  • I need a straightforward prenup. Will a legalzoom or other cheap/easy solution hold up in court?

    I will spend the money and time on a bigger, badder solution if needed, but this seems so routine that I don't think I need it (wild guess). We have no kids, our assets are already divided and neither of us wants to pay alimony to the other. I'm i...

    George’s Answer

    One option for you and your spouse would be to jointly engage a trained mediator who could help draft the necessary documents to memorialize those issues you do agree upon. He or she could also lend assistance and guidance in settling any unresolved issues and bring to light matters you and she may not have even thought about. This is usually a less costly and less contentious way of settling all issues involved in a divorce.

    I just received the judgment nisi for the divorce and the judge checked the box that does not "merge" the financial settlement agreement with the divorce judgment. What exactly does this mean? No attorneys were involved in the divorce proceedin...

    I would agree with the previous answers except that in certain rare instances, where the interests of justice require (such as to prevent someone from becoming a public ward), surviving Judgments have been modified by the Courts

  • In our divorce decree my ex wife had to pay some bills that were in my name.

    It's been 2 years and she has not payed them and they continue to go against my credit because they are in my name. What can I do to make her pay. These bills are listed in the divorce decree as her responsibility.

    George’s Answer

    You should be aware that your creditors can still come after you to collect the money due since they are not bound by the terms of your divorce agreement. This makes it essential that you file a Contempt action and ask the judge to enforce the obligation of your spouse to make these payments before the bill collectors come calling and your credit suffers more.

  • Went to court in 1986 on a dangerous weapons charge found not guilty but just found out i am still a felon

    but have paper work that i am not guilty

    George’s Answer

    I am not sure where you got the information that you are a felon. You certainly would not be as a result of a charge you were found not guilty of. You may have received bad information or you may have misinterpreted what you were told. There could be any number of possible explanations, but you should get a copy of your CORI and schedule an appointment with a competent criminal lawyer in your area.

  • I am on probation, is it a violation of my probation, if my ex-wife brings me in to family probate for a matter on child support

    i been unemployed and she has been getting money just not full amount

    George’s Answer

    It would only be a violation if the terms of your probation or the Judge's order specifically require you to pay your Court ordered support or otherwise obey court orders. You would be well advised to return to the Probate Court to seek a reduction in your order rather than let arrears accumulate in any event.

    i hit on a young lady once when i was on the train headed home she said she was a b*tch i laughed, we joked by the end of the trip i thought we were friends i seen her around every so often and would say hi or try to shake her hand recently i seen...

    George’s Answer

    Any unwanted or unauthorized touching of another is potentially a criminal offense of assault and battery. You are certainly entitled to a hearing and the issue of whether the young lady consented to the touching, whether expressly or by inference would come to light. I would certainly raise the issue of her actions giving you the reasonable expectation that putting you arm around her would not be offensive to her
