Legal view: File a complaint if ex-wife breaches divorce agreement terms – News

Question: I got married in 2014 in India and got divorced in October 2018 as per a mutual agreement. I agreed to pay Dh3,000 per month to my now three-year-old son. According to the terms we signed, I could visit my son once a week for an hour. My ex-wife and son went to India in August, but she came back to the UAE without him. Please advise how I can bring my son back to Dubai so I can at least visit him once a week.

Answer: Pursuant to your queries, we assume that you had obtained a mutual divorce from your ex-wife from the Personal Status Court of Dubai and the mutual agreement is duly attested by the court. We further assume that the said mutual agreement is an integral part of the mutual divorce judgement. Therefore, the provisions of Federal Law No. (28) of 2005 on Personal

Juvenile justice reform’s legal challenge impacts Santa Cruz child murder case

SANTA CRUZ — Adrian “A.J.” Gonzalez, now 21, was arrested and charged with murder as a 15 year old. The California Supreme Court will soon weigh a case with implications for whether Gonzalez and others like him should face the adult or juvenile justice system.

Oral arguments begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday in San Francisco in the “O.G. vs The Superior Court of Ventura County” case, challenging the constitutionality of 2018’s Senate Bill 1391.

Gonzalez’s case has lingered in legal limbo for years due to several legal reforms passed subsequent to the 2015 killing of Madyson Middleton. Known to family as “Maddy,” the 8-year-old girl was found strangled beneath piled cardboard in a recycling container at the Tannery Arts Center Lofts, where she lived with her mother.

Pictures of the slain 8-year-old Madyson Middleton were staked on the lawn near the courthouse steps where Adrian Gonzalez appeared in Santa Cruz

Most drive-thru voting locations to close for Election Day in Houston-area county at center of legal drama

Earlier in the day, a federal judge had rejected a GOP request to invalidate 127,000 ballots cast in drive-thru early voting but said he would have ruled against allowing such voting on Election Day. The judge had dismissed the petition on technical grounds after finding the Republicans did not have a legal basis to bring the challenge.

In announcing the decision to close most of the drive-thru locations, Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins said on Twitter that he “cannot in good faith encourage voters to cast their votes in tents if that puts their votes at risk.” The location that will remain open is the Toyota Center, which has “walls and a roof” and would fit the judge’s description as a building, a county clerk spokesperson told CNN. The judge had ruled that voting needed to take place in a “structure.”

In their appeal, the Republicans dropped their request to … Read More

Family law attorney helps domestic violence victims navigate complex legal landscape

Pro bono work for a lawyer isn’t a California state bar requirement, but one firm has made it part of its mission to encourage its attorneys to take on some domestic violence cases without charge.

Farzad & Ochoa Family Law Attorneys, a firm with Santa Ana and Mission Viejo locations, began practicing family law exclusively about a decade ago. Most of its clients seek out the firm for complex divorces and custody work. But like local domestic violence resource centers, the firm has experienced an uptick in calls from victims of domestic violence — one to two calls per week has risen to about four to six — during the coronavirus pandemic.

Robert Farzad, the firm’s managing partner, said there are three common cases: ongoing victims whose abusers have escalated violence, victims with no history of domestic violence experiencing it for the first time during the pandemic, and

Trump campaign pushes forward in legal challenge of Pa. certification, looks to revive poll watcher claims

The Trump campaign is intent on pushing forward with its challenge of the Pennsylvania election results, claiming that it can still do so despite counties already certifying their results.

In a letter filed with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, Trump campaign attorney Marc Scaringi called for oral arguments as the campaign fights against a lower court’s dismissal of their case, and explained their current approach.

TRUMP CANCELS TRIP TO PENNSYLVANIA GOP MEETING ON ELECTION IRREGULARITIES, SOURCE SAYS

“[F]ederal courts may order the result of the Election decertified, which, as Plaintiffs can explain, would render the Certificate of Ascertainment allegedly issued by Governor Wolf invalid,” Scaringi wrote. “Moreover, the Pennsylvania General Assembly has the power to appoint the Commonwealth’s presidential electors,” he continued, noting that if a federal court determines that Trump received the majority of legally cast votes, it could “have significant impact on the General Assembly.”

Dem Rep Demands Giuliani Lose Law License After Election Legal Battles Hit Dead End

Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) filed complaints in five states on Friday demanding that Rudy Giuliani and 22 other lawyers working with the Trump campaign be disbarred for filing “frivolous” lawsuits and allegedly engaging in “conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation” in their failed attempts to overturn the election results.

Giuliani has happily waged Trump’s election delegitimization war for him, launching unsuccessful legal challenges in several swing states as part of an effort to cast doubt on President-elect Joe Biden’s legitimate victory. Trump’s personal lawyer has held bizarre press conferences where his conspiracy-laden meltdowns have spurred blistering rebukes from federal judges.

Pascrell isn’t taking Giuliani’s flailing attempts at overturning election results lightly.

Pascrell told the Washington Post on Tuesday that his rationale for filing the complaints against Giuliani and other Trump campaign lawyers has much to do with how President Trump “has done great damage to this nation — but

Trump campaign legal team disavows attorney Sidney Powell

The Trump campaign’s legal team is distancing itself from firebrand conservative attorney Sidney Powell after a tumultuous several days in which she made multiple incorrect statements about the voting process, propounded unsupported and complex conspiracy theories and vowed to “blow up” Georgia with a “biblical” court filing.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity,” Rudolph W. Giuliani and another lawyer for Trump, Jenna Ellis, said in a statement Sunday.

The statement came days after Powell and Giuliani appeared in public together to allege, without foundation, widespread fraud in the presidential election. Barely more than a week ago, Trump himself hailed Powell’s role as one of his lawyers, tweeting that she was part of a team of “wonderful lawyers and representatives” led by Giuliani.

There was no

Trump campaign says attorney Sidney Powell is NOT part of legal team

The Trump administration sought to distance itself from attorney Sidney Powell on Thursday, insisting she is ‘not a member’ of their legal team – despite the president tweeting only last week that she was.

In a written statement issued by Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, and his senior campaign adviser, Jenna Ellis, they said: ‘Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own.

‘She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team,’ the message continued. ‘She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.’

The announcement was made a day after a judge dismissed the campaign’s lawsuit seeking to halt President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania, dealing a major blow to Trump’s flailing efforts to overturn his November 3 election loss. 

Just days earlier, Powell had appeared on-stage alongside Giuliani for a bizarre press conference Thursday at the Republican
