Q: 

How do I get temporary custody of my grandchildren while their parents are incarcerated?

A:  You can make a private agreement with the child''s parents to provide care for the child, such as a Power of Attorney for child Care and custody. A power of attorney can be made showing that you have ''custody'' of the child with the parents'' consent. Such a document is used when the custody is only for a temporary period of time. Normally it is also beneficial to secure a medical release for emergencies, especially if a parent is not readily available. The parents may revoke this type of agreement at any time. The California Family Code also...

Q: 

parent with physical custody moving away--Q

A:  Yep. Your state still has jurisdiction, also you can fight this move. Do not assume he is allowed to move. I highly suggest you at least get a consultation with an attorney. Why is he moving? You need to take dad back to court and get him to pay for all transportation costs to visit, plus the visitation schedule needs to be changed to accomodate long distance. Also you can file for custody of the kids. With no court order, this eventually needs to go to court to get finalized, especially if he moves. Originally Posted by mamamaureen I apologize if this appears disorganized, but I am under significant stress right now. My ex is moving across the country due to a job transfer. He has physical custody, not court ordered,...

Q: 

who should pay if the countertop broke during installation

A:  "... where the contractor placed some rods that would allegedly reinforce the stone (for which they charged us additionally)." Never heard of that before. Have you asked other granite install professionals about this? "The problem is that I helped two contractor guys to hold the piece while they were manouvering it to fit into place, and they claim now that it was all my fault." Riiight. They'll have to prove that. "can they blame me for breaking the piece (if I was just holding it with two contractor's employees)?" They *can* (and have), but that doesn't mean you can't sue them for a new piece of granite (or repair to existing top). where the contractor placed some rods that would allegedly reinforce the stone (for which they charged us...

If a DNA test proves you not to be the child''s father, that is but part of your puzzle. You''ll then be forced to go to court to stop the payments in many states. If the payments are by way of administrative fiat, you might be able to get them stopped by the agency that takes your money. You need an attorney.

Q: 

Father disappeared five years ago - can I get custody? North Carolina

A:  You will have to obtain the services of a lawyer. You will file for abandonment of the child and adjust the visitation order accordingly. A father cannot have his rights removed from a child unless there is someone else willing to pick those rights up. A child must always have two parents if at all possible (save for a death, for instance). However, it does not free the dad from his financial obligations to the child... and I would recommend highly that you pursue them. Wait, you said remarry. You said you weren''t married to the father. Were you married at the time of birth? I am not asking...
