Q. I have one biological son and one that is not biologically mine but I had signed a VAP for. Can I do visitation for my
A: When you signed the VAP you became the father. The court decides on the visitation. The mother may argue that one child should not be favored.
Q. Is my ex entitled to a percentage of the sale of my home? My current husband and I built a new home and then sold one.
A: Sale of your home is not income. It is no different than selling stocks and bonds. However, income from the proceeds might be considered income to calculate child support.
Q. I adopted my soon to be ex wifes daughter. She uses her against me and I am at no end. Is there a way to unadopt?
A: Looks like there is no court order. When you get divorced, there will be a parenting plan. After the parenting plan is entered, you can force her to comply with it through contempt proceedings.
Q. I have not received court ordered child support for 27 months. What can I do?
A: Contact Illinois Health and Family Services. They help people get child support. If the father is a true dead beat, even they may have problems.
Q. What right does the father have to his child? Mother&Father lives 1/2 blk frm each other.Can the father fight 4 50%cust?
A: If the mother does not comply with the court order, the remedy is to take her to court for contempt. If he can show that it is in child's best interests, father may request a new parenting plan which gives him more parenting time.
Q. Can I deny visitation due to bed bug infestation. Child have hundreds of bites when they come back from father's home
A: The procedure is to ask the court to terminate or modify father's parenting time until the matter is resolved.
Q. Are there laws that require you to be the same ethnicity as the baby you want to adopt in Illinois?
A: No. Unless it has to do with American Indians where there may be some special rules.
Q. If I filed and received my divorce in TN and I now live in IL if I want to take my spouse back to court do I need a TN
A: If you are transferring the case to Illinois, you would hire an Illinois attorney. You cannot just transfer a case. You have to have right to do so. If the case stays in TN, you would consult with a TN attorney.
Q. My mother, who died in 2013, had a trust. My sister is the executor of the trust. My sister has not closed the estate
A: Trusts and Probate Estates are two different things. In a trust, there is a trustee who carries out the provisions of the trust. If you don't have a copy, you need to get one to see if she is carrying out the provisions of the trust. If the deceased had assets which were not in the trust, then probate is used to dispose of them.
