Legal Answers
Q. can my son grandmother get any rights to my son. I already have joint legal custody that I share with my son mother .
A: Interesting question. The question is what role does the grandmother play in the child's day to day life and why? If the answer simply is that your ex lives in the same house with her mother, presume that it is not sufficient but if the grandmother is primarily responsible for the child's care, that could change things and give her a basis for the court to reexamine her role in the child's life, especially if there is concern over your ex's handling of the child's care.
Q. My Mom passed away and my sister is an executor. I'm a beneficiary. my sister asked me to meet with her & realtor.?
A: My guess is that your sister is planning to list and sell your mother's home as part of her handling of the estate, or she wants to discuss with you the value of the home for her / you to keep as part of the division of assets of the estate. My suggestion is that you can meet with her and her realtor at the house and listen to what they have to say but if they want you to sign papers, you can tell them that you want to read them over and want time to think about what they are suggesting. And, then you can decide whether you need to meet with an estate lawyer to ensure that your interests are being protected properly in the division of the estate.
Q. Ex husband moved to Phillipines to avoid paying alimony
A: I presume that your former spouse's employment was / is in New Jersey and that your former husband still works for the company remotely. Presuming I am correct, then an order served upon the employer in New Jersey for garnishment is valid and must be honored. If the employer refuses to honor it, then you need to hire a lawyer and take legal action against the employer. This is not the type of application I would recommend be handled by you with a general practitioner or on your own. If you schedule a consultation with a family law specialist, make sure you bring with you specific proof that your ex still works for the company and that he is working remotely (and that the company has a NJ office location).
