Legal Answers
364 Questions Answered

Q. Ex-husband died, we had 2 kids. His live in girlfriend put all of his assets in storage & claiming they were hers.
A: Your children have priority as they are his heirs unless he had a Will stating otherwise. You also have a child support arrears claim against his estate and should definitely contact counsel ASAP about the arrears and the estate in general as he sounds like he had an interest in real estate and therefore the estate would include that as well unless he had title as a joint tenant with his brother.
Q. Is the executor required to notify beneficiaries of what is happening with the estate?
A: If your sister is not ageing to have her counsel respond to you, you can either try contacting her directly yourself or engage counsel on your own behalf to seek information as to the expected distribution and timing. It may be that there are no problems and you will learn that you will be receiving your share soon- or if there are issues the attorney can inform you about their significance and effect on the estate and your distribution.
Q. Hello! I just received an answer but have a question about the answer... (Thank you btw)
A: "Silent" means if the Order does not so state.
Q. Is it legal for a parent to “spank” a four year old with a hard wooden spoon to g t him to be potty trained ?
A: Corporal punishment is not a favorable method and may be considered abuse or neglect especially if it is not a singular isolated instance and is a practice. The child could be harmed physically and emotionally. Consult your child's pediatrician on potty training techniques.
Q. If my ex needs to go to therapy for a fractured relationship with our child, am I responsible for half ?
A: The Court Order would normally state who is responsible for payment for the therapy services. If it is silent then it would be treated like other medical services.
Q. Hello I am wondering about custody agreements. My exhusband doesn’t follow the agreed to schedule of custody.
A: It appears that he is in Contempt of your agreement if it was embodied in a Court Order or Judgment. If so, you can file a Contempt Complaint and also a Modification petition of Visitation and also potentially of Child Support if your child's health issues will be ongoing for a significant period of time. The caution here is that the Court would reasonably expect your parents to contribute to the household they are residing in and include a figure for what could be expected for their contribution for room and board and possibly baby-sitting.
Q. If both parties want a divorce and don’t share any assets or kids do they still have to give financial documents?
A: Yes, the Probate & Family Court Judge needs to ascertain whether the provisions of a Separation Agreement are fair and reasonable in view of the parties' circumstances and hence, requires the completed and sworn to Financial Statements on the Court's Financial Statement form from both parties.
Q. My ex lost child to CPS. I was contacted. How do I go about getting custody back from the state?
A: You need to establish paternity as it appears you have not done so before. You will also need to seek custody and cooperate with the DCF. I urge you to engage counsel ASAP.
Q. My parents have had custody for 5.5 years.....alot of stuff has gone down but i recently moved in with my parents
A: Is this a guardianship of minor case? If so then you can petition the Probate Court and if you are indigent you can also request counsel be appointed on your behalf.
