I found your website by researching and have a quick question. I have been divorced for over 10 years. I have a 19 year old who is in college and a 16 year old who still is living with me and has intentions of going away to college in two years. He lives with me and my boyfriend.We currently live on Long Island and rent for $2130.00 per month - needless to say this is a very steep bill. My ex has been remarried for about 8 years and has had a child with his new wife who is about 6 or 7 - she has two children from a previous marriage. He was also found in contempt and served 45 days in jail for displacing me and my children out of our home for failure to pay the mortgage which was agreed upon in our divorce stip. Of course that house was put into foreclosureMy ex did not pay child support for many years and about 3 years ago I finally folded and the $1100.00 per month he was supposed to pay me turned into a mere $600 per month. I have recently been laid off and have been out of work for 3 months and prior to that I was laid off from Cable vision when they sold, and prior to that I worked at a company MSC and they eliminated my position. The luck has certainly run out.I am looking to start fresh in a place that I have an opportunity to utilize my Bachelors degree in Education and run a Day Care Center making a substantial amount of money in PA. Also to start a new life with my boyfriend - perhaps marriage will be on the table as well in the future.Might I say that my ex does not and has never seen my children on a regular basis. This year alone he has seen my son probably 3-4 times.Once I secure the job and the plans I am wondering what I should do.Thanks for the help.
My girlfriend was trying to leave her mother and father
My girlfriend was trying to leave her mother and father in-laws place with her son after her husband had died and her grandparents coerced her to live with them for a little while. The grandparents have no legal rights to her son whatsoever. As the mother was trying to leave, her mother in law forcably took the child from his mother and pushed his mother down to the ground. They then took the child inside and locked the door. The mother had to then call the police, and the police had to extract the child. Do we have any legal avenues we can take to pursue these people?
Hope you are well. My marriage of 26 years has been
Hello. Hope you are well. My marriage of 26 years has been difficult mainly due to him. I am seeking divorce even though he says he does not want. I think that's because he doesn't want to part with anything. I feel he is waiting for me to initiate a divorce then I really feel he will use my bi-polar disorder against me and try to say I am crazy so he can cut me out of everything. What can I do about this? I am not interested in a long court battle even though I feel this is the route he wants to take. Thank you.hAtcan
I loaned approximately $17,000 to my ex-wife, and we have a
I loaned approximately $17,000 to my ex-wife, and we have a contract via email for her liability to pay it back, to which she has agreed. She has paid it down to $8,500 and is now refusing to pay the rest. The loan is in my name, so having it go delinquent will ultimately negatively impact my credit, not hers. I believe that she has left the country in hopes of fleeing the debt. She has not responded to any contact attempts from me. What kind of recourse do I have here? In your experience, do you think I will end up spending more than $8,500 just to get this money back?

just researching. thanks!JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: LouisianaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am in the middle of a divorce, and my wife resides in Washington state and her attorney has included a temporary restraining order in the petition even though there has been no actual or threat of violence. The judge has signed off on it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No. This is entirely bogus because we have never had violence in our 20 years of marriage. There are no citations, arrests, etc. to justify this order. In fact, we have traveled out of the country together after she signed the divorce petition.
