705 Questions Answered

Q. My ex husband is threating to take the kids if I get married. What can I do and can he do this without reason
A: Ordinarily, this alone would not be grounds for modification of the parenting plan.
Q. If I just started a debt management agreement, can I get out of it and just file bankruptcy?
A: If you qualify, you can certainly file bankruptcy and reject the debt management agreement.
Q. Would statement in a will establish a life estate in Illinois and if not what rights does it establish.
A: This is not a conventional life estate. A conventional life estate would allow Bill to rent out the house or allow others to live in it.
Q. Can the mother of my child move out of the city and take my 5 year old away from her school/family/friends?
A: The Parenting Plan should spell this out.
Q. I'm a retired IL state employee on a pension. In a divorce, can she claim part of that pension, my sole income?
A: If you are part of SERS then she can claim part of it based on length of marriage. As to child support, this site shows how it is calculated: http://midamericalawoffice.com/illinois-child-support-estimator/
Q. If a will has been filed for a deceased person with a home, shouldn't there be a probate case file on record?
A: If the will was lodged with the court, the first thing to do is get a copy of it and read it. It may be that the will not probated because there was nothing to probate. The house may have been in joint tenancy with someone else, in which case it became property of other person and probate was not necessary.
Q. Hi if you married and your husband doesn’t work but he’s on child support and the wife work who will pay child support
A: You can estimate the child support at this website: http://midamericalawoffice.com/illinois-child-support-estimator/
Q. If 2 people have a child, never married, & there is no court order can 1 parent involve the police to take the child
A: She needs to get a paternity case filed so the court can decide a parenting plan for the child.
Q. My mother recently died without a will. Should I wait for the state to contact me about probate? She owns real estate.
A: The state is not going to contact anybody. You are an heir and have a right to probate her estate. That means collect her assets, including selling the house, and pay her bills. What is left goes to her heirs.
