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.
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.
The mother of my kids will not let me keep my boys over night. Am I legally allowed to keep them for as long as I want. I am on the birth certificate and I have been apart of their lives until we split up about two months ago
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.
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.
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...Read more »
My husband has always had suspicions about the paternity of a child that was born during his marriage to his first wife.

I assume from your question you are asking if his parents could file a complaint for custodial interference.

If, however, he ran away, and they were not in agreement, you could be...Read more »

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...Read more »
During my pregnancy GBS was a big concern with my dr.s and I, because my previous son had passed away from it. After doing tests that came back negative, the dr.s assured me that my son WOULD NOT be infected with it. Now we are in the hospital (he is ten days old) now, and thank goodness we caught...

Sometimes,...Read more »
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.
