Legal Answers
43 Questions Answered

Q. Do California Loan Modifications need to be notarized by all parties and filed with the County Recorders Office?
A: Only the deed of trust is recorded. When the loan is modified, it's just the underlying note that changes, but the deed of trust securing the loan does not really change and therefore no new deed of trust is recorded.
Q. Just received notice of trustee's sale from california reconveyance company (arm of Chase?). NOW WHAT?
A: If you have an attorney, you should ask your attorney what to expect. If the attorney sues the bank, I would think that the attorney will also request a temporary restraining. Like I said, ask your attorney as your attorney knows the facts of your case and can best advise you.
Q. Can my ex wife open a child support case in California when Idaho has found that they have jurisdiction?
A: Is she asking for the California court to issue a new child support order that is different from the Idaho order or is she asking for the California court to enforce the Idaho child support order? Since your divorce and child support were handled by the Idaho courts and your ex wife and children still reside there, Idaho support guidelines should apply because Idaho has continuous exclusive jurisdiction. If you respond to the child support motion, you should make it clear that you are not making a general appearance and that you are appearing for the sole purpose of challenging jurisdiction to modify child support. I would recommend that you hire an attorney to represent you. If you don't have the money to do so, you may want to consider a Prepaid Legal membership (only $17/month) which would entitle you to ask questions on unlimited # of issues of an attorney and they can help you represent yourself. You can ask questions involving laws in all 50 states, which means you can also ask questions pertaining to Idaho child support law.
