Q. What is the standard procedure for calculating credits in a divorce and what is the meaning behind it?
A: I'm sorry but this is a very fact specific question which would require far more detailed knowledge of your case. I have to assume that you have an attorney representing you. She/he is the one you should be asking about this. If you don't have an attorney representing you, then grab your file and consult with an experienced family law attorney. It sounds like the husband has filed an appeal to Superior Court. If so, you're going to want to have an attorney with some appellate experience representing you.
Q. Hello I will like to know what can I do I live in a hm with my ex th mortgage is under his name the the deed has both
A: Since you're on the deed, you share ownership of the house. Are you getting a divorce? Then you have a claim to a portion of the equity in the house. If you're just asking, this is your answer. I suggest before anyone takes any action in regard to the house, such as selling it or refinancing it, that you speak with an attorney.
Q. my husband buys a truck he puts someone else as co owner ( not me), when he dies am I entitled to half?
A: No. You might have a claim for a portion of his share of the value in a divorce actin, but not in the event of his death.
Q. Divorced 2016. Child is now 3, can i file a child support order and get the past support payments since the divorce?
A: Not unless you opened a support case with Domestic Relations back then or your Property Settlement Agreement for your divorce mentioned having him pay you support. Absent either of those situations, your order would be effective the date you file so you may want to head over to DRO asap.
Q. Divorced in Marin county in 1987. Need to adjust alimony. Live out of state now. Do I need a CA lawyer?
A: I don't know if it can be done but a CA attorney would be the one to consult. I always suggest that someone go back to the attorney who handled the divorce but I imagine any experienced family law attorney in Marin County can be of assistance.
Q. My grandparents are threatening to put a restraining order my boyfriend, but they dont have custody of me, I'm 16 hes 17
A: And so here's the other half of your question. You also asked if you're boyfriend's family could get custody of you. Please consider what I said before. It's apparent that they're trying to keep you safe. Is it possible that they could meet your boyfriend and have a civil conversation with him, perhaps several? Usually once people see that someone doesn't appear to provide a threat to their child's (or in your case, grandchild's) safety, they come around. It just takes some people longer than others. I have to say that I would not advise you to sneak around behind their backs as my colleague suggests. That's about the worst thing you could do in my opinion.
Q. My grandparents don't have custody but I live with them. I'm 16. Can my boyfriends parents get custody of me ?
A: Probably not. I wonder if you might consider being a bit more sympathetic to your grandparents. You say they're health isn't good but they're still providing you with a home to live in, food to eat, and clothing to wear. It may be pretty difficult for people their age to deal with a teenager just like it seems difficult for you to deal with the older folks, but they're family and that means a lot.
Q. When going through a divorce if the husband and wife already split there assets and the mother see the child 4 nights
A: It all depends on the parents' incomes. If you have an idea of what the other parent earns, you can use this support calculator to get a very rough estimate of what the order might be. https://www.humanservices.state.pa.us/csws/csws_controller.aspx?PageId=csws/support_estimator_overview.ascx&Preference=Desktop&Owner=Client
Q. Child support, Pa-. unemployed parent w felonies & suspended DL searching for employment what is state minimum payment
A: The judge has the discretion to assign an imputed income to either parent. One of the considerations in doing so may be why that parent is unemployed or underemployed. If the reason is something of that person's own doing, such as being fired or committing a crime, the judge does not have to accept that the person is justifiably unemployed and can designate some sort of income for that parent. i suggest you consult with a local family law attorney to see if you have any options.
