Legal Answers
328 Questions Answered
Q. Currently on 50/50 parenting time. Ex is refusing to take kids to school on her time. What can be done? Emergency order?
A: I am sorry to hear about your situation. Will your ex agree to allow you to have care in order to take them to school? Can they take a school bus? The children do need to attend school. Generally an emergency involves abuse or neglect so it would be best to look at options outside of an emergency hearing if possible. Though school attendance is very important. Because school is not in session yet, this sounds like a statement of something that your ex says may happen in the future. The Court can n to get involved until the harm actually occurs. Your ex may resolve this issue by the time school starts. If she does not and you are not granted an emergency hearing, you could file for a modification of parenting time and ask for an expedited temporary orders hearing.
Q. Can I ask the divorce court to terminate maintenance payment if it enables my ex to harass/stalk me at my residence?
A: I am sorry to hear about your situation. Non modifiable means non modifiable. As far as harassment or stalking, you can make a report to the police or if you are in fear of imminent danger could petition for a protection order.
Q. If I am not yet divorced, can my spouse work for the town that I am a trustee for?
A: I am sorry to hear about your situation. This question is not covered under domestic relations law. It sounds as though your question may relate to conflict of interest employment issues. You may wish to post in employment law.
