I am not sure what you mean be "Abstract of Judgment". Usually you record a "Transcript of Judgment" in order to effect a lien on real estate. That needs to be renewed every 6 years. If you had a valid lien on the property, it may still be in effect. If not, you may be still...Read more »

He's fallen behind over the past 8 months. He's unemployed and that situation is likely to continue for the next several months. He may have to file for bankruptcy, but,if he files for bankruptcy, will that go on my credit record?
My dad recently settled (not sure if that's the right word) a divorce from my step-mom of 30 years (I'm 33). She was given the house I grew up in and with that has decided that means everything in the house is hers now too. After the lengthy and painful divorce, my dad just wants to move... Read more »
It sounds like those items belong to either your father or his now ex-wife. Entitlement to those items is goverened by the divorce decree. If your father does not want to pursue it, it may be that your only recourse is to appeal to her good nature. Good luck with that.
I haven’t seen my child in a few years. my ex agrees to parenting time then cancels last minute, I call almost every night and am ignored.

This depends on the exact wording of the divorce decree. You can not go back and try to change that. Your husband's social security will not be affected. Your husband may be able to pursue her for the back child support-depending on how far back it goes. He should get a lawyer to review this...Read more »
I am divorced and have a custody agreement in place. My ex has not visited my daughter nor contacted her in almost 8 years. He has not paid child support for the past 4 years. Can I file to terminate his parental rights? My daughter is almost 13 and I have talked with her about it and she wants it... Read more »
Generally, you can only "terminate parental rights" in the context of a step-parent adoption. So, if your husband wants to adopt your child, it is necessary to terminate the parent-child relationship between your daughter and her father. You may have grounds to do so based on what you...Read more »
What happens if I do not fill out information papers? She has over $20,000 in back payments and continuely hides from the state.

The district court granted the motion to set aside the court order of dissolution of marriage. The divorce got reopened based on the Rule 16 (fraud). I was named as a beneficiary of the life insurance policy; however, the life insurance policy was not disclosed during the divorce. Does the... Read more »
I am assuming that the court set aside the property orders, but not the decree of dissolution of marriage. You are probably still divorced. In that case the revocation upon divorce statute may apply if the insured dies. You could ask the court to have you named you as beneficiary if appropriate You...Read more »
We filed our case Dec 3 2019. We went through mediation and pre hearing with the judge already. This is a child custody hearing. Is she allowed to get a lawyer so late in the process?

It may be a criminal matter if credit cards were really opened without your knowledge/consent. You can report this to the local police. If this was done by your spouse, you can also deal with it in the divorce. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.
I've been clean , her father and I get along and he said he will sign whatever he need to give me back my parental rights. Could you tell me , What papers do I need to file with the courts. what's steps do I take to get my parental rights back. Thank you
If this was done in a divorce or parental responsibility case, you and her father can file a stipulation to modify parental responsibilities/custody. The court will probably approve that. If this was a dependency and neglect case, you will also need approval by the county department of social...Read more »
This depends on exactly what the divorce decree says. Do you get half of the profit or does she just need to refi/sell? You should consult with an attorney to review your paperwork and advise you how best to proceed.
