Can you guide us in the right direction?JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: United states citizen....the father is not legal. He said he came back on a work visa. I might add, when he left for 7 months, he only tried contacting around 3 -4 times and that was "how is _____?" response was fine, he never asked to speak to the child or anythingJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: as in court system? He now has an attorney going for 3 times a week visitationJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He has threatened in the past that he could "take the baby and go fast" I consider this a very serious threat

My question is about custody. about 2 yrs ago my husband and

my question is about custody. about 2 yrs ago my husband and I separated because he had an addiction. I had to take him to court for custody and i was granted sole legal and physical custody of our now 4yr daughter and he received supervised visitation.about a year ago we decided to work things out and moved back in together (around Nov. 2015).Recently, things have not been working out and he has become verbal abusive. During this time frame he also has neglected our daughter by refusing to put her in a carseat or seatbelt while driving his truck (he did this on several occasions), he also would take her on our neighbors pond without a life jacket despite the neighbors request that he do so. He was also drinking and driving on the way home from work (not with daughter in car) and didn't care. lastly, he left her at the barber shop one day with strangers in the shop so he could run to a nearby food lion for a few minutes.then most recently, about 4 weeks ago he got so angry at me that he physically assaulted me leaving a laceration on my arm. After that incident, i left the house and went to my parents and have been there ever since. In the past 4 weeks he has asked to see our daughter and i agreed with supervision only. He refused and still has not seen her but continues to ask for time alone with her. I respond every time with supervision only. i also got a protective order against him in the meantime.so my question is, first, is my original court order still valid since we lived together? and will the courts keep my order status quo because of the abuse, and child endangerment? i am very concerned about his angry and i don't want him to harm our daughter or put her in harms way.

My son is planning to marry a female from Ecuador in the

My son is planning to marry a female from Ecuador in the next four months. She is coming here on a fiance (K-1) visa in the middle of October. He presently own a house, a business and will inherit the building (from parents) his business is housed in before his fiance arrives in middle of October. Exactly what is she entitled to if my son does marry her within the ninety day time frame, which would be by the middle of January 2017??? Is a prenuptial agreement in order at this time? You always hope for the best outcome, but if a year from their marriage it does not turn out well and they divorce I don't believe she is entitled to half of his possessions. We live in New Jersey and NJ has alimony laws, so I am gessing she would be entitled to alimony? Also, if they were to have children, I believe that child at birth becomes an American citizen, so legally she would not be able to take that child back to Ecuador if she chose to return to her native country.

My son's biological father has been arrested twice for

My son's biological father has been arrested twice for assault and has a history of violence. He has also been in jail on criminal charges 4 times this year. Upon his most recent arrest for indecent exposure, malicious mischief and vandalism, he decided to draw up a parenting plan to demand increased visitation with our four year old who is also going to treatment for trauma due to the assault that occurred from 2012-2013. There has never been a parenting plan as we were never married and split while I was pregnant. I have letters from the mother of the "father" aka grandmother stating herself, that she would not want the father alone with my son "her grandson" nor does he need to see him that often. What should I expect from the summons for increased visitation and his request for the courts to enter his parenting plan? Thanks!!

My Ex moved to Texas from California and took my daughter

My Ex moved to Texas from California and took my daughter without telling me. I went to court and got an emergency court order which gave me temporary physical custody, care, and control of my daughter. I have full custody and the mother has supervised visitation.She has not exercised the visitation, I'm assuming she is still living in Texas. My daughter has started 1st grade and by the time we go to medication on 9/19/16 she would have been in school almost one month. From your experience will the mediator still recommend supervised visitation due to the fact she is a flight risk and has already taken her once? Will the mediator take her out of her current school? My ex moved to Texas however she has no job and is staying with friends. What can I do to better my chances of my daughter remaining in California?
