QUESTIONS

  • Our original divorce decree did not stipulate payment for secondary education. Can this be modified now that the children are 18 and in college. Child Support payments are still being made.
  • After being fired from my job I began collecting unemployment. Now they are fighting it . They have not appeared for the phone hearing and now are re-appealing. How do I get help?
  • I have been victim of domestic violence for the past 15 years. I stayed with my husband for the sake of my son, my husband has been arrested any times and the police and CPS have been called by myself and my 14yr old son. I purchased gun and have a concealed carry permit. He came at me last week and I shot him twice to keep him from killing me. Now I have been charged with 2 counts of aggravated assault. I do not have the resources to defend myself. I am out o bail for now but do not have the balance of my bond. I need help asap. Thank you.
  • I got arrested on October 12 2014. I did not receive the summons to appear in court on November 19th. now I have two warrants out for my arrest if I turn myself in will I have to stay in jail or will I be released that day
  • MY HUSBAND ABANDONED ME 3 YRS AGO, HOW CAN I GET A DIVORCE AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE,I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP THE HOUSE THAT I'VE BEEN PAYING EVER SINCE HE LEFT OUR CHILDREN ARE ALL GROWN
  • My friend's fiance just had a baby. It was the happiest moment of his life. Then a week later, his fiance decided she that she felt trapped. She took the baby lied to file a restraining order against him so he can't see his baby. Can you please advise the best possible thing he can do to get his baby back?
  • I gave revocable guardianship to my mom when I moved out of state so the kids could finish that school year and I started my new job. Now that I have petitioned to revoke guardianship, she is suing me for custody. I am so far and not sure how to handle this.
  • Is the self-help booklet available in Spanish?
  • My mother passed and she has had livestock which she paid the pasture fees and a vehicle she paid for. The problem is the vehicle is in my brothers name and she had him care for animals when she was not able to. Now, are the property now his or should it be probated to all the living children.
  • My felony conviction has been set aside. How do I now answer job app question that ask if I have "any felony convictions" or that include an exclusion of "annulled, expunged, or sealed convictions". I now know my case disposition is "set aside" (not guilty, not expunged). Based upon I read in this article, I thought I would be able to deny the felony question on job apps but none of the job apps I've seen have asked for "prior" convictions. I have been logging those questions just in case I had someone to ask on how to respond now that I have set aside order.
