    Yes and no. In the context of a divorce there are two relationships of which you should be aware. The first is the relationship between you, your wife, and your creditors. The second is between you, your wife, and the court. Since your creditors are not a party to divorce, the court cannot order them to do anything.

    This question could not be answered without knowing additional information, including, but not limited to, is there a court action pending, are there any orders made, has law enforcement been involved, has any child or parent been the victim of domestic violence, etc. You will have to consult an attorney for a thorough investigation into the facts of your case in order to answer your question accurately as it is very factually dependent.

    The answer is probably no. Since your marriage is one of long duration, the court would retain jurisdiction over the issue of spousal support indefintiely unless you waived that right or the court terminated it in your judgment of dissolution. Even if that right had not been waived or terminated, it is unlikely that a court would order it after 30 years.

  5. Can I change my legal separation into a divorce if I have not served the other party yet? If so what do I need to do that?

    Yes. File an amended Petition but check the box for dissolution this time. You will then serve the amended Petition for dissolution instead. Do not serve the original Petition for Legal Separation.
