I own 1/2 interest in my deceased fathers property with my deceased brothers widow. We were in agreement that I would buy her portion. She now refuses to talk with me and had filed for petition for partition through her lawyer. I am willing to neg...
This is a very fact specific question and so nobody will really be able to give you much useful advice without digging into the specifics of the case.
Do make sure that you file a timely answer to the petition, and you can try to negotiate a settlement while the case is pending. In the end, if your sister-in-law seeks a sale you could also make bids on the property.See question
Who ever took out a loan in my name online used my ss number and dl
If they call again tell them that you dispute the validity of the debt and not to call you, or anyone else such as family or employers, about it again.
Then, other than filing a civil lawsuit against you, they cannot continue to contact you without risking giving you the ability to sue them under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
If they do file a civil suit against you, you can put them to their burden of proving that you took out the loan as opposed to identify theft or fraud, and have an attorney review all of the circumstances of your case to see if you have any potential counterclaims against them.See question
The primary caregiver of the child has partial custody and took the child out of state because they didnt have a job or any income coming in and the spouse to the parent was offered a job. The primary caregiver did not notify the other parent beca...
Your question is actually a bit more complicated that it appears. You need to take a copy of your custody order to an attorney so they can see how the custody was set up by the Court. If there have been any hearings since the original custody order, you should take copies of any pleadings or orders in those subsequent actions to the attorney as well.See question
Our son graduated high school and is turning 18 on September 13. I send a check to child support services and I am current on payments. When should I stop sending the monthly check and do I need to notify anyone?
There is an affidavit procedure you can use when child support is to end, though often it is worth the extra steps to file a motion with the Court asking it to enter an order terminating the support obligation. If the other parent will sign off on the order, it would be an easy process.
Some of he advantages to filing the motion is that some employers don't want to stop income withholding without a court order, and the order can cite that there aren't any arrears in support (so you don't have to worry about a claim later on that while the current support obligation terminated, there were missed payments, share of medical expenses that weren't paid, etc.See question
My aunt and uncle have Co guardianship of my child. I had tried to call and text and they would not answer so I showed up to try to see my son. My son was standing in the window saying mommy mommy mommy and wanted to see me. My uncle then refused ...
Depends on what the order of the Court states. Sometimes the Court's order will set out visitation rights, but if it doesn't then there isn't anything stopping the guardian from denying visitation if they believe that is best for the child (or in some cases the Court may specifically order that the guardian is not to allow the biological parent to have contact with the child).
If the order does not address visitation, you can speak with an attorney to explore filing a motion with the Court to have a visitation order put into place.See question
Family member attained Permanent Custody when mother was deemed unfit during court hearing - note she did not lose her parental rights....Custodian/Parent are blood related and live in different states.
Under Arkansas law (other states may have different law), if someone was appointed guardian over a minor child, that guardianship will continue for as long as it is needed - - - -such as because the natural parents are no long unfit or the child has reached the age of 18, or if the Court substitutes someone else as the guardian.
A minor does not get to chose with whom they live, though if there is active litigation going on a judge *might* give some consideration to any wishes expressed by the child, but will still enter orders that the judge thinks would be in the best interests of the child even if that isn't what the child wants.See question
I have week to week joint custody with my ex wife. We divorced last year. She remarried and her husband got military orders to move to Florida in December. Our son is 12 will be 13 in January. He told me he wants to live with his mom and spend hi...
There are too many case specific factors involved in a case like yours for anyone to be able to say whether or not there is "good" chance or not of being awarded custody as it will ultimately come down to what is in the best interests of the child, however, the Court may certainly may consider that the mother is moving instead of the father and if you are exercising true joint custody the presumption in favor of the custodial parent being allowed to relocate will not apply.
The judge could consider the wishes of the child when making a decision if it believes that the child's wishes are based upon a sufficient amount of maturity, but is not bound by those wishes if it thinks another arrangement would be in the best interests of the child.See question

As Mr. Dowden stated, sometimes you will be required to turn yourself in before a FTP/FTA can be resolved, but often arrangements can be made so that you can turn yourself in at a time shortly before the Court can hear the case so you can be processed and then brought before the Court relatively quickly -- which sure beats being arrested on a Friday night and having to wait for a hearing.See question

In guardianship actions, a finding of unfitness makes it much more difficult to terminate the guardianship later if you wish to regain custody of your child.
You'll need an attorney to review the case and what you signed, to assert your claim to establish paternity and custody or visitation. If the maternal grandparents agree that the temporary guardianship should be terminated or at least not made permanent, that would make things much easier for you.See question
I live in Arkansas on the Oklahoma border and my ex wife took it opon herself to put our child in a Oklahoma school she has custody but I don't think she can do that.
If your ex-wife has primary physical custody, it will likely be an issue of the attendance zone of the school, which would be more concerned with where the child/custodial parent lives rather than where you live.See question
