    Question about Statue of limitation - Tennessee law

    And vandalism. I’ve seen numerous terns charged with vandalism because they rolled a teacher’s yard. Add pesky glitter to it, I guarantee these kids will be charged. Albeit, their only punishment likely to be community service but there will be expensive court costs that have to be paid. OP...

    What do I do?

    Contact the law school at University of Memphis to inquire about legal clinics they offer. It is there you can get advice at no cost or extremely low cost by law students who are supervised by licensed attorneys. What has to be filed is a Show Cause. She will be summonsed to appear and...

    Grandmother has custody and now I don't like it..

    It used to be a common thing around these parts. Fortunately, someone with good sense finally created a bill (which passed) that, at least in Tennessee, anyone under the age of 18 cannot get married without a judge's approval; a parent's signature is no longer acceptable. And while some...

    What can i legally do?

    He is right. Without a parenting plan/court order saying otherwise, he has the right to have your mutual child around anyone at any place he wishes - within reason of course (I.e., a bar or strip club is a huge no no) An attempted theft charge will not be enough to restrict the females presence...

    Husband Cheated and his Ex is Harassing Me

    You are angry at the wrong person and your actions enable your abusive husband. I recommend you retain an attorney AND a therapist to get rid of him and work through the underlying issues which cause you to tolerate and enable such atrocious behaviors.

    Dad sets my car on fire because I won't apologize.

    Call the police. That is your only option. If the DA believes there is enough evidence, your father will be charged criminally. Being as the car is insured (even if it's paid by them because the car is titled to you, you are also on the policy), file a claim with the agency and get your car...

    Can I obtain a restraining order even though the abuse happened over 6 months ago?

    It's possible but not probable. This isn't legal advice but life advice: I would recommend cutting all contact with him as he is clearly someone with personality disorder issues. If you can't seem to do that, I would strongly advise seeking out a therapist who can help you understand why and...

    Child Support When Ex is Fired

    It's already at zero, so technically nothing would change. However, as TN's CS is based on both parents income, her loss of income could be a game changer because she's technically contributing nothing to the children's support now but being as she was fired for cause, her income would be...

    How to get full custody when the other parent is MIA and not on the birth certificate

    While I certainly understand your attorney's point of view and he isn't entirely wrong, there are other ways to go forward with an adoption when the parent whose rights are to be terminated cannot be found. The TN attorney with whom I spent most of my working career would have strongly...

    Oh, I thought I'd read they had divorced. Oh well, still applies I suppose. And thank you.

    Why are you so insistent on an alcoholic, wife-beater exercising his visitation? From the way you describe him, he'd be a horrible influence on your mutual child and his lack of exercising visitation would be a blessing in disguise. I can answer that. It's because, whether you want to admit...

    My first child was born 6/30 and I dont want my mother anywhere near him.

    OP, I get it. I had a mother like yours. I was also diagnosed with depression, complex PTSD, etc. The only thing that's going to rid you of your ailments is moving away from your mother. While it's hard to do when you're emotionally beaten down, getting a job and a place of your own will be...

    Motion for default

    It means you get everything you asked for in the prayer of your Complaint for Divorce. No trial, no mediation. However, don't be surprised if he shows up to Court the day the default motion is heard; it's a common occurrence. Should that happen, the judge typically grants a continuance of...

    PA CYF made us agree to 30 day safety plan - my baby has to stay at parents - caseworker wont return calls!! plz help!

    That is exactly what is happening. The Court is going to deem your actions as choosing your husband. Please attend meeting as Al-Anon. You will meet many who will understand but will also gently guide you to understanding the flaw in your logic. Your fiance's alcoholism and your enabling...

    I AM their mother.

    Why is relocating to Tennessee impractical? You don't have to live in the same community, or even town/city, but you would be significantly closer to your children, which would allow you to re-establish yourself in their lives and have the possibility of a 50/50 schedule in the future. Right...
