If you are using a tax return to calculate the income, use the amount at line 22 on page 1 of form 1040. If you are trying to figure out your income from this year (i.e. 2013), you use your adjusted gross income. Adjusted gross is your gross income discounted by the cost of running your business (i.e. those items and/or expenditures that would be included in your Schedule C)
A lease is a contract. The party to the contract is responsible for carrying out its terms. If he obtained the lease and the obligation to make payments is between him and the leasing company, then that obligation will continue until the end of the lease term. If you two leased the car together, then you are jointly responsible for the obligation to make payments. Since neither of you own the vehicle, I think it would be easiest if you simply gave back the car and ended the lease agreement.
You cannot Will-away parental rights without father's written consent. As far as money and management of daughter's money, I would recommend you draft a trust, make the trust a beneficiary of your estate, make your mom the trustee and draft the trust so that it is clear that the funds that will go into the trust are to be for the benefit of your daughter. This of course, is not really a family law issue, but more an estate planning/Wills and Trusts issue.
The recommendation that 100% of support payments be earmarked for spousal support means that 100% of the payment will be tax deductable to the payor spouse and 100% taxable as income to the payee spouse. This provides a benefit to your x; not to you. Your suspicions may be correct.
I believe the court cannot grant the bifurcation if both parties have not yet exchanged their preliminary declarations of disclosure. What happened at the trial setting conference? Was a trial date set? Your other two motions should not be impacted by his request for a continuance of the bifurcation hearing.
I think you may have a problem with the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Freedom of speech unfortunately includes the right to make "nasty" remarks about other people. The statements she is posting may be actionable under certain circumstances, but without knowing what she is posting, I'd say you're out of luck. You might want to consult with an attorney and let that attorney see the posts on facebook and decide whether it is worth pursuing.
A signed and notarized agreement is legally binding and enforceable. Depending on the terms and how you want to change them, you may be able to simply move for an order modifying the spousal support provision, for example. You should have an attorney review your documents and the agreement and advise you as to your options. There's really not enough information in this question to assist you further.
The community ends with the date of separation. You can file for legal separation, but you don't have to, to establish a date of separation. Date of separation occurs when the parties have come to a parting of the ways with no present intent to resume their marriage and their conduct evidences a complete and final break in the marital relationship. You do not have to move out or otherwise physically separate to have a date of separation. You need at least one spouse to entertain the...
Other than filing your petition for dissolution and other than your spouse filing his/her response, has anything else been filed by you or your spouse? If not, that's why you are not yet divorced. The court does not take care of that for you. You have to file your own judgment paperwork. http://www.courts.ca.gov/1035.htm
If properly authenticated, they are admissible as relevant to the issue of funds available to pay support. Plus, if it is your own business, the community will likely have a monetary interest in the business. Again - IF PROPERLY AUTHENTICATED - authentication usually comes from obtaining the records by subpoena and having the records authenticated by the custodian of records. On the other hand, some judges are looser than others when it comes to the rules of evidence. Bottom line, yes,...
