    Child care expenses are based on real expenses, so if your child will not be attending child care, he will get to eliminate that part of the payment. However, if you're the custodial parent and you believe your child will continue to need child care during your time, he does not get to unilaterally say "the child doesn't need child care so I'm not paying," If his income has materially changed since the previous support order, it may be grounds for a downward modification as well. If it has...

    If you're talking a safety plan as part of a juvenile proceeding, I'm not aware a judge can force a signature. That said, the threat of permanent termination of parental rights is looming in the background if the parent does not comply with the safety plan. That's a powerful motivator even if it technically doesn't force a signature. Mother should get an attorney to help her if she doesn't appreciate this risk.

    You likely will need a lawyer to review the documents to see exactly what the court restricted and on what basis. If you need permission to move out of state with your children from the court, you would need to start a separate proceeding by motion.

  4. My spouse and I are separating and looks like this will go to divorce. Is it best to have a lawyer or a mediator?

    A mediator will not represent either one of you, only try to help you both reach an agreement. A mediator will not advocate for your or your spouse's interests. A mediator will not appear in court for either of you. With all of that property on the line, and issues of spousal maintenance looming I strongly suggest you hire an attorney to help you in a divorce matter.

    No, by law her income may not be added to his for the purpose of a child support obligation for children that aren't your daughter's.

    Obviously you have rights to the property, as you're saying. However, yes you can turn over that right to them. Consult an estate planning and/or real estate attorney to determine how to do this as there may be tax implications and he or she will have to work with your spouse's estate.

    This is an estate planning question. Your son should get a will. This will allow him to specify who the executor will be (assuming they accept the appointment) and who will get his money. There will be no guesswork or uncertainty. A Minnesota estate planning attorney can help him draft a will to meet his needs very easily. www.majeskilaw.com

    She may be able to come after the value of them (not your sale price) if they're determined marital and you get rid of them in anticipation of a divorce. A judge can basically get the 1/2 marital value of that property from you in other ways. This is assuming it is marital property, which it may not be depending on the facts of your situation. In addition, any judge will see through what you're doing quite easily and be unimpressed by such an unethical move on your part if and when it...

    I agree with counsel. If you're worried about price you may want to interview several lawyers, but as counsel said, there's more to it than just the attorney's fees.
