    I agree with all other answers, but if the matter just became contested, then it is unlikely that you are on the verge of trial. A case becomes contested when your spouse does not agree to comply or agree, so try to speak with your attorney before moving on. I always inform my clients that the course of their divorce is based upon what they want AND what their spouse wants.

    It sounds like you are in the middle of an action already. If you are, and you have a law guardian appointed to determine custodial arrangements, then that law guardian / Attorney for the child should be notified. If your daughter likes the other girl and sees her on visits to her father, then you should allow her to talk to the girl. He should not be telling her that she is her 'sister' (but the term is sometimes used in a 'friendship' situation) but the discussions about 'living with him' are...

    This is a matter for a practicing elder law attorney. Depending upon what you signed, you may be liable, but that is fact-dependent. Contact an elder law attorney as soon as possible as you have a limited time to answer.

    This would depend upon the wording of your Judgment of Divorce / separation agreement. Chances are that if the father is not involved, then he is less likely to fight you in court, but it is never advised to do something contrary to the terms of your Judgment. I recommend speaking with an attorney on this and bringing all papers with you for review.

    I am not sure what your question is, but if you are seeking a modification you must complete all necessary financial paperwork and document your financial circumstances with bank statements, pay stubs, tax returns and proof of occupancy. If you are working with an attorney, provide the attorney with those documents as soon as possible. Please note that you must be informed that any time you do not pay your mortgage you run the risk of foreclosure. Though it may never happen, you should...

    I think you need to check what you actually signed to renew the lease. If the lease you signed renewed your tenancy, then it should establish that your tenancy continue. Review the documents again and contact a local attorney.

    You should also challenge any signature on the document as not being your own. DO NOT sign anything else. Follow the advice of my colleagues here.

    No, this does not even happen in marriage. Just be careful about having joint accounts, as they could be restrained by one of her creditors.

    The change would have to come from the NY legislature. Consult an attorney as soon as possible. There is a 'continuous treatment' exception, but you need to consult with an attorney to lay out all facts.
