    Illinois has not enforced Breach of Promise for many years. You knew he was married when you began the relationship. Don't talk to him until he can show you a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage is filed. Don't be attentive to him until he can show you a Judgment of Dissoltion of Marriage.

    If he is being awarded the property in the out of court settlement. A quit claim deed is part of the process where he is made the sole owner. I am not sure what you mean by a grantor/grantee agreement. The "contract" leading to the quit claim deed is usually the Marital Settlement Agreement. Are you being asked to sign an additional contract which is not being presented to the Court? These details should not be broadcast over the Internet.

    What does one lady have to do with the other. Is there a problem with your fiancee's immigration status? How long were you and your Russian wife marrried? If it was a very short marriage, the INS could get suspicious. The only question becomes whether INS will think your providing a service by marrying her rather than it being a real relationship. A quick call to an immigration attorney to discuss the Immigration Code and what precedents (prior decisions) might apply.

    How are these documents "too old"? The Court's Orders are current until they are modified after a petition. If you think circumstances have changed and the Order should be modified; file your pleading. Have you approached your ex-husband about mediating your parenting time issues? These details should not be broadcast over the Internet.

    If you thought it was difficult at trial to go pro se; it is just that much tougher at the appellate level. If the record is as you suggest, you need to at least make one post trial motion to preserve your objections for appeal. Then the appeal can take place. At our offices we have Andrey Filipowicz, a top appellate lawyer. These details should not be broadcast over the Internet.

    There are a lot of factors not covered in the question as you posted it. There needs to be information on who earns what and what other assets there are? It can be possible, but if you earn more and have another house maybe not. These details should not be broadcast over the Internet.

    A guilty plea may have liability consequences. You may be up against the person trying to merge into your lane having seen the emergency vehicle and was just trying to pull over as is required. There seems to be enough room to contest the ticket though. These details should not be broadcast over the Internet.

    The retirement plan has similar contract terms to a life insurance policy. They often have provisions for payment of benefits to surviors.
