Legal Answers
771 Questions Answered

Q. My parenting time was Sunday June 28th at 6 to Sunday July 5th. My son's dad refused my time and ignored me. What can I
A: This is after the fact but this situation should be addressed with the Friend of the Court unless an agreement can be reached. Neither parent may deny the other parenting time without cause or order from the court.
Q. I'm disabled and can't work my wife financially supported me throughout the marriage. Should I get alimony
A: Spousal support is fact-dependant. Other factors include length of marriage, fault for a divorce, and whether an otherwise equitable split of the estate is just. You should seek an attorney's advice.
Q. What are the chances of leniency on a 4th degree felony of fleeing, first offense and with mental health issues
A: By the facts presented, it sounds like she already caught a break by being charged with the least degree of fleeing and eluding (4th degree). Chances are her attorney may be able to negotiate further. A treatment court (mental health or veterans) may be an option as well, which would greatly increase the likelihood of no jail.
