Q: 

What can I do if a company has declared bankruptcy and still owes me over $5000 dollars?

A:  You are a creditor of this company in bankruptcy. Under almost all situations it is advisable to file a claim with the court clerk of the bankruptcy court where the case is pending.The form for filing a claim is frequently provided with the notice of the filing. Fill it out, indicate if these are wage claims or other kinds of claims entitled to priority for payment, sign it and send two copies of the claim and a stamped self addressed envelope to the court for filing and the return of a filed copy.In most cases, no claims are paid until the trustee has completed his work of gathering up assets, turning them into cash, and looking for transfers made by the debtor before the case was filed that can be avoided. So, be patient and keep the court informed of your mailing address so that any...

Q: 

What should I do? What can I do?

A:  ''I already know the stress of raising and coping with children seperately and not as a family and know that it is not what is best for the child'' In light of his quote, perhaps give them all away. Then at least they won''t be separated from each other It would suck to be the only one given away; and it would equally suck to know your sibling was given away. Once you cope with two children, one more barely makes a difference (been there, done that) It sounds very much like you''re projecting your feelings about the child''s father onto the situation as a whole, as though getting rid of his child is a way of getting rid of him - how can that be fair to the innocent little person I hope he shapes up and pays child support, for the child''s sake and for the sake of his or her siblings who...

Q: 

What form or what do I need fill out if my girlfriend wants to sign over custody of our unborn child to me?

A:  Each state is different, so check with your local court house. Friend of the court will know something to point you in a direction. Make sure you are there for the delivery, even if its in the waiting room, and sign the birth certificate and the affidavit of parentage. Where I live you can''t sign the birth certificate without signing the affidavit, but make sure you are there and on the paper work. Woo Hoo for you. contact your lawer, nothing is legal until that baby is born because any thing could happen between now and then. she could change her mind when she sees the child so while she is still pregnant save any thing that has her sayin she does not want it and that she is giving it to you because if she changes her mind this will go against her in court. im...

Q: 

My ex-wife and I have joint custody of our two children. Can I transfer my ''custody'' to my wife in the event of my death? I''m afraid my ex-wife won''t allow my parents to be a part of my kid''s life if I''m not around

A:  If you think it would be dangerous for Mom to be around the children, you need to say so and lay out the reasons for your fear in your will or in some easily accessible document that accompanies your will. Otherwise, Mom as the natural parent will always have the inside track on custody of the children if something happens to the other parent. You don''t get to decide that; it''s up to the probate judge. I''m sorry. -- Lee Borden...

Q: 

I''ve been paying child support in IL since 2006. On Dec. 3, 2008 it was ordered that my obligation to pay be terminated. Payments are still being taken from my paycheck. Letters to officials not working. Overpaid so far $1316. What can I do?

A:  Go back to court. They''ll have to pay you all that money back Go to the court house or get an attorney You already know the answer, see an family attorney & let him do the work. Unless you want to keep paying... So you were ordered to stop paying child support since December of 2008? Isn''t that near $200 a month? Do you have custody of this child? Is he/she yours? $200 a month is pretty damn cheap for a kid, near $50 a week. Investing in your kid, ain''t a bad thing to do. :) Good luck! Before seeing an attorney get a printout from child support enforcement....

Q: 

How much can I expect to spend to get a pardon of my criminal record?

A:  I had a similar question a while ago. Play it safe by click on www.lawyersearchdome.tk A lot of money dude!! Probably close to a million dollars. Or join the army. They expunge your record. First, the army does NOT ''expunge your record''. That is ridiculous. The procedures for obtaining a pardon vary from state to state. But, in every state, they are RARELY granted, and the cost of hiring one of the very few politically-connected professionals who can accomplish this is very high. Before you pay out a lot of money, first ask yourself, WHY should you, among the thousands of guilty ex-convicts in your state, be granted a pardon? What makes your case so special? Being a trustee in prison is nothing special. Additional arrests, even if no additional convictions, also...

Q: 

Giving custody of a child to someone else?

A:  Hi rpope904@att.net, Are you saying your wife''s best friend wants to adopt this child or just assume legal custody until the family sorts out their problems? The child is in danger so yes, DCF does need to be involved. They will probably place the child in a home that has already been pre-approved for care until more permanent arrangements can be made, preferably with a family member. The immediate concern is getting medical attention for the child as soon as possible. DCF may know of a foster home that specializes in care for babies with those types of health problems. It looks like the decisions for the child''s health care will temporarily be made by the state. A letter alone, even if it''s notarized, is not going to be sufficient to...

Q: 

How to get child back to custodial parent?

A:  Why haven''t kidnapping charges been filed against her?!?!?!?!?! She''s in violation of the court order. I don''t think the father''s attorney really knows what he is dealing with when it comes to the mother''s conduct. The father at one time had a very good attorney, but unfortunately passed away. The attorney probably knew the case inside & out. If mother won''t contact the father as to when & how child is going to be returned, is there anything that can keep father from going to mothers state to pickup the child? This as always been about the father not marrying her and her not wanting to work. In other words child support. I think what she''s planning if she can keep the child long enough, then she can go to court in her state and file for custody &...

Q: 

If i dont have a job by the time we go to court for custody of my son will i lose?

A:  Its not going to look good that both of you do not have employment. You are up against his biological father who has a job and can prove to the court that he can financially provide for the child, and you can not. But he is up against the biological mother, and unless you have a criminal history (drugs/violence etc), then it is pretty hard to lose custody of your child. You may be granted 50/50 custody with the father, but you should not loose your rights to custody for simply not having a job. unless you are having sex in front of your child while smoking crack it is highly unlikely a judge will award custody to your ex. fathers are treated like criminals in

Q: 

What can be done for a 16-year-old who has been kicked out of their home with no means of support?

A:  In this situation, there are 2 possible avenues to pursue here.  One is that your could petition the court to become his legal guardian.  A legal guardianship is a formal decision by a judge that suspends parents'' custody of their child and gives custody to a non-parent.  Typically, any adult 21 or older, can serve as a legal guardian for a child under 18.  A legal guardianship gives an adult who is taking care of a child the formal authority to provide for the child''s needs.  They need not worry about being charged with ''kidnapping'' or ''harboring a runaway.''  A legal guardianship can be helpful in establishing stability for a child who has come from a troubled family setting.  In...
