Can someone who is placed on house arrest allowed to visit their children if they live somewhere else in the same town?

Q: The father of my children was arrested yesterday by the Feds and I was told he will be placed on house arrest at an individuals house that I have a conflict with.

When can my child refuse visitation with non custodial Parent

Q: My Son is 12. He's been in therapy for a few years in regard to a bad relationship with his Father & Father's live in Paramour. As he's gotten older his relationship with both the Dad and GF has deteriorated. He no longer feels comfortable being in their company and has NO relationship with his Dad. MY Ex is always threatening me with Court (we've been there a handful) and faults me for his sour relationship with our Son. Therapist has said it's in the best interest of my Son not to be with his Dad based on bad experiences and that my Son can refuse to go. Attorney says, therapist doesn't know legalities. Not easy being a Mom sandwiched in between. I've sent/forced my Son every time he's was scheduled to see his Dad, even the weekends. the situation has gotten progressively worse. HELP!

Can I get a court order regarding need to work with a parent coordinator enforced without going back to court?

Q: My ex husband and I have been ordered by the court to work with a Parent Coordinator. After a few months my ex husband stopped coming to the sessions although our last stipulation clearly indicates that we should work with a Parent Coordinator and should not go back to court without prior consultation with the Parent Coordinator except for major emergencies. How can i get my ex husband back to PC without spending thousands of money in court again?

How can I get my post divorce stipulation enforced?

Q: I got divorced 3 years ago. The procedure was quick and amicable. However shortly after my ex started to misbehave and we had to go back to court several times. We signed last year a petition in order to tighten our agreement (mainly around access time for our daughter). However he keeps breaching it. Small breaches (he is late to drop off our daughter, says bad things to her about me...). Each incident alone does not seem severe enough for me to go back to court but the accumulation makes it very annoying. What can I do? He makes much less than me so I'm afraid I may not get any legal fee reimbursed if I go back to court and at this point I'd rather save for college for my daughter than paying more legal fees....

Is this considered Kidnapping?

Q: My daughters mother has full sole custody, but in our custody agreement she is prohibited from leaving/ moving with my child without my consent, my daughter is 10 years old and is telling me she no longer lives in the home (NY)where she used to live in and now lives in( NJ), The mother will not disclose the address and continues to lie to everyone about where my daughter is living. Would this be considered kidnapping?

What do I do ?

Q: I am a girl who married a girl while I was pregnant. She signed the birth certificate. The father was abusive towards me. I'm petrified of him and what he is capable of. He has tried to get me to come to court but I was never properly served so I never went and both his cases got dismissed. He hasn't filed in over a year now. The child is 3 now. We moved to ny my wife and I are separated and I filed papers for custody she isn't showing up to any of the court hearing and the court ordered my son a lawyer. Is the bio father going to find out about this? Do I need to tell the court about him? There is no dna test. I'm so scared he will find us. Should I just drop this whole case all togeather? What do I do? Please help!

I need advise and help?

Q: Basically my story is this... I am 31 years old with a severely disabled daughter, I lived in Florida but left for better doctors in NY, my mother took my daughter from we're she was and filed for temporary custody of my youngest child then went after me for child support, I have been in and out of jobs and owe over 9,000 in child support. I am looking to get my daughter back due to unlivable conditions of my parents house, I was wondering how I could go about that from NY to Florida and if there is any help that can b provided. Thank you very much.
If it helps I did send packages to my daughter and speak to her everyday. I just wAnt my daughter back and have been trying since a year after I brought my 2end oldest to NY. But I don't know how with this Temporary custody agreement, as well as my father sexually Abused both me and my sister, I just need help getting her away from there.
