  • I owned my home before i married. i put my husband's name on the house is that now community property in our divorce

    I owned a home before I married. I put it also in my husband's name after we married. how does this work in a divorce is it community property now to split

    Tyler’s Answer

    The short answer is maybe. Just because both names are on it does not ALWAYS mean that it is community property subject to division during divorce. Bottom line you should meet with an experienced family law attorney to discuss the specific details and get more information about the nature of the asset.
    Good Luck!

  • Can my sons biological father who is not on the birth certificate get full legal custody if he has only met my son one time?

    My sons biological father abandoned me when i was pregnant with my now 18 month old son. he has filed for full legal custody and wants me to pay child support. can he get my son? even though my son dont know who he is?

    Tyler’s Answer

    It sounds like there is no custody order in place and this is an initial action.
    You need to get an attorney. The short answer is yes, especially if you do not have an experienced family law attorney on your side, the father can get full custody and you could have to pay child support.

  • In the state of Idaho, married for 5 years, am I entitled to ?

    husband had a home with a mortgage, we lived together in that home 14 months and married 5 years . Am I entitled to any value of the house? Car purchased with loan in both our names, husband wants to keep the car, and after divorce, take my name...

    Tyler’s Answer

    Your question is too vague to allow a specific response.

    Generally speaking Idaho is a community property state which means things acquired during the marriage are generally community property. However, it is more complex than that and it sounds like you might have a seperate property issue related to the house; and a possible reimbursement claim back to the community.

    It's true that who ever takes the car loan should get that debt into their name only but remember there could be equity in the car that needs to be addressed.

    Bottom line you are dealing with major property issues and need to talk to an attorney.

    You should take the issue you are having back to the attorney that initially handled your criminal case. Simply put, it is up to the probation department to determine who your PO is, your best option will likely be to go back to the judge in your case and request that you and your husband be allowed to live together; no matter what probation's position is on it.

    You need to get the matter before the Judge in your custody case and seek an order from the Judge allowing you to go. Be specific in the motion with regard to where you are going why you are going why the children need to go, when you will leave and be back, etc, etc.

  • Do my fiancés restitution and court fee become my financial responsibility after marriage?

    We live in Idaho and these fees were acquired back in 2009.

    Tyler’s Answer

    This is a tricky question because of the overlay between community property and separate property as well as how the criminal amounts can be enforced. The basic rule in Idaho is that anything, including debt, that he brings into the marriage is going to be considered separate and thus his responsibility; however, the restitution amount in particular can be converted to a civil judgment, and then it is possible that the civil judgment could be enforced through community property which would include garnishment of anything you earn. Additionally, the fines can be turned over to collections and again the judgement could be garnished if a judgment is obtained after a lawsuit.

    It would be advisable to have these amounts paid before you are married if you are concerned about it.

    I would set up an appointment to talk to an attorney that deals in this area to talk about the specifics.

    Good Luck!

  • My ex and I share joint legal and physical custody. I'm wanting to relocate to a different town in same state?

    He will not agree with me moving? What do I do? The move is less then 100 miles away.

    Tyler’s Answer

    You need to contact an experienced family law attorney in your area to discuss your options. It depends on several factors that only an attorney experienced in this field can address. When checking with an attorney make sure they have handled relocation cases in the past as these cases created unique challenges.
    Ultimately it is up to the Judge and not your ex what happens.

  • What is Defendants First set of Interrogatories?

    I filed a child custody modification against my ex husband. The repository online says that he has filed "Defendants First set Of Interrogatories and request for production of documents". Is this something scary or hard to do on my own against ...

    Tyler’s Answer

    What your ex has filed is discovery. Which are formal questions that you need to answer in writing and verify as true (you should be getting them in the mail). He is also asking for you to produce certain documents. While it is possible to SOMETIMES handle these questions on your own, it is ALWAYS advisable to retain an attorney when you are dealing with such an important matter as custody of you child. I would advise that you contact a local attorney as soon as possible and look at getting someone retained to help you with the process as you will need to send your own discovery questions to him. Good Luck!

    Tyler’s Answer

    You have a right to have a public defender represent you at the shelter care hearing once a CPA (Child Protective Action) case has been started if you can't afford an attorney. You need to discuss theses issues with them.

    If you can afford a private attorney then you should do so. Also, you should understand that the public defender cannot represent you in the custody case against the father. They will just help with the CPA case. You will need to find an experienced family law attorney to defend the custody case the dad has started. Good luck!
