    Very few attorneys you will find have Hague experience and since your ex is attempting to obtain travel orders to a non-Hague venue, you really seem to need counsel able to focus on your underlying custody trial, understanding a series of critical hard fought enforcement hearings may also be necessary if you do not prevail at trial AND your suspicions also prove accurate. There are a number of safety measures and reasonable preliminary precautions you should consider right now. Have him post a...

    You are entitled to get divorced any time you want because California is one of the states that do not require a "reason" why it should be granted. We are a "no fault" state and if you are not happy being married, file a Petition to be divorced and in about six months, you may ask the court to end your marital status. Every court has trained volunteers who can help you fill out the paperwork. You are also entitled to ask for custody of your child. What sounds problematic, however, is...

    It sounds like you ARE now divorced based in the fact a Judgment was filed in your case. You can be sure by looking to see whether a DATE was entered by the clerk next to the "marital status terminates on". You also should have received another form that comes to you in a separate envelope called " notice of entry of judgment". It also will provide you with the date upon which marital status ends. You can run out and get re-married the very next day after marital status ends. And your ex...

  4. Does my husband (the Respondent) have to send the signed answer, his response for the divorce, directly to the Court or to me?

    Good answer. Technically correct. Here is the reason why the court is concerned. At the heart of everything legal, the Constitution of California and the United States require that no matter what results come from court, the process has to be fair. It is called Due Process which is a fundamental right we all share. It means if you sue someone, for money or divorce or whatever, before a judge can grant your requests, s/he has to make sure that the other side got notice of what you want,...

  5. Can I get my spousal support modified due to ineffective legal counsel a at final trial?

    Kudos to the lawyer who has already responded to your inquiry and clearly untenable predicament for a correct analysis of what limited facts you shared. What strikes me odd a bit is the direct and utterly articulate if not sophisticated manner in which you penned your present problem using only the skills gleaned from an 8th grade education many years ago. I'd guess your idea of appropriate spousal support hardly compares with what the man making $30K/month feels is fair. What is roughly 35%...

  6. Would it be best to modify custody to full custody?

    If the court orders that awarded you custody of the children also define his visits, you do not need to modify. The fact you have custody by itself would prevent him from keeping the children.

  7. My mom smokes pot and is impossible to take seriously. Could my dad obtain custody without her consent?

    The law says a judge has to consider the expressed wishes and preferences of a minor who is of sufficient age, intelligence and maturity so as to make decisions that are in the child's best interest. It also says a child who is 14 years or older is allowed to testify in court, (rather than relying on often faulty accounts of what the child wants as expressed by their parents. Your dad should get a custody lawyer in San Diego to fill out the paperwork. In short, pot is illegal, unhealthy,...

  8. Is a response required for an RFO?

    Answered 6 months ago.

    Yes and no: when you filed an RFO, the hearing date was set out in the future to give the other side time to respond. They do NOT have to reply on writing, but will be limited in what the court lets them say at the hearing. You're only supposed to be allowed to talk about those allegations contained in the written declarations that were presented under oath and in advance of the hearing. Look up Code of Civil Procedure section 1008 for deadlines. Also read Family Code section 3011(a)...

  9. I know of a couple that purjerized in their divorce paperwork, with the attorney's knowledge. How do they get away with this?

    I'm going to guess the couple you know may be your own pending or completed case. Either way the not-funny saying in divorce court is that 90% of everything submitted is untrue and the other 10% is not relevant. Of course people are supposed to tell the truth and there should be consequences for lying. It used to be a spanking or time out but statements are often downplayed as opinions or estimates or inadvertent carelessness versus bold face lies. Courts are suffering from fiscal cutbacks....

  10. What usually happens after a family resolution conferences

    Answered about 1 month ago.

    The family resolution conference does not mark the end of your case. It is a hearing the court sets to find out how it may be possible to end your case. Court will want to make sure that the declarations of disclosure have been completed and exchanged. The court will want to know what issues are in dispute and whether the parties have completed their discovery. And the court will want to know whether everyone feels they may be ready for a mandatory settlement conference which IS the last event...
