How can we help?Customer: I have a question, due to some money troubles my ex fiancé had last september before we became engaged I agreed to let him and his 4 kids move into my family home.

Things have drastically change to the point that I have video proof of him taking my bedroom furniture apart and leaving it in the living room for me to find, he's threaten to change the locks and kick me out on the street I'm not sure what steps I can take to get him out of the houseJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: I live in New York CityJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no I haven'tJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: aside from the verbal abuse I receive when he drinks, I don't think so.

I am looking, help, answers, etc. Brother who is going to be

I am looking for advice, help, answers, etc. for my Brother who is going to be starting what we are anticipating to be a pretty long, drawn out and very very hard child custody battle with the Mother of his 9 year old Son. She filed with the court for 100% physical placement with the condition that my Brother only be allowed to see his son when she is available and it is supervised by herself or a police officer. My Brother has been in his son's life completely and in every possible way a father/dad should, for the whole 9 years of his life. Now she is demanding these things. Our question though, is what does he do first and foremost? Is what she is requesting even possible? We live in Wisconsin. I probable sound like I'm rambling, but there's just so so many questions and confusion, that we really don't know where to start. Any advice is very much appreciated and we thank you in advance for taking the time.

I live in Maryland and I told my husband I no longer want to be married. I am unemployed and he has informed me that he doesn't have money to pay for two mortgages. We have three children and he is a commander in the Us Coast Guard. According to Maryland law, we have to be physically living apart (separated) for one year in order to divorce. How can I get him to leave the home (it is in both of our names)?

I recently had a hearing to suspend parenting time son from

I recently had a hearing to suspend parenting time for my son from his father. He is scared of him, has come home with bruises which CPS has refused to investigate because they cannot take the word of a child. The father has expressed his wish to sign off as long as I am willing to drop child support. At the hearing both the father and his current girlfriend testified that my son is disengaged when visiting, sleeps most of the time,and refuses to eat. The father has never been actively involved in this child's life. He hasn't exercised his court ordered visitation in 7 weeks. Which equals out to 4 missed visits. I have only verbally denied one visit 7 weeks ago. I however did offer to meet him in a public place. He refused. He has not asked for make up time verbally or in written form. He currently has a bench warrant out for back child support. I do not force the child support because he becomes verbally abusive towards me whenever the subject is brought up. Today I received a response from the court stating my motion to suspend parenting time has been denied. I know I have the right to object, but I am unsure how to proceed.

I am getting my evidence together temp hearing on the motion

Hi, I am getting my evidence together for my temp hearing on the motion to modify. I have a question, I have printed up text conversations between me and the ex where he repeatedly threatens to take me to court whenever I did not do what he wanted. I understand I have to bring my phone as well and opposing counsel my object to them, but lets assume the judge allows it. Can I put arrow post its next to the main point of the text as in there is arguing going on about different stuff back in forth, in the end of each he threatens court if I don't agree. SO I am trying to find away to submit the text without making the judge read all the bickering, but I know I have to submit them in context or I guess the complete conversation. OR can I just pick the multiple threats over and over and submit that this is par for the course read the threats or have him do so, and then tell the judge I have the complete conversations if he needs to see it as a whole..

A friend of mine had not to long ago learned that the man that she has been "married to" for the past 17 years in Wisconsin was in fact married to another women in Las Vegas 7 years prior to find my Friend in Wisconsin. He did not divorce this women that he married in Las Vegas, he just simple left her. My Friend learned this when the other woman(who lives in California) defaulted on a car loan and had fraudulently forged his name on the loan papers. The collection company contacted my friend trying to talk to her "HUSBAND." My friend now needs to know how to proceed. Their relationship has been on the rock for many years do to his mental health. She has both Medical & financial POA over him which complicates things. Any idea for her, I really want to help her.

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.
