35 Questions Answered

Q. I was ordered to take a mental exam for custody and a drug test ive done both but the court wont set a date for visits
A: Do you have an attorney? You need an experienced child custody attorney to assist you. Have you seen the psychological report? Your attorney will need to review that to determine how to proceed?
Q. Due to the pandemic my ex hasn’t paid child support for 5 months because he was laid off. Does he still owe it to me?
A: No, you owe him nothing. For him to change the support he owes you now, he would need to file a motion to modify. If you file for contempt for his non-payment, that might prompt him to do so.
Q. My mother is separated from an abusive long term relationship. What are some of her rights she should be aware of?
A: There are not enough facts here to provide specifics. She should try to gather all documents she can on his income and their assets and debts. She should then seek a consultation with an experienced family law attorney in your area.
