Not ZoeyMy ex accused me of fraud - of signing his signature, and got the judge to order a handwriting exemplar. My ex provided no proof that I signed it and no proof that he did not sign it. In my motion to reconsider it was mentioned that I obtained an expert and his conclusion was that it was in fact my ex's writing. Does the judge have the right to keep his order and demand an exemplar? If so why and what else can be done

I have a GAL on my custody case, we went to court on 3/13 because I objected to her emergency recommendations. The Jussie adopted them.

Do I get to object to that amended recommendation and if so does the faker still have to follow the minute order from 3/13. I live in nm

I am a 100% disabled veteran, living in New Mexico. I have been legally married for over 30 years. I have been physically separated for about the last 2 1/2 years. My wife left me with 2 of our 3 children, That is, I have the kids. the 3rd is an adult living on his own. I have been paying her a monthly stipend for her own support, which comes to about 1/4 of my total income. My sole income is from VA Disability (I'm a %100 disabled veteran) and Social security disability.. The amount I have been sending her every month is a little over 1/4 of that combined. Once the divorce is finalized, I will lose several hundred dollars of the VA disability, as they pay me married with children rates. Am I asking for (legal) trouble if in a pro se filing, I offer spousal support less than what I have been sending, based on the fact that my income will go down? I have heard, but never confirmed, that this particular income stream is not countable in determining alimony/spousal support. True? Or wishful thinking?

I have been (legally) married for over 30 years,

I have been (legally) married for over 30 years, (physically) separated for about 2 1/2. I am in the process of trying to get a divorce. I have recently heard from several old friends that mty soon to be exwife has confessed to them on multiple occasions that our oldest son, now 25, is not mine. I am obviously hurt, but I don't know whether I should even mention this, unless she tries to be difficult during the divorce. I.E, She has been pumping my younger kids, both teenagers, who have lived fulltime with me since she left, for information about who/whether I'm dating anyone, etc.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New Mexico.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I'm trying to do this pro se, as finances are an issue. I have been raising two teenagers by myself since she left, on top of voluntarily paying her a monthly stipend for her own support. I know, I know...That's just who I am.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That probably does it.
