I commend you for your positive attitude heading into a difficult situation. Parents should always encourage their children to spend as much time as possible with the other parent. To do anything less than that is to knowingly harm your own children. There is a wealth of scientific research on this subject, but it sounds like you are already ahead of the game.
Your husband should be prepared to assist you with the work of child rearing moving forward. That may mean sharing parenting time with you equally so that you are freed up to pursue employment, it may mean that he pays you some appropriate amount of child support, or it may be a combination of both. This will depend largely on your respective incomes. Make no mistake though - he is going to have to help you one way or another moving forward, as the stay-at-home parent model does not work post-divorce.
The divorce process almost never produces good financial results for either side. The messier it becomes, the worse off you both will be. Your energies are better spent seeking job training, educational financial assistance, and other programs that will assist you to become financially independent. You both need to work together toward a better outcome for all.
Don't rule out mediation/arbitration as a possibility that may help you resolve any differences that may arise. Best of luck to you!See question

Your best bet is probably to seek enforcement in the court that entered the order, which you state is in New York. You do not specify in which state your ex-husband currently resides. If he is still in New York, you should definitely hire a New York attorney to handle this for you.See question
I was driving home from out of time, and i was pulled over for speeding. The officer falsified the citation.
If you were driving 14 or fewer miles per hour over the limit, there would be no points and the offense would not be reported to DDS. If you were driving faster, you may be eligible to plead NOLO, which would keep points off your license, but the offense would still be reported to DDS. If you simply pay the fine without entering a NOLO plea, it will be considered a guilty plea by DDS and DDS will assess points.See question
My boyfriend received a ticket for expired registration on my car will my medical problem have any impact on the ticket since it was a true accident and the registration was taken care of the very next morning after
The fact that you have taken care of the problem already will likely have the most effect on the ticket. You'll want to make sure to investigate what effect the charge might have on your license, if any. Consult a knowledgeable local attorney on that.
Unfortunately, the circumstances that caused you not to renew your registration on time will probably have much less impact on the ticket. Most of the time that something like this happens, there are usually life circumstances that come into play. Very few people deliberately fail to renew their registration. The good faith you've shown in fixing the problem immediately is much more compelling.See question

Depending on the wording of the settlement agreement that the parties signed, he may very well be entitled to nothing. Typically settlement agreements are worded so that they do not have to be incorporated into a final decree to be enforced. If a party dies prior to the completion of the divorce, the agreement will be enforced as a contract, rather than a court order.
Many other factors may come into play in this case. You should speak to an attorney to make sure all bases are covered. Good luck to you!See question
My landlord came and asked if we would move out so her daughter could move in. (Daughter is in and out of jail. And is out. For now..) we pay rent on time, no issues with neighbors, no issues with landlord. Our lease isn't up until May 2017. Nothi...
Assuming that you have a written lease, that your lease extends through May of 2017, that you have faithfully paid your rent and have not otherwise breached your lease (e.g. other issues with neighbors or landlord), and that your lease does not contain a clause that allows your landlord to terminate early, you probably have good grounds to complain here. The only way to be sure is to consult with an attorney, who will be able to carefully review your lease and hear the full story of what has happened from you. Good luck!See question

Borrower claims she is unable to refinance due to low income. I cosigned 10 years ago with the understanding that in two years my name would be off. How can I get my name off is she is uncooperative.
My colleagues are correct. One thing I would add is that this sounds like it may have been a divorce situation. Often, when parties divorce while holding a real estate loan in both names, one party will be ordered to assume responsibility for the loan and to hold the second party harmless for the liability thereon. However, this does not have the effect of removing the second party's name from the loan, as a divorce court lacks the power to do that.
Often in these situations the first party will be ordered to refinance the loan into his or her name only (often within the two years you mentioned applied to your situation). When accomplished, this refinance has the effect of removing the second party's name from the loan. If the first party fails or refuses to do this, the first party may be held in contempt of court if the failure or refusal is found to be willfull. In other words, the first party could have done it, but just didn't.
If this was in fact a divorce situation, you may have this remedy. However, you should consult with an attorney to determine whether litigation would make sense under your specific circumstances.See question
I am currently going through a divorce, and my soon to be exhusband has turned this into a custody battle. He is requesting 50/50 custody and for me to pay him child support. Our son is only 9 mths old and he has spent very little time with him si...
The short answer to your question is yes, it is possible to restrict parenting time in a variety of ways when the circumstances of the case make such restrictions necessary and appropriate. However, these circumstances will have to be proved.
Make sure you understand how custody law operates when forming your expectations. For example, you state that your husband has "turned this into a custody battle" by requesting 50/50 custody. Under the law, neither one of you has a superior claim to custody over the other, so if he is suggesting 50/50 custody and you are against that, a very good argument can be made that it is you who are turning the case into a custody battle. The Court will be wary of both sides' suggestions for custody while keeping an eye on how child support will be affected. There is always the potential that one or both sides are primarily concerned with money, instead of the best interests of the child.
This case may be decided on your husband's level of involvement. If the Court concludes that he was voluntarily uninvolved and at times violent, you may get what you seek. If the Court instead concludes that you excluded him from seeing his child and fabricated charges of violence against him, you may lose custody altogether.
You are in a very precarious situation, and you need the services of an experienced family law attorney. Good luck to you!See question
