Legal Answers
869 Questions Answered

Q. Non custodial father seeking overnight weekends...
A: Whether a judge will grant the legitimation and visitation request will depend on whether the judge finds that it will be in the child's best interest. If the mother has serious concerns about the child's safety, she should hire an attorney to fight the legitimation action if the father has not shown any interest in having a relationship with the minor child in the past.
Q. If there has been significant lapse in time...
A: Abandonment charges are sought when a parent has not financially supported their child for a period of more than 30 days. If the non-custodial parent is consistently paying child support, abandonment charges would not be appropriate.
Q. My husband I bought our house before we were married. We put it in his name b/c my credit was bad.
A: Possibly. If the home was purchased with the intent of the parties to be the marital home after the marriage, it may still be considered marital. You need to discuss your specific facts with an attorney to determine your options.
