    Heather’s Answer

    There are remedies in the law to serve your husband without knowing where he is. His failure to communicate and support you is a control issue being used to prevent you from moving forward with your life. You will need to hire an attorney for this process as it is complicated and technical.

  • Is it legal for my Husband's attorney to request me via Linked In?

    I have noticed repeatedly that my Husband's attorney keeps requesting me via Linked in. Is that legal? Why would he be doing this? Any recommendations?

    Heather’s Answer

    I would suggest that he is using someone else to run his social media and is not aware of this. Please tell your attorney and ask them to address this issue. If you are unrepresented please send a notice in writing to the attorney to withdraw this request.

  • Father won't let mom have daughter back when she is custodial parent.

    My stepdaughter had paternity and child support established a few months ago when her child turned 5. Dad had no contact earlier. She is listed as custodial parent and has raised child alone. She recently ran into hard times and asked him to care...

    Heather’s Answer

    As the primary custodial parent, she should call the police as well as show up at the school to bring her child home. If there is not visitation order or time sharing order by the Court, the police should enforce her right to bring the child home. Your stepdaughter needs to seek a time sharing agreement with the father and get a court order. It not acceptable to use the father for temporary care without a structured visitation schedule. Likewise, the father should not keep the minor child from the mother.
