My daughter is getting a divorce by herself w/o a lawyer. So

My daughter is getting a divorce by herself w/o a lawyer. So she served her husband by putting a notice in the paper and she is filling out the parenting plan. Now she has no idea where her husband/child's father is. He has not filed any papers like appearance/answer nothing. So on the parenting plan she does not want to set up visitation is that ok? She thinks she needs an order of default, the parenting plan the judgment for divorce/dissolution a copy of the petition for dissolution/divorce and she can go to court. Is there anything else she needs to take. Does she need proof that she published with the Law Bulletin? Can they email it to her? She goes to court Monday

Here is the scenario - In on-going custody case with ex. He

here is the scenario - In on-going custody case with ex. He has had supervised visitation for several years now. Ex has gone to jail for 30 days for protective order violations, being behind on child support and medical expenses. Ex previously represented himself and filed multiple meritless contempt cases, resulting in judgement for lawyer fees etc... Ex never paid those and to date still has 2 unpaid judgments to lawyers for $5,000 each and unpaid judgement to me for $100,000. Ex file for bankruptcy recently and yet just recently again filed a contempt charge against me. I have to hire another lawyer and defend myself against these ridiculous charges. The filing I believe is only meant to harass me both emotionally and financially. Ex's lawyer knows the history of this case and was only hired when ex was caught hacking my computer and faces potential criminal charges. Since ex's lawyer knows he owes all this money and has filed for bankruptcy, I believe it is unethical for the lawyer to take money and file this case on his behalf, when he owes that money to me based on judement to pay my attorneys. Why can he keep coming up with money to hire attorneys and avoid paying the attorney he should be paying per the judgement? I am starting to blame the attorney for being complicit in this plan. Is there anything I can do?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: If you mean regarding the attorney? No. I only have money to hire lawyers to defend myself from all the bs stuff he has filed over the years.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

My daughter has had drug/emotional/mental issues for several

my daughter has had drug/emotional/mental issues for several years. She and my ex-son-in-law have been battling for a number of years over what is best for their 7 year old daughter. last may my daughter supposedly tried to commit suicide so my ex soninlaw file for temporary permanent custody and it was granted by a judge. My daughter was given supervised visitation only, which she did not do because she claimed that she could not afford it. last wed, we met with my son in law's attorney (me, my husband, my son and my ex son in law. the lawyer had put down provisions and presented them to my daughters lawyer before we even got to his office. thinking back on it now, we feel we were totally misled and ended up signing an agreement that we now think is a mistake. is there a wait time on the agreement? is there still time to rescind....i don't believe it has been sent to a judge yet..... Also, it gives my ex son in law full residential custody.... is that the same as primary custody? I feel we were very much bamboozled into an agreement without full disclosure of what it all entailed. Can you give me more info and advice as to how to proceed from here. we all feel that the volatile personality of my daughter creates a way less than safe environment for a 7 year old Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer:

In Georgia, if I am divorcing my husband after 1.5 years of

In Georgia, if I am divorcing my husband after 1.5 years of marriage, thus requiring no alimony from me to him (he did not work our entire marriage by choice, just got a job in light of the divorce proceeding)...in fact he will have to pay child support for our five month old baby… What may be required of me if anything if he is unable to take care of himself on his current wages (the house will remain with me since it is in my name and I am the only person who can financially pay for the mortgage payments and need the house to raise the child)???I am trying to understand what will happen when the divorce is final in court, likely in approximately 45 days from now, and knowing that he will not have made enough money to get an apartment or really to sustain himself at all on top of having to pay child support. I am sure the courts will not allow for him to be homeless without a plan… So I'm trying to gauge what the possible scenarios would be in terms of what is likely to happen to enable the physical separation despite his low wages…?

I have a bit of a "different" type situation. My daughter

Hi. I have a bit of a "different" type situation. My daughter signed temporary custody of her daughter, to my ex husband. The child is two. He and his wife are named the Maternal Grandparents in the papers, and I am no where listed in said papers. Do I have a legal right to fight this, so that I can visit with my grand daughter? What are my rights, where this is concerned?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am Louisiana. Nothing has been filed, since I found out that I am not named as the legal maternal grandmother, No.JA: Got it. I'm sure you'll come up with a good name.Customer: I'm sorry???JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My ex and I have a verbal agreement, that I'm supposed to be able to go get my granddaughter every other weekend. That has been cut down to supervised visits, per the psychologist, which is NOT in the papers, either.

My son was molested by his father who is in and out of our

My son was molested by his father who is in and out of our lives since day one. My son is 14 years old, has autism and refuses to see his father. I could not prove to the court that the molestation occurred and the judge doesn't believe the molestation occurred. The judge is very cruel to me and tells me things like my opinion doesn't matter. My son and I are going through difficult times and the judge keeps giving more time to the abusive parents when two counselors said it would not be in my son's best interest to see his father. The judge is judge Mariner and senator Mcsally has it on google that he is a corrupt judge that blocked her motion to not let illegal aliens vote in 2008. I want to sue the judge and son's father for unnecessary stress and somewhere I believe my son's rights are being violated. The judge keeps writing untrue opinions about me to the court. I am stressed and worried as well as my son that the judge will find me and take my son away from me as noted in writing that I'm causing my son stress and that will take my parental rights away. When it is them that are causing unnecessary stress. Can you help me? how much will it cost? do I have a case against them? My next court date is next week and I am very nervous. Don't want to be there alone.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Tucson, AZ.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, thanks!
