In general, property owned before the marriage is considered separate property and not subject to equitable distribution in a divorce. Separate property is not divided when a couple divorces. Instead, each spouse gets to keep his or her own separate property, except to the extent that the other spouse has contributed to its increase in value. Depending on a number of factors, your wife may be entitled to a portion of the appreciation in the value of the property during the marriage, especially if she can prove that she has made some contribution to the appreciation in the value of the property during the marriage. Equitable distribution does not mean she gets half. The allocation of marital property depends on a number of factors considered by the court. You should retain a good divorce lawyer to protect your rights.See question

You need to get a lawyer to straighten this out for you. You need to get before a judge or magistrate in the issuing state. Phone calls are not going to get you anywhere. There are some basic questions. Which state issued the original child support order? Apparently the order that was issued by another state, was registered in Florida. How did she move a minor child out of state without your being informed? Is there no custody order? www.ctfamlaw.comSee question
How long do I have to file/report a trespass complaint (criminal, first degree) against someone in CT? (Class A misdemeanor)
The criminal action must be brought within one year. Conn. Gen. Stat. Ann. §§ 54-193 et seq. That means the State's Attorney must start the criminal action in that time. The person making the complaint, first goes to the police and files the complaint. The police and then the State's Attorney investigate and the State's Attorney decides whether to prosecute. So if you want to make a complaint, you should go to the police immediately. If you delay it will affect your credibility with the authorities.See question

You may be entitled to a civil restraining order. In Connecticut, you are entitled to a restraining order if you are subjected to "a continuous threat of present physical pain or physical injury, stalking or a pattern of threatening, including, but not limited to, a pattern of threatening." CGS 46b-15. It sounds like you are describing threatening behavior and a form of stalking. If the court issues a restraining order, then the perpetrator would be arrested if she violates the order and could face felony charges You should consult an attorney to give you the best chance of getting an order entered.See question

Your situation is unclear from you post. When you say "not yet divorced," does that mean that a divorce has been filed, but it is not yet finalized and that you're paying pursuant to a pendente lite support order? Or is there no divorce filed, but you are paying pursuant to an child support order issued by the court?See question
I filed for divorce he unwilling to take the parenting class
In divorce cases involving children and in custody cases there is a requirement that each parent attend mandatory parenting class and submit proof of attendance to the court. Most of the time, failure to attend the class will not prevent the court from entering judgment, although it is up to the judge. It is possible that a judge would not allow the divorce to become final without the certification of attendance, but I haven't seen it happen.See question

If he continues to miss child support payments, you should contact the Department of Social Services, Office of Support Enforcement, who will file a motion for contempt on your behalf. You and also ask them to file a motion to modify child support to increase the payments. You are entitled to modification if there has been a substantial change in circumstances since the existing support order was issued by the court. As for modification of the custody to "regulate visitation," this must be done in Superior Court in the judicial district in which the original custody order was issued. Again, you file a motion for modification of custody and visitation and you must allege a change in circumstances showing that the existing order is no longer in the child's best interests. www.ctfamlaw.comSee question
Adopting a child in ct and dcf worker is saying they will still check in on us after the adoption but the foster care agency is telling us they do not do that
