Lillian J. LaRosa's answer You should discuss this with your divorce attorney ASAP and review the Financial Statements you each submitted to the Court for the divorce and the terms of the Separation Agreement.
Are there other misrepresentations or nondisclosures he made?
Lillian J. LaRosa's answer First of all, smoking weed with the children is inappropriate and if the DCF learns of this "neglect" on his part, he will likely need to be removed from the home by you or you will need to leave the home with the children or you can be accused of also being neglectful by DCF. Are the children in any kind of therapy? Clearly this is a starting point for child care. A suicidal child should be brought to the ER of the local hospital and not told that your caring level is the cause. Have you...
Lillian J. LaRosa's answer Hello, it appears that you will need to file a Formal Petition for Appointment of Successor Personal Representative on your grandmother's estate and be appointed Successor unless there was an alternate to your mother named in grandmother's Will, in which case he or she can file for Successorship but will need your mother's death certificate also.
I would politely contact the court (in person), and simply inquire about the anger management. They may just clear up the issue and solve your problem. Or they may tell you that the magistrate put notes in the file that your boyfriend has to complete some program. If that's the case DO IT.
The classes are easy and if the result is no criminal case, no criminal record, case dismissed. . . it's a win win.
John Espinosa's answer For tax purposes, any income received from renting space on your driveway would be taxable likely as rental income on Schedule E. Consult a tax professional to go over your options with this kind of income. Seperately, the city or your real estate title documents may have restrictions that prevent you from doing that. Consult a real estate attorney to research that for you.
Call a lawyer. Don’t communicate with CAP as they will likely use it to prosecute you after the fact. *i am not clear on this but I’ve seen abuse of the system through companies who claim to be lawyers demanding payment on “stolen” merchandise which was completely recovered , on cases that were dismissed.
You don’t need Johnny Cochran , but a criminal lawyer will suffice....
Kevin L Dixler's answer All of the documentation must be certified and proper. Otherwise, the USCIS can issue a request for additional evidence, perhaps, even deny the application, which may seem unlikely. This can delay matters. If you have concerns, then consider hiring a competent immigration attorney. Good luck.
The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Lillian J. LaRosa's answer Is the child in agreement to living with you primarily when he or she is in college? Did you previously have a close relationship with the child? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you can pursue a Modification of support once he or she moves in with you.
Lillian J. LaRosa's answer You sound like you moved out of state some time after the Visitation Orders issued, am I correct? If so, then you would need a Modification and you can request a Modification of child support if you will need to travel to see the children or have them travel to see you. Potentially you are also experiencing a contempt situation but it is not clear from your question. It is very difficult to conduct litigation pro se from out of state and you should strongly consider hiring counsel to represent...
Hector E. Quiroga's answer It is unlikely that you will need to even file this waiver; however, if it is requested, you need to show that you are not going to be a threat to the relative you wish to bring over. The fact that the case was dropped would work in your favor.
Lillian J. LaRosa's answer In a long term marriage, generally yes. However, there are statutory factors involved which could result in a different outcome. Retirement and pension benefits acquired prior to the marriage are generally not included. Generally with shorter marriages the assets acquired during the marriage period are divided equally, but not the assets prior to the marriage.
Michael O. Smith's answer In most circumstances, you have 3 years to file a wrongful Death lawsuit in Massachusetts. You usually need to have a representative to the decedents estate appointed by the probate and family court to proceed with a wrongful death action. I suggest you contact an experienced attorney in these matters for help.
James A. Swartz's answer Although there are some circumstances when the "tolling" of a statute of limitations can occur, the clock almost always starts ticking from the date of injury, or when a potential plaintiff reasonably should have known of an injury. The fact that an initial injury has gotten worse over time does not usually present a scenario whereby the time for filing suit may be enlarged, however the particular factual circumstances would need to be examined.
Lillian J. LaRosa's answer Hello, if there is a visitation order contained in a Separation Agreement and Divorce Judgment or a Paternity or Custody and Support matter you can seek a Modification Complaint based upon her presence during visitation with information as to how she is having an adverse effect on the children - the background of this individual was not stated so it is difficult to make much of a comment-also the ages of the children are important to know. If the Court finds that she is not an acceptable...
Timothy Denison's answer It is likely that he cannot discharged that debt if it is part of a domestic support obligation from your divorce. Check with an experienced bankruptcy attorney near you and see if you can’t force him to pay it.
