    You stated that you believe she had an abortion, but then that she is stating she is pregnant. Which one is it? I assume you mean she had the abortion and then he slept with her after that. First, if a baby is born he needs to have DNA testing to find out if he is the father. If he is, she can file for child support and will receive child support. Second, if she keeps threatening you and your family, you need to go to the police. Third, your husband cannot voluntarily terminate his...

    You can obtain a subpoena at the county courthouse that your custody matter is filed at and you then must provide the subpoena to your ex and he is allowed to try to prevent the documents from being turned over. If he does not object, you can then serve the subpoena on the correct person at the phone company. I would first make sure that you are able to obtain the actual text from the text messages prior to going through the trouble of obtaining an subpoena. Further, the court will not...

  3. Does my husband , who I am separated from , have to pay me alimony ?

    Courts look at a number of factors when determining alimony, one of which is the length of the marriage. Considering you only lived together as a married couple for eight months, it is highly doubtful that you would receive alimony. However, you can file for child support and, potentially, spousal support. Spousal support will also be reduced considering your marriage and the length of time you lived together was less that two years. Spousal support is for during a period of separation and...

    A lot of this depends on what you are planning on doing and when. Of course eventually you will have to file a divorce complaint, however, you may need to do more on the custody part of it prior to leaving the house. If you are planning on relocating a distance away, you will need the approval of your husband or a court order to do so with your son. If you are planning on staying close by, you can inform him where you are moving to. He will have a right to see his son and know where he is...

  6. Just prior to my Mother's death, my brothers went into her home and removed most of the valuables and all the cash $6500.00

    Speak with whoever is the executor of the Will. If it is you, you can refuse to honor the memorandum. If it is one of the other siblings and they are planning on honoring the memorandum, then you will need to dispute the distribution of the estate. You can also potentially get an order requiring that your brother return all items he removed to the executor. I would speak with an experienced attorney about this matter as soon as possible.

    I am sorry for your loss so suddenly. At this point, I would advise you to speak with an attorney in your area. There are specific notices and advertisement requirements that must be followed in Pennsylvania to put creditors on notice that she has passed away. There are also notices that you must send to any heirs she may have had, whether or not they take under the will. And if there are creditors out there that are not going to be paid, you must notify them of her passing and they will...

    Absolutely. You should have had an attorney from the beginning to advise you about grandparents rights in Pennsylvania in the first place. I would not go any further without an attorney.

    As a previous answer stated, there is no legal separation in PA. Also, a divorce can be filed without any type of separation occurring. A no-fault consent divorce has a mandatory 90 day waiting period AFTER the Defendant is served with the divorce complaint. After this 90 days, the divorce can be finalized assuming your assets and debts have been sufficiently divided and both of you agree. It is only if the two of you do not agree to the divorce do you have to wait to years. At that point,...

    You may be able to obtain emergency custody of the kids if you can show the court what is going on in the home. Speak to a family law attorney in your area to see if this is possible. Do this as soon as possible to maintain the emergency status.
