Q: My spouse wants a divorce & will be taking my kids far away from me
A: You should hire an experienced local attorney to form a stategy that fits your budget, needs, and schedule. This should be done as soon as possible before she moves. Even if you oppose it, if the court determines it is in the best interest of the children to be with the mother 400 miles away, it will allow the children to move with the mother.
Q: Child custody question
A: Yes, hire an attorney to file a petition to modify custody and child support with the appropriate affidavit from your 17 year old that he wants custody to be changed to you.
Q: How do i file for legal separation and can i get child support after doing so ? in carroll county ga
A: The action is one for separate maintenance. You resolve the same things you would in an action for a legal separation in other states.
Q: Do my husband have to help pay the bills until the divorce is final? If so what do I have to do to get him to pay
A: You need a lawyer to represent you in the matter. Do an internet search of experienced lawyers who practice in or near your county. If you cannot find an attorney (paid or pro bono), you will have to file a petition for temporary spousal support, child support, and/or for payment of joint debt.
Q: I am representing myself in a child custody battle. Where do I find interrogatories and subpeonas
A: You should seriously consider consulting with an attorney to discuss this matter. Even if you decide after the consultation to do it alone, you will have more information to assist you in handling the matter alone. In any event, go online for the interrogatories for divorces and Maryland specific interrogatories. In addition, check the section in the Maryland Rules. Subpoenas can be obtained from the clerk of the court where the matter has been filed.

Q: I am filing an uncontested divorce, we have two children over 18, do they need to be listed on the divorce paperwork.
A: You have to do if they are under 21. Otherwise, you can state that all children from the marriage are 21 or over.
Q: I`ve had my ex in court 12 time for contempt of court judge refuses to in force this what can I do
A: You didn't state if you had an attorney or why he didn't enforce the order. If you haven't had an attorney previously, you should seriously think about hiring one.
