Q. If a mother is keeping the child away from the father, what can the father do so that he can see he child?
A: If there is not custody order, father will have to file a custody complaint seeking custody. If there is a custody order and mom is violating that order, dad can file a petition for contempt. He can also file to modify the order and seek more custody time. His best bet is to consult with a local family law attorney.
Q. I am looking into a divorce no fault. I would like to know what my options. We have no items to separate.
A: You can get a no fault divorce under Sections 3301(c) or (d) of the divorce code. For a 3301(d) divorce, you need to have been separated for at least a year at the time you ask the court to file the record. For a (c) you do not have to be separated before you file, but you need to wait for 90 days from the time the complaint is filed until you ask the court to transmit the record. Both parties need to sign a consent to the divorce for a (c). Only the filing party needs to sign for a (d). You have to follow specific procedures for both of the no-fault divorces. For a (d) the non-moving party may object to the divorce by claiming you have not been separated for a year, or that the marriage is not irretrievably broken. That party can also make economic claims, even if you think there are not any claims to make. If one party makes more money than the other, that party can ask for alimony after the divorce is final, and can even ask for alimony pendente lite while the divorce is pending. Even for a simple no fault divorce, you should get the help of an experienced family law attorney who will do it correctly.
