    Nazanin’s Answer

    I highly recommend you consult with a family law attorney so they can tell you what your rights maybe. It sounds like you may in fact have a community property interest in the house but it's hard to say with the info you've provided so far.

  • How can I find out if my husband has filed for a divorce yet? By law am I supposed to give him information about my lawyer?

    He told me to leave, a month ago, since then I have been in Bakersfield, where all my stuff is still in SD, and a month away I want to know if he has filed yet? He keeps asking me for information about my lawyer, but I haven't hired her yet, do...

    Nazanin’s Answer

    No you do not have to provide any such information to him, and as my colleagues have explained when and if you retain this attorney, then she/he will contact the opposing side as well as the Court and provide the info. However it may definitely be a good idea for you to in fact retain an attorney. You may also want to discuss with an attorney the specifics facts of your case and find out what your rights, and obligations may be. Additionally, depending on the specifics of the case you may even be able to settle the entire matter out of court, which would be cost effective and the quickest way to end the case. Best of luck to you...

  • What is the statute for a divorce that is off calendar?

    I filed 7 years ago. We had lots of back and forth between lawyers but no court dates. After a few months and a ridiculous amount of money, we filed in pro per and took it off calendar to try and reconcile. I should have put it back on calendar...

    Nazanin’s Answer

    Since doing a stipulation and order to get the case back on the court's calendar requires the cooperation of the other party, and from what you've indicated here, you don't have such cooperation it seems like your only choice is to start all over again. Keep in mind, starting all over again doesn't mean you need to have his cooperation. You may ask for a divorce and obtain one even if the other party doesn't want it. You can apply for a court fee waiver if you qualify for one. The next step after filing it would be to serve the other party. You can hire a private process serving company to do that so you don't have to deal with that part and that's usually pretty inexpensive. It may be a good idea to consult with an attorney prior to taking any action so that you have a plan and know what to expect. Lots of attorney's offer free consults, so take advantage of it- it can only help you!

    I am currently in removal proceedings pending a court date due to the fact I submitted a N400. I have been speaking with various lawyers, but cannot get a definitive answer on my chances of canceling removal proceedings. I am also desperate to k...

    Nazanin’s Answer

    The best thing you can do for yourself is to hire an immigration attorney NOW. Being put in removal proceedings is a serious matter and as I'm sure you know can have very significant consequences. This is not something you can do on your own, it will require appearing before a judge and proving that you qualify for this kind of relief, etc.

  • I want to leave state with my children and we have no custody case going on. The father just got out of jail .Can I leave

    We have past domestic issues and he's just got done doing some jail time. He has no job and uses drugs I left before and now his trying to take my youngest child I just got her bk. He had her for two months.

    Nazanin’s Answer

    The answer to your question depends on many factor and the fact that there is no custody battle right now isn't a key factor. Your situation sounds a bit more complicated and you need to provide a lot more informant before someone can give you a solid answer. You should definitely consult with a family law attorney before you move out of state as you certainly don't want to be accused of interfering with parental rights or kidnapping, etc.

  • Do I need to look for a new family law lawyer?

    I found these lawyers online and everything looked great at first, they told me they would fight for me, answer all my questions, and take care of all the legal problems that would come up but after the first hearing they stopped everything and ...

    Nazanin’s Answer

    Your attorney's job is to fight for you and to represent your interest in Court- so If he/she is not even responding to your inquiries, I think it may be a good idea for you to consult with a new family law attorney and do so as quickly as possible. It would be wise for you to take all your documents with you when you go see the new attorney(s) and discuss your case. If your husband is in fact doing the things you've alleged here, you don't have much time to waste. Best of luck to you...

  • What do i bring to mediation?

    Me and my ex have 50/50 week on week off she is now moving out of county and wants full custody I am asking the same since I do all of the appointments and she does nothing. Should I bring proof she never takes him to the doctor? Should I bring th...

    Nazanin’s Answer

    You should definitely take everything you have with you to the mediation to support your position. If mediation fails you will have to probably go into court and try to modify the existing custody order to prevent her from taking your child(ren) to another county. Continue documenting as you have been so far, it will be helpful down the road if you have to litigate. Best of luck!

    I agree with my colleague and recommend you consult with an attorney ASAP. Judges treat pro per litigants like attorneys so you will be expected to know what you are doing. Good luck!
