Personal Protection Orders during Divorce

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Personal Protection Orders during Divorce

A personal protection order (PPO) is an order issued by the court. In situations where there is a domestic relationship, it can protect you from harassment, assault, beating, molesting, wounding, or stalking by another person. It provides police to prevent a crime before it happens, by preventing the other person from purchasing a firearm or interfering with your daily activities. The order can also prohibit him/her from entering your premises and removing minor children unless the removal is part of a court parenting time order.

In this episode of “Ask Henry“, with attorney Henry Gornbein, we take a closer look at Personal protection orders from all sides.  Whether you are the one seeking the order or are on the receiving end, we cover all sides in this program.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on “What can we Expect from the Legal System During Divorce?

In this episode of “Ask Henry,” with attorney Henry Gornbein, our question is, “What can we reasonably expect from the legal system, including Attorneys, Judges, Friend of the Court, and Mediators?”

Henry walks us through the steps of determining what you should expect from your attorney and what you should be looking for when selecting one. The conversation then shifts to reasonable expectations for the judge overseeing your case.  Judges are all different and rule as such.  Another part of the family law system is the Friend of The Court, and Henry helps us understand the system.

Finally, we take a look at what you can expect from a family law mediator.  The court process during divorce can be daunting, so the more you know early on, the better the possible outcome.

Holiday Visitation Rights & Questions about Annulment

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Holiday Visitation Rights & Questions about Annulment

In  this Episode of “Ask Henry” with Attorney, Henry Gornbein, Henry answers questions related to holiday visitation rights with your children and discusses what annulments are and how they work.

The Holidays can be an especially difficult time when you are divorcing, especially the first year. Henry discusses options of sharing time with your children.  It’s always best if you can come up with a shared holiday plan with your ex because if you can’t, the judge will be forced to do so.  If you can’t come to an amicable agreement, Henry offers advice on how to approach your attorney as a means of bargaining for fair rights for equal parenting time.  Divorce Source Radio would advise you consider the best interest of your children first.

The second question deals with annulments.  What are they? Is there a difference between a legal annulment and a religious annulment?  Does an annulment free you of paying spousal support and how easy is it to get one?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on To Move or Not to Move – That is the Question

In this episode of “Ask Henry,” attorney Henry Gornbein, answers the questions:  Should I Move Out of our House or sSay? and When is The Right Time to Introduce a New Flame to Your Children.

It used to be that keeping a marital home was the best thing to do for the sake of your children and finances, and this property was routinely a bargaining tool when dividing assets.  Today, with the downfall of the economy, many homeowners are “underwater,” meaning the owners owe more than the house is worth.  Henry helps us make sense of when staying is the proper thing to do, and when it’s best to cut our losses and move on.

The second part of this program is dedicated to when to tell your children that you have a new love interest.  This decision is sometime rushed and not in the best interest of the children.  This is a subject that should be handled with care, and Henry provides his advice on what he feels is in the best interest of the entire family.
