Ive paid a company to file my divorce $700 but I'm now being told that did not include the filing and publication to run it through the newspaper. This company also included in those fees power of attorney. Which I'm now thinking wasn't a good idea.
You have likely been ripped off by criminals as only a lawyer can file for you. Hire one, and do report the criminals to the state bar and your county DA. Very few cases are done by publication, and that is not an uncontested divorce.See question

Both of you should STOP calling. Unless they previously sued and got a judgment against you, or you made payments far more recent than 2004, this is way past the statute of limitations. If you get anything in writing, see a lawyer ASAP as this is either a scam or a collector in likely violation of the law. Things yousay could work against you, so do not call them.See question
I've been separated from my wife since 2007 I want to file for divorce and I want to know can she still sue me for alimony
You asked one question. I'll answer four that should be asked.
1. Can she? Yes.
2. Will she? Who knows?
3. Will a court award it? It would be very unusual in this fact pattern, but we lack the facts to know all the circumstances and predict an outcome.
4. Do you need a lawyer? Absolutely.See question

I'm sorry for the loss you've experienced. Now the bad news: unless you have legitimated the child (and signing the birth certificate is NOT legitimization), you have no rights and are not a legal parent. You will have to incur significant expense, quickly, to address things. Absent legitimization, that must be pursued in the courts and you should not attempt it without counsel. Even with it, you will need some type court proceeding to see your child,or get custody. Time is your enemy here. Act quickly, and be prepared to use loans, family and friends to raise legal funds.See question

Immigration status doesn't have much effect on the case. The minor children do, With children involved, he definitely needs a lawyer. How simple or complex the case will be, and the cost and time frame, will depend mostly on whether the parties agree on support, custody, visitation, debts, assets and other issues. Your relationship with him may add practical complications depending on her reaction to it.See question
Had a personal injury claim in from auto accident wasn't my fault did not want to go through with it cause the stress time an hassle
If you were hurt, it is medically and legally very foolish not to followup with medical care, but, no, ifyou get no settlement there isn't Medicaid reimbursement. The reason it is foolish is (1) you may end up with untreated pain and injuries, and not knowuntil it is too late, and (2) you may be losing money - quite often lawyers negotiate Medicaid liens awayor lower.
Again, if you're actually hurt, don't skimp on care.See question

You have a lawyer who knows your case. No one here has seen the pleadings or facts, so frankly seeking a wild guess online is useless. Discuss your concerns with your attorney. If you disagree, plan to spend a couple hours in a detailed consult for a 3nf opinion from someone who can read the whole file and get details, and either keep or change lawyers after that.See question

Your homeowner's or renter's insurance will likely defend this case, so be sure to call them and don't discuss the case with the other side.. I lack enough information to tell you a likely outcome, but this is why you get insurance. They'll take care of the lawyers, claim, etc.See question

Unless he has legitimated the children or was married to the mother he has no rights at all, and regardless, verbal agreements don't matter. He needs a lawyer (likely for the legitimization I suspect hasn't happened). At that point he can seek parenting time and a court will also decide support and other issues.See question
