Once your ex qualifies for SSDI the children under age 18 will also be entitled to get social security checks I believe. So the child support needs to be recalculated using your ex's SSDI, your income, and somehow the SS payments to the children also need to be factored in. I would have to look...Read more »
Supplemental Needs Trusts are very tricky and if mismanaged can cause the beneficiary to be deemed to have assets that are counted against their eligibility for Medicaid which is usually the purpose of setting up the trust. To insure that you get good advice you need to take the trust to an...Read more »
I also have our son (3) and have been taking care of him full time and want custody but I’m not on the birth certificate due to emergencies in the hospital, our son was flighted and my wife couldn’t go so I went with him and missed signing it how can I get full custody. She’s been gone and... Read more »
I think there is a presumption that you are the legal father since you were married to the mother. You can probably file for a divorce and include allegations to establish your paternity as well. It's a bit tricky and the on line forms probably aren't set up to do this, so get an Attorney to...Read more »
I have depression also and my parents just harp on me and I have gotten to the point that I cannot handle it anymore because I am starting to get bad grades, and I no longer can see friends because of it. It has been happening for 5 years now and I cannot handle it anymore
I think every 17 year old feels a mixture of hormones and depression that makes life challenging at that age. You are still legally a minor with no rights to contract so you can't rent an apartment among other things. Getting good or bad grades is something you can control so I would focus on...Read more »
There is a Judgment entered that I never agreed to or signed granting only visitation 3 days per week for 1.5 hours each time. My visitations were suppose to progress to more parenting time gradually; however, bio mom makes excuses as to why I can’t visit at certain times. My work schedule varies... Read more »
It sounds like you are still following the parenting plan for a new born. At one year of age you should be able to take your child for overnight visits. You will need to pin down a consistent day on which you get your overnight visit however as it is just too hard for the other parent to...Read more »
I'm a bit confused. Your location says Los Angeles so are you sure you need an Oregon Attorney? Also did your Attorney file or not file your bankruptcy? Are you correctly stating that you paid the full fee your Attorney required prior to filing your bankruptcy or is the situation that you paid...Read more »
You are a minor so you have no legal rights yet. You can't sign a contract or at least no contract you sign will be legally binding until you are 18. Your mother is legally responsible for you until you turn 18. So no, you don't have adult rights to decide where you want to live and to be...Read more »
I can't think of any easy way to do this. I would focus on objective evidence of how the father's behavior is negatively impacting your son. You are going to need a lawyer to help you with this most likely. But look for things like school records showing that your son isn't doing well or that...Read more »
Six months ago my divorce was finalized. I got sole legal custody of my 16 year old, who now lives with me full time. If the child suddenly changed their mind and wanted to live with the other parent, and moved all their stuff out of their home, and into the other parents home without permission,... Read more »
You are in a tough situation. As between you and the other parent, the other parent has to defer to you being awarded legal custody. But be careful what you wish for because if the other parent refuses to allow your 17 year old daughter to move in then there is nothing stopping your 17 year old...Read more »
Unfortunately the availability of free or low income legal services in Oregon are scarce. You can call Legal Aid (LASO) but they only take a certain type of cases so they are very limited. https://oregonlawhelp.org//resource/oregon-legal-aid-offices
It depends. Once a divorce is final as to property it can't be re-litigated. Spousal support has to be awarded in the original divorce or it can't be requested later. If spousal support is in the initial divorce, then a proceeding can be filed to amend or extend it so long as it is still in...Read more »
It shouldn't cause a problem unless the purchase papers have some type of clause that triggers something when the co-signor files bankruptcy. You and the purchaser should review the purchase documents that you co-signed. I would be surprised if there was anything but since I can't assume there...Read more »
The buyer, without our knowledge, approval or consent placed an ad to rent our house. The ad was an almost exact copy of the listing description. They included two pictures of our property in the ad. They even had people scheduled to tour the house 2 weeks before the closing date!!! The only... Read more »
They would be entitled to rent the house once the sale closes. But it sounds like they acted prematurely. I wouldn't jump to conclusions without knowing the facts. Have your real estate agent contact their real estate agent and get this sorted out, ie no rental advertisements until the sale...Read more »
if he dies and his estate settles the mortgage of the loan, and I take less of the inheritance to pay back the loan, does my sister get to claim half of the equity of the house we live in? we have paid interset and monthly in this house she has not paid a dime. Also, he is thinking of just selling... Read more »
You need to go see a lawyer. You can have all sorts of problems when you are buying a house but the house is held in someone else's name as is the mortgage. It sounds like you need a contract for the sale of the house from your dad to you to memorialize what is really going on, ie your dad helped...Read more »
I found out he opened a bank acct, and put my daughter on it (if your under 18 a parent has to be attached to the minors acct) without my knowledge, so he could transfer her money without me knowing. Seems great contributing more to the child right? But he bought her clothes, then I also gave her... Read more »
In theory, Dad can do what he wants with his money including giving your joint daughter money, absent some court order that says otherwise. It sounds like the real problem is how this might be a bad parenting idea, ie giving money to a minor if the minor is not mature enough to handle the money,...Read more »
Hood river Oregon. I filed a motion for prejudgment temporary order in a custody case.
A few days ago the lady at the courthouse gave me a packet of papers to serve to my wife and on the front page is an order to show cause and on it it says the motion is granted with the Box check... Read more »
I suspect the motion that was granted was your motion for an order to show cause. In other words, you made a motion to ask the court to set a hearing date and the motion was granted and a hearing date is not set. That's all you have accomplished so far. The hearing date is the opportunity for...Read more »
Your question doesn't make sense. Filing a small estate's affidavit as a claiming successor doesn't mean the person is an heir. You have to follow the devises per the decedent's will and if there wasn't a Will you have to follow Oregon's intestacy laws. You also have to pay the decedent's debts...Read more »
