Should I Give Legal Custody?
Hi Looking For Some Advice
I Am In The Military And I Was Divorced About 3 Years Ago While I Was In Iraq My Ex Moved To Colorado Since Then I Have Had Joint Custody Of My Children I Have Paid Child Support As I Have Been Directed And I Have Even Given More When I Had It. I Know That I Can Not Always Make It To Colorado To Be With My Sons Because I Am Stationed In Oklahoma. About Two Days Ago My Ex Tells Me She Is Going To Take Me To Court So She Can Get Legal Custody On My Sons. She Tells Me She Wants It So That She Does Not Have To Ask Me For Signatures Or Come To Me In Order To Get Things Done. I Do Not Want To Give Up Legal Custody She Tells Me That It Would Make It Better For The Boy I Do Not Believe This. Even Though We Have Joint Custody She Is Never Telling Me Anything About My Sons Or Letting Me Know What Is Going On She Also Tries Very Hard To Keep My Children Away From Their Grandparents My Mom And Dad And Even Makes It Hard For Me When I Want To See Them I Think That She Is Breaking The The Rules Of The Joint Child Support. My Real Question Is Should I Give Up Legal Custody Or Not And Is She In Violation Of The Joint Custody
Please Let Me Know Thank You
What she wants is Sole Custody, which will give her 100% control. You should fight this and do more to be receiving info on the children. File a motion to enforce, and ask for her to pay a cash or certified court bond of $2000, which gets forfeited to you, should she violate your rights again to the info. Note, if the original jurisdiction was Oklahoma, you can fight Colorado getting it. Transfer of jurisdiction is not mandatory under federal law, only allowed.
There is a lot you can be doing to enforce your rights, without running up legal bills. Are you recording your conversations with her, without her knowing it? This is legal in both your states, Okla. Stat. tit. 13 § 176.3 & Colo. Rev. Stat. § 18-1.3-401.
As for your grandparents, counter file to include this in your orders, as well as a requirement that she provide transportation for when the kids come see you. Has your orders been modified for long distance?

Criminal Defense Lawyer For Kids?
I Have Always Wanted To Be A Criminal Defense Lawyer...But Now, That I'Ve Thought More About It I'M Thinking Differently...I Still Want To Defend But Not Adults...Is There A Specific Type Of Law Where The Lawyer Defends Kid Criminals? Thats What I Would Like To Do. Any Help Is Appreciated...Thanks, A Lot! :D ♥
The existing laws for Juvenile Offenders is aimed at correctional method and not punish them. Hence there is little need for a lawyer to defend them .
In fact, the following News , Published in the Hindu daily dated 29-01-2008 is interesting :-
"A person cannot be denied government employment, even in the police force, for having committed a criminal offence when he/she was a juvenile, the Madras High Court ruled on Monday"
"He said Parliament, while enacting the Act, had been careful enough to ensure there was no provision to convict or punish a juvenile in conflict with the law. The Act lays down a non penal protective system for children accused of committing criminal offences"
“No one is a born criminal...Lots of children in this country, who are not taken care of by their parents and relatives, due to poverty and other reasons, at times land into the hands of anti-social elements. The latter corrupt the minds of the juveniles and train them to develop delinquent propensities,” he said.
“In this alarming situation, it is the constitutional duty of the State to create a conducive atmosphere for juveniles to re-establish themselves in society, family life, education and employment. The juveniles should be relieved of psychological factors looming large in their minds and they should be kept free of any stigma,” the Judge observed.
Where Can I Find California Inheritance Laws?
My Wife And I Are In The 80Th. We Want To Deed Our All-Paid Residence To One Of Our Sons? Can We Just Deed To Him And His Wife? Any Implications Involved? The Property Is Valued Between 3 To 4 Hundred Thousand Dollars, About Fifty Years Old..
Yes, you can but I urge you to see a Tax Attorney and an Elder Law Attorney before you do so.
If you give your house to your son, you also give him your basis cost for the property. Since you have had the property for 50 years, I imagine that you paid under $25,000 for the home. If, in the future your son sold the home for $375,000, your son would owe Capital Gains Tax on the difference between your basis cost and the selling price. In other words he would owe 15% of the gain of $350,000 or $52,500. With inheritance comes a "stepped up basis" which means that the heirs' basis cost becomes the value of the asset on the date of death of the benefactor. If you son inherits the $375,000 house and sells it for $375,000 then he owes no Capital Gain Tax because there is no gain.
If your purpose is to save on Probate costs (which in California are set by law) you should consider a Revocable Trust or Living Trust. Given the value of your house at $400K and with other assets of $100K for a total Estate Value of $500,000, your Probate would cost would be $13,000. A Trust would cost no more than $5,000 and that would be for a very complicated estate. Having a Trust avoids Probate entirely and ensures a quick and orderly transfer of the estate to the heir.
If your purpose is to avoid paying for medical care for yourself and have Medicare and MediCal pay for your care by transferring your assets so that you are indigent and cannot pay yourself, then be aware that there is a 60 month (5 year) look back period by Medicare and MediCal. What that means is that if you do transfer assets then you are not eligible to receive MediCal or Medicare assistance for 5 years after the transfer date.
Basically it is almost always better to inherit than to receive an asset as a gift. It is also almost always better to use a Trust to transfer your assets to your heirs than to go through the delays and costs of Probate. If you get a Trust made for you by an Attorney, it will save your spouse, your estate, and your heirs possibly tens of thousands in unnecessary taxes and fees. It will cost you a few thousand, but in the long run, it is much less expensive.
Entertainment Attorney? ?
I Wanna Shoot A Demo/Pilot Thing For A Sitcom I Wrote. I Was Told I Should Get An Entertainment Attorney. What's That And Why Do I Need It?
An entertainment attorney is an attorney who specializes in entertainment law. Usually they work in either contracts or litigation.
I'm guessing the person told you that you need an entertainment attorney to write up contracts for the people you will employ to work on your demo/pilot thing. If you're in a big city, like LA, a good entertainment attorney will cost you a minimum of $200 an hour, the best go for much more.
Here are some books you should take a look at:
