    Of utmost importance is that you keep in mind that, in Connecticut, the Court has the discretion and power to award to either party all or part of the estate of the other. Whether or not they have lived together, they chose to be married. Based on the debt that the wife put on her home, the court would likely consider this part of the "contribution of the wife" in the acquisition, preservation or appreciation of the assets. The "hard work on the home" is usually considered a valuable...

    If the lawyer acted against your best interst, and even acted to benefit his/herself (versus your best interest as the client) you may have an ethical issue as it relates to the lawyer's conduct. Further, the lawyer should give you documentation related to ANYTHING he/she did on your behalf. As for the bank, if they acted improperly, keep going up the chain manager to district manager, etc.

    I'm not so sure that it's against the law to force you into court without a lawyer. Think about it this way: it makes sense to use a lawyer (this is a person who knows the ins-and-outs of court, the legal system, etc. If your wife is using one, I would assume she is using (joint) marital funds. If that's the case, why should the judge allow her to have access to funds that you do not have? That is not proper. If the two of you are in a 50/50 (marital) partnership, you should go forward on a...

  4. Can I bring her character fitness to family court?

    Given how the "best interest of the child" is the hallmark principle of the Court, issues relating to her character may have some relevance in your case. Do you have pictures? Do you have documents and/or specific dates and incidents to present to the Court? Her cheating may not relate to her fitness as a mother, but if she is out galavanting around town when your child is supposed to be home sleeping...that is a different story!

    Anbody can get a divorce if the want to. In most states, a divorce is either contested or uncontested. If you challenge the action, you'll lose because nobody should be forced to be married to somebody who they do not want to be married to. As far as your baby, you have every right to be involved as a custodial parent. Husband and wife may end, but the roles of mom and dad are (usually) forever.

    It does not take six weeks to get an opposing party served. Your lawyer should go to Canton (your court will likely be the Norfolk County Probate and Family Court) and file the Complaint and wait (it may take an hour or so) for the Summons. Whoever is hired to serve the Complaint should get it done the same day...Along with the Complaint, a Motion for Temporary Orders ought to be filed/served and ask that your Husband be ordered to leave. A Judge may find it hard to rule on a Motion to Vacate,...

  7. In the separation agreement does waiving past and present alimony, also stop future alimony once the child support ends?

    Since you specifically waived past and present, your lawyer should argue that you purposely left future alimony open. Additionally, when child support ends "economic dependency" will become an issue....something that you should be able to document. Finally, if the agreement did not survive (and merged), you may be able to go get some alimony now. Good luck.

    I'm sorry you are going through what appears to be a tough situation. First things first: child support and custody-visitation matters need to be separated in your mind. We can't "buy" our time with children, as the hallmark principle is what is in "the best interest" of the children. As to the relationship between you and the guardians, as difficult as this must be, we have to think about what is in the "best interest" of your daughter. I can't fathom a 12 year-old girl having to share a...

    Most attorneys will provide an initial consulation without charge. More important, if you have any tangible proof about the hidden monies, it'll help you (and your attorney). Modifications are normally obtained when there is a change of circumstances; moreover, you are entitled to a modification on child support every three years! Good luck.

    The action for which you are speaking must have been a Complaint for Modification. Along with that Complaint was probably a "motion" for which there is a specific day and time to appear before the Judge. Call my office and I will walk you through the steps, and if we can help you further, we can take it from there. (781) 461-9800.
