Okay so my 11 year old is doing very poorly in school. He isn't turning in homework, this has been an on going with his father not making him do it. I want to ask our judge for a chance to help my son suceed... I want to ask her to give me a schoo...
The answer to that question is going to depend a lot on the details of your case. I can't think of a reason why you would be considered a bad parent for wanting your son to succeed in school. You should consult with an attorney privately to discuss the specifics of your case and your best options moving forward.See question
Last year my ex bf and I came to an agreement during our custody battle. We have joint legal and physical custody and neither of us is considered primary. One of the provisions in the agreement however stated that I couldn't work in an exotic danc...
When you say you filed to modify that provision and it was allowed but you are waiting for a response, I assume you mean a "show cause order" was signed. If there is a case pending you may be able to get a court to address the issue of seeing your kids in the meantime by filing certain motions or requesting a status conference. You should consult with an attorney right away before too much time passes without seeing your kids.See question
My wife does not want to give me the divorce but we fight constantly and she has kicked me out more than once. She's not willing to give me the divorce. What can I do.
You can file a Petition for divorce. Oregon is a no fault state, and you do not need her agreement to seek the divorce. You should consult with an attorney privately to discuss how long it might take for you based on your specific circumstances.See question
my husband wants a divorce, we have a minor child. He has expressed to me that he doesn't want to go to court and that if i get the divorce paper work he will just sign them. We have a minor child which he has no interest in having custody of woul...
Yes, you can and that is the preferred way to handle things. It is better for you and your child if the parents can agree. The court still has to approve the agreement but that is pretty routine usually and you would not have to set foot in a courtroom with most settled cases. In Marion county you will still need to attend the court mandated parent education course. The process can be fairly quick once you have figured out what the agreement will be. You should contact an attorney to help You through the process. There is a lot of paperwork.See question
I was emailed by a lawyer that my wife has spoken to, he has not been retained by my wife, but has given me notice not to request a default judgment without first providing her and the court 10 days official written notice of your intent to do so ...
No you cannot proceed with a default under those circumstances. You have to give an additional 10 days written notice. It sounds like there are some complexities involved here so you really should consult with an attorney before doing anything further.See question
Say everything was in the wife's name and they defaulted and were getting sued right and left. Now they are still together and are buying cars, remodeling their house etc. etc. Is it illegal and would anyone even be bothered to pursue it?
When you file for divorce in Oregon you have to state that there are "irreconcilable differences that have caused the irremediable breakdown of your marriage." People can certainly change their minds or work things out later, but I would never advise someone to make a false statement in a court pleading if you do not meet the standard for divorce (irreconcilable differences). Whether the District Attorney would bother to pursue it? I doubt it, but you never know. A divorce may not necessarily resolve this, anyway. Just because the debts are in one parties' name does NOT mean the other can't be ordered to be responsible for any of them in a divorce. Perhaps you should talk to a bankruptcy lawyer about your options with regard to the debts being pursued.See question
I am wondering some things that are going on in my case. My Ex has custody of my 2 boys. ages 11 and 9. My ex has taken me to court right around 7 times in the last 8 years to take more from our children and take more from me. They live in Salem a...
When you say that the attorney won't talk to you - it is not clear whether you mean in person, on the phone, at all, etc. I know that sometimes lawyers prefer to communicate only in writing with parties who are representing themselves. If there is custody or parenting time involved, you are required to participate in mediation in most counties - but otherwise there is no requirement that the parties (or attorneys) participate in settlement negotiations - although it is a good idea to try usually. There seems to be a lot going on in your case and a lot of history. You should invest in a consultation with an attorney who can give you some information based on your case specifics (which you should not post online).See question
Mother (custodial parent) has told our 7-he old daughter several times over the last two months that they both will be moving somewhere new, away from my stepdaughter's father and half-brother. She's instructed our daughter to keep the secret and ...
If the noncustodial parent thinks the child is going to be moved away he can file a Motion with the court asking to modify the current judgment and to stop the move. He should consult with an attorney sooner than later especially if it is unknown when this is planned to happen.See question
I plan to move to Florida where I have a support system, and staying in Oregon isn't an option. I plan on hiring a lawyer, but I need to know what I don't know so I can better form my argument.
I assume this is not agreed upon by the other parent. Move away cases are very difficult. You have to show that it is best for the child to move. Not just you. You should consult with an attorney right away.See question
I was married for 45 years. I am a widow getting married. I have a will in place, and have my retirement accounts, savings, a home in California, and other arrangements in my will, left to my family.
Yes. Your Will does not trump your spouse's rights to an equitable property division if you end up divorcing (this is the Oregon standard). Your premarital property, although not automatically presumed joint, can be considered by a divorce court and divided. You should protect yourself with a prenuptial agreement.See question
