Q. Did not sign waiver for uncontested divorce in LA. How can I submit an answer to what I disagree with?
A: After you are served, take the petition to an attorney who will discuss the procedure and what steps should be taken to protect your rights.
Q. if i haven't received child support, a phone call, nothing in almost 4 years, why does the other parent still have r
A: The other parent continues to have rights unless and until a court terminates those rights. Generally that will only happen if the state files to terminate his rights or if the child is being adopted, such as by your spouse.
Q. I am in the process of filing my divorce in Louisiana. We have no assets or children. I was told I am missing a P&D.
A: I'm assuming what you're talking about is a "PD" or a preliminary default. Once the defendant's delays for filing an answer or other responsive pleadings have passed, you have to file a preliminary default before confirming the default and taking a judgment.
Q. My moms Lawyer that drew her and her husband Will 1992 is not producing the Will to me because of conflict of interest
A: The burden of proving that your mother lacked the mental capacity to know what she was signing would fall on you. You need an attorney who is familiar with this area or law to help you. The sooner you contest the will, the better.

A: You need to discuss these issues with your custody lawyer. Also, this panel is for Louisiana, not MS.
Q. S t. Tammany judge violated La.R.S. 9:364, granting sole custody of my then, 9yr old Granddaughter. My recourse?
A: If you believe your granddaughter is not in a stable environment, you need to discuss the issue with a custody lawyer as soon as possible.
Q. Power of attorney question in Louisiana
A: I would recommend having the power of attorney drafted by a professional to ensure that it is in the correct form. It would need to be filed with the clerk of court for a bank to accept it, as they will require a certified copy of the POA.
Q. is an affidavit of reconciliation required to be reconciled in louisiana
A: No, an affidavit is not required. Whether the parties have reconciled is a matter for the judge to decide if the parties aren't in agreement.
Q. hub and I split separation he now threaten to take the oldest dog away by reg her under ESA can he do that to me ?
A: Dogs are property, just like any other property. If the dog was acquired during your marriage, it's considered community property, and you both have equal rights to the dog.
