    No, you would not be responsible. Your husband's debts are his debts. Indirectly you would be affected by his support because it takes money out of your household. You will not be responsible for this debt if he stops paying.

    Any person can ask for support if the child resides with them. Just because the judge terminated her receiving support once does not stop her from obtaing a support order if the child returns to her. Support ends when the 1. child is 18 and out of high school, or 2. when the child turns 19, whichever occurs first.

    Generally, if you do not have an employment contract, you are considered an "at will" employee. The employer can fire you for any reason that is not prohibited by law, ie. race, gender, nationality etc. So, if the employer requests that you take a drug test and you refuse, the employer can fire you. If you are a union employee than you should check with your union and review your rights with them.

    The school will have to file a law suit before they can garnish your wife's wages. If your wife files bankruptcy the debt will be able to be discharged and removed. The statute of limitations when the debt was incurred was 15 years, however the statute of limitations was shortened to 8 years. The school will need to file a law suite shortly in order to attempt to garnish wages. Additionally, reasonable you may have defenses to the claims, but they are not able to be determined at this time....

  6. Can my daughter's father get custody/visitation of our when he gets out of prison is he is a registered sex offender?

    The chances of him getting custody is very, very slim. However, if he would like to visit, the court, may grant him visitation. If you argue, the court would grant him supervised visits. The best thing you could do is attempt to have your fiance adopt the child. Adoption terminates the Father's rights for custody, visitation, child support...everything. You do not have to get the biological father's permission in certain circumstances. If you would like further info. call my office and...

  7. I want to add my fiance to my checking account but I have one issue that im worried about...child support arrears he has

    Yes, they can seize the money in the account. I would not add him to the account until all the arrears are caught-up. Even if he is caught-up on child support, it is ill-advised that you add him until you are sure that he is going to stick around and not clear the bank account out and take off.

  8. Apartment management office accepted a package for me but never notified me it was in there. Are they responsible to notify me?

    Answered 16 days ago.

    1. David Scott Bartos

    Yes, they have a duty to notify you. If they are accepting packages for you they create a bailment and keep the package in trust for you. If the item was time sensitive, they may be liable for any damages. If it was not time sensitive, the damages may be miniscule or nothing. To protect yourself and your packages, send a letter to the management asking them to not sign for any other packages.

    You are able to get joint custody if you and the mother can communicate and try to agree on what is best for your child. It does not appear that she will be communicative with you. I suggest that you start with getting an order for visitation and attempt to get as mush time as possible. The court proceeding may take awhile, which you would be able to build up a relationship with your daughter and eventually ask for custody if mother continues to deny visitation.

    Any attorney is qualified to review your order. However, for the best response and advice find an attorney that practices in domestic law/child support. This response does not constitute a representation agreement or any representation. Representation does not begin until a formal agreement is reached and retainer paid. Thank you.
