William N. Sosis' answer Probably Argentina. But since I'm not familiar with Argentina, be wary that International divorce laws vary. Even within the US, divorce laws can vary between states. You should also consider any jurisdictional issues that may be brought up by your spouse.
William N. Sosis' answer This is very serious. You only have 10 days before a final restraining order hearing. This gives you incredibly little time. If there's still time left (2-3 days) there's fortunately a legal technique that a knowledgeable attorney can use that gets you more time to defend yourself against any false allegations. But you must quickly contact an attorney who has experience with this. Having a final restraining order entered against you is very ugly. They stay with you until you get them vacated...
William N. Sosis' answer If you canceled your order and received a full refund why would you think you're entitled to keep the item? Just imagine if everyone did that. How do you think Amazon and its vendors would revise their return/refund policies? If current online purchasing policies are designed to encourage confidence in buyers, why would you want to destroy the sellers' trust? You should preserve the protections you have from your own indecisiveness or bad decisions. Don't create unnecessary problems for...
William N. Sosis' answer Appeals from trial court decisions are 'as of right', so most likely yes. But a reliable answer requires that you first speak with an attorney.

William N. Sosis' answer Children have a right to see both their parents. A custodial parent cannot unilaterally decide to stop the other parent from parenting his children and being part of their lives.

You need a family law attorney to review and discuss the matter with you. Contact a family law attorney that will give you a...

William N. Sosis' answer I think your question is more suitable for posting in the Family Law section. Regardless, I think what can happen mostly depends on how much you spent, whether you used a joint credit card, the trust and quality of your marriage, and how your husband feels about it when he finds out. You might otherwise want to contact an attorney for a no-cost consultation.
William N. Sosis' answer Consumer-fraud claims (CFA) in New Jersey are subject to the six-year statute of limitations (SOL), N.J.S. 2A:14-1. New Jersey has an excellent law protecting consumers.

William N. Sosis' answer NJ has what's called "divorce from bed and board." But you should contact an attorney for a free consultation. Depending on what you both want you may be able to do it yourselves or with a little help from an attorney.
William N. Sosis' answer That's a touchy question. First, New Jersey courts have long-settled the question of non-custodial parents having girlfriends (or boyfriends). Generally, divorce or dissolution doesn't preclude people from moving on with their lives. The touchy part is determining what's actually happening in terms of facts. If you're looking to change custody or parenting time based on things like the sleeping arrangements or the child's preference, you'll need to convince the court that a change is really...
William N. Sosis' answer There's really not enough information to provide you with an adequate answer. However, assuming New Jersey has jurisdiction, you should consult with a family law attorney. The attorney will interview you and gather all the facts necessary and provide you with the best option(s). You'll then be able to decide how to best proceed. You should also know two things: (1) that New Jersey courts will first determine what the best interests of the child are before making a ruling, and (2) children have...

William N. Sosis' answer Defendant's non-compliance with a court order permits you to file a motion with the court. The court can now consider you a judgment creditor. The court will make an ability to pay determination if the defendant claims a lack of funds.
William N. Sosis' answer Whether you can actually stop the relocation will depend on several facts. So there's no doubt you should immediately consult with a family law attorney to discuss the facts of your case.

Be sure to look for an attorney that gives free consultations. This will help you decide what's best in your situation.
William N. Sosis' answer Parental rights are never terminated lightly because it's a constitutional right. However, if you motion the court and show that (1) the biological parent has abandoned his parental obligations and (2) that the best interests of children would be promoted through adoption, then yes. It also helps if your current husband is the children's psychological father. Contact a family law attorney.
William N. Sosis' answer You can file for sole custody...but whether your request is granted depends on many factors...such as how a change in custody will affect the children. Your ex-wife might decide to file for a modification of the parenting schedule and/or child support based on changed circumstances. Alternatively, you can both agree to settle the matter through a consent order. But in all cases, the court's primary concern will be the welfare and best interests of the children. You should contact a family...
