Q. My wife filed notice of voluntary dismissal, do i have option to continue that petition again as like before?
A: Since you didn’t file a counter petition, the case is now “dead”. You will now need to file a new petition. That is why it is important to always file an answer and counter-petition if you want to see the dissolution through the end.
Q. Hi, I live in a very stressful home, I want to divorce and wanted to know the steps that I have to take.
A: Your first step should be to schedule a consult with one of us divorce attorneys. You mentioned there are 2 houses and it appears you are both still living in 1 - you didn’t say who is living in the other. Tou also mentioned that he want to stay in the house - you didn’t say if you object? The status of the homes plus you and your spouse’s incomes are relevant factors that should be discussed with your attorney who will then strategize the best course in dissolving your marriage.
Q. Can I take my kids to my mothers house when I separate??
A: First of all, sorry to hear you are in an abusive relationship. You should take appropriate measures to protect yourself including speaking scheduling a consult with an attorney for guidance. Second, much more information is needed before you can receive a specific answer to your question- for eg, is your mother living in the same State as you are. Generally, a person is able to take their child anywhere that is appropriate unless there is an order prohibiting such actions; removing the child from the State during or prior to the filing of a court proceeding may be problematic. Again, you should schedule a consult with an attorney to obtain specific advise.
