    David’s Answer

    Simply put... No! Sorry, but these girls should have come forward before the wedding and hopefully your daughter would've cancelled the wedding!

  • What are my options going forward?

    My ex girlfriend and I have broken up. I've moved out and have my own place. I have my son with me. I have his birth certificate and social security card. Just filed for custody today 12/3/13 court date is set for 12/02/14. I would like legal cust...

    David’s Answer

    Contact an attorney AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!! Plain and simple. If your son is in immediate danger, you might be advised to file an Emergency Petition. If it's a matter that needs to be addressed as soon as possible, but isn't technically an "emergency", you can file for an expedited hearing. An Expedited hearing is a hearing to determine if you should get an earlier court date. Be aware that at the Master's hearing, the Master does not have the authority to unilaterally give you physical or legal custody. Only a Judge can do that! Again, contact a local attorney to advise you the best option for you in Philadelphia. (FYI... Expedited Hearings are still over a month or two away!)

  • Can I a 20 year old personn go to jail for sharing nudity pictures with a 17 year old

    I sent nudity pictures to a 17 year old girl can her parents press charges on me? she also sent me pictures

    David’s Answer

    My advice. Do NOT admit this information online or to anyone! You've just indicated that you are in possession of child pornography and therefore, can be criminally charged. If found guilty (which is likely considering your admission, you may be subject to Megan's Law!)

    Go speak with an attorney right away.

    and like everyone else said, wait until she's 18!!!

  • A pfa was vilolated for contacting ex -husband trying to reason and end court cost to come to some agreement what are the penalt

    Ex husband supposed recorded conversation to come to some agreement it was none confrontation very brief.what are the consquence for trying to come to a peaceful resolution.Are there level to violating and fines ? even thou there was no threat .

    David’s Answer

    I agree with Michelle here! If there's an outstanding PFA, ANY contact, not through an attorney, or allowed by Court is a violation. The person violating the PFA could be sent to prison and/or forced to pay a fine for such violations.

    Contact a local attorney for more information.

    (also, be aware that in PA, a person is not allowed to record a conversation unless it is disclosed to and agreed to by the other party, so that, in and of itself is a crime!)

  • Can a court or force a father to allow a mother take a minor child out of the USA?

    My son is 10, She wants to take him to Jamaica.

    David’s Answer

    The answer to your question depends on what you're asking. If you are asking whether the child may be taken out of the US for vacation, the simple answer is "it depends." Jamaica is not a member to the Hague Convention and therefore, does not have to respond to the US if there is an issue with child abduction. This is a very tricky area as Courts do not want to put their constituents in a position that could result in an abduction. I recommend that you speak with and hire an attorney here in Philadelphia who will fight for your rights to protect the relationship with you and your child.

    If the question revolves around moving to Jamaica, the Courts must follow the law regarding relocation. Again, please consult an attorney.

    I would be pleased to speak with you regarding your situation.

  • I live in PA and have a child with my exhusband. We have no written arrangement for custody or visitation, can I move?

    My parents, whom I live with, might move to CA. If so, I cannot afford to stay here so my child and I would be moving with them. Our child has been living with me full time since separating two years ago and I do have a child support order but my ...

    David’s Answer

    As Attorney Kalinoski stated, you should file a Complaint for Primary Custody and follow the law regarding relocation. If your ex husband agrees to the custody order and relocation, an Order can be entered by agreement. However, if he decides to fight the relocation, you will be required to attend a hearing and present your position before a Judge.

    Feel free to contact me at 267-882-2734 and I can answer any other question that you may have in regards to your matter.

  • What are my husbands finacial obligations if he leaves me and my 6yr old. I dont work. no talk of divorce yet he just left.

    Been married 9yrs, we own our home in both our names. I have no income coming in to support us.

    David’s Answer

    I am not licensed in your state, but it sounds like you might want to go speak with an attorney right away. Depending on the laws in your state, you may not need to file divorce paperwork in order to attempt to collect spousal support or alimony pendente lite (if they are available in TX). In addition, you may be able to collect child support without filing for custody or divorce as the child is in your current custody.

    Either way, it is not advisable to just wait around and see what happens. Be proactive and do what it takes to support you and your child.

    Again, contact an attorney RIGHT AWAY to ascertain all of your rights.

  • Can i get in trouble for this.... and what would happen?

    myself,my child and my boyfriend live in section 8 housing. my boyfriends brother and my boyfriend went behind my back to put car insurance on a car for my boyfriends brother who lives in new york i just found out and dont know what to do about it

    David’s Answer

    I agree that there isn't enough information. However, it sounds as though there is now car insurance on your boyfriend's brother's car while the car is located in New York. If your boyfriend's brother lives in NY and the car is insured as per Lebanon rates, then your boyfriend and brother are committing insurance fraud. You must contact your insurance carrier and advise that this car is located where it is located.

    Please note that since you have notice about this, you may be liable for the fraud as well.

    Mother and father seperated. Both live with me. One is 16 and lived with me for the last 9 years, the other is 10 and has lived with me for the last 5 years. Mother has custody and supports somewhat. My wife and I are strickly on social security a...

    David’s Answer

    I am not licensed in Virginia and I suggest that you speak to an attorney licensed in your state. However, generally, the person who has custody of the child/children are the ones who must file for support with the Courts. I suggest that your daughter file for support. It sounds like she should file.

    However, depending on the law in your state, you may have the right to file for custody of the children. If you would be given custody, you can file for support against both mom and dad.

    Again, please contact an attorney in your state who would be able to provide you with a more specific response.
