Q: 

Brother set on causing problems-what a mess

A:  Waaay too much info and editorializing there my friend. We only need the basic facts. If you can't convince your mother that her son is a manipulative brat, I'm not sure what to tell you. You are free to tell her that you don't want to hear about any of his nonsense/antics. Given that her living space is part of your home, you are also free to tell him that he is not welcome on your property (if that's ever an issue). You might also want to talk with a local attorney about a defamation suit vis-a-vis the social services complaint. "Also, I wonder if anyone can tell me, since his new tact seems to be to try to get control of my house ... can he somehow take control of her or my home??" [Edited for length] He's free to apply for guardianship over her person...

Q: 

have a question?.... New York

A:  is there a legal question in there somewhere? Well, what you can do is report your child as unruly or incorrigible. You could have also pulled her butt out of that school, home schooled her or sent her to reform or military school. If it comes down to it, you ground her to her room (no phone, no tv, no computer...give her books (at this point, childcare books would be good) until she figures out that you are in charge. This girl is in a world of hurt, and it is only going to get worse. As difficult as it is, I suggest you and she look into giving the children in adoption. She is in no way prepared to care for the first, much less two. My suggestion to you is that you make life as she knows it disappear. All she...

Q: 

engagement ring re divorce

A:  What a chancer! Your engagement ring is nothing to do with him! Try not to meet him head on.....negotiate by offering to give him back the ring he gave you instead ....that''s reasonable. My thinking is that something so personal that was gifted after Separation should have nothing to do with the Settlement. Sorry - never thought I''d say this ..screw him, if you can - he deserves it!!!!!!!!1 he is playing so dirty... he gave away a ?4k to his brother and he has hid ?15k he got in a lone just b4 i left he has also cashed in his pension.and all im fighting for is ?5k which would be my part of the house. house is worth ?110k morgage is ?99k . but he is trying to get everything out of me even trying me to pay for the full divorce.... i feel so...

Q: 

Legal action before Divorce

A:  It is terrible that she would not allow him to his own child's b-day party. No, she does not have all the control. He has every right to see the children. He certainly does not have to listen to her, he also did not have to leave the marital home. Personally I would move back in since she refuses to let him see the children. He does not have to listen to her. He should see an attorney and file for divorce and put in an immed. custody/visitation order. It is in his best interest to stop listening to her, and to see an attorney. Also..mom has no rights to keep the kids from their dad and to put them with mom There are no court papers telling anyone to do anything. Since there is no...

Q: 

custody change in PA? Pennsylvania

A:  Kids need there parents equally no matter how old they are. Unless of course you are breastfeeding. Breast feeding is not an adequate excuse to limit visiation with the other parent. I only meant that it could cause scheduling difficulties if a mother is breastfeeding. I think you may have took it the wrong way. Sorry if I wasn''t clear. Breast milk can be pumped, frozen and stored for up to 3 months. If a baby is being breast fed that should not stop a father from his visitation rights. Believe me I work in a children''s hospital and most of our babies esp ones from multiple births are left alone in the hospital with a supply of breast milk. Your ex cannot take you off his health insurance unless the company allows...

Q: 

Not sure if HERE is the correct board for this question..

A:  You'd have to be appointed her temporary conservator, and that requires petitioning a court and demonstrating that she's legally incompetent. ... or, if she is not, she can give you power of attorney (preferably durable). "She probably has to be proven unstable in order for me to gain control." Not just unstable, but legally incompetent. You can talk with a local family law attorney. You would likely need to have a court declare her incompetent and make you her guardian. "...does that mean that person then is responsilble for all the debts and financial problems of the other person?" Responsible in that if the guardian-POA messes up, they can be held responsible to some extent. But personally liable off the bat? No. Note that...

Q: 

Assualt, Mischief, and unlawful confidment

A:  Don''t lose sight of the fact that you are the VICTIM in this case, not the accused. It should be him that should be making things right. By this I mean that he should be preparing himself for trial and a future with you by attending anger management counselling sessions and counselling for alcohol abuse. With a letter from each of these two counsellors, his lawyer will have more ammunition to present to the Judge showing his willingness to change and that there may be, in fact a safe future for the two of you. The unlawful confinement charge is very disturbing and shows the escalation of the potential for violence and what lengths he would go to get at you. I suggest that you proceed with the trial as (and don''t forget, he is not guilty...

Q: 

fired, but What did I DO? Need apeal advice--Q

A:  You are not going to like this answer too much, but here it goes: Your employer is entitled to hire/fire anyone at will. They don''t need a reason to do so. Your record of not getting along with other coworkers doesn''t help either. How do you prepare for this appeal? I find hard to believe that there will be a member of the appeal board that will find your dismissal unjust. So, the bottom line here is for you to move on and find yourself a job where the work environment is more conducive to your work style. Good luck to you! Who are you appealing to? Does your employer even offer an appeal process for terminated workers? it''s so sad that these girls all under the age of 30, including the supervisor can dictate and run this department. All the ladies that I get along with tremendously are...

Q: 

do we have a case? rsd?

A:  I am sorry for your daughter's medical problems. No one on a board can possibly state whether malpractice might have occurred. Infection is a risk of any hospital procedure, unfortunately. Just being in a hospital exposes one to staph. If the doctor(s) failed to recognize and properly treat a staph infection, there might be basis to litigate. I suggest you consult a medical malpractice attorney in your state who will arrange to have all of your daughter's medical records reviewed by an expert. I do hope in time she recovers....

Q: 

Father working for Cash

A:  >>> The courts in Michigan have ordered him to pay support for his daughter.<<< When?  Over three years?  If yes, we will give you our answer.   It doesn't matter what he is working for;  if there is a court order against him and he is not paying, she needs to file for contempt and have it heard before a judge. Why has she sat on her duff for 10 years---? Unwise! In a sense you don't let courts know--they don't act by themselves-you petition them to act -you seek a contempt citation--with prospect that he get a visit to cooler. I'm not up on mechanics.. Odds are Dad is in violation of both Federal and MI income tax laws--so turn him in! You need to be careful about making a threat to induce him to pay...
