I file for temporary and permanent guardianship in 11/2015. My daughter verbally concent in court to the judge to leave my grandson with me in April 2016, while she seeked rehab for her meth condition. Judge denied temporary custody n gave me daughter 30 days to seek drug rehab.my daughter still running streets and unstable. In the mean i have no legal rights and i was told by a fren to call CPS n report both parents, so it would be on file n could expedite my case. Well, cps came i told them the honest truth about my battles with my daughter. They said they were going to try to find the parents to see if they would sign over my grandson to me. Later, that same day cps called n said they were coming to remove my grandson f t om my home bcz my boyfriend who lives with me and is also the biological grandfather has a criminal record. Bith he and I told them he would mive out but they said no.Since he did moved out as and cps is saying they want to help me get my grandson back but it could take up to 6 weeks. 6 weeks may not seem long but to me 6 wks to me is an eternity without my grandson at home. He us i nly 2.5 yrs old, has emotinal and abandonment issues. I want to know my rights as a grandparent, as well as if i can expedite the process. Thus is in southern California and by the way my daughter is willing to dign hom i ver to ne, in which she said she did inform the case worker but she was yold she called an hour to late as judge had already sign the warrant to remove her parentsl rights..just seems as though they acted quick to remive him when he has been taken care of by me and there are children who are neglected n abuse and still with parents. I just thought i was doing the right thing and wanted a report not have my grandson removed from his home. Please help.

My wife walked out 8 months ago and has only come to see our

Hi. My wife walked out 8 months ago and has only come to see our 3 kids every 3rd week or so for a few hours and sometimes a month or more goes by and no contact. We are filing divorce but in the meantime, yesterday she parked outside my residence, hiding in her car and when I pulled out she followed me and our 3 yr old son to the drs office. I did not know she was there. When I came out she did her very best to cause a domestic disturbance, screaming and all. She tried to take our son off in her car “without” a car seat and without even telling me where she was going. When she walked out 8 months ago, she went down state and has been there with her boyfriend, who is a felon, all this time. And her family. Continuing, I grabbed the keys out of the ignition and took my son out of the back seat of her car and took him home. She started screaming again and called the police trying to say I caused a problem and tried to get me arrested. The officer called me and I filled him in on the situation and he said he understood and everything was fine.I invite her to come up to see the kids all the time. She is 2 hours away. She rarely comes, once a month or so, and half the time does not show up when she says she will. She has tried to take the kids 3 to 4 times over the past month but NEVER like she did yesterday. She is out of control. She has a sealed record. Her brother, sister in law, boyfriend and niece are all felons. Her father texted me after the incident yesterday and cursed at me and told me he was going to deal with me. He is an ex-con and was in prison for a long time but has been out for quite a while. I am scared to say the least and do not want to live this way. They have no regard for the law and they are determined to lie about domestic violence and get me arrested.Can I get a temporary order for her to stay away until the divorce hearing is done, regarding visitation, since she is now doing these desperate attempts. She was reckless and hysterical. She is desperate because she walked out and has mad terrible choices and is not the same woman I married. Our children have been through enough and I also do not want them surrounded by felons, which includes drugs and domestic violence in their dockets. I want to get through this in one piece. How can I stop her, and protect my kids. I do not want to live like this while we wait for our hearing in a couple of months. HELP. I am so nervous and concerned about what they will try next.I want our kids to see their mother, but NOT like this and NOT with felons. How can I make sure she does not put our kids around criminals once this is settled and even now? And how can I prevent her anther family, from trying to cause domestic disturbances. Temporary order of protection until custody is settled? HOW? Our kids have finally gotten back some of the self worth after she walked out but are still fragile and healing. They, or I, deserve to live like this. Thank you

My daughter who lives in Pa. with her 11 yr old has been

My daughter who lives in Pa. with her 11 yr old has been diagnosed recently as Bipolar. She has missed a lot of work and been hospitalized a couple times. She has been living with her boyfriend. She has barely any money coming in and might lose her job. She wanted me Her mother in NY to keep her son while she got herself settled with Drs. and got financially back on track. Her ex who only started seeing her son on a semi-regular basis in the last year or so refuses to allow his son to stay with us, even though the boy has spent the last 5 summers with us without his objection. He wants her to give the boy to him. (dad had some anger issues that is why he has very limited custody to begin with) The boy dislikes his father and his new family and would visit them once a month until recently when they started pressuring him about coming to live with them. My question is is it possible for me his Grandmother to get at least temporary custody. He states he wants to stay with us and wants his mom to move and live here too. (a very real possibility.)JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: no

Georgia Law. What is the difference between registering and

Georgia Law. What is the difference between registering and domesticating a foreign order? This is in direct relation to child custody between states.I have an Verified Emergency Pick Up Order from the state of FL. I was advised by the Sheriff and Judge in GA to "domesticate" the order. Whats confusing is that the law forms available for pro se use the term "Domesticate" but follow the forum of "registering". What I have is a court ordered temporary custody order and both states have adopted the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgment Act and in conjunction with GA code Simply filing certified copies of the order makes it enforceable. I filed a complaint to "domesticate" using these forms here http://www.albany.ga.us/filestorage/1800/2889/3011/3518/Domesticate_Foreign_Judgment--family_law_dispute.pdfAm I entitled to having this immediately enforced or am i bound to registering my order which basically makes my emergency pick up order null and void since the court cannot see the case on the very next day after service but rather Sept 27, 2016?GA code regarding foreign judgement are as follows:GA Code § 9-12-131 (2015)As used in this article, the term "foreign judgment" means a judgment, decree, or order of a court of the United States or of any other court that is entitled to full faith and credit in this state.GA Code § 9-12-132 (2015)A copy of any foreign judgment authenticated in accordance with an act of Congress or statutes of this state may be filed in the office of the clerk of any court of competent jurisdiction of this state. The clerk shall treat the foreign judgment in the same manner as a judgment of the court in which the foreign judgment is filed. A filed foreign judgment has the same effect and is subject to the same procedures, defenses, and proceedings for reopening, vacating, staying, enforcing, or satisfying as a judgment of the court in which it is filed and may be enforced or satisfied in like manner.

My husband and I live in northern Louisiana. My stepson lives with his mother in one of the flooded area. Their house had significant flooding. They are currently floating between two different friend's homes in two different cities. They say the schools there will not open for months. This will mean he is held back for a year. Can we get a temporary custody order to have him come live with us, so that he can go to school.
