My mother's increasing dementia and lack of mobility has

Hello. My mother's increasing dementia and lack of mobility has made her a danger to herself and others in a home where she exists as an extreme hoarder. The danger of getting out of the house in case of fire is great. Stairs are almost impossible to manage. Her bedroom is piled so high she an not sleep in her bed; her bed is completely covered. She is currently enroute to The Masonic Home in Alma, MI, discharged from Beaumont Hospital. She has been caring for a legallly disabled daughter in the home, with severe mental problems, obesity, on oxygen, unable to step very far safely, or cook for herself. The daughter is now threatening - I believe - my mother that she must not stay in Alma, but only submit to therapy, then leave to return and take care of her. My sister shouldn't be in that house even now, and my mother couldn't take care of her. It is possible that Alma could be a place for both my mother and my sister, but the sister now refuses to consider going which seems to have swayed my mother's resolve to retire there. Hospitals have said they will send an inspector to see the home, but none has arrived. The home health care workers from Beaumont should never have allowed this to happen, but they are getting paid, are they not, so I believe they have neglected their duty, another subject perhaps. How to save both my mother and my sister? My sister would never go anywhere willingly. But evenutally would expire. My mother will certainly die if she returns home.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. My mother's complete lack of mobility and falling has only happened in the last two weeks.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Oh my, I don't think so...

I am having a court date tomorrow in divorce court in King's

Hi, I am having a court date tomorrow in divorce court in King's County NY Supreme court specifically to decide between joint custody and joint custody with final decision making to myself. I have been the sole parent for 10 years and my child's father is a good father though it would be extraordinary if he was involved in any decisions. He never has been and in the last 2 years has only seen her 8 times briefly. The judge threatened to hire a lawyer to represent my child at a high cost-I am representing myself for financial reasons. I wondered if there might be case law or if I should prepare a document or facts to represent these issues to the court.

I spoke with you last week about filing a motion for

Hi, I spoke with you last week about filing a motion for temporary child support. I will go to the supreme court today to fill that out and hopefully file it. I have a preliminary conference today, this will be our 3rd, and I am self represented. I am in agreement on most issues of custody and visitation though relocation is not resolved. I am the sole provider for 4 kids, the issue of child support has yet to come up and its been almost one year since I filed for divorce. The lawyers fees have left me financially uncertain. My 4 kids are all out of NYC where the divorce is filed-3 in college, one in away high school. I work out of this area-higher pay. Forcing me to not relocate is difficult in that I cannot earn the money needed to provide for my kids and my spouse does not participate in care of the youngest and cannot house any of the kids. Can I bring this up today?

Ex has been threatening to take me to court for over three

For LucyMy ex has been threatening to take me to court for over three years. He would demand the bills and record of payments and tell me if he didn't get the or if I didn't pay him he was taking me to court. Each time I gave him the bills. He went away and would come back several months later and do the same thing. Each time I gave him the records and occasionally he said the were not in a manner that was acceptable. I derived the following questions for discovery. Is there a legal reason my attorney would not ask them?How many times have you asked Melissa for the record of bills which she claimed you owed?Over what period of time were these requests?How many times did you tell Melissa if she did not immediately provide such that you were going to take her to court on contempt?Why each time you threatened did you not act on these threats?

I am representing myself in a custody matter. We have a joint custody order - and the other party's attorney is sending me letter after letter threatening to take me to court for issues the other party has brought forth that are not accurate. (ie - stating that I am not communicating about medical issues of the child if she had a fever and was given ibuprofen) What is the best way to handle this?
