    John is correct...the other side will simply attach a transcript of a hearing. The Settlement, once entered in open Court, is binding--the Court approved it and entered it on the docket...now, the delay is simply the details of getting a copy drafted and issued by the Court. Good Luck.

    Look--you need to hire North Carolina Counsel and seek a reduction to a lesser included offense. Courts tend to be willing to "deal down" a first offense DUI with a low BAC read (a 0.11 is a lower read in most jurisdictions) such as yours to a lower offense--especially since you are in the Military--but you can't do this yourself. A lesser included offense will make life easier. Good Luck, and thanks for your service.

    For starters-- Hire Counsel. You need aggressive representation. The assets spent are likely gone, but you have the right to argue that they were spent frivolously, in anticipation of the divorce. In doing so, you may be able to get the Court to offset the losses caused by his financial misconduct as against the assets in your pensions. Discuss that and other strategic options with Counsel. Good Luck.

    The potential to enter into a bigamous marriage creates a legal problem--violation of US Marriage laws create the potential for criminal prosecution for bigamy. A conviction would likely impair his immigration status if he is shy of full citizenship---so tread carefully and not without competent legal counsel. Good Luck.

    No. The Judge will look to see if the child will remain in your custody or not-- because the nrelocation constitutes a change in circumstances...but generally, with two jobs and better economic opportunities, barring some other factors as set out under 3109.04, a change in custody is unlikely. There are a host of constitutional precidenrts as well, dealing with the Commerce Clause, which prevents states from preventing people from engaging in interstate commerce, including relocating from one...

    Try calling your local Bar Association for a low cost referral, or in the alternative, perhaps one of the local law schools have a clinic. In a situation like this, where many dollars are at stake, it is my belief that the alimony determination in a trial action, particularly in jurisdictions such as yours where alimony tends to be higher, is extremely important. Remember also that you have other options in order to secure legal counsel. Perhaps you need to sign up for credit card so that you...

  7. Can someone go to jail directly following arraignment?

    Unless the criminal charges are exceptionally serious, the only thing that would place you in jail following arraignment would be if there was an outstanding bench warrant for your arrest or if you are unable to post bond. I would suggest that you prepare by contacting a bill bondsmen, and possibly if you are asking for public defender to be appointed, contact the Office of the Public Defender in your jurisdiction so that you can meet with them at their Office, prior to appearing in Court.

    Lee is correct. He has not established Paternity, has not filed any action for custody, nor has he any rights as to the child prior to doing so. Go ahead and move. If you are privately insured and no longer receive any Government benefits, the state can not force you to establish paternity to collect the money that He, as Father, owes them. And even if you establish Paternity--is he going to do anything? Stop Talking to him-- you are creating drama and increasing the risk to your child. If...

    He may be, particularly if your Attorney argues thatn the debts are marital debts which were acquired prior to the filing of the divorce. This is how you get things in a divorce without having to establish a contractual duty to prove whose debt a thing is--as debts acquired during the marriage by either party are the joint responsibility of both. Good Luck.

  10. My wife filed for divorce she has our house on a separate property declaration and furniture on community, can she do this?

    I agree with Michael. The other side may list it as separate property, but there has, as yet, been no judicial determination by the Court--so object to the listing by listing it on your responsive pleadings as marital. Go discuss this with your attorney--and good luck.
