    Cassandra’s Answer

    You can change your will at anytime, even during the pendency of a divorce. If you are concerned about who will be trustee and guardian of your funds when you pass, you should address that problem now

    I practice in NJ, but I suppose the rules are similar. In NJ you would file a Motion to Enforce Litigant's Rights. If she works, you can have the court garnish her wages.

    Cassandra’s Answer

    Most attorneys hire a firm to complete the QDRO. These firms usually know exactly what the requirements of every pension plan. In general, once the QDRO is completed by the actuarial firm, it is sent to the firm to approve the format. If the firm approves, then the QDRO is submitted to the court for signature and returned to the employer for action.

    I don;t know what difficulties your attorney has encourtered. Ask him?

    You must find shelter. If you want to keep your children, you must be able to put a roof over their heads. Call every relative that you know to see if someone will help you out. I assume that you have a job. Make sure that your children remain in school. Get a lawyer to help you work through all of the issues, one by one.

  • I need to file a counter claim in a divorce and respond to the complaint. my ex has been treating me very bad and wants to take

    my child away from me. he has residential custody and wants to take her over sees and i dont know when i will get her back or if he will bring her back.

    Cassandra’s Answer

    Your issue is very complex. You are in the middle of a divorce, and there is a child. Both parents want custody. For one of you, child support will be an issue. Visitation is at issue. These issues are to complicated to answer in an e-mail. You need to find an attorney right away because you only have 35 days to answer the complaint and file your counterclaim. The clock starts to run on the day that you were served with the complaint.

    Don't wait. Consult a lawyer!

  • Statue of limitations violation of probation in nj .

    if you get pick up for a bench warrant will the violation of probation come up to.and if not is that mean the statue ran out

    Cassandra’s Answer

    If you get picked up on a warrant, there is a good chance that the warrant will have issued because you violated probation. Once you are picked up, your entire criminal history will be researched before a bail is set. Therefore, it is highly likely that the VOP will surface. You might be well served to get a lawyer and surrender. By doing this, you might be able to structure the terms of your continued release on bail.

  • How do i fill in for the pti program?? or am i even eligible??

    my friend has a aggravted assault charge 4 count with a deadly weapon he did not mean to do it he was scared after he hit people and fled the scene because he felt life threaten by people whom were jumping him.....

    Cassandra’s Answer

    Your friend is in a lot of trouble. You need a lawyer to explain the ramifications of all of the issues involve. While I do not have all of the facts, it is highly unlikely that your friend will be eligible for pretrial intervention. This is a program designed to give first offenders of relatively minor offenses a second chance. Assault with a deadly weapon, which I am assuming was a car, is a serious crime. Leaving the scene of an accident carries several penalties which may not be totally obvious and which require far more explanation that a website can provide. Get your friend a lawyer.

  • What is the most time a person can get

    alluding and resisting arrest and gun charge in two counties was not driving when happened

    Cassandra’s Answer

    You have not provided enough information and the answer to the question depends on how the prosecutor charges the crime. However, weapons offenses carry a mandatory parole ineligibility time. Assuming that this is not your first offense, if convicted or if you plead guilty, you are facing a minimum of three years. The Graves Act states that you the parole ineligibility is 1/3 to 1/2 of the term imposed, but not less than three years.
