Question:

I am asking this question for my son who is a solidier in Baghdad at this present time. He got married under false pretenses before he was being depoyed and he wanted to get out of the marriage ASAP. How can he get that taken care of since he is overseas?

Answer:

He will need to get a Petition of file and get her served. He will most likely need to pursue a divorce particularly if he hopes to do so quickly. It can be filed while he is overseas, but it may not be able to be finalized in his absence unless his wife cooperates. Generally, for a divorce to be granted, it is required that at least one of the parties appear in person in court at the time the divorce is granted.

Question:

We do not have anything from the courts here in Maryland. I would like to know how I set up auto withdrawal from State of Maryland job as a Correctional officer; I am currently sending money orders. I am paying $400.00 per month my yearly salary is $xxx my wife makes $xxx per year at her full time job and about $xxxx or more per year as a Preacher. Thank You, John Dyson 64th Avenue No. 5 Riverdale, MD 20737 (240) 582-7769 home (860) 818-7664 cell

Answer:

First, I must tell you I am not licensed to practice law in Maryland. I am not sure what you mean by "we do not have anything from the courts here in Maryland" Do you mean there is no court order for child support or that it is not an order out of Maryland? If there is no court order then you need to determine if getting a court order is in your best interest(it usually is). If the court order is from another state, contact that state. You should be able to pay by income withholding or through an EFT( money taken directly from checking acct). Contact the child support clerk in the county issuing the child support order.

Question:

My son turned 16 and does not live with his mother but lives next door with his Aunt. Right now my Child Support payments are 20% of my gross income this includes bonuses and overtime. Can I have my payment changed to a set amount and lowered since he is older now?

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Georgia. Georgia has recently changed their child support guidelines. They are no longer based on percentages like your support order. You can request a modification from the court based upon the change of circumstances with your child.

Question:

After a Marriage of 20 + years, I have been separated from my wife since June 2004. I currently do not reside in N.C. but my wife and my 3 children are still in N.C. One will be 18 on Dec 30th, and one will be 16 on July 19th, and one will turn 20 on July 31st. I have just been approved for social security disability. I am due a monthly check as well as a lump sum distribution for being disabled since September 2004. My eligible children will get money every month. I would like to get a divorce when I receive my money. My question is: Is she entitled to any of my social security disability money?

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Virginia. No, she does not directly get any of your benefits, however you may still be paying her a portion if she qualifies for spousal support. Also, she may get a portion of it for the children, as part of child support.

Question:

Can I move if their is nothing in the court systems. I want take my child out of state with me.

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Virginia. In most states your Divorce Decree determines if you can move without the express consent of the other parent. However some states under law do not allow you to move unless you have the other spouse's consent. I suggest you review your Decree and perhaps consult with a local attorney to be sure prior to your move.
