Q: 

testify--Q

A:  You have to show up to testify if you''ve received a subpoena to do so. Failure to show up could result in a warrant put out for your arrest. When I did volunteer work in our local Victims Assistance Program, I found that most judges do not like it when witnesses who have received a subpoena don''t bother showing up. Most would put out a bench warrant on them in a snap. Gail Originally Posted by sara curry I have a subpoena to testify against my husband in court this month.

Q: 

property tax foreclosure mortgage co. fault--Q

A:  That''s a difficult situation that you are in. You have an issue of wrongful foreclosure and the law seems to depend upon what state you are in. A case that deals with this issue (but doesn''t help) is Zeller v. Home Federal Savings & Loan Ass''n 220 Ga. App. at 361, 469 S.E.2d. The problem I''m having is why you didn''t take an active stance when you received notice that your home was going to be auctioned off in a foreclosure sale. I would have absolutely demanded some confirmation that this was not going to happen. I do not know if a lawyer will take this case on contingency because there may not be enough monetary damages to enable one to take the case -- this one primarily involves equity and your right to keep your home. A class...

Q: 

Woman Working the system

A:  Help with what? You didn't ask a question. "In that period of time he got behind like $2000.00 dollars and now she is taking him to court for contempt" I was curious if you were talking about alimony or child support. Since this is a child support board that must be what you're talking about. If Dad is $2000 behind, then he needs to pay it. I'm glad he is 'currently' paying his support on time like he is supposed to, but it doesn't sound like he has always been doing so. Mom is within her rights to take him to court for her money. The law is gender neutral. It doesn't matter if you are a man or woman the laws are the same....

Q: 

What to do

A:  "What can we do to gain full cutody of said chil?" Your husband needs to talk with his-a local family law attorney. "My husband has court order joint custody with every other weekend visitation and shared holidays. But hasn't had his right fullfiled." Clearly he didn't bother to press the issue via a contempt motion in the family court. You go back to court and ask for custody. Your husband has a decent shot at custody if he can prove the child is better off with him. By the way the next time she leaves...

Q: 

Default judgement due to non response (anyone)

A:  The court likely will grant you your divorce.  In other words, you become "the ex". But, final child support orders and the marital property division issues may remain unresolved.  Without seeing the details of the custody evaluation, I suspect the judge could make an orderr on that issue based upon the info presented. You may have to petition the court for contempt of court and sanctions if he is a "no show" at your next court date and refuses to provide "financials"....

Q: 

Divorce, life insurance not maintained (per separation agreement), options?

A:  Jim Thorp <thorp_jim...yahoo.com> wrote in message news:<t9c3uvcitolfdba8o8b11ofj6rdt28khpb...4ax.com>... Parents divorced 20 years ago, state of jurisdiction is North Carolina. Lifetime alimony paid to wife from ex-husband. In addition, life insurance ($500,000) required to be maintained by the ex-husband for the wife, per the terms of their final separation agreement. The ex-husband has willfully chosen not to maintain the life insurance. The ex-wife has a long-term, terminal illness and would require the proceeds from the life insurance policy to maintain her in her (private-pay ONLY) nursing facility...

Q: 

Sleepovers and Living Together

A:  What does the order say--if its not in order, then ex is out to lunch! "He said it was the first he heard of it, and that she said it is a general "law." No it isn't.  ex is full of baloney.  If their court order on visitation does not state that there is no overnight visitation if they are living with someone then she has NO power to suddenly enforce her own morals on the court ordered visitation.  courts are loathe to tell ANYONE who they can date, live with, or marry.  He needs to have her point out the exACT law that says this and tell her until...

Q: 

Do I have to summon him? Washington

A:  you probably do need to follow your state and local rules for proper service, and the court probably already has that time earmarked for a certain issue, and not the others, although since you know exactly where he will be on a certain day and time, you could have him served right before or right after court Summon him. Have nothing to add except that you have a right to be ticked. He HOCKED THEIR TOYS?? Well, just go with the knowledge that he lost serious entrance to Heaven points. :D Anywho, summon him. Even though he will already be in the building, this hearing is a different matter. A judge will normally only deal with the issue at hand....no "add ons". Good luck and stay...

Q: 

Illegal Seizure of Funds In Checking Account

A:  The seizure of your money was legal. However, it might have been possible to quash the levy if you had responded properly. I'll point out below where you went wrong. "In November 2008, I was given notice that my former attorney that I retained for my divorce had filed a claim for repayment with the Small Claims court in my state of Iowa." For one thing I don't know exactly what your wording means. If you mean "I was sued by my attorney in small claims court" then that what you should write. If you were sued in small claims court you would have been served a summons and complaint which would look like this:...
