Q: 

Louisiana Child Overnight Vistiation to Non-Custodial Parent

A:  I am by no means an attorney but I have similar challenges with my ex and can offer you only my opinion. If it was me personally, I wouldn't chance my childrens well being by allowing this without first attempting supervised visits. How are you going to feel if you allow this and something happens to your children. Yes you have instructed your daughter to call but unless you are sitting outside the house - it will take time for you to get there. I do know that if a parent intentionally places their children in harms way - they can be considered negligent by child protective services and sometimes people lose their children to state custody. Just a few things to think about. Good luck!     You are not responsible for...

Q: 

ex not paying medical expenses in Ohio

A:  He's free to file a motion for contempt against her as to her 20%, assuming he's asked her more than once in writing to cough up her share of the money. I'd send demand via certified mail, showing on the letter that a copy also went via regular mail. Should he want to go after her for anything, he should be using an attorney (he can petition that she also be responsible for paying attorneys' fees associated with the endeavor). I don't know that I'd be taking legal advice from child support enforcement folks as to child support issues....

Q: 

Let my son be or keep fighting?

A:  Did you have a lawyer? And did you use the same one each time you went to court? On what grounds did they give him sole custody? Oh my god. . . the judge should be kicked in the head. Can I ask, you obviously did not have an attorney ?? Im sorry you''ve had to go through that. It must of been hard....

Q: 

Paying aquired debt prior to divorce

A:  It doesn't really matter - the court will divide your assets and your debts. If you're going to pay the debt, pay the debt. Giving her the money to pay the debt doesn't guarantee that's how the money is actually spent. Meantime, you are still liable on the debt. As Lynn pointed out, the court will divide the debts if the two of you can't agree and, BTW, unless debt is refinanced solely into the responsible party's name, both of you remain liable to the creditor for it. Consult local counsel. I think you unwise to merely give her money and assume she pays down debt--or to give her money to pay her debts but not know for sure if she is building up debts with left hand. I think you both need a much closer...

Q: 

Collecting court judgement against landlord

A:  I don't know what IL law is on such things, but you can presume payment is due immediately. The court doesn't collect the money for you. You'll have to research the procedures for going after property or $$$$ in bank accounts/from wages, etc. (Some small claims courts publish booklets on this.) Meanwhile, the judgment will accrue interest. Normally, a judgment is enforceable immediately, but sometimes there is a "grace period" in small claims courts. Don't know for sure about IL. What happens next depends entirely on you. Subject to a possible grace period, you can either wait and see if he pays or try enforcing the judgment. In...

Q: 

SSDI..what are my chances

A:  What are your chances. To medically qualify for SSDI you have to have a condition that disables you for all gainful employment and which is expected to do so for a year or more (or result in your death). You are understandibly apprehensive about the possibility of surgery. However, the person evaluating your claim could conclude that you would be able to return work if you had the surgery and/or that your condition is not expected to disable you for a year or longer. You have quoted extensively from the radiologist's report, but we have no idea how your back condition actually affects your ability to work. There is nothing in what you quoted that discusses your physical restrictions for work. Most neurosurgeons...

Q: 

small claims proceeding for arrerage?

A:  i believe you can only go to the court that has jurisdiction over your support order. Originally posted by stephenk "i believe you can only go to the court that has jurisdiction over your support order." =================================== My response: Yes, she can Stephen. However, let''s not forget that her Marital Settlement Agreement (which was probably incorporated into the signed Decree of Dissolution) is also a contract. As such, she can also utilize the jurisdiction of Small Claims court to obtain a judgment. But, she''ll still have the same problem - - that is, collecting her judgment. IAAL but do you know if i have to go through family court, therefor filing an order for...

Q: 

FATHER OWES MEDICAL AND CHILD SUPPORT

A:  I would contact a supervisor at the court to report the actions of that particular clerk;  it's not a unique situation where a child reaches 18 before graduating high school and most courts have a procedure for notifying the custodial parent and seeing if there is an objection( kid still in high school)before vacating the order. File a Motion to Reinstate Child Support retroactive to the date it was vacated and explain in the motion why. Take your order to the support office and get the support started again.  It's possible they can even make it retroactive since it shouldn't have happened in the first place. If the support order doesn't mention graduation stuff, he doesn't have to...

Q: 

Need a father''s rights attorney in N. FL

A:  Please use "Find a lawyer" to the right of this message to search for an attorney. Angie Community Moderator If the father can prove the child is better off with him, then any attorney should be able to help. You might want to ask around to see which ones represent the most men for clients. What you need is a good family lawyer. Parental rights are not gender specific....

Q:
