I agree with Attorney Sinclair. The court order must be followed until and unless there is a modification of that order. If circumstances have changed such that you think there is reason to modify the language, then seek a consultation with counsel to review the facts and circumstances. You want to determine if the language is modifiable and then if so, under what circumstances.
As for the IRS, they will defer to the state order. You need to follow the order until and unless it is modified.
Please seek a consultation with an adoption attorney. The first issue is whether your current husband wants to become legally responsible for your daughter. The second is whether the father is in agreement with terminating his rights. If this proceeds you will need to determine if the name change is a requirement of the proceeding or what you can do to keep her current name.
Both counsel are correct. The local policy in the county I practice in frequently is that the parties need to have separate residences at the time of the final hearing. Thus all documents can be signed and filed with the court while still together, but in a dissolution they must be in separate residences at the time of the final hearing.
Depends. The nature and use of the asset can make a non-marital marital. Also, are the funds used for purchase traceable. there may not be a good solid answer. However, a full consultation with an attorney in your area should provide guidance and give you some idea of how successful an argument may be. I strongly suggest that you seek counsel promptly.
The answer depends on what your current orders say regarding child support. The child support may or may not have been modified based on the time allocation. Please call an attorney in your area and seek a consultation. Take with you the shared parenting plan and any accompanying documents such as the child support worksheet. They will be able to look over the matter and advise you properly as well as possibly give guidance on how your local judge or magistrate handles such matters.
Counsel is correct. If the children have been adopted, then your rights and obligations as a parent are terminated. You have no better standing than any other person for getting visitation. If you really believe you need to have parenting time, then you need to consult with an attorney in your area. Be prepared to discuss your relationship with your kids, your involvement with them overtime,etc. Also, be prepared to find that you may not have any ability to get an award of parenting time.
No it is not. To obtain child support a action for support needs to be initiated in the court in the county where you and children reside. To my knowledge you cannot take such action after the child/ren are adults.
It certainly sounds as if the report is in father's favor. However at trial that can be torn down if the author never interviewed father. I strongly suggest that you seek an attorney in the area where the matter is pending. A consultation with a reputable attorney will provide some guidance on the weight the local court may put on an investigation especially in light of the "fact" father was not interviewed. These matters can get ugly fast. Do not delay in getting counsel. You should act...
Since it sounds as if your name was not on the deed or the loan, the lender is looking only to him as is the IRS. Whether your decree creates an obligation between you and your ex-husband is going to be determined by the terms of the decree.
Your decree should clearly state who is responsible for the house and the mortgage, how the equity is divided and the time frame to refinance. It may also contain a hold harmless clause.
I recommend that first, you not make any payment to your ex-...
When you filed a petition for dissolution you also filed a complete separation agreement. The court will require you to acknowledge the agreement, your signature, and your understanding and belief that the debt/asset allocation is fair and equitable. Usually the court does not go into specific questions on debts and assets. Having said that, I have had situations where the Judge will actually go through the separation agreement by section and get confirmation on all items. However, I have...
