- How can I get child support cases that are against me closed in Baltimore City?
I suggest you speak to an attorney who can review the cases against you. I would need additional information. Are the cases related to a paternity test? If so, the court would have to decide how to proceed.
If the cases are open but dormant, the court might be able to close the cases as a procedural matter. If the court scheduled upcoming court dates in the cases, you could resolve these issues at the court date. Or you could file an answer or opposition to any motion that is pending if there is a pending motion.
- Should I consider a visitation modification in the near future?
The easiest way to accomplish your goal of spending summers or more time with your son after he enters school, is to reach an agreement with his mother. She might agree that his schedule will change when he enters school. As for launching a modification case, the previous responder is correct about how tricky it can be to establish a change in circumstances. It is important that you have successfully co-parented with your ex-wife. I think after your son enters school and you have evidence that the schedule is not working for him, then you should consider filing a modification. It would be difficult to file without such evidence.
- Can I change my last name during my separation?
I agree with the previous answer. I will add that you can petition the court to change your last name in a separate action. You would have to file a petition to change the name and then wait for the court to issue you a notice of the change. Then you would have to publish the notice once in a newspaper of general circulation. Then you would have to file a certificate of publication and wait for a court decision.
A 12-month separation is not the only ground to use for attaining a divorce. An attorney could go over with you any other options you might have.
- How likely is it that he gets full or more that 50% custody.
In the event that he gets 50 percent or more custody, the arrangement would depend on several factors, such as how far you plan to move. The Court would tailor the custody order To your circumstances.
- I want to make a new show (on You tube) a web show if you will. Do I have to pay to trademark the name or is this not required?
Trademarks are not required at the national or international level. A trademark can help distinguish your product name from other names. If you filed for a trademark application you would probably have to pay filing fees.
