    You probably can get away with not filing the statement of net worth. The best way to be sure is to go down to the supreme court in your county and get the uncontested forms and ask the clerk if under your circumstances you need to file it.

    She is entitled to half of his benefit if it is larger than hers. However, if she is disabled she may get something additional. She should check with a social security attorney or social security direct.

    I suggest that you retain an attorney to help with the paperwork. If you retain the attorney before your wife gets here, it is possible to have all the forms completed in advance and all she would have to do is sign the appropriate forms and then have it all submitted to the court. You can accomplish your part in short order, how long it will take the court to sign the final judgment is another story. Usually it takes at least a couple of months.

    You do not need her signature, what you need is to serve her with a summons. If you know where she lives that is sufficient to get her served. If you don't know where she lives or works, you would have to do a due diligence search and then make a motion to the court for alternate service. You should speak to an attorney and retain one to help you as this is a very technical process.

    You should file for child support immediately if not sooner. Child support is retroactive to the date your petition is filed. Each day that goes by you loose child support. You should also ask that the child support be paid through support collection so that they will keep track of what is and isn't paidl I hope you found this answer helpful and if so, please let me know by clicking the "Mark as Helpful" button at the bottom of this answer.

    At age 16 the courts will follow what you want to do in regard to custody unless it is dangerous. At 15 the courts will give a lot of weight to what you want. What you need is to have your father file a petition for custody based upon your wishes. In addition, if you were to move in with your dad the only thing your mom could do is go to court to get you back which will also get the matter in front of a judge.

    Unfortunately, the comment "due by 8/18" only means that the papers had to be submitted by that date. Once the full packet of divorce papers are actually submitted it can take a couple of moths for them to be reviewed to see that they are in proper order and all required forms are there. There is nothing that can be done about the delay. I hope you found this answer helpful and if so, please let me know by clicking the "Mark as Helpful" button at the bottom of this answer.

    You can have the process server wait for her either early in the morning or at night for her to come home or leave. You can try to have her served at work or you can get an affidavit that your process server has attempted service several time and what happened and ask for service to be allowed by other means such as deliver to another person or nail and mail.

    No matter what your husband has to be served with at least the summons. If he defaults by not appearing, you can submit the necessary papers to the court for the divorce (he does not have to sign anything). See a divorce attorney to help you with the process.

    Child support is retroactive to the first day of request filed in the court. In regard to money taken from joint checking a lot would depend on what the money was used for or if it was just put in a separate account. Discovery goes back 5 years before the filing of the action and continues to the time of trial.
