Father is the pothead. Lives out of state. He is in pa, me and baby are in va. He has not given any child support. He has only come down once since birth. Baby is almost 3 months old.
Did he file requesting visitation or custody? Based on the age of the child and your comments, I am assuming the child resides with you and you are the primary custodial parent. So the real issue is what visitation would the father have. The Court will likely give him visitation but it might not be supervised. Drug use alone will not demand supervised visitation. A better argument would be that he is absent as a father and has no relationship and therefore initially visitation would need to be on a limited basis (no overnights). Unless he demonstrates some harm to the child, the court might not demand supervisionSee question
My ex husband is being stationed to the west coast. He gets weekend visitations and the month of July in the summer with our child. Since he is moving to the west coast because of the military, he asked that we split the cost of a plane ticket for...
what does your court order say about transportation? Many times the Courts will rule on how the transportation costs shall be carried out, sometimes they don't. Absent any such language, there is no mandate for you to pay half of the plane tickets. Many times the Court will order that if a parent relocate it is there responsibility for the air fare for their visitation. I think we need to sit down and look at your current order to see what are your obligations. Many times relocations will cause a motion to amend to be filed and realistically this may be needed because weekend visit will definitely not be working out anymore.See question
Husband and wife are on the deed of a home, but the mortgage loan is only in the husband's name. Husband files chapter 7 when the house goes into default, leaves the premises and separates from the wife. The wife files chapter 13 to stop the forec...
The House will be considered marital in nature so he will have an interest in the equity in the home. So the real question here is, does your house have any equity? I suggest you sit down with a local attorney like myself that handles both divorce and bankruptcy to see what your interests are and you might want to protect them.See question
Me and my spouse separated Sep 1st and on that same day we entered into a separation agreement that we drafted up ourselves that stated that: On that day we both intended to separate with no reconciliation and intent to divorce unco...
I would want to read the exact wording of the agreement. If it says that neither is 'seeking spousal support at this time' is one thing but if it says the parties "WAIVE " spousal that that is entire different. If your spouse WAIVED spousal support then no court is going to go back and award it to her unless she proves you used duress in getting her to agree.
I suggest bringing you agreement to a local attorney like myself to look it over and possibly consider assisting you with your divorce.See question
married 30 years ,divorced ,husband worked for government and only had 24 credits in social security don't have anything on divorce order. he remarried new wife got every thing
I would have to see a copy of your final decree of divorce to be able to properly answer this question, but if you were not awarded anything then you may not be entitled to anything. A final decree is a very powerful document. If you did not request spousal support, even though you were married a very long time, you will not receive it. If you did not take steps to protect your portion of any retirements, then you likely have lost those too. Please consider meeting with an attorney as soon as possible to review your final decree and see what might be done.See question
Hi I was hoping to get some advice or information regarding the nature of a reckless driving charge in the state of Virginia. I read that reckless driving is a much more excessively serious offense in Virginia than other states and has the possibi...
A charge of Reckless Driving is a class one misdemeanor that can carry up to 12 months in jail and up to a $2500 fine.. But realistically I do not believe in your situation jail time or a large fine is likely. Accidents do happen and I would agree that improper driving is more fitting to your crime. I think it wise that you acquire a copy of your driving history and meet with an attorney to retain them to assist you with this charge.See question
She is extremely jealous even though we been together for 34 years. We own a house with mortgage.
Separation by itself is not abandonment; however, I would suggest that you consider meeting with an attorney to discuss a possible separation agreement. The marriage may be over but you have a house that must be dealt with either by selling or refinancing. You may also have children, spousal support issues, retirements to be divided. I always suggest attempting to negotiate a settlement.
In addition, by presenting her with a proposal demonstrates that you do not desire to abandon her rather you want to discuss separating and a mere separation by mutually consent is not abandonment or desertion.See question
We have filed divorce papers with the court and the papers have been returned as incomplete and stating we need a deposition. We did not use an attorney to complete or file our papers, we took them online. Can we go to any attorney and have them p...
An attorney can absolutely step into your existing case and help you finish it up. Now, typically when I do this for a client there seems to always be corrections needed to the paperwork they filed. So I suggest you meet with an attorney, like myself, that practices in York County to help you wrap your case up.See question
Since we have been married, we have purchased a house which he is the only one on the deed. I only work part-time and college full time and him full time a full time job. What would I get in a divorce.
It is hard to say "what you would get in divorce" without a great deal more information. Based on what you have stated, you both acquired a home together so that would be marital and this means that you would divide any Equity that may exist. In today's economy that might not be much.
You also refer to you working and being a college student. I think what you are trying to ask if you would be entitled to spousal support and I am sorry to say there is simply not enough information here to determine that. We would need to look at some hard numbers of your and his income and even then the Court may determine what "need" you may or may not have. I would need a much more in depth consultation with you to give you a better answer here.
There is so much else you need to consider too. How long were you guys together? Has either of you vacated the home? If so when? Do you have an debts together? do you hard evidence of any adultery?
I really suggest you scheduled an appointment to meet with an attorney to discuss this as soon as possible.See question
My husband stated that he no longer wants to be married to me. The reason being that I've said hurtful & disrespectful things to him in the past. He said that the way I've spoken to him & the things I've said showed him that I couldn't possible l...
Well, while I do applaud your desire to working things out, if he wants a divorce and he is now cheating on you, it sounds like the divorce is inevitable. So the initial question is, has either one of you moved out or in some way established yourselves as separate and apart. This is the first step. Virginia requires a period of separation prior to granting a final decree of divorce. This separation period is for one year or for 6 months (if you have no kids and have a property agreement).
Now having said that, let's not forget that you guys are still married and his relationship with another person may constitute adultery (if you can prove it). Adultery is one ground that if proven, does not required a separation period. You could, in theory, file now. However, my best advice to you is to sit down with an attorney to begin negotiating a separation agreement.See question
