While he was working they were taking the money for his children out of his paycheck. In April of 2019 we were kicked out of our home and he lost his job. Is there any way I can help him get released or is he stuck in jail for a long time?
The best and easiest way is to make payment to catch up any arrearage. if not then his incarceration will be reviewed by a Judge, or you can request a review and ask for his release then, or work release, but you will need to be able to show he has employment to be considered for work release.
This is a contract issue and a matter of interpretation of the agreement. By the terms quoted it is ambiguous, meaning it has two possible meanings. The real question will be what was the parties intent at the time the agreement was entered. It is poorly drafted as this contingency should have...Read more »
My homeowners insurance refused to pay off my house after my husband passed away because they said it was in a grace period. It didn't get paid for that month but when he passed it was still in a grace period. Called around 7 or 8 times and they kept refusing to honor it.
This doesn't sound like a homeowners insurance but maybe life insurance. Ultimately it's a contract issue. If the default was not cured there may not be relief. However if he passed during the grace period, generally the policy should be honored.
I was serve on Friday 01-17-2020 with a notice of registration of foreign support order.
It states if i want to contest the validity or enforcement of the order, I must file a written request for hearing asking the court to vacate the order. Which forms do I have to fill out? I live in the... Read more »
to attack the validity of the judgement you would need to file that in Illinois. the only basis to contest the registration in NC is to contend and show that the order from Illinois is invalid, meaning it has been stricken or set aside or is on appeal. Disagreeing with the out of state order does...Read more »

members, her daughter is not being well taken care of. Can the daughter legally decide who she wants to live with without her mother’s permission when she turns 13? Can I have guardianship or adopt her this way?
No. She is a minor and cannot make those decisions until she is 18. You or other relatives who have a substantial relationship with the child, could seek custody, but to do so will need to able to prove the mother is unfit which is a high burden.
We married the 18th of January, He left to live with his father on the 14th of February. I moved out into my own rental July 18. I just need to know which date to put so the divorce paperwork is properly filled out.
He often withholds if he is working or not bc he and step mom say it isn’t my business. How can I (primary custody) enforce an order if I am not aware of he is lying. Often the girls are with their step mother and not him. He has every other weekend and Wednesdays if he isn’t working. He often... Read more »
She repeatedly slapped my daughter in the face she had her by the throat. My daughter want to know if they will report her to dad she has to children that I believe may have seen it she is worried about the kids but that she will get in trouble for hitting her back
If daughter was not the aggressor and didnt start the altercation, and if she has injuries, then go to the magistrates office and take out assault charges. Nothing prevents aunt from doing the same thing.
Clearly this is an unhealthy family relationship, and I would sever contact until it...Read more »

Yes. Without a Court order each parent has a right to keep the child. If she cannot provide suitable housing at the moment, you need to look out for the best interest of your child. If she resolves her housing issue you should still seek formalization of the custody arrangement to prevent disputes...Read more »
Until there are separation papers or other legal documents executed by both parties, you should be very careful and not flaunt any relationship. Both parties could be sued for alienation of affections.
HerWill and all is at a lawyer office. Who can go get a copy of the will to keep her daughter from taking everything. The paperwork has it started in them that her daughter and a few others are not to be anywhere around
A will by itself would not bar daughter from being present as the terms of the will are only in effect up upon death. A health care power of attorney would be necessary. If mom doesnt have one then its probably too late.
There are two different interactions with the law in this situation. The first is the criminal side which you mentioned. The state is in control of what charges to bring and the prosecution. It does seem like thet may have undercharged given then information provided.
what can I say or do to help him when I am at court, can I say that I do not want to testify against him on grounds that I want to get back to together with him and do not want to compromise and happy home or do I pled the 5th . Also we have kids together he pays child support for child care is... Read more »
