    It appears that your were the custodial parent. My question is... Was there an existing order in place prior to the Complaint for Modification, if so, then you are entitled to "collect" that money that was not paid to you for the child support, (as this is not a retroactive payment). Maybe a contempt motion.....??? You may not have gotten a judgment because you may have not filled out the paperwork indicating that you are seeking this. The court can only rule on what you ask it to rule on....

    First on point is that you have two separate issue you have to argue. First, physical custody, which is essentially the child's primary address. The second is legal custody. For couples to share legal custody, the parties have to be able to discuss the issues and be reasonably amicable. If the parties are not then it is unlikely that the Judge will allow shared custody. You must remember the court really is only concerned about the child, not necessarily you or your ex. A parenting plan can be...

    The first two attorneys who answered the question provided insightful answers. Even if you must continue to pay child support, it may be worth while to speak with an attorney to check the child support guidelines as the law changed last year and resulted in about a 10% reduction for the payor, (you). Many attorneys, included myself offer a free consultation. It might be worth your time to seek person to person advise. Good luck.

    I agree with the suggestion given by Attorney Rao, to contact your DOR case worker immediately, if you have one. You have not mentioned if you were making payments through DOR, or directly to the other parent, or if a court date for a hearing has been set. I would also suggest that you seek legal representation given the severity of the consequences for failing to make these child support payments. In the future.... if you have a material change in circumstances, regarding your finances, a...

    You have a right to a copy of your CORI. I would suggest you attain a copy yourself and read what is says. Your copy may have more information on it than what your employer can get. It depends on the type of job your looking for. You can find more information about this by visiting this website, http://www.mass.gov/eopss/docs/chsb/20080502-cori-regulations-v10.pdf#page=22 Please keep in mind, that if you were convicted, as you stated, Massachusetts has a law that allows the government...

  7. Does anybody knows a pro bono atty in CAMBRIDGE OR BOSTON MASS?????

    To answer your question, you may have good fortune by contacting the Massachusetts Bar Association, (MBA)and making your request. They can provide you the name of an attorney who will work pro bono, or at a reduced rate depending on your financial situation. You can find MBA on the internet. You may have a jurisdictional issue here. As I understand it, the long arm statute prevents the MA court from making a judgment on child custody when one has already been issued in another state. An...

    I agree with attorney Malone. Call the police. He may be a registered sex offender. The police can find this out very easily. You need to be safe. Do not answer any calls from him and don't talk or meet with him, under any circumstances.

    Save the "fur", and the can to preserve the evidence. You may have a products liability case against Pepsi. I do have to warn you that if you hire an attorney, it can be an expensive case to try. You will have to have the "fur" analyzed to determine what it is, and then the attorney must conduct an investigation to determine when, and how the "fur" got into the can. Pepsi may strike a settlement offer to avoid this going public, however, if it is determined that the claim is false, then you,...

  10. I paid the GC in full who did not pay his subcontractors. Now a sub contractor has placed a mechanics lien on the property.

    The sub-contractor has a legal right to place a mechanics lien on your property. The rationale is that you can sue the Contractor. The mechanic's lien is an available remedy to subcontractor's because it is your property that benefited from the materials and labor supplied. You basically hired the Contractor to act as your agent. Most homeowner's don't understand that when they hire a contractor, and the Contractor doesn't pay his subs, then that homeowner may incur a Mechanic's Lien. If s/he...
