Marriage took place in CA. Currently we both live in NJ, and have for several years since. I do not wish to see my spouse period. We are both compliant with the divorce. Can paperwork take care of this, or is a court appearance mandatory?
you can do an uncontested divorce in which case only one of you will have to attend court. In NJ you cannot get divorced without at least one person going to court. If you have all the issues figured out it will be a fairly cheap and quick uncontested divorce. Most lawyers charge a flat rate for this type of service, usually under $1000See question
I received a letter (not a summons - haven't been sued yet) from Pressler informing me that my credit card account with Chase, purchased by Midland Funding LLC, has been placed with Pressler for collection. The debt is definitely mine. My last pay...
you can challenge the statute of limitations in court however most likely the court will apply the NJ statute of 6 years since the agreement was made in NJ. If you receive a summons and complaint you can file a motion to dismiss based on statute of limitations.
If you decide to make a deal with Pressler, make sure you get a written copy of the agreement signed by both parties before you make any payments. the agreement must state that they are accepting X amount of dollars to settle the account in full and will dismiss any claims with prejudice upon your payment.
Of course you are likely to get a better deal if you have an attorney represent you. This might make economic sense if the amount of debt is large enough to justify paying for an attorney.
years ago. Between credit cards and our mortgage, we owe more than we make. I just finished breast cancer treatment and now there are medical bills. I had to buy health insurance which is not affordable but I had to have it. Husband had simult...
sounds like chapter 7 may be a good option for you to discharge your debts. however a lot depends on the amount of equity you have in your home. If it is above the exemption limit, you might have to consider filing for chapter 13 bankruptcy to be able to keep your home and discharge all the unsecured debt (credit cards, medical bills, etc.)
either way you should schedule a consultation with a bankruptcy attorney to review your options and decide what is best. many attorneys including myself offer free consultations. without reviewing all the facts it is difficult to determine if chapter 7 is your best optionSee question
I had credit card debt from Bank of America which was sold to CACH. I am in New Jersey but my understanding is the statue of limitations for me to get sued is 3 years because it is Bank of America from Delaware, is 3 years based on their custome...
Statute of limitation on contract cases is 6 years in NJ. I assume that you applied for the credit card while in NJ so NJ law would apply. However if the agreement with Bank of America expressly states that the terms of the agreement are to be governed by DE law, then you have an argument,.See question

I have no choice but to live with my (soon to be ex) husband. I'm a stay at home mom with no savings and he can't afford two places. Can we still file legal separation? How long do we have to live apart to file for divorce?
there is no such thing as legal separation in NJ, you are either divorced or married. You can file for divorce right away so long as you have had irreconcilable differences for 6 months or more and have lived in NJ for a year or more. There are other causes of action such as separation for a period of time, however for the most part cause of action does not matter in NJ as it is a no fault state and most people file under irreconcilable differences for 6 months or more.
You do not have to live apart to file for divorce.
Items take were 41 dollars in nj, I am willing to pay fines and costs and restitution
plea deals are very common in shoplifting cases. there are many factors to consider though, your past criminal history, value of the items, the particular town, etc. sometimes an attorney can get the case dismissed. in other cases he/she would be able to work out a deal with the prosecutor for a lesser charge or get you into a program (PTI) which upon completion would allow you to have the charge dismissedSee question

Call the opposing counsel and see if they will agree to an adjournment of the motion for one cycle. Usually this is not a problem. Once you have consent call the court clerk and ask for an adjournment so you can file a response.See question
He has worked under the table for over three years of our 8 year marriage
You don't provide enough details here. Alimony is always a possibility. His cheating is usually not a factor as nj is a no fault state.See question
Both claim to have separate lives, but because her grandchildren don't know their fathers, he helped raise them until 3 years ago. Now his wife is calling and asking for favors and money for the kids, she says he can't say no to them it's not righ...
I am not exactly sure what your question is. Sounds like your "fiancée" needs to get divorce from his wife. Until he gets divorced and married to you, you don't really have any rights as to how he spends his money or who gets it. Doesn't matter if they live separate lives, they are still legally married, same as if they lived together.
he is not obligated to support his grandchildren, only his biological or adopted children. You should both schedule a consultation with a family law attorney to explore whatever options are available.
