    A civil divorce and a Catholic Church annulment are two separate matters. The annulment has no bearing on and cannot be used to overturn the civil divorce decree. Good luck to you. Henry Gornbein

    Hi, A court speaks through its written orders and judgments. If the $10,000 is in writing you can take him back to court and enforce it. If there is no written order or judgment then you have a serious problem. You should order a transcript from the hearing ordering the $10,000 and make sure that it is reduced to a court order or judgment. Talk to an attorney for more advice and information. Good luck to you. Henry Gornbein

    Hi, All divorces are public record. Go to the court where he filed and check to see the status of any possible divorce involving your husband and yourself. If he never went to court then most likely the divorce was dismissed because it was not properly processed. You should have been served and notified. If you have any other questions check with an attorney. Good luck to you. Henry Gornbein

    Hi, In most cases retirement plans are divided as of the date that the divorce is settled or finalized subject to gains or losses from that date to the actual date of division which can sometimes take several months depending upon the plan and how fast the QDROS are completed and filed. Good luck to you. Henry Gornbein

    I would be careful. That is a marital asset to the extent that it was acquired during your marriage. During a divorce that could be challenged and considered subject to division even if you tried to put it into your children's names.

    You can apply for a divorce here in Michigan as long as you meet the residency requirements. To file for a divorce you must be a resident of the county where you intend to file for at least 10 days and the State of Michigan for at least 180 days. If you meet those requirements then you can file for a divorce. Good luck to you.

    Hi, You are entitled to your file. It is actually yours. The attorney's notes are considered work product and unless the attorney gives them to you they are the attorney's and not yours. You are entitled to the documents that are received as part of discovery. I would urge you to retain another attorney if the case is still pending. Good luck to you. Henry Gornbein
