Her payments fell behind on the house she owns (mainly due to no support from her ex-spouse). Anyway she does not live at that residence - no one does. She received a letter from a lawyer stating that she is being sued for the balance. Is this ...
Your sister's house was sold to pay off the mortgage. The difference between the amount that the house sold for, which hopefully was fair market value, and the amount due on the mortgage, is called the deficiency. She is still liable for the deficiency. If her husband was on the mortgage, he is also liable for it. Different banks handle the deficiency differently.
The question of what to do now needs to be asked of a bankruptcy lawyer. Generally they handle collections cases as well. I am re-posting this question in that category.See question
My ex husband and I share 50/50 custody of our two daughters for the past two years. I had custody and gave him 50/50 two years ago when he moved to my area. Our children attend the school in my zone by my address. Now, we are thinking of enrol...
Many factors go into determining the best interests of the children. The address at which the school district believes the children live is not really a factor if the actual living arrangements do not change. The courts in PA favor 50-50 custody arrangements. If father tries to move from the area and take the children with him, he would have to prove that it is in their best interests, as you would if you wished to move from the area. But since both of you are in the same school district, I do not believe, absent any other facts, that the court would be willing to change the schedule in his favor.See question
We've been married for 29 years he's an alcoholic we both live in the house he's cheating on me I want a divorce will I get half the house or not even though it's only in his name
I agree with Mr. Noble's answer. I would like to emphasize that you have rights to the house. Over 29 years, the house would have increased in value, even with the market downturn. So even if the house is pre-marital, you have rights to some amount of value in it for which he will have to compensate you.See question

This question requires the expertise of either a consumer debt lawyer or a landlord-tenant lawyer. This is the family law section, so I have re-classified it.See question
My husband was paying child support and then the support dept. as well as the Mother closed the case because she went to jail and lost her child and now that she is out she wants child support again. We don't even know if she has the Child back or...
Child support belongs to the child and not the parent. The answer, therefore, is yes, if she has custody again, then she can file for child support. If she does not have the child, then she cannot file. Keep in mind that whoever has the child can always file against your husband.See question
I have a 15 year old. I have been paying her mother under the table for 8 years. She is now getting a divorce and wants to go to court to get more money. I also have a 6 year old who lives with me who I am the primary care taker for. My 15 year ol...
Child support is not based upon the age of the child. You can see what is involved in the calculation at the link here: http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/231/chapter1910/231_1910.pdf. You may be required to help pay for the cyber-school, however, you also may be able to get out of it if you opposed it. You either need to post more facts in a separate question or speak with an attorney.See question

Cases are governed by the laws in effect at the time of the filing. You could withdraw your complaint and then re-file.See question
My ex is claiming I owe him $900 for fees incurred while on a vacation- plane ticket, restaurant, and hotel fees (he went on vacation with me and willfully paid for both of us). I never agreed to pay him for this. Would this hold up in court?
If the two of you are divorced or were never married, he would have to prove some kind of oral contract. If he paid for everything, I think it would be hard for him to prove this.See question
My daughter passed away she was 17 and me and my wife are divorced and we're currently looking at attorneys. Do we get an even split or can I retain my own attorney
This needs to be in the personal injury section, not divorce. I am re-categorizing it for you.See question
My wife's lawyer quit working for her as she wasn't cooperating. it's been months now and My lawyer filled paperwork and said it's up to judge now. Been about 3 months and almost 4 years since we legally separated.
There is a point in the procedures where she is in contempt of court. The procedures depend upon where you are in the divorce process. If she is refusing to turn over financial information, you may file a contempt petition based upon that refusal. If discovery is complete, you can simply file for appointment of a master (if your county uses masters). If no economic issues, you can file for the divorce decree.See question
