  • How do i get the child support amount cut in half cause thats what we agreed to and i get joint physical custody of our daughter

    My girlfriend and i just split up ,we have a 1 yr.old daughter.We have come to an agreement concerning child support,but she gets free daycare paid for by the county.The county is forcing her to take me for child support.We went in front of the su...

    Carrie Anne’s Answer

    I suggest that you file a petition for custody where you and your girlfriend can appear before a Family Court Judge and enter into a consent order there for joint custody. Once that is done you can appear before the support magistrate (on a downward modification petition) and have a consent order entered, which deviates from the child support standards act based upon the amount of time which you spend with your child and the cost you incur during your visitiation.

  • My husband is still refusing to divorce? my attorney has been working on this she claims now no longer uncontested

    loaded hunt my husband broke into my house with a loaded hunting rifle and was going to kill me. he is up for parole still refusing divorce?

    Carrie Anne’s Answer

    I would agree with your attorney. I would think that you should want an order of protection and an order of exclusive use and occupancy of the marital residence! I am confident that your attorney has told you to call the police in the event that your Husband shows up at the house again... also, did you file a domestic incident report? You may want to discuss doing that with your attorney...

  • I married in 1999 and my husband( that time) left me. Now I need to know how can I find out with he did annulment or divorced.

    I married in 1999 and my husband(that time) was a militar from Navy and he left me. I moved to other State and I never got even the Annulment or Divorce. How can I find out if I still married?

    Carrie Anne’s Answer

    You should contact the county clerk's office for where you were 1) married; 2) you presently reside and 3) where your husband currently resides to see if a divorce or annulment was processed. Technically, you were required to be served with divorce and/or annulment papers. In addition, if you have any contact with your Husband or your Husband's family I suggest that you call someone and inquire if he obtained a divorce or annulment.

  • I am married to an emmigrant and want to obtain my childs full custody due to seperation not divorce?

    I want to obtain the custody so i wont have to depend on him when i have to travel with my child or when we loose communication due to being an emmigrant

    Carrie Anne’s Answer

    If you are simply looking to obtain a custody order so that you may travel with your child and make decisions for him and/or her, you can go to family court and advice the court of your intention. When doing this, you will need to explain to the court how you have been the child's primary care taker and why it would be in the child's best interest for you to have sole decision making over the child's travel, education and medical decisions. Once you file this petition (seeking sole custody) you will be required to serve the father with this petition so that he may appear in court and state his position on this issue. At that time, the Father will have the ability to file his own petition for sole custody, a visitation petition or simply consent to your petition.

  • Do I have the right to move a custody case from family court to supreme court? How do I get the case moved?

    Carrie Anne’s Answer

    If there is a divorce case pending in Supreme Court you can file a motion to consolidate and have the family court case consolidated with the Supreme Court case. If you have not yet filed a Supreme Court case (seeking a divorce) then you can do that and move for the family court case to be consolidated with your new Supreme Court Case. I should caution you that if the family court has begun a trial or completed a substantive amount of work on the case (ie: you, your husband and child(ren) have met with a forensic evaluator, your request to consolidate this family court case may be denied. In any event, I suggest that you speak with your attorney about your concerns so that you can come up with a plan.
