Yes. Depending in the circumstances, you can mention one year of income, more than one, the average over several years, etc. Mentioning income is important to know how the parties arrived at the figure initially and if the agreement calls for potential modification in the future of alimony (and especially child support that is always modifiable based upon a sign change) those figures will become critical in that analysis.
You really need to consult with an attorney so as to not proceed under any misconceptions about the law on what you can and cannot do. Plus, you are going to want to understand your rights and what you may be entitled to as part of the divorce proceedings. I urge you to at least consult with an attorney and gain this valuable knowledge before you do anything that might be to your detriment, which will be much harder to undue after the fact. You may certainly contact me at my office if you...
I believe you are asking to understand the concept of active vs. passive assets. I agree with the prior answers that you need to sit with an experienced matrimonial law attorney such as myself who can gather more facts and then explain the concepts to you in light of your particular circumstances.
I agree with my all of my colleagues answers. You are at the later stages of your divorce litigation before trial. Once an attorney attends the ESP, they may be "on the hook" so to speak to represent you at trial, if the case does not settle before hand.
I would venture that any attorney who might consider becoming involved in your matter now would want a trial retainer just in case your matter does not settle or the Judge does not allow them out of the case before trial. Plus, you are...
You may ask the court to relocate but your likelihood of success depends on a lot of things that would have to be analyzed including but not limited to, the terms of your divorce agreement, current custody arrangement, reason for move, your future plan to allow the father parenting time, and then we would have to determine which standard of law applies according to the case law. Relocation/removal applications to the court can be complicated, not easy, and costly. The courts take a request...
I agree with all of my colleagues responses. I can only urge you to consult with a knowledgeable attorney ASAP so that you can understand the process and all of your legal options and make sure that you do not miss any important Court deadlines.
I also agree with the responses above. You need to file an application to the court to get an order of emancipation of the children and, in turn, terminate your child support. You should consult with an attorney because the procedure of motion practice can be confusing and you need to know the law should your ex spouse object to your application.
The simple answer is likely yes but there is much more to discuss such as your husbands earning potential, skill, ability, etc. Also, an analysis would have to be done on what assets or portion of those assets were accumulated before the marriage (if any) and the determination whether there was any commingling of per marital assets or income. You do need to speak with an experienced family law attorney, such as myself, to explain this in greater detail based upon the facts of your case.
I am not able to really answer your question without further information. There may be things you can do to help manage these payments or ask the Court for some form of relief but whether you will be successful in those arguments depends. Again, I am not able to assess that just based on this dialogue. You should consult with an attorney to get better informed of all of your options. Feel free to contact my office if you are interested. 201-880-9770. Thank you!
