Wife had TRO issued against me. What should I bring to hearing to defend?
Wife spending took us from no debt to $1200+ on credit card in 2 wks. Spent $500 in cash from joint acct. No receipts. Repeated habit. Loud discussion ensued. (I didn’t shout or insult) so I went into purse & took away checkbook & ATM card to our joint/family account. Online, I changed acct access passwords protecting funds needed for household expenses (mortgage, utils, food, gasoline, insurance). Wife very angry at my actions stormed out taking our teen daughter to inlaw’s 1 hr away & Ignored my cell calls so I texted, forced to escalate. No reply! Wife filed TRO on msg excerpt w/out context alleging fear of my actions. No abuse or violence in my history (20+ years marriage). How do I defend myself in court against bogus allegations. Money tight. Divorce imminent.
Text msgs all based on finances and concern for daughter. I love & miss daughter. Wife saw daughter’s college fund and decided it was ok to use for discretionary funds. I’m fed up w/ wife’s return to irresponsible spending binges.
At what age does a child not have to visit their non-custodial parent?
We live in Cherokee County, GA. My son is 16 yrs old. He does not want to visit his father because of the emotional abuse. He is constantly being negative toward my son. His step-mother is always criticizing my son because his clothes. His clothes are appropriate for his age.
His father pays weekly child support. He doesn’t buy my son clothes or pays for any school related expenses.
My son’s disposition changes when he speaks to his father. He goes from happy to depressed everytime he has contact with his dad.
Can I move out of state with my child if the father has visitation rights and pays child support?
I live in Ohio and have a child support and visitation agreement with the father. I also have a daughter with a different dad but he is not in the picture, but we are all moving to Jacksonville, NC, to live on the military base with my fiance. What do I need to do for this to happen if anything?? I am the custodial parent and both kids live with me.
