I live in Santa Barbara, CA and our divorce
was tried in our local court. The decision was made Sept 2015. I would like the judge to clarify and to rule on two issues which were either not specifically spelled out or addressed during our trial. How do I follow up with the Judge?
JA: OK. The Family Lawyer
will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No. Though I was represented for most of my case, I self-represented for trial (what a train wreck!). I will self represent for these issues, too.
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Family Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Family Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: First issue, we have three children. Each has a 529 education account. I am listed as co-account owner on only one of the three accounts. I've asked my ex to please list me as co-owner on the other two. He refuses. These accounts are not custodial accounts. The account owner has full control of the account (per Charles Scwab, Us New, IRS, etc). Therefore, he has control over $60K which were not apart of original decision.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Family Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
