    You need to retain a local South Carolina divorce attorney to assist you. One of you will have to move out of the house. Since he is the reason for the breakup of the marriage, the court will likely make him move. You are entitled to half of the marital estate including his pensions earned during the marriage and also to alimony or spousal support. See the link below for an article on the division of marital property in South Carolina.

    I fully agree with the previous answers. Since there is an issue of child custody and division of marital property, you need professional assistance from a Georgia Divorce attorney. However, there is nothing illegal about leaving and taking your child with you. It will be up to the court to decide which party receives custody and/or visitation along with child support. For more information on Georgia child custody see the link below.

    I agree with the above attorneys. A six point ticket is worth the expense to retain an attorney and since you are dealing with the TVB it is unlikely that you will have much success without the assistance of an NY traffic attorney.

    For a New Jersey speeding ticket you do need to retain a local attorney. NJ has the highest insurance rates in the nation and you do need to do everything that you can to keep these tickets off your record.

    For a Florida Speeding Ticket usually your best options are to take the Florida online traffic school or either hire on of the Florida traffic ticket clinics and let them handle it for you. Either way should keep the speeding ticket off your record so that you do not have an insurance increase. For more information see the link below

    For this serious of a New Jersey speeding ticket you need to retain a New Jersey traffic attorney. Since your record is clean, he may be able to save your license or at least mitigate the length of the suspension. In addition to the suspension you have to be concerned about the additional surcharge if you have 6 points assessed and the corresponding huge increase in your auto insurance. The NJ attorney will probably save you more than his fee. See the link below for more New Jersey speeding...

    A South Carolina separation requires that you actually live in separate residences. As stated above, you can file for an order of separation and maintenance and the court will decide who resides in the house and custody of the children but one party has to move out before you can file. I suggest a consultation with a South Carolina Divorce attorney.

    It appears the officer has given you a "roadside reduction" from a four point ticket to a two point ticket. Look at the fine amount on the ticket. Normally the fine for a two point ticket is 81.00 and most people pay the ticket rather than hiring an attorney or appearing in court but that is your decision. If you pay the fine prior to the court date listed on the ticket, then you do not need to appear in court. If you do not pay or appear, then it is likely that a warrant will be issued for...

    The answer on the house is a maybe and so is the issue of a common law marriage. My suggestion would be to contact the court that granted the divorce decree and see what the order says about the house. Probably you were supposed to have signed a quit claim deed over to him and he could file to enforce that order. See the link below for more information and case law on common law marriage.

    The previous attorneys are correct. There is a statute that requires someone in possession of a will to file it with the probate court within thirty days of death. However, I have never seen this actually enforced. Your brother needs to retain an attorney to assist him with the probate process and to demand the return of anything that has been taken from the property. He can also issue No Trespass notices to them to keep them off the property.
