I have a out of state visitation order set. My ex, my child,

I have a out of state visitation order set. My ex, my child, and I are originally from new jersey. We all moved to north Carolina together to be closer to his family . 1and 1/2 years later my ex kicked me and my kids out of the house. He took the car he bought me , closed our joint account and opened an account in his name where all the funds were deposited and left me with nothing but $200. My mom had to come pick me and my kids up . I only took what I could fit. Then he filed for full custody in no Carolina. I have recored all phone calls. He then told me he was moving back but his mom already paid the lawyer so we set a joint custody order. He told me he would not hold me to it. I have this all recorded. I know I was stupid I should of believed him. Now he is requesting to take for 3 weeks. He is not taking off of work during this visit and he claims his mom will watch her but she is currently fighting cancer and don't feel she is able to. I would really like to see if this order can be changed. Starting with jurisdiction I have no connection out there and he kicked me out. To top it all he is a functional alcoholic and never cared for a child by himself

We live in Nj. My husband and I are owners of the house we live in now. He has an 18-year-old who just graduated from HS. I want the 18-year-old out of the house (he does have grand-parents nearby who have no problem having him staying with them). I would like to know if it's required to provide shelter to an 18-year-old in NJ? And as 50% of the house owner, do I have the right to refuse have another adult living with me?Thank you so much for your time in advance.

I have an adult child (29yrs) that i had to get a

i have an adult child (29yrs) that i had to get a restraining order on last year but when i had the police present it to her when she was returning my car after stealing it on New Years eve last year. The police said that since I had the year of her birth wrong, It was invalid even after going through the courts to get it. At that time they said they could serve here with a no trespass order. they removed her then. Then the father of her son was killed in a car accident on July 30th of last year, i went thru the process to retain guardianship of him. My daughter in the meantime was a heroin addict in and out of hospitals. She did sign over custody but I have not had it completed for a court order. I kept supporting her to stay out of my house but i can't continue to do so. So when I saw her at the hospital the last time, I allowed her to stay in my house till she got better and to learn how to raise her son.JA: OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this.Customer: I was not done yetJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Now my daughter was just cuaght stealing my car again while i sleep. I am at my wits end. I want to know if I can enforce the no trespass order even though I allowed her in my house to give her a chance.
