  • What to do when you missed sixty days in filing for divorce.

    No - details. I just need to know what I should do if i missed my 60 days in filing for divorced

    Harris’s Answer

    I don't understand the question. Can you please clarify with greater specificity?

    You have 30 days to file a response to a marital dissolution petition. You have 60 days to serve your Preliminary Declaration of Disclosures on opposing party.

    Best to consult with a family law attorney in your area.

  • I'm a disable veteran i get a disability check from the VA can my wife claim any of that money as marital income ?

    Nothing further .TY

    Harris’s Answer

    As a fellow colleague has stated, VA disability is counted as income for support purposes. However, it is not divisible as a property right, as opposed to military retirement.

    Best of luck!

  • Is there a lawyer that practices family law in california and texas?

    Need a lawyer to help with a divorce decree that has been filed in texas and needs to be modified. We live in San diego and need a lawyer here that can do this in both states

    Harris’s Answer

    Who is 'we'? If it's you, your ex, and any minor child, I would file paperwork moving the case from TX to CA, as TX is an inconvenient forum.

    Then you would just need a Family Law attorney in CA to modify the order to reflect the current circumstances.

  • Just got a call saying i have a hearing tomorrow, yet i was never served with any papers. is this legal?

    Ex girlfriends attorney called stating I had a court hearing tomorrow for custody of our daughter and he was giving a 24 hour notice. I never received papers, never got served. WHAT DO I DO

    Harris’s Answer

    Was this an ex-parte request? If so, they may notify you by telephone (by 10 am the day prior to the hearing). An ex-parte request needs to be an emergency and the opposing party must demonstrate exigency.

    Best of luck!

    What gives that dad's are skimped in our children's lives when dealing with that difficult woman AND how is shared custody widely considered "disruptive to a child" while short changing our children out of fatherly nurturing is acceptable with mos...

    Harris’s Answer

    Not necessarily. The standard is 'the best interest of the child'. The 'tender years doctrine' that favored young children statlying with their mother is now gone.
    Each case is different. Best to consult a Family Law attorney in your area.

    Best of luck!

  • I have a Colorado judgment against my ex-spouse for unpaid child support. He now lives in California...

    I am not sure if California has adopted the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act. Can you tell me the basic process of transferring the judgment to California? Do I have to file a suit in California or can I file a an exemplified judgment ...

    Harris’s Answer

    CA has adopted the UCCJEA, but that is for child custody, not child support. The Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA), is the appropriate act.

    CA will enforce an out of state judgment.
    Recommend you go to Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) and initiate a case there. They can garnish his wages and get you CS for your child.

    Best of luck!
