      My brother, has been using meth, stealing, having weapons, and etc for many years. Recently, he stole a car, and cops caught him. We had to go get him, because he was a minor (17, until november and he is 18). Well, they caught him breaking into a house, and possesion of meth, as well as weapons. They put him in jail, but we had to get him. What I am wondering is, is there anyway to get him out of the house, since he is violent, and will retaliate if we send him to jail, and we get him. Is there anything we can do, since we are afraid of him
      I have a daughter with someone. At the time we were and are not married. We split up after 8 years. Our daughter lives with me 24/7. He does not give me support. He is listed on her birth certificate. I want nothing from him that is why I have never filed offical court papers establishing paternity, support or visitation. I need to know what his rights are in regards to her. Can I keep her from him legally because we receive nothing from him? Can he come over and just try to take her by force with police involvement?
