Great Guidance with Goldberg Jones
July 13, 2012, 6:08 am
Colin Amos from the law offices of Goldberg Jones, Divorce for men is back in the studio to take your questions and give you the latest legal lesson to prepare for the summer season.
One of the biggest problems Amos finds with his clients is that even though people know their friends and families do not have an accurate understanding of the law as it pertains to divorce, people often go ahead and take the bad advice of the people around them. He insists that if people call him for a free consultation, he will do nothing less than give callers free legal advice and point them in the right direction.
Another problem Amos frequently encounters is that men and women often think they can use specific examples of inappropriate activity to argue their cases against their spouses in the courtroom. Amos insists that unless the example is an obvious example of spousal abuse or infidelity, the ruling parties do not usually take them into account because it is so difficult to assess wrongdoing.
Amos says it’s also very important for people who may have residencies in multiple states to understand that it does make a difference in which state they choose to file for divorce. Different states have different laws and different interpretations and it’s important for people to understand which states they have jurisdiction in and which ones they do not – especially if the divorce involves a custody battle.
