9 Questions Answered
- Q. Unmarried and separated with three kids. As a single mother, what are my rights an what can I do?
- A: You can file three Complaints for Custody-Support-Parenting Time in the Middlesex Probate and Family Court. You can seek to waive the filing fees if you have a low income. After you have filed, I would suggest filing a motion for temporary orders to obtain an award of child support from the children's father, as well as the establishment of a parenting plan. I suggest you speak with an attorney who specializes in family law to discuss your options further. Good luck.
- Q. Im a dad my 12 year old daughter has been hit with her phone,punched repeatedly is this enough for me to get an attorney
- A: This question cannot be fully answered without more information. If there are allegations of physical abuse, and she does not want to live with her Mother, then you can file a complaint for modification with the Court seeking to obtain custody of her. I would suggest you also file a motion for the appointment of a Guardian Ad Litem to ascertain the parenting plan that it is your daughter's best interests. The GAL will likely interview your daughter and if she states she wants to live with you, it will help you obtain custody. I suggest you speak with an attorney who specializes in family law/child custody to discuss your options further. Good luck.
- Q. What happens directly after serving my spouse with divorce papers? Like the next step.
- A: This depends upon the circumstances of the case. If there are issues which require immediate resolution, the parties often exchange their Rule 410 mandatory disclosures, and attend what is called a temporary hearing to establish the orders which will be in place during the divorce. These can be orders relative to the payment of household expenses, child support, parenting time, etc. Rule 410 mandatory disclosures consist of tax returns, bank statements, etc. I suggest you speak with an attorney who specializes in divorce and/or family law to discuss your options further. Good luck.
