After my divorce my former spouse has failed to comply with the terms of the divorce in terms of her financial obligations. I am paying her support every month as well as child support. If she has failed to comply with the divorce decree would tha...
Unfortunately, no. Apples and oranges. Or in terms of Broncos football, you can't rough the passer just because the other side chopped block. Take a deep breath and re-read the Order. Do EVERYTHING in it as it applies to your obligations. If she's not complying then simply file a contempt or motion to compel and ask for attorney's fees. There's a judge in Denver who frequently says, "His Orders AREN'T suggestions." And he's quick to ask the bailiff to escort the contemnor to the "pokie." Good luck, JohnSee question
I just went through a divorce. My ex and I owned a home together where he still resides. Divorce decree ordered sale of home. When I moved out he changed the locks so I cannot enter and fix the house so we can put it on the market
File a "Forthwith" Contempt motion. You must consult with your husband before this, however. Good luck and try and have a Merry Christmas, JohnSee question
i have been to court for custody of my child. the judge has made his orders. my lawyer has not yet wrote the orders up for the judge to sign. it has been over a month since court. I call and call and leave emails and voicemail for my lawyer but se...
First, I'd like to apologize for this on behalf of our profession. Family Law is incredibly emotional. And it's not fair after you've followed the rules and had a hearing, that the Father isn't also following the rules. What's also incredibly frustrating is your attorney's conduct. However, that said, please take the "high road," and continue to follow the Judge's Order. I suggest that if you like your lawyer, just give him time. Maybe it's just Christmastime. Maybe it's a family emergency. But stay on top of your lawyer, too. If you sense that your lawyer's dodging you, you may want to fire them and write the Orders yourself for the Judge to sign.

I slept with a married woman and she is now pregnant. She is still married and informed me she is moving out of state next week. What can I do to ensure a relationship with the child? I was told I have no legal right to the child as the child is p...
Baloney... you have an absolute right to participate in your child's life. Open a JV or DR case in your respective county and ask for a DNA test, swab you and the baby, once born. Your bigger challenge is the relocation issue. If she does move out-of-state, you'll have to develop a parenting plan that can accommodate both parties. Good luck and congratulations, JohnSee question
I am going thru a divorce. I would like to fire my attorney. We are far into the process, does this put me in the same proposed time limit of the negotiating process or does it start the process all over from the beginning?
The time limit stays the same. However, if you truly need to start over and time to prepare, you can ask the Court for a continuance. They usually grant one for "good cause." Good luck, JohnSee question
I am about to go to pharmacy school to obtain my PharmD. I am a little concerned regarding my criminal history though. I have 2 DWAI's and a deferred felony trespassing charge, which resulted in the case being dismissed. I made some stupid mistak...
There are a lot of moving parts to this one. However, I'm VERY glad that you're being proactive. You NEED to be completely honest with everyone about these disclosures. Have you contact ADAD about this? Have you told your University about this? Do you need to go to therapy? Are you sober? Are you doing random UA's? AA? I assume the felony trespassing charge was picked up while you were drunk. So, I see a theme here. I believe the Board will be more sympathetic if you're actively addressing your alcohol abuse. Finally, you should hire an Attorney who specializes in licensing issues down the road. I know a good one, but would prefer to give you his name off AVVO. Good luck, johnSee question
My self employed ex had to refile his tax returns to qualify for a mortgage refinance.
It depends. Check your Separation Agreement. Your attorneys' should have put in some wording regarding exchanging financials yearly. I would argue, that since we're an equitable state, he'd have an affirmative duty to automatically exchange revisions without a Court Order. If he won't then file a Motion to Compel. Good luck, stay warm, johnSee question
So I got caught. Stealing a shaver for 58$ at Walmart long story short they stopped me at the door said the police were already there they gave me a ticket told me I would revive a recovery packet in 14 days however I'm staying in a hotel and exp...
One of my client's daughter did the same thing. We discussed this with the GAL in a juvenile setting. She said in all the years she's practiced juvenile law, no one's ever been sued. Usually, they contract these out to a boisterous NY lawyer, who will send a nasty demand letter and maybe some harassing phone calls, but that's it. Is it worth an out-of-state lawyer, the time to sue? No. Is it worth the same lawyer to send out hundreds of these letters a week for $250 and hire a telemarketer, just to sit back and collect checks? Hell, yes. Do, however, pay attention to the ticket. Expensive shave! Good luck, JohnSee question
I defended myself in a fight where the person, a passenger in my cab, was the aggressor.
fight it! just like you were protecting yourself and your way of life when someone assaulted you in your cab, now it's time to protect your freedom and good name. hire an attorney who's good in court and take it to trial. many of us offer free consults, which you should take advantage of, good luck, johnSee question
The child support I pay was cut in half by court order due to a granted motion to modify child support. Five months transpired between the filing of my verified motion for a modification and the granting of the order. The order states the change i...
Your question says that you're in El Paso County, so call Child Support Enforcement (CSE) at (719) 457-6331 and ask for your CSE Tech. You'll need your case number or IV-D number handy. Tell them about the reduction. They should be able to look the Judge's Order up online and make the adjustments. Tip: be very nice to your Tech. Leave only one message and follow their voice mail instructions to a "t." They get A LOT of calls. But this should get the job done. Good luck, JohnSee question
