    Jon’s Answer

    The answer to your question is controlled by the transportation clause included in your parenting plan. It is not likely that your fiancee is listed as a person to pick up and transport your child. In fact, you may have a "live in lover" clause that is common in this circuit that prevents you from having a non-relative overnight guest present with the child. The court certainly will not hold your ex in contempt if the order doesn' specifically provide that your fiancee is permitted to pick up the child. You might try seeing if your ex will allow a relative to pick up the child.

  • Can I get violated by my probation officer for not paying supervision fees?

    Iv done everything asked of me and payer all of my fines but now I have supervision fees. Do I have to pay them?

    Jon’s Answer

    Paying your probation supervision fees is a condition of probation. If you have a legitimate financial issue preventing you from paying you should talk with your probation officer. You don't want to be violated after you have paid your fines. A lawyer would be able to talk to the probation officer and/or judge for you.

    Jon’s Answer

    Your husband is considered to be the legal father of the children. You need to hire an attorney to make sure this issue is addressed in the divorce action. It may even be possible for the father of the children to intervene in the case to protect his rights. He should seek legal counsel also. The name and related issue could be addressed at together.

    Jon’s Answer

    You definately should hire a lawyer to assist you with this matter. Shoplifting carries jail time so you want to seek a lesser charge or pretrial diversion. Usually you would expect probation, a fine, community service, monthly probation supervision fees and a provision not to return to Walmart, You also have the option to transfer your case to state court.
