This is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply. In most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the ability to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork. A minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support. If the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home. If you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place.

If mother and daughter have a joint account together and mother dies the daughter can continue to use the account or close it and reopen it in her own name.

What rights do you have as a father if i just found out you had a daughter from a one night stand?

If your son gives up his right to his 2 year old daughter he never gets to see her because the mother of his daughter does not approve of his wife. Is he still responsible for her support?

Your son is entitled to have visitation with his daughter. It sounds as though he and the child's mother are not married and he has allowed her to have too much control. Only a court can determine that he cannot visit with his daughter. He needs to establish paternity by a court order. The court will establish a visitation schedule and child support order. There may be no need to 'fight'. If he has a court ordered visitation schedule the child's mother could not prevent the visitations because she doesn't like the father's wife. Your son cannot free himself of child support obligations unless his daughter is legally adopted by another person who will be obligated to support her. Adults cannot walk away from child support obligations that easily.

Your mother was on title to a house with your daughter. Mother signed a quit claim to you. If your mother passes away can the property be tied up in her probate?

According to your question, your mother and your daughter owned property together. That deed should be recorded in the land records. If they owned as joint tenants with the right of survivorship, when your mother dies her interest in the property would pass automatically to your daughter and bypass probate. If your mother signed a quitclaim deed that conveyed her interest to you, that deed must be recorded in the land records. By executing that deed, she broke the joint tenancy she had with your daughter and now you and your daughter own the property as tenants in common. Your mother no longer owns the property and it would not be included in her probate estate.

If the mother has the custody and father has visitation rights does the mother have the right to deny father to call her daughter at appropriate time?

If you are a good mother I wouldn't DENY the father anything. I think you should set time limits as in do not call after8:30pm on school nights and 10-11pm on the weekends. I don't think it is fair to the child to deny the father the right to speak to his daughter. It will only hurt her in the end.

I'm not an attorney, and you certainly need the help of an attorney. But joint tenants have equal and undivided rights in the property they own. It doesn't seem unreasonable that creditors will want something from the mother's property.
