Legal Answers
924 Questions Answered

Q. I, who is the plaintiff, has a monetary judgement against the defendant whom I evicted as a tenant.
A: If the Judgment gave her a payment plan and she does not comply with it, you file a Rule to Show Cause why she shouldn't be held in contempt for failure to comply. This gets more attention. Let alone under the table, sometimes people don't even earn enough to be able to garnish anything.
Q. I live in Illinois does the new income share model take into account other children from a different relationship?
A: The calculator for child support and the Financial Affidavit are for different purposes. The Financial Affidavit is not only to see income and expenses but also to determine division of assets and liabilities.
Q. My father recently bought a house without the seller having the title in his name. Is this a legal sale?
A: Was he transferring his rights such as from an estate or some contract he had with the owner. You need to find out who owns the house. Check with the Recorder of Deeds.
Q. What’s a reasonable custody agreement if one parent wants to move out of state
A: Every case is different. There has to be give and take. Far better to work it out than to take a chance in court. Sample Parenting Plan: Click Parenting Plan on the page: https://midamericalawoffice.com/divorce-forms/
Q. How do I respond to a petition for cause? How do I defend my majority parent appointment?
A: If your daughter has been going to school where your are for the past year and the father went along with it, the court may very well find that there was an agreement of the parties to modify the parenting plan. Why not come up with a new parenting plan that works for both of you. Click on the parenting plan on this page to download a sample: https://midamericalawoffice.com/divorce-forms/
Q. Is a agreement for custody at a lawyers office legal? They said it never got in to the judge and there is only one copy
A: Custody matters have to be approved by the judge. Until the judge reviews and approves a custody agreement, there is nothing binding.
Q. Can the custodial parent of a child file for back child support of a now 26 year old even though they never filed before
A: Usual rule is child support starts from the filing of the paternity case or when the other parent is served with the summons. Child support ends at age 18 or finishing high school but no later than age 19.
Q. Child is in HS and custodial parent still doesn't work. Paying $1700/month. Can court force her to work and contribute?
A: The court can impute income to a non-working parent. Every case is different.
Q. Do I need to file a restraining order against my ex wife?
A: Go back to court to have the Parenting Plan modified.
