Legal Answers
961 Questions Answered
Q. My court doc says I will be jailed for lack of payment of a student loan from my divorce decree. Can I be jailed 4 that?
A: Yes, you can be jailed for failure to meet your financial obligations pursuant to your divorce decree. If you are not financially able to meet these obligations, you should consult with an attorney to discuss your options.
Q. My wife and I are getting separated and she has my car in another state. What can I do legally to get it back
A: You're going to need to file for divorce and have the judge decide who gets the car.
Q. If I am getting a divorce and I agree do I have to answer the summons
A: Yes, even though you agree to the divorce, you may not agree to all of the things that your spouse is requesting in the divorce. If you do not have a settlement agreement that is being filed with the court, I would highly suggest that you file an answer and counterclaim for divorce to protect your interests.
