    Go online to the MA court site and fill out a motion for Attorney fees along with a short form finanical affidavit. Mail a copy to your husband and the court, bring a copy with you. If you can't afford a lawyer, then perhaps your husband can. It's important to file the divorce so temporary orders go into effect before he sells off more assets.

    This is a unilateral mistake on a contract which will be difficult for him to enforce in court. However, he will likely present the email quote as evidence of the additional 750. charge. The critical question here is whether or not you received this corrected email quote and bill before or during the services were rendered. He may be entitled to collect any unjust enrichment you gained from his mistake. It would help if you were to get a written estimate for the same job by another...

    Hello, Assuming there is no separation agreement that addresses the issue, then no you do not have to add her to your health insurance. However, If you do end up filing for divorce there will likelybe a provision in the divorce agreement allowing your ex-spouse to be added to your insurance at her expense.

    DUI - You need to wait a minimum of 5 years after disposition for any misdemeanor conviction such as your DUI before you can seal your record. Dismissal of Rape charges - You may file a petition to seal which includes a motion form and affidavit. You will likely be given a hearing under M.G.L.c.276. 100C. A hearing may be called, if so be prepared to argue that sealing your record will cause substantial justice to be served and that you would be harmed if the record is not sealed. (ie....

    If you acquired your home prior to marriage, your likely going to be able to keep it in the divorce. By the way, he cannot stop a divorce process once you file for it. As far as the other deeds go, he cannot remove you from those deeds without your approval. The property's are now marital assets and will need to be divided equitably in probate court. I have experience dealing with marital property divisions. Feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance. Good Luck.

    It depends on how the debt is written by the SBA. If it is in his name only then it is his credit that as risk if not paid back. In terms of your divorce, the court will look at the debt as joint marital debt and assign it accordingly, likely 50-50. This means he could use this "marital debt" as a way of negotiating better terms on other marital assets. For example, he could agree to take on 100% of this business debt in return for additional assets acquired during the marriage. I have...

    Your not the target of the investigation so I would ask for the warrant affidavit to asertain what probable cause they had to search your apartment to gather evidence on the alleged perpetrator. Your boyfriend may be able to have any evidence obtained suppressed later on in court and the charges dismissed.
