Unemployed and out of money due to a 2 1/2 year divorce battle. Have a hearing to reduce child support until I am employed again. Children's mother will be away on vacation at the time of the hearing. Does she need to be there?
If she does not appear, the conference officer may calculate a new amount of support using her old income numbers and take your new information without question.See question

You can obtain a divorce here in the US. However, equitable distribution may present problems if no US state can claim personal jurisdiction over him. You need to speak with an attorney knowledgeable in international issues regarding this.See question
My oldest son has told me that they spend the majority of their time at their grandparents, they sleep there almost every night and he has told me that his moms electric was turned off at one point and his mom told him she was going to the casino ...
You cannot question where the money goes or the grandparents' babysitting. What you might do is challenge custody by showing that you can offer your children a better life. If she has the electricity turned off due to non-payment and gambles a lot, she is not offering the children a very good life. She cannot manage the money that she receives. You also have a right to be with the children when she is not with them, so if the grandparents are with them all of the time, you can argue for that time being given to you. You would need to show that your school district is better for the children than hers is, among other things. You really need to speak with an attorney about the details of your situation before you do anything.See question
Custodial parent (mother) wants to move child from PA to SC. She stated that court costs and time were an inconvenience and she was going to bring child from PA to SC where noncustodial parent (father) lives and drop him off for father to take car...
The answer to your question is that the custody order that is in place will remain in place. Mother can return any time in order to take the child and return to the original schedule. If mother has handled custody in the manner you describe, you should take custody and file for transfer to SC, where you will have already filed with the courts there. You should discuss this with an attorney in SC in order to comply with the requirements there. In PA, you may file for transfer once the child has been moved there. If mother keeps doing this, you should have no trouble transferring to your state.See question
My son's father decide it was funny to put a joke on fb about him and my son being in Canada.. now I am terrified to even let him go over there he's suppose to bring him back Sunday or Saturday once I get him back is it okay to hold him until we h...
Without a court order, either of you can hold your child. It probably won't count against you as long as you file for custody.See question
can i take my husband to court for support financially, he move out on me and we have loans i took out while we were together. i am working but it is very hard for me to pay all the bills. thank you
You have several options. You can file for spousal support and, if he earns more than you do, you can expect to receive some support. You can also file for divorce and receive support through the divorce process and get the the debt split between the two of you. Speak to an attorney to go over the details of your case.See question
We been separated five to six different times and take no more I became a Muslim for months ago I'm unhappy he's unhappy we live in the same house
If your question is a request for a do it yourself divorce kit, no one will be able to help you on Avvo. There are too many issues possible in a divorce. You have not stated anything relating to equitable distribution, for example. You both live in the same house, so how will you both separate?I suggest that you think long and hard about doing this yourself.See question
My sons father has visitation every other weekend from Friday at 7:30 p.m. through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. We are to meet at my local police station. His mother is the visitation supervisor. The thing is he hasn't been showing up only his mother. She ...
If this has been going on for a long time, and if the father really has never seen his son at all, then you might. But think about whether you want to deny your son his paternal grandmother. Really? Isn't she an important part of his life, as much as his father? You want to cut that off, even though it is only on every other weekend? Reconsider this.See question
Prior to my husband and I getting divorced, can we arrange by setting up a trust for our children that the house be transferred solely to them upon either one of our deaths. So that none of the future spouses have any rights to the property?
You can do that, but you would then have no power to sell the house. If you did, then it would be possible to sell and give the money to a new spouse. Also, if you needed a reverse mortgage or a second mortgage and it was in trust, you might have difficulty finding a lender.
I suggest that you consider alternate possibilities. For example, if your purpose is to keep the children in the house until they are ready to go to college, put off any sale and allow costs for repairs to be recouped by the person incurring the debt. You could also set up a situation where one of you buys out the other over time. Any number of possibilities exist. You need to consult a good attorney.See question

PA will take jurisdiction only after Indiana has relinquished it. I suggest you speak to an Indiana lawyer, not a PA lawyer, because you will have to go through your original state first in the process of getting jurisdiction switched.See question
