Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. How would I go about transferring a case to another state, after a judgment has been entered for a divorce.
A: You need to check with a Nevada attorney. There will likely be jurisdictional requirements that must be met before you can pursue any modification or action in Nevada. For example, in California, you must hold residency in the state for a prescribed amount of time before you may file in CA.
Q. I need a good pro bono lawyer. Can anyone please help before it's to late
A: Contact the State Bar for recommendations. Sometimes local Law Schools may operate free clinics that could be assistance.
Q. My mother passed away and her same sex domestic partner is avoiding me. She has presented no will. What can I do?
A: This is a question to post in the Trusts and Estates/Probate Section. While it involves some Crossover Family Law issues, the other forum members will be better equipped to answer you question. This may be time sensitive and you should seek counsel forthwith.
