My we are the Pattersons. and Arlene. We have a question
Hello My we are the Pattersons. Jim and Arlene. We have a question regarding Grand Parents Rights in Indiana. To give a lil summary of what is going on. We have researched the law and would like some afvice. Three years ago my husbands daughter got divorced from her husband at the time our grand child was 3 she is not six ( This is not my daughter she is a step child) Carole lost custody of the child because of circumstance where she was unable to care for the child and was living with an abuser. So our son in law got custody, since then carole has not spoke with us. We speak to John the ex husband and has great relation ship with him. We were recently planning a Disney trip with the child and John but he was threatened by Carole with legal action against him is he lets the child travel ( we live in TX) I reached out to Carole and asked maybe the child can come see us during the summer then. Carole stated that " we are nothing to her and will be to the child and again was threaten legal action against us if we try to contact the child again There is a lot more to this story but would want to find out what is our next move as a grand parent she lives in Indiana and we live in TX

My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for 8 years.
My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for 8 years. We live together and have 3 year old twins together. When we argue he says he's going to take the kids and says cruel things that do not make sense. He says he loves our children but I know what is happening is not right because he is willing to have the children experience pain and fear to try to hurt me. He does not hurt me physically but he is mentally abusive and controlling. Realizing may have no choice but to separate to protect my children and myself. If I have the kids with me this evening and want to stay overnight at my Mother's house with them would I be able to do that? Usually I would be able to no problem, but I do not trust his intentions at this time. If I have the kids with me at my Mother's house because I do not feel safe and leave the home we share with our kids, how do I protect myself and keep custody? I would be going temporarily to my mothers who lives within 5 miles.

We had a hearing today in Missouri in a custody case. The parents of the 2-year-old child have never been married. The child has been living with the father for the last 15 months. The father brought the case looking for joint physical custody and sole legal custody. The hearing today was a Temporary Custody hearing. There was much arguing in front of the judge by the attorneys, then closed door discussion with the attorneys and the judge, and then the mother and father and their lawyers were required to go into a room and try to come up with a temporary agreement. My son is the father and I have been very involved and supportive of him through this case, but I was not allowed to be in the room. The Respondent's lawyer was very aggressive; his lawyer was not. In the end, he said ok to what they came up with, but he actually is not in agreement, and some of what was decided regarding transportation of the child may not actually be possible to meet. After the discussion, they went back into the courtroom and his lawyer told the judge what they agreed to. It was entered into the computer, and his lawyer was tasked with writing it up and getting it signed. My son does not want to sign it. Does he have to? What happens if he doesn't?

I have received full custody of my nephew (both parents were found to be unfit due to abuse, drugs and crime). What will happen to my nephew if something happens to me? Do I decide in my will who he goes to or will he go back into the "system"?
I am per pro and preparing a final settlement on our divorce
hello,I am per pro and preparing a final settlement on our divorce case in CA. Date of separation 7/2014. a domestic violence restraining order was issued, in protection of myself and my now 10 yr old daughter, from my ex spouse.we have progressed, from no visitation, to an unsupervised visitation schedule btw daughter and Dad. Also, in criminal court, former spouse, took a plea of guilty , to vandalism of personal property. Spousal abuse and child endangerment charges were dropped in the criminal court, as part of plea deal . I also have criminal protective order until May 2018 due to this plea.exspouse wants joint legal custody as part of final divorce decree. I do not want joint legal with him. does anyone know, if CA family law code, restricts joint legal or physical custody, when there is criminal protective order in place? the criminal protective order protects me, only, not the child. The DVRO protects both me and the child. But Dad does have some visitation. thanks for your help!
