My wife's divorce attorney constantly bombards me with legal filings and threatening letters via email. She has repeatedly done this the night before hearings. I've consistently reminded her we have no consent to electronic service. She does se...
You are actually better off getting advance notice from wife's attorney - you will know what she is up to earlier than you would know if she only sent her documents and letters via snail mail, giving you more time to figure out what to do about those things. California is not governed by ABA's code of conduct. Better for you to use the advance notice to your own benefit.See question
Court papers state ex is too drop and pick our son up at my house. He states that his license is suspended and can no longer pick and drop off, that I now need to do it. Am I in contempt if I don't drop son off for his weekends?
No, but it probably would be a good idea for you to support the relationship between dad and son by providing transportation while dad's license is suspended if the distance isn't too great. Dad does have another possible choice - to have a friend or significant other pick up and drop son off for dad's weekends. See if you can work it out with dad, so relationship between dad and son doesn't suffer.See question
Our divorce was final in May. He got married in June,. Our house is paid for. The divorce agreement was; he had until the end of august to get a loan then the house would go up for sale. He could not get a loan because of bad credit. I live in the...
Unless you can afford to buy him out, there isn't anything that I can think of to allow you to stay in the home (after it is sold), unless he agrees otherwise and both of you stipulate to modify the judgment to allow you to stay in the house and make its payments. Otherwise, the Judgment calls for the house to be sold if he couldn't get a loan. If you and he make the agreement that I proposed, have an experienced family law attorney prepare, circulate for signatures, and file the Stipulation modifying the judgment. Good luck.See question
We are now living together again ,the separation didn't last long but what's my status as a woman, am I living with him with no material benefit, he took all properties and I signed.
Were you just separated, or was there a Legal Separation case which resulted in a Judgment of Legal Separation? In either event, you should file and serve a divorce case to ultimately become single once again. Why stay married to him?See question
Thinking about getting a divorce and wondering what my rights are. I have been married for 16 years with one daughter who is 12 years old.
It would depend upon whether there was a mortgage or other obligations attached to the house that was/were paid with community funds, and whether your husband improved the house with community funds (his income during marriage is community property). If either or both those things occurred, the community would have some interest in the house. You would best retain an experienced family law attorney to advise and represent you in your divorce.See question
the judge said i MUST BE working since i was historically working and that I handled most of my case. I dont know the basis of his decision while i last worked 15 years ago and my health conditions changed since. also i had attorneys and i did n...
You might try to find employment in a job that your condition allows you to work, even if it is for minimum wages. By all means, make a good faith effort. You didn't identify your health condition that you and your doctor claim affects your ability to work, so I can't determine what influenced the judge to make his orders. Evidently, the judge was not convinced that you are unable to work. This should not be a DIY project. You would best retain an experienced family law attorney to advise and represent you. You might go to a vocational expert to determine what field(s) you are able to work in (even with your condition - whatever it is), and what education you might need to become qualified in those fields.See question
Married with 6 kids. I want to divorce my husband who is a drug and alcohol user. I want him out of my house but her wont leave. What do I do
Divorce him. However, community property gets divided 50/50, so unless there are other community assets that he can get, the house will need to be sold and its proceeds divided. There is a possibility that you could get a "Duke Order" deferring sale of the house until your youngest child graduates from high school. You can't get him kicked out before the divorce is over unless he has committed Domestic Violence or Abuse. Retain an experienced family law attorney to advise and represent you.See question
Would it be a potential conflict of interest if the attorney in question also represented the estranged wife of the the boyfriend of the estranged husband with whom the attorney is sleeping
It is unethical for a lawyer to sleep with his/her client at any time during the proceedings. After they are over and the lawyer has withdrawn, it is acceptable. The other relationship probably has no conflict of interest with regard to the law, but could create a ton of discomfort.See question

Unfortunately, you and your son are not entitled to any such notification. She is entitled to her privacy.See question
We are in the middle of a very bad divorce. We have a home we purchased 5 years ago, but the mortgage is only under my wife's name. She is threatening to put the house under her mom's name so I don't get half of the house. Is this possible for her...
Why was the home purchased with a mortgage only in your wife's name. I suspect that you must have signed a quitclaim deed to your wife, and that title was transferred to your wife's name only. If that occurred, you may well have converted the house to her separate property and gave her the power to sell or transfer the house. Your options could be to file a divorce or legal separation case against her (actually, you indicate that you are in the middle of a divorce), and to have her served. If she filed the divorce, or if you filed and served her, automatic restraining orders on the 2nd page of the Summons become effective, restraining her from selling or transferring the house. You could file a Lis Pendens as well, if you specifically identified the house by common and legal description in your Petition or Response, and the Lis Pendens would become a cloud on title. In addition, you could file an Ex Parte Application for specific restraining orders to restrain your wife from selling the house. You would best retain an experienced family law attorney to advise and represent you.See question
