Q: my wife asked for a divorce. No papers have been filed. Should I cancel work travel to stay in the home?

Bert Steinmann answered on Jul 30, 2018

No, keep your job and income. Work travel is not like abandoning the home. Take pictures of anything valuable if you think she will try to hide or destroy items. (Not intended to be specific legal advice, always consult a local attorney) steinmannlaw.com #steinmannlaw

Q: 6 years now the AG website has shown I owe nothing in CS, I just received a notice that I owe 32000 in unpaid support??

How can it go on saying I owe nothing at all for 6 years and now all of sudden I have this large amount of arrears??

Bert Steinmann answered on Jul 28, 2018

That is because they just updated the information from the last 6 years. The AG website is not the end all be all of what you owe, the underlying order is.
