- Q. Submitted my Petition in errors, and certified order to the Supreme Court. How long after for transcripts and briefs?
- A: Rules vary for criminal and civil appeals and there are further differences within civil appeals based on the type of case and the type of order you are appealing from. But the general rule is that the record must be completed within six months of the date of the order appealed. And the brief in chief is due within 60 days of the filing of the Notice of Completion of Record. Missing deadlines can cause your case to be dismissed so reach out to an appellate attorney to see if any special rules apply to your case.
- Q. What is the proper procedure for changing my last name to something different after divorce?
- A: The law allows you to go back to any former name when the divorce is granted. So if you have a previous married name, you can return to that name. If you have no former name other than your maiden name, you can still change your name to anything by filing a name change case. Basically, you say under oath that you aren’t changing your name for an illegal or fraudulent purpose and you publish notice of the name change in the newspaper. You can find a name change form with instructions here: https://oklaw.org/resource/adult-name-change-forms.
- Q. On the divorce decree it states my ex can claim our daughter until no longer eligible. (Very loose language) however,
- A: It really depends on the wording of your decree. The IRS has its own rules about which parent can claim the children on their taxes and they often don't care what a decree says. However, and this is very important, a divorce decree is an enforceable court order and disobeying it can put you in contempt of court. That can mean monetary sanctions and, in some cases, jail time. The best thing you can do is talk to an attorney in your area and at least get some advice on what to do. They may be able to help you modify the decree, so you can claim your daughter in the future. But get a licensed attorney to review the language and advise you before you do anything else.
