    Step one. Obtain a certified copy of the marriage certificate showing the marriage to wife number one. Step two. Obtain a certified copy of the entire divorce case filed by wife number one. Step three. Obtain a declaration from wife number one regarding the date of their marriage and the date of their divorce, if any. Did they ever get divorced? I agree that you should at least consult with an attorney who will ask you detailed questions about dates. Where was your husband living...

    I agree with Attorney Steinberg. It sounds as if you were thinking of getting the initial allegations against you be dismissed because the folks who accused you have been found to abuse your children. It is possible, but extremely difficult to do so. In terms of realistically using your resources you are better off with filing a WIC 388. You can also present evidence at the WIC 387 petition. You are better off preparing something in writing ahead of the trial to increase the chances that...

    Yes it is possible to still divorce from your husband. Your ability to file a divorce depends on how long you have lived in your county and state of residence. For example, if you have lived in Los Angeles County for longer than 3 months and in the State of California for longer than 6 months then you can file petition for dissolution of your marriage. Your most important obstacle in this process is going to be the proper service of your estranged husband. There are several key questions...

    You have to answer the petition within 30 days of being personally served. Carefully review the second page of the summons. It contains automatic restraining orders that went into effect when you were served with the petition. If you feel that your ex is likely to keep changing his mind then you should hire an attorney to make sure that receive a fair spousal support and division of property. If your husband earns a great deal of money and you are a non-working housewife then there is a...

    The first thing to do is to find out if the child is really yours. This can be done as part of a paternity or child support case that the woman may file against you. If it is not yours then you can stop worrying about it. If it is yours and the mother is going after your money then insist on enforcing your rights as a father. Here is why. Child support is determined (roughly ) according to this formula: how much time each parent spends with the child; how much money each parent makes or is...

    Hello: I agree with the previous answer. You need to hire an attorney, and it would help to know what you are accused of before I make an educated guess as to what the judge may do in your case. For example, if the only thing that the petition accused you of was failure to protect your children from an abusive husband, your chances of the Court go up if he has already moved out. If your husband is in fact abusive and you want to end the relationship, then you should get a restraining...

  9. How do I remove my 17 year old abusive son out of the home legally?

    For the next six months your options are not great because reporting your stepson to the police will likely get Child Protective Services involved. Juvenile delinquency system has no incentive to get him out. They usually try to keep the child in the home. Once he turns 18 you can file unlawful detainer (eviction).

    Your friend has to stop smoking weed or take any other illegal substances. When she goes to the hospital they are going to take her blood and test it for illegal substances. If any such substances are found in mother's blood or in the baby's blood, a child protective agency will be involved. However, there is a reunification process available. If your friend delays going to the doctor the reunification is less likely to be offered. So she really needs to go take care of the baby and...
