    Not eligible for child support due to the divorce decree?

    No, that hearing is what I was going through Social Services to arrange, which is what my lawyer told me needed to be done. I am beginning to wonder if what my attorney told me in August was speculation on his part instead of something that had been discussed and agreed upon between him and the...

    Not eligible for child support due to the divorce decree?

    Minnesota On August 16 my ex and I agreed on a divorce settlement. The judge approved and signed off on the settlement on September 6. Child support is in the decree with this wording, "Petitioner has supported the children financially over the past year and is not seeking child support from the...

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    This will probably be my final update on the cases. The soon-to-be ex's contempt of court hearing was scheduled for Friday the 16th. I had my lawyer contact her lawyer to see if we could meet ahead of time to come to some sort of a settlement, so we met an hour before the contempt of court...

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    Another update. I requested and received an extension of the Order for Protection. The judge extended, without a hearing, the OFP for two years. The soon-to-be ex then requested a hearing, which was scheduled last week. She then did not show up for the hearing so the judge ruled that the OFP is...

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    Quick questions. I just saw online that the woman I am divorcing had a warrant issued for her arrest yesterday. All it says is that she "Violated the conditions of release" and "Failure to appear". Since there were not any hearings scheduled, could this warrant be for not showing up for a court...

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    The judge made his ruling today on the request for a default judgment. It took him 83 days to make the ruling. His ruling is 11 pages long. I will give the judge good marks for being thorough, even if I am not happy with what he has ruled. He has denied my request for a default judgment saying...

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    It's been a month since I have given an update. On June 6 she did end up pleading guilty to two of the lesser charges as part of a plea barbain. There's a sentencing hearing schedule for August 7. I will be presenting a victim impact statement at that hearing. I will be asking for a long DANCO...

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    Here's an update on the criminal and divorce cases. At the last minute she agreed to a plea bargain on May 6. The plea hearing is going to be on June 5. However, on May 10 a judge issued 3 warrants for her arrest for violating the terms of her release. My best guess is that she has failed yet...

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    Thank you for the responses. I appreciate it. I found out yesterday that she has refused, again, to plead guilty to reduced charges where her penalty would have been a $300 fine, two years of probation, and 90 days in jail (all stayed). I also found out that this trial is going to be just on...

    Yes, but the divorce is not completed.

    It's going to cost me a small fortune to be a witness.

    Minnesota I was the victim of a domestic assault last summer. I just received a subpoena to appear in court as a witness. I am under contract to work 184 days per year. My gross salary is $77,000. My employer, a public school district, is claiming that since this situation isn't covered in...

    Discovery ignored again. Now what?

    That's a good point about how much money she might have. I don't know if she has $6,000 or $60,000. Right now we can't even come close to an agreement because she has never responded to any of my settlement proposals or made her own proposal. Even during mediation she did not respond. It's...

    Discovery ignored again. Now what?

    I never saw her at the mediation. I gave her mail to the mediator who took it to her. She opened her mail as they were talking and then for whatever reason she showed the mediator the statement that was in the envelope. There is around $3,000 in that new account. Not a lot of money, but what...

    Discovery ignored again. Now what?

    Today was mediation. Before mediation her lawyer gave us a few of the documents we had requested. We got 3 of 5 W-2's, 2 of 5 investment and retirement account statements, but no bank statements or paystubs. She also has not answered almost all of the interrogatories. Mediation began with me...

    Discovery ignored again. Now what?

    An update on the case. I asked my attorney what we can do to try to get the documents that she refuses to turn over. My attorney answered that we may not need to get the documents because he expects the judge to default her out at the next hearing, which is on April 25. Of course, now that I'm...
