Divorce: What does a “Petition Status for Attorney” involve?

Question by gpurv: Divorce: What does a “Petition Status for Attorney” involve?
My daughter was asked to immediately put $ 2,500 in her lawyer’s trust so they could respond to a request from the opposing council.

Since we didn’t immediately have the $ 2,500, we had to ask the lawyer’s office to remove themselves from the case (temporally). So, they were taken off the court record.

Now opposing council has a court date set for “Petition Status for Attorney”.


1. Can my daughter go to the ‘petition’ court date, without a lawyer, and explain to the judge that she will be reinstating her lawyer prior to the divorce case?

2. Should we pay the lawyer “now”, prior to this petition court date? (we don’t want to do this because opposing council will continue to artificially run up our bill until we’re totally broke and can’t pay for the actual divorce trial)

I should add, this divorce has been going on for 19 months and so far her lawyer has been paid and spent $ 23,000. For the actual trial, he wants another $ 10,000

She’s a school teacher.

Facing a Divorce, What should I do ?

by Ed Yourdon

Question by John Doe: Facing a Divorce, What should I do ?
I met my wife in Feb. 2006, She had just relocated to Tennessee after Hurricane Katrina. Our relationship was pretty good for about 6-8 months, Shortly after we moved in together things started to head south. She would get mad for little things and has always been physically abusive. We ended up getting married Aug. 2007 and our relationship was steady, not great but not horrible.

I don’t believe she ever ‘got’ the idea of marriage and how it’s supposed to be, She’s 31 and I’m 27 currently and she’s already been married and divorced once before. She likes to claim that I’m ‘controlling’ because when she walks out the door to go somewhere I ask “where are you going and when do you plan on being home”, She decided to out with her single friends to a night club one night which I was cool with but when I asked her when she’d be home she thought she was being controlled and stayed out until 4am, didn’t call, I didn’t know where she was or what she was doing.

There’s been constant fighting for atleast two years, I’ve only ever smacked her once which I’m not proud of but I was constantly bloody, bruised, or hurting after she would go on one of her tirades.. There have been plenty of times where she’d tell me to leave and I’d go (no short trip as we were living in Louisiana and I was having to go to Tennessee.) One time while in Tennessee we agreed to makeup and that she would come home.. After she got back I found nude photos that she was sending other guys on her cell phone dated the day after we made up. A month later after a fight I found out she had went and stayed with the same guy the photos were sent to in a hotel..

We moved on from that, then both lost our jobs and have to stay in a homeless shelter for months..

We still constantly fight, There has been no love made for atleast 5 months and even then I’d say I could count the times this year on one hand. We don’t talk to one another, When she doesn’t want to talk she gets mad and screams, She’s always huffing and puffing around the house, She recently as of a week ago punched me in the face and gave me a bloody lip (she claims was an accident.) I really don’t think I can handle this relationship anymore. I’ve tried to do everything I could for her, bought her 3 cars, provided everything she and her son needed. I’ve known them for 5 years now and in that time his real dad has called twice and sent him a set of clothes once. I’ve done everything I could and nothing is good enough. I love her son and it’ll break my heart to walk away from him too but life’s too short to be miserable, I contacted a divorce lawyer but I don’t know if I can go through with it. I do love her but It’s just not a good relationship. I will give her credit, She has always worked and provided money to the family until the economy got bad but then so did I..

We’ve tried counseling but it hasn’t worked. The counselor will tell us something and it’ll work for 2-3 days and then go back to the same thing..

What should I do ?

Answer by a chick
She was abusive to you before you even got married; why on earth did you tie the knot? At any rate, she’s not going to get better.

Pregnant by someone else, TN divorce and or paternity laws?

Question by firechick1721: Pregnant by someone else, TN divorce and or paternity laws?
I have been with my boyfriend for almost a year. He has been separated (not legally) from his wife for over a year. He talked to a lawyer about divorce, lawyer said that they needed to file bankruptcy first. He barely makes enough money to pay rent. Today we found out that his “wife” was pregnant, of course it is not his (besides him not being with her, he is fixed– i figure someone will make that comment) i have been looking online, but could not find specifics, only hearsay. What we want to know is: Can you get a divorce in Tennessee while pregnant? Will his name have to go on the birth certificate? Will they make him pay child supoort? Will they make him pay for the paternity test? Any and all info and links you can give would be greatly appreciated!!

Best answer:

Answer by Artemis Gwen
Yes. Of course you can get a divorce while the wife is pregnant. And he better RUN his behind to the courthouse and file the paperwork. Waiting to declare bankruptcy is stupid. He needs to get the marriage dissolved before the baby his born.

Generally, when a child is born to a woman who is married the husband is presumed to be the father. And yes, that can include a child support obligation.

Your boyfriend needs to go speak with a family law attorney in your state and find out what he is looking at and what he needs to do.
