The judge granted me 100% of the contents of the home in my divorce decree two years ago. Now, my ex is saying I was not able to take the appliances. He knows they were a gift from my Grandmother. He filed a police report. The ex told me he didn't...
It will depend on how the judge rules. Appliances are "fixtures" and usually stay with the house, when sold. For foreclosure, you can take them. If he doesn't want them, why is he complaining to Judge? If they were a gift to you, they are non-marital property. Read your judgment. It probably assigns to you all of your non-marital property -- which means you get to keep your 20-year-old appliances. The link, below, will help.See question
I had original child visitation/custody/support orders in CA. After moving to IL with my child I filed a petition to enroll foreign judgement, which gave IL authority to enforce CA's orders. IL has gone beyond just enforcement and also entered new...
One state cannot vacate the orders of another, but State A can find the orders of State B illegitimate and just ignore them. That's not going to happen in your case, however. Under the UCCJEA, when you enrolled your case in IL, you jumped in with both feet and you closed the door on California. If the child is in Illinois and CA did not retain exclusive continuing jurisdiction, then the IL court is the ONLY court left to you.

I am going through the divorce process, a contested one. Main issue is child custody. The only financial dispute is my 401k fund, he wants 50% of it and I know by law he can get it. Can I take a loan from my 401k, I have no money left to pay for d...
When you say you know he can get half half of our 401(k), you're off the mark. You CAN take a loan against the account, and it will have to be addressed later on. If you have no money left for debts and expenses, why are you not going after your soon-to-be-former husband for help with the bills? You should direct these questions to your lawyer. If you don't have a lawyer, you need one.
As for the custody issue, the law is changing 1/1/16 and the changes will apply to your case. You need to talk with your lawyer about that, too. It will probably deflate a lot of the conflict in your case. THe links below, will help.See question
After final order of divorce on Sep 1st. Due to MSA my ex should pay child support 40% of childcare, 50% of extracurricular monthly. Also he should pay a part of equity for our marital house (he lives in). He got a loan for that, so he has money. ...
This sounds like a clear-cut case of contempt. He'll almost certainly have to reimburse our attorney's fees and bankruptcy won't save him. Call a lawyer familiar with support enforcement actions. The links, below, will help.See question
Since the entry of the new child support order, my ex-husband has failed to pay on time and full. I filed a "Rule to Show Cause" regarding non-payment of support and was ordered a judgment of $8K. In addition, the ex-husband has failed to appear t...
Divorce occurred in the State of Illinois in the early 70's Last payment made in mid 80's Payments were made in the form of a money order directly to the plaintiff. The file has been inactive for years. The attempt to file motion is to harass ...
It depends. There is no statuse of limitations, today. It used to be 20 years. That changed in, I think, 1997. You probably can collect the unpaid support plus interest. You need to call a lawyer with the dates and the lawyer would have to pull all the docs.
It sounds to me, however, that you have a good case if you can substantiate your demands for payment. The great lapse in pressing your claim, however, may open a defense for the other side. You really need to forget about online help and pick up the phone to talk with a lawyer so you can go through details.See question
he has a bad drug record and does not pay child support and I don't want my son around him
If there is no court order, you may do what you want. As to the "unsafe" situation, it doesn't sound unsafe to me. You allege:
1) he has a bad drug record. What is a drug record? At any rate, it sounds like it's history. You don't say he has a drug problem or is a current addict. You say he has a drug "record." What's the problem?
2) he doesn't pay child support. How does that make visits "unsafe?"
3) You don't want your (you say "my" son around him. He is the father. This is the one man out of all of them that you chose to be the father of your son. You son has a right to get to know the man you chose. What would be unsafe about that?See question
Since then she has removed him from her home, hired a lawyer who says his hands are tied. How can she get her babies back home with her
Tell her to work with her lawyer. She needs an attorney and he is the one with the greatest familiarity with her case.

You flat out DO NOT QUALIFY for an annulment. The window is 90 days and you've waited too long. Your only option is a divorce. As for worrying about her "image," she should have thought about that before she married. The links, below, will help. You should work with an attorney. It won't cost too much and it will smooth a lot of bumps.See question
