    Dan, I think you need to post your question in the California section. Unless an Oregon lawyer has taken and passed the bar in the California, they will not be able to help you. This might be the sort of thing you can take care of over the phone with a California lawyer if you can pull them away from their ipad and iced mocha-latte frappuccino. Alternatively, you could just never go to California again. I imagine if they were planning to extradite you it would have happened by 1992 or so.

    It is possible to represent yourself, although not advisable. Your best bet would be to call the modest means program back and ask for an additional modest means referral located in the area. Good luck.

    http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/107.108 controls this issue. The answer to your question depends on a few factors. If a current child support order exists, he is in school half time or more, and he is making "satisfactory academic progress" then yes, he probably can continue to get support. If he is looking at a second senior year however, he may not be making "satisfactory academic progress". That is a factor set by the school, so you may want to inquire to see if he meets that requirement. Good...

    As the others have noted, I am not a Lawyer in India but if the legal system there is anything like the legal system here then you need your own lawyer and that lawyer should practice in the jurisdiction in which the case has been filed. If your family has named you as a defendant then whatever lawyer they have hired is not on your side. I would consult with someone immediately if I were you. Good luck. Jeffrey K.

    Jay is absolutely right regarding the law in your situation. That said, as a practical matter, judges tend to disfavor parents that haven't been paying their support absent a really good reason. It would also probably be better from a strategic point of view to acquire a new job before you begin stirring up the hornets nest. Without knowing more about your case it is impossible to determine what your chances however. It sounds like you would benefit from a sit-down with an attorney to ascertain...

  6. My significant other is in the middle of a court case. Will I get pulled in too?

    Jay and Joanne are largely correct. If you didn't witness the act that your significant other witnessed it is highly unlikely that you would be called to testify. If it is your prior record that you are concerned about you shouldn't be. If an adverse party attempted to discredit your significant other by pointing out that he or she is seeing or lives with someone with a record such evidence would be absolutely inadmissible. Assuming you didn't witness the event, the only way you would ever...

  7. My fiance' thought he was divorced but we just found out he is not. What steps do we take to get him divorced w/o hiring atty?

    It's always best to do these things with the help of an attorney so that you what your rights are. That said, if your fiance wants to get a divorce he will likely need to file provided his ex didn't divorce him in the State of Tennessee (you may want to look into this). The best way to go about it would be to get in contact with the ex and either attempt to file a stipulated motion and order to reinstate the case, or to file a new stipulated petition and judgment. When you file a stipulated...

    If she will agree to sign over guardianship, Ms. Gruber is correct and such forms are easy to prepare and do not require filing with the court.That said, sometimes it is in your best interest to set up something more permanent via ORS 109.119 if she will agree to stipulated to granting you parenting rights. Additionally, if she will not agree to a guardianship you utilize ORS 109.119 as well. ORS 109.119 contains statutory authority to grant parenting rights to individuals who have...

  9. I have joint custody of my 2 kids but some things were not clear in the original order, can I lose custody if I go back to court

    There is always a risk that when you go to court you may lose. If either you or the other parent ask the court to make a custody decision it will. Joint custody is only awarded by agreement. That said, based on what you posted I would recommend mediation in your case. It sounds like the problems you are having are more logistical in nature rather than substantive. If I was in your situation I would give a call or write an email to the other party and lay the cards out on the table. Let them...

  10. Is it legal in the state of Oregon for the parent to withhold the birth certificate and social security card from the child?

    This is an interesting question that have not previously come across. Assuming that the child is a minor and is not emancipated I am not aware of any law that would prevent a parent from withholding the social security card or the birth certificate. Such a withholding could be a perfectly appropriate exercise of parenting if the parent wished to forbid the child from traveling or getting a job. That said, I am not aware of any reason that the child or other parent couldn't march down to the...
