  • How long does it take for a divorce decree in Westchester county to be imaged?

    My divroce case status changed to disposed and JOD was signed about 11 days ago. I went to the Westchester clerk office and asked for my divorce decree. They said it has not been imaged yet. 1. How long does it take for the divorce decree to g...

    Brian’s Answer

    It all depends on how backlogged the Clerk's office is. You should take the previous counsel's advice and call the Clerk before going into the office (to save yourself the trip).

    You will not be given the original copy of your JOD, but a certified copy will be sufficient.

  • Can I change visitation to supervised

    I want to provide supervised visitation for my children with their father after he had been arrested for drugs and paraphernalia multiple times as well as his girlfriend and after he left my child alone in the ER for 4 hours

    Brian’s Answer

    Assuming you are following a current Order of Visitation, you will need to petition the court for a modification of said Order. Whether or not you are successful in your petition will depend on whether or not a Judge thinks the situation warrants a modification.

    I suggest you hire a lawyer to help you with this.

    Brian’s Answer

    You need to contact a divorce attorney in the Fitzgerald area, and schedule a consultation. They will probably recommend that you try to locate your estranged wife, but if you can't, discuss alternative forms of service/divorce.

    Brian’s Answer

    She can file without her husband's permission or consent. That being said, if he is this uncooperative this early on in the process, then he may continue the behavior after an action is filed.

    She should really retain an attorney.

    Divorce

    Brian’s Answer

    Assuming you meet the residency requirements, you can file in Sacramento have your wife served in LA. Most attorneys will hire a process serving company to do this, so it is easy.
