    Anthony’s Answer

    The short answer is yes. You can get a divorce based upon the irretrievable breakdown of your marriage, which only requires you to submit an affidavit stating such. But it is not that simple. You should consult with an experience divorce attorney who practices in Warren County and is familiar with local practice.

  • Do i have any legal right to my husbands comp settlement

    he abandoned me with all the bills

    Anthony’s Answer

    To the extent that a workers compensation settlement is a personal injury award, the answer is that you have no right to it since it is his separate property. You should consult with an attorney about this because you still may have a right to temporary maintenance or spousal support.

  • Once I get seperated legally how much child support am I responsible for? Second can I purchase a home once seperated, will my

    Soon to be ex-spouse be able to go after part of that house. Again we will be legally seperated.

    Anthony’s Answer

    Your child support will depend on your income and the number of children you have. As for buying a house, it will depend on the language of your agreement. You really need to speak to an attorney about these questions.

    Anthony’s Answer

    His child support should not affected by how much money you make. If his income has gone up significantly since his support obligation was calculated he may have some exposure because of that issue.

    You should consult with an experienced local attorney who concentrates in family law.

    As with all legal matters, on-line advice is no substitute for an in-person attorney consultation. An experienced local attorney will be familiar with the local customs and practices in the county in which your case will be heard in court.

    Anthony’s Answer

    "Denied without prejudice" means that a request is denied at that moment but the asking party may ask again in the future.
    "Denied with prejudice" means that the request is denied and the asking party may not ask again for the same thing.
    Sounds like you need an attorney to look at the papers that your spouses lawyer prepared to make sure that they accurately reflect what the Judge ordered.

  • Will a lender accept my divorce decree and settlement stipulation so my ex can get approved for a mortgage loan?

    It states he has no monetary obligation to make the monthly payments. We understand his credit may not be on good standing but will those documents help him? Refinance is not an option now unfortunately.

    Anthony’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    Depends on the lender. Depends on his credit too. If his credit is poor, a lender may be less likely to accept your divorce since the overall risk may be too much.

  • Can I be charged?

    I went to pick up my kids from my ex's house. I don't have a licence and she knows that. So she video taped me driving and turned me in. Cops came, arrested me and now I have court. Do you think thecharges will stick or will it get ddismissed? ...

    Anthony’s Answer

    Her testimony alone will be proof enough to have you convicted. A video is even better evidence. You think that a video is not concrete evidence but a jude will.
    Besides the criminal charge you also can expect an even worse time in Family Court. You visitation could be suspended or you could be required to have supervised visitation.
    If you don't have a license you have no business driving and absolutely no business driving with your kids in the car.
    If I seem too blunt, I am sorry, but I expect that a judge is going to be to take a very dim view of you driving without a license to pick up your kids. Do yourself a favor and get you license back.

    Anthony’s Answer

    That is a jurisdictional question that is covered by the Uniform Interstate Child Custody Jurisdiction & Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). Six months is the threshold for a home state, but your case does not fit into that category. You should consult with a Texas attorney immediately about filing a petition in Texas and then having Texas assume jurisdiction.
