The best way to address the issue of the non-payment of alimony is to file a motion to enforce the final judgment and for contempt since your former husband has not complied with the prior court orders.  In this process you can seek to have the alimony and the past due alimony paid through an income withholding order.  This motion can also address the issue of your name on the mortgage and ensure that is resolved as well. ...

What can happen to my father for lying to CPS?

Answered 3 days ago by attorney Renea Overstreet   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Mostics: Family Lawyer
You can let CPS know what's going on. If you don't feel safe living with your father, they will take steps to make sure you feel safe, including removing you from his care if they think he is a danger to you because of the choices he makes.

Can u get married to someone throw the mail

Answered 3 days ago by attorney Renea Overstreet   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Mostics: Family Lawyer

You would have to file a Modification suit asking the court to recognize you as the father instead of the other man. You need the current order to be modified so that you can be declared the biological father of the child. Do you know if the current legal father knows about you? If he wants to remain the father, you may have a problem. However, if he's on board with you, it will be easier for you to get the court to sign a new order. You will also have to get another DNA test done through a court order so it will be acceptable by the court. You might find some helpful information here: www.texaslawhelp.org... Read More

qdro

Answered 5 days ago by attorney David B. Karp   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Mostics: Family Lawyer
You can hire a lawyer to draft a QDRO, but most family lawyers use outside companies to employ to draft the documents. In milwaukee, try Divorce financial services or Delphi Consultants in Pott Washington. The cost is around $300-$600 and usually each party pays half. It has to be paid up front in full, before they will draft.... Read More

Unfortunately, your question cannot be answered in this forum. elawyers.info offers general information and not legal advice.  Legal advice is based on the specific facts in a case, as applied to the existing law.

That depends on what your belief is, and what your objectives are.  Either party can file a parentage action at any time which will quite promptly result in an order for a paternity test, as discussed here.  If she files for child support through the D.A. and you protest for non-parentage, they too will order paternity testing.  You probably should review the posted materials here on child custody, visitation and support, as well as paternity.  If you wish to check out the self-help forms, look here.  Your best bet is to consult with a family law specialist to go over all of your rights, obligations, and options....

Can I move out with my girls?

Answered 10 days ago by attorney Aaron G. Walsh   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Mostics: Family Lawyer
It’s not quite as simple as what you want to do, and it is not as simple as what he is threatening to do. As married individuals, you have joint and equal legal custody at this time.  If you don’t get the court involved, and just move out, he probably will make good on his threat to go to a judge and get an order. You need to  take it to a Judge first.  There are a lot of issues that go into custody.  Especially if he has a history of acting on the anger management problem you mentioned, the judge needs to know all of that as well. This doesn’t mean you won’t get custody of your girls, but you do need to do it the right way. ... Read More

Can I go pick up my daughter without any issues from the law?

Answered 14 days ago by attorney Heather Cherepkai   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Mostics: Family Lawyer
If you have an open investigation then DCF can keep you in Florida, but if there is no open case or any investigator contacting you then you should be free to leave the state with your daughter and if DCF has any issue then they may verify that your daughter is safe through Alabama's social services. ...
