  • Can I live Illinois with my kids

    I broke up with my kids dad we was never married and I have 3 baby and I want to go back home to my family in ohio can I take my kids with out getting in trouble

    Judy’s Answer

    Not enough information is furnished to answer with certainty. However, you are asking for trouble if you just pick up and leave. Consult with a family law attorney (or more than one) in your area before making any decisions. You do not want to move and then be forced to return if the father objects.

    You both need lawyers, not an online Q&A forum. Separate lawyers would be best. You also need to refrain from discussing this matter online or anywhere else in public or even in private except with a lawyer.

  • How do I request or file a purge order. What form do I use?

    I am going to court to collect child support arrears. The arrears are substantial and no child support has been paid in over 2 years.

    Judy’s Answer

    You do not request a purge order. Assuming there is a court order for support, you file a petition for rule. If found in contempt, the court will enter a purge order. You really should discuss this with your former attorney or consult with one or more new ones and hire the one you like the best.

Please consult with one or more estate planning attorneys and hire the one you like the best. Perhaps your property should sloe be p[laced in a separate trust.

  • How is approximate final cost for a DUI attorney for a first offense for a 19 year old?

    First DUI offense sat night for a 19 year old. He lives in his car because he has a lawn care business and works a second job. He is also a student. He lives at home so he drives back and forth to school. He obviously lives in his car.

    Judy’s Answer

    Lawyers and law offices set their own fees. You will have to call around and ask. Spending a lot of time in a car does not mean he lives in it. The message here states that the 19 year old lives at home. Even if he was homeless, that is not relevant to any issue except whether he is indigent. Perhaps the 19 year old will qualify for a PD.

    I got two to ticket from animal control but my d.o.b is incorrect on both of them are they legal tickets or can I get them dismissed

    A wrong birthdate is not a basis for dismissal of the citation. It is a scrivener's error.
