    Yes, you can still obtain a Summary Dissolution, so long as your spouse is willing to sign the Summary Dissolution forms as well. It would be best to start the process as soon as possible, since you will still need to wait the mandatory 6 months after filing the Summary Dissolution before you are officially divorced. You should also suggest to your spouse that she list the biological father on the birth certificate once the the child is born.

    This will depend on the type of agreement you are filing (a stipulation or judgment) and ultimately the county and court where you filed your agreement. I would contact the family law clerk's office where you filed the agreement to obtain the answer to this question.

    You can conduct discovery, including the use of a forensic accountant, to accurate depict how much the business earns and substantiate your husband's income. In addition, you may be able to use his purported expenses to show the earning potential of the business if your husband consistently pays the bills on time; your husband's ability to pay the bills will show that he has a sufficient source of income.

    If you are submitting documents as part of the Investigation, then these can likely be turned into the investigator directly. If however you are trying to show the Judge documents at a hearing, then you will need to provide the other party's attorney with a copy; the law generally does not allow people to show things to the Judge without first showing the opposition (this is called an ex parte communication). You do not state whether you are the Petitioner, or the one opposing the...

    You should also attach a copy of the corporation's Profit & Loss statement, which should detail the company's expenses too.

    I agree that you should discuss this with your attorney and the possibility of responding to the serious allegations sent to minor's counsel. I would also ask your attorney whether or not this conduct is part of a pattern than would warrant a request for sanctions.

    I agree with Ms. McCall. It may prove beneficial to contact the persons you intend to call as witnesses so that you may discover what their testimony will contain. This will likely help guide you in presenting your case or defense, and undoubtedly better prepare you for the answers you can expect to receive from the different witnesses.

  8. Spousal support

    Answered over 1 year ago.

    1. Matthew Edwin Forsse
    1 lawyer answer

    The answer to your questions depends in part on whether the court has previously issued any temporary spousal support. If you have a trial date next month to address the issue of spousal support, then the Court will weigh the factors listed in California Family Code section 4320. These factors include the length of marriage, your marital standard of living, education, age, and any history of domestic violence to name a select few. You should not only review these factors but also consult an...

    You can certainly use a criminal stay-away order to support a Domestic Violence Restraining Order request in Family Court. Similar to the stay-away order in criminal court, the Family Law courts can issue a Restraining Order for up to 5 years. A Restraining Order from Family Court is typically more detailed but will also allow for more exceptions as my colleague suggested. Even if there is a criminal protective order and a restraining order, the biological mother can still seek monitored...

    If you want to legally change your name, then you will need to file an action with the Court. However, you may qualify for a Fee Waiver depending on your financial circumstances. You can find the necessary Fee Waiver Application and Order on Fee Waiver on the County Court website, or through the Self-Help Center at the courthouse.
