To date, he has not completed it. Finally in January 2024, there was a motion to compel on him but on that date I found out it had been cancelled. My attorney told me he and the other attorney had agreed that it would get turned in. It’s late February and I have not heard anything yet. Should... View More

All property that was acquired during marriage I paid for. Also he packed his stuff and left but took alot of stuff belonging to me that I had before we were married and some stuff I bought after we were married but while we were separated. IS this legal for him to do this?
If your husband has destroyed or taken property that belonged to you before the marriage, or property acquired during the marriage without your consent, this is not typically permitted under the law. Property brought into the marriage by one spouse is generally considered separate property, and...View More
Ex spouse didn’t do any of their financial responsibilities in the divorce decree. It’s pretty straight forward. Ex’s attorney is bringing in the ex’s adult kids on to testify stating harassment, stalker behavior etc. They have no idea I’ve moved out of state and no where near any of... View More
Without seeing the interrogatories, motion to compel, response, order on the motion to compel, motion for contempt, response, reporter’s record from the hearing on the motion for contempt, and the court’s order on the motion for contempt, it is impossible to offer an opinion as a lawyer on why...View More

Charging decisions are at the discretion of a prosecutor or DA (synonymous terms dependant on how a State titles the position).

In Arkansas, there isn't a specific "homewrecker" charge in the legal sense. However, if you're referring to a civil action for alienation of affection or criminal charges related to adultery, it's important to note that statutes of limitations can vary depending on the type of legal action.
If you believe your child is being abused or is in danger, it is crucial to take immediate action to protect their well-being. In cases of suspected child abuse or neglect, it is essential to report the situation to the appropriate authorities, such as Child Protective Services (CPS) or law...View More

My god daughter has been living with me for over 2yrs. Her parents are separated (for about the same amount of time) can they sign custody over to me in their divorce? Or does that have to be done separately?
It's called a guardianship and does require a Court action. You will do the divorce AND guardianship at the same time. Many Judges prefer two different actions. There is a lot going on in a guardianship. Many guardianships turn into adoption at some time. Parents often let the guardian (you)...View More
A vehicle loan company on a vehicle that was obtained during my marriage is trying to sue me (has filed a civil suit) for amount owed on the vehicle, that vehicle has been repossessed.

Usually the court order regarding distribution of assets and liabilities is not binding on your creditors. You can contact the lending company and provide them with a copy of the court order and they may, if they so wish, attempt to collect only from your husband, but they are not required to do...View More
My ex said that that that if my fiance moves in and spends the night while I have my kids, he is going to press contempt of court charges on me. But there is nothing in our divorce or custody papers saying my fiancee can't live here or spend the night while my kids are here.
If it is not addressed in the divorce or custody document you wouldn't be in contempt (it is frequently included, so make SURE that is the case). However, he can ask the court for a modification to restrict cohabitation.
I would expect that to be successful. Conservative state,...View More
I was looking over my child support payments, no balance. And I always wondered if it is possible to open a child support case while married. My ex-wife opened this case in 2009 but we were divorced in 2010, so I always wondered how was that even possible to open a case while married.
We have two children and I will be keeping the home. I can't uproot the children and cause them more trauma to get our 30 day separation but my husband isn't taking me seriously when I tell him to move out. His family doesn't want to get involved, but I can't get him to move out of the house.
You do not have to live separate and apart ,in the literal sense , to file for divorce but separate and apart as not being husband and wife ie no sex ,separate bedrooms etc etc. The real issue is, are you safe?
We separated after he hit my son, I have asked multiple times to please sign but he wouldn't. I have children from a previous relationship. We have no assets, children nothing! I don't know where he currently lives & have no idea how to go about getting a divorce. Please help me.
