Do I still need to respond to a TRO hearing if my divorce is settled before set date?: I was served with a petition for divorce, along with a TRO. My husband and I had come to terms and his lawyer is to prepare all our paperworks. Should I still get an attorney for myself and do I still need to appear for the TRO hearing if we finalized our divorce before set date? Thank you.

George’s answer: If you were married at the time your husband is the presumed father. Check with the Bureau of Vital Statistics, it might be as simple as filing a form to change the name on the birth certificate.

If I close my child support case , can a petition for modification take place by an outside party?: I allowed my brother to help me with my youngest child.

George’s answer: You can end your case but since he has filed for his relief then his can go forward. It does not end the case. Sounds like he wants to keep the child. You may be in a custody fight. You need to talk to a lawyer to go over the specifics.
