Q: 

divorce anot getting screwed$

Q: 

Is veteran disability payment marital

A:  Nope his veteran disability is not subject to any court (state/federal) lein. I know I've been through it. However, even tho it's not, the judge can take that amount into consideration and subject him to pay a fixed price. For example, let's say your brother makes $2,669.00 all from the VA as a disability payment. Even tho the state can't touch it, the judge and take 15% (for child spt for 1 child) and say "I command you to pay her $400.00 a month." See how the courts get around this? He must put it down as income on his income statement. If he has a good lawyer tho, that lawyer should read some law books on this...

Q: 

Discrimination against men in NY divorce court

A:  In future posts, please put 2-3 spaces between sentences. "I need an attorney to file a discrimination suit against hearing examiner In Niagara county NY." I doubt there's a legal route for such a case, given sovereign immunity. In any event, we don't do referrals here. "My wife has threatened to kill me in my sleep with my own gun." Not sure what this has to do with your post, but I trust you contacted the police and had her arrested. "Hearing examiner ruled that she could have house and half of my pension." This isn't up for debate or argument of discrimination assuming the house was bought while married and you earned pension while married. "I could have all of our...

Q: 

Having bill''s paid by ex-husband?

A:  Not clear on why you didn't object to the divorce being decided in Indiana in the first place if any property issues were based in WI, but that's water under the bridge at this point. "He wouldn't give me money for another attorney...." If the court ordered him to pay your legal fees (that's not clear here), you'd have been able to file a motion for contempt if he did not. "... or transportation to get to the hearing...." I'm not clear on why he'd be responsible for your transportation. If you are truly disabled, you can talk with a local personal injury firm that also handles stuff like Social Security disability claim appeals. "I also...

Q: 

credit repair

A:  I will answer what I can, and for advice that is too case-specific I will have to tell you to see an experienced local attorney, because your question does not contain all of the information that a lawyer needs to know about you. A divorce decree requiring you to pay money to your former spouse is not dischargable in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but might be in Chapter 13. See, http://www.debt-relief-bankruptcy.com/faq-browse11-14/bankruptcy-guide.asp for some introductory info about that. If you want others to consider you a good credit risk, you have to make yourself credit worthy. Stop borrowing more than you can comfortably repay, and get a steady dependable source of income. If you are already drowning in debt, consult a good local...

Q: 

Sue ex-husband for contempt of court?

A:  You can pretty much forget about the contempt of court suit. Doesn't usually work that way. As far as the debts, you said the cards were in your name, right? If that's true, it doesn't matter that the divorce decree gave him all the debt - The creditors do not have to abide by that order. And if they were listed in HIS bankruptcy, that only clears his liability to pay those debts...not yours. I'm not sure of the order of things, but if he was to assume all marital debt and the debts the creditors are coming after you for were those marital debts, you would file for contempt against him for not paying those debts . You would have to file in the court the divorce...

Q: 

Bankruptcy to protect SSDI from tax liens?

A:  I''m not sure I understand why you figure filing for bankruptcy is going to stop the IRS. Back taxes, unless they''re more than 3 years old, cannot be discharged in a CH 7. In a Ch 13, they can be paid back as part of the Plan. Ch 13 would buy you some time - to a degree, but other than that filing for BK isn''t going to help much. How old are these taxes and is the IRS making siezure noises ? I am not trying to have the taxes discharged. My concern is that my SSDI payments will be taken by the IRS to pay the debt they claim. I do not know how much they will claim. I need time to get the taxes sorted out and I would like to pay over time if I can not resolve it by...

Q: 

Can visitation be altered for kids busy schedules?

A:  You would have to go to IL for any modification since they still hold jurisdiction. His ability or not to pay child support is not a controlling factor in changes in visitation. You moved the children away from their father, that is not his fault. You bear the cost of transportation to the distance you created. Scheduling children for activities during dad''s time or making excuses for not honoring the visitation orders can eventually result in you being found in contempt or worse. Putting the children in the middle is not his or the children''s fault. If you are seriously considering a new visitation schedule, consider giving him more time in the summer, say 9 instead of 6 weeks. You have enough t

Q: 

Extrinsic Fraud aided and abetted by officers of the court

A:  Crazier things have happened but it sounds pretty "out there". Do some investigation, get copies of the court file by going to the clerks office. Then approach a lawyer with papers for him/her to review....
