The divorce decree states that she had 90 days from april 30 2008 to get a appraisal and he has 30 days and neither of them have done this. She she was the equity in the house that wehave been paying for for 12 years.
Your question is going to be fact intensive. I don't think I have enough information here to fully answer your question. The terms of your decree will likely govern. However, there may have to be some adjustments based upon a 12 year delay. I would recommend taking a copy of your divorce decree to...Read more »
This is for an order on order to show cause. My incorrectly spelled maiden name is also on it (and everything was filed with my married name). The certificate of service also does not have an address on it or my ex’s signature. This is in Utah.
Generally a court order will have an electronic signature stamp at the top right corner. If you have a question about whether or not it is valid, your best bet would be to call the Court to confirm. You could also do a consultation with an attorney who could check the docket online to give you...Read more »

A child protective order requires that a child is being physically or sexually abused or is in imminent danger of being abused.

I’m sorry that you are going through these problems with your daughter. Any time you are dealing with custody issues, I suggest having an attorney. The initial decision is crucial and you want to make sure it is done right. It is always harder to change down the road.
If you both agree to stop using ORS to collect child support, this should not be a problem provided that neither of you are using any public assistance for the children. Generally, the parent receiving support can request that ORS close the case. However, if you children are receiving public...Read more »

Now the kids are old enough to stay home alone so they don't go to day care anymore and she makes about $700 more a month then I do.

Generally in a court order, child support and child care costs are 2 different things. Typically the court will order a monthly support amount and also include an order that you split all work related child care costs. It sounds like you agreed to a different arrangement where you made a monthly...Read more »

Generally speaking the Court will set a mandatory appearance for anything 31 mph over the speed limit. While the charges in court generally match a citation, it is not impossible to add other charges. I would recommend contacting a local attorney to help address this issue. They should be able to...Read more »

First and foremost, it sounds like you should consider hiring an attorney. It sounds like your ex and his attorney are taking a very aggressive approach in the custody litigation. Their approach seems to be working to keep you from the kids. I suggest finding an attorney who can help level the...Read more »
There is this co worker at her job who called her in a secluded room and try to unbutton her pants twice with out my wife's consent, to the point where my wife had to lie about being on her period. Two separate times.
I’m sorry to hear about what you and your wife are going through. I would recommend calling the police first. If the co-Worker is charged with a crime, the police can also implement a no contact order.
Additionally, your wife may have civil remedies available to her. She likely qualifies...Read more »

I think that you may be confusing the time to respond to a Petition (likely for custody or divorce) and the time to respond to an order to show cause. The 21 days to respond applies to a Petition or complaint that is served upon you. On the other hand, an Order to Show cause has different...Read more »

By statute, your children’s preferences are one of several factors that the court may consider. Once a child is 14, the court is required to give added weight to that child’s preference. That does not mean that the court will just do what the child wants.
Custody cases can be very complex. What to do often depends on the specific facts of the case. A paternity test may or may not be required. You indicated that the mother's mother has temporary custody in place. If that is a court order, you son may already have had his rights adjudicated, at least...Read more »
