    It is not illegal. If you have not filed for divorce the court has no jurisdiction over you and cannot tell you or your wife what to do. How a couple manages their financial affairs is that couples business unless and untl the court obtains jurisdiction over them.

    Your divorce is still valid. If you want to have your decree amended you can have the court make the correction. Try calling the clerk and letting him or her know. Perhaps they can facilitate getting the typo corrected more readily. Best April Jones Www. AprilJonesLaw.com

    With respect to getting "in trouble", in order for you to be found in contempt you have to specifically violate the pertinent order. In this case, read the exact wording of the court order... Do the court orders require you to provide all of the transportation, I assume not. Is he supposed to pick the child up from school or daycare or your home for example, if so he is not going to be able to comply with a condition of his parenting time. If he incarcerated and this was not anticipated at...

    Maybe she needs a new attorney. Sometimes a new perspective on and old problem case can help. She should seek attorneys fees in her responsive motions if the incomes disparity is as great as you have stated. Visit my website at www.apriljoneslaw.com for more information.

    In Colorado, assets and debts acquired during marriage are marital and are considered joint by the divorce court. However, Colorado is an equity state not a community property state which means the Colorado court divides debts in the manner it finds to be "fair" given the totality of your circumstances.

  10. My ex-husband refuses to pay maintenance and child support through child registry and contests the mediation financial terms

    I can't tell from your question whether or not you both signed the wriiten agreement reached in mediation. If you did sign a memorandum of understanding (an MOU) you can seek to have the court make the MOU an order. If you did not both sign the mediated agreement, it is not enforceable in court. He must be court ordered to pay through the registry and if he faills to comply with the order, you can file contempt against him.
