  • Should I call CPS?

    My ex and his girlfriend were just court ordered to NOT transport our daughter because of multiple DUI convictions and DUI hit and run. My ex just had his car impounded and now has a warrant because of driving on a suspended license. He now went a...

    Hillary’s Answer

    I'm sorry that you're going through this. No lawyer on Avvo can advise you to contact CPS since that's legal advice. However, given what you've described, I'd call a lawyer right away and move to suspend visitation. He's making it clear that he can't be trusted with the safety of your child. If you wait until it happens again, it could be too late. There are several excellent lawyers in San Diego. Look at Avvo or call the San Diego Bar Association, Lyris and ask for a referral.

    Hillary’s Answer

    Both counsel are correct. If you're really wondering about it then it's probably worth hiring an attorney to evaluate the settlement agreement and to discuss your options with you.

  • How wage garnishment works over child and spousal support?

    I am in divorce process and temporary order paying spousal and child support every month promptly. But my greedy wife is never happy and willing to file for wage garnishment because she is receiving my checks not on 1st of each month, but in just ...

    Hillary’s Answer

    You've asked several questions. Yes, the court can grant it if it feels that it's appropriate and it's the usual course with these kinds of cases. Do you have a lawyer advising you during this case? If you do, it's a good idea to have them handle this for you. If you don't, it's probably worth your time and money to hire one to advise you of your legal rights.

    Hillary’s Answer

    Agree and did you have a lawyer during this process? If you did, ask them first. If you didn't, consult or hire one to advise you as to the best way to proceed. This is a rather lengthy and detailed question for an Avvo lawyer to answer, not because of their abilities, but because of the limited range of questions that an Avvo attorney can answer without giving legal advice on this forum.

  • My boyfriend & I are filing for domestic partnership. If & when we decide to get married, how will this affect us?

    Do we need to terminate the domestic partnership before applying for a marriage license?

    Hillary’s Answer

    No. You don't need to terminate your domestic partnership before getting married, however, if you have assets to protect you ought to consider a prenup. You had asked 'how will this affect us'. The answer is I don't know since I don't know all of the facts about your case. Do you have other questions.
