Q: 

ifa divorce is vaild between two american citizen in a german court of law?

A:  Dear Heather, Yes, your husband can file for divorce in Germany.  In order for you to not have to sign any papers, however, your husband would neeed to have lied to the court that he does not know your address. Only then would the courts proceed without your signature. If your husband did not lie to the courts then the courts will themselves attempt to send you the documents. I will need to know, then, if you have received anything from the courts. Have you? In any case you will need to be represented by a lawyer at the court hearing. I would be glad to represent you. You can contact me...

Q: 

I married a divorce lawyer and I am divorcing her. Can I hire her to represent me in court?

A:  have her represent you... she''s legally obligated to get you the best settlement possible! It appears you are asking this question to entertain yourself. You will be surprised to learn, that the fact that she has more money than your does not necessarily mean you will get half of her money. Whether or not she will represent herself will be entirely her decision, however, a lawyer who represents himself/herself has a fool for a client. Being an attorney she will know to hire a good lawyer to help surprise you. She cannot represent you. Have you heard the phrase ''conflict of interest'' before? She cannot represent both of you. However, two of you can have amicable agreement to have an uncontested divorce and amicably agree on equitable...

Q: 

What to do with animals during divorce that both parties have interest in

A:  First and most important thing to do is to calm down and realize that you are not the only one that has to face things like this. Keeping your cool can make the difference in making the proper decision of when and how to act and what to finally agree to. Your matter could be complicated by the fact that you and your Husband are in bankruptcy and we cannot determine how it may be involved in resolution of the farm, horses, etc. That needs to be discussed with your bankruptcy and divorce attorneys. Regarding the farm and horses, you should consult with your local attorney about what your Husband is entitled to and don''t act based on emotion. There should be a clear answer about all of the assets, debts, etc and your attorney should know the answer. The board fees are unclear. We assume you...

Q: 

how to proceed with divorce when other party married?

A:  Laymans take: You post is hard to follow--if he was still married to  prior wife at time he married you--that sure sounds like bigamy to me? Bigmany probably makes your marriage in NC void on its face..no need for divorce. Bigamy is a felony in NC--question is is it enough to get him extradited from his old country and is NC willing to get him extradited? Do you have court orderd CS payments? If you do, and he has failed to pay, contempt is a possilbe issue to add on once he is extradited to NC.   But you are going to have a devil of a time to get blood out of a stone.  Does he have money/assets  stashed any place you can find?    Caution, due to the somewaht quirky nature of SS--if he had decent SS coverage while here and you do...

Q: 

Annulment vs. Divorce.. only 1 party

A:  Have her consult a local attorney. She will have to make a reasonable effort to find him. If after a reasonable effort occurs, he still cannot be located, a judge may allow divorce by publication. She should consult a local attorney about the process of service by publication. Divorce is much easier. If he cannot be located you can publish notice that will be good service of process....

Q: 

CA/Alameda County: uncontested divorce court hearing preparation

A:  "What happens in a hearing?" That's WAY too general a question to answer. It depends on what the hearing is for, what the issues are, who appears, etc. "Will this first hearing only be about the divorce or will child custody and/or child support be brought up?" Again, it depends on what the hearing is for. Also, if you're going to exclude things like custody and support, there isn't anything "about the divorce" to discuss....

Q: 

Moved 83 miles and lovin it

A:  1.  Probably not, but the judge can put the burden on you to get the child back for vists. 2,  Sure, she is the child's mother...so there is always a shot. ninjabiker: No one on an Internet forum can predict what some unknown judge might decide. Because you appear to have been the CP for awhile, I would think that custody reverting to Mom would be somewhat of a longshot. But, she has exercised her visitation rights in the past. I would not be at all surprised if you don't get the entire burden of transporting the child to Mom and transporting the child back on her weekends. Has Mom seen the child since you moved?  I am guessing not since you wrote "she sees her mom everyother weekend, well i recently took a job 83 miles from the city where we...

Q: 

I NEED A DIVORCE

A:  File in your own state/county. You may have to serve him by publication, which will take some extra time, but you can get divorced without his input, or cooperation. Sure but do you know what your state requires before service by publication is allowed? Filing the paperwork is one thing. Proof of service is another. If you do not know what you are doing you would be foolish not to consult an attorney. It is not that you can;t use the packet but you must serve your husband in order foir the divorce actio to proceed. If you cannot find him for service it will get complicated. If you don't understand the law then it would be wise to retain counsel. I'm not in KY and have no idea whether the packets are any good or a waste of money. More...

Q: 

Getting Life Insurance on Ex after Divorce is final? California

A:  My sister''s divorce was final a little over a year ago. Her attorney forgot to include a life insurance policy against her ex-husband, since he''s to pay alimony for 12 years. Can she get life insurance on him after the divorce without his permission, or can she go back to court to get it included in the divorce? She can pay pay for it, but apparently life insurance companies won''t issue a policy on someone else without that person''s permission, and he''s being a jerk. I worked for a major life ins. co. for 36+ years & that is correct. An ins. co. will not issue a policy on an adult w/o that person signing the application - w/o their permission. They need to sign also to attest to the answers on the application - that they are...

Q: 

My ex got our divorce agreement changed without my knowledge--Q

A:  Mist likely, your "ex" spouse obtained whatever decision against you by default judgment. As it was in a state where you don''t reside, you might have missed being notified, or he served you by publication. You can''t get this changed by bringing an action in your state. You might be able to attack the decision in the state where it was rendered. That could be a very difficult task. As you have limited funds, and no one wants to help you, you might be stuck with the decision as it is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk If your ex still lives in the state where you divorced, they retain jurisdiction. When you move out of state you have to deal with the inconvenience of the other state retaining jurisdiciton. You do not have many options but to argue that you were...
