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?
I found a good local personal injury attorney here in Hutchinson, KS, whose name is Matt Bretz, by asking another attorney friend. They all know each other and refer business to each other based on their expertise. As it turns out, Mr. Bretz used to practice in Los Angeles. I will give his bio and contact information below, but I wanted to let you know that I hired him to do an hour bonus video for a web site we have. My sister was involved in an accicent and was offered $7,000 by the responsible company but she had to have 14 surgeries as a result of the accident and they cost her hundreds of thousands of dollars. She sued them and won over $1,200,000 because of her organizational skills. She now helps others win their lawsuits. You can read more about her at www.howtowinyourlawsuit.com. She gives a one hour bonus video done by Matt Bretz offering advice on personal injuries. He packs a ton of information into that video. Here is his bio. You can call him for advice or ask for a referral to a California attorney.

Can Someone Help Me Find Legal Representation For A Property Deed Situation?
I Have A Property That I Purchased Paid For In Full. I Had An Incident Where I Was Concerned For My Saftey Due To Some Personal Issues So I Quick Claimed My Property Into My Alias Name. Later, My Mom Decided She Wanted To Take Over The Property And I Set Up Arrangements And Did A Memorandum Into Her Name That Had Already Been Quick Claimed Over Into The Alias I Used. I Never Registered The Land Contract Portion To Support That Transaction Thouroughly. My Question Is Could That Be Done? Does My Mom Legally Own This Property? I Live In Detroit Michigan. Can Anyone Refer Council In This Matter?
Unless you obtained a court order to use a fictitious name you could have some really serious legal problems, beyond RE law and into criminal law, as you could be charged with fraud.
Your mother doesn't own anything, she can not take over ownership from a nonexistent person. There is no freaking way those documents are notarized unless you also convinced a notary that a little bid of fraud was worth a few years behind bars. At this point I am not even sure you own this either unless you have the appropriate legal documentation to prove you are the "alias". With the owner not being anyone you can legally identify themselves the property is more likely going to owned by the state as abandoned property.
Start with an attorney who specializes in RE, that will at least get you started.
