The first question would be whether those papers are indeed "legit", and we don't do product reviews. Assuming the company didn't mess up and she was legally served, the next question would be whether she responded (in the legal sense) or not. If she failed to respond at all within 21 days (add 9 days if she is out of state), then your next step would be to ...

I am going to convert a set of comments into an answer. Please note, IANAL, especially in your jurisdiction. You are asking the wrong question. The Court is not specifically ordering your father to make more money; it is ordering him to support his ex-wife (XW) at a level similar to what she enjoyed during the 20-year marriage. This is not outlandish. In ...

Admissibility is one thing, enforcement is another. My observations, which are more detailed than casual, is that Family Courts are a different breed, and more than most any other court, "they do what they want." I have associates who had agreed to stipulations, detailing how a child might be handled, only to have a family court decide at some point to ...

Will you be in legal trouble for child pornography? No. The legal definition of child pornography generally requires things such as "sexually explicit conduct" or "lewd and lascivious display". Mere nudity does not rise to this standard; photographic documentation of suspected physical abuse comes nowhere near it. Will you get in trouble for not ...

As a general rule, countries tend to recognize marriages performed abroad - even if those marriages could not legally be performed in the country. (So a 14 year old couple from North Carolina would be considered "married" in the UK. Note: that doesn't mean they can legally have sex.) There are exceptions: countries which don't permit polygamy often don't ...

is spousal immunity a defense for a forced restraining order by a biological father if he won't even speak to a suitor (i.e. may I take your daughter on a date)? There is no such thing as "spousal immunity". Your post is replete with unclear references, unclear statements, and seemingly unrelated questions. But it is noteworthy that spousal privilege (not "...

Before calling Jugendschutz, call your wife's primary care physician or pediatrician (baby's doctor) and tell them what's happening. The pediatrician in particular should have contacts to support groups, etc. The doctor may also decide that she needs to go on medication. If she's breastfeeding, ask her to stop and go to formula. Either of you can prep the ...

There was no divorce in Ireland between 1937 and 1996 Before 1937, the Irish Free State inherited the divorce laws that were then in force. These required an Act of Parliament (which was ludicrously expensive and therefore not available to someone of Finnegan's means) or annulment (which is strictly speaking, the official recognition that a marriage never ...

A summary is here. In Ontario, couples keep what they brought to the marriage but split what was gained during the marriage 50-50 except where one partner brought the matrimonial home into the marriage (unless there is a marriage contract or separation agreement). Its complicated - Joe and Jane need lawyers.

While a person is resident in Australia, and has been for at least the past 12 months, that person can obtain a divorce under Australian law, without regard to Indian law. Whether India will recognize that divorce I do not know. If the person is not an Australian citizen and has not been resident in Australia for at least 12 months, the Australian courts ...

Short Answer I was wondering if it exists the possibility of signing a legal agreement before impregnation that states legally that both parents compromise into offering shared physical custody of the child to each other in case of divorce or separation. Do theses types of contract exists? are they legal? I currently live in Switzerland, but the question is ...

Such a contract is unenforceable Family law is primarily concerned with the best interests of the child(ren); not the wishes of the parents. If the relationship breaks down, the court will decide custody arrangements based on the law.

Short Answer In the 1920s, there was not a right to a trial by jury in a divorce case in England and Wales, but a judge had the authority to order a jury trial in a divorce case, and while this was rare and disfavored, if the judge did so, the jury would have both me and women on it at that time. Or would the particular facts of the story in the movie, such ...

The law regarding life insurance and divorce in PA is maybe contrary to expectation. When you are divorced, that nullifies a designation of the spouse as beneficiary to life insurance policy, unless it is continued in the settlement agreement or court order. But this is not be applicable if the insurance is part of an employment benefit which is regulated by ...

If all you and your wife knows come from what you have been told by this friend, that would be hearsay and inadmissible evidence. There would be no valid reason to depose either one of you against your will.

In a custody case, the judge is charged with determining the "best interests of the child" and pre-dispute agreements between parents are not legally binding. A judge has broad discretion to consider almost any kind of evidence pertinent to its broad mandate, and to decide what is and isn't relevant in a case. But, such a writing is only relevant to the ...
