    Your marriage was less than a year so chances of you obtaining an "alimony" are highly unlikely based upon those factors. However, you can always seek some type of lump sum "property settlement" which would get some funds to you, however again, as prior counsel pointed out, any equitable distribution in a dissolution action depends on several factors. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions you may have at attymccabe@gmail.com or call me at 203-377-4111. Regards, Thomas McCabe

    If you are not satisfied with your lawyer then you should seek other counsel. Other than that you should follow the advice of your counsel. If you would like to discuss details further feel free to contact me.

    Objection to Motion for Summary Judgment and then you need to draft a Memorandum of Law in Opposition to the Motion for Summary Judgment. Be sure to have it filed at least five days or so before the hearing. You will need affidavits to put into question the moving party's affidavit, which will require someone with knowledge of the facts as the other attorneys advised. Also if this is a property foreclosure there are other grounds to object to summary judgment...it depends on the action.

    File an appearance with your motion. That will show the court and opposing counsel that you are representing yourself. Opposing counsel will be obligated to speak with you as a self-represented party.

    You can attempt to go through support enforcement in the Court where you were divorced. If they cannot help, I would absolutely bring her back to family court, especially if you have some solid proof she has in fact remarried. Feel free to contact me with any specific questions you may have. Regards, Thomas McCabe

    It really sounds like you need an attorney. If you can't afford one file a motion with the court to get into family relations and push forward on a motion for order regarding visitation

    You need to make sure the judge knows that there are outstanding motions which may need to be adjudicated prior to trial. Sometimes a judge may request that the motions be part of the trial testimony. If you have an attorney you should consult with them. If you do not, make sure you raise this issue prior to commencement of trial. Feel free to contact me for further guidance. Regards, Thomas McCabe
