I was just doing genealogy research, and I found that a stranger had made a page with 3 generations of my grandmother's family on it. The page is on a genealogy website run by a certain church that is known for genealogy and for baptizing the dead...
Somehow your question got categorized as a zoning & land use question by the AVVO computer. I will move it to a more likely category so you'll get answers.See question
We live in PA not NJ. She was with friends who had a past with drugs, they were pulled over and because she hasn't been in trouble she said she took the bag of herion and the needles and hid them on her. After the officer found it all my daughter ...
She needs to find a criminal defense lawyer in New Jersey asap. Do not go into court without one.
Also, I would consider contacting AVVO and asking for this post to be deleted as it's potentially incriminating.
Please note that the AVVO computer misclassified your question as a Family Law question, so it's being shown to Pennsylvania Family Lawyers. I'll change it to Criminal Defense so that it will come to the attention of criminal lawyers, but it still will go out to PA lawyers because of the residence you put in your question. You need to talk to attorneys who practice in NJ. And really you should have the question deleted and not write any more in public forums on the internet where everyone can see. Good luck to your daughter.See question
No children, no spousal support. Soft plan to place house on market and simply split any profit after all fees, etc. Have essentially lived separate lives for almost 10 years.
Hello. I think you misunderstand how this Question and Answer page works. This is for answering general legal questions.We are not permitted to answer requests for individual work on these pages. If you want to contact an attorney individually about a divorce, you need to contact them privately by message, phone, or email. Please note that you should get more than a "soft plan" regarding your marital property. You should have a written property settlement agreement so that there aren't problems later.See question
I recently received a payment from a settlement from a law suit that started 5 years before I even met my current husband. There have been some recent tough times in our marriage and divorce has come up in conversation. He stated that he will no...
Attorney Shah gave you a very good answer. I agree that it's possible to exclude the settlement from marital property, but a court may look at it in terms of what type of resources you have to live on going forward. So if you do go to court to get a settlement ordered, that would be taken into consideration. In the meantime, make sure you keep any funds in an account in your separate name. Don't put it into a joint account or you could complicate matters for yourself. Please do yourself a favor and get a consult with an experience divorce attorney so you can prepare properly for what's next.See question
I was raped by my son's father (who was a close person to my step father so he knew a little about my life). I never pressed charges because I was young and scared. While pregnant I met my ex boyfriend and we had a relationship and even proceeded ...
I'm not convinced that you couldn't petition for a change of name for your son. It's not the same as an adoption, obviously, and as long as the biological father isn't around to object, I don't know why you couldn't do it... However, this is just off the top of my head, and research would be necessary to confirm my guess. Contact an attorney who does name changes and get independent advice.See question
My ex is back with his sons mother and she is asking I take all pictures down from my social media accounts of her son, I did as she asked but left the pictures where you cannot see his face, you can really only see the back of his head. She clai...
AVVO's computer classified this question as a Family Law question. I'm going to change the practice area to Privacy so you are more likely to get more answers. To me, it sounds like she just doesn't want you to have any association with their son -- I'm not sure what damage is done by posting a photo showing the back of his head, but someone who practices in that area of the law can better tell you. Good luck with this.See question
I am staying separated from my wife since September 2009. She had filed for a divorce and support in November 2009. I am paying support( child+spousal) to date. Now I wish to followup with the court for a divorce. What are my options? Is the divor...
If the divorce action was filed in 2009, and it is still on the books (i.e. it didn't lapse due to inactivity), then you don't have to file for divorce all over again. You can just proceed with the case that was already filed. It's easy enough to check the status of the divorce case. If it's a Chester County divorce, you can call the Prothonotary's office to find out the case standing. Or check the online docket. Same thing in other counties.
If the case is still considered active by the court, you can do a 3301(d) divorce and it will go through as long as there are no equitable distribution (financial or property) claims by either of you against the other. If the case is no longer active, then there are a couple of options. First thing to do is find out the status.See question
My uncle is the executor of my grandparents' estate and has been absolutely awful throughout the entire situation. He has been treating family members unfairly in regards to distribution of the inheritance and make inflammatory accusations against...
There should be no dispute over the outcome of the estate. Anyone who is being treated unfairly, if they're not getting what they are entitled to from the estate. should hire an attorney to represent their interests. The executor has to carry out the instructions in the will. (If there's no will, then the intestate laws rule.) Nobody can turn your uncle into a nicer person, but he would be in big trouble if he used a personal grudge to change how the estate is distributed, and he could be removed as executor for it.See question
My husband will not allow our son to leave with me. My husband is abusive.
If your county has a domestic violence center, please contact them for assistance with this. One of your options is to file a protection from abuse case. That could make your husband leave the house, and then you can stay there with your son, and your husband would have to stay away from you and the house for the length of time specified. You could file for custody during that safe time while he's away.
Or, you can just leave with your son and then file for custody. Good luck to you. Please consult with a private local family law attorney or the domestic violence center as soon as you can.See question
In other words, he only has relatives by marriage: nieces, nephews and their offspring. Would these be valid heirs according to the intestate succession law? Thank you.
As you can see from the statute, the net gets cast pretty wide to find relatives. There are heir search firms that specialize in finding next-of-kin in these situations.See question
