    Certainly make sure that you have the children away from the home, or take your wife somewhere out without the children. You can also tell her what you wrote here, that you are going to do the right thing for her and your children. However, since I don't know you or your wife, those are only general thoughts. On the legal side, you should hire a competent attorney ahead of time and give him or her all of your financial information. Best of luck.

    As with many people who post under the "divorce" heading, I am also reposting your question under immigration. It seems that the most important question you need answered is the questions about potentially losing your green card, so this question should be answered by an attorney who is proficient in immigration and family law matters. A divorce in Massachusetts can take anywhere from a day (joint agreement, walk-in to Middlesex Probate and Family Court) to years, depending on how contentious...

    I changed the practice area to "Bankruptcy" for you. This should be posted for a bankruptcy attorney to answer. Best of luck to you.

  5. Why doesn't my divorce decree have that i requested to go back to my maiden name

    I know that my colleagues have already answered this question, but I would like to add that a past client of mine received the divorce judgment back complete with a maiden name--just not her maiden name! Clerical errors do occur, and it's not intentional. We called the clerk's office and the correct judgment was issued the same day. Best of luck.

    Your husband's reasoning that he is going to stop paying his share of the psychologist bills because you did not ask his permission does not jibe with the probate courts' stance on always doing what's best for the children. If he has a legitimate concern that his children are being harmed by the psychologist, he needs to address this with you and the court. I see you mentioned that he did try to get a court order to stop the visits. Did he tell the judge that he believes you breached the...

    Pardon me if I end up sounding like Dear Abby, but if your e-mails have not stopped this behavior, and the issues are important enough to you, then the courts are there for you to find resolution. I agree with Attorney Molloy that this specific instance may not be dire enough to go to the courts, but certainly a pattern of this type of behavior that may infringe upon your legal rights as a co-parents may warrant a visit to an experienced family law attorney.

    Just like plumbers, doctors, clothing brands, and just about anything else, lawyers will charge their fees based upon several factors, including what the market will bear, experience, and other myriad factors. Don't worry so much about why they do, just find the attorney who you like the best and who fits in your budget. You never, ever have to sign an agreement--it's a contract with you and the attorney, so you should not sign it unless you are 100% comfortable with and fully understand the...

    Sorry you have such an unlovely neighbor. Where you have an imminent sale, I would advise you to consult quickly and directly with an attorney who specializes in real estate law. The issue is that your neighbor is threatening to block the sale of your property by putting a lien on your home to cover unspecified and unproven damages to his own property. Your neighbor cannot just put a lien on your property without court action, which he can get a few different ways: 1) he can sue you for...

    Since you state that you would like to represent yourself, the first step is to read the summons and complaint thoroughly and completely so that you can understand and answer in a timely manner. If there are minimal assets, no requests for alimony, no children of the marriage, and no marital home, then you may want to consider proposing a settlement with your wife. However, if child support, visitation, alimony, marital home, and/or substantial assets are at stake, you should consider hiring...
