Leonard R. Boyer's answer
The purpose of filing a motion in Immigration Court, citing "ineffective assistance of counsel" is done as part of a basis for seeking relief from the effects of the prior attorney. Immigration is truly federal law, so an attorney in any of the 50 states can handle your case. I am not offering an opinion on whether your prior counsel was ineffective or not (I don't know, nor does anyone else here). But for an Immigration Judge to accept that argument, there must be a causal relationship shown...

Leonard R. Boyer's answer
Your question is far too fact specific and beyond the scope of this forum. Your situation will require an in person consultation and detailed analysis. This is beyond the scope of what most attorneys would handle in a free consultation. This is a very complex situation, more so than you probably realize.

Q: Trying to get a emergency stay on my home i lost to foreclosure. I have a 15 year old daughter with Autism and injured

2 Answers | Asked in Foreclosure for New Jersey on
Answered on Mar 29, 2019
Leonard R. Boyer's answer
I am sorry to learn that your daughter is autistic and got hurt. But, unfortunately the lenders have no heart.

If you have a Judgment of Foreclosure, but there has not been an actual sheriff sale and you can afford to fund it, your best chance of saving your home would be through a Complex Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and loan modification through the Bankruptcy Court's mortgage modification program.

1 Answer | Asked in Domestic Violence for New Jersey on
Answered on Mar 28, 2019
Leonard R. Boyer's answer
Trying to represent yourself in Court is a bad idea. Not only are you emotionally involved, but you are not a trained attorney. You do not know the Court Rules, Rules of Evidence, case law, nor are you trained how to handle a legal case, especially if litigation is involved. You need to retain an experienced matrimonial attorney, with extensive domestic violence trial experience!

This is precisely the reason you should have retain an attorney. Did you check the Surrogate's office to see if this descendant had a will admitted to probate? You really need to retain an experienced NJ tax lien foreclosure attorney and have a complete document review during an in person consultation.

Leonard R. Boyer's answer
Your questions and concerns require an in person consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney. There are numerous factors that the Court will consider, but your case is extremely unlikely to go to trial. If both you and your not yet ex-wife retain counsel, a settlement agreement can be negotiated. Significantly more factual information is required and that would be far beyond the scope of this forum.

Your situation is far too complex for anything other than an in person consultation. You will need to retain an experienced immigration and matrimonial attorney to handle this matter. If the harassment continues, call 911 and file a complaint for harassment and seek a Temporary Restraining Order.

Although no one can give you precise answers to your question, without knowing all the facts, there are numerous circumstances when child support would not stop at age 23. I have personally been involved in several of these type of cases, and there is significant case law, which will allow that. Do not let geographic restrictions get in the way of retaining the best attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap...

Your friend needs to retain an experienced matrimonial attorney to handle this matter, but no one can guarantee, that even with an attorney, that your friend may still lose her children. There are a significant amount of information that would be required to give your friend meaningful legal advice.
