    Spousal Support is based on several factors and is in the discretion of the court. That being said, you seem to have some favorable factors in your case. You mention you have kids, so there may be issues involving child support and custody if they are minors. You should definitely speak with an attorney in detail about your case and start the divorce process. Nothing will be handed to you unless you enforce your rights. Best of luck, -Sanjay Paul, Esq.

    If you can reach an agreement with her and file it with the court, you will not need to appear in court. If no agreement can be reached, you will need to take her to court by filing a Request for Orders. Best of luck, -Sanjay A. Paul, Esq. www.pasadenadivorcelawyer.net (888) 373-2602

    I would recommend applying for DACA first. Compared to other avenues, it's the most inexpensive, and the fastest way to protect yourself from deportation on an interim basis. After that you can consider the other options which are more time-consuming and expensive. Keep in mind DACA will not give you a green card or a pathway to citizenship; but it's still a great program until you can analyze other avenues. I would also advise that you go through a lawyer to file your application because...

    Speak to a criminal defense attorney to see what can be done about your DUI conviction. If this can be changed in any way, you may have a shot at DACA. Otherwise, it's a bar. Best of luck, Sanjay A. Paul, Esq. (888) 373-2602 www.dreamlawca.com

    You are probably referring to an article that ran in the WSJ recently about Tatoos affecting citizenship. Tattoos can prejudice an applicant if the tattoos are associated with certain gangs. If you have "non-gang related" tattoos, you will be fine. The article can be accessed here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303933404577505192265987100.html

    I agree with my colleague. Deferred Action would offer your some immediate benefits without having to leave the country. Also keep in mind the uncertainty associated with a hardship waiver. I represent clients in the Deferred Action process and would be glad to speak with you. Best of luck, Sanjay Paul,Esq. (888) 373-2602 www.latinodreamers.com

    You should be fine, but it is a good idea to know what information the government has about you - which is why a FOIA request is a good idea in certain situations. In addition, sometimes you have to meet with a few lawyers before deciding who is the best fit for you. I'm available for a consultation if you have any questions.

  8. Getting My Wages Garnished Now-Will A Bankruptcy Cancel Out My Current Garnishment & Keep Any Positive Credit Still On My Report

    Generally speaking, you can stop a wage garnishment even if it is currently taking place by filing a a bankruptcy. A bankruptcy will show on your credit history for 10 years after date of filing. As for your credit report; a bankruptcy starts the rebuilding process asap. On the path you're on, the credit rebuilding doesn't start until all your debts are settled. Best of luck, Sanjay A.

    Collectors usually threaten to do all kinds of things immediately. They can garnish your wages, but they need a judgment and they need to enforce it. You usually get notice from your employer as well when your next paycheck will be garnished. As far as "freezing all assets," that sounds like a bit of malarkey. They can't freeze your assets - they levy your bank account usually with a judgment; but once again, they have to enforce it, which requires taking a few more steps that take time....
