Childcare costs can be added to the child support worksheet, but it is entirely discretionary. This means it is entirely up to your specific judge. The factors that most commonly affect this decision are the comparative incomes between the parents and the parenting schedule. If parents earn similar...Read more »
Wacky , vexatious litigator as opposing counsel. She filed an IAH on me without telling them I am self representing . She also failed to provide me evidence I requested in discovery prior to filing this injunction as she’s trying to deprive me my constitutional right to write as a noted author... Read more »
I can understand your frustration, but frankly nothing you provided sounds unusual. You do not have a constitutional right to publish information about a family law case. Family courts regularly seal records to prevent dissemination of sensitive information. This is explicitly allowed by the...Read more »
My ex and I have 50/50 joint custody that we agreed upon in 2017 in mediation, before that I had full custody and he had alternative weekends. I have final descion making. He moved 50 miles away from me/the children's school. I am primary residential parent and have been since 2016 divorce.... Read more »
No, there is no law that imposes any maximum distance or commute time. It would be your burden to prove specifically how the commute is detrimental and that the detriment is more significant than any detriment that would result from modification of the parenting schedule. Based only on what you...Read more »
The longer you wait, the worse any potential consequences may be. It would be better to have an attorney communicate with law enforcement for you but, if that is not an option, you may want to notify them that your previous statements may have been incorrect. You do not have to outright say you...Read more »
I am assuming that you and your ex did not have a domestic partnership agreement or other written agreement concerning the assets acquired during the course of your relationship. Absent such an agreement, and generally speaking, if your name is on the Deed to this home in addition to the mortgage,...Read more »
You could have legal consequences. It depends upon the facts of the situation and any document or agreement that you may have signed. I recommend speaking with an employment law attorney to learn your legal rights and options before making a decision.
As a US citizen spouse sponsoring a foreign national, your wife would be considered an immediate relative. Currently it’s taking about a year from the filing until the interview date but maybe longer due to the covid crisis.
Likely not much. Since your rights have been terminated, you are no longer an interested party in the adoption proceeding. Am attorney would need a lot more information to evaluate whether anything can be done at this point. I can assure you that without extremely competent local counsel, you will...Read more »
You will need to file a petition (or motion, depending on which state the current custody agreement was issued in) in the jurisdiction where the custody agreement was filed. You will have the opportunity to explain that she has not seen her child in four years and that you should have sole custody....Read more »
Most likely, no. Although, you didn't say how old the dog is, now. Most states and municipalities require dogs to have a rabies vaccine every year (if you get the yearly vaccine), so that could land you in trouble IF the vet reports it, but that's unlikely. They will probably just be glad...Read more »
She got mad cause I came into some money I got tired of her asking for money so I went and stayed at a hotel. While I was there she broke into my room and stole everything. I want to press charges. Now shes threatening me
You need to contact the law enforcement agency in whose jurisdiction your brother's home is located to file a report for burglary, theft, and threatening communications. You may also have to seek a protective order through the Pima County courts. Very tough situation. I wish you the best.
The new girlfriend of my step daughter had a divorce in 2009 and one of the charges on docket said "child abuse multidisciplinary account fee" on it. Does that mean there was child abuse involved? And is that something that can make that person be prohibited from seeing my step daughter?
No and no. The "Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Account Fee" is like a 911 tax on your cell phone bill - just another sneaky way government has found to take your tax dollars and divert them into a government program which may or may not actually benefit anyone outside of government.
I cannot envision how you could be forced to move back in. If you have a safe place to live and are not otherwise breaking any laws, law enforcement is unlikely to attempt to force you to return to the residence where your parent or guardian lives.
You will need to show up for your court date and ask the Court for permission to perform service by publication. There are very specific rules for service by publication which must be followed (Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure 4.1(l), that's a lower case "L") and you must mail a copy...Read more »
You can learn more about filing a provisional patent application at uspto.gov - there are many resources for inventors there. If you wish to do this yourself, you can use efs-web as an unregistered e-filer. Your documents should be in pdf format. Look into the requirements for micro or small...Read more »
I want to sell and I reached out to a friend in real estate who wants to buy my house for cash tomorrow. The online real estate agencies such as Zillow rate my house between 3:55 and 4:10. This guy wants to flip the house so he's deducting all the things that he says he has to repair from the... Read more »
Lots to analyze here from a business decision standpoint relative to determining value but it appears the broker/investor is looking to make money for the costs and effort related to addressing the deferred maintenance. So lots of factors to consider in seeing what is best option for you. The...Read more »
I was married in CA in 2009. Moved to AZ and bought a house with ex husband in 2010 with newborn. Filed for divorce myself with no lawyer in 2011 and it was granted 9/2012. The divorce decree and parenting plan is archaic and based on the naivety of a young me in my 20s who somehow thought I could... Read more »
It would be necessary to review all of your current court orders and the Decree to adequately provide advice on your current issues. There appears to be grounds to review and request changes to your current Legal Decision Making and Parenting Time Orders. There has been at least 5 years since your...Read more »
