I filled for a uncontested divorce on 11-17-16 my wife reviewed the papers signed and gave them back to me. We agreed that I will continue to pay child care for our 4 small kids which is $1325 a month, I offered to pay $1400 a month but somewhere ...
I agree with my colleague and it is time to find an attorney. You definitely should put the purchase of the house on sold - do NOT close on that purchase before talking to an attorney.
I can hear you saying that you just do not want this to be a drawn out process and I definitely understand that. But, the reality is that she is contesting what was filed AND she has hired an attorney. You just have to respond to the situation accordingly and hire an attorney to assist you. There are no other good options here. Your 4 kids are involved so just make sure to do this all right! Please speak with an attorney ASAP.See question
It appears that GA code allows children over 14 to have say in custody but no where can I find visitation rulings. I have a 16 and 17 year old. I am considering divorce. My children and I are all very aware of my husband's terrible temper. He ...
I agree with my colleagues on both fronts. (1) Children are children and, until they reach the age of 18, they do not have a say in whether they visit with their parent. (2) The language that Ms. Lennon referenced is language that you and your Husband would agree upon. Another possibility is that, with the proper evidence/proof, you could request that your Husband's parenting time with the children be supervised. You may want to consult with an attorney to discuss what is going on, what the specific concerns are, etc.See question
HAD A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST HIM, IT EXPIRED I DIDN'T RENEW IT BECAUSE HE WAS NO LONGER IN THE COUNTRY. I'M LOOKING OVER THE DIVORCE PAPERS, AND SEE THAT VISITATION REQUESTS MUST BE FILLED, I DON'T EVEN KNOW FOR SURE WHERE HE HIS IN MEXICO, BUT...
I agree with my colleague and you need to set up a consultation with an attorney. An attorney needs to ask you a lot of questions (like the ones my colleague asked) and review the Orders in place. Unless the Order says otherwise, you do not have an obligation to pay for the kids to travel to see their Father.See question
As a non-custodial father, I was granted the usually bi-weekly weekend visits, plus an additional day on a monthly basis. Therefore, I was also granted the opportunity to have a babysitter on that additional day, which occurs on a Friday preceding...
I agree with my colleagues and an attorney cannot answer this question for you on Avvo. We need to review the Parenting Plan and other documents (like this private order that you referenced??). She may be in contempt but she also may not be.
From your post, it does sound like you have talked about this babysitter to the Mother before and maybe, in the past, you have said something about the babysitter that was not favorable. While I understand that a contempt is a contempt, there is the principle of the thing, etc., I have to ask if this particular battle is the one worth filing a contempt over.See question
My husband and I are about to go through a divorce. He is supposedly throwing away and burning mine and my daughter's personal belongings. We have marital property, my name is not on the dead or loan. I have told him many times I would come and ge...
My colleagues are correct and you need to file that divorce and stop waiting! Before a divorce is filed, there are no real rules in place other than criminal laws. You could argue that he destroyed your property to the police but, chances are, you do not get very far with that. You need to file for divorce so that the Standing Order goes in place and sets some guidelines on how to interact and issues like this regarding property and insurance. It is definitely time to speak with an attorney and get that divorce filed.See question
We're going through a divorce and about to sit down and go over separation of assets. We're hoping for non-contested. Been married almost 27 years.
I think it is fantastic that you and your husband are working to resolve your divorce amicably! It will save a lot of money and headache to be cordial. With that being said, I would still advise that you consult with an attorney regarding the division that you and your husband are discussing and that you have an attorney review the documentation that will be filed. You and your husband can agree to anything you want BUT it matters that you understand what you agreed to so that you can each walk away from this marriage feeling that you actually received what you agreed to versus feeling like you were taken advantage of, that you unknowingly gave too much away, etc.
To your question, IRAs can usually be divided/transferred with a call to the account holder (Edward Jones, Schwab, etc.) and telling them that you want to divide/transfer an account and move the funds into someone else's name. They can usually do it over the phone and can walk you through that process.
401k's are different - they require a Court Order to be divided.
The father is trying to get full custody of our son although he was charged with aggravated assault prior to the divorce issue occurring
I agree with my colleagues - you are headed to a hearing. It is not clear how long your case has been pending, whether this is a final or temporary hearing, but it is likely that the hearing may address custody of your son. If you do not have an attorney and your Husband does, you should consider hiring an attorney ASAP and as far in advance of a Court date as possible to allow that attorney ample time to prepare.See question
My child was taking away from me by the father and I'm suppose to go to court in a month. But it will come out I'm on methadone. Is that a reason for me to lose custody of my child she is 6. I have two more still in my care.
A Judge is charged with making a custody decision that is in the best interest of the child/children that are related in the case. Many factors go into this decision and your use of methadone is one of those factors.
If you are properly taking methadone under a treatment plan by a physician/medical doctor who is overseeing your care, it will be helpful to provide documentation and/or testimony to the Court about this. You say "it will come out" that you are methadone which makes me think that you have not disclosed this to anyone yet. If you are properly taking it as stated, there is no reason to hide it. On the other hand, if you are somehow abusing methadone or any other drug, this is of course a very different situation.
I would recommend that you consult with an attorney and likely hire one to represent you in this action. There is a pending custody case and your post shows that you have some concerns about your case. It is best for you to speak with an attorney to discuss all of the relevant facts of your situation.See question
It's very long and complicated. My husband of 15 years walked out on his 3 kids and I to work on his new relationship with our sister in law. Before I knew about her, I've been harassed on social media with fake accounts. It has continued now ...
I'm a little confused as to the status of what is going on. Are you still married? If you are still married, it sounds way past time for a divorce...? The harassment and stalking can be addressed as a part of that case. Another concern is that the children are witnessing so much of this!
You mentioned his cp so you may also be divorced already. If so, there may be terms in your Divorce Order that address the stalking and harassment and you could file a contempt action. If there is not, perhaps a restraining/protective Order is necessary.
Regardless of whether divorced yet or not, you should consult with an attorney to discuss how to address and stop this stalking/harassment.See question

I agree with my colleagues - you need to get a lawyer and file for divorce. You have equal rights to your children but, on a practical basis, you are already having a hard time seeing them. As another attorney stated, your divorce is long overdue.See question
