Legal Answers
110 Questions Answered

Q. if im on child and have another child that im about to be on support for will the first mothers payments decrease?
A: You would need to go to court and get the first child support order modified to accommodate the fact that you now have another child to support. It will not just change automatically.
Q. I'm planning to divorce my husband. Our home is his separate property. Can I get any of the equity after we split?
A: Where marital funds have been used on a spouse's separate property, there may be reimbursement claims available against that spouse. I recommend talking with a family law attorney near you to more thoroughly discuss your situation.
Q. I have been trying to serve the father for over a year, it is to allow me and the child to leave state.
A: Depending on how he is dodging the process server, it may be possible to either get alternative service (e.g. posting the citation, petition and orders to his residence/work door) or service by publication (i.e. running a notice/citation in the newspaper). Your local law library might be of some assistance moving forward.
Q. can i still file for child support for my daughter even tho she just had a baby and is only 17years old and school
A: You likely can still file for child support despite her status as a parent. As for his threat to give up his rights: that isn't something a parent can do without approval of the court, and typically courts are very hesitant to let a parent relinquish his or her parental rights solely to avoid child support obligations.
Q. I bought my home several years BEFORE I got married. Is it considered seperate propoerty?
A: Assets acquired by a spouse before the marriage are separate property.
Q. What can I do if my wife took my daughter out of Texas to California with out my consent.
A: You should visit with local family law counsel for a full consultation. Generally speaking, unless there are orders stating otherwise, a parent married to the other parent is free to take his/her children to different states without consent from the other parent.
Q. I lost custody of my daughter when she was 7 but now she is 16 and wants to live with me, what can I do if anything?
A: Without knowing why you lost custody, I would recommend getting a consultation with a local family lawyer. Depending on the facts of your situation, you may be able to modify the previous orders of the court to allow for your daughter to reside with you.
Q. My friend is dealing. With 2 different possession cont sub. Charges in 2 diff towns. If she doesn't go to court can they
A: If she chooses not to go to court when she is supposed to then the State will have the option of filing bail jumping charges against her.
Q. Can I conduct business in a different state than the one I am incorporated in?
A: Generally speaking, yes. However, the state you want to do business might require you to register your business with them, to obtain a license for your type of business, to register for sales tax, etc. You should consult an attorney in the jurisdiction you are wanting to do business in to see what requirements apply to you and your business.
