17 Questions Answered

Q. When filing for separation does the other party have to moved. There are no children between the two.
A: Unlike an Absolute Divorce on the ground of Voluntary Separation, when parties seek to divorce on the ground of Mutual Consent, there is no requirement that they live separate and apart prior to seeking to dissolve the marriage. In Maryland, a divorce may be granted on the ground of Mutual Consent so long as the following conditions are met: 1. The parties have a signed settlement agreement that resolves property issues, alimony and issues related to dependent or minor children 2. Neither party seeks to set aside the settlement agreement prior to the divorce hearing 3. The parties attach a completed child support guidelines worksheet to the settlement agreement if it includes provisions for the payment of child support 4. The court is satisfied that the settlement agreement is in the best interests of the minor or dependent children, if any
Q. My bf's ex is filing for child support and he is 17, can she receive cs for all those 17 years even tho they were marrie
A: In Maryland, child support ends when the child reaches 18 years of age. The Court may enter an Order that includes arrears back to the date of filing, not the date of separation. Your boyfriend will be required to pay those arrears in full, even after the child turns 18.
Q. Hello , I live abroad and im planning to start a business. Do you also help people outside of the US ?
A: You need not be a US citizen to register a trademark with the USPTO.
