  • I need a divorce

    My spouse is a business owner and I worked for the company, so I would like to know what steps I need to take to ensure my financial security.

    Glen’s Answer

    The sooner you get experienced counsel the better. Omitting that step usually guarantees a bad result.

    Your case can only be uncontested if your souse signs and agrees on every detail. Since she doesn't want a divorce a contested case is likely and you definitely need counsel.

    You will likely have to ask a court to do two things - correct the birth certificate and change his name. You will definitely need counsel as correcting the birth certificate doesn't happen with forms and requires service on the state.

    Glen’s Answer

    The one thing that will make a huge difference is how quickly you get a lawyer so do that immediately even if it means borrowing from family and friends. This will also help you get child support. Things will likely go badly without counsel.

  • What is a trial calendar

    Divorce...child custody...just had mediation after a year of court hearings and both parties didn't reach agreement...now their is this thing called trial calender...what is it? What happens?

    Glen’s Answer

    It means your case may be reached for trial and if you don't even know the simplest terminology you are dangerously under prepared and likely will have a bad and unfixable outcome. You badly need counsel and should borrow from family friends and credit cards to get the lawyer you should have already hired

    Glen’s Answer

    You have a snowball's chance in Hades without counsel so borrow from family and friends to get counsel. Answers can be amended until a pretrial order but that may or may not matter this far into a case.

    Glen’s Answer

    You didn't kidnap the child and he's free to do the same until and unless you get a lawyer and start a divorce. Treat this as an immediate emergency as he has the same rights as you until a judge says otherwise.

  • Is filing bankruptcy good for me..

    I want a new car but my credit is bad. Will filing bankruptcy hurt my chances of getting approved for a auto loan

    Glen’s Answer

    Yes. Some lenders will turn you down and some will charge you higher interest . Whether you should file depends on other facts so meet with a lawyer. The smart move if you are drowning in debt is buy a cheap used car for cash.

    Glen’s Answer

    Get a lawyer yesterday . You can go to jail for bigamy. Your new "husband" is not your husband. And if you're pregnant the man you tried to divorce is the legal father unless a court says otherwise. You can expect to pay significant legal fees and cannot fix this without counsel. I am sad to say you created the mess by trying to be your own lawyer and not doing even minimal research into the process . Don't repeat the mistake and hire counsel in the next day or two. Your non-husband also needs a lawyer if he wants to claim parental rights.
