What Happens In A Divorce Court Hearing?
Ill Be Having My First Court Hearing Next Month With My Ex. We Have A 7 Month Old Boy. She Currently Is Not Letting Me See Him Unless One Day A Week. I Have Asked Her If I Could See Him Some Other Day During That Week But She Never Responds My Texts Or Never Answers My Calls, When I Say Never Its Never. And The Times I Have Seen My Son, My Exs Mom Is Always The One Handing My Son Too Me And Has Giving Me Drama. I Dont Want My Ex'S Mom Involved Between My Son And My Ex. Also Another Thing To Point Out, My Ex Has Told Me Were I Been Lately Without Me Knowing She Was Following Me Or Anything. Can I Do Something About That?
Here's - among other things - a few things that you need to wrap your brain around.
The very FIRST thing you need, is to get a paternity test done; why? Think about this: In California alone, we have over 8,000 men paying child support for children that DNA evidence has proven they didn’t father. Most of the time in scenarios such as this, the “Daddy” assumes he is indeed the biological father and does all the right things, i.e. pays his child support, meets his visitation schedule, buys clothing and extras to have when the kid(s) is/are with him. Then, a bit of time passes, and one day “Daddy” bends down and says: “Hey, you don’t look like me” and THEN has a paternity test done - TOO LATE!
With the results in hand, Dad happily goes running back to court to have his child support altered or stopped altogether. What most judges say in cases like this is brutally simple: “Sorry pal, you waited too long to challenge paternity, keep paying at the current level” Trust me, this happens every day all across the country.
Next, never, EVER raise your voice or show anger when picking up, or dropping off the child; if she's keeping you from the child, the court will straighten her out on that. If you have to forgo a visit because grandma is being nasty, so be it, leave, drive away and KEEP RECORDS! I always used a voice recorder, then wrote my notes down later. If you show anger, the court will have you in handcuffs before you can spell your last name.
Next, be ready for the worst on your court date, and resist the urge to speak out of turn; be patient. Have good notes, and you’ll get your chance to speak. Let her shoot her mouth off, resist, resist, resist the urge to roll your eyes, speak out of turn, or make any gestures or scoff noises, anything like that. Judges HATE that
Here’s another tidbit for you: In U.S. divorce and custody cases, mothers are awarded primary physical custody of minor children - when such children are involved - over 90% of the time. Get it? That means, child support is going to be a big part of your life for the next 17 years, 5 months.
Get the DNA test done ASAP and if the kid is indeed yours, the court will set a visitation schedule based upon your work schedule, your proximity to where the child lives, child care etc. Start looking for your own child care provider; you don‘t want granny in your life any more than you have to.
The court will also look at your income and her income side by side, as well as both of your tax returns for the last 2 years; this is the “guideline” the court uses to set child support amounts; forget your expenses, the court doesn‘t care.
Hold onto your lug nuts there guy, its going to be a bumpy ride and again, get that paternity test done ASAP and no matter the cost. If that child isn’t yours, you’ll thank me till the day you die and you‘ll save thousands and thousands of your own dollars.
Good luck, and if it turns out the child is yours, go to Amazon and get Dr. Warren Farrell’s book, Father and Child Reunion.
Hang in there, and stay calm….
Can Anyone Recommend A Good Personal Injury Attorney In California?

Employment attorneys help unions, employers and employees with legal problems related to labor and employment issues, according to the American Bar Association's Section of Labor and Employment Law.

How Much Do Solicitors Get Paid?
I Will Be Finished My Law Degree In Ireland By 2016 Hopefully! How Much Would I Be Earning If I Do Become A Solicitor In Ireland
Not sure about Ireland, but in the U.K. solicitors practicing family law do very well and always seem to be busy, drive flash cars and live in huge houses. To deal with my Uncle's probate (straight forward paper work) I was quoted £45 to write a letter and £15 to open a letter, plus £150 + VAT per hour, plus 1% of his estate. Not bad considering most solicitors delegate probate work to office clerks who do the admin and the solicitor just signs the documents. I didn't pay it, I just did the whole lot myself. When it comes to divorce settlements, my brother had to pay his solicitor £4,200 for a routine amicable divorce which was settled by tribunal. One top divorce lawyer at a famous solicitor in South Yorkshire charges £500 an hour. .... Just a guess, but I reckon any poor solicitor is not worth his/her salt !
What Is The Criminal Justice System?
I Find It Hard Understanding The Ones On The Net, Can Someone Explain It To Me? And I Live In Canada So Maybe What Canada Has To Do With It?
It comprises all the institutions within government(local, state and federal) that have contact with the accused from the moment of making the criminal laws all the way through incarceration and parole or probation. Example: A law was enacted making it a criminal offense to steal property of another. John was arrested by local authorities and tried and convicted at a local trial. He was represented by a criminal defense lawyer. He was sentenced to 14 months in the federal prison followed by 36 months of parole. He appealed the conviction and sentence unsuccessfully and was incarcerated. While in prison he underwent many psychological tests. He served his time and completed his parole.
All the people John had contact with and those that wrote the criminal code are part of the criminal justice system. Hope that helps.
If We Are Filing For A Simple, No Fault Divorce, Do We Need To Fill Out A Confidential Petition Addendum?
Yes you do. The reason for the confidential petition addendum is to include sensitive information like SSNs, Credit Card Numbers, etc. that are usually on the Stipulation/Separation Agreement and/or the Complaint and Final Decree. Those documents are public records, so anyone digging into your file will be able to obtain enough information to steal your identity. It's really not a complicated form at all.
