  • Can i leave my house that my daughter and son-in-law live in to her only,

    i want the house to stay in our family after a divorce

    Lisa’s Answer

    I would recommend speaking to an attorney in your area. If it were my daughter, I would want to make sure she was protected in the event of a divorce. You don't ever expect that to happen but nothing is predictable. So yes, you can give it to her only, but the husband may try and lay some claim to it in the event of a divorce. A trust might provide better protection for your daughter.

    If he drafted the document, he will likely want to make sure it is filed. I'm sure your ex wife's attorney will be willing to address those issues with the drafting of the document and the court date. Have you talked to that attorney about that?

    This probably should be posted on the criminal defense section. He really needs to obtain a good criminal defense attorney in his state and see if this charge can't get reduced.

  • Seeking custody of 15 and 5 yr old what do I do?

    The children live with my ex spouse and I see them every other weekend. I know the 15 yr old will be able to chose. What do I do? Do I tell an attorney that I want custody of both of them or what? Will I just file for the 5 yr old or what?

    Lisa’s Answer

    You really need to retain an attorney in your state for this matter. Normally one should have a change of circumstances to modify custody. But again, you really need to retain a lawyer in your state.
