How do I get him out of the house?

Q: My husband has been living at a casino 3 hours away in "comped" hotel rooms for 5 out of 7 days a week for the past 3 years. He has never contributed to our household. He has gambled with money from a premarital accident settlement. However, we live in an apartment and i don't have the means to move. My name is on the lease. My mother pays the rent and helps me with my bills because I'm a nursing student. I have such anxiety when he does come home that I can't sleep. What can I do? How would I serve him if he's mostly living in a casino??

Can I file parental kidnapping?

Q: I have a court order for my daughter to be with me every other week for a whole week , it's been almost 2 weeks and the child's mother refuses to drop my child off or answer any text or calls . This isn't the 1st time she's ran off with my child what can I do ?

Would I have to pay his father child support because I make more money? How much would a divorce cost (there are no assets)?

Q: I live in NY. I left my husband 11 years ago but never filed for divorce because of the cost. I also took our son with me, who is now 14. I have dragged my feet long enough and I want to file for divorce and just be free of him. I work two jobs and make more money than him. He only spends about one weekend day a week with our son and it's not consistently every week. Would I still be entitled to the full 17% of his gross pay for child support and would a judge award anything for the 11 years that he hasn't given us anything? Thank you.

I'm 18 years old and my mom is trying to kick me out. Can I put her on child support if she does kick me out?

Q: I'm 18 and my mom wants to kick me out. She says I should be helping for the rent when my mom makes enough to knock out the rent in one weeks pay. She spends all her money on outside food, shopping and to my younger siblings (17 y.o brother and 11 y.o sister) I don't make enough money to give the amount of money she wants for the rent. She doesn't buy me absolutely anything, I've been working since I was 14 because I realized if I depended on her to buy me new shoes or clothes I'll be walking around barefooted. She's been saying she wanted to kick me out since I was 17. I have ran away before because her verbal abuse was too much for me when I was 14 years old. I looked online and it says I can put her on child support till I'm 21, I'm not sure how that works or if I have to be in school or not. I have no where else to go, no family or anything like that.

Where or how can I find a low-cost lawyer to help me with a court date pending June 19th of this month?

Q: The situation is I have a criminal order protection against my sister and she has a family order protection of protection against me. The incident was she become violent and broke my phone. Afterwards she was arrested. Upon that, she has been making false claims and police reports and we are set for court this month. She even went as far as taking me to court upon these false claims. For all the times the police were called, not once was I arrested or charged with anything. The entire problem is while she is violating the order of protection, nothing has been done about it and the cops refuse to do anything. The main issue from all this comes from her refusal to remove her belongings from my room in which she placed a lock on it.

I live in the bronx and am married for 7 years, now i was unfaithful to my wife and got a women pregnant she lives in Yonkers.

Q: She gave birth and i never knew about it, i received a paternity summon for court from her. The papers have the child name and she put my last name on the child without my consent! I dont want that child to have my last name. I will pay the child support but i want no visitation rights nor nothing to do with this child nor her. Is there a form i need to have that last name changed? and also im not sure if she has me in the birth certificate like his father. Also the mother is under public assistance is it true that i have to put the child under my health insurance? if shes under public assistance they automatically get medicaid. I dont know how the courts in Yonkers are nor their rules for all this.

Will a judge order nesting arrangement even in a highly contentious situation where the parents cannot agree on anything?

Q: I am seeking divorce after years of verbal, sexual and financial abuse. Husband wants nesting arrangement and so do kids. This would mean that I have to share residence with my abuser. Kids can see hear and understand the way he treats me and this is not the example of relationship want my kids to be exposed to. Nesting is a great idea if parents can work together but my situation is his way or the highway. Will a judge order nesting anyway because the kids want it that way? They are all teenagers.
