    Need advice ASAP

    None of us has a crystal ball to know the outcome of your court hearing. Yes, I assume the argument you had with your boyfriend was verbal as opposed to a nonverbal argument. The fact that someone called the police would indicate that things were getting out of hand. There is much more to this story than you are telling. An agency looking out for your children's welfare would hardly stay involved for 8 months because of a minor disagreement you and your boyfriend had. Your children deserve to live in a clean, stable, and secure environment. If you and your boyfriend cannot conduct yourselves in mature and healthy ways, you need to break it off with him. Move in with relatives if you must, but don't endanger your children's lives by continuing to have a relationship--much less a live-in relationship--with someone who brings out the worst in you. Don't blame the 18 year old babysitter for letting social workers into your home. He could hardly have refused. You sound like you have your hands full with work and two small children, but even a 4 year old can be taught to help put her toys away each night.

    Advice anyone

    Most courts will have more than one judge presiding over matters filed in that courtroom. When one files a case, the court assigns it to one of its judges randomly. A judge may recuse himself/herself from a case to which he/she has been assigned when he/she feels that he/she is not qualified to serve as the presiding judge due to any number of reasons, including a lack of partiality or a possible conflict of interest.

    Mail correctly yet incorrectly addressed?

    pg1067, are they not “retarding the passage” of the mail by holding onto it?

    Mail correctly yet incorrectly addressed?

    Do you really need someone to tell you that the second package belongs to someone in Florida? If a cashier mistakenly gives you change for a $20 bill when you gave her a $10 bill, do you think it is right to keep it? Possibly the company who shipped your father the headphones would not be able to trace the extra set of headphones to him, but they would have to absorb the cost of another set plus the shipping costs to satisfy the paying customer in Florida. Eventually costs like that are passed on to their customers in the form of higher prices and higher shipping costs. Yes, your father is responsible for righting a wrong. That is the morally correct thing to do. If you want to research laws along this line, look up “unjust enrichment.”
  6. You will have to hire another attorney to help you with this—there doesn’t seem to be any way around that. As one of the beneficiaries of your father’s estate, you should have been informed of the value of the assets of the estate at the time of his death. the proposed disposition of any assets as well as accountings of all income received from the sale of assets and any expenses incurred. When you brought your cousin’s actions to the attention of your attorney, what was his or her response? Is your mother living? If your father’s will was filed for probate, it should be a matter of public record. You can obtain a copy of the will and the complete court file for the priice of photocopying the documents. If you wish to file a grievance against the Texas attorney, you may find this information helpful: Filing a grievance against a Texas lawyer
  7. In what state did your parents reside? In what state do you reside? Was an estate opened? Who was named as personal representative of the estate? I'm not familiar with creating a trust for an estate. It is more common for an estate checking account to be opened (in the name of the estate) to pay bills incurred by the estate. In my state, probate court handles decedent estates. The name of the court in your state may be different. If your parents had substantial assets, possibly the court would require that the personal representative put up a bond. You will need to retain an attorney to help you sort this out. It isn't clear to me what the current status of the estate is. If your brother died and your cousin reneged on everything, is the estate in limbo? I doubt that any ancient artifact would be labeled "B.C."

    Purchasing a home after Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

    You cannot be discharged in bankruptcy and not expect to be viewed by lenders with some caution. I highly doubt your credit scores are as high as you believe they are, and while you may be able to get a loan, you can expect to pay a much higher interest rate and have other contingencies that would not be required of an applicant with more stellar credit. You are kidding yourselves. Don’t forget to pay Grandma back.
  9. It looks like the Order appointing your mother as guardian of your son was entered in January of this year. This online community does not have the benefit of knowing the reasons your mother gave for requesting that she be appointed his guardian, and we do not know what she testified to at the hearing held on this matter. All anyone’s best advice would be for you to retain an attorney to petition the court to modify or terminate her guardianship. You would almost certainly have to give clear and convincing evidence that you are now a fit and responsible parent and able to care for your son. In future, don’t sign papers that you haven’t read. You are the parent of a young child; he and his care and welfare should occupy most of your time and energy. That won’t allow you much time—if any—for going out with friends, but your role as a parent is/should be more important anyway.

    Child asking for a change of custody

    Your son has lived with his father for five years, a good portion of his life, and you've been denied custody once already. Has there been a change in circumstances? Why exactly is your son miserable? It is a very sad situation for everyone, but why uproot him yet again? It may be that he has an unrealistic expectation of what life would be like with you and that he would be miserable with you once life became routine again. It is indeed sad that his parents live so far apart. I hope his father can get him some counseling so that he talk these things over with someone.

    Took my child

    A lot of women who experience domestic violence seek protective orders to keep (or attempt to keep) their abusers away. I don’t know why you chose to have a baby with someone you say has violent tendencies and a drinking problem, but your children deserve way better than that. There were and are many women’s shelters available to give you and all of your children refuge, but instead you abandoned your daughter with your abuser and did nothing. You ask what you could have done. It seems like a moot point at this stage, but if I’d gotten a two-hour advance warning that my boyfriend was leaving with my child, I would have called the police for assistance. You’ve told your story several times and in several ways but the answer remains the same: Get an attorney. The fact that you say the police and others tell you there is nothing to be done leads me to believe there is much more to this story.

    What are the steps to start a juicing business?

    The legal requirements vary from state to state and possibly from community to community. You'd be well served to meet with a business attorney who can go over the various types of business entities and advise you on what is best for you. The attorney could also advise you or research licensing requirements for your area.

    Took my child

    Your post is very difficult to read because it doesn't contain any punctuation (other than question marks) or breaks--it is one very long sentence. Was paternity established for your daughter? Was a custody/visitation order put in place? You should see an attorney about custody and visitation of your daughter. You may be able to get a free consultation or get help from a legal aid society.
