    In family law, attorney fees can be ordered pursuant to Family Code section 2030. Thus, if there is a disparity in income, you could be ordered to contribute to fees of the other party. The Court will assess child support first though and then analyze the income disparity.

    You can ask that the court not consider the late declaration but it is up to the court. You don't need to file anything beforehand but make sure to bring up this issue at the beginning of the hearing. If the court allows it, you can verbally replied as needed. Best of luck!

    Given the length of the marriage, I strongly suggest she consult with an attorney regarding her rights. She will also want to consider whether a divorce or legal separation are in her best interest. Contact an attorney in her area and see if they offer a free consultation to start. Best of luck.

    I agree with the prior attorney's response. Additionally, you should speak with an attorney in your area to discuss your specific case, as that will better assess what the judge in your matter will do. The history of prior court orders and Father's prior testimony all need to be considered. Best of luck.

  6. What are the pros and cons of negotiating a divorce and custody settlement through the court vs out of court negotiations?

    Filing with the Court will create court imposed deadlines on the process and the Court will check-in (depending on your county) on the case status to ensure it is moving forward. However, you should still try to settle outside of court, as it's better to come to a resolution that you agree with rather than one imposed by a judge.

  7. Does having full physical custody of my older children give me a higher chance of full custody when my baby is born?

    Child custody orders are always modifiable so, depending on the circumstances, the Court may modify your current order. Since you know the father will contest custody, you should start preparing your response and evidence now. Consult with an attorney to discuss more specifics about your case. You may even want to consider filing before the father makes his request. Best of luck.

    Keep track of the denied visits and use to support a motion to modify visitation in the future. There are many options - file a motion for contempt, file a motion to modify, etc. However, more information about your specific matter will need to be discussed to determine the likelihood of success. Contact an attorney to better determine your options. Best of luck.

    All issues are likely not dismissed but you should get a copy of the court's order from that hearing to clarify. Typically, support orders, especially through DCSS will carry forward. Best of luck!

    You should contact the court clerk and/or pull a copy of the court file to determine what type of judgment was entered. It is likely one that terminates status of your marriage but you cannot confirm that solely by the brief description provided. Plus, you should keep a copy of the final divorce judgment for your records.
