We don't have anything in our names together, not even the house. We've been married on paper for 20 years. We don't have any children or assets together.
Generally, because of the downturn in the economy over the past 5-8 years, the judges in this area are more likely to find the separation exists. In addition, if you both agree that you have been separated, it poses less of a problem.
More globally, some of the factors to show separated by living in the same household is a "roommate" type of test. You would want to show that you do not attend family functions together, you don't eat together, you don't do laundry for each other, you present yourself as separated to friends and family, you split the bills (or consider support to be in the nature of spousal support), your bank accounts are separate, etc.See question
Has been separated for over 25 years , would like to get married again. How would I be able to do it!
If you know where your estranged spouse is, it's a relatively simple process. Even if you don't know where he/she is, you can get service through publication. You may also want to check to see if they already received a divorce from you by checking with Vital Statistics with the Virginia Department of Health.
Contact Legal Aid in Roanoke and they should be able to help you get started. Good luck!See question
My friend was pulled & got 5th offense on Tues
I agree with Mr. Esten. In addition, if your friend has been deemed a habitual offender, the length of jail time is significantly longer.See question
I have completed all my drug test , community service, and substance abuse classes.
Typically, yes. However, you need to contact the attorney you had on the original matter to find out what you need to do procedurally. We cannot answer this for you here as your matter is still before the Court.See question
I got physical joint custody of my 13 year old brother last August (2014). His dad ,whom is not my dad, has recently fallen are hard times with drugs and financial situation. He didn't want to live there anymore so he was staying at our grandpa's ...
Generally, a parent must be deemed to be unfit for a Court to give custody to a non-parent. However, there are a lot of facts in this case that would tend to show that your home is the best place for him and that he should not be in a home with convicted sex offender (supposed from your facts). The fact that a consent order was reached also goes to your favor, though the length of time has been short and could hurt your position. In addition, your brother is of the age where Courts will take more interest in knowing what he desires. If he is of sufficient maturity, it may go a long way in keeping him with you.
You are to be praised for stepping up to care for your brother. Do see a lawyer as this case is complex and you really would want to have an attorney involved.See question
that in the death of my mother, the house is to be sold and monies divided between me and my siblings. We all, including my mother, wish to keep the house in the family and not sell. Is that possible ?
Certainly. You will need to have a lawyer review your grandmother's will to make certain, but it sounds like there was a life estate granted to your mother. The request that it be sold likely is not binding beyond that unless the remainder interest is held in trust. A transfer of the property to the three of you upon your mother's death could be seen as being a sale to the three of you. Or, one of you could purchase the full interest or interest from one of the others. Any number of things can happen and any number of things could be done to transfer the property even if it is held in trust.
Again, take the will to a lawyer to determine the specifics of how best to make it happen. Good luck!See question
hes not helping me at alll n not show any interest in the baby. I currently found out he has another girl n a that girl have a baby... He doesnt even ask if i need something for the baby n if hes ok nothing
It is relatively simple to get the process started on your own. You will need to go to the Clerk's office for the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court in the county in which you reside. They will help you to fill out the required paperwork. For support, you may ask that it be paid through DCSE. For visitation and custody, keep in mind that it can be complex, but if he does not object or does not appear, then you will pretty much get whatever you want within reason. The baby does not have to have his last name. Finally, he will have the right to request a paternity test to verify paternity before other matters are decided.See question
I understand no-fault, but in this case I can't proceed with a divorce when God does not give me permission to do so. There is no adultrey. I don't anticipate anything else that I would "contest", but what happens or what do I do legally when I r...
You do not have to sign-off on the papers. You may maintain your beliefs, but the divorce will still take place based upon your spouse's pleadings. This may help you to reconcile your beliefs with what will occur.See question
I'm interested in buying a used car but the person that showed me the car is only 16, is it legal to close a deal with him?
It is legal, but it's not smart. Is he the only titled owner of the vehicle or is there a co-owner that will also sign? You could potentially enter into a contract with his parent as a co-signer to protect yourself.See question
Property management claims Act of God, but two tree professions claim the tree was leaning by one and had a very weak rooting system leaving no alternative but to fall. I understand that it takes some time for a tree to decay and timber over. The ...
Your question is not really clear, since it appears you were warned, but you say, "not this time." If we assume that the other warnings were for different trees, you would have to show that they knew this specific tree was in danger of falling. If it was a weak root system, something like that is not apparent to someone simply viewing the tree. Many trees also "lean" so that would not necessarily indicate a tree may fail. The property management would have had to have been on notice prior to the fall that it was a danger.
If there was no prior notice, then yes, it is an Act of God. You will have to show that the property management knew and/or had been warned that this specific tree was a danger and that it should have been removed prior to it falling.See question
