Richard J. Head's answer The time period is not dispositive of the issue of annulment. You probably will have to file for divorce, unless you meet the specific criteria set out in the annulment statute.
Richard J. Head's answer In most courts the answer would be yes, at least for a time. There is no chart for maintenance like there is for child support. The court will basically look at her ability to provide for her own needs, and your ability to do so as well.
Richard J. Head's answer Yes.the other party might file in Benton, and get the custody matters moved back there, but usually first to file is the jurisdiction where the case stays, as long as you moved your residence before filing.
Richard J. Head's answer Until there is a court order, either parent can keep the children, but as soon as you do, the other party will take the matter to court. The better practice is to file, and ask the court to enter temporary orders while the matter proceeds.
Richard J. Head's answer Once criminal charges are brought,only the state can drop them. The person who initially complained is the victim, and as such their wishes will be considered, but are not determinative of whether or not the charges will be dropped.
Richard J. Head's answer Yes, but your problems with your neighbor may get worse while in court. Neighbor disputes are horrible, and usually continue until one of the parties moves away. They are also expensive, and seldom will be taken on a contingency fee by an attorney. The reason they are so bad is because you can't get away from them. Both parties are usually certain that they are in the right, and that the other party is wrong. In many instances both parties retaliate, believing they are justified because "the...
Richard J. Head's answer Wih a nine year old child it is doubtful the courts would order a paternity test, and even if you had one done privately, the court would probably still require your husband to pay child support. The issue is the best interest of the clild, and usually it is in the best interest of the child that support be paid.
Richard J. Head's answer I assume from your question you are asking if his parents could file a complaint for custodial interference. If they removed him from their home, and left him homeless, you would not be in trouble for giving him a place to stay. If, however, he ran away, and they were not in agreement, you could be charged with custodial interference if you let him stay with you.
Richard J. Head's answer You can always hire an attorney, and have them ask permission to substitute as counsel for the previous attorney. The court may allow it, or may refuse, if the judge believes the substitution should not occur.
Richard J. Head's answer In your divorce the court will divide all marital property. The court will also restore all non-marital property to the person to whom it belongs. Title to property being in joint names does not mean it is marital. If it is marital, however, it will be divided, but the division may be by giving it to him, and offsetting its value with other property awarded to you. The court is obliged to divide property equitably, but that does not always mean equally. If you have a lawyer in your divorce they...
Richard J. Head's answer From your question, it appears your son did not sustain an injury as a result of what you believe was negligent medical attention. Generally, in Kentucky, you don't have a viable suit if you did not sustain an injury. This is similar to a situation where you "almost were in a wreck" but was not. The answer would be different, perhaps, if your child were injured. Then it becomes an issue of whether or not the injury could have been avoided, if the doctor had performed in accordance with the...
Richard J. Head's answer One year from the date of the injury, if you knew you were injured. There are additional rules regarding unknown injuries, hidden injuries, and additional rules apply if the injury is due to an auto accident. This is a very complicated area of the law, and you should immediately talk to a lawyer about when your statute of limitations runs. Don't assume it has already run, it may not have, because of the multitude of rules that apply. It is as dangerous to assume that you are already too late as...
Richard J. Head's answer If you are in a position where you owe them a duty, you could be sued, or perhaps prosecuted. If you owe them no duty, such as when passing a wreck that had earlier occurred, and in which you were not involved, then you will not be charged. It is the existence of the duty that controls. Sometimes, a duty comes about by virtue of a persons occupation, such as a lifeguard, or a school teacher. If that person stood by, and allowed a person in their care to be harmed, there could be both civil and...
Richard J. Head's answer Go back to the court that entered the decree, and ask to have the divorce decree set aside. A cheaper and easier fix would be to get married again, assuming you are still with the same spouse. A remarriage while married doesn't change your status. The divorce decree did, so you are currently not married.
