If the lawyer needs more time to prepare a response to the motion or to prepare for the hearing, he can ask for it. It's then up to the court to decide whether to grant that request. You can oppose the request, but why would you?
The father and I are not in a relationship. He moved out of country earlier this year without notifying the courts and expects me to join him and bring our child so he can continue to see her 50% of the time. We have 50/50 joint custody, although he often gives up his time with our child. This past... Read more »
You say you have 50/50 custody. I'm assuming you mean you have a court order that awarded each parent joint physical and legal custody? You got those custody orders here in California and then Dad moved to Mexico. You don't want to move to Mexico. You want to stay here with the child...Read more »
My husband broke his foot in 5 places and was sent away from the emergency room in Blythe CA. The Doctor he saw in Yuma AZ that did the surgery said he should have been admitted and had the surgery done immediately. He had to wait several weeks for the swelling to get down enough for the surgery.
What's the injury? Did the delay in treatment cause any additional injury; exacerbate the original fractures? There is no malpractice without causation. i.e. a causal relationship between an identifiable act of negligence and resulting injury.
If there are no custody orders, there is nothing legally preventing you from relocating. However, if the other parent is involved in the child's life - as you say, has 10% custody - the other parent could object and file a petition of his own, for custody. Better to be safe, file a parentage...Read more »
I’m sorry it wouldn’t let me write more above. He was arrested for DV back in July in Las Vegas. 1st count misdemeanor, but hasn’t been convicted yet. His attorney seems to think he can dismiss it since the situation was minor. We are wondering if we should continue the adoption case until... Read more »

He could claim entitlement to reimbursement and make a claim that his contributions increased the value of your separate property home. I recommend you get a prenup. If you are living together, you can also get a cohabitation agreement (similar to a prenup)
My husband and I are filing for an uncontested divorce. We have no kids, no shared finances, no shared properties, I didn’t change my name, and no co-signs. It should be a relatively easy split. I have resided in CA over 6 months as well.
The filing fee is a "first appearance fee". It is paid when filing both the petition and the response to the petition. If the matter proceeds by default, i.e. no Response is filed, then the respondent does not pay this first appearance fee.
Spousal support is calculated using several different statutory factors (Family Code section 4320) including lifestyle to which the parties became accustomed during the marriage, income of the parties, and other factors.

Ask the attorney who represented you in your divorce to explain the document. Otherwise, if you were not represented, I'm sure this could be accomplished by a paid consultation with an attorney. You need to seek out that attorney - i.e. contact attorneys on your own, rather than waiting for...Read more »
This is a tech question. Have you asked AT&T if the messages can be retrieved? Why is this information necessary for your case? California is a no-fault state. Meaning, an affair is not relevant, unless you are trying to prove that community funds were used to finance the affair, or...Read more »

IM in a middle of a divorce. I have been paying the debt solely for a year. Im now in a situation of BK. My question is will I be repaid for the time i have been paying the debt solely and if so how do i collect that money if the spouse can't pay their share?
Debt incurred during the marriage is considered community debt. Liability for that debt is therefore shared equally. However, family courts are considered courts of equity. If one party has a better ability to pay off that debt, the court may divide it in a way that reflects the parties'...Read more »
