Legal Answers
96 Questions Answered
Q. Divorce and dogs
A: You can be joined to the divorce case, but I don't think it will be necessary. If the court orders the dog to be returned, your father will be responsible for performing or defending against the potential contempt remedies.

But the timeline is important here, if the dog was originally community property and it was gifted to you before the petition for dissolution was served, I don't think your stepmother has any recourse. Either spouse is fully allowed to sell, transfer, and otherwise dispose of community property during the marriage.
Q. What does this child support worksheet shall be controlling as to unreimbursed medical expenses mean?
A: It likely means that the proportionate income assigned to both parents will control the division of those expenses, but you may want to review your decree with an attorney to be certain.
Q. Who can you file fraud upon the court in family court with? What court would handle this type of petition ?
A: Unfortunately it isn't clear what type of fraud you are alleging. Generally speaking, fraud claims need to be raised in the family court and within six months of the judgment or order procured by fraud. You may want to consult directly with a family lawyer to provide the additional context necessary to more precisely answer your question.
