    Your post doesn't pose a question. However, the creditor can still hold both you and/or the co-signor liable for any deficiency - the difference between what they are able to recover from the sale and the amount due.

    The Court is charged with entering custody/visitation orders that serve the best interests of the child. Of course that does mean that if you go back to court you need to be able to submit proof of why certain orders would be in the child's best interests. It appears by your post that there may be some procedural issues that need to be dealt with, and so I would highly recommend that you get an attorney to not only determine the best strategy moving forward, but also to look at the current...

    Typically, signing is effective as of the time of signing. It's not clear by your post what you are signing, so you may want to have an attorney look at it. If this is something that the other party prepared for you, and you are "waving rights of paternity" thinking you will be relieved from the obligation to pay child support you might find yourself liable for a large sum of retroactive child support years down the road.

    It is common for questions pertaining to the nation of England to appear in this forum for the City of England - a small town in Arkansas, U.S. If that is the case, you will need to ask your question in a U.K. forum inasmuch as laws and procedures can be quite different between the two jurisdictions. If you are in England, Arkansas, you can ask that your daughter be charged with assault or any other crime that the police/prosecutor believe the facts warrant and as part of those proceedings...

  5. Can a 16 year old female decide that she wants to be adopted by her step-father when her father has been paying child support?

    She cannot decide, but she would have to consent. Even if she consents, it is up to the Court to determine whether or not the biological father's consent is necessary and whether or not the adoption would be in her best interest. The consent of the biological father is not required if he has significantly failed, without justification, to communicate with the child to have OR pay support for a period of one year or more. That means in the situation you queried is whether or not there...

    First, she may want to check with attorneys. Many attorneys will draft a simple Will for a minimal sum, and it would be worth the peace of mind of knowing that it was done correctly. The problem with DITY legal kits is that they are buyer beware products, and if you knew enough about the law to evaluate the quality of the product, you wouldn't have needed to buy it. As to listing the names of the children, it is a question of what is required versus what is good practice. For example,...

    Mr. Hill gave great advice, but one aspect of your post that I am not certain of is whether or not the abuser was ever charged criminally. You noted that he has never gone to jail, but not whether he didn't go because he was never charged or because it was charged, tried and then acquitted or received a sentence that did not involve incarceration. However, even if he was acquitted of a criminal charge, you may still be able to bring a civil suit against him. Go ahead and use the lawyer...

    Rape is a Class Y felony, meaning that you are looking at the potential sentence of between 10 and 40 years, or life. While that does not mean you will get that sentence, it does mean that this is a very serious matter and you should not talk to ANYONE except your attorney. When you do talk to your attorney, tell them everything and be honest with them so they can do everything they can to help you.

    Mr. Hill gave good advice, but I am reading your post a little differently, probably just because I have seen too many instances in which people have thought a Power of Attorney has a sort of testamentary effect. A Power of Attorney does not take place of a will, dispense with probate, or give anyone any property rights. Also, not even a durable power of attorney will survive the grantor (in other words, it is no longer effective once the person giving the POA passes away). The Power of...

  10. Can i be forced to pay child support

    Answered 11 months ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    The law considers every parent to have a legal and moral obligation to support their minor children. There are guidelines that set presumed child support obligations based upon a parent's income, and while the Courts usually set child support in accordance with the "chart amount," you can present reasons why the court should deviate from that presumed amount -- keeping in mind that child support is for the best interests of the child and not the parent. The Court can also order that the...
