  • What is the easiest way to file for divorce in New York state? Where do i go for free help with other related divorce questions?

    I am legally separated from my husband, we have 3 children. We have gone to court for custody and child support. I have a few questions about how to go about filing for divorce.

    Brian’s Answer

    Assuming your divorce is uncontested and you don't share any assets with your spouse, then you can probably handle this matter on your own. Documents can be obtained on the Court's website. Alternatively, you can seek advice or help from a legal assistance office or organization.

  • What are my options for getting a divorce? Can I use a regular divorce lawyer?

    I got married to my husband in Peru. I brought him to the USA on a marriage visa. He was only here a few months before we decided the marriage will not work. He has moved out of my house as of October 2015. Now, he is talking about going back to P...

    Brian’s Answer

    Yes, you will use a divorce attorney for this matter. Your husband may want to speak to an immigration attorney if he is particularly worried.

    I suggest getting the ball rolling on the divorce before he goes back to Peru.

  • Can I get an annulment of my 1 month old marriage?

    I cheated on my then fiancé a while back and she found inappropriate conversation in my phone. While on the honeymoon I found nude pictures and innapporriate text in her phone to an ex. She also has access to my phone records i don't know how is t...

    Brian’s Answer

    You can not get an annulment based on infidelity. Annulments are not granted on short marriages.

    You will have to file for divorce. Assuming both parties agree to it, the case shouldn't be too expensive or require a big chunk of time.

  • If I was given a "promise ring", is it considered a gift? Or would I have to return it if we do not get engaged?

    I was given a promise ring over the holidays from a man I recently started dating. He gave me the ring and said "this is a symbol of my promise to you of where my heart is and that I hope this relationship leads to marriage"

    Brian’s Answer

    It seems like the ring would be considered a gift. You would keep it if you and your partner were to break up.

    Brian’s Answer

    Just because the place of employment of a Judge's employment is the same as one of the parties of a case, doesn't mean that there is bias. Doesn't seem like there anything you can do.

  • Can I be forced to pay her child support?

    I was conned out of my life savings by a woman who is a resident of the Bahamas. She has now opened a case for child support against me in NC by using a fake U.S. address.

    Brian’s Answer

    If you are the father of the child, then yes. You will have to pay child support.

    If you question whether or not the child is biologically yours, then request a DNA test/order of paternity during a court appearance.

    If there is no child, and this woman is just trying to get more of your money, then she isn't very smart and you have nothing to worry about.

    Speak to a local family court attorney if one of the first two scenarios applies to you.

    Brian’s Answer

    Start separating your assets. All of your financial information should be in your name only. If you are unable to separate joint accounts, stop using them. It is best if you retain a lawyer before filing. You may need to wait until you are a resident of GA.

    Brian’s Answer

    Given the fact that you two have children and assets, you really need to retain an experienced divorce attorney to handle this for you. There is no way of knowing what will happen after the case is filed, even if your wife claims she agrees to your terms. People change their minds all the time.
