Child Support-What Would You Do/Recommend? (Legal Advice And Divorced Mothers Only Please)?
If The Mother Has Full Custody, And The Father Is Out Of The Country, Remarried, Working A Good Job (Building Engineer), And Obviously Doing Very Well Financially (Has Brand New Car, Is Buying A House, Father Is Us Citizens And The Country Is Not One Of The Countries Who Have A Child Support Enforcement Agreement) . The Father Has Verbally Agreed To Pay $200 A Month (But Actually Pays Whenever He Feels Like It, Not On A Monthly Basis).
*For A Country Which Does Not Have A Child Support Enforcement Agreement, The Consequence For The Father Would Be The Revocation Of His Us Passport If And When He Tries To Re-Enter The Country, And After The Owed Amount Is $5000 Or More. The Information About The Father's Earnings Is Not Available, But Can Be Obtained.
Choice A: Not File Child Support And Receive The $200 (Whenever).
Choice B: File For A Child Support And Wait Until The Father Comes Back To The Country To Get The $5000 Or More.
I Am Trying To Find Out More Information About Child Support And International Law. Whichever Insight You Can Offer Regarding That Is Very Helpful. Please Back Up Your Answer If You Can (Web Links, Reasoning For It, Etc). Thanks.
You need to file for child support and being that you are in the United States, his wages will be garnished for the child support amount. I don't know if his company has an office or headquarters in the states, but they would be legally required to comply with a court order. Even a lot of international companies will comply with court orders, as they do not want any trouble.
I would 100% file. It is not as simple as saying "He's out of the country, oh well." He will have to respond to the petition of the court, or it will automatically be ruled in your favor. If you are divorced, then you would go back for a reevaluation of the child support agreement.
Has paternity been established, or were you married? With his income being decent, you will also get more than $200.00 per month.
Your best bet would be to contact your local child support enforcement agency for assistance. They know everything about laws in every country, and all the available legal loop holes!
Basically, you have nothing to loose!
Legal Advice Pertaining To Copyright Infringement.?
I Am In Need Of Legal Advice To A Matter Pertaining To Copyright Infringement.
I Am A Small Business Owner Who Runs A Web And Graphic Design Business. Recently I Created A Dvd
Cover For A Person Where My Logo Brand Appeared On The Front And The Back Of The Cover.
It Has Just Come To My Knowledge That These Persons Have Removed My Logo Off Of The Front Of The Dvd
Cover Without My Permission. The Dvd Is Being Sold Nation Wide So They Are Making Profit Off Of It.
So My Questions Is, By These Persons Removing My Logo Identity Off Of The Front Of The
Cover, Does This Constitute Copyright Infringement? Do I Have A Just Cause To Take Legal Action?
First of all, if you need legal advice, you must seek the advice of an attorney. While I can impart some general information, nothing I say constitutes legal advice. Remember that your attorney has a legal duty as to your interests; strangers on the Internet do not.
As to your question, removing a logo, in and of itself, has nothing to do with copyright infringement. For example, I can scrape off the Toyota logo off a car and sell it. Copyright infringement is essentially the appropriation of copyrighted material without permission. Now if your DVD is being copied and sold without your permission, then that might constitute copyright infringement.
A big fact that is missing here (and one reason why you need to see an attorney) is the contract between you and your client. The written contract is going to spell out the rights your client has to the DVD you created for them. To the extent that the contract does not explicitly set out those rights or a written contract does not exist, then you may have to rely on other factors including state contract law.
Is This Going To Effect My Child Custody Case?
Me And My Husband Are In Divorce Process Started This Year, But He Wants To File 2008 Taxes Separately And Claim Our Child , We'Re Been Separated Since November And I'Ve Had The Child Since But Is Visiting With Him Right Now, Can He Do That? And Is This Gonna Effect My Custody Issue?
Since you two were together for the majority of the year, if he was the primary income earner, than yes he may be able to take the deduction, but it will have no affect on your custody case. The best results would be for the two of you to file jointly with any return going into a trust fund to be divided according to the division of assets in the divorce.
As for the child, why not do what's best rather than what's best for you two?
Bird Nest Custody
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
What Do You Think Of Defense Attorneys?
How About Jose Bias? I Asked My Cousin Who Is A Da This Question And I Was Surprised By Her Answer. She Told Me That &Quot;She Doesn'T Respect The Ones Who Only Take The Defendants Money And Do Not Practice Good Law.&Quot; What Do You Think Of Criminal Defense Attourneys?
Every Defendant has the right to a lawyer. They are just doing their job of providing this Constitutionally guaranteed service.
I know a lot of DA's and Defense Attorneys, and most have nothing but the utmost respect for one another, because they understand the system requires them both to be there, and the cases aren't personal for any of the lawyers. DAs know the defendant is going to have an attorney, why would they hate the attorney simply because he is doing his job?
Most people who think defense lawyers are the scum of the earth tend to not understand the criminal court system, and also seem to think that these lawyers honestly believe all their clients are innocent (here's a hint, they know that 99% are guilty, but still entitled to a legal defense).

He Never Gives Me Money And I Also Had A Protective Order Against Him For 2 Years. It Expired In Nov. 2008
I Live In Texas
You should have no problem in getting custody, divorce, and be able to move. The custody outcome will depend upon his response to being served. If he makes a counter petition, and requests visitation, the court may then request a parenting plan, outlining the details of visitation. The fact that you had an injunction against him, may not preclude him from his right to see his child, nor the fact that he has not paid child. If he is deemed dangerous to the child, then the Court will act. Prepare your case, get yourself an attorney, or at least some valid legal advice if you plan to file pro se. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may make application for legal aid.
Best of Luck.
