I have a Default Judgement against my ex husband in Cabarrus County. Now in Davidson County, my ex is found incompetence and his wife - who has signed all checks in 2015 is now his guardian. He now owes me $14,000.00 in back alimony. He also owns several properties, a timeshare and owns company. A hearing for permanent Guardian is scheduled for 4/11/17 - should I go.
Yes. You won't be able to enforce your Judgment at that hearing, but you probably learn things that will help you enforce your judgment (i.e., the location and value of the property he owns), so that you can then execute a writ to collect on your judgment. You'll also learn who to serve when it comes time to serve him and/or his guardian regarding the writ.

The answer(s) provided in this forum should be considered general information and are not legal advice. Only after a thorough personal consultation could specific legal advice be given. Viewing this information is not intended to create, and does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. To enter into an attorney-client relationship, you and I would need to consult in person and form a mutually agreeable written contract of engagement. The attorney-client relationship would be formed once the agreed upon initial retainer fee has been paid. The answer(s) provided in this forum is intended to educate you and to point out some of the issues you may need to raise in a consultation with a lawyer of your choosing who is appropriately competent in the field of law that your question concerns and who is duly licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where you live and/or where the events giving rise to your question occurred. You should not take any action that might affect your claim(s) without first seeking the professional opinion of a licensed attorney. There are often strict deadlines for filing suit, responding to a suit or making an appeal and you need to personally consult with an attorney to make sure that you understand and meet those deadlines.
