Q. I have joint custody of my 16 and 11 year old children in NJ. My ex wants to move out of the country with the kids.
A: Thank you for your question. I'm sure the thought of your children being so far away from you is very worrisome. The short answer is no, she cannot move with the children, out of New Jersey without either your permission or a Court order. That being said, you may need to proactively file to prevent her move in case she tries to go without asking the Court's permission. There are many facets to a situation like this. The best thing you can do is consult with an experienced family law attorney to find out your rights and options.
Q. Would I owe child support on a stepchild?
A: Thank you for your question. The 4 year old child you mention already has 2 parents. You are not biologically or legally related to him. Unless you marry your girlfriend, adopt him, and then divorce you would not owe child support for that other child. That being said, you should legally protect your rights regarding custody, etc. to your unborn child if you are not planning to imminently marry your girlfriend. You should consult an experienced family law attorney who can provide individualized advice based on the totality of your circumstances.
Q. How do I respond to a motion for term of alimony if I never received it via registered mail.
A: Thank you for your question. The simple answer is you need an adjournment because you were not properly served. You can contact the Court directly and explain that you were never served. They will likely put you in touch with the Judge's law clerk. The best thing to do is to consult with experienced counsel. After you retain, your counsel will take care of the adjournment request, and with your input, draft the response. Many firms, including mine, offer free consultations that will give you legal advice specific to your situation.
