What waiting periods are associated with a divorce action?
The law requires 30 days pass after filing before the finalization of the divorce can be entered.
Is the husband always required to pay alimony in a divorce?
Spousal support is only paid when requested by a party, and a judge must determine the payment is warranted. The decision is made based on factors such as the length of the marriage and the financial resources of each party.
What is a will?
A will is a written document that dictates a person’s desires for the division of property and that designates a legal guardian for children.
Why does an estate have to go through probate?
The process is designed to ensure that an estate’s debts and taxes are paid and that the property and assets of the deceased person are delegated correctly.
How does a felony differ from a misdemeanor?
The type and length of punishment determines the difference. In a felony, a convict can be imprisoned for many years in a state prison. For a misdemeanor, convictions are carried out in local jails and last no longer than one year.
