    An inheritance would not be community property, if it is kept separate. If the money was co-mingled with community funds, or the house purchased was titled in both spouses' names, then the money or home would become community property, subject to division. Good luck!

    As long as the three siblings do not place their spouses names on the deed or invest community funds into the property, it remains separate.

    You are right, she can request a modification of the spousal maintenance, however, she could do that at any point, regardless of rather or not you file a Petition for Dissolution. Normally, filing such a Petition does not trigger an attempt to modify the terms of the Decree of Legal Separation. Good luck!

    One of the required documents in all divoerce cases is a "NOTICE REGARDING CREDITORS." One of the purposes of this document is to make you each aware that the Court can Order that each of you pay certain debts, but the court does NOT have jurisdiction over your creditors as they are not parties to the divorce action. The Notice reads, in part: "YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COMMUNITY DEBTS. The court usually requires/orders one spouse or the other to pay certain community debts in,...

    Based on the information provided, I am not sure why Mom has any unsupervised access to the child at all at this point. If you have a family attorney, I would suggest that you discuss Temporary or other Orders to curtail her access. And again, based on the limited information provided, yes, there is a good possibility that the court could award father sole legal decision making (custody) and possibly even restrict mom’s access to the child. Good luck! Patrick Sampair The Sampair...

    It sounds like there is a clear Court Order in place and that your ex is disobeying it. The path of least resistance would be to offer to let him come to your house and see that there is nothing there belonging to your now ex boyfriend, however, it seems that he is making excuses not to let you see your child. You might ask him what "proof" he seeks, even though there is none required by the Order, or You could file a motion for a Status Conference with the Judge, stating that the...

    While you are not court ordered to pay child support, you do have an obligation to support your child, as does the other parent. You will not likely be punished for not giving him money, especially under these circumstances. If you are willing to pay her daycare in the interim, this will probably be sufficient until you get in front of the judge. More concerning is your husband’s manipulative attitude that you can not “afford” your child or his unwillingness to allow you equal time. He...

    If you are divorced by 12/31, you will file separate tax returns. HOWEVER, while it is possible that you could be divorced by the end of the year, it is very doubtful that this will happen. Even if you filed today, the other party accepted service of the documents today and the two of you filed a Consent Decree 61 days from today, it would still likely be early next year before the judge signs your Decree.

    The court cost to file a new divorce is $338.00. If there are children involved there will be a required Parent Education Class that normally has a $50 fee. If the case is contested, there may be additional fees. There are many websites online that claim they will prepare the documents for your divorce, but every state and many counties within each state have different rules, costs and requirements. For lack of a better word, many of these sites are worthless. I suggest that you...
