I received the mediator's recommendations to the court for our custody/visitation. Before receiving the letter I had already expressed how biased I felt she was during the mediation session. I went first then my husband and she allowed me to come ...
The mediators recommendation is just that, a recommendation, it is not an order. You still have an opportunity to fight this with the court. I agree with my colleague that you really do need to have an experienced family law attorney help you with this. Good luck.See question
Ex filed for divorce on May 5th'15. left the house on June 15th,'15. I have been paying her voluntary spousal support and child as per a dissomaster calculation. Formal stipulation for spousal and child support payments went into effect in August ...
I agree with my colleagues as well. If there's no court order then it is not deductible. You might want to consult with a tax attorney to see if there are any loopholes about which we are unaware, but I don't think there are.See question
There's no coustdy order between me daughters mom and I. She left state with out telling me, and no lives there? What do I do
I agree with my colleague. First thing tomorrow morning you need to go down to the courthouse, go to the family law self-help center, explain to them what is going on and they will help you fill out to get you in front of a judge. If you can't afford an attorney I strongly recommend you retain one first thing tomorrow morning.See question

These are very difficult cases. If you can afford it, you need to hire an experienced family law attorney, someone who has done a lot of work in custody and move away cases. You certainly can go into court to try to prevent this. It's not easy and it is complicated and you have to act quickly. If you cannot afford an attorney to represent you in the case, try to buy at least an hours worth of time so you can sit down and discuss this in detail with somebody. Finally, if worse comes to worse, you can go to the family law self-help center in your courthouse and explain to them what's going on and they will help you fill out the forms to get in front of a judge. They do not charge for that. Good luck with this.See question
I am considering to get divorce from my husband, and I prefer not to see him anymore.
If your divorce is uncontested, meaning essentially that you and your husband agree on everything, you don't need to go to court at all. However, if there are disputes in your case and evidence is required, that evidence is typically in the form of testimony by the parties, one of whom is you.
I always encourage my clients to come to every court appearance because it makes a statement to the judge that you are active and involved in what's going on, it is far more difficult for a judge, who is after all only human, to make a ruling against someone's interest when they're looking them in the eye, and of course it is always a good idea to be on hand so your lawyer can ask you questions if things develop during a court hearing that are unexpected.
I completely understand your desire to no longer see or interact with your husband, and I assure you that you will not be forced to do that just because you come to court. Your lawyer will be there, you can bring a support person (or persons) to help you, and no one is going to force you to interact with your husband. You should also talk to your lawyer about this. Good luck with this.See question
My ex hasn't paid child support in full for almost a year and hasn't paid any for six months. He has not reported any changes to the courts or petition to change orders. If he doesn't have have a job does he still owe back child support? He's clai...
He has the ability to request a modification due to his change and financial circumstances, but until such time as he actually goes to court and gets an order to modify support, he will continue to accrue support arrears plus interest at 10%.See question

Hi , I have bought a Perfume with the amount of $110 from Macys for my wife On Valentine day. The lady offered me free gift wrap it and while she was doing i was busy shopping another item. She put it in the bag and I didn't notice how she g...
No, you cannot sue Macy's under the circumstances. Also, if this is what drove your wife out of the house, it seems to me you have way bigger problems than giftwrapping. If you want to save your marriage, I suggest you see if you can get into marriage counseling. If not, I suggest you go see and experienced family law attorney.See question
We want to do foster care but unfortunately my husband has a DUI we let them know. Now we are waiting for repone but it's taking too long. It's been almost two months. How long do they take?? I want to start thing moving again but I can't
I suppose the easiest thing to do is call and ask for an update on the status of the application. I cannot say if a dui automatically disqualifies one from being a foster parent but I would certainly hope not. I have reclassified your question under adoption as I believe lawyers in that field will be able to answer this question better than me.See question

There are too many factors involved to accurately predict what like her spousal support will be. I suggest you consult with an experienced family law attorney for an hour or so. That person should be able to give you a ballpark number.See question
