If the Judge ordered a Sentence then there was a Conviction, and it was a Misdemeanor at General Sessions Court which was not bound over. Apparently he has one or more charges that were initiated by an Arrest Warrant at Sessions which were not disposed of, that is no conviction nor dismissal. DA... Read more »

Generally, you cannot successfully sue someone unless their actions or inactions caused you to suffer actual legally compensable injuries. Your question does not mention any such injuries, and it is difficult to imagine how the facts you describe would likely result in any such injury.

That short marriage does not give you an interest in his separate properties. Instead you should have your lawyer demand what you need to transition for the next five years, and not agree to an ID divorce until you get what you want. Without an agreement, he will have to prove grounds for the... Read more »
My mother and aunt were in charge of his estate I'm guessing. I have had zero contact since the day I testified. I have always wanted to sue him but was afraid to see him. Now that he is gone, can I sue the estate? Conviction happened in Tennessee. He was a resident and passed in Mississippi.

Looks like he died a MS resident. You might check in County of death as to whether there is a Probate or not. If so, then consult with a MS attorney about possibly filing a claim. But any suit for damages would have to be in TN where attack occurred, and your SOL ran a long time ago.

Go to the local Child Support Office and take all your court orders about your child with you. They may be able to help you. If that does not work out, contact Legal Aid. You may be able to get a pro bono lawyer.

Ask your lawyer or the Plaintiff who is suing you to correct your name. But it may be to your advantage that they do not get a judgment against the right party. I suggest you consult with an attorney first.

If the obligee is the affiant, then you can present it in Court where the obligee is a party. Otherwise it is inadmissible heresay. With any other affiant, subpoena them to Court to testify.

I assume the $1,000 does not include your filing fees, service fee, publication fee, or the ad litem’s fee.
Even then, $1,000 is awfully skinny to start a divorce case particularly if the attorney knew in advance you didn’t know where your wife is.
While you can sue, you might... Read more »

It sounds like you did not go to Court, so you do not know what if anything is going on. Call Court and find out when the divorce decree was entered. Order for CS starts then. If no case at Court, then you are not divorced. If CS is not paid, then you must file a Petition to hold him in... Read more »
