In 2015, my daughter told myself, a nurse and her teacher that her dad had been sexually molesting her. In an effort to get her help, I brought her to an ER for an exam immediately after she told me. My ex became enraged and filed for custody wit...
Burt's correct. Let me explain why he's right. A motion to reconsider is a creature of caselaw, but can only be filed within 30 days of the judgment you want considered. So yes, your motion automatically fails, and nothing you say to the judge can change that.
Now there's not enough information in this question to tell you what to file. Maybe a motion to modify, or maybe a motion to enforce, or maybe something else. Doing this on your own will only result in wasted court appearances, which will end up frustrating you to the point where you stop coming to court.

I evidently did'nt explain myself by the response I have gotten already. I have lost my home. Due to hardship the taxes were behind but had kept in contact with buyers until now and Clerk . I called they gave me a final redemption date and sent me...
The facts are a bit confusing, it appears your taxes were sold. If so, you have to pay them, plus interest, or the purchaser can file a petition for a tax deed. Meaning they get the house. Aside from bankruptcy, which would likely result in loss of the home anyway, it is what it is.See question

Biological father has not spoken to his children in 7 months and has not seen them in two years. In order to regain visitation, he must undergo court-ordered therapy with his children. Two years ago, instead of completing therapy, he relocated ove...
Maybe. I've done these before, and it really is a case-by-case basis. First, if he's served, he may not do anything. Most don't. But if he does, you have to show, under this fact pattern, a failure to maintain a reasonable degree of interest, concern or responsibility as to the child's welfare. (See 750 ILCS 50/1 et. seq,). That's very fact dependent, and a GAL will be appointed to prepare a report.
In either event, you'll want to talk to a family law attorney in your area for specific guidance.See question
This is for my dear friend. He has no idea what to do.
Aside from filing for divorce, what's done, is done. We no longer have grounds for divorce in Illinois, and the state's attorney generally does not prosecute estranged spouses anymore.See question
in a divorce. my ex has agreed to purchase me out of the home. am i able to to retrieve the money immediately before the martial settlement is completed?
That will be up to you and your ex. The nice thing about settlements, is that you two come up with the terms. Hopefully (s)he doesn't breach the agreement. Talk to a family law attorney in your area for specific guidance.See question

I have not received child support in 19 years, there was a court order in 1978 stating that I was to get $100.00 per week; I only got $200.00.
I agree with the other answers, HOWEVER, just because you have a million dollar judgment, doesn't mean you'll see anything close to that.
First you have to know where he/she lives, if they're out of state, honestly, the ability to collect may not be there. Second, if they're retired, unless it's a pretty sweet retirement package, not much you can grab. Best bet may be to locate any property they own and attached a lien.

In Illinois, assuming there's no lien on the file, you are entitled to a copy of it. The sole exception to the lien is if it's a domestic relations case, then 508(f) requires turnover within 30 days upon demand.See question
Over the last year, my boyfriend and I have been furnishing our apartment we share together. He was present or approved every piece of furniture purchased, however it was always my credit card used for the purchase. He has now decided to end our r...
This issue was recently addressed by the Illinois Supreme Court, although in the context of co-habitating parties over a LONG period of time. The short answer is that you are on your own UNLESS you have something from him indicating he agreed to reimburse you. Likely it was all done orally, and it'll be your word against his - any "tie" goes in favor of the defendant.
Sorry this happened. Best of luck.See question
