    Unfortunately, this will likely delay, and probably already has, the disbursement of settlement proceeds. Your new lawyer is going to want to make sure that he extinguishes the lien claim of the old lawyer before distributing proceeds. Additionally, both the old lawyer and the new lawyer are probably listed as payees on the settlement check, making it impossible to properly negotiate the check without the old lawyer endorsing the check. The old lawyer is only going to endorse the check if he...

    You should share the evidence you have with your attorney. Child support is always modifiable (subject to certain limitations) so if the evidence proves what you think it proves, you may be entitled to an increase. Unfortunately, not many people are prosecuted for perjury, but the judge handling the child support matter could certainly hold him in contempt. Most attorney's would feel a little uncomfortable being asked to get help. It is important that you have confidence in your counsel....

  4. I never changed my social security card, or drivers license, is my marriage legal?

    Yes, your marriage is still legal. Your marriage is not void just because you didn't change your driver's license or SS card. If there are no children, and the wife is not pregnant, you have to have lived separate and apart (which can be in the same house, but without sexual cohabitation) for 60 days.

    There is no law requiring that the 6 year old be given his own room. The situation may be relevant as one (1) factor to consider in determining whether custody and/or visitation should be modified. I suggest you speak more thoroughly with an attorney to address the larger issue about custody and/or visitation.

    I agree with the other answers. You should investigate and attempt to figure out who the father is. You owe it to your child. Just be honest. If you don't know, and cant find out, then you don't know. Good luck.

    The father (sadly) may choose not to visit or have any contact or communication with his child, but he cannot unilaterally end his obligation to support his child (pay child support). Good luck.

    Yes, if he was ordered to get your name released as an obligor on the loan (typically by refinancing), you can take him back to court and ask that he be held in contempt for failing to comply with the courts order. The court will also likely order him to pay the attorney's fees you incur in taking him back to court. You could also file the motion yourself.

    It sounds like the person cut timber on someone else's property, but you should post this for a Wisconsin lawyer to answer.

    It is not clear what you mean by "work in my favor." The issue the court will determine in ruling upon custody is what is in the best interest of the children. If you could prove that your ex filed a false EPO, that would be significant evidence for the court to consider in determining which parent would be best to have custody of the children. You would be best served to consult with a local lawyer who specializes in family law matters. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ARE NOT MY CLIENT, I AM NOT YOUR...
