial help. What can I do to stop this nonesense and get the mother to do things properly?

I filed a Motion to Modify my divorce decree in regards to

I filed a Motion to Modify my divorce decree in regards ***** ***** since my ex wife is not allowing me to co-parent appropriately. I am going at this pro se and her parents have dipped into their "war chest" to provide her with one. I am asking for increased visitation time such as the entire summer as I live 3 hours away from her and cannot see her during the week. They have declined all mediation suggestions and opted for a hearing. I know that I need to present witnesses. I have selected 3 (Pastor, Sunday School Director, and my current wife) witnesses, but I am unsure of what questions to ask. Can you help?
