Asked 4 months ago - Hermitage, TNFlag
My wife wants 1000 dollar every month and she wants to carry my last name. She didn't mention how long she wants money from me. We don't have any kids or property under our name. I don't know what to do
Not being licensed in California, I'm not sure of how their law works. If she has hired a lawyer, you will likely need to fight this in California. If she has just done this on her own, there's a chance she has messed somethgin up and you could get it dismissed in CA and then you could file in TN. If this were a TN case, I'd feel comfortable telling you it doesn't sound like a difficult case at all. Find an expereicned CA family lawyer who can help you out. If it somehow gets sent back to TN (doubtful) consult with a TN lawyer (or best of both worlds try to find somone licensed in bioth states)
You need to retain an attorney to represent you. Be sure to take copies of the documents you were served with to your first meeting. I would start by talking with a family law attorney in TN but it may be necessary for you to retain counsel in CA. If you would like to discuss further, please call my office at 800-637-2209 to schedule a free consultation.
